"Forrest Gump"

 

"The author of Fight Club said he prefers the movie."

 

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The book is bad. Worse than bad. The movie is literally [email protected]#king magic."

 

"Shutter Island.

The book somehow feels completely lifeless, even though it’s almost all the same events and dialogue. The movie enriches the material, has a great color palate, is loaded with good character actors, and improves the ending tremendously."

 

"If comics count, then Captain America: Civil War

The original story honestly has everyone acting needlessly like j#rks, to the point where both sides seem unlikeable. While the movie actually makes you sympathize with both sides."

"Jaws"

 

"Internet please don’t hate me but lord of the rings. I loved reading the hobbit, but reading fellowship of the ring really feels like watching paint dry at points. Besides the movies are masterpieces."

 

"The Godfather. The film cut out subplots from the book that wouldn’t have been out of place in a soap opera"

 

"Children of Men. I almost always prefer the book over the movie but it was just so freaking well done in a visual medium."

 

"Of Mice And Men; incredible work by Steinbeck, the film with Gary Sinese and John Malkovich is incomparable."

"Red Dragon (the first book with Hannibal Lecter).

Aside from the stellar cast (Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Ralph Finnes), the pacing and visuals of the movie were fantastic. On top of that, seeing ‘The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun’ artwork and tattoo visually really cemented the film over book experience, from my perspective."

 

"Blade Runner.

DADOES seemed like a grab-bag of proto-cyberpunk which just didn’t feel cohesive. Blade Runner’s focus on Deckard’s case and its relationship to the human condition worked so much better."

 

"The book for Gone Girl is good but the movie sticks with me a lot more."

 

"The Green Mile. The book was really good but they did such a great job with the cast and the whole tone of the movie. The only thing that was missing was the evil caretaker at the nursing home."

 

"Jumanji

The book didn’t have Robin Williams."

"The Shawshank Redemption: originally a novella, although excellent, and I’ve read it 20+ times, the film is better."

 

"Amazon’s The Boys. It isn’t a movie but a tv show but I still think it’s relevant to mention here. The original comic while it was okay it really didn’t have any character depth and the writing always felt pointlessly edgy to me."

 

"Jurassic Park"

 

"Princess Bride was much better as a movie. The pacing was better and the cast brought the story to life."

Sanford,

Firstly, you're an @$$ with terrible taste, because the movies were incredible. However, anyone who thinks they're better than the books should just stick to reading trashy romance novels and leave the incredibly well-written material to those who have the capacity to appreciate them.

Fay,

Speaking of Tolkien, The Hobbit franchise was NOT incredible. Those movies were truly awful and Peter Jackson showed himself to be a hack like Lucas, who's success only depended on listening to smarter people around him. Something he didn't do with the Hobbit, or King Kong. So if you really find his brand of garbage 'good' over the wholesome spirit Tolkien wrote the Hobbit in, it's almost certain you never read it, and are just another popcorn munching moron they were made for.

LOTR is a bad book, it's boring, there are bad folks song and sh#tty hobbit lore all the way deux ex machina is used many times, there are plot holes so huge even your mama would fall in....
The ending is so sh#tty it's not even an ending.

Bernard,

LOTR.... is 6 books, but I haven't read them since just before the first movie came out so my memory could fail me a bit...

The Hobit book was ok, but how the F did he manage to stretch that little book into those movies....

Couldn't even finnish Silmarillion...
