What's the best book to film sci-fi (or SF) transition and..

I was trying to think of books in the genre that faithfully made it into film and pleased the readers. I can think of some good films, but not many where the story line wasn't jazzed up somewhat or changed to the point where we wouldn't have recognised it without the title. Epic disasters such as Dune for instance. Some of my favourite stories are dated now. Eon for instance, background was the cold war... Second War Of the Worlds, or maybe 2001 are all I can think of. SF, Fellowship Of the Ring is a stand out, but I liked Tom Bombadil and the following two make me want to punch someone out. So what books would you like to see in film if they can stay true to the story an keep the readers happy?

they did an animated version of J. R. R. Tolkien's the Hobbit, it was pretty good and followed well with the book. Not sure how a real version would come out, guess it would depend on the director and his or hers interpretation of the book.
