Do u prefer the movie or the book
hmmm I love this question and I’m honestly not sure. The movie is so iconic but, of course, the book has more detail. I feel like a lot of the misconceptions and just… bad ideas stem from the movie, though.
I’m always coming across blogs (generally newer ones) that hate the Socs and all greasers are poor, misunderstood creatures and I think the movie didn’t really show that “things are rough all over” part. A lot of ideas that annoy the shit out of me come from the movie, I feel like. The movie was great but I don’t think it went as deep as it could have (which is cool w me bc after all it’s like a fun little friendship movie whatever but)
I could keep going with my issues with the movie so just request if you want them. I’ll say I prefer the book.
