Many times I hear folks complain about books being made into Movies and often times it makes sense but I also think it has to do with your expectation going in.

What do you think about Books being made into Movies? Share an experience or two with us :)

The book is always better than the movie IMO. I don't think I have seen a movie that was a book being better. But that is from my perspective. I suppose I just need to come across that one movie that is better. I think what makes a book better is the fact we read what is on someone's mind, and in a movie, they can't exactly do that, it has been done but it is just not the same thing.

I think that books do tend to have the upper hand on a movie just because of the format that the story is being told. It is more acceptable to have a long series of books it seems than a long series of movies and even if that isn't a roadblock I think that an issue is that some details that are in books aren't acceptable to be translated into a movie.
