I couldn't agree more with this post. My love of books is far greater than that of movies, but movies turned into books aren't generally very enjoyable for me.
I'd choose a book over a movie any day. Maybe I'm weird, but I find books to be much more engaging, and they allow you to make all of the scenes within your mind. Movies are rather passive activities for me.
