Exactly why it's a pet peeve of mine when people are all "The book. Read the book. Don't read the book. Book, book, book. Story is messed up going from book to screen. Totally lame."
I straight up tell people "But I'm not reading the book. I'm watching the movie."
"But I'm saying, they have to..."
"No... no they don't. Not to get my admission they don't. They just have to make an interesting story. And make it into a movie. Which they did. So I'm going to watch it. If you're just gonna complain about it, how about you bring the book and read that in the theater so you can shut your damn mouth and let us enjoy it without you proclaiming to the whole world that you know how to read and that you've read this book? How 'bout that?"
I've said that a few times in here.
Can't STAND that.
"Ooooh, the BOOOOOK."
Man, I'm not talking about the damn book.
Yo. Word for word your thoughts on the whole 'Book/Movie' thing is SPOT ON.
That's exactly how I feel. I didn't read any of the hunger games books and enjoyed the hell out of those first 2 movies.
My nerdy friends were like "eh they're alright, the book was better."
I'm like OKAY, but WHO WAS TALKING BOOKS!?
DID YOU LIKE THE MOVIE OR NOT? period.
I loved them.
And if reading the books makes your expectations so high that you're so easily disappointed then I'm happy that I'm choosing not to read the books.
It sucks to want to discuss the movie with my friends who've read the books but we can't have a simple conversation because ALL THEY DO IS COMPARE EVERYTHING TO THE BOOKS.
An entertaining movie is an entertaining movie.
