Movies That Are Better Than the Books

I hear people say all the time, "Oh, the book is so much better!" While that's often true, it is not universally true. I've read several books that were mediocre or poor, while the movies derived from them are quite good.

  • Jaws
  • First Blood
  • The Godfather
  • Red River
  • Scarface
  • The Running Man
  • The Warriors
  • Psycho
  • The Vanishing
  • Zotz!
  • Psycho II
