June 26, 2007 11:34am CST
We have all seen movies that where originally book Harry potter springs to mind as one of the most famous ones today others not so famous The Devil wear Prada, Stephen Kings IT, Killer Clowns and so. I personally prefer to just watch the movies with the exception of Of Mice N Men when I was a child. Which films have you seen that originated as book and did you prefer the film or the book and why

The books I've read that have become movies usually disappoint. The books have so much more detail and you get your own picture of how the characters look and act. Due to movie time constraints it usually has to be trimmed down considerably and then they actually change critical parts in it. There have been movies made from books though that I have no desire to read. The Lord of the Rings comes to mind.

i would prefer watching a movie than reading a book. i don't recall if i ever watched films that originated from a book. oh yeah, harry potter! i like this film. i am visual learner and i can pick up a lot of things just by watching something, this is why i prefer to watch films than reading a book.
