    Books > Movies - Prove me wrong

    Books are always better than the movies that are adapted to them. I will hear any arguments to the contrary.

    What the hell? You can't prove anyone wrong on this, as it is almost always a matter of opinion.

    2/10


    Yeah, I think your thread deserves a 2/10. Prove me wrong.

    Regardless of your "matter of opinion" you still posted in my thread, therefore it was obviously enough to warrant your interest, which would at the very least deserve 5/10.

    I read and post in plenty of shitty 2/10 threads, your proof is flawed.

    The fact that link even mentions Minority report is an automatic disqualification.

    Let's see. A good, decent sized book, takes like what, 2-3hours to read maybe? Some are even longer? A movie is 1.5hrs give or take. Therefor, movies win.

    The burden of proof is on you because you made the claim, buddy. I liek them books and mobies. Though, I only readz classical literature (divine comedy, leviathan, penses, etc. etc.) and avoid fiction (lord of the rings and harry potter bullshit)

    Yea, this is true.

    It is partly opinion, but I donno, I don't like the comparisons in most cases - it's another medium of expressing a story (between a movie and a book). I frankly find both more enjoyable if I separate the two and see them as independent.

    What about movies about movies based on books (Adaptation)?
