That because fans of the book are looking for an exact movie adaptation. That is in direct opposition the the studios desire to capture broad based fan appeal both domestically and abroad.

RE: The movie thread
Marvel's Agents of Shield S1-4/ NetFlix
--Finished S4 a few days ago. I like the show. Interesting to see how it paralleled some stuff with the MCU movie side of things in relation to Winter Soldier, Avengers, and some other miscellaneous points in between. I think I'd say I liked it overall.

Voltron S3 / Netflix
--Another solid entry in the animated series. I really liked the back story episode of the paladins before the current paladins. Makes for a more real feeling of why Zarkon has his hard on for the Lions and some of the other relationships.

Taken 1-3/ BR
-1: I still think is the best one of the series in terms of it feeling original.
-2: I like the aspect of the father of the fallen guys from 1 decides to get revenge for his sons... but then when being confronted with what his sons were doing in the Human trafficking he seemed completely unaffected as it had no matter in the grande scheme of things.
-3: Not bad as a action movie and I liked the main plot and subplots running through it with his family, the cops looking for him, the jilted husband seeing his wife buddy up with her ex, the new husband's plan for revenge.

BladeRunner / BR
--One of my favorite scifi movies. The themes and philosophy it puts out about robots, cyborgs, androids, and humans is interesting. I'm still not convinced Deckard was a replicant but....

Castlevania S1 / NetFlix
--I think they did a good job with it. Would like to see how they proceed in S2.

Basic Instinct / BR
--I just love the did she/didn't she do it angle to the whole thing... then the current live in girlfriend, then the jilted gay lover fling from college... they played lots of the angles to the story with convincing detail.
