IMHO, there are some movies that were at least as good as the book; most of the Harry Potter films, The Lord of the Rings films, Gone with the Wind, The Godfather (1 & 2, don’t even mention 3 to me!) There is at least one film that was much better than the book – The Devil Wears Prada. I’m sure there are some more. But even so, these are infinitesimal is the world of films based on books. I’d love to hear some comments on this!
Signature Views Mini-Doc – If the book is always better than the movie, why bother adapting a book? Consider some of these reasons.
