Top Ten Reasons Movies Are Better Than Books

The Top Ten

1 They Are More Intense

Yea movies are better than
Books everyone in my class love movies than books

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.

You're fatter than anyone is fat.

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!

2 They Have Special Effects

But while reading a book you can imagine what the scene looks like - Unnamed Google User Remade

Movies are better because they cut out all of the unnecessary stuff that are in books. Movies are way less time consuming which is another reason why I prefer movies to books.

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.

Oh, and books don't?

3 You Have Easier Access to Them

So right they are way easier plus you can watch them anywhere !

Yeah right. Most movies you have to pay for, while Books, you can easily borrow at the nearby Library.

Ever heard of a magical place called the library?

Movies are easily found online for free.

4 It Doesn't Take as Long to Decide if You Want to Continue Watching it or Not

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?

Because you never stop reading a book. It's too good for that.

It takes days to read a book but only a hour to two hours to watch a movie

5 You Don't Have to Try and Visualize The Story

Visualizing the story is the best part of a book, honestly in my experience people who read books have a broader imagination.

visualizing is bad
it's like I always think of the wrong thing

It's NOT harder to imagine in books. If a person finds it harder to visualize in books, then they don't have any imagination.

This is where imagination comes in. If you don't have such a thing, you're better off with the movies.

6 They Are Easier to Understand

Because you get different movies ever day and there are entertaining then books

That's why you're smarter if you read, not if you watch.

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.

Real men read books

7 They Don't Take up As Much Time

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.

And your point is?

The best part is reading slowly and being excited about what jappens next.

8 They Are More Appealing

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.

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

books are boring

9 You Can Be Any Age to Watch A Movie

Yeah sure, you can be six years old and watch Deadpool, that surely is allowed...

I am 9 yrs old, do you think I would watch an MA or R rated movie?
CERTAINLY NOT! What are you people's thinking in that tiny brain of yours

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.

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...

10 They Can Incorporate the Best of So Many Art Forms to Make a Masterpiece That Can't Be Reduced to Words Alone

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.

Anything can be reduced to words. Or, rather, increased, to words.

11 Less Reading

Mic drop

that is all it matters



12 Books are Weird

Books are no where close to weird

Books are the best, this website is wrong

Books don't have much words to explain

yer they r

13 You Can Eat While Watching a Movie

You can eat with books, I do it everyday...

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...

I eat while reading books

And you can do that when reading too (even though I don't eat while reading)!

14 Books are Sometimes Too Detailed and Just Go on and on About This One Little Thing Forever.

Yes, if you're reading a realistic novel it is supposed to have lots of details.

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!

Both good and bad

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.

15 Movies Have Music and Books Don't

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.

Both books and movies deserve your full attention. To separate a part of you brain to listen to music while reading is unacceptable.

Innacurate. I read one Beast Quest book very recently and then this prison music wouldn't stop get out of my imagination.

16 You Can Watch a Movie with Your Family and Friends

nobody discuss about ‘Who Killed The Mockingbird'
while everyone talks about marvel dc

It's an amazing social experience. With books, you only have to read them alone.

That is so wright

You can share the the moment with people, so that is nice!

17 Books are Just Dull Printed Words on Paper

And movies are just random people acting in random eviroments...

What do you think scripts are?

That's wright


18 They are Good for People with a Disability

People will say that they can just listen to audio books but what about the people withADHD

19 Books are a Waste of Paper

Think about how much resources movies can use and movies have scripts

There is something called e-books

Books are wasting our oxygen!

Save the enviromnet

20 Books Take Longer to Read

It's great, isn't it? It makes it more exciting and interesting because you can choose your own pace.

Books like "Harry Potter" takes you 3 to 4 weeks to finish while the movie takes you 3 to 4 hours to finish.

Stop wasting time reading a book just watch a movie for 2-3 then get back to work if you have any

But small books take like 2 mins and movies take 2 hrs😂😂

21 Books Get Boring Once You've Read Them Over Again

Depends on the book. Beast Quest isn't like that. And some movies get boring when you watch them over and over again as well so...

23 Movies Have Better Connections

Depends on the person

With movies, you can usually have a better connection due to the fact that you can visualize it easier and the stroys they teel and things they say can trigger parts of your brain to remember your past and bring back memories. with a book, you are more focused so you might miss it.

24 If We Read Books, Our Eyes Becomes Dull and We Feel Sleepy

Well better than having your eyes itching

but why

25 You Don't Have to Flip the Page

Again, there's e-books

Hell yeah
