Even though I generally find myself liking the book far better than the movie, there have been some adaptations that I do really enjoy. One that springs to mind instantly is The Shining by Stephen King. I thought Kubriak did a remarkable rendition of it and gave us some of the most iconic scenes ever. Another is Lord of the Rings (which I daresay I like far better than the book; sacrilege, I know.). And, of course, we cannot forget our own Harry Potter.
What are some of your favourite movie adaptations of books?
