I hear you loud and clear. I was a MySpace friend with a screenplay writer who was present at the initial screening of Prince Caspian. The makers asked the representatives of C.S. Lewis' estate what they thought. Nice movie, but you completely missed the point of the story.
Yes, that is infuriating. I find it's best to watch the movie first, read the book after. Somehow, it rarely disappoints in that direction. I've been meaning to read The Bourne Identity just because I've heard they completely turned the story upside-down in the movie. I found the movies OK, but action thrillers usually strain my suspension of disbelief to the breaking point. I try not to consciously look for the unrealities, but as soon as I start thinking, they lose me. I loved Red on the other hand, because it was deliberately laughing at the absurdities. Ditto for The Last Action Hero.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
