Walter Mitty wanted a happy life and not a sad one. It showed what Walter wanted to happen in his future and what he wanted to become. It makes the story more interesting to see it in a movie instead of just reading it and picturing it in your head. I think that a lot of people will think that the movie is better than the book just because it has more to tell about, and it shows more of what is happening. The movie
Have you ever read a book, and thought this would be a wonderful movie? Well, that’s not always the case due to when someone watches a movie that’s based on a book, nine times out of ten they come home disappointed. Although, in certain cases, the book and the movie come close to being the same. The crucible play and movie are fairly similar in numerous aspects and one could watch the movie and understand the main points of the play. When deciding between books and movies, picking the book is better because books retain more detail in the dialogue and setting, and reading the book can give one a valuable understanding of the message in the story.
The book has more eventful scenes, some scenes more valuable than others. I feel like students will find more things to connect to in real life situations from reading the book than viewing the movie. “There are a million ways for the movie to go wrong” (The Atlantic). That 's why i believe movie makers should really pay attention to details in the book and incorporate it into the movie to make it more successful. I absolutely love the book.
“The Sponsors of literacy” by Deborah Brandt could be easily related to Malcolm’s story except for the fact that he didn’t have your average literary sponsor. Malcolm’s story closely follows Dora Lopez’s in their quest for self-education. They both realized the struggle of being illiterate and not being able to communicate their thoughts. They both used books and correspondence to learn conversational discourse while practicing their reading and writing. He used the tools he could acquire behind bars to create a literary sponsor from a dictionary.
They do this because they want to make it better. Also if viewers saw the movie they want to see how to book differs. Or if readers read the book first they would want to see how the filmmakers made the characters or changed the book. When a director tweaks a movie in some cases it turns out better than the book. The Raisin in the Sun, Jurassic Park, and Percy Jackson they all turned into great movies that viewers loved more than the books.
For instance the writer’s reading habits were changed, because his job requires him to obtain information to present. When the information became more readily available, it was easy for him to skim and pick out what he wanted to use in his papers instead of only having a select few of informational sources to use. Although the internet has led to more “lazy” readers, the extent to which it has affected people is not as big as some may think. Nicholas Carr in “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” presents an argument that the internet is continually making more people alter their reading habits. However, the extent that the internet influences people’s lives can only be understood from those
The purpose of books is to provide true meaning and reality in the lives of people who do not know a similar truth. Computers and television distract people from the true meanings of things. A movie or a TV show is so much easier to watch, and people would rather stare at a screen of fiction, than reading a book, and finding meaning and knowledge. People cannot find that kind of knowledge from television, and if there was a movie that had a real, meaningful theme, it could never be the same as reading a book. Although technology may be easy and convenient, it is not smart to let it take over our lives.
(such as the huge iron throne) Lastly books have the advantage of being made most of the time by one person. Hollywood blockbusters contain sometimes thousands of crew members this can lead to disorganization and change the direction of a film. Books however are mostly limited to the author and the publisher leaving less room for the vision to get tainted. To conclude books have many advantages as a medium compared to films and
Charpentier strongly supports his opinion on why television shows are better than movies with multiple reasons why. Television shows have better character development, are able to have multiple sub plots and leave room for space and time between each episode. In the end Charpentier believes “… television will likely fade away far earlier than movies.” (Charpentier 313). Although he prefers television over film, the way we watch television is changing. On the bright side new visual art forms are on the rise, and hopefully one day television shows and movies will find their selves working together.
Dr. Seuss is quoted with saying, “The more that you read, the more things that you know. The more that you learn, the more places you go.” The information a reader reads can affect them in both positive and negative ways. Counterclaim: For this reason, library chairmen and executives ban certain books from being placed on their shelves. However, this action takes away the responsibility of readers to select a good book. Claim: Furthermore, books should not be censored and readers should be able to choose how to read and how to learn Understandably, some books may be inappropriate for certain individuals to read.
The human brain does not treat this data seriously because those data did not give user strong impression when it receives it, which causes readers losing their patience while reading the unimportant information. People used to go through a lot of reading to get information that they wanted, they read, they analyze, they think, but now search engines quickly provided relevant information for them. Some people think that search engines provide a fast way for people to get information and it will make everything more convenient. This idea is wrong because even though people obtain information more easily, they are getting too much information, more than they expect. There is are a lot of sources of information.
I enjoyed the movie better than the book. It included just the right amount of action scenes, description words, and details from the story. The story was amazing but I like seeing things more than reading them. I usually like the movies better than the book. If I didn 't have the book I still think that I would be able to follow along with the movie and know what is going on.
The first reason is because the book is may be lengthy to some and not lengthy to others. For me, the book went by relatively quick. For readers who enjoyed the book, there is good news due to the book being a part of a series. Meaning that the fun does not have to end at just Wild Seed. Some of the themes within may only affect women or men such as gendered identities or people of color such as colonialism or race, but it is a read that can educate many.
Historian Daniel J. Boorstin once said, “Technology is so much fun, but we can drown in our technology. The fog of information can drive out knowledge”. Boorstin believes that technology is fun and is helpful to society, but technology can be overused and can take over our knowledge, which can take over our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Nowadays most people prefer reading online rather than reading a print book, which has changed our society today in numerous helpful, yet hazardous ways. Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451 interprets what our society will be later on due to the overuse of technology, and the lack of reading print books.
Digital technology has completely changed the world for the good and the bad. The disadvantage that technology has brought and will bring in the future is that people will rely on it too much. Books are becoming non-existent, people are not communicating face to face, we are no longer using paper and pencils, and social media is taking over the world. However, it is up to the adults to monitor and limit the use of computers, T.V., mobile phones and video games. The advantages to technology is important dealing with education because it can promote new and fun ways someone to learn and easier access to researching
