The movie should be an adaptation of a book that you have read. 

I'm not gonna be original. I don't read a lot.

The Godfather (better than the book, the book is good)

The Lord of the Rings (worse than the book, the book is good)

The Shawshank Redemption (better than the book, the book is garbage)

---------------

Read the book not seen the film:

Sous le soleil de satan (read the book, not seen the film) Masterpiece

Da Vinci Code (read the book, not seen the film) Average

Of Mice and Men (read the book, not seen the film) Trash

@Jessica would you like to add The Fellowship as your pick since cinephile opted out of it or I can merge all 3 in a single pick if you like?

When I see such polls, for me, it's always complicated to choose something. There are a few films adapted from the book I loved, and it's hard to choose one. For me, the best is Pride and Prejudice, I think. I was reading that book for my literature course, and then I watched a film. And for me, everything was great. And the actors were almost the same as I imagined. I even wrote a review on it, and I noticed so many details in the process; it's amazing writing. But it wasn't very easy for me to write, but on https://paperap.com/, I read a few review examples, and the result, the finished paper, was amazing. But to be honest, I'm always stressed when there is a new film adapted from a book I read because you never know whether it will be good or not.

Out of the books I have read my picks are:

Jurassic Park (I preffer the film)

The Man Who Would Be King (The film and the book are both equally good)

El sur (the film left me intrigued with an open ending, the book disappointed me with a close to the story that was not at all what I imagined)

Honorable mentions:

The Last of the Mohicans

Casino Royale
