Remember that book 2 ended with Deodorant being taken down by Shelob, Sam finding out he was still alive, and Sam going off to rescue him. Also, Helms Deep was not as big a deal in the books. I think the changes made it work better for film. Watchmen could've used some adaptation.

James Scameron: odinsposse: spacebar: List fails without The Lord of the Rings.

Absolutely love the movies, but they're nowhere as awesome as the books.

I'd argue the opposite. Tolkien needed an editor and the movie gave it to him. It helps immensely. Tom Bombadil and a lot of the back story really don't add anything and slow things down. The only real criticism I have of the movies is their weird addition of elves at places they didn't belong, like Helm's Deep.

yeah you need an editor. here's what your edit would look like

I know big well written books bore someone as smart as you, but do refrain from statements regarding who needs an editor.

now go stack some more boxes k?

good.


It's kind of sad that you think liking Tolkien makes you smart.

What's that movie where the two gay guys are on that mountain?

Oh, right Lord of the Rings. Movie was way better.

rikkards: Why doesn't Frodo ride an eagle?
Because the gods don't want him to.


I have said this to every midget who has fondled me.

Apparently Android autocorrects Frodo to Deodorant. Write your own joke.

No mentions of Jurassic Park yet? The first book is great and the first movie, while good, does not hold up to the book.

I thought the second book was a lost cause, until I saw the movie they made based of it. The second Jurassic Park movie probably should have been named 'King Kong staring a T.Rex'.

James Scameron: The Watchmen was an illustrated book for children not an actual "book".

ftfy


Oh look, it's Mr. "I'm way more mature than you guys" again. I'm surprised you didn't mention Camryn Manheim. Oh, wait, is part of the judge's order that you can't mention her online anymore?

The Great Gatsby sucks, in whatever medium.

The Da Vinci Code sucked balls so the movie couldn't have been worse. Same with Gatsby.

And how is this list only 25 long?
