Great "Bad" Adaptations

Film adaptations that subvert or otherwise go against the source material. Don't let the title fool ya! By being unfaithful, they're better off than the source material in many ways.
I will not be including video game adaptations, because they are all made by filmmakers who don't seem to understand what game elements will be cinematic!
