My thoughts, opinions, and whatnots.

Books vs. Movies

I recently talked to a classmate who noticed that the book I had brought with me to class. A little FYI, the book in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Anyway, she said that she didn’t particularly care for the book and asked how the movie was, because I had seen the movie. I told her that it was similar to the book, at least up until the part that I read. Anyway, because of that conversation, we got to talking about how it’s better to watch a movie that based on books first, and then read the book. I find it to be true because if you do that, at least you wouldn’t be as disappointed. Now, if you were to read the book first and the saw the movie, then you would probably be more disappointed. I say that because if you read the book first, you come to have higher expectations for the movie. And if the movie doesn’t have a certain character or storyline, etc., then you’ll probably be like, “Why they didn’t include so-and-so or why they didn’t include that subplot?” That in turn would lead to disappointment. But if you were to watch the movie first, then you wouldn’t know if a certain character or certain storyline was included or not. Anyway, that’s just what I think.
