Harry Potter and Narnia are the only ones I've seen. Neither of them were faithful in my opinion.

I don't hate you. I've only read Harry Potter and the first Narnia.

OOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've seen the movies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, Lord Of The Rings, for being really well made.

Haven't seen Twilight.

I think I saw Inkheart, and didn't think much of it.

Narnia was good, but I've only seen The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, and still think that Lord Of The Rings was better quality.

And, well, the Harry Potter's, were good, and they were sort of well made, but, even though it scares me to DEATH I like Lord Of The Rings better.

Now, I don't know if any of these are good compared to their books, but that's how I feel about the movies!!!

Oh, and my brother usually hates it when they make books into movies*, but he said that even though the book and the movie were supposed to be the same, he likes The Lord Of The Rings movie/ies, if he thinks of it as a different plot. Or something like that. Which I think makes total sense, though I don't know if it actually does. :D :D :D :D


* for instance, even though they're good, he can't help but hate the Harry Potter movies, because they are so different from the book. If they weren't supposed to be the some thing, he might actually like them. But for some reason, The Lord Of The Rings was different.

I also love the Lord of the RingsSmile

The really, really old BBC one? With the puppet? That one was awesome and followed the book really well, though the acting was a tad bit cheesy.

HP 1 and 2 were pretty good.

Twilight movie was way better and less cheesy than the books.

Inkheart deleted all the long tedious bits.

Narnia 1 was good... but they Disneyfied the second one. :(

I know... in the book, Susan doesn't fall in love with Caspian (SO cheesy and Disney-typical) and Caspian and Peter don't fight all the time. Actually, I didn't really enjoy the second Narnia movie that much.

Ok, well, since I haven't seen it yet, do you think it's worth it?  'Cause believe me, I sick and tired of movies that aren't worth watching.  :)

Wait... you say the Twilight movie is less cheesy than the books? Wow... Me and some friends went to see that, and we were laughing at it. For example, when what's-his-face-Edward says to Bella, "You're like my own personal brand of heroin(e)" - haha, get it? - and, well yeah, I thought that the movie was cheesy. But I haven't read the book.

I can't say, because FOR SOME STRANGE REASON, INKHEART IS PLAYING VIRTUALLY NOWHERE IN CANADA!!!!!!!  Why!?!  Why?!?  WHY??! *more drama*

I haven't watched Twilight because . . . well, it's complicated . . . *sigh* Same for Lord of the Rings . . .*raves on about the injustice of living* *is very whiny and overdramatic* Eragon and Potty weren't too wonderful . . . Narnia was good . . . *continues to rave*

Prince Caspian (the second Narnia movie) is worth watching, just not if you'd like it to follow the book. I don't think I enjoyed it that much mostly because I loved the first one and how well it followed the book. Prince Caspian is good just as a movie, though.
