    well give me an example.

    books are great for escaping reality and getting lost in something else, but movies are the dogs bollocks because they titilate you visually.

    now say you're comparing fear loathing in las vegas, book to movie, that's a hard call, one of the best books i've read, but also one of the best movies i've watched

    but say anything by stephen king, the film never compares to the book.

    I can't read when I'm baked I just fall asleep.. But movies are awesome in that state..
    However I've never seen a movie and thought that it was better than the book, the reverse has happened ALOT.

    i dont have the attention span to watch a movie, bores the fuck out of me. id much rather read a book whilst commuting to work, or just before bed.

    dont get me wrong i do like a good movie.
