    How to electrocute Blacks, 1983.
    Much better than the book, which contains 2 chapters on the invention of the electric chair and its introduction into american prisons.

    A lot of Stephen King books suck and the adaptations are way better. Most Korean TV shows improved their horrific source material (often webtoons, not books, but still)

    In A Lonely Place. Probably a bunch of other 50s noir as every other movie was based off a book back then, but that’s the only one I’ve read.

      I disagree. Each movie needed 1 hour more. Which parts of the books? The constant singing of course. Oh and the 100 pages describing how Hobbits grow stuff in the first book is dearly missed in the movies. And how saruman destroys everything after sauron is defeated.

    The Shining is the most obvious one. Not a bad book if you like King, but more pulp than art. Somehow Kubrick was able to elevate that.

        Jack Nicholson? It's because he wanted to frick as many kids as he could back then and acting in a movie stopped him from doing that.

        I have no idea why. When I was a kid I read every Steven King book he’d written to that point and why in hell he didn’t like the Kubrick Shining I will never know. I think his main gripe was that they totally changed the ending but every change Kubrick made was for the better. The Shining is really not one of his best books anyway.

        Unironically I like the 90s Mario Bros movie, it and hackers have this great corny yet oddly sincere cyberpunk aesthetic and ambiance that's just great. Also it seemed like everyone was having a good time hamming it up.

    Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. The book was good but the movie did a better job of recreating the atmosphere of a drug induced stupor than letters on paper ever could.

    Forrest Gump

    The book is this weird Simpsons-esque fever dream written in broken southern-accented english with shit like Gump, an old lady, and a monkey getting sent off to space, their rocket crash landing on an island full of cannibals, and the reason they don't get eaten is because Forrest spent every night for four years playing chess against the chief because the chief wanted to beat him in chess before he ate him and his friends. Later, when the chief finally wins, another tribe shows up and kidnaps Gump and his friends, but they escape because Forrest convinces them that him and his friends are a band that "plays the knives and spears" causing the tribe to provide them with weapons, which they use to defeat them. Also, the old lady decides to stay because she fell in love with one of the locals.

    There's more weird shit in there but that's the peak of it. The writer even did a sequel where Jenny comes back as a ghost and the actual movie is made in-universe with Forrest disliking it.

    As you can tell it's very obvious the film is more well known that book. Decent short read imo.

    Easy one for me; The 9th Gate. It's based on the book "The Club Dumas" and while they both share the premise of globe trotting investigating The Nine Gates to the Kingdom of Shadows, the book ultimately shows there is nothing supernatural or any satanic cults or conspiracies. Just old rich people having a giant get together over their love of Alexander Dumas.

    In contrast the movie only gets more crazy over the top as it goes along. And quote frankly I much preferred it that way. Also there's just something comfy about the movie for me, one of my favorite Johnny Depp roles, before all of his performances were a variation of Jack Sparrow.

      Hmm, I actually consider "All You Need is Kill" and Edge of Tomorrow to be equal in quality. The major change obviously is the ending. I felt like the book ending thematically was better, although obviously I doubt the Hollywood version would have ever had the balls to conclude with Rita and Cruises character battling each other to the death (in the book, both of them are trapped in each other's loops, if both lived, ultimately everything would have been reset, so only one could live.)
