Worst Movie Adaptations of All Time

Films that were bad and based off of anything counts, ex: comic book, book, true story, and T.V. shows, cartoons. These two I added, you guys can add the rest because I have not seen any other ones so I can't judge them thanks.

The Top Ten

The Last Airbender The Last Airbender Product Image

Based off of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon called 'Avatar The Last Airbender'. The Last Airbender tried and failed to make characters be likable and 3d and the writing, directing was not good at all I mean the comic relief in the show Sokka is a very funny character "Smoochy Smoochy someone's in love! " In the movie he's a serious and emotionless guy until the end when his love interest dies but he's just not as cool as he was in the show. Watch Avatar The Last Airbender if you haven't because even though it's a cartoon, it makes it up with brilliant writing and bad-ass fighting scenes. Don't watch the movie, its bad and in insult to the makers of the original show

The effects are horrible, it turns well developed characters into a bore, everyone is whitewashed (except the Fire Nation, I think), and I was bored and irritated at the same time for the entire duration. Only watch it once to make fun of it, then avoid it afterwards forever.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is the best cartoon of all time and this movie, The Last Airbender, is horrible and is a disgrace to the cartoon. Mispronounced named, bad acting, wrong races, and is just an overall atrocious movie.

White washed, trash, a disgrace to the cartoon.

ATLA is my favorite cartoon ever so this movie really pissed me off.

The Legend of the Titanic The Legend of the Titanic Product Image

When I was a kid I was so confused on how the characters survived because I knew they didn't in the movie and in real life that it pissed me off to no end. I usually hate when characters die when I was a kid but I knew that this movie shouldn't have everyone survive.

Don't wanna scare little kids then make it less scary but not a happy ending when everybody survives.

I remember watching it, even as a kid I knew it was sooo ATROCIOUS. lol you cannot even conceive how bad it is until you actually watch it.

The octopus put the titanic back together?! This movie is so offensive!

Patch Adams Patch Adams Product Image

This movie is just so offensive on so many levels. It makes the real Hunter Adams look like a moron!

A pure, PURE abomination of an adaptation.

Twilight Twilight Product Image

The books weren't really that good either.

Batman & Robin Batman & Robin Product Image

Batman and Robin, in my opinion 'worst superhero movie I've seen' next to other bad superhero movies, but this one, I get that it was aimed towards kids because of the ice related puns and the kid friendly movie, but does a good kids movie translate into a good movie for everyone? I'm guessing that comic book fans were not expecting this but, hey thanks to the failure of this, Christopher Nolan changed everything and saved Batman. Heath Ledger's Joker was more than spot on, it was 400% amazing! Batman and Robin was bad and I think the only closely good actor is Poison Ivy. Bad: Batman and Robin and Good: Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

The Cat in the Hat The Cat in the Hat Product Image

To this very day I regret ever seeing this movie. Even as a kid I couldn't figure out what was happening in this film

I liked this film...

All of these felt so empty. Lots of explosions and offensive gender roles. There are worse ones I'm sure, but this stuck out as being disappointing for being nothing like the old cartoon at all.
