Book vs. Movie (POLL)

Sort by: Showing 9 items
Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (45 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 0
Red Dragon - Thomas Harris
My choice: Book

The movie is good, but not even close to the Silence of the Lambs. The book is more interesting.

People who added this item 143 Average listal rating (83 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
The Silence of the Lambs - Thomas Harris
My choice: Movie

The performances by Jodie Foster, Ted Levine and especially Anthony Hopkins were absolutely amazing.
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:
People who added this item 89 Average listal rating (48 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
Hannibal - Thomas Harris
My choice: Book

The things that makes the book better than the movie are the brain part and having Clarice join Hannibal rather than try to arrest him. The brain part is wonderfully detailed in the book.

K-PAX (2001)
My choice: Book

I only vaguely remember this one, both the movie and the book. I do remember that the book was more interesting.

Life of Pi - Yann Martel
My choice: Book

The book is amazing. When I first heard that there would be a movie based on it, I was curious, but I didn't think that it would translate well to film. The movie is good, but there are some books that just plain don't work as well as movies.

People who added this item 3993 Average listal rating (2641 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
My choice: Movie

Another hard one to choose. Most people probably didn't know that the movie is based on a book. I didn't at first.
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:
People who added this item 1394 Average listal rating (895 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.9
Carlito's Way (1993)
My choice: Movie

The book was poorly done and made me not even care about what happened. The movie was very well done.
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:
People who added this item 14 Average listal rating (9 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
Casino Royale - Ian Fleming
My choice: Movie, the 2006 once starring Daniel Craig, not the 1967 acid trip

Both are masterpieces, but if you've seen the movie, you know why I chose it.
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:
People who added this item 129 Average listal rating (76 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 0
The Godfather - Mario Puzo
I've saved the hardest one for last.

My choice: Tie!

Both are perfectly done masterpieces.
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:

Which is better - the book or the movie based on it?
