We all love to walk into a movie theater and see what the screenwriters and directors have done to our beloved book. There's that knowing satisfaction that you can speak with authority to your friends about the true meaning because you, in fact, read the book. You take pride in having a secret insight to the little details not portrayed in the film adaptation or express your disdain at leaving out critical information. Oh, but it's fun, even when it's disappointing. You still have that intimate connection with the written version; the original.
Buzzfeed has a list and fun check off list of movie adaptations of great books. It will even let you know if you need to see more films. Apparently, I need to sit down with a large bowl of popcorn.
