I think the Harry Potter series is the only one I can think of right now, I will have to ask Jon when he gets home, he tends to remember that stuff better than I do

I didn't like the 2nd Harry Potter movie compared to the book ... but the 1st and 3rd rocked my socks.

I liked A Walk To Remember, even though it was completely different then the book.

LOTR ... obviously Come on now! I Heart Legolas.

Any John Grisham novel-turned-movie ...

Jurassic Park and The Lost World by Michael Crichton ... I was really disappointed with Sphere and Congo though ... Timeline was a great read but the movie wasn't as entertaining but Paul Walker, mmm mmm good!

The Green Mile by Stephen King. What a tragic, beautifully written/acted book/movie.


Quite a few!

I cant remember the title of the one I like but it has Natalie Portman where she has her baby in Walmart then a tornado distroys her home. Obviously more to the story but that's the shortened summary of it. Good movie and book.

My favorite is "The Big Sleep."

I also think the cartoon version of "Alice in Wonderland" is wonderful. It's one of my ds's favs!
