+1 agreed for the most part.
Maybe a few movies out there come close. Misery was pretty spot on, hitchhikers guide to the galaxy was a respectable effort even though it didn't follow the book story arch very closely. Fear and loathing in Las Vegas is a great trip. V for Vendetta was a heroic win too. Drive is also a legendary one.
Choke was pale. Rum Diary was bad. The Judge Dredd movie with Sly was embarrassing and that was a good comic at one time. So many more.
More on topic: streamed the South Park movie with my gf in the morning yesterday. I remember people leaving the theater when I saw it. It's a good one, not based on a book. I'm not even sure those guys can read.
