I find it hard to get the point of novelising a movie that's based on a novel...
Well, if it's something like.....The Godfather, where the movie is superior to the book, then it's possible the movie novelization could be superior to the original as well.
IMHO the movie is the best thing ever comitted to celuloid - a perfect storm of direction, script, cast, cinematography and score, but the book is also superb. Just how could a novelisation improve on the novel, especially when almost all of the film is in the book ?

You'd just be leaving loads out...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
