I will always choose books over the movies because they are much better but movies like Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings and The Giver was okay.

I could do without nearly all movies that were born as books, simply because it takes away the beauty of the image I had made in my mind of places and characters.

Got confused there for a while haha. Anyway, there are great movies made from books but I still prefer the book more than the screen.
