Answer directly, and clearly explain your thoughts in at least two or three sentences. I think some of the changes from the book in the movie improve the story because they make the audience have more of an emotional appeal with the audience. When you can see the joy, hurt, anger, or worry on someone’s face it makes it a lot easier to understand the characters’ motives behind their actions. The symbol of Eckleburg’s eyes is much more prevalent in the movie and it makes the audience understand clearly the significance behind them. Other changes had no effect on the story because they were just items added in for dramatic effect, like Gatsby’s aggression towards Tom after Tom told him they were not equal.
The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book. The fact is that no matter how well the movie covers the book, there will always be some noticeable difference, as Fitzgerald’s words from the book paint’s a vivid picture of the scenes, that it’s come to life in the mind of its reader. Therefore, even with a perfect design, cast, and performance, any movie version can only disappoint. One of the biggest difference can be seen in the theme representation of the American Dream. While the movie shows the achievement of the American dream, the book shows its failure.
In the film adaptation of the novel, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, some of the original aspects that make the novel so timeless are not included in the movie. However, due to the vastly different medium that film is and the abstractness of the novel, it makes sense why some things would have to change in order for the story to transfer to the screen successfully. While many die-hard fans of the novel denounce the film version of their beloved story, others celebrate the presence of Adams’ wit in the movie especially through the cartoon representations of the guide entries. First of all, the Hitchhiker’s Guide is pictured much differently in the movie than in the novel. The creators of the movie portray the guide as an
For example, there are more differences between Aladdin and Beowulf, yet the similarities are more pivotal in their respective ways. This can easily been seen by the kind of plot used in the pieces, Hero’s Quest. Without using this kind of plot or storyline, there would be nearly no similarities between the two, however, since Hero’s Quest was utilized by both the director and the author, it creates many more similarities beyond the plot. Yet, the number of differences is far greater than that of the similarities. For instance, Aladdin is motivated by love compared to Beowulf being driven by ego and pride.
Another big difference was that Sydelle Pulaski wasn’t the mistake like she was in the novel. Sam Westing had a mistake brought to play The Westing Game in the novel, but not in the movie. There are some differences between The Westing Game novel and movie. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth noting. For example one big similarity is when Turtle wins The Westing Game in both movie and novel.
What Information is Necessary? Mya Maldini In the book the Paper Towns by John Green there are many noticeable differences compared to the movie. This includes special characters and locations. As the audience, I believe to create a successful film, that it is important to include as much detail that was in the novel, but in a summarized fashion. John Green did a good job at getting most of the important details into the movie, but as a reader there are a couple parts that may stand out.
Firstly, in the book you can imagine the story and characters the way you want to. Secondly, the book includes far more details than the movie that deeply develops the characters. Lastly, the movie did not include favored parts that were in the book. The book showed its full potential. First, the book was better than the movie because you
Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez seemed as an unusually confusing book on the surface, but after the discussion, the book started to make sense. Though at the same time, the discussion only raised more questions about little details within the book. The first point brought up within the discussion was the changing perspectives was the most interesting aspect of the book. Because I am person that enjoys things being in order, I do not agree. The switching of perspectives made the book have a messy feel to it.
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
A common comparison made everyday is between books and movies. Many movies based on books leave out important details and scenarios disappointing the audience. In the futuristic short story, "Harrison Bergeron," by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., everyone is equal or average, what many people might consider a utopia. 2081 is a movie based on "Harrison Bergeron," and like any other book based movie, it excludes many details and alters many scenes changing the storyline. Personally, I found the book more appealing than the movie because of the specific details and description.
Socs our called Socs because their the more social group and they just use Socs for short/a nickname. The outsiders is a really good book and movie. You could easily compare both of them though, for their differences and their similarities. The Book and the movie our two different things but it has some things in common, they have a lot of things that our same but also a lot of
Another difference would be that Jordan Baker and Nick Carraway did NOT have a loving relationship like in the book; they didn’t communicate in the movie as much as they did in the movie. I think one of the big differences was West Egg vs East Egg. In the movie, West Egg and East Egg were never at one point described as “old money” and “new money”
Dan Morgenstern compared the original transcript to Satchmo and the differences he saw were due to editing to “changing Armstrong’s three-dot style to conventionally punctuated sentence-structure.” Morgenstern believes that Armstrong has a certain style to him that isn’t replicable it’s found in his writing and his music. Louis Armstrong is a world renown musician, but he not known for his writing. Armstrong is a storyteller though, because of his larger than life personality and storytelling skills. Having the book edited made it somewhat easier to read and made a difference by fixing the structure of how the story is read. 2.
Unlike the movie, you get to know more about the characters. You also get more details than what the movie showed. For example, Thresh and Rue were really close in the book. In the movie, you rarely saw them together. In conclusion, there is many comparing and contrasting in the Hunger Games novel and film.
