This popular version of the Hollywood legend is complemented by another legendary discourse about the film community that relates Hollywood to the intellectual landscape of the nation and to its cultural hierarchies. This second Hollywood legend is different from the one created by the “fan-zines” and yet is just as fictive. While fan magazines rose-tinted Hollywood into a “Venice without canals,” American literati have crafted a different image of Hollywood marked by desperation and loneliness. In the New Deal era, the attitude of many New York modernist intellectuals toward Hollywood was certainly ambiguous and largely unscathed by what Andreas Huyssen has called the contemporary “anxiety of contamination” between “high and low,” mass culture and
Considering that the story is indeed different from the movie studies show that movies often portray more details than written versions of literature. For instance, adding different characters and changing their names gives readers and viewers different insights of them in movies that in the stories. In fact, the editing of the locations and characters in the story played
Between the novel Treasure Island and the animated movie Treasure Planet there are multiple similarities and differences. The novel was written by Robert Louis Stevenson, and the movie was directed by Disney. The movie Treasure Planet was actually made based on the novel Treasure Island. Although they were both well done pieces, I would prefer the movie over the novel. In this essay, I’m now going to tell you the similarities and differences of the characters, plot, theme, and setting in the movie and also the novel.
Rochaster is a significant character in the film because he is one of the main characters. In the 1943 version of the film Orson Welles plays his character and in the 1996 version of the film William Hurt plays Mr. Rochaster. Orson Welles’s performance as Mr. Rochaster seems more realistic, Holden agrees with this idea: Mr. Hurt 's subdued, introverted portrayal is out of sync with the rest of the film 's tone of discreet grandeur. In two earlier versions of the story, Rochester was played by Orson Welles and George C. Scott as a more ominous patriarchal figure… Instead of conjuring thunderstorms of half-suppressed emotion, his face registers a wary, embittered angst.”(Holden) In the old version of the film we see that Mr. Rochaster as an earnest person as Orson Welles’ interpretation but Hurt’s interpretation of Mr. Rochaster is more like a kind person in this case we could say that 1943 version of the film did better than the modern version. Characters, plot of the films and visuals in two different versions of Jane Eyre movies are compared and which one is depicted these aspects better than the other one is shown.
The Giver & Adaptation Theory After reading The Giver and watching the 2014 film in class, I have noticed lots of differences and similarities among the two. Most of the movie is correct but at the same time, they made some slight changes from the director’s perspective. I will apply Linda Hutcheon’s Adaptation Theory to analyze the choices that the director made in the movie that is different from the book. The first thing I would talk about is the main character Jonas, exactly like the book, it starts before the Ceremony of Twelve took place. In the movie, they called it the Ceremony of Sixteen which is completely different.
I strongly agree with Suderman and his allegations regarding the DC movies and how they are made. Given that making the movies the action scene are to a “t”, but the characters and their background are greatly unrecognized, as well as their appearances. As an example just as Suderman proclaims, the movie Suicide Squad doesn’t focus on one thing, but rather veers off into several different scenes creating some confusion throughout the movie. A little of history of each character is barley to almost never established along with not furthering the plot. Given each characters history, they don’t primarily focus on their past, but how it affected them and how they felt.
The film Julius Caesar in 1953 by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar have versions that play different scenes and include the same settings on the play. In the film the director was making the scenes to be more visual than the play that William Shakespeare’s originally made. Moreover the play is preferable than the movie because in the play the reading has more detailed information, and the movie skipped some scenes. Accordingly the differences from the movie and the play is the tribunes are arrested in the movie, nevertheless in the play they just say they have been removed. The director of the movie did show the arrest, maybe because it’s an significant detail for the audience to
Comparing The Book The Great Gatsby to the Film Many literary works have been adapted into movies, however, books offer more detailed information to the audience compared to the movies. The Great Gatsby is an example of a novel that was adapted into a movie directed by Baz Luhrmann. According to Batchelor, even though the movie and the book can be compared, the film does not stay true to the original text (45). However, Luhrmann is not the only producer that has stayed true to the original authors writing. Nonetheless, he stays true to the theme and the plot of the original story.
A segment of life in Hollywood is being spread across the screen of the Music Hall in Sunset Boulevard. Using as the basis of their frank, caustic drama a scandalous situation involving a faded, aging silent screen star and a penniless, cynical young scriptwriter, Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder (with an assist from D. M. Marshman, Jr.) have written a powerful story of the ambitions and frustrations that combine to make life in the cardboard city so fascinating to the outside world. Sunset Boulevard is by no means a rounded story of Hollywood, past or present. But it is such a clever compound of truth and legend—and is so richly redolent of the past, yet so contemporaneous—that it seemingly speaks with great authority. Sunset Boulevard is
One of the many reasons why people argue about minorities, and or race and ethnicity being poorly portrayed in Hollywood, is because that’s how people are going to accept that specific race. Although some defender argues that people do not judge a race by the things they see in a movie, I couldn’t disagree more. A movie or a TV show gives these certain characters a voice, and if they themselves are accepting the negative things, then others will. In that situation it causes fear. I strongly believe the entertainment industry uses race and ethnicity as a leverage for more
