Novels and Movies That Are Both Good, Just Different

Sometimes the novel upon which a movie is based is good, and sometimes the movie is good too, but they're both good in their own way. The classic example is Blade Runner (1982). It's quite different from Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968), but they're both great in their own ways.
