Books into Movies

When I think of great book to movie series the only one that comes to mind is the harry potter series. Unfortunately, many books are torn to shreds due to bad acting, low budgets and straying from the actual plot. Perhaps the worst of these cases is "The Golden Compass" A few problems include the obviously bad acting, the annoying characters and the plot was never followed. In the book the characters cross dimensions fighting "Shades" that appear when a portal is opened. The entire series is wildly controversial as there is a scene where they kill, the now symbolic, God. The book tells vivid tales of corruption and fighting an unbeatable force But the movie was nothing like the book, the movie had a plot of its own merely using the characters to give the illusion of being like the book.
