Or to put it in a Star Trek context, just because The Next Generation made Diane Duanne's Rihannsu books inaccurate doesn't mean you can't still enjoy them as an alternate history of the Romulans.
You can, i won't read them.

Film always trumps print.
Depends on the book.The Godfather followed the book closely. War and Peace will be more famous then any movie anybody made based on the book.
Let's amend that: Film always trumps print--when it comes to tie-in novels. I doubt that Fer was claiming that movies based on classic novels trump the original books. But when you have books based on movies and TV shows . . . well, yeah, the movies and TV shows set the rules.
Yes, thank you. That's exactly what I meant. Obviously, when a film is an adaptation of a book, it's a different story.
