I enjoy watching them.. though some they just kill if they are not done right but it's fun to see what they come up with.
Meh... there are very few book-to-movie adaptations that are decent. Every time I watch one I tell myself that this one will be different, but I'm almost always disappointed and feel like I wasted my time.
I completely understand! Sometimes I am interested to see how different characters are cast as opposed to the way I imagine them.
