Books or Films?

Just had a ridiculously long conversation/debate over which is better, books or film versions of books. I find it hard to see how people can argue that by putting a book onto film it can ever make it better. If you've read a book as it should be read then how can someone elses interpretation of it surpass your own imagination and understanding of it?

I'm interested in peoples opinions on this, and expecially if people can suggest and films that they think are better than the books they come from.
