I'm confused why the BBC Pride and Prejudice is there, to be honest. It's a mini series (but it is really good). The 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie was a nice adaptation, though.
Can't comment on a few of these because I haven't seen the movies, but I think Les Miserables is indeed an excellent adaptation (I cried from start to finish because it's just that powerful, and I am not a crier). That particular version of Oliver Twist was also very well done. I prefer the 2002 Count of Monte Cristo, and I prefer the the 2006 mini series for Jane Eyre.

I've seen Les Miserables too and it was awesome. I also saw the BBC series of Oliver Twist, which was very good. I saw the musical Oliver, which had some great songs but the BBC series does the book justice better. I agree the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film was a good adaptation, but I haven't seen the BBC series. I haven't seen the rest, though. But I would like to.
I will also add that To Kill a Mockingbird was an excellent adaptation of the book, one of the best I've seen.

I've always considered Kenneth Branagh's interpretation of Hamlet to be excellent. Granted, I've never actually read the play so I'm going entirely by what others have said, but it is one of the few if not the only movie version that includes all the scenes from the play, including the play within a play which normally gets cut for time.
His version of Henry V also has won many accolades, though not to the level of Hamlet.
