I Know The Book Is Better Than The Movie

    Funnily Enough...

    The book usually IS better than the movie, but I find it hilarious that the logo for the group is "Forrest Gump." "Forrest Gump" is one of the prime examples for me of cases where the book isn't better than the book.  The book is a ginormous, ridiculous, big ball of fail...

    Twilight Series

    I read the entire series. I enjoy the books very much. I watched to movies as well; just as many others I enjoy the books better than the movies. I like the movies but books allow for more detail than movies. We really can not compare the two because they are two different works...

    Funny..

    I was just thinking about this today. I just finished Stephen King's It and moved on to The Lovely Bones. I have this bad habit of seeing movies before reading the books but I can be honest when I say that the book is ALWAYS better than the movie. Sometimes though.. I still like...

    Wild Imagination

    There's no question about it, no director can't beat it... My imagination makes any fictious book better than they can on film. Seriously though, characters tend to be so much fuller and richer in books than they can ever put on screen. Written descriptions of scenery can be...

    Always Better

    The reason the book is better then movie, in the book the writer can explain a lot more and you can picture it perfectly in your head. Pick your own characters. People you think would be great playing the person and you imagine them as your reading.

    Gone With The Wind

    Book or movie? A very tough call, in my opinion.

    An Exception

    The 1939 Goodbye, Mr Chips was a really good movie.  I don't recall the book being any better.

    Won'T See Lay Miz

    Pardon my French, but that's what Americans call the musical version.  Does it strike no one else as kind of funny, when a sad, profound, work of literature or life story is reduced and produced into a string of song and dance numbers?  The Simpsons attempted to parody such...

    Got Another One

    Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe. I really loved the movie. I was it in a Northern town where only I and my wife got half the jokes. It is one of my top five, and I am not a big fan of chick flicks. However, after nearly twenty years, I bought the book. I am...

    The Book Is Better Than The Movie

    I'm thinking about writing a book called: "I know the book is better than the movie". I wonder what the movie will be like.

    I read the 'Inkheart' trilogy by Cornelian

    Funke, and the books were fantastic, but the movie was catastrophic! Take my advice, and never watch it; it didn't even follow the book!

    Shutter Island

    I really loved the book by Dennis Lehane. It is a twistily-plotted psychological thriller. And the 1950's tough guy dialogue was a delight to read. There was much in the book that they couldn't put in the movie, because the story was so densely packed with dreams, action, and...

    Usually Better

    Some will say that you can't compare books and movies because they're different mediums, but people do compare them.  One reason that they can do so is because they experienced more pleasure from one or the other. While I was pleased to see someone have a go at...

    I Know The Book Is Better Than The Movie.

    I know I am not the only one.  There must be others.  Even when the movie is good, the book is often much better.  Here is my number one pick:  Forrest Gump.  A good movie, but an unbelievable, hysterically funny book that leaves my stomach muscles...

    A Christmas Story

    It's About The Order You See It In

    So Much More Detail.

    there is always so much more detail in the book then the movie. If you asked me which is better I would say book, but I don't like comparing them much because it makes me kinda mad and make me think that the movie isn't worth watching even if it is still really good. So there...

    Books Or Movies?

    Books are nearly always superior to the movie version of them. I love to read a good book,but I also like to watch a good movie. However a good book does not necessary translate into a good film.

    The Wizard Of Oz

    The book is quite different and goes into so much more detail than the movie. It's not strictly a kids book. If you have never read it, get it from the library. You know the characters already, how they ended up in the book is quite a change from the movie.
