I like books better, but I do love me a good movie.

You can read books at your own pace, whereas movies are at the pace the screenplay writer intended. So, if it's to fast or too slow, too bad.

Also, books are usually longer than movies, in general. So, you can get more complicated plot lines.

Oh, and don't forget, movies are usually made with the lowest common denominator in mind.

But still, movies are a good format for some kinds of stories.

Depends. I enjoy books more, considering I read like 200 books a summer, but I do love a good action or sci-fi movie.

If you're talking books turned movie, I suggest you watch blimeycow's video on it.

Truer words were never spoken. That works in any context, actually. But very fitting here. Smile

 So true! I find myself saying, "You know, there's an awesome video you should watch on that topic" all the time. Very Happy

 I love Blimeycow. Though I don't watch them often because I can watch more that 20 in a row.

ah ok i see.




"Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for mortal men doomed to die, one for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the land of Mordor where the shadow lie."
-J.R.R Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.
