    Have you watched a movie that was better than the book?

    People always say the book was better than the movie.  But is that always the case?  Are there any movies that were actually better than the book?

    Blade Runner >>>>>> Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

    It was a very loose adaptation, though. Amazing movie, didn't care much for the book.

    In my opinion,the book is always better than the film.  So my answer is no.

    I enjoyed the movie The Help better than the book. I saw the movie first and I think that makes a difference. If I read the book first I tend to like the book better.

    Not yet. I've read many books that were then made into movies and I don't think the movies are ever as good.

    Oh yes, many times. One in particular is Christmas Shoes and the sequel.

      We'll, if you didn't read the book, you can't actually say you liked it better.  You only have half the information.

    I think Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was better as a movie than a book. I wouldn't say that about any other book in the HP series, but that was my least favorite entry, but they made the movie version a lot more entertaining. I would also say that the first Twilight was better as a movie than a book, but I'm a terrible judge because I didn't like the book or the movie. I just thought the movie was slightly less bad.
