RE: Book V. Movie
Very few of the books I have read have been made into films.

I read the first and part of the second book of LOTR, and didn't like it. But I did like the movies. I can only judge by the first book, but I think it applies to all three - the movies were very well done, but deviated the wrong way sometimes, while keeping other details that really should have been left out. Like comments that felt awfully corny, unnecessary scenes, scenes that were too long, and overuse of deus ex machina. When you make a film, you have an opportunity to make something wonderful and change key details to tell an even better story. Jackson missed a lot of opportunities (and made it worse in some ways, ie. the Dead Men).

Sherlock Holmes was a nice movie, but so loosely based on the stories that it doesn't qualify...

Harry Potter was well done I think, but it was directed at kids, so I'm not a good judge of it. Someone needs to make a film series loosely based on the books as with Sherlock. Direct it at adults, with a rewritten storyline and more violence and better magic, and then I would love it.

I can't think of anything else apart from TV shows - the Sharpe series (which was meh for me), and Game of Thrones (which has been pretty good, and is a case where I like the show AND the books).

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
