There are many movies and books that have tons of similarities and differences. I choosed A Series of Unfortunate Events, because of the nail biting moments that are in the book and movie. Plus,and you just want to know what happened. They both have many differences, but not many similarities. Some of the differences are very big changes and might make you like the other one more.
Have you ever watched the movie adaptation of a book, only to find that the book is far superior to it’s movie counterpart? Oftentimes when a book is adapted into a movie, there are some differences between the two. Sometimes the differences are subtle, but other times the differences are dramatic and can affect the development of the story. An example of this is the movie adaptation of the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. To Kill A Mockingbird is a story that takes place during the Great Depression in Alabama. It is a coming of age story narrated by the main character, Scout Finch, and displays the way that she and her brother, Jem Finch, mature. In the movie adaptation of this classic novel, multiple events were changed, which affected the development of the story and of certain characters. The novel To Kill A Mockingbird was better than the movie because the novel developed the setting, the dual plots, the theme of racism, and the character of Jem Finch better than the movie. Additionally, multiple events were omitted from the movie.
In this film called The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and a book called Jasper Jones written by Craig Silvey they will be comparing and contrasting the use of themes in the film and the book. Revenge in The Dressmaker happens when Tilly burned the town; in Jasper Jones Eliza burned her home. Then in Family Tilly and Molly has a rough start but when Tilly came back they turned out to be happy with each other, while in Jasper Jones Charlies mum and Charlie are happy at the start but went downhill very quickly when Laura disappeared. The themes are revenge, death, and family.
Atticus Finch is quoted “You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb in his skin and and walk around in it.” This quote from the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee supports the idea of truly getting to know a person to understand what they go through.Although the film and novel can compare, many aspects prove to show they also contrast. Not only do events contrasts but the ways the universal truths are supported compare and contrast from the novel and film.The themes that one does not truly know another person until they are in their shoes and that power is no blessing itselfs except when it is used to protect innocence are both fully supported in both the film and novel
The beginning of the hero's journey in both of these stories are pretty similar. In The Hunger Games, the call to adventure is similar to it in Star Wars because Luke and Katniss both have to go into a fight. The tests allies and enemies part is pretty similar to because they both battle and really find out what they are up against. The reward near the end is very similar to because they are both awarded something for winning a fight.
“The book is a film that takes place in the mind of the reader. That’s why we go to movies and say, ‘Oh, the book is better’”(Paulo Coelo). Sometimes, like stated in the quote, the movie turns out awful because of director modifications. But, every once in awhile, the changes will actually enhance the story. The Hobbit is an example of that. The book, the Hobbit, is a book by J. R. R Tolkien and was adapted as a movie trilogy by Peter Jackson. The scene that is being analyzed is in the first of the three movies, “An Unexpected Journey”. It is about Bilbo, a carefree Hobbit, who gets taken on an adventure with 13 other dwarves and wizard to reclaim their lost gold. In this fantasy world, there are many dangers, such as trolls and goblins,
What would you do if you were forced into an arena and you have to kill everyone else or die? Would you kill everyone, wait out everyone, or not even try and get eliminated in the first hour? In the story The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, these games have been haunting people for 75 years. Each year the Capitol (the government of Panem) picks both a male and female tribute from each district. Speaking of districts, instead of states they have districts. Each of the twelve districts have their own specialty, whether it’s fishing or chopping lumber which plays a major role in the survival and strategies for the tributes from that district. The people chosen to be in the games have many different strategies on surviving this cruel punishment
When watching the movie, The Hunger Games a viewer can see that it symbolizes our current culture today, is a hero myth and has a shadow character archetype. The Hunger Games is about a Capitol called Panem that chooses a total of 12 males and 12 females, out of a drawing. A male and female will then each represent a district. Taking those 24 people and having them fight each other to the death with only one victor. Additionally they glamorize the process by televising it for everyone to watch. The movie follows a girl named Katniss Everdeen, she is a 16 year old from district 12 who has a strong and fearless personality. Her younger sister was chosen in the drawing, and as a result Katniss courageously volunteers herself in replacement of her sister.
The famous novel The Hunger Games was written by Suzanne Collins. The book was published on September 14, 2008 and became an award winning nominee in 2012. In this book, the main protagonist Katniss Everdeen volunteered as a tribute for her younger sister Primrose Everdeen in the Hunger Games. When the theaters announced that the award- winning book was about to be launched, everyone knew that the movie and the book would be different. The main plots of the book that was different from the book were the scene where Katniss was leaving District 12, the “mutt scene” , and the new version of Seneca Crane, the gamemaker. These three main plots show the difference between the book and the movie.
The Hunger Games is a faithful literary adaptation based on the book of the same name by Suzanne Collins. It is the first book in the trilogy followed by Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Both the movie and the novel have adventure, drama, and sci-fi genres. Suzanne Collins also writes fantasy, science fiction, children 's literature, and young-adult fiction novels. The movie fits the genre of sci-fi, adventure and drama because it tells a story about how people and societies are affected by imaginary scientific developments in the future.
The original Hunger Games book and The Hunger Games film their most content are analogous as the plot development , character relation and the ending. But also they have many differences between them as the appearance, District 12, career tributes and after the games.
The picture is a still of the movie “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, second part in a saga based on a trilogy of books. This scene appears in the beginning of the film and represents The Reaping, the process that selects the participants of the Quarter Quell. I argue that the scene is a defining moment in the revolution because it is the instant when the discourse changes and the people stand together to fight a repressive system that favors class inequality.
Survival takes a big part in Katniss’s and Peeta’s life. They both depend on each other to keep them both alive during the Hunger Games. During the Hunger Games, there are many fights and challenges to overcome. The hard part of the Hunger Games, is surviving. Setting: The setting in the book “Catching Fire” is mostly in the battle arena. This is where each Hunger Game takes place every year. This setting is important because if it was in a different place like in Paris, it wouldn’t make sense. It wouldn’t make sense because there wouldn’t be any challenges in Paris. In the arena, to make things more tricky and to kill the kids faster, they add dangerous blood rains and poisonous fog. They even have mechanical mockingjays that sound like your family members screaming near the killer fog. This makes Katniss and her competitors want to run straight to the poisonous fog and try to find them. Figurative Language: I found this quote in the beginning of chapter 2. “In my mind, President Snow should be viewed in front of marble pillars hung with oversized flags. It’s jarring to see him surrounded by the ordinary objects in the room. Like taking off the lid off the pot and finding a fanged viper instead of stew.” This is an
