Some movies that come from books I wouldn't really call adaptations. David Brin's Postman and Stephen King's Running Man come to mind when I think of movies where they could have skipped paying the author money.

I think it depends on what you mean by a great film adaptation. If you are looking for a really good movie or if you are looking for a really good movie that is really true to (at least the spirit of) a really good book.
