Top Ten Best Movie Adaptations

This is a list about movies that successfully adapt things such as comics, books, TV shows, etc.

The Top Ten

1 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

This is a phenomenal conclusion and a great adaptation of the books that deserves all the recognition that it gets - LS27

Yep, in my opinion this is the second best movie ever. - 2storm

2 Spider-Man

I know that this film can be pretty silly, but I still think it's a great adaptation of the comics that it's based on. - LS27

3 Dragon Ball Super: Broly

This is by far the best DBZ film of them all. With a great plot, mind-blowing animation, a ton of funny moments, and some of the best fights to ever be put on screen, it's a great adaptation of the anime and if that doesn't convince you, then Gogeta and his bad-assery definitely will. - LS27

4 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

This is a perfect conclusion to a legendary trilogy based on the books that will always be remembered as Dreamworks' absolute best. I highly recommend it! - LS27

5 Shazam!

This is a phenomenal adaptation and easily the best DCEU film to date. With great humor, lots of action, great acting, and some great references, this is one of the best adaptations out there. Also, if DC keeps going in this direction w/ the rest of their films, then they can finally compete w/ the MCU - LS27

6 The Mask

With great humor, action, and a great Jim Carrey performance, this is a great adaptation of the comics(minus the comics insane gore and swearing) - LS27

7 Batman (1989)

While I do love The Dark Knight, I still love the original Tim Burton movie with it's great acting, gothic atmosphere, and great accuracy to the comics - LS27

8 Logan

Not only a great X-Man movie but a great movie in general.

This is my favorite X-Men/Wolverine film! With it's great story, a great final performance from Hugh Jackman, and it's blood-soaked R rating, I love this movie and admire the risk that Marvel took with it. - LS27

9 The Dark Knight

I know I'm cheating with putting two Batman films on the list, but I love this one so much that I can't leave it off of. One sentence review: Heath Ledger as the Joker - LS27

10 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

This is, without a doubt, an awesome conclusion to this legendary franchise. With great characters, a strong story, a full-on war of great scale, and great final performances from all the actors, it's the best Harry Potter film and a great adaptation of the books - LS27

Eh. I may be in the minority, but I found this movie pretty boring.

28 Alita: Battle Angel

Most underrated movie of 2019. I feel bad for this film since this was blamed for the box office bomb of Dark Pheonix.
