Is there ever a time that a movie is the same as the book? Well not in The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin which the GLMS sixth grade students read and watched. But in most movies based of of books a lot of key details are left out. The students tried to figure out who murdered Sam Westing. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth noting.

Holmes is taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo for supervision. A month later, Holmes Attorneys defended his client, by saying, "Mr. Holmes suffers from a severe mental illness and was in the throes of a psychotic episode when he committed the acts that resulted in the tragic loss of life and injuries sustained by movie goers on July 20, 2012” (“Colorado Theater”, 2017). Holmes defense to his actions was because he believe the reason he killed everyone is because he was unable to control his actions because of the movie he watched. Theory of Holmes’ Case My theory of this case is to believe this case wasn’t a case of insanity because this individual clearly planned his actions. Holmes stepped out of the movie theater and returned wearing protective gear.
I attended Scientology’s dirty tricks on September 15th at the Cronkite Theater. The lecture series featured Tony Ortega as he focused on his writing and the research he used in his book. Tony Ortega’s book “The Unbreakable Miss lovely” is about the tortured life of Paulette Cooper. Before attending this event I had never heard of Paulette Cooper. I learned that Paulette Cooper’s story first begin by her barely surviving the Holocaust as a baby.
In my group 's project, I was tasked with researching information on Willis Richarson in the field of Theatre and film as well as providing behind the scene support. For example, I provided help in the montage scene by pushing joey, who was sitting on a rolling chair, forward multiple times. I also held an enormous white board loaded with information to aid the actors, Joey and Emily, in remembering key facts about the Harlem Renaissance, which has been collected from our research. Even though I appear in the final product, it 's minimal because I lack the acting skills and charisma shown by Joey, Emily and Connor; it was my choice as I didn 't want to hinder the final product. I hoped my other skills like art and prop making would come in
For example, the book shows what Brian is seeing and reacting during the pilot’s heart attack. This is an example of imagery. Rather in the movie, Brian hardly even reacts during this event in the beginning of the story. Yes Brian tries to help, but that’s basiclly it. Also, the author explains what Brian is thinking, feeling, and interacting during the ride.
Justice Clarence Thomas has explained his silence in several interviews. I had researched this question once before, because I had wondered if there was a public resentment from his treatment at his confirmation hearing. The Justice explained it as a personality trait of being an introvert. In one of there interviews, he even recommends Susan Cain 's book, Quiet. I highly recommend anyone of her books.

When I took this Big Five Inventory (BFI) I learned some things about myself that I did not know. I scored a 20 in extraversion, 24 in agreeableness, 19 in conscientiousness, 25 in neuroticism, and 27 in openness. I took the test before I read the book so I had no idea what these numbers meant. As I read the book, I then started to understand and agreed with the scores that I received. From the different personality tests that I have taken in the past, I know that I am an introvert.
A director named Baz Luhrmann turned The Great Gatsby into a film. By casting the right actors to portray the characters, Luhrmann effectively recreated the book on screen. The movie opens differently than the book, with Nick in the office of a therapist. Although this differs from the book, it puts a twist on the movie. After the events Nick went through, it is understandable that he needs to talk about everything that happened.
By knowing the new movie by heart, the older film was painfully long and not played in the same order as the current Gatsby or book. The original film skipped around and extended parts not seen before to movie watchers. It focused on the suicide more than the killing of Myrtle. Another big part of the story line is Nick narrates the story through his journal as in he is writing this novel. Within both moves, Gatsby is portrayed the same.
