Feature and Follow - Movie Better That the Book?
Definitely. The ORIGINAL Star Wars movie was better than the book. After that, not so much. A lot of the follow-on books are better than any of the follow-on movies. But the first...ah, the movie hands down.
I would have to also throw into that Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy and the Harry Potter movies, mostly, in all of these cases, because the books were too dense for me to dig through. The movies simplified the plot and tore away many of the subplots. The story lost some of its richness but gained a lot in "readability".
Looking forward to comments!!
