Was your favorite moved based on a book ?

On a rainy night in Chennai I had tears rolling down  my cheek.I was watching the movie The MotorCycle Diaries.and there was this intense scene which brought out those tears.I felt so because I had read the book and could appreciate the feelings portrayed in the movie.Into the wild  is one book and one movie which I would carry with me always.The book is so awesome and the movie is very well made.But the movie remains with me just because i had read the book and could link to every small event in the movie.Here is a list of some 15 movies based on a book.If you have not seen one of these , do read the book and watch the movie, remember you will be reminded of the movie all throughout your life.

I would also rank the movies and books according to my liking :
















Among these I had to wait a long time to read the lord of the rings.It was too bulky a book and somehow i found time to read it in the Christmas and new year period last December.

@ Jyoti : I guess then pick these one by one , read the book and watch the movies.Some of these movies are the best among the best.

The only book to movie adaption that I have loved was "The Bridges of Madison County" beautiful book & lovely movie.I always feel that mostly movies don't do justice to the book! I always miss the detailing of the book!

Sadly off ur list I haven't seen any movie and read only Godfatehr!! As I always say so many books to read & so less time!

@ smita : Next time , try out one from this list , I would recommend The motorcycle diaries as it is the autobiography book of Che Guevara.
