1. My Week with Marilyn

Based on My Week with Marilyn by Colin Clark. The book is great, but a good imagination can't possibly make up for the vintage clothes and the insanely accurate period-piece details.

2. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Based on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. What's some good vampire slaying without a little blood and gore?

4. Silver Linings Playbook

Based on The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. This adaptation was nominated for EIGHT Oscars including "Best Adapted Screenplay," so it's got to be pretty damn good.

6. Mean Girls

Based on Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman. This great non-fiction book about surviving high school weirdly makes an amazing comedy. Go figure.

7. Jack Reacher

Based on the novels by Lee Child. There are EIGHTEEN of these books, so this film is a perfect starting point if you are thinking about taking a plunge into the series.

9. Argo

Based on Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled Off the Most Audacious Rescue in History by Antonio Mendez and Matt Baglio. This film is so riveting that it's unbelievable it's based on a true story.

10. Pitch Perfect

Based on Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory by Mickey Rapkin. How can you tell a story about a capella without music?! Come on!
