Book vs Film

How do you feel about film adaptations? Are the books always better? Can a film ever measure up? Should films just be considered as 'based on' a book and so the book is simply inspiration then there is no expectation to for a film to 'represent' a book? If you have seen the film, do you now not need to read the book?

Books and films are such different ways of telling a story. Both with their own strengths and weaknesses yet they are often compared so vehemently and can rouse such rage and indignation. Share your thoughts.
