Do you think the novel "Raise the Titanic!" was far better than the movie?

    I do. The Titanic looked more realistic funnel-less and the book contained more plot twists and excitement that I don't think could ever be copied on film.

    I don't think they should have even made the movie, it's completely different than the book. It's not like A Night To Remember, which is very much well-adapted, almost word for word.
  2. A preferred the novel to the movie because at the very least, some of the ideas for raising the ship....had the hull been intact and in a reasonably good state of preservation.....were at least theoretically plausible.

    The movie was horrible but the musical score at least was great.

    The novel was better.
  4. The Novel was better, the pictures were better. But I still liked the movie. It was entertaining. Very few movies are better than the novels. A few exceptions for me were Gone with the Wind, The Godfather, and Logan's Run. I liked those movies better than the books.
