When the first Harry Potter movie first came out, I had never read the books. Looking back, that may be one reason I enjoyed the first movie, but became more critical of the rest. I just tend to enjoy movies more if I watch them first, then read the book second.
Catching Fire premieres today, and I’m excited to see it. I’ve yet to finish the book, and while I initially thought I should finish it before I go, my gut feeling tells me to see the movie first so I can enjoy the book more. It’s interesting to gain more insight when reading the book afterwards, rather than get frustrated at the lack of it in a condensed movie.
How about you: movie first, or book first? Which gives you the most enjoyment out of both?
