Re: Decent movie versions of classic novels

It's probably worth noting that the most faithful movie adaptation is not always the best one.
But it can be, and if filmakers are not going to use the story they probably should be using the title. Some changes are understandable for the sake of time, but some changes go too far and some make no sense at all in making like the elves at Helms Deep in the Two Towers for example.

The Charles Laughton version of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME completely changes the ending, but works as a classic movie in its own right. Which is often the case.
Which does nothing to show that it is better that way than sticking to the original ending.
