Top Ten Movies Based on Books that are Better Than the BookA list of fiction book-to-movie adaptations that improve upon their source material. Includes movies based on novels and short stories; does NOT include nonfiction (so I did not include Schindler's List, for example).
The Top Ten
Yep, I agree with this one, though the book is really good too. - Undistinguished
I'd say it's a tie. - Undistinguished
No. The book is way better, at least to me. - Undistinguished
All the Harry Potter books are better than the films.
Just have Fantastic Beast movie series and the award winning stage play.
Both are ok.
But it would've been more interesting to have seen Vernon's day at work seeing McGonagall in cat form and all the other witches and wizards, Peeves, the Librarian, Professor Binns, Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff Quidditch Match and Harry sees Quirrell and Snape in the forest after the match, more of the centaurs, Snape's protection for the stone.
No, the books are really a lot better. - Undistinguished
I definitely agree that all the Harry Potter books are better - except for this one. - Y2K
Pretty obvious cause the movie is incredibly well received, and hardly anyone knows the book. - micahisthebest
I believe that. - ParasN2000
Anyway all the fandom behave like Caillou with the movie so whatever.
Did you notice film version Harry Potter hair isn't black, his eyes aren't green, his scar isn't in the middle of his forehead.
Forget the nitpicking this was about 2 fit blokes. YUM.
Can be smitten by Eragon
What? calm down.
Sorry But WHO TF PUT THIS ON HERE THIS WAS THE WORST MOVIE EVER EVEN WORSE THAN SAVING CHRISTMAS (in my opinion) AND I EVEN WATCHED THE MOVIE FIRST
I agree with this one because the movie is more timely than the book.
I usually say books are better than films but this was better than book.
It's a tie between the film & the book! The film is a timeless masterpiece as well, Harper lee fanboys. Don't listen to Roger Ebert!
The book is better, and is more timeless than the movie. - Y2K
Damn wrong. - Undistinguished
One of the best movies ever but not one of the best books though.
I dunno it's a good musical but..
Oz in the book was not a dream.
I wonder what the plots of the 13 other books are yeah there are 14 books altogether.
The book has its moments, but is pretty dry. - truckturner
I like Forrest Gump in the movie better, plus the movie is more encouraging, dramatic and smoother.
I bet the books are more inappropriate.
And the final movie.
Sorry but it's supposed to be dark comedy.
Twilight fans even if you love Bella/Edward, I still feel like Bella/Jacob should've happened.
Never heard of the book.
How many have?
