vanguard333 Posted February 10 Share Posted February 10 In the past couple decades, we have been getting a lot of adaptations of different media, and a fairly significant number of them have been met with significant criticism from fans for being inferior to their source material; perhaps they were rushed out by a team that was uncaring or didn't understand what people liked about the original, perhaps the original was simply really hard to adapt to other mediums due to something about it, perhaps it was going to be a strong adaptation but it suffered severe meddling or a troubled developed, or any other reason. This is not a thread about those types of adaptations. Instead, I wanted to discuss the cases where it's almost the opposite: you saw an adaptation and its source material, and not only did you come away thinking that the adaptation was the better version, but also that the adaptation actively tried to fix that which you didn't like about the original. Basically, the kind of adaptation where, in your opinion, the biggest problem it had was the source material itself. Note: this thread is not an excuse to just rant about a story you did not enjoy; for every example you give about a problem with a specific source material, please also provide what you thought the adaptation(s) did to try to fix it.
