Well not necessarily although it can possibly be both. Maybe there is a better book that has not been turned into a movie, or maybe the movie is better (it isn't, but then again, it could've been.)
But both movie and book are pretty good as movies and books go. Also, some of Dr. Sagan's non-fiction work is quite good as well.
