Beth Allen (saintseester) In a recent thread, someone mentioned that most movies don't live up to the book. A few do, though. I absolutely love the movie "Field of Dreams," but when I read the book, I thought it was so bad I was surprised it was published. LOL!

What movies do you think REALLY do a book justice?

Rob (digitalrob) | 2 comments I thought "Green Mile" was excellent, at least as good as the book. I also think the studio is doing a reasonable job with the Harry Potter books. No, they aren't as good as the novels, but considering the differences in the mediums and audiences, the movies are pretty good.

Jigme Datse (JigmeDatse) | 15 comments I personally thought that the Lord of The Rings trilogy was done really well, I would say that it did way better than most movies in terms of making the movie in line with the books. I know that some people would definitely would disagree with me, but I think that it's something that I am pretty "correct" in thinking it did a better job than most...

Beth Allen (saintseester) I thought The Lord of The Rings was done very well, too. My only regret is that kids who are the age I was when I fell in love with the book only want to watch the movie, now.

I have not seen a movie that has done the book justice. However that being said, The Field of Dreams is one of my top ten all time favorite movies, so I will be sure to read the book and let you know if I agree.
