    Which movie would have made a better TV series?

    More often than people realize there is a number of movie releases that showcase a plot tailor-made for television.  In your opinion, what is one cinema title that actually could've done better on smaller screens?

    Atlas Shrugged.

    It's a great book, the two-part movies released recently didn't do it justice.
    I think somebody should take the story into TV series. Preferable the producers of Game of Thrones big_smile

      Nice call.  I haven't read it yet but it is near the top of my list.

    I think, Harry Potter. Well I know there are tons of thousands of die hard fans of Harry Potter Movies. And guess what, I started with HP movies as well - I started reading the books only after watching the third movie. But seriously, after the third movie, the books had so much - converting into a movie was just a semi-futile effort. I call it semi futile, because, no doubt the movies are an amazing cinematic effort. But the amount of details the story demanded, would be fit only for a TV series with a lot of time, may be some in depth story telling and even from the point of view of audiences - I have and still find something new - a new emotion, a new angle, a new explanation that I somehow till the moment miss - when I re-read the books.

      It does make sense.  By switching to television you could've covered every detail left out in the movies.

    Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes". Fantastic story, but once Disney/Buena Vista got a hold of it the script felt rather dumbed down for what seemed the time factor. NO offense to the memory of Ray Bradbury, though. I would also add that a television company doing it could have done well to keep the same actors. A very talented group there.
