Books or Movie? Can't Post

I'm guessing most people are going to say Books on this one. What did you get more enjoyment out of, LOTR Books or Movie. I am not a reader and find the movies way more enjoyable, however I think part of it is because I am such a huge fan of music, and when reading books, I don't get an awesome score in my head, at least not 1/10 as good as the masters Howard Shore, John Williams, etc. Their scores just make the movies so much better & more emotional/memorable to me. Also, I am a big fan of film & great acting, cinematography, etc., that I don't envision certain newer innovative shots, angles of movement, etc., as some of these newer films have...a perfect example is some of the new innovations made in cinematography shown in the Matrix trilogy with 360 deg slow motion shots.

Anyone else enjoy the movies more than the books?
