The first was The Hunger Games.
If you've read the book and see the movie, you know that there are a few things left out of the movie and also that a few things were changed. I think the major change in the film (eliminating the character of Madge and having Prim give Katniss the Mockingjay pin) was an excellent choice by the filmmakers and actually added to the story. The addition of a short scene in District 11 showing the reaction to Rue's death and Katniss taking care of her body was a nice touch too and of course references the beginning of the uprising that is shown in the second book in the trilogy.
I admit that I liked both the book and the film almost equally but for completely different reasons. The film version has plenty of action and really gives you a feeling for what it might be like to be in the arena that the children are forced into. Some of the action is intense and I can only imagine what is to come in the second, third, and fourth films (yes, as seems to be the trend lately, the last book is rumored to be split into two films-thank you Harry Potter and Twilight).
The book on the other hand allows the reader to get much more into Katniss's mind, something you don't get in the film. While the screen images allow the viewer to feel like they're in the world of the Hunger Games, reading Katniss's thoughts and inner dialogue really let's you see what type of person she is. Most of the time in the books, even thought she is the one telling the story, she doesn't come across as the most likable person, something that she freely admits about herself. She knows that she is a hard person because of her life experience and as much as Cinna and his makeover team may pretty her up on the outside, she's still the same person on the inside.
In this sequence, Tintin and Snowy race through various scenes from most if not all of the original books that Hergé wrote about Tintin's adventures. Some of the scenes go by rather quick, but if you've read the books, the references are easy to spot.
Along with this wonderful homage to start things off, the team behind this film adaptation did a wonderful job of capturing the spirit of Hergé's books. From the language of Captain Haddock ("billions of blue blistering barnacles" is about the worst "cursing" you'll get from him) to the inevitable point in the story where Tintin gets knocked on the head and wakes up to find himself tied up and in some perilous danger, the film stays very true to the style of the original book while at the same time pushing the cutting edge of motion capture technology in high definition film.
This may be the 1 out of 1000 exception where the film is just as good as the book. Not better, but just as good.
