Suck it up cupcake.
Perhaps this one was covered in the last thread - Star Wars. The book was written after the screenplay and, in my opinion, it is not very good. I read it as a young teen and still remember it not-so-fondly.
Bridge to Terabithia. An absolute clinic on how to turn a childhood fantasy type book into a film. Didn't hurt that the screenplay writer was the book author's son, and inspiration for the lead character. But still, a good book...but an excellent movie.

"I saw Wedding Crashers accidentally. I bought a ticket for Grizzly Man and went into the wrong theater. After an hour, I figured I was in the wrong theater, but I kept waiting. Thatís the thing about bear attacks. They come when you least expect it."-Dwight K. Schrute
I wasn't really impressed with Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep.
Bladerunner, however, was a classic.
When I was younger, I loved The Heart of Darkness. But after re-reading it a couple of years ago, I found it too mechanical (perhaps I was having a bad day).
Apocalypse Now, on the other hand, is a tough movie to beat.
"Ahh, Jesus, I like him very much, but He no help with curveball." - Serrano. "Are you trying to say Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?" - Harris in Major League (1989)
When the movie ended, I was sitting there with tears coming down my face and hoping nobody noticed. Ever since then, it's been one of those "you have to see this" kinds of movie to me.
