After reading The Perfect Storm, by Sebastian Junger, I have concluded that the book kept my attention throughout, but I believe it could have improved. The storyline is scattered among many different stories, all centered around the meteorological nightmare of October of 1991. The setting, time, and place quickly change from story to story as most end in human lives being slain by the storm. I believe the movie is structured better, as it is centered around only one story, the story of a Gloucester, Massachusetts fishing crew on the Andrea Gail. I do not think the author had the experience of these men, whom he wrote about to remember and respect. In my opinion, this book could have been structured better, in more of an organized manner. Overall, I believe multiple improvements could have been made to this book.
The Ender’s Game book provided more detail of Ender’s siblings. In the text, we learned more about the attitudes and views of Peter and Valentine before he was sent off to Battle School. Peter always thought he should be the one going to fight off the buggers, not Andrew “Ender”. Valentine and Peter would always call him “Third”. Also, the book provided the alter egos Demosthenes and Locke. It was completely cut out of the movie. It would add a political and controversial viewpoint
Would you read a book with themes such as racism, innocence, poverty, discrimination, and putting the past behind you? How about watch a movie with these same scenes? To Kill a Mockingbird is a story set in the 1930's, and written in 1960. Likewise, a movie was made about this book, both having the themes listed. With this, details about these themes can sometimes be left out when making a movie about a book. Because of this, the novel best illustrates the themes Harper Lee advocated because of the exclusion of details in the movie, and decrease in significance of parts.
In the film Ender’s Game, his timeline as an individual is not even close to the novel, in the book Ender ages at a slower rate, when we first meet ender he is six years old and we witness his maturity first hand whereas in the movie when we are introduced to Ender he is already almost a teenager. Likability is greater in the novel because we got to witness Ender mature, not so much in the movie. Furthermore, the movie strays away from Demosthenes and Locke, they play a foundational role in the novel, leaving this in the movie would have given more
I agree that the movie was better. However, I don 't agree that the novel wasn 't good. The novel would have no strikes against it if it weren 't for that thing with Hooper and Ellen Brody, in my honest opinion. I will say that I think the movie Patriot Games is much better than the novel because the movie has a much better ending and the line that comes from Jack Ryan, "I will ****ing destroy you. I will make it my mission in
Although the movie is based off the book, Call of the Wild as a book is very different from the movie. There are multiple reasons for this to occur, but it happens all the time with book/movie crossovers. In the following paragraphs we will be discussing just some of the differences between the call of the wild book and the call of the wild movie. Not to mention it was published in 1903 so there were multiple things that the movie couldn’t have or express. John Thornton may have been important to the book, but he was the nearly movie’s main focus.
The Shawshank Redemption came out in 1994 with the cast that includes Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins. The Director and Screenwriter is Frank Darabont and the author inspiration was from Steven King. Awards given Morgan Freeman Best Actor and Frank Darabont who received the Best Adapted Screenplay award, the Studio Crystal Heart Award, and Best Foreign Language Film, and Feature Film Category, Literary Award Screenplay, USC Scripter Award Stephen King (author) Frank Darabont (screenwriter). The Shawshank Redemption has many great scenes that make it great but when Andy Dufresne escapes is when most of the movie elements and emotions come into play.
In Ender’s Game, Colonel Graff states, “With Ender, we have to strike a delicate balance. Isolate him enough that he remains creative-otherwise he’ll adopt the system here and we’ll lose him. At the same time, we need to make sure he keeps a strong ability to lead.”Graff is talking about his plans for Ender and how to make the perfect commander. This was the major story line throughout the novel. Ender’s Game takes place during a time of war with an alien species called the Buggers. Mankind’s only hope at destroying the enemy lies in the hands of a child named Ender Wiggin. Ender must endure brutal training and preparation in order to defeat the Buggers when the time comes. This wonderful story is told in both book and movie form. However,
The conversations between Colonel Graff and Major Anderson about Ender’s progress and skills were important to the story of his development as a warrior and leader. In the book those conversations were at the beginning of each chapter and in the movie they were at appropriate places in the action, so both worked well.
Ender’s game movie and the book had crucial elements that made or break the story. One of these elements was
No book to movie adaption has ever been described as perfect and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is no exception. Almost every character changed at some point from the book to the movie, whether in regards to personality, physical appearance, or their given amount of screen time. The directors changed the plot noticeably adding in romances and special effects while removing other concepts that failed to translate well on the big screen. Most obviously the use of detail and description isn’t there in the movie. While most readers appreciated Ender’s game for its use of Ender’s perspective thus allowing them to see what he saw, the movie fails to describe that to its audience. The movie captured the action elements of Ender’s Game using Hollywood
In 2009, Kathryn Stockett wrote a book called “The Help” that was turned into a movie in by director Tate Taylor. The Help is about a young Caucasian woman named Miss Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan who has a friendship with African-American maids Abilene Clark and Minnie Jackson, during the Civil Rights Era of the early 1960s in Jackson, Mississippi. Miss Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan is an aspiring writer who decides to write a book on what it is like to be an African-American maid working in a racist environment with Caucasian families. However, the book is different from the movie due to the characters storyline. During my reading of this book and watching the movie I’ve noticed important lines in the book that was left out in the movie.
As Ender takes his last breath Peter, his brother, takes his hands off Ender’s neck. As Ender grows up, he slowly realizes that he’s chosen to help the International Fleet (I.F.) destroy the buggers, an alien species threatening all the humans. Will he succeed? The book does a better job showing Ender’s quest in saving human life.
I believe exploring the Holocaust is all about keeping the memory alive. This movie helped keep the memory of the Holocaust alive because it was such an impact to the life behind the scenes and of the who help protect the jews. We use these memories of Holocaust to prevent from repeating these mistakes in the future. At first everybody thought Hitler being inpower was a great idea but later they found out that it was it was a horrible desicion and when the war was finally over they were happy to see the US troops on the ground. Keeping the memory alive is all about remembering from the past and one thing for sure is by doing this project I have remembered from the past. I learned alot from doing the project like how during the Holocaust in the situation the past events which has led me to believe that we have grown from then.
Let’s address the elephant in the room. This is a movie that has been in the making for decades the two greatest heroes of the DC comics universe together in a movie. There were high expectations when the movie was announced. This expectancy of the legion of fans across the globe, elevated this movie high on a pedestal. From the first decisions of the casting, the portions of the script known and the movie itself. There was harsh criticism. It is hard to please everybody and it is even harder to send a foundation for a stream of movies to come. Warner studios realized too late that they owned the rights to a mine of gold that could produce billions of dollars. Marvel was smarter and gave them a run for their money, they are ahead of the game
