Although normally I prefer the books to the movies, old classics are ones I have a hard time reading. I just can't get into them, and I know I'm not the only one with that issue. Although I do read some classics (like, on my own for fun, not because they were assigned in class) Charles Dickens is just one author I don't read on my own. He has amazing books, and I would like to read them, but I just can't ever seem to do so.
So that is why I prefer movies over books for old classics. It's easier to watch them and see what is happening than to be cumbered down by language and such. This movie looks pretty well done, and hopefully will be good.
So what book-to-movie adaptation are you wanting to see?
