I enjoy reading books that also have a movie or books that movies were based on just to compare. Pretty much every time the books are better, but every now and then the movie will take a different twist to the book and it works better. I just finished "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and I'm dying to see the movie July 15. The Harry Potter movies do a really good job in keeping with the spirit of the book, they don't do a lot of ad lib.
I have read all the Twilight books and so far the movies have not been impressive. I was thoroughly dissapointed with Eclipse because they changed a lot of my favorite parts of the book or left out a lot of scenes that I was waiting to see on the big screen.
Recently I also watched "Water for Elephants" I read that book sometime last year and liked it. I really liked the movie version, I think it did the book justice, even though it didn't really go into the depth of some of the relationships of the characters, it still made sense.
