Top Movies Based On Books


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Golden Compass
42 To Kill a Mockingbird

36? How? It's one of the greatest films ever. Beautifully acted and paced, amazing cinematography, and one of the greatest movie characters ever. - naFrovivuS

This should be higher above the list!

43 The Fault In Our Stars

This movie is just incredible, it really gave my summer a great start

The only movie which makes me cry & one of the best movie ever made

Best Movie, even better book!

44 Vertigo
45 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
46 The Jungle Book (2016)
47 No Country for Old Men

Come on! It's a classic movie. Great directing and acting. One of the best movies ever made.

48 Misery

Definitely! The best psychological thriller ever written! I do prefer the film to the book, though. - Britgirl

49 Lolita
50 And Then There Were None
51 The Mist
52 The Maltese Falcon
53 I, Robot

Back in the 80s Hollywood was trying really hard to adapt Isaac Asimov's book, I, Robot, but it was impossible to make at that time so they decided to do an illustrated screenplay of the movie instead (the whole movie as a book with some pictures in it). now that technology has advanced, we can now adapt Asimov's book like we did with the 2004 adaptation.

I actually have the illustrated screenplay. and it looks a lot more creative than the Will Smith version.

54 Coraline
55 James and the Giant Peach
56 Fantastic Mr. Fox
57 Blade Runner
58 The Secret of NIMH

This is not on the list?! The book is great, but the movie is horrible!

This movie and the book are both great and need to be in the top 10ss for its dark subject matter, adventure, traditional Don Bluth animation and characters with their own personalites. - The Ultimate Daredevil

59 Matilda

This movie got me through some tough times. I love Matilda. You'll always be a number one to me.
