    "Good movie, but as always, book was way better."

    Not to get sidetracked, but there are many, many cases where the movie is better than the book (insofar as they can be compared.) In a lot of cases, in fact, a movie so overshadows its book version that most people don't even know that it was based on a book (see: "Rififi," "Vertigo," "Touch of Evil," "The Graduate," "Contempt," "The Manchurian Candidate," "Paths of Glory," "Nights of Cabiria," etc.) Most halfway objective viewers (ie, those who don't systematically prefer the novel form of storytelling over the cinematic form of storytelling) who have read the books and seen the films of those stories think that the film versions are significantly superior. Slightly more controversially, the films of "The Godfather," "The Shining," "Purple Noon," "The Postman Always Rings Twice," "The Silence of the Lambs," "Double Indemnity," "The Maltese Falcon," among others, are significantly better than their novel counterparts.

    "Lux lost it over Kevin Haynes, the garbageman. She'd wake up at 5 in the morning and lay about on the front porch like it wasn't completely obvious! She wrote his name in marker in all her bras and underwear and mum found them and bleached out all the Kevins. Lux has been crying on her bed all day." 6 years 6 months ago
