kxs401: The book is almost always better. The only exception I've come across is Silence of the Lambs. The movie is much better.

Mentat: Nice troll subby.
Earpj: "The Running Man" is a great movie. Perfect when I need something mindless to watch.
Harv72b: I don't need no stinkin' slide show to know that the correct answer is "all of them"./Especially Starship Troopers.

LoneWolf343: I couldn't get through the first chapter of Dune, so I better stay the hell away from the movie, I guess.

NeoCortex42: LoneWolf343: I couldn't get through the first chapter of Dune, so I better stay the hell away from the movie, I guess.I don't see how the movie would make a lot of sense to someone who hasn't read the book, unless you just really want to see Sting and Captain Picard fighting with knives.The Dune mini-series by Sci-Fi on the other hand, is worth checking out. I think it's a great adaptation and makes perfect sense on its own.
thecpt: i call bull shiat on troy and running man.
Mugato: thecpt: i call bull shiat on troy and running man.Actually, The Running Man book was better than the film. It's highly unlikely that we'll ever see a faithful adaptation of the book though.

Subdue their bellies: The 13th Warrior was better than Eaters of the Dead, like a kick to the balls is better than a punch to the balls.
Mugato: and I'm assuming the book explains why those eagles couldn't just fly the Hobbits to Mordor
coco ebert: The Great Gatsby sucks, in whatever medium.
James Scameron: The Watchmen was an illustrated book for children not an actual "book".ftfy
varmitydog: Forrest Gump. The book was high southern camp, heavily playing on an "idiot savant" theme, that had Gump as a wrestler, an astronaut, a harmonica player in a rock band, a chess wizard and an actor wearing a costume in a monster movie. He didn't take up shrimping, he took up aquaculture. Bubba was a white guy who played with him at Alabama who got drafted with him, Lt Dan didn't turn him into a multimillionaire and his momma was timid mess, always getting ripped off. And the best two characters in the book, the wild man Curtis and the female astronaut with an attitude, were completely left out, along with the best story in the book, the training camp incident where he blew up the boiler.The movie changed the book into a politically correct baby boomer's nostalgia feel good movie. It became a big hit because it was formula written for a target demographic. But what a disappointment for Winston Groom fans to see what a pile of sh*t they made of his masterpiece.
