DeBlog: What’s The Worst Movie You’ve Seen Based On A Book?

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Because the final Harry Potter movie opens at midnight Friday morning (I can’t believe how many local theaters have sold out!) we got to thinking about movies based on books.

Most of the Potter fans I talked with loved the books more than the movies. Frankly, I almost always love the book more than the movie. I think it’s because I get to imagine the book unfolding in my mind. The only hard thing for me is trying to pronounce the names correctly in my head.

At any rate, the people at Goodreads put together a list where the book was better than the movie. I want to know what you think! What’s the book you loved, where the movie really disappointed you? What movie was better than the book?

And why do you think the movie is sometimes so disappointing? Share your thoughts in the comments!
