Movies are good, but…

December 19, 2010

There are some books that even the best-made movies can’t really capture.

I’m not one of those who always goes around saying, “But the book was better!”, because I don’t always think that’s true. I’ve only read two Cormac McCarthy novels (so far), and seen those two movies–The Road and All the Pretty Horses–but there’s something about the internal voices of the novels that the movies, even as well done as these are, can’t capture.

A voice-over just isn’t the same.
