Yup, the movie is much better. The linked article in the above gives some examples of the reasons why.
Are you allowed to use your own article as evidence proving your own argument? Seems a little iffy
Reminds me of being invited to dinner—20 years ago—by a former Dean of Foreign Languages at a university in China. He was into cross-cultural studies, in particular between Chinese and English. During the conversation after dinner he said something about what he saw as a particular difference between the two, but which was absolutely untrue of English. I said very politely, "Professor, I really don't think that is true." To which he replied, "Of course it's true; it says so in my book!"
Why did he believe it? Because he had written all the "English" examples himself … to me as a native English speaker they were clear "Chinglish"!
I promptly dropped the subject.
