Which is better - to read the book first before the movie or vice versa?
which do you prefer/recommend?
if Im aware that there's a book/novel that isnt some sort of pulp fiction (ie harry potter) then ill make a strong effort to read the story b4hand.
it makes the movie much more interesting, i guess
was just discussing this with friends over some drinks 2nite how I enjoyed the bus ride scene on "Fight Club" whereupon the definition of what men's behavior/societal attributes is being questioned was a good central theme to Palaniuk's novel that hopefully got conveyed to those understood it

I just listed fight club in my "overrated movies" and I really couldn't get through it, after more than one attempt. I may just revisit the movie. AND the book. The book first
thanks for your response. I kinda wonder if the movie will ever be good if I read the book before, so then I struggle with which to do first.
