This is just a general rant because I can't help myself. *fans face* I read The Horse Whisperer and I had to do a bit of a double take and while I won't spoil it completely, those who have read it probably know this rant all too well. The ending is far different than the book.



I hate when people do that. Yes, I realize that they only have so long to get a movie done but c'mon, people. You just don't change the ending. That's like messing with a family tradition or a family recipe that's been passed down through the lines. You simply don't do it. I don't care what your reasoning is. I had a similar complaint with Blood and Chocolate. I have my doubts about the upcoming Vampire Academy movie, as well. Every book I enjoy, even marginally, gets messed up when it is made into a movie.

Hollywood does that all the time when making a movie based off a book and/or comic. Some are tweaked more than others, it's okay to change some of it but not the ending. Let the ending be that same as the book.

The ending to the I Am Legend movie was drastically different than the book. to this day I really don't know which one did it better... both where in their own way big pieces of ambiguous crap.

It happens way too often to count. So, nowadays, I just tell myself that the movie is in an alternate timeline. Problem solved.
