I'd be interested to hear of any authors who LIKED the film version of their work. (The only one I can think of is William Goldman with "The Princess Bride" and that's probably because he wrote the screenplay).
Frank Herbert had mostly positive things to say about Lynch's Dune.
Arthur C. Clarke was pleased with both 2001
I'm pretty sure that Michael Crichton considered Jurassic Park
to be a good thing.
