The film cut out subplots from the book that wouldn’t have been out of place in a soap opera (or, in the case of the subplot about a certain character’s oversized vagina, a porno).

The original comic while it was okay it really didn’t have any charcter depth and the writing always felt pointlessly edgy to me. Log in to Reply Princess Bride was much better as a movie. The pacing was better and the cast brought the story to life. Log in to Reply Blade Runner. DADOES seemed like a grab-bag of proto-cyberpunk which just didn’t feel cohesive. Blade Runner’s focus on Deckard’s case and its relationship to the human condition worked so much better. Log in to Reply Red Dragon (the first book with Hannibal Lecter). Aside from the stellar cast (Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Ralph Finnes), the pacing and visuals of the movie were fantastic.

Log in to Reply I have two: The Shawshank Redemption: originally a novella, although excellent, and I’ve read it 20+ times, the film is better. Of Mice And Men; incredible work by Steinbeck, the film with Gary Sinese and John Malkovich is incomparable. Log in to Reply I like the end of Watchmen better in the movie than the book.
