    Picked up Spiderman 3...and wow so much better than the film. I wonder if Hulk and IronMan would be any better?

    If by movie novelization you mean have i read the source? Yes :mamoru:

    If you mean the books rewritten from the scripts, then, not really. Last one i read was the Star Wars Ep.3 one and it left a sour taste in my mouth.

    I read the novelization of Batman Forever before I saw the movie. The book had some extra detail that was probably in the screenplay but never got filmed. I think the novel was a little better than the movie...but that's not saying much.

    Funny you would mention that one in particular, because I actually enjoyed the book much more. I almost never mix books and movies, which ever version of the story I see first I stick with. I do tend to prefer reading the book to the movie, all too often sacrifices in length and content have to be made to translate to the big screen. The Star Wars Ep.3 however was based straight off the script and written by an author whose own work I enjoy a great so much that I even read his Star Wars work despite never having read any other novels based in that universe and still enjoyed it. Nothing compared to his original work imho, but still not that bad.

    True, it was better than most star wars book, but that's not really saying much... I've seen Stovers work elsewhere, but not read it so i can't really comment. However, i do have to say that there was something off about the writing style. It didn't help either that i thought the movie version was absolute shit. I guess i just didn't come prepared with a blank view =/

    Yeah I thought the movie was crap myself, the basic plot was just weak which definately lowered the quality of the book as well, but the disparity between the two was shocking at times.
