Making a beloved book into a movie is always tricky, and fans of the book are often disappointed. But there are a few rare examples when Hollywood actually makes a film better than the book . Though director Mary Harron's 2000 adaptation remained mostly faithful to the tome, she was able to mine the dark humor, the gore becoming more social commentary than just sociopathic. And yeah Christian Bale hacking Jared Leto with an axe while critiquing Huey Lewis and The News is always a win.

Former Liberal justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould says the release of a new book that details her final controversial days in the Trudeau government ahead of next week's federal election was not timed to exact revenge on the prime minister.

Wilson-Raybould, who served as Canada’s first Indigenous justice minister and attorney general, made the comments in an exclusive interview with Global News’ Dawn Friesen on Tuesday.

She resigned from Trudeau’s cabinet in early 2019 following a clash over how a potential criminal case against Quebec engineering giant SNC-Lavalin should be handled.

  Ethan Hawke on Paul Newman, Marvel and What's Wrong With Today's Movies Ethan Hawke came to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival to receive the President's Award and to show Paul Schrader's masterful 2017 film "First Reformed," a dark drama in which Hawke gives one of his finest and most complex performances as a former military chaplain fighting despair. But the actor also came to the Czech town at an extraordinarily busy time in his career: The past several years have seen the four-time Oscar-nominated actor and writer acting in "First Reformed," "Juliet, Naked," "The Truth" and "Stockholm," among others; directing "Blaze," a sharp and lyrical film about cult musician Blaze Foley; acting in and producing the massive Showtime mini

Think the book is always better than the movie adaptation? For some, a childhood favorite film couldn't compete with the book read as an adult, like The Wizard of Oz , Mary Poppins , or The Princess Bride . For others, the book might have been OK or even good , but the movie was just so phenomenal it overshadowed its source material, like The Shawshank Redemption or The Godfather .

In a political memoir titled 'Indian in the Cabinet: Speaking Truth to Power', published Tuesday, Wilson-Raybould alleges Justin Trudeau wanted her to lie to Canadians about what had happened, writing, “This man was not the leader I thought him to be."

“It's not my moment of revenge,” Wilson-Raybould told Friesen about publishing the book just days before the Sept. 20 election, in which Trudeau is seeking a third term in office.

She said she had announced her publication date well before the snap election was called by the Liberal leader last month.

“I feel that my experiences in government and relaying those experiences and the lessons that I've learned are important to tell," she said. "I wanted to tell them.”

Hello, The Shining is a great example of the movie being better than the book . If you're reading this, there are Spoilers ahead. I don't feel to bad discussing this as it has been like 30 years since it came out and you have had your chance.

While I also love the book , I think it's a difficult read because it's pretty long and the language isn't that straightforward. The movie 's writers definitely removed some parts from the book , but I think it helped it flow so much more." " The book is brilliant and unpredictable, but the TV show manages to capture the unfolding sense of dread, control, and tension in the household more so than the novel. Plus, Patricia Clarkson was flawless." —sunshine193. 22. The Princess Bride (1987). 20 th Century Studios.

In the book, Wilson-Raybould describes conversations she had with Trudeau about what would later become publicly known as the SNC-Lavalin affair.

During a press conference on Saturday, Trudeau rejected the claims made by Wilson-Raybould in the book about wanting her to lie.

“I did not want her to lie. I would never do that. I would never ask her that,” he said. “That is simply not true.”

In August 2019, a federal ethics commissioner report concluded that Trudeau had violated conflict of interest rules by attempting to interfere in the corruption case against SNC-Lavalin.

The firm had been charged with corruption over its dealings with the Libyan government but, citing the importance of saving jobs, the government starting exploring the possibility of striking a deal — a deferred prosecution agreement. Wilson-Raybould, who was serving as justice minister at the time, was opposed to the deal.

Well I liked the fact that while the book is solely in Katniss's perspective, the movie portrays sides you don't get in the book like the control room with the Gamemakers that was cool! Or the relationship between Snow and Crane also brand new material. I thought that added a lot to my understanding I prefered The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Great Gatsby as films. As you can probably guess I am not a big fan of Fitzgeralds writing style. I don't like the lack of emotion and excitment in his stories, but I thought the films brought it all out really well ! I was dead set on not watching Great

“I had not realized until being in the centre of perceived power in government as a cabinet minister, how deeply entrenched partisanship is,” Wilson-Raybould told Global News.

“The hyper nature of partisanship and the blind loyalty that I experienced is corrosive,” she said.

Despite that, Wilson-Raybould says she did not regret the time she spent in federal politics.

In 2015, Wilson-Raybould became Canada’s first Indigenous justice minister and attorney general—- a feat she said she is still “incredibly proud” of.

After being ousted by the Liberal party in April 2019, Wilson-Raybould ran as an Independent candidate for Vancouver-Granville in the last federal election. She became the first woman to be elected as an Independent member of the Canadian Parliament.

Earlier in July, Wilson-Raybould announced she will not seek re-election and will instead shift her focus to working outside of federal politics to create change for Indigenous people.

Angelina Jolie Says She 'Fought' with Brad Pitt Over Harvey Weinstein: 'Of Course It Hurt'

  Angelina Jolie Says She 'Fought' with Brad Pitt Over Harvey Weinstein: 'Of Course It Hurt' "I never associated or worked with him again," Angelina Jolie said of Harvey Weinstein, years after the alleged abuse she faced during the 1998 film Playing By HeartThe three-time Golden Globe winner, 46, addressed the alleged abuse she faced during the 1998 Weinstein-produced film Playing By Heart, in which she starred at age 21, noting in an interview with The Guardian's Weekend magazine that she downplayed the encounter at the time.

Speaking about her personal experience as an Indigenous woman in the cabinet, she told Global News she has faced discrimination and racism throughout her life and career.

“I know that this is an experience that many women and individuals have in their work lives and it highlights for me how much we still have to do to ensure that all voices are heard, to eliminate systemic problems and discrimination — implicit or otherwise bias in our systems of government," she said.

By retelling her story in her book, the 50-year-old is hopeful other Canadians can learn some lessons.

“I would say to any young Indigenous person, young or old, to any Canadian, that your voice matters and to get involved in politics," she said.

With at least 75 candidates, a record number of Indigenous people are running in the federal election this year compared to 62 in 2019. Wilson-Raybould said there is more work to be done.

“We still have a long way to go to ensure that we're not just saying we have diversity, for example, within our political party .… but we actually have to act on that diversity and listen to those diverse voices,” she said.

“I'm going to continue to exercise my voice. And I hope other people do as well.”
