Movies Based on Books 2017 -- I always find that the best movies are based on books. I mean, it must be a great story to be made into a movie, right? Okay, the books are usually better but it's so much fun to give it the benefit of the doubt. Some movies can really surprise you, like The BFG and The Hunger Games. It's a new year and that means lots of new movies to watch and books to read. Here's a list of books to read before you watch the movie.
I love Matt Damon's take on the franchise: "(On James Bond) He's repulsive. Bond is an imperialist, misogynist, sociopath who goes around bedding women and swilling martinis and killing people. The movies have a formula, they stick to it, and it makes them a lot of money. They know what they are doing and they're going to keep doing it."
