#21 Not only was the book better..... it was a whole different depiction way less shit exploding
The movie sucked

#25... I don't think better as such, but more so, brilliantly capturing the true essence of the books, yet Mr Tom bombadil is much missed

The movies are weak on it's own, but they are crap adaptation. It's plastic-cheap game cutscene-level, which is way more obvoius when you (try to) watch The Hobbit.

Overall you have very little idea on what makes movie better than book. Cutting things and simplyfying plot does not make them better story teller.

About the other books and movies that I've read and watch:

Godfather:
Both movies are great on it's own but it does not make them better than books.

The Prestige:
The book seems to be good until finale which is crap.
Movies are typical Nolan-like pulp, he's crappy storyteller.

Jurassic Park.
Movie is great on it's own, but book is much wider and Spielberg have to cut good part of it to make reasonable size movie. Other plots were included in part III.

As for Starship Troopers (I didn't read the book) - the movie was dumb. Satiric tone was nicely made (as Verhoven did in Robocop), but the rest was huge pile of crap.

I can't agree with #7. I prefer that original ginger stocky guy as main character in story.

Fight Club (1999)

Directed by: David Fincher

Written by: Jim Uhls

Based on: Fight Club (1996) by Chuck Palahniuk

Why it’s better: It largely comes down to the ending, so spoiler alert: In the novel, the explosive malfunctions, while in the film, there are multiple explosives that do in fact detonate, taking down several skyscrapers. It plays into the film’s tone, which is mercifully more critical of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and his agenda than the novel is.
