The Glass Castle was a really big hit, selling almost three million copies and spending 261 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list. The memoir 's highly anticipated film adaptation came out on August 11. While the film preserves key themes from the memoir, many aspects of Jeannette 's journey from the Walls family to Park Avenue are shifted around to fit a different, cleaner narrative. Fans of the memoir might leave the theater wondering if they remembered the book incorrectly, The Glass Castle movie is a less sentimental and sanitized version of the shocking book. Here are the main differences between the cinematic Walls family, and the one that Jeannette Walls initially told us about in her memoir.
Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
Troy Ross Comp 1 9/22/2014 Rocky “Life is not about how hard of a hit you can give… it’s about how many you can take and still keep going.” This is one of Sylvester’s Stallone quotes from the movie Rocky. One of the greatest movies of all time. A lot of research went into this paper. The challenges Sylvester Stallone faced to produce Rocky presented every obstacle, had an all-star cast, and was the greatest underdog story ever told. Stallone was and actor and screen writer, who wrote the screen play for Rocky in three days.
The movie Troy, from Hollywood has been one of the greatest Hollywood movie ever made, it was nominated for more than 10 awards and got into the “Best of Warner Bros- 50 Film Collection”. In addition, it made approximately $497 million worldwide. It was one of the most successful films ever made.

This allowed “The Grinch” to become the second highest-grossing holiday film of all time just behind the well-known film “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”. It went on to win an Academy Award for Best Makeup and was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture in regards to Jim
With loads of sarcasm from the ex-couple, this movie is sure to be a good one for the family. Casting is excellent, with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in the top roles. Perhaps the funniest, certainly the fastest talkie comedy ever made. This brilliant reworking of the classic newspaper play The Front Page from director Howard Hawks is the fastest-talking comedy in the history of Hollywood and the perfect vehicle for Cary Grant - never better - and Rosalind Russell - never tougher. Limited for most of the time to two sets, the film 's great strength is the interplay between the two leads, who play former spouses having a tough time remaining apart.
His popularity fluctuated but most of his most popular works were not like in the 20’s but went through a renascence and rose to an American Icon 50 Years past his time. A great example would be with his most famous novel: “The Great Gatsby”. This book is one of the most assigned books in American high schools and is one of the most read books from the 1920’s and “Fitzgerald knew that Gatsby was good, but reviews were lukewarm and sales were extremely disappointing”(Fitzgerald 3) this is proof that he is much more popular today than in the 1920’s. he had other works that came out throughout his life that were not regarded as even in his top 10 books but as time went to he had a renascence and they skyrocketed. His book “tender is the night” was not received well by critics when it came out but after his death it was re categorized as an “American
While the bestselling book ‘Kite Runner’ was a huge hit and an ongoing success, the film speaks a completely different story. The largely awaited ‘Kite Runner’ film hit the public like a ton of bricks. Some enjoyed it down to the last second. However, this movie was largely hyped up, and the quite extravagant anticipations from some so called ‘movie experts’ created an even larger bitter aftertaste after watching this movie. The movie was not necessarily bad; however I was quite displeased with the lack in detail which the book had strived in.
Now a lot of people know the Great Gatsby as a novel of the 1920’s and one of the best of it’s time but how accurate is it in that of it’s placement in age.Now people believe the 1920’s was one of the best ages ever in the U.S and “The Great Gatsby” gives people a look into that but does “The Great Gatsby” really show the historic point of 1920’s.There are 2 authors F. Scott Fitzgerald the author of “The Great Gatsby” and Frederick Lewis Allen who wrote “Only Yesterday” we’ll be comparing Allen’s facts on the 1920’s and Fitzgerald’s aspect of the 1920’s.We’ll be address 3 points in the 1920’s Disillusionment, Rise of New Money, and Business V.S God and compare a book of fiction and a book of facts and prove the question “Does the Great Gatsby reflect America in the 1920’s”.So what I’m explain is I believe that the Great Gatsby reflects America in the 1920’s.
He was only able to get 30 thousand dollars out of the lawsuit. Although, the movie turned out great the lawsuit didn’t end so well for Salamo Arouch’s plaintiff. The fact that Salamo Arouch could have survived the holocaust, have a movie made about him, and have fought for over 208 fights is extraordinary. This man has left a mark in the history books. Hopefully more people will see that mark and notice his importance.
This is my writing assignment comparing The Outsiders movie and book. My favorite quote was“Stay gold Ponyboy” which means Do not go tuff and stay like yourself because you are once in a lifetime.My opinion of both the movie and the book are pretty good.The book was only a little better because it was longer and it had more parts on the other hand the movie you can hear and see more and feel more when you can actually picture it.While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the Movie was more effective in telling the story.
