My favorites from that list are Contact and The Iron Giant. I'm not sure how old your little ones are, but you should look into renting The Iron Giant. It's got a great message.

Jill, I didn't read any of those I watched ... at least you did read one. :-D

I don't tend to watch the movies of those books I'd read, and vice versa, except Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings ... I read and watched every single one of those. LOL

Christine, I haven't even heard of The Iron Giant. I will look into it.

Jace, LOL I know what you mean. I read Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and then watched the movie. I loved the book. But about halfway through the movie I turned it off becuase it was so bad. Whoever the director was complete missed the whole message and feel of the book. I could hardly believe they were supposed to be related.

After that I have been very worried to see a movie of a book that I read and loved. That is why I haven't watch The Da Vinci Code movie yet.
