Writer's Block: Wait, that's not how it happened

How do you feel when an adapted film's story deviates from the original material?
Depends on how they do it. The first two Harry Potter movies were excellent, but I wasn't happy with the later movies. Also, they did an awesome job of extending Matilda into a movie and keeping within the spirit of the book. But I have yet to see an adaptation of White Fang that doesn't make me want to hunt down the director and beat them to death with a sack full of copies of the book. Hardback copies, of course.
