Except for LOTR and Life of Pi. They left some stuff out of both, but they still did really well with condensing a whole book into a less than 3 hour movie.

It helps when the Director, Producers, Cast and Crew are fans and actually give a **** about the source material rather than piss all over it for monies (I'm looking at you Shamallamadingdong)

Yeah, I'll never say anything bad against LOTR. The movie adaptation was very well done. Watched the whole extended edition last week. Quality work.

Now, say, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ...

You know, I don't think the movie adaptation of Hitchhiker's was that bad. I enjoyed it, I'm not saying it was good, but I did enjoy it. Really I think that those books were not made to be movies, they could only be properly enjoyed in written format.

Not to point out the blindingly obvious but Hitchhikers was an adaption of a radio play, not a book. The book was also an adaption of the radio play, as was the tv series, and technically parts of the radio play were adaptions of both the books and the tv series as well as early drafts for a movie adaption of the radio play and bits of the tv series as well as some content from the books and........ well........ It's still the best five book trilogy in the world. Adams died too soon.
