First detail being left out was the appearance or even mention of the character Dan Cody an influential character in Gatsby's life. Also, the owl-eyes guys in the library nick encounters is not shown in the movie. Other things such as Tom and Myrtle's appearances were skewed in the movie. Dan Cody one of the most influential if not the most influential person to Gatsby is left out. The book portrays him as a father figure teaching gatsby everything he knows.
Due to these slight interruptions, the points of high suspense were reduced throughout the film while we had continuous suspense in the short story. The film, like the short story, was portrayed from a limited setting but many people wouldn't expect this from a movie so, it may have seemed more like a play rather than an actual
Throw in a dozen “real world issues” with bland characters and there is a best seller. Books that chose to cover deep or troubling issues are often seen as a sacred text for daring to go further than boring and clichéd themes like follow your heart or never give up. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher received a ton of praise after the Netflix adaptation of it came out. People loved how it took the time to discuss teen suicide, but many hated how the aftermath of the suicide was recklessly handled. TV shows such as the CW’s Riverdale are notorious for being overly melodramatic and pointlessly complicated simply for the sake of drama.
Alexa Colunga Ms. Tijerina English 3 1301 10/26/2014 As a sayings goes, the book is better than the movie. Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya is a story based on a young boy becoming aware of his internal conflicts. In the filmthere were particular things that were different from the book like the dialogue and events; however, the similarities between the story and film were the fact that it followed all the death events that surrounded Antonio.
If not, cut. On a smaller note, Charles is introduced twice. Avoid camera shots if this is a spec script. In summary, while the characters feel intriguing, the plot isn’t clear enough yet to understand what the story is about, as the goal isn’t yet defined, and the direction is unclear.
Potentially due to their age, they don’t understand the severity of their predicament. Although the book and movie versions of the Lord of the Flies have both similarities and differences, I prefered the book over the movie because William Golding’s them The foremost similarity between the novel and the movie adaptation was themes and messages that readers were intended to learn. In other words, the movie continued using the author 's subtle way of reinforcing his themes. For example, near the beginning of the novel the main protagonist of the novel, Ralph, called a meeting by using a conch shell as a horn.
The discussion about the stolen radio was not entirely easy to understand due to the large time gap between the program airing and the current time. I t believe it was possible to listen for non-verbal communication to an extent, as some things can be imagined due to the context of the language. I imagined the detectives giving each other looks and nods from the way the story was told and the events taking place. After a shaky start, I enjoyed the program for the most part. It was not the most original story but I did feel moments of surprise.
When I first read the story, it was very slow. The way it started in the first chapter did not really catch my attention, and it is also because I am not into war stories. Usually when I read books, it would immediately catch my attention, in which this book has not. Another key factor that I did not like about this book is that there should be more fighting scenes, or more experiences. A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description.
It’s a really good book to read, because it will change the view that we have as citizens, living us with many questions without answer for the
And back to the writing in general - poor, at best. I couldn 't take the writing seriously, because it seemed choppy and almost conversational, but not a good kind of conversational. Like a conversational with someone that isn 't telling the story well. It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written. I hate saying things like this, but when it becomes that big of an issue for me I have to point it out.
What is violence? Violence is, as described by Google,”behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something. Strength of emotion or an unpleasant or destructive natural force. And the unlawful exercise of physical force or intimidation by the exhibition of such force.” Both 1984 by George Orwell, and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley have violence threaded throughout each novel.
What was the movie about? The movie 42 is about Jackie Robinson, the first professional african american baseball player. Jackie Robinson gets drafted to the Brooklyn Dodgers and plays for them during the 1947 season. Jackie Robinson defines all odds by not only being the first professional african american to play baseball but also by being one of the best players of the game.
Films that are based off books create a scene for the audience while bringing the words on the paper to life. They usually address the same issues as the original content, but adds additional details to stand out from the book. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a book that was transformed into a movie in 1966. The book and film discuss similar themes such as censorship, dystopian society, and propaganda, but does different work with the same story of books being destroyed in a society. This is especially true when considering how the film introduces new ideas, eliminates characters, and changes important scenes from the book.
I believe that the movie Sorry Wrong Number was better than the reading and here's why. While reading the script of the play it didn't create that good of suspense. First example is when Mrs.Stevenson called her husband but hen overheard the killers was more suspenseful.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) This was more suspenseful than the text because you can see her reaction. My second piece of evidence is Mrs.Stevenson heard the killer in the house you could see the suspense.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher)
