The Hobbit was a book I loved as a child. When Jackson made the film, it just didn't do it justice IMO. Overused CGI, long dragging scenes...we gave up after the first hour and that was that.

I loved the stage version-that was very well done. And the scary bits of the film were good but it had a happy(ish) ending which was totally at odds with the book.

The Remains of the Day, despite the best efforts of Anthony Hopkins.

Goodnight Mr Tom. The book is great. The film is dreadful.
