Adaptation movies are adapted (duh) from books and can be based on romantic comedies, adventures, comedies, or dramatically historic events. They should be well written and historically correct (for the most part) starring the best actors Hollywood has to offer. If you love history try out The Alamo or JFK. How about movies adapted from some really good books like The Damned United or the Lord of the Rings Trilogy? Or maybe try out the Jurassic Park series of films. Adaptation is all about story ideas that become movies meant to entertain us all.
