The wolves, at least the grey wolves, are fine. A couple of other speci, like the Mexican Red Wolf, I think, are endangered, though.

Also, the Hunger Games movie wa just as bad a th book, and had obvious CGI, even if the locations were cool.

Whoa, BB didn't like Hunger Games?


*shrug* I liked it. For new literature, it was pretty OK. I guess I liked the setting more than the story. After all, that was the selling point for Avatar.

Animorphs (only saw about half the episodes)
The Lorax
War of the Worlds

Gulliver's Travels
The Hunger Games (read all 3)
Harry Potter 1-7 (part 2)
Alice in Wonderland
I, Robot
Peter Pan
The Little Mermaid (Yes, this WAS a book FIRST!)

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Every movie baised off a Dr. Suess book
...and many more.

Books I have NOT read yet have seen the movie, in random order:
The Lord of The Rings
The Wizard of Oz

<Please note that this is only a partial list and I will edit it as I think of more.>
<Please also note that books made from movies are disqualified from these lists, I may see the movie and read the book, however I will not list them unless you ask about it, then I will only tell you that I have read and/or watched it.>
