The Divide – Smart Choice or Stupid Decision

Side-note – Hollywood is out of ideas and is using books now.

Book to movie adaptions are becoming more and more popular these days.  Anyways, as they are becoming more popular, the fact that Hollywood splits up the book into a 2 part movie just makes me mad…

Here is the list out some book to movie adaptations that are split up . . .

  • Twilight: Breaking Dawn
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  • The Hobbit
  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

Okay I cheated a bit on some – The Hobbit was one book split into 3 films – but still, there is a general problem here. If a book isn’t that long, they will still attempt to get 2 movies out of it. Harry Potter and Twilight have valid reasons for splitting their respective books (those books are relatively long – Harry Potter = 759 pages; Twilight: Breaking Dawn = 756 pages).

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and The Hobbit had no reason to…their books are under 700 words for sure. Basically, this is just a horrible situation if Hollywood decides to split every book into several films. And the next victim to this would be Divergent: Allegiant.

Someone stop Hollywood please…
