    As there are much better movies both on this list and not mentioned, I was really disappointed when Disney's The Lone Ranger flopped and any hope of a sequel was canceled

    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".

    Another movie that could be added to this is tron. Disney pulled the plug on the sequel because "It wasn't Disney enough." So spending tons of money to turn Star Wars to crap is VERY Disney, but making a sequel to ( in my opinion )the best movie of 2010 ISN'T at all Disney.

    I didn't think John Carter was such a bad movie; it was just poorly, poorly marketed. People outside the vintage Sci-Fi community had NO idea who "John Carter" even was. The name gave no hints, and the trailers just didn't do the movie justice. With the right build-up and marketing, I think that movie could have much better and it seemed well-adapted to marketing toys (maybe with a cartoon-version). Some of the other movies tend to follow the "misunderstood teenagers/kids with secret special powers who save the world" trope. Yes, many teens feel misunderstood and would like to imagine that they are "special" in some way, but this has been done over and over. Unless there is a freshness and originality about a character or a situation, the movie is going to be ultimately forgettable.

    “I ways really sad that the movies I thought were great didn’t get a second chapter made for them, but it probably didn’t help that sadly they got such low ratings to them; The ones like ERAGON, The Golden Compass, ENDDER, The Seventh Son, and to add Jumper, and also Sahara.”

    “Now I strongly think that the book set franchise about (ENDER’S GAME) could possibly be saved by being made into a show series, and to add the same for (John Carter).”
    An to add I also strongly think that the same can be said for the books set that involve starting with the first book (The Seventh Son) all the way to the rest of the books, and books set of (ERAGON) & also the books set of (The Golden Compass).
    Plus to add the same with graphic-novels, all types of ComicBooks from different types of labeled creators of them; One like DC ComicBooks & MARVEL ComicBooks & others like those, and to add family friendly story books as well.
    Such as the books set of (PERCY JACKSON) adventures, (Sahara) books sets, JUMPER books set, (I Am Number Four) books set, (DIVERGENT) books set, and more like those as well too.

    The problem that producers go into when converting books to movies is that when they are making the script they try to had to much from later books into the first part. They are focused on packing way to much of the entire series into one movie and not even thinking about how they are needed to be used in the later films/books.

    At least "Ender 's Game" and "John Carter" had a proper start, middle, and ENDING, so that the movies made sense as standalone films too, and not a vast cliffhanger making you feel like you 've just watched a TV series episode. Marvel and DC... please take note of that!
    (oh... and by the way... fuck critics... they were both really good, involving, clever and enjoyable films!)
