With The Hunger Games being the only thing people are talking about these days, I wanted to take a look back at some books that were made into movies in the 90’s. So in a Kanye move (never isn’t funny to me), Hunger Games, I’m gonna let you have your box office gold right now, but we gotta admit, the 90’s kicked ass when it came to book adaptations.
A Little Princess
This is one of the darkest movies I watched as a kid. I mean dead parents and kid slavery all set in a musty looking girls school. But one of the best quotes of the decade, “I am a princess. All girls are.” ‘nuff said.
Tom & Huck
90’s king Jonathan Taylor Thomas alongside Brad Renfro taught us that JTT is adorable no matter what century and also a little bit about the ever precocious Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
The Babysitters Club
To be fair, Goosebumps never did movie like this. So as far as series and the 90’s go, BSC is da’ bomb. Each girl represented someone we all knew and even ourselves and while I’m still iffy over Stacy and that older boy, I’ll forever treasure this VHS.
