5 Movies That Were Even Better Than The Books

Published

To many, film adaptations are never as good as the original book. Movies can never achieve the level of thoroughness as the world created by the author. However, there are some superb films that stun even bookworms. So, which films have converted avid fans of the book to fans of the movie, and why?

Gone Girl Has Better Twists And Turns

Movie lovers were in for a real treat with the 2014 psychological thriller Gone Girl, adapted from Gillian Flynn’s novel. While the original novel was a thriller of itself, David Fincher’s powerful screen adaptation has unique elements of drama. The film also has more twists and turns than Flynn’s work, keeping the audience guessing.

Cover Your Eyes While Watching It

Clowns have always been considered scary, but the concept was taken to a whole new level in 2017 with the film adaptation of Stephen King’s iconic novel, It. Director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation adds more tension and atmosphere many fans weren’t expecting. And with Bill Skarsgård’s terrifying interpretation of Pennywise, it’s best to cover your eyes while watching this adaptation.

There’s A Story Behind Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

The 2016 film adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novel is one of the best adaptations ever made—because there wasn’t even a storyline in Rowling’s original book. Instead, the book is a guide for magical creatures and intended to continue the Harry Potter franchise. The film adaptation explores the world of magicians before Harry Potter was born, introducing new characters, new places, and of course new magical creatures.

“To Kill A Mockingbird” Is A Spot-On Performance

One of the best books ever written, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird teaches readers about racism and compassion. The 1962 film adaptation, however, is a spot-on version that explores those same lessons. Gregory Peck’s performance as the heroic Atticus Finch is perhaps the best aspect of the film, delivering dramatic monologues that have stunned viewers for over 50 years.

A Different Perspective In One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

The 1975 film is very different from Ken Kesey’s original novel, but film viewers love that. The film shifted perspective from Chief, who narrates Kesey’s novel, and focuses on Jack Nicholson’s McMurphy. This changes the dynamic in the film, but in a positive way. It’s no wonder the film won five Academy Awards.
