18. Read a book that was adapted into a movie, then watch the movie. Debate which is better. The Martian (★★★★★) I was expecting to be bored by the book, but surprisingly wasn't. It turns out, though, that I found the film-ified content a little bit boring. I was happy that it stayed mostly true to the book. I wasn't happy that an Indian character was turned into a half-Indian character, despite the fact that I like the actor who played him. Overall, I thought the film was decent, but the book was better.
