* Gerry Anderson, the creator of ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'', went on record as saying that ''[[Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice Team America: World Police]]'' was [[SpiritualAdaptation closer to the spirit of the show]] than the [[Film/{{Thunderbirds}} 2004 film adaptation]]. Given that he wasn't particularly fond of ''Team America'' (mainly due to its raunchy humor, which meant that he couldn't watch it with his kids), that's saying something.

* [[Music/PinkFloyd Roger Waters]] isn't a terribly big fan of the film adaptation of ''Music/TheWall'', likely because he didn't get to play the lead role like he had wanted. That didn't stop him from doing a hilarious DVDCommentary track with Gerald Scarfe, though.

* Creator/GeorgeLucas once compared the Creator/{{Disney}}-made ''Film/StarWars'' films (anything made after ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'') to "white slavery", although he has since backed down on the issue and accpets them as proper ''Star Wars'' films, even going so far as to direct a scene for ''Film/{{Solo}}'' while on set.

** On the other hand, he once said of the much reviled ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'', "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that special and smash it." So he's probably still not too happy about that one.

** Bob Layton, co-writer of such stories as "Demon in the Bottle" and "Armor Wars", only liked [[Film/IronMan1 the first movie]]. [[http://www.boblayton.com/interview-with-bob-by-dolmen-magazine/ His reasons for despising the sequels]] include hatred for Justin Hammer's AdaptationalComicRelief in ''Film/IronMan2'' (going from TheChessmaster and a DiabolicalMastermind to a KnowNothingKnowItAll BigBadWannabe who wants to be Tony Stark), felt that what was done with Hammer was an AudienceColoringAdaptation to the character's determent, felt like ''2'' relied too much on armors, and felt like ''Film/IronMan3'' was a G-rated ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' that made Tony come across as an idiot.

* Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto did not like ''Anime/TheGreatMissionToSavePrincessPeach'' because he felt it was trying too hard to be a carbon copy of the Mario games. Surprisingly, he likes ''Film/SuperMarioBros'', as he said it at least took creative liberties and told an original story.

* The descendants of Creator/VictorHugo bashed Disney in an open letter to the ''Libération'' newspaper for their ancestor getting no mention on the advertisement posters for [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame the Disney adaptation]] of ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', and they harsly criticized the film itself as a vulgar commercialization of Hugo's story.

* Creator/LFrankBaum disliked ''Theatre/TheWizardOfOz1902'''s finalized script. The director made a [[ExecutiveMeddling bunch of changes]] to the script (including scrapping Toto and the Wicked Witch of the West completely) and added jokes that Baum didn't like.
