Have you ever judged a book by its movie?

Of course, we all know that we must *NOT* (yes! Notice the bold and the emphasis!) judge a book by its movie... But have you ever actually done that? Honestly?

Have you ever watched a movie and never had the guts to pick up the book?

Have you ever watched a movie and had to read the book?

Do you agree that 99.99% of the times the books are way better than their cinematic versions?

I see HP and Twilight to be amongst the books that are chosen after watching movies.. Do you think it has something to do with the fantasy component? A lot of mature people think that kinda stuff is for the kids until you actually sit down to read and so relate to it?

slumdog millionaire / q&a
these two I will say are both great in their own ways...  I first watched the movie then picked up the book to read about the love story more but the book was not revolved around the love story but rather more of the life experiences... I found the movie better for the love angle and the book better on the life angle
 
3 idiots / 5pointsomeone
by farr the book is 1000x better than the movie.  The movie seemed to disney like and 'all iz well' type where as the book deals with the realities better and doesnt candy coat everything.  One part I liked in the movie was the way they showed how desi parents are sometimes giving a harmful effect on their children when trying to 'motivate' them
 
nameske
First one I'll say that the movie was minimally better with.  The book somewhat bored and dragged at times.  I felt the movie sumrised the book in a well put abridged version and spared us the not so necessary details
 
Pride and Prejudice
Do i even have to say anything here? book was gazillion times better than the movie... goddamn the movie was so terribly made
 
The Kite Runner
Read the book first then saw the movie...the movie was too much of 'happy ending' for me to even like..i hated how they made everythign so 'light' and whatever... the book i swear to go has to be on your 'read before i die' list... the author is a genius with writing and painting out a beautiful/bittersweet story...
