Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations

As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic: top ten best/worst movie adaptations. I split this list into seven best and three worst.


1. Stardust, a book by Neil Gaiman -I think I actually prefer the movies.

2. Harry Potter series – So much awesome.

3. Lord of the Rings series- I think these came out better than the books.

4. Life of Pi – An incredibly beautiful film.

5. The Hunger Games – A great, great adaptation.

6. The Comfort of Strangers, a novel by Ian McEwan – Love this film. Book was meh.

7. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – American version. So, so good.



1. Twilight series- I actually kind of liked the books. The movies were laughably horrible.

2. Watchmen, a graphic novel by Alan Moore – Such an amazing complex graphic novel, got distilled into something that absolutely paled in comparison.

3. The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons – Tom Hanks is just not MY Robert Langdon.
