don't nobody bring up the trainwreck that is Vanity Fair
Fantastic book, the movie with Reese Witherspoon... not so much. The complete rewrite of the ending didn't help matters either. And Reese being so likeable overall was actually helping Becky's persona too!
Wizard of Oz
movie never fails to put me to sleep, but adore the book. Hell, I even adore the russian bootleg versions (if you know what I'm talking about, +1 geek to you)
Count of Monte Cristo
90s[?] or was it
2002 movie was pretty shit. Looked gorgeous, but seemed to have forgotten that the entire point of the story is carefully laid out plans, not tons of pretty swordfights
for Isaac Asimov in movie form adaptation has been shit. I, Robot
and Bicentennial Man
movies, looking at you
for Philip K. Dick - Paycheck
(remember, Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman? Woo does the usual high action chases?), Minority Report
(3 fuckin' endings! my respect for Speilberg never recovered), The Adjustment Bureau
(again, it looks so good.. and then that ending... *rage*)
and my biggest gripe of all time - Where the Wild Things Are
. If you need me to explain this,...you've either not seen it, or probably enjoyed it a bit? i dunno... this was just all sorts of bad movie
can comicbooks count BTW? 'cause then The Surrogates
is on this list too. The movie rewrites the ending, thus making the whole thing lose its punch
Movie better than book
The Shawshank Redemption aka Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.
At least the movie organized the overall plot to actually go somewhere
