Tis the season of big book-to-movie adaptations, so in our latest reader poll, we asked about your favorite adaptations. 715 Riot readers answered the call and listed 421 movies. For purposes of clarity, all mentions of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings were grouped together, as many readers did not specify whether they were referring to the whole series or a specific film within it. Check out the top 10 below, and see the full response count here.
