I prefer the book to the movie (if it is one I had come across before I became interested in the move) because I feel like you get more story and you can get inside the characters' heads more.

Usually the book. I like being allowed to create the scenes on my own. The Harry Potter movies seriously disappointed me. I haven't seen the 5th, 6th or any of the 7th movie. I won't watch the 8th either. The world they created is nothing like what I had in my mind so I had a really hard time following along with the dialogue. I was too fascinated by how I'd pictured it completely different. LOL

I don't think I've ever liked the movie more than the book. There's just so much more that you can do over hundreds of pages that you can't do in a few hours of film.

I say this all the time. I have been seriously disappointed with every movie based on a book I have read. I know they have a limited amount of time, but I really hate when they cut parts out for the movie.

I agree. I didn't read any Harry Potter books, or watch the movies but I always create my own scenes and then watch the movie and think . . . what the hell? This isn't right. lol.

Book is almost always better, I usually end up disappointed with movie adaptations. There are exceptions however with examples such as Twilight, I hated having to read Stephanie Meyer's writing and found it much easier to watch the movies.

I think that usually the book is better, but I think there are exceptions. I thought "The Shawshank Redemption" was a much better movie than short story.

I generally feel the book is always better. I also get my own images in my head of what the characters look like and sound like, and the movie always ruins that!

I feel the book is more often than not better. Not because I have my own pictures - indeed, I quite like the visuals of the Potter movies, erratic as they are - but film conversions have often felt like cliffnote versions. Like I'm missing out on most of the story.

when I do not have time to read the book, I watch the movie. All depends on what I have going on in my life at that moment.

Usually the book is better because it can cover more content, and it encourages you to make you own vision of what the world is like, how the characters look and talk. When books I'm really fond of are turned into movies, I usually think of the movies as alternate universe versions of the books. That way I can sit back an enjoy them, and not get as mad that someone messed up my view of how the books are.

The books are always better, movies just cannot provide all the little details that are in the books. But I'll always watch the movies that come along, just for visual entertainment.

Book. Books are always better. Its impossible to cram all the happens in the books into the movies. However, I am currently reading a book in which I enjoyed the movie more. This is the one and only time it has happened though.

I hate books with a passion, so definitely movies.

I, too, like books because they are more detailed, but it's nice to see the movie version at some point. Harry Potter didn't disappoint!

Are we just talking in general? I usually prefer books over movies~ because you get more insight and detail that way.
