    This isn't related to anime, so I am moving this to the Sensory Pleasures Forum.

    I prefer books to movies. Movies condense everything into less than three hours, while books can go on for pages and pages, detailing one character. Books are far more intimate, you get to know the characters; you aren't limited by what the actor can portray on screen. While, yes, you lose certain things by not seeing a scene with your eyes, it prompts the imagination and stimulates the brain.

    Books tend to be more in depth. All the movies are good for is seeing certain scenes set up visually.

    I have to agree with divine punishment because books allow you to use your imagination more about how certain things happen. Also, it's nice to be able to read a really good story for a few days than see a good movie in less than a few hours in my opinion.

    well i cannot choose. but i will explain both, cuz im just like that ok books, as someone said can develope your midn, because you can visualise the characters, and the mosters and maybe relate to the feelings of the characters. a good 400 page book takes maybe 1-2 weeks, giving you a little time each day to forget and site quietly reading. movie theatres do not give you this because, half the time, you talk with your friend and eat, and visualising and comparing your life situation to the characters is the last thing on ur mind (what is she WEARING?... i like - Lmfao inside jk) and for a book you take your time, rather than paying 12 bux to see it for maybe 1 1\2 to 2 hrs. and also, you can keep the book if you like it and re-read it, but you cannot re-film the movie, cuz its called piracy :P and another thing is that some movies leave out parts in the book, like lord of the rings. the full collectors set has 9 books, and the movie talks about maybe the short version of 4 of the books. but inna movie, you hav visualisations, and if ur easily distracted or easily bored (lazy lol) its easier to watch rather than comprehend. so its your desicion. for fun, i go to movies. for piece of mind, i read books.

    movies... everyone is like: oh but with a book u use ur imagination to create the characters and the environment...
    but how long does it you to read it? A LOT OF TIME!
    with a movie, you just sit down for 2 hours, get some food and drinks and thats it...
    Thank you SasuraiHell for making my sig. ur the best.

    Movies all the way! I just don't like to read books! It gets boring. Movies are entertaining! Books are not you have to read what happens.
