Goodfellas was better than Henry Hill's autobiography "Wiseguys"

Also I enjoyed There Will Be Blood more than "Oil!"
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

The film One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest surpasses the book.

I preferred the movie version of Lion King to the subsequent Lion King coloring book.

I'd have to disagree. The delicacy with which the lines to draw in were designed far surpassed the movie's artistic appeal.

Aw HELLLLL NO

The book had a ton of fantastic imagery that the film just couldn't possibly reproduce. The movie did have Jack Nicholson, but sometimes (rarely) that's just not enough.

Speaking of which, what's the opinion on The Shining? I've never read the book but I saw both the original film and the 2000-ish miniseries.

Movie and book are both awesome but both pale in comparison to the Simpsons episode.

I watched that earlier today and I was thinking about it so I accidentally typed 'Shinning' the first time and had to edit it
