Never Judge A Book By Its Movie T-Shirt


Love this new shirt from Snorg Tees. After all, books are almost always better than the movies they are made into, although not always. To Kill A Mockingbird and East of Eden are two movies based on books I enjoyed just as much as the books. But I don’t really think of them as movies based on books as I do separate masterpieces of art that happen to share the same name. On the far opposite end isĀ Simon Birch, theĀ movie adaptation of A Prayer For Owen Meany I couldn’t get myself to watch after seeing the trailer.
