Which, if any, movies did you think did justice to their books?

Which movies did you think did not represent the books at all?

Were there any movies you thought were even better than the book?

Okay most movies that are made I have no idea are based on books unless I've read the book lol

Which, if any, movies did you think did justice to their books? Harry Potter for sure! Well, the last one I didn't think did a really great job on following the book, but it was still good.

New Moon! Loved it.

Which movies did you think did not represent the books at all? Flowers in the Attic. Okay, I know it was made in the late 80's early 90's but c'mon. It sucked.

Family Album (movie based on Danielle Steel book) Again, an older movie, but they just left out soooo much

Twilight! Omg horrible!

Were there any movies you thought were even better than the book? The Notebook and I haven't seen it yet, but the Time Traveler's Wife looks like an awesome movie compared to the book

I've heard great things about the Harry Potter movies but I have yet to see one in its entirety though. The kids keep interrupting!

Too bad they botched Twilight but at least they did better with New Moon. Is Eclipse going to have the same director? I think I'm going to watch them after they all come out - same goes for Harry Potter.

I've heard that The Notebook was great. Again I have yet to see it. I never get to see movies anymore.

I thought Forrest Gump was waaaaay better than the book. I hated the book. It was just an awful read and I don't normally say that about books.

And I thought that The Bridges of Madison County was just as good as the book.
