Which of These Movies Actually Turned out Better Than the Books?

The general consensus is that movies generally don't live up to the books from which they get adapted. Every now and then we get a surprise (Greta Gerwig's "Little Women"), sometimes we get our suspicions validated ("The Girl on the Train") and sometimes each version is neither here nor there ("A Simple Favor"). These five adaptations are up there on the scale, but did they manage to beat out their books?
