The first thing we see, is that the director has changed the name of the main character with his friend. In the book, the main character is named Victor Frankenstein, but in the movie he is called Henry Frankenstein and his friend is shown as Victor Moritz. If someone read book as a first, and later saw the film, he may feel a little bit confused. This change, could take place by the fact that director wanted to soften the image of the main character, which was portrayed as an insane, desire to compare himself with the god man, the name Victor in itself sounds rather scary and very seriously, and the name Henry sounds friendly and nice for the ear.

Inspired by Walt Disney 's 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty, the 2014 release of Maleficent introduced a villain with a backstory, justifying her immoral actions and elevating representations of non-conforming gender identities. Complete with a harshly angular facial structure accentuated with bold red lips and pale complexion, Maleficent is fearsome but also mesmerizing. Not only is she breaking gender binaries, but she parades her dominance and confidence in order to ensure no one disrupts her kingdom, the Moors. Maleficent 's first prominent entrance places her standing above King Henry’s mass armed force, who are ready to invade the Moors. Through the shots of thunders and dark clouds, Maleficent stands coldly with her wings
The unfamiliarity of the cartoons in the 'Disney Renaissance” would be much more enhanced if not for the inaccuracies that the workers of Walt Disney Animation Studios have woven into the movies. This kind of approach is clearly visible in Mulan. The first that comes to mid are the demonized forms of Huns, as evil entities. On the other side of the fight are the Chinese people, portrayed as the good forces, the victims of the attack, who try to mobilize army big enough to defeat the swarm of the opposing soldiers. What causes the confict are the features of the Chinese soldiers.
Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (Ishiro Honda, 1964) 1964 was the year that Toho decided to shift the kaiju genre 's focus from adults to children, stripping the films from much of their depth and largely turning them into wrestling matches among actors with monster suits. This particularly film though, remains one of the best entries in the category, particularly due to its cast that featured Takashi Shimura, who played in Akira Kurosawa 's "Ikiru" and Eiji Okada, from Hiroshi Teshigahara 's "Woman in the Dunes". This time the plot involves Princess Selina, who is saved from an assassination attempt by police detective Shindo. The Princess also prophecies disasters to come, which after a while become true, as a meteorite that had previously crashed on Earth, is revealed to be an egg that hatches into King Ghidorah.
James Whaley is an English born director whom participated in several films for Universal studios where he eventually took up the task of directing Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel following the popular release of Dracula that same year. The success of Frankenstein was rooted in it’s genre being a horror film and the immediate success it brought to movie producers. The interpretation by Whaley is highlighted by several plot transitions which are not shown in the movie as well as certain alterations like Henry Frankenstein (Victor in the book) using a criminal brain rather than any other brain collected as implied by Shelley. Other major differences in the plot of the movie compared to the novel involves the monster Frankenstein himself and everything about the character. In the movie Frankenstein is portrayed as an impulsive monster only capable of fulfilling his most physical and animal like actions.
As one first example, the song "Scary" by Britney Spears was wrote and released in 2011. The first stanza already bring references from "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", as the singer compares her hide - and maybe wrong - wishes and desires to the story; she wants to do things she can't, just like Jekyll wanted before creating Hyde. Here is the first stanza of the
Man should never be allowed to play god, but creating life is something that has always been an enticing concept (American Scientist). In order to feed our fantasies about cloning and producing life, we turn to fiction novels to amaze, and sometimes to scare us. One of the best-known archetypes of this is Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. Hailed as the eighth most popular English novel in history (The Guardian), the classic story of a mad scientist named Dr. Victor Frankenstein has been the basis of countless movies and parodies (Romantic Circles). Though the name Frankenstein has become very well known, the original story as penned by Mary Shelley has been overwhelmed by the numerous derivatives that were published afterward in different forms of media including movies, plays, and even comic books.
Where they cut off your ear if they don’t like your face; it’s barbaric, but hey, it’s home” (Appendix 4). This is the first paragraph of the opening song in the movie Aladdin (1992), produced by Walt Disney Pictures. Admittedly, after complaints by the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (Breaux, 2010: 400), the company changed the lyrics for the home release. Nevertheless, by then, millions of people had already seen the movie in the theatres with the original lyrics.
Nonetheless, this didactic process is certainly not positive. Still, ethnic stereotypes have become a given in most Disney films; which means that not only important lessons about life, but also instructions
Released in 1992, Aladdin is the first Disney prince to have the title of the film named after him, which is a major step in the image of masculinity represented in Disney movies. The story of Aladdin continues to convey the message which was imprinted in the Beauty and the Beast about the subordinate position of physical traits over the dominant personality characteristics. The movie starts with the story about the lamp and the narrator suggests that “like many other things, it 's not what 's outside but what 's inside that matters. “ The speculated concerns about who is really the center of the story in Beauty and the Beast (Davis, 2013, 157), is now completely unambiguous. Aladdin is the only character in the movie who seeks to reveal his
Lewis is most famous for his book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This is the first out of all the Narnia books. Lewis was most inspired to write his fantasy fiction books by the refugee children who came to stay in his house during the bombings by Nazi Germany (“The Lion” 151). In this specific work, Lewis makes several different references to the bible, directly and indirectly, to make the story have more of a Christian meaning (“The Lion” 163). Characters Lucy, Aslan, and Edmund who lived during World War II in England were set to defeat the White Witch in Narnia.

The part of the book that the connection relates to is when the Evil Queen is tempting Edmund with Turkish Delight. I connected this part of the book to Matthew 4:1-11 where Jesus is in the desert and the devil is tempting him. this helped my understanding of the story because I pictured the bible story in my mind but twisted it to fit the chapters of the book. It also helped because THe part of the book I decided to make a connection to is when Lucy is trying to tell everyone that the wardrobe is there but no one believes her.
