Now we all know the book is pretty much all the time better than the movie. Which is why sometimes I wont read the book until I’ve seen the movie. However, I don’t always believe this is true. What I try to do, is separate the two. I tell myself before I see the movie that this is not the book, it’s a completely separate thing. Sometimes when I look at the new covers, I feel it doesn’t really let you use your imagination. It almost feels like when you see the movie character on the cover, that’s it…That’s the character. That’s it.
I do dislike it though when they decide to “update” anything really. Take Star Wars for a good example, when they decided to make 1,2 & 3 and they changed the original ending of number 6 and put Hayden Christensen at the end instead of the “original” Darth Vader, Sebastian Shaw (I say “original” because there were about 3 people who played the original Darth Vader). Now ALL the new dvds and blurays have Hayden Christensen at the end…Even though he didn’t “die” young…It’s just a silly concept, which makes no sense. Darth Vader died an older man, not a young one. They didn’t change Obi-Wan, did they?
