Top Ten Reasons Movies Are Better Than BooksParasN2000
The Top Ten
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? BOOKS ARE 10X MORE INTENSE! In books, you can make it as intense as you want, but in a movie, the intensity level is lower because somebody is "acting it out." In books, the intense parts take longer to get through, which makes it so intense and suspenseful. I can tell that you sir have never read a good book in your life, so therefore I suggest you get your butt to the nearest library and READ A BOOK.
And if you don't want a movie that is intense? The whole point of books is that there are multiple reading levels, and genres. You can read a book that is intense; and if you don't want it as intense, go and get a different book! - AndieOfBooks
Books make me cry, that is intense, is it not?
Books are intense too! - micahisthebestV 1 Comment
Why does everything need to have special effects? In movies, you can barely tell what is happening, everything goes so fast! In books, you can imagine at the pace you want, with the amount of special effects you want. - AndieOfBooks
Oh, and books don't? - Blight
Well, in books you can imagine it... - micahisthebest
Yeah right. Most movies you have to pay for, while Books, you can easily borrow at the nearby Library. - Blight
Movies are easily found online for free.
Riighhht. 'cause you can't just walk to a bookshelf in your house and grab a book to read. You have to walk over to the T.V., squat down to pick a movie, put it in, turn the T.V. on, turn the volume up, and go and sit on the couch. (sarcasm) - AndieOfBooks
EASIER ACCESS?!?! BOOKS: GO TO LIBRARY, READ MOVIES: BUY 200$ TICKET, GO TO THEATRE, WATCH 2 HOUR MOVI, FORGET EVERYTHING NEXT DAY
This frankly makes no sense to me. If you want to stop reading, you look at the page number, and you close the book. How is that harder, and more time-consuming, then finding the remote, pausing the movie, memorising what time it was at, then turning everything off? - AndieOfBooks
Because you never stop reading a book. It's too good for that. - Blight
It takes days to read a book but only a hour to two hours to watch a movie
Visualising the story is awesome! Imagining the characters the way YOU want in the voice YOU want, not that the actors want!
This is where imagination comes in. If you don't have such a thing, you're better off with the movies. - Blight
Visualizing is the best part; you are totally in control.
Visualizing is better to do though. - micahisthebest
That's why you're smarter if you read, not if you watch. - Blight
If you can not understand a book, you are reading the wrong level. It would be like trying to read War and Peace, when you just barely started learning to form sentences. Reading is a skill that you develop, it is rare for it to just 'appear' and BOOM suddenly you can read! Build up your skill, then try reading the book again. - AndieOfBooks
SERIOUSLY? MOVIES MAKE EVERYTHING CONFUSING! BOOKS EXPLAIN THINGS SO KUCH BETTER WITH DETAIL AND THIS LIST IS INACCURATE
Yes but in a book, you can pause whenever you want (not that I advise it! ). And when you want to read again, you can re-read the last sentences to remind yourself. You can't precisely go back in a movie to "the last conversation" or "The last fight scene" In a book, all that is possible, and more. - AndieOfBooks
The best part is reading slowly and being excited about what jappens next.
That is completely dependant on the person's individual taste. I believe that if you do not like reading, you are either reading the wrong book, or doing it wrong. - AndieOfBooks
I love going to a movie and having fun with friends and family. I can't exactly do that with a book.
Yup, movies more appealling then books, use your brain! Its funner to read than watch a movie
I BLOODY HATE BOOKS BECOUSE NOT ALL OF THEM ARE TURNED INTO FILMS
That is totally dependant on the person, and their parents. You can be any age to read a book, but your experiences may differ depending on the movie. In a book, you can imagine it for yourself, and if you don't understand something, you can make it up. Movies are more dangerous. They implant images in a child's brain, this can cause nightmares, insomnia, and just generally being afraid of stuff. - AndieOfBooks
This goes for Books more than movies. Movies have gory scenes, but with Books, you imagine it yourself, not having to see it as gory. No offense, but inaccurate list... - Blight
No way! So a 5 year old can watch Chucky, huh? - micahisthebest
A seven year old could watch an R rated movie?V 1 Comment
Yes, but in a book, it is yours; no two people ever really read the same book. In a movie, yes, there is art, but authors master the art of words. This is what makes books so much better. The fact that someone can manipulate you thoughts and feeling with symbols on a page, is remarkable. - AndieOfBooks
Anything can be reduced to words. Or, rather, increased, to words. - Blight
This is false, and you know it. You can eat whenever, while doing whatever. Also, just eat before you read. Or eat after. There are scientists that have said that multi-tasking may be unhealthy... - AndieOfBooks
You can eat with books, I do it everyday...
I eat while reading books
I watch Netflix and eat.V 1 Comment
This is because both music and books deserve you full attention. In movies, you can barely keep track of what is happening, because you are trying to pay attention to multiple characters, the plot, the surroundings, and the music. In books, you can take it you speed. - AndieOfBooks
Both books and movies deserve your full attention. To separate a part of you brain to listen to music while reading is unacceptable. - AndieOfBooks
You are reading the wrong books. Try Six of Crows, or The Way Of Kings, or Keeper Of The Lost Cities. I cannot say that some books are too detailed, but to judge the whole book species by one or two books you picked up, that you heart wasn't into reading, that is unacceptable! - AndieOfBooks
Thank u. Also if u read too much then your eyes would get ruined and then u have to get glasses. It happened to me and it would happen to u.
We just need to finish fireproofing houses so that firemen bird books at 451 degrees Fahrenheit.
