Book to novel adaptations.
Why do some many directors take people's favourite novels and alter the storylines so much they become utter trash? These include, changing the sex of lead roles from female to male because no one would believe in a strong female lead role, adding Characters, storylines or major plot motivations with no concern as to how the character in the story interacted originally. Also not including beloved characters from the story because of budget, the way they changed the plot etc. Sorry I could rant about this for days. Any thoughts?
