Me: Let me show you this meme I saw
Everyone I know:
I'm guilty of this with Game of Thrones/ASoIaF
And that's before the last 2 seasons obviously
@Duncan5769, I read the books too but I still liked them. Just me
@Duncan5769, What the heck is ASolaF?
@FalconHalo, a Song of Ice and Fire. It's the name of the book series game of thrones is based on. Game of Thrones is just the name of the first book.
Okay I'mma say it, none of you other book readers can complain about your movies "Not being as good as the books" not until me and all the other Percy Jackson fans get a movie that at least has something to do with the books or is at the very least enjoyable.
Is that kid holding a pipe?
@jkos171, yes but this pipe blows bubbles so it’s ok
Just cause the book was good (and probably better) doesn’t mean the movie can’t be good/enjoyable.
"Hey, a show just came out about this book/comic"
"Allow us to be cunts and spoil everything every 3 seconds before the first season even ends"
Book will always be better than the movie which is why its better to watch the movie first cuz then once you read the books everything is awesome and all you can say is "wow that make so much sense now" "oh this new thing i read in the book is so cool" "knowing the actors faces and voices is helping me keep all these book characters separated"
But the movie you will always compare to the book. "Why didnt they put (x) into the movie?" "Thats not how the book did it" "i never pictured that character like that. I don't like it"
source: ive done both. every book i read that had a movie after i have scrutinized and disliked. every movie i saw first i loved the books
I'm that person... I'm sorry
I went to see Art of racing in the rain and have never read the book. I assumed there would be racing, based apon the trailer scenes........only 5 minutes total of race scenes. ONE being Penske proto easily passing Mazda which is absolute baloney, but they had 2015 Viper (good times). Its a chickflick......
Only movie I can think of that was better than the book was 300
Then again that's a graphic novel so I guess it doesn't count
@Sexy Homunculus, Fight Club the movie is better than the book. Only one I know.
