Even though it’s usually a mistake (grin) … do movies made out of books make you want to read the original?Okay this is an interesting question. Here's what I think about this. When I KNOW firsthand that the movie came from a book - I don't watch the movie UNTIL I've read the book. If eventually I've watched a movie then LATER realize that it came from a book - I hunt the book down and read it.
WHY? Simply because the book 'version' is way better than the movie. I mean why do screen writers and directors edit out the BEST part of the book. They change the whole ending or change big parts of the story altogether. I don't get it. They justify this because they seem to think that this is better where in fact it's not! I mean, as everybody and 70% will say that they like the book better than the film!
If I have read the book first, I don't usually watch the movie anymore because I know it'll suck, everytime!
