The book ,”The Outsider”, has some differences from the novel and the film. For example, when Randy(a soc) was talking to Ponyboy Curtis in the novel, Randy said that he was going to load up his mustang and head south; in the film Randy didn’t say this. These differences are not hard to tell sometimes, or they are obvious. Dallas Winston robbing a store, Sodapop Curtis less developed, the car accident, and Dallis chasing kids. Here are some differences in the novel and movie.
Self-reflexivity is employed in Romeo + Juliet by immediately drawing attention to the fact that the film is represented as a news report rather than the original format of a Shakespearean play. The Sycamore Grove beach where we meet Romeo has a broken down theatre that is reminiscent of The Globe theatre where the original Romeo and Juliet was performed. This incorporation of a theatre, the use of title cards and symbols such as theatre masks allow the audience to be reminded that the construct is not the original but a re-adaptation of a Shakespearean play. Moulin Rouge begins with the introduction of a red curtain and conductor; the viewer is positioned as an audience member, which makes the audience conscious that they are watching a ‘play’ or work of
What would you do if you lived in a controlled community where you have no choices? I will be writing about The Giver and the Truman Show, comparing and contrasting both. First the characters or symbols, then the setting. The Truman Show is a movie inside a movie. The Giver is about a controlled community but a boy named Jonas soon becomes the Receiver and he learns the truth and tries to run away.
Clayton has the ability to portray ambiguity in many ways throughout the movie, such as with cinematic effects. James has less of an opportunity to demonstrate obscurity through his writing and readers are responsible for using their imagination to decipher the ambiguity. In film version, the obscurity is much clearer because Clayton has the ability to dictate many aspects of the film including character facial expression, setting, sound, and many more. James can only portray a sense of obscurity through his writing and by reader
In the movie, Monty Python the Quest for the Holy Grail, themes of chivalry are mocked and used to create the overall theme of the movie. This essay is to examine and compare the themes of chivalry, knightly code, courtly love, role of religion, and good vs evil. Most of these mentioned themes are either mocked or used to develop the plot or both. The theme of crusades or religious pilgrimages is very prominent in this time period we are studying.
The clip belongs to the movie The Hustler (Robert Rossen, 1961) an adult story about life and love, greed, and self-destruction of isolated characters but also a story about conscience and redemption. The clip reproduces the first meeting about Eddie (Paul Newman) and Sarah (Piper Laurie), starting the romantic part of the film. The director uses both widescreen and black and white to produce a realistic atmosphere and highlight the isolation of the characters in their relationship. This essay analyzes the use of those devices in three different moments of the clip anticipating the dénouement of the plot through the depiction of the characters.

Agatha Christie is contributing to the mood by creating a scene similar to a storm scene in a movie- the audience is wary about what is going on. They are forced to predict what will happen in the future using the mood that is portrayed by the author in this segment of the chapter. By using suggestive words to describe the setting, the author is able to make a movie in the readers’ heads, setting the mood and affecting their thoughts and
I think the movie version is better than the book. The reason for this is because the movie has a lot more character than the book does. You get to see what the characters look like, while the book doesn’t give a good description of the people in the book at all. You can feel the mood better in the movie because of all of the extra things, like the lightning and fog, to capture the mood. Some similarities I found in both the movie and the book is that Scrooge says, “Bah! Hummbug.”.
The narration in the movie can be described as circular narrative as the ending and beginning when merged complete the timeline of the movie(1). This narrative structure is rather unconventional and reminds the audience at multiple instances that this is not real life and they are watching a movie. One of these instances include Mia (Uma Thurman) drawing a rectangle on screen while talking to Vincent (John Travolta) in car in front of Jack Rabbit Slim’s. The film includes multiple clues which link its narration style to Post Modernism. To understand this linkage, firstly Post Modernism should be described.
There are many productions of Hamlet, but the two most popular are the 2009 film featuring David Tennant and the 1996 film featuring Kenneth Branagh. Overall, I believe that Hamlet was portrayed better in the movie with Kenneth Branagh, rather than the movie featuring David Tennant. One of the most significant scenes of the play is Act V Scene 2, where Claudius dies. In the Kenneth Branagh film, the costumes in this scene are very fitting of the time period of when Hamlet was alive. The men were mostly wearing tight pants with trousers and patterned jackets, while the women were all wearing colorful, poofy dresses.
The best portrayal of Hamlet’s “To Be, Or Not To Be” soliloquy is the Kenneth Branagh interpretation of the scene because, in my opinion, Branagh does the best to demonstrate Hamlet’s feelings of madness through his tone and body language. Even though Branagh’s speech is quite slow, and in my opinion too slow, the speed at which he is speaking allows him to place more emphasis on the topics that drive Hamlet insane, such as “Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay…” The slow listings of these flaws Hamlet sees in today’s world places emphasis on each and every one, as well as an emphasis on the total flaws themselves. Branagh also does an excellent job of demonstrating Hamlet’s madness
