movie or the book

So is the movie always better the book? Sometimes but not always.  I reckon it depends on who produced or directed it.

  • Movie: Harry Potter series. Absolutely no disrespect to JK Rowling but the movies win this time. It’s probably a mixture of a great base story, the special effects, and the pace of each story.
  • Book: Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austin (1813). Beautiful book and enjoy it no matter how many times I pick it up. The movie does not do the book any justice whatsoever.
  • Movie & Book: Lord of the Rings. I’ve read the book and watched the DVDs several times and I have no clear favourite. Tolkien is brilliant, I’ve mentioned that before, but Sir Peter Jackson is also brilliant and that’s a fact noone can deny.
