One issue is that a typical novel is simply [[DoorStopper much too long]] to fit all of it in a two (or even three) hour movie, so significant parts of it must be cut out. Sometimes entire characters may be changed, have their screen time lengthened/shortened (if not [[AdaptedOut cut altogether]]), or important book-related plot points or dialogue may be whizzed by, creating a moment of FridgeLogic. All of this tends to a trendy belief that no matter how good or bad the movie is, "The book was better."

In print, special effects are easy; in film, they are expensive. In print, describing a character's thoughts is normal; in film, a voiceover is seldom acceptable. In print, a story can take days to read; in film, audiences won't sit still for more than a few hours. Getting round these problems means changing the story, for better or for worse.

** In turn, pick any of those movies. Chances are, Stephen King himself didn't like it. He's outright stated that he hates some of the movies based off his books, such as the [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIITheFinalSacrifice two]] [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIIIUrbanHarvest sequels]] of ''Film/ChildrenOfTheCorn1984'' and ''Film/TheShining'' (Creator/StanleyKubrick removed several plot elements that King felt very personal about, [[WriteWhatYouKnow because they were partly based on his own life]]). He did, however, like the movie's ending of ''TheMist'' even more than his original.
