It's not hatred, they're just criticisms that don't bother me

"If something isn't good in an adaptation, the fact that it is the same in the source doesn't matter at all."
True, the critics can dislike it and express that fairly, but that's not what we mean when we say "oh it was the same in the book so it doesn't matter." Rather, we mean "oh, it was the same in the book, which I liked, so I'll also like it in the movie." It doesn't make the critic unreasonable--on the contrary, like you said, a lot of the reviews have been reasonable--it just makes his or her criticism inapplicable to me as a fan of the book if he or she is criticizing something that is the book's fault rather than the adaptation. He/she isn't telling us anything we don't already know.
