    Although not a movie, I thought the musical remake of Wicked was about a billion times better than the book. The I am legend movie is also way better (or just more modern, perhaps) than the book. But my all time favorite adaption is the movie Adaptation, which had so little to do with the book it was meant to be based on but was still brilliant (so be nice to Nicholas Cage!)

    Although not a movie, the musical version of Wicked was a million times better than the book. The I Am Legend movie was also better than the book it was based on, although maybe that’s because the book dated pretty badly. My all time bestest adaptation of a book into a film would have to be the movie Adaptation (so don’t be so mean to Nic Cage!)
