Stardust. I mean, I still liked the movie (I do what I can to separate the two so I don't bitch, because I pride myself in having a concept of difference in media), but the change in ending was a bit too sappy. I like my bittersweet, far-more emotionally believable book-ending. I wish that they at least kept the original ending that was shot.

To be honest, even with all the side stories cut out, I like the fifth Harry Potter movie the most. They covered the core of the story pretty well. Other than the obvious mirror issue (which they can still put into the next movie), I only feel that the Cho thing was really put to rest, but that's me being a nit pick and a Harry/Ginny fangirl. The third was the worst. Rather than spending all that time on special effects to hit us over the head with "Ooh, aren't dementors scary? They frost over flowers. Lol, the Whomping Willow beats things!", they could have covered who the Marauders were. I worked in a movie theater when PoA was out, and most people who didn't read the books walked out confused.

Right now, I'm fearing for Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy. Mel Gibson has the rights for the film.

Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux made a masterpiece, the book was dark, interesting and twisted and they ruined it by replacing all the intelligence with music. I was disgusted.

Lol, I don't think I've read a book and watched the movie before.
I read "Seeker" and that had a movie, but I didn't think it would be worth watching since I thought the book was only okay.

cruel intentions was really weak compared to dangerous liasons

the count of monte cristo. the book is so amasingly complex and riddled with subplots, that there's no way you could fit it into a movie.
