2001: A Space Odyssey was on par with the book it was based on, but 2010: Odyssey 2 was better than the book.
well the book and film of 2001 came out at the same time but whatever
I know no one will agree, but I liked Lord of the Rings much better while watching it. The books included too much ''folklore'' elements, I really didn't like that.
Eyes Wide Shut
A series of unfortunate events.
There was old concept art for the movies where it showed, from underneath a Tour Boat, a T-Rex balancing on the bottom of the river with its head near the surface like a Crocodile
V for Vendetta. Both are good, but the movie is just better.
the lawyer was a badass in the book. He gets attacked by a raptor and just picks it up and throws it off.
I don't think the T-Rex was swimming, it was standing on the bottom of the pool.
I... I didn't even know half the movies listed here started as books.
I saw Fight Club this year for the first time. It was incredible. A hell of a lot deeper than I thought it would be.
I don't see why everyone thinks the book is writing made gold.
It was boring, I couldn't give a rats arse what happened to the characters and it lacked any sort of common sense.
"WE HAVE TO PLAY CHESS HARRY TO GET TO THE STONE!"
*blows the chess pieces to ash with a spell*
"Well, that was impressive! one of us might have almost died!"
So technically, both were crap but the movie wasn't boring.
Odd cases ? Most movies based on books are better than the books.
Waaay better then Stephen King's original book
