... i agree that most of the books made into movies did not give justice to the book..
but there are decent movies from books that has been done....
when I watch a movie based on a book, i always expect that there are going to be many deviations from the book especially if it came from a novel.... but the thing that makes me excited is the skill of the writers/director on how they will compress the novel into a 1.5 to 2 hour movie.
A good thing with movie adaptations of books is that once in a while we are treated to a movie that does give some sort of justice to the novel. Plus, you get to see a concrete picture of that fictional world.
I still remember the first time I watched the LOTR movies. :3
May have been lacking many scenes from the books, but the imagery was breathtaking.
