Personally, I'd watch the movie first. But that's the way I always approach it when I find a movie/novel-combo in which I'm interested. As you mention, movies are generally the weaker of the two, and I find if I watch the movie first, I'm more apt to enjoy the movie on its own merits since I'm not comparing it to my preconceived notions of what it should be.
