Top Movies Based On Books


The Contenders: Page 3

41 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
42 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
43 No Country for Old Men

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

44 The Jungle Book (2016)
45 Divergent
46 Vertigo
47 Lolita
48 And Then There Were None
49 The Mist
50 The Maltese Falcon
51 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.

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

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

57 Matilda

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

58 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Another fantastic trilogy from the writer J.R. R Tolkien, though it is not as good as the lord of the rings!

59 The Fox and the Hound
60 Charlotte's Web
