MEME: Top 48 Sci-Fi Film Adaptations

Stolen from Rob's Blog o' Stuff (who stole it from SF Signal). The list is based on the top grossing movie titles that are based on a book or story, which can be found here.

Here are the rules.

* Copy the list below.
* Mark in bold the movie titles for which you read the book.
* Italicize the movie titles for which you started the book but didn't finish it.
* Tag 5 people to perpetuate the meme. (You may of course play along anyway.)

And now, the list:
1. Jurassic Park
2. War of the Worlds
3. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
4. I, Robot
5. Contact
6. Congo
7. Cocoon
8. The Stepford Wives
9. The Time Machine
10. Starship Troopers
11. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
12. K-PAX
13. 2010
14. The Running Man
15. Sphere
16. The Mothman Prophecies
17. Dreamcatcher
18. Blade Runner(Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?)
19. Dune
20. The Island of Dr. Moreau
21. Invasion of the Body Snatchers
22. The Iron Giant(The Iron Man)
23. Battlefield Earth
24. The Incredible Shrinking Woman
25. Fire in the Sky
26. Altered States
27. Timeline
28. The Postman
29. Freejack(Immortality, Inc.)
30. Solaris
31. Memoirs of an Invisible Man
32. The Thing(Who Goes There?)
33. The Thirteenth Floor
34. Lifeforce(Space Vampires)
35. Deadly Friend
36. The Puppet Masters
37. 1984
38. A Scanner Darkly
39. Creator
40. Monkey Shines

42. The Handmaid's Tale
43. Communion
44. Carnosaur
45. From Beyond
46. Nightflyers
47. Watchers
48. Body Snatchers

I'm fairly certain that only having read five books on this list is pretty bad, but so be it.

So, folks who are tagged: Carraka, SQT, Loopdilou, Imelda, and Aidan Moher!

  1. Well I beat you, cause I'm amazing. I've read both Jurassic Parks, HHGTTG, Timeline, 1984, and The Handmaid's Tale. So there.
