Well, yeah, this is pretty much stating the obvious. One cannot take the information in 400 pages or so and sink it down to an hour and a half and expect to get nearly the same experience. Even if the story is the same and the characters are surprisingly accurate and the directing and editing are top notch, a movie is not a book. :)

Plus, the whole complete lack of imagination thing when watching a movie.




I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

I often get very angry and frustrated when the characters in a movie differ dramatically from the images I had for them in my head when reading the book it's based on. I agree, reading books is all about your vivid imagination. Watching a movie after you've read the book feels like someone has done your work for you and the results are not satisfactory.

Most times, I won't watch a movie if I've read the book first.
