    How is the Golden Compass, with Daniel Craig, Nicole Kidman, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee and others, not on this list?!?
    It should have been part one of Pullman's trilogy, His Dark Materials. The movie and book got slammed hard by the church because the author is an atheist, part three involves killing God, and the movie happened a little too soon for society to accept metaphors critiquing the church's history of stealing children's innocence. This one should certainly be on a list like this.

    A lot of the time the studios make a terrible first film and even though the sequel may be better they often don't get the viewers to make the money look right at the box office. I certainly know I don't waste money on the sequel when the first is average. As for the critics... well critics are often childish artists expecting more from films than they ever promise. They don't give fair reviews of many of the best action movies and heavily favour the arty ones. Have a quick browse through their top rated and it's very clear their "ratings" need to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Jupiter Ascending? Eddie Redmayne was ridiculous in that movie bust besides that I really liked it. Also, the Narnia films should come back, there's still plenty of.source material. One of my favorite series to read as a child.

    The divergent film series got ended in 2016 and Starz scrapped plans for a TV movie and a tv spin-off. Lionsgate’s film rights to the Divergent series will be lapsed and revert back to Veronica Roth, waiting for a complete reboot to happen.

    Fuck Eragon, That movie changed about 80% of the details from the book or just completely ignored them in favor of things easier to do onscreen that didn't make the movie better at all.
    The fact they tried to squeeze so much story into one movie is why I'm glad it failed before we had to suffer another one.

    Film makers need to stop making movies depicting children as heroes. The public does not like impossible fantasies showing snot-nosed brats as somehow being "super." Cast adults in the roles. John Carter was a stupid movie with a cast unskilled at acting. Never ever cast Matthew McConaughey for anything unless the director, producers, and film making company desire unemployment over making any money at all.

    Eragon needed a 3 hour movie. It legit jumped from chapter to chapter and barely tied things together. It was horribly made and news flash Eragon has brown hair... and the romance they had with him and the elf isn’t going to ever happen like they pushed it in the movie. SHES THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD and legit said it wouldn’t happen in the books. It was a good try but did deserve the one star. I would love if the lord of the rings director did Eragon. It could then actually be a good movie

    I think people forget that not everything tht is written on paper can happen, or makes sense on the white screen. Stupid book critics are killing movies because it didn't include certain scenes or had different scenes. I mean, if the plot has completely changed, then sure. But just because some character did not look like it was described or a certain scene was left out of final production, does not make the movies bad...

    The Divergent series started off faithful to the books, but went completely off track with Insurgent. The film was not a faithful telling of the book’s story, and didn’t do justice to Trish’s character. It inflated Kate Winslett’s part amd completely destroyed a beautifully-written story in the process. After seeing that travesty, I had no desire to watch Allegiant.

    Sahara was fantastic but actually was stopped bc the author was angry over how MM portrayed Pitt. Also John Carter was amazing and there’s a huge cult following still hoping for more.

    Ender's Game (the movie) failed for the exact same reason the author said it would.
    All those movie companies were begging Orson Scott Card to turn his book into a movie.
    And they (The movie companies) all wanted to change the book. Which they ended up doing and the movie was a big pile of shit. Proving the movie people didn't know what the fuck they were doing.
    The same is true with John Carter of Mars, Wizards 1st rule, and the rest of the book to movie flops.

    I was really excited to watch the opening of Sahara, with the Civil War ironclad. Had the movie stayed in the Civil War, it would have been much better, but, well, as you know, it fell apart as the movie progressed. John Carter would have been an awesome movie, had they not bastardized the story. It seems most script writers don't have a clue what they're doing. Nor the "suits" that approve the movie.

    Ender's Game was a great movie that was killed by Orson Scott Card deciding at that very moment to campaign against gay marriage in California. If he hadn't killed it, I think we would have seen at least two more movies.

    With all the technology, movie makers have at their hands, you would think that they could make awesome sic fci movie. Moral of the story is that the storylines is what makes a good movie, supported by good special effects period. Sick and tired of watching good special effects with stupid storylines. Just a waste of special effects.

    Eragon was a rape of the book, in the movie the actors wear JEANS in multiple scenes, the pro that made the book a bestseller were the story line detail of the world and evolution of the story, the movie had fucking nothing of this, I still don't know how Paolini could allow such a brutal rape of the masterpiece that those books are.

      That craptastic film M Night Shamalamadingdong made was not based on the series! The man destroyed the content on what can be called a perfect tv show ,on purpose. The worst thing he did was change the pronunciation of the names of major characters!! Would you be able to stomach Harry Potter if in the movie he was referr'd to as Herry Putter? It would bug the hell out of you! M Knight changed the sound of these names: Aang to (Uh-nng). Sokka(Sock-kah to So-kah). Iroh (Eye-roe to Ear-roe).Agni Kai to (Agni-Kee). He even changed avatar to (of-va-tar)! WTF? We fans were incensed. I'm not even going into how he destroyed major story arcs. It's 8 long yrs later & fans are still angry for that turd he delivered. Thankfully the creators of the show are doing their own live action version for Netflix.

    I have never seen a main character of a movie franchise kill a franchise more and faster than the mentally unstable Shailene Woodley. She is a dumpster fire waiting to happen. Her ego and perceived self-importance is massive and little does she know her career has peaked and she is steadily on the decline because of her humungous character flaws. It was hilarious to hear how she thought being at the Pipeline Protest in North Dakota (which she was arrested at), she actually believed she would single-handedly shut it down because she was such an important person because of her acting.
    She isn't even a "Has-Been" she is a "Never-Was".
