In my opinion think Hatchet does a better job of telling the story than A cry in the wild. I believe this because the narrator gives more details when he describe when Brian got into the plane.The narrator said Brian needed to build a raft.For example,the narrator said “ Brian build a raft “on page 159. In the movie it didn’t really show Brian building the raft. The movie didn’t show when Brian use shoelace to build the raft. The book also did a better job of showing the dead pilot. The narrator said that Brian saw the fish eating off the skull of the pilot. In the movie it didn’t show the fish eating off of the pilot. As you can see Hatchet does a better job explaining the story than the movie.
The novel The Lone Ranger and the Fistfight in Tonto and the film Smoke Signals are very similar in many aspects but have some key difference as well. The main differences occur in the situation where the characters had a choice. The first situation is where Victor and Thomas is the book decided to abruptly leave the Trailer in which they were staying while in the film Alexie chose to stay there. This lead to some character development where Alexie shared some of his stories such as the one about the basketball game. Another difference is throughout the film it is shown that Victor and Thomas have a more strained and aggressive relationship this can be seen in the scene when they're in the truck and Thomas yelled at Victor and showed aggression that wasn't seen in the novel; in the novel Thomas and Victor have a more respectful relationship with one another. Since Thomas is a lot more passive in the novel his stories are more easily understood. The biggest similarity in the book had to be the plot line where Victor's father dies in Arizona and he needed the help of Thomas to pick up his ashes. The difference is how they traveled to Arizona, in the film it was by bus in the novel it was by plane. Another difference in the amount of money Victor was given in the film he says his mother gave him fourth dollars in the novel he was given one hundred by the tribe. All in all the largest difference would be the origination

“Where the Red Fern grows,” is a book and a movie. The movie and the book has the same scenes but the movie is missing some details. The book has more narration than the movie. The book in my opinion feels like I am there. It draws me in more than the movie does.
Have you ever rode in a car for more than 24 hours? The plot in the book of “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, is about a family going on a trip to Birmingham in 1963 and experience an event that makes them see how wrong color in the south are treated. The plot in the movie is more about how colored had been fighting for their rights and all the event leading up to everyone becoming equal. In “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, lots of events changed the plot like the movie is focused mainly on Civil Rights while the book isn 't, but Joey leaves the church before it blows up in both, so there are some similarities.

The plot is same regarding Chris’ journey in both the movie and the book. However it is the execution of the book that gives Into the Wild more depth. Unlike the movie the book is portrayed through the eyes of Jon Krakauer

No matter how hard directors and screenwriters try, it is impossible for any movie to be a perfect reflection of the detailed plot and intricate characters presented in a novel. I had watched the film adaption of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend prior to reading the book, I was very aware of major differences from the get go. The to main categories that I could see differences being placed in were emotion and action. Many aspects of the book were changed to emphasize both either emotion or action for the film. Considering pieces of literature cannot be easily transferred to the screen, few of these changes were very necessary.
I think the movie version is better than the book. The reason for this is because the movie has a lot more character than the book does. You get to see what the characters look like, while the book doesn’t give a good description of the people in the book at all. You can feel the mood better in the movie because of all of the extra things, like the lightning and fog, to capture the mood.

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. “Ask any reader who has seen the movie version of a favorite novel, and the answer will usually be, "The book was better." That 's because readers of a novel have already made their own perfect movie version” (Corliss et al., 2005). It would appear that Corliss is correct because many people who have read The Hunger Games book would say that it is better than the movie. Although the Hunger Games movie is entertaining, it is very different from the book. There are details left out of the movie that were in the book, the movie doesn 't demonstrate the ongoing theme of hunger as well as the book does, and the the movie does a better job with
The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas. If they didn’t put the Grinch’s hate for Christmas in both the book and, he would have no reason to steal Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a very good movie. The second comparison between the book and the movie was Who’s love for Christmas. This is very important because the it is the Who’s love for Christmas that causes the Grinch's hate for
The book Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick is a book about two boys that become best friends and have a special connection. In the movie, The Mighty, there are several scenes the same, but there are also many different scenes.The movie portrays several scenes differently than they are in the book such as the lunch scene, the return of the purse, and how Freak rescues Maxwell.
The Birds by Daphne du Maurier is a fantastic horror story that was brought to cinematic life by Alfred Hitchcock. The movie, although seems completely different from the book, represents the book well. The movie shows that no matter when, to whom, or where, the theme of the book is prevalent. The theme from both book and movie is man vs. nature. The birds begin attacking seemingly out of nowhere, and man has a very low chance to defeat them. Though the ending from both book and movie is quite vague, this allows many theories from fans. Overall, The Birds is a great show of horror and how man will never truly beat nature, it is a great movie and story especially for it’s time.
