Is the movie ever better than the book?
With all the hype of the Hunger Games being released on DVD and all the buzz of the cheating scandal between the real life Twilight couple, movies based on popular books sometimes get more attention than the books themselves.
But are the movies ever better than the books on which they’re based? Are there any movies you liked more than reading the book?

Lord of the Rings by far. Peter Jackson brought the world to life. HE did a great job.

The books were amazing! I dont think the movies will ever amount to the original story!

Fight Club. The movie is much better than the book, the author Chuck Palahniuk even said so.

The movie was great but the book is better (:
But you have to give them credit for pulling this whole thing off, I mean all the money the movie cost and how much work they had to do to put it together.

no the book was way better but i think they did good considering they had to try and fit the whole book in,in two hours.

The movie was nowhere near as good as the book.
I’ve yet to see a movie I considered better than the book. The films always lack details due to time issues that books do not, therefore making books a far better choice than their film adaptations.

I have personally always read the book and watched the movie, as to be fair to know exactly what the story is, and never have I found the movie better than the book. I believe the reason for this is because when you read a book, you have your imagination to do the work of creating the characters and scenery, based on what you’ve read. Many people can envision the same book in a million different ways, this is why movies based on books can cause many arguments. Never in my experience have I liked a movie more than a book, and I was ESPECIALLY disappointed in the Hunger Games. It was too short for the details to be included, and I personally found the movie to be way to scripted. Everyone seemed like they were reading they’re lines right off of the paper, instead of memorizing the lines and being the characters. I was really disappointed in this movie.
