** The removal of the Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox VanityPlate and fanfare from [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Disney]]-distributed digital copies of the sequels and prequels upset fans who thought this made the opening feel less epic, and that the music that replaced Fox's fanfare (an excerpt of ''Empire Strikes Back'' end credits music, clumsily edited to match the runtime of Lucasfilm's "Logo Shining II" Vanity Plate) doesn't transition as smoothly into the ''Star Wars'' theme. It also creates inconsistency with Fox retaining their logo and fanfare on ''A New Hope'' digital copies. Oddly, when Disney acquired distribution rights to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse movies originally released through Creator/{{Paramount}}, three years before they started distributing the ''Star Wars'' sequels and prequels, they didn't remove Paramount's logo.[[note]]While most of the Marvel/Paramount movies didn't have any audio accompanying the Paramount logo, if Disney removed it from ''Film/IronMan2'', they probably would have also cut out part of the opening recap, of Tony revealing himself as Iron Man.[[/note]]

** People complained about ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} not wearing purple tights and a mask in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', even though his movie outfit was a fairly accurate adaptation of his look from ''TheUltimates''.

** ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' provoked an incredibly extreme InternetBackdraft over one thing - Hermione's dress for the Yule Ball. It was blue in the book and pink in the film. Hundreds of fans complained about the change, with the film's IMDB page in an edit war over listing "Hermione is a person who [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses hates pink and would never wear a pink dress]]" as a PlotHole and there are still plenty of Facebook pages complaining about it.

** Not even the first films were immune from this. A portion of the base reacted negatively to a change in the Devil's Snare scene. In the book, Hermione panics and Ron has to tell her to get a grip. In the film, it's Hermione who remains calm. The complaints about Ron becoming an AdaptationalWimp were taken a little out of context[[note]]The film drops the logic puzzle from the book, which served as Hermione's SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome. This way the Devil's Snare scene fills that function, and likewise Hermione and Ron don't help Harry in the flying keys scene - giving him one.[[/note]] - with many forgetting that the film still keeps the chess scene intact. Ron still saves the day, Hermione panics and has to be stopped by Harry - just like in the book.

* The ''Film/ResidentEvil'' movie series. Never mind that it's [[AlternateContinuity not meant to take place in the same world as the games]], or that it might actually be GOOD in its own right, as soon as they added a character that didn't exist in the games and a backstory for Nemesis, people wanted to kill ANYONE involved in this movie for taking a new story and plastering the ''Resident Evil'' name on it. Although to be fair, they may be more pissed about the [[GodModeSue God Mode]] BlackHoleSue Alice.

* Disney revised the Walt Disney Pictures VanityPlate in 2011 so that it no longer includes Walt's first name, or the word "Pictures". Fans see this as an insult to WaltDisney. The company tried to justify the change by saying this version would look easier to read on mobile digital copies. However, the preceding version doesn't look ''that'' hard to read when shrunken to [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Disney_iPhone_logo_4447.png iPhone dimensions]].

* The 2010 ''Film/{{Robin Hood|2010}}'' movie has taken a lot of heat for being a history-oriented original origin story instead of a retelling of the Robin Hood story "[[InkStainAdaptation everybody knows]]". The story everyone knows includes the usual setup of Prince John acting as regent in [[UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionHeart King Richard's]] absence, Robin being a outlawed knight, and Robin StormingTheCastle to save Maid Marian. In the 2010 film, these plot elements are either absent ([[spoiler:Richard dies at the start, and John is king for the rest of the film]]) or given a new twist ([[spoiler:Robin, a commoner, poses as Marian's deceased husband, a knight]]), and the main plot is about setting up the legend to happen in the context of a (fictional) French invasion. The movie ends with [[spoiler:Robin finally being outlawed by John.]] Many people were dissatisfied, to say the least, with the film for not following "the story everybody knows". But "the story everybody knows" (most probably through the combination of [[Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood Errol Flynn]], [[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Kevin Costner]] and [[Disney/RobinHood Disney]]) is itself an AdaptationDistillation of centuries of folklore, literature and previous adaptations. Most of the details in the version everyone knows were only established through the years - including all of the above familiar elements, and Robin ''robbing the rich and giving to the poor'' itself (which is in the film, but not as much as people expected). So the film is bashed somewhat unfairly for changing and adding to the story, when that's how the legend developed in the first place.

* Most of the criticism of the 2007 ''Film/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' movie was based on this reaction. The DVD includes an interview with Creator/NeilGaiman explaining why he made these alterations, and they're pretty decent reasons.

* A number of fans (including author GeorgeRRMartin) complained about founding members ComicBook/AntMan and TheWasp being left out of the ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers]]'' live-action movie in favor of ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} and Comicbook/BlackWidow, who are portrayed as founders in the film despite not joining the team until well after it was already established in the original comic books. Other complaints ranged from Hawkeye not wearing purple to Captain America not having wings on his helmet. Captain America ''did'' have wings on his helmet; the only thing is these wings are painted on, not jutting out.

* The ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' film directed by GuyRitchie has been criticized for making an action film out of the source material. This is despite the fact that there are a number of action sequences in the Sherlock Holmes adventures. Holmes is canonically a martial artist, fencer, etc. and Watson is an army veteran. Point of fact, it is only in later adaptations of the beloved characters that Watson was relegated to nothing more than foil, medic and narrator. Many instances in the original series have Watson physically helping Holmes fight off the villains, and is considered a crack shot better than Holmes.
