Book vs. Movie (POLL)

Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 74 Average listal rating (44 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.

The Silence of the Lambs - Thomas Harris
My choice: Movie

The performances by Jodie Foster, Ted Levine and especially Anthony Hopkins were absolutely amazing.

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.

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.

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.

My choice: Movie

The book was poorly done and made me not even care about what happened. The movie was very well done.

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.

The Godfather - Mario Puzo
I've saved the hardest one for last.

My choice: Tie!

Both are perfectly done masterpieces.

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