It was 50 Shades for me too but because Christian was miscast. #notmychristian

The mortal instruments; I'm pretty sure it does not even have a sequel. There was so much magic, action, details and backstory in the book which were omitted in the movie. Don't get me wrong, I used to love it, as I watched the movie before reading the book. After reading the book, however, made me realize how poorly the movie was made.

Game of thrones. The first four seasons were okay but after running out of the source material things went south. I wish they could just have waited for George Martin to finish writing rather than rushing the whole thing

There are lots of them. Eragon was ruined because they cut some scenes. The last two seasons of Game of Thrones because the writers didn't follow the books.
