    i loved the book twilight!!! but the movie was kind of a letdown because it was almost nothing like the book. i also read the whole series so i know whats going to happen anywhey

  3. Caitlyn

    Harry Potter and Twilight rock, but I would like to see the book Maximum Ride become a movie. Whether it’s Scholastic or not, it still rocks!!!!!

  4. Rita

    Awesome!I can’t wait to see what others think! So many books are being badly portrayed by Hollywood, either being way too sickeningly glamorized or just plain boring. The best book portrayl I think is of the Harry Potter series, considerng the movies stay closest to the books than others.

  7. Kailey

    I read Coraline then I went to see the movie. It was phenomonal! The screenplay was absolutely beautiful. Why aren’t all movies like this?

  8. skullcandy

    harry potter by far is the best and already own the first four movies and up to the last book

  9. annie

    i think that the harry potter movies aren’t as vidid as the books but are a lot more practical.

  14. Meg

    I liked the book Ashes of Roses. I’m not sure if it is a scholastic book or not. I read it at my school’s library.

  15. Aubrey

    The book I REALLY want to see hit the big screen is Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. But it would be really hard for them to make the part where Tiamat gets stuck in the portal between the Human World and the Dragon World. Sorry if that spoiled something if you’re reading it.

  16. emily

    twilight was a great book -more like awesome-but the movie had 7 mistakes in the first 10 minutes!!! It didn’t show a lot of slimilarities other than the plot, and the detial was lacking a bit. I give the movie half a thumb and the book three thumbs and a foot (jk)

  17. Toni A

    `my favorite movie is HSM3. It’s a awesome film and book. I think the film is better cause it gives more information than the book does. If I was directer i would have a show called The Toni Show. My mom, dad, sisters, and brother would be in it. if i chose a popstar it would be Sharpay Evans. A.K.A. Ashley tisdale
