Best Fiction Movies Made from Books


The Top Ten

1 The Maze Runner

Okay, I could make a book about all the reasons why this movie was a poor adaptation! They were so, so unfaithful, they could've changed the names and title and it could've passed off as different movie. Alby was not the alone for a full month on the Glade, they first sent a GROUP of people, who are all very likely dead right now. Everyone was too nice, there was no griever hole, just some weird door thing, and they hardly addressed each other by name. Someone who didn't read the book would've been so confused! Not to mention Thomas and Teresa don't have telepathy, making it weird to just "become friends" and making the beginning of the Scorch Trials made differently too. Alby didn't try to choke himself and I hardly even realized he died until later. I know, as a reader, I need to learn to handle adaptations, but nonetheless... I think it strayed too far. - keycha1n
