Top Family Films or Their Book Equivalent Part 3

Like if this guide is helpful

Here is the last part of working which is the best with the top family films which have a book equivalent. The previous articles are here:

52: Maltida   Film 4.5/5 (35 reviews)

                     Book 4.5/5 (34 reviews)

                    Dead heat-slight bias towards the book?

54: Belles of St Trinian's/The Appalling Business of St Trinian's 

                    Film: 4/5 (7 reviews)

                   Book:2/5 (1 review)

                   Watch the film-but personally I think it's sacrilege to give Searle's cartoons two out of  five.. Something wrong there, somewhere... The modern version got 3.5/5.

62: Jumanji  Film 4.5/5 (23 reviews)

                  Book 2.5/5 (2 reviews)

                 Watch the film, by a long chalk.

68: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Film 4/5 (42 reviews)

                                                                     Book 5/5 (656 reviews)

                   Read the book, definitely.

69: The Goonies Film 5/5 (91 reviews)

                          Book 4/5 (1 review)  

                          Watch the film-but maybe people just haven't heard of the book...

70: Great Expectations Film 4/5 (23 reviews)

                                   Book 4.5/5 (21 reviews)              

                                   Dead heat-slight bias towards the book, but maybe more people have read the   book...


72: The Little Mermaid  Film 4.5/5 (44 reviews)

                                     Book (illustrated classics version) 5/5 (3 reviews)

                                     Read the book-but be warned, it's much darker...

75: Swiss Family Robinson Film 4.5/5 (18 reviews)

                                          Book 4.5/5 (5 reviews)

                                          Dead heat.

80: Whistle Down the Wind-Film 5/5 (22 reviews)

                                            Book 3.5/5 (3 reviews)

                                            Watch the film

82: Lassie Come Home    Film 5/5 (8 reviews)

                                       Book 5/5 (1 review)

                                       Are you sure these films are the top 100? No one seems to have watched this one. Dead heat.

86: The Iron Giant  Film 4.5/5 (43 reviews)

                              Book 5/5 (1 review)

                              I think this counts as a dead heat-1 reviewer can hardly score a book 4.5...

87: Robin Hood/The Adventure of Robin Hood      Film (Disney) 5/5 (44 reviews)

                                                                              Book (by Marcia Williams-bestselling version of Robin Hood) 5/5 (5 reviews)

                                                                              Dead heat-see below

92: The Adventures of Robin Hood-Erroll Flynn Film 4/5 (37 reviews)

                                                                          For the book, see above-don't watch the new film  though 3/5-45 reviews.

93: Pinocchio Film 4.5/5 (67 reviews)

                     Book 5/5 (1 review)

                    Dead heat again? Certainly the book's scarier than the film. The 1996 film got no reviews at all.

96: Beauty and the Beast: Film 4.5/5 (9 reviews)

                                        Book (bestselling version by Max Eilenberg and Angela Barrett 5/5 (4 reviews)

                                         Read the book.

100: Free Willy Film 3.5/5 (9 reviews)

                        Book 5/5 (1 review)

                        Read the book-though this may be due to the book not requiring a whale to perform...
