The Princess Bride, although only slightly.  The book is really great too, but the performances in the movie give it that slight edge. 

Also, replacing the author's notes with the grandpa scenes worked better.

Blade Runner was another one. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was rather ho-hum for my tastes.

First rule is, 'The laws of Germany'
Second rule is, 'Be nice to mommy'
Third rule is, 'Don't talk to commies'
Fourth rule is, 'Eat kosher salamis'

For one I liked Frank Darabont's The Mist more than the Shortstory by Stephen King it was based on. Especially the ending was better and King even approved of it.

And how about Comics? Do they count? I would throw Watchmen in there. The movie was very close to the sourcematerial, but changed the one thing I hated about the comic...the Alien Invasion. Also the normal version didn't have the Black Freighter-sidestory which I always skipped while reading the comic. On the other hand the sidestory was included in the Ultimate Cut, where I really loved it due to the visual style.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
