We all know some great movies are made from the books (or stories), but do we know are they so great in terms of the sources from which they were adapted? So, vote here for the movie that you think translated the best the intentions of the author of the original work. I chose book adaptations that have IMDB rating higher than 8, but you are free to suggest new movies that you think were as great as the books themselves. Discuss the list and add your suggestions here! P.S. The poll is sorted in alphabetical order, so not to make any movie "better" than the other.

World Masterpiece Theater
This is probably one of the few privileges (I believe) people born from the mid-70's to the early 90's got: the Golden Age of TV animation, which we owe for a significant part to Japan, and more specifically the ambitious World Masterpiece Theater anthology, a proof, if ever needed, that Japanese animation wasn't just about sport-themed cartoons or interstellar robotic battles. This ambitious and epic three-decade project from Nippon Animation consisted on adapting every year popular and classic literature children's books from all over the world, which resulted in unforgettable quality anime such as "Heidi", "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" or the tear-jerker "Princess Sarah". Many of these stories have been made into movies but movies could never do justice to their richness and density. Now, which of these animated series would you be the most interested to discover or to watch again? or If you think you're too old for cartoons (is anyone?) then which one would you rather show to your kids or younger relatives? Discuss the list here For more information about the World Masterpiece Theater click here, and if I may give a personal opinion, these series were really good, you'd be right to think that watching a cartoon can't replace the experience of reading a book, but have we ever said that about Walt Disney animated features?
The Real Top 35 Hollywood Blockbusters of All Time - Inflation Adjusted
Filmsite.org, who was polite enough to mention that the IMDb, Boxoffice.com, Boxofficemojo.com, and The-numbers.com in their intro to ALL-TIME TOP 100 FILMS (Domestic Gross, Inflation-Adjusted), said, as of January 15, 2019, these were the top 35 films for the USA domestic box office. These are the real Hollywood box office blockbusters, not the lists that only use today’s actuals and forget to adjust the box office for ticket inflation for the older films, aka, count the number of tickets sold. However there is one big flaw in this list and that is many of the films have been released more than once. In fact, one originally flopped, and later found its true audience in a re-release in the 1950s and 1960s. With that being said, it still does not take away from the accomplishments of those that had only one release and still made the list. Which one of these films is your favorite? Discuss the films here. They are listed in order from highest to lowest. If you want to see the rest of the 100 list, use the link in this description.
