After the events Nick went through, it is understandable that he needs to talk about everything that happened. Based off the book, the movie is extremely similar. However, the flaws exist. Some of the scenes became over the top and extravagant. The scene at Myrtle and Tom’s apartment seemed slightly overdone.
That scene showed how the Youngers worked, how they were treated and how they felt about their jobs. Moreover, in the book Mama opened her presents at their apartment, however in the movie Mama opened her presents in their new backyard at their new house. This experience showed how excited to live in a house and not an apartment.Even though there was a Green Hat in the book and in the movie. For example, in the movie when Walter was drunk and Mama went to go get him from the Green Hat the viewers got to see the how depressed Walter was when he did not get the money. In the scene when Mama stated, ”You will follow me out of here right now.” The bar was a dark and loud place, many people would agree that when you see a place in a movie dark and loud it shows depression and regret.
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.
The Crucible Comparative Analysis Essay Though Arthur Miller wrote both the play and the movie script for “The Crucible”, they have many similarities and differences. He added a few more scenes to the movie to get the desired going audiences. He went from characters to moods, from plot to missing scenes, a lot of things that were added to the movie we never heard in the written play.
There are undeniable traits that films can hold that cannot plainly be seen within the text. Things like location setting where, in film, the viewer is able to have a wider picture of the environment, community, and a larger setting allows for more physical movement than say what would be possible on a stage. Also, film language can also be a big addition when understanding the good elements of film to theater. For example, where the camera is placed, picking up different angles—possible view points from multiple characters enables a more round story. While actors and costumes add other elements in both cases, the budgets for both projects are often vastly different.
The sod house was one small, undivided room. The stove sat in the centre, and, with plans to occupy the sod house with other boarders for extra income, the room sparsely furnished with four beds, a small table and chairs, and an old dry sink along the wall. Natan tried to negotiate his way into one of the extra beds, justifying that he and Stan needed their own due to their size. On the following evening, unable to hear any more of his sweet-talking nonsense, his grandmother surprised everyone when she returned from the loft, all of Natan’s belongings in a pillowcase, and dumped everything in a chest at the foot of his new bed. “Fine, you big man now.” She raised her two hands in the air to display his height.
The selections Bless Me, Ultima, The House on Mango Street, and A Midsummer’s Night Dream share the common theme of “People often make illogical decisions against reason when they ambitiously pursue a goal and are blinded from seeing reality.” In Bless Me, Ultima the characters illustrate the struggle which arises from the conflict between their personal dreams and their unseen reality. Likewise, in The House on Mango Street, the main character’s hopes and dreams for the future blinds her from seeing and appreciating her current life. Moreover, in A Midsummer’s Night Dream the characters’ actions demonstrate how love and ambition can blind people from the concerns of others and cause them to make irrational decisions. With common themes binding works of different genres and eras, it is mesmerizing to see how certain life truths do not vary, even over great times and
Scene organization throughout the movie is for the most part accurate, however there are a few scenes that are re-arranged or added, probably purposefully to dramatize the movie more. The opening scene in the movie, for instance, starts out with girls around a fire casting spells and dancing. In the play this scene is more of a flashback or recollection that appears later on and the play begins in, “A small upper bedroom in the home of Reverend Samuel Parris, Salem, Massachusetts, in the Spring of the year 1692” (Miller 3), where Parris is sitting at his ailing daughter, Betty’s, bed. Another example is when in the movie, Abigail and John Proctor kiss after arguing, or rather, Abigail kisses him. In the play, this does not happen.
(Gutzweiler 1) Buzzing with excitement, the theater hosted the first national screening of “A League of Their Own” on July 1, 1992 (Heeke 1). The Astra was one of the first to have air conditioning, to emphasize this, they put up penguin posters to bring people in. Some went, not to see the movies, but to feel the air conditioning.The cost being 12 to 10 cents, was a good deal to cool off and watch a movie, so the theater became a very popular place. Although the effects of the Great Depression seemed to have impacted other Indiana theaters, the Astra remained strong. Bernie used to say, “Now this is the business to be into; where everybody pays.” (Gutzweiler
