We have all gone to a movie and left thinking, 'That was nothing like the book!' Or we have been inspired to read a book after watching the movie. Again being disappointed the book was so different. For me, I'd prefer to see the movie first. I tend to be over critical about stories I've read that have been butchered by Hollywood. It is better not knowing. Makes a movie more enjoyable that way. Best Example of this for me was the Percy Jackson books and movies. I may have been able to enjoy the movies if I had not read the books. The movies are just all over the place as if the movie writers 6 year old child told the story to parents after reading and not understanding.
