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.
A major difference is that there are some characters that were in the book that aren't in the movie like Flora Baumbach, Theo Theodorakis, and Madame Hoo. Even though the movie wasn’t as good or as exciting as the book, they were both interesting and are fun to read and listen
Firstly, in my opinion I think it has more details than the movie. The book has the same characters but in the book there is three sisters. The book had details that felt so real. It described everything, the setting and the mood.
Yes, the basics of the plot are similar, but in the movie, there are changed details, mainly like missing scenes in the movie that the book originally had, or simplified events. In the movie, there was an additional girl character that was not in the book. The house Moon eventually came to at the end of the story was supposed to be a brick house. Some of the things the characters in the movie said were a bit different from what was said in the book. Things like that.
Another difference is that in the movie they go into town, but in the book it 's never mentioned. Something else that was different was that in the book the mood was happy most of the time, while in the movie the mood was sad. A difference between the book and the movie is that in the book momma was going to burn Byron, but in the movie she does not burn him. A big difference is that in the
Battle to the Death: Cinema Vs. Novel Some of the best movies are based on books. One movie based on a book is The Hunger Games. While the movie is entertaining, it is very different from the book.
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social
An example of one of these book/movies is Where the Red Fern Grows, written by Wilson Rawls in 1961, and directed by Norman Tokar in 1974. The movie is very different from the novel in many ways, yet there are many similarities. As a reader of the novel and a viewer of the movie, I believe that the things that has completely changed the course of the story and yet have similarities that kept the basic
One of the differences is that they were fighting a monster in the book but in the movie they were fighting a man, that acted like an animal. In the book the monster was a dragon that they had to fight. In the movie the monster was like a man, but wore animal skin clothes and had paint all over there face. They both were fought in the same way in both the
Films that are based off books create a scene for the audience while bringing the words on the paper to life. They usually address the same issues as the original content, but adds additional details to stand out from the book. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a book that was transformed into a movie in 1966. The book and film discuss similar themes such as censorship, dystopian society, and propaganda, but does different work with the same story of books being destroyed in a society. This is especially true when considering how the film introduces new ideas, eliminates characters, and changes important scenes from the book.
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.
The differences are that in the book, are the color of the Grinch, the Sleigh at the top of the mountain, and the age of Cindy Lu Who. The first contrast I found between the book and the movie was the color of the Grinch. In the book, the Grinch has no color and is black and white. In the movie, the Grinch is green.
