Have you ever watched a movie and thought ” the movie is better than the book!”?Have you ever watched a movie and thought ” the movie is better than the book!” ?? Kadhijah #questionnaire
A Dog’s Purpose and The Shack
Yes!!!! A Walk To Remember movie was so much better than the book. Though i do like the book too
The Martian for me:)
The 50 shades movies were way better.
Yes!!! I thought the movies were kinda cute, but did not like that guy at all. Gave off a creepy vibe!
I haven’t seen it yet!!!
What about Harry Potter movies? They were better than books imo.
They are great, but the books are way better… There is no way they can cram all that into a three hour movie anyway!
@Kadhijah, I never seen Harry Potter or read thr books so I’ll take your word.
Lord of the Rings. Those books are very difficult to read, but I find the movies very enjoyable.
They are a bit of a commitment for sure gagah
Forrest Gump. But in my defence: the book was written in spoken-language rather than written language and I was new at English.
For series: the vampire diaries! However very addictive to read, I always wondered what drug she was on while writing some of those books.
You have an extraordinary imagination power then!
James Bond 🙂
The Girl on the Train!
Boy in Striped Pyjamas
The city of bones #1 in the mortal instruments series… Don’t hate me
I found the book kinda childish :p I thought the movie was more mature…
Also, World War Z and A Stir Of Echoes
World War Z!! Agreed 100%
I thought the book was boring Af
Yes. Practical Magic and Aquamarine.
To Kill A Mockingbird…… know the book is a classic and I liked it a lot but the movie was better.
Yes. Ready Player One
The Princess Bride, Somewhere in Time, Zoo (TV show), and The Magicians (TV show).
Memoirs of a Geisha. The movie brought some depth to the story that lacked in the book.
The Twilight movies were better.
Only ONE time. It was The Help. I liked the book but also really liked the movie.
The best of me
Power of One
Eat, Pray, Love
Under the Tuscan Sun. Book/Real Frances honestly wasn’t a super great person.
Silver Linings Playbook
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
The shack..eat pray love..liked both….but enjoyed the movie..
Not movie but tv show Vampire Diaries
Same, however I wish they would have made Elena a Guardian and her life being tied to Damon’s. It would have been really neat to see that play out
Yes Lord of the rings
Horns. I dnf the book.
I definitely thought the movie for Catch me if you can was better.. think it was just all the technical jargon because it was a true story and many details of the book never made the movie
Not very often
Not very often
The Passion of the Christ
Not often but yes.
No, but I enjoyed Harry Potter. They brought my imagination to life and didn’t leave out a single detail ?
Ugh did you see GOF?
Goblet of Fire
My fav too!
Jaws…my favorite movie and I hated the book!! Okay, hated is strong, but I didn’t like the book nearly as much as I had hoped!!
13 reasons why
Not very often.
I’ve read a book and then watched the movie and I thought the book was way better. It was I am David.
Hardly ever but I thought it recently when I watched Murder on the Orient Express
It’s rare but yes. For me it was The Shack.
I Am Legend & A Love Song for Bobby Long
I thought that about Silver Linings Playbook
Me Before You -> so much of the emotion is captured in the faces vs being spoken, so I preferred seeing it on the screen.
The mortal instruments & twilight
I read the question wrong: no I haven’t
Rarely but watched a movie thought this is exzactly what I pictured !
I have. Not often
Time Traveler’s Wife. Loved the movie, couldn’t love the book as much?♀️
The only piece of literature that I have seen on screen that has EVER been better than the book, in my opinion, is The Handmaid’s Tale.
Now I’m curious because I didn’t like the book.
I loved the book. LOVED IT. The show is incredibly intense, awful, visceral, horrifying, and cathartic. Definitely check it out!!
I haven’t yet but the show American Gods is way better than the book
The Bridges of Madison County
The book of The Bridges of Madison County is better, I agree, BUT there’s absolutely no way to get that scene at the end, from the book, when they see each other in town, she cries, & her hand almost…..almost touches the door, as he pulls away at the light…AGGGGGG!!!! She sooooooo much wants to go to him, but doesn’t. I cry everytime!
God. Same. The broadway show gutted me too ??
Forrest Gump and The Handmaid’s Tale. I liked The Handmaid’s Tale but thought the show was better. Forrest Gump was just an all around terrible book lol
Tom Hanks is truly gifted, he brought Forrest Gump to life!
Yes. The Godfather.
For Love of the Game
That’s because the screenwriter is extra talented ! I do that all the time with books to screenplays
Most will disagree with this, but I preferred Trainspotting the film.
Yes, game of thorns, wonder, and the notebook; just to name a few
Captain Corelli’s Mandolin
Lord of the Rings, as Tolkien’s style lacks emotion and is heavy on description. He is first and foremost a linguist I guess. I adore the books and miss Tom Bombadil in the movies, but the movies are among the best movies ever made. I feel the same about all the Agatha Christie movies with Peter Ustinov too. I guess I also like the LOTR movies bc of the scenery, the same applies to evil under the sun and death on the nile.
No, the book always has more detail so your imagination can have a different perspective from someone else reading the same book.
A Man Called Ove was a much better movie than a book.
Yes I liked Coraline better as the movie than the book.
Only once, and that’s mainly because I don’t have much patience for too much description. It was in reference to the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
Interview with the Vampire.
The Fight Club movie is much better than the book.
I love the movie
The Lord of the Rings. Loved the movies but could never get into the books.
Twice. The movie “Logan’s Run” is better than the book. And the movie “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” is far better than the book.
What Dreams May Come…much better than the book!
Never, yet, maybe
Yes, I can think of several.
yes but not often
The TV show American Gods.
Charlie St. Cloud.
no, not really
Being There…the book is horrid. The movie is fantastic.
I have, for once in my life I feel that while watching and reading The Maze Runner
The Last of the Mohicans.
The tv show Mr. Mercedes was very well cast and definitely better than Stephen King’s book.
A few times
I went and saw Red Sparrow, and was reading the book, finished the book but the movie did not match the book at all
Cant say I have ?
I personally enjoyed the movie A Walk to Remember more than the book
I liked the modern setting in the movie and Mandy Moore became a favorite actress of mine afterwards
Fifty shades trilogy
Jaws. The movie is SOOO much better!
If you didn’t understand the book, you’d somehow love the movie more.
The Movie DREAM GIRLS was different from the book. I didn’t like the end.
Yes a few times. Stardust for example.
Only with LOTR
