Well, we’re down to eight adaptations. Someone left a comment saying that this bracket might be where we have jumped the shark as a group and I think it may be true. But other than two rather significant surprises (looking at you Prisoner of Azkaban and My Fair Lady) six of the final eight entries make a lot of sense, as you can see here:

The therapy I need because of this bracket!!
Not fair to pit "To Kill a Mockingbird" against "TLOTR." Despite the latter probably being my favorite movie (along with the other two in the series), I voted for "Mockingbird." So good!
