What’s the worst movie adaptation you have ever had the misfortune of watching?

For me, it would probably be the live action adaptations of the popular Japanese manga series, Death Note. Despite adoring the actor who played Light (and who was also the lead guy in Battle Royale), I found the acting to be cringe worthy and laughable. It was just so…over the top. They’d tried too hard to emulate the manga and it just didn’t work. There are some scenes that cannot be recreated on a live action screen and consequently, Death Note should have been left as a manga (and anime) series.

Name and shame the worst adaptations you’ve seen. Go! 😉 

Also, what book do you think should be adapted for movie or TV?
