which do you prefer the books or the movies personally i LOVE the books
They are both equal to me.. Although I dont like how in the movie they screwed some things up.. but w/e it was still awesome
I thought there was already a thread like this? Either way, I prefer the books, but the movies are really good...
I like the books more becuase there is much more of info and stuff
Books all the way, the movies were crap compared to them.
Book, for sure. Though the films are easily some of the best ever made. That says a lot about the quality of the story in general.
Only The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and probably Eragon, can say that the film was better than the book.
I have never really seen a movie that is better than the book. Only a few movies have ever even equalled the book in my opinion. The ones you mentioned are equal with the books in terms of story-telling and the enjoyment factor of them.
books, end of story.
Definitely the books.
Books, Books, Books. Films where to far from the books in my view
What?! May Balrogs feast upon you! :balrog:
Nah, jk, but I really don't see the movie being better than LWW, but to each his own.
As for the LotR books or movies, I will, of course, go with the Books. They aren't even on the same artistic plane...much less better than the Books. But I think that the films are the best adaption possible, and Peter Jackson did a wonderful job with them.
books! i mean for real, there is so much more detail, and so much more everything.
But still the movies were awesome and i loved them but i liked the books alot more.
Books, plain and simple. They have more detail. They're less limited with the use of descriptive actions and such. No chessy and ugly CGI. They retain a sense of intelligence, whatever is left, in the world.
NEVER! CoN books are MUCH better than the movie. Well, let me detract a little, they are MUCH better, but they are better, nontheless. You are right in the aspect, though, that the movie is the best adaptation of it's book counterpart than probably any other.
oh, and by the way, books. Much better than the movies, but I have to admit that I'm all about that Battle at the Pelennor Fields scene! It was AWESOME!
Nothing is going to compare to your own imagination and thats why reading the books is so much better. You have your own perfect images of the places and characters. Having said that the films are still absolutely great films. So enjoy both, yeah, cause we got the best of both worlds.
The books were actually about the same the same as the film. The Film spcied things up, but they missed things out, so it balanced it out.
To be fair, a lot of the book was kinda boring, and I hated reading about Frodo and Sam, but the films made those scenes more bearable. Yet still...the books had something to them the films didn't, I think its just the volume of content I suppose.
I agree. Books or movies. It is equal. And if I would be lazy I would say the movies are less boring
why not both? I prefer to read the book first. When they made LOTR, and it was popular, I was very pleased. Sure, my imagination is far better than the film, but I'd rather have the Jackson movies than NOT:draught:
honestly I am in love with both. There are certain things that the movies can't capture from the books. And there are certain things in the books that were just captured amazingly well on film. So for me it is both.
