Dally even heard that Johnny said that fighting was useless after all. He felt sad that even he won the rumble, he lost his friend. He decided then to rob a grocery store and try to threaten the cops so he could get his death. The other problem Ponyboy solved it really well was that he decided to save the kids that were trapped in the church considering he might ignite the fire. However, Ponyboy did make bad decisions too.
The theme of perseverance is one that stretches across the wide spectrum of genres when it comes to literature and film. Romance, horror, adventure, even cartoons/graphic novels all contain the element of heroic perseverance over blockades restricting the tale’s equilibrium. In The Odyssey we see Odysseus must overcome a tremendous amount of trials to make it home to his wife and son. The quantity of trials that Odysseus must face would be far too much for a normal man, but not heroic Odysseus. He battles and outsmarts a host of fiends including Polyphemus, the sirens, Scylla and Charybdis (twice), and even the underworld itself.
Grendel who is the monster, hated to see the men celebrate their joy after winning victories. In Return, it made Grendel Upset in the movie and textbook when he discovered the men celebrating he goes into the hall once they all were asleep and attacked him. It upsets the Danes that he had killed their men. Beowulf then heard the news and gathered his strongest men to attack Grendel. They plotted on how Beowulf could destroy Grendel for what he did to the men.
Many people who just go for the movie will not notice a thing. Sometimes the director improves the movie or sometimes the changes make the movie worse. We see the effect of a movie changed from the original book in the novel, The Hobbit. Peter Jackson applies many changes to JRR Tolkien’s masterpiece in many different ways. This book is a fantasy about many creatures and animals trying to stop a party of dwarves and one little hobbit from having the adventure of a lifetime.
Also, Killer Kane doesn’t speak of his get rich quick scam, which he was sure would aggrandize him, as much in the movie as he did in the book. Then, in the movie, Killer Kane strangle Loretta in the apartment, rather than the burnt building from the book. Much later in the tales, there’s a difference in the time that Freak dies. In the book, he passes away after his birthday; in the movie, he perishes after
Heroes need weapons to defeat their enemies, and it is no different for the hero Beowulf in the epic poem Beowulf. Beowulf uses all sorts of weapons throughout his many battles with monsters. Each weapon that he uses there is attached a cultural significance. There is a cultural significance attached to each weapon that he uses, ultimately aiding him in his survival and his killing of the beats. As he grows older, he needs to wear more armor and fight with stronger weapons to be able to kill his enemies.
Since Odysseus had told Polyphemus earlier that “Nobody---that’s my name,”(Homer 223.410) none of Polyphemus’ brothers came to help him when he started screaming that “Nobody” was attacking him. Another time when Odysseus was very skillful was when he goes back to his home, and he disguises himself as a beggar. When he pulls back the rags, he is described as “Odysseus master of craft and battle.” (Homer 439. 1) He then fights and kills all the suitors in his home in Ithaca with some help from his son.
In the movie he does crazy stuff like jump from a helicopter and attacked by a shark. Also he climbs a mountain to find a photographer. In the movie his daydream let him come out to the world and do crazy thing. In the book he gets stuff for his wife and daydream 3 times.
As a soldier fighting in battle, Paul is unable to “think at all” during these desperate situations. His actions of “[striking the soldier]” viciously emphasizes how he had become desensitized, which also reveals his animalistic nature because of how he follows his instincts of “[striking the soldier without thinking]” about the consequences. Paul, like many other soldiers in WWI, was forced to kill more people “[without any thought]” for the preservation of his own life allowing him to develop inhuman behavior. Throughout the war,
While the remainder of men are frightened, Odysseus begins thinking up how to flee. He successfully outsmarts the cyclops and escapes. This shows that in times of horror and grief, to remain calm and remember the enemy may appear stronger, however, a mind has the strength of a million
With Beowulf strength he was able to devour Grendel without any help. Grendel attacked Beowulf while he was sleeping and still was able to devour him. In the movie Grendel was Hrothgar’s son; however, in the textbook Grendel was a descendent of Cain. Grendel was Hrothgar’s son in the movie because he slept with Grendel’s mom. Grendel was a descendent of Cain because demon descended from Cain, Grendel prey’s on Hrothgar
What Was Better the Book or the Movie? Gavin Hood 's adaptation of Orson Card’s book Ender’s game is a great representation of awesomeness. Ender wiggin played by Asa Butterfield is an example of pure genius but however some of the details are off such as him at graduation battle instead of his toon being in different rooms, they are right there with him throughout the whole battle when they destroyed the whole bugger planet. Another detail that was left out of the book is the chapters in the book that were just all about Valentine and Peter.
I believe the book Ender’s Game is more exceptional than the film because of the development of characters and events that happens in the book, and the hardship Ender faces to become a great leader against the buggers. Throughout the story of Ender’s Game, Ender is constantly being isolated by Colonel Graff in order for Ender to think, make decisions, and respond to situations by himself. This isolation is to prepare Ender to become a great leader in battle. In the story, Graff orders to have Ender’s monitor taken out to observe how Ender responds to mistreatment from bullies.
Odysseus had no choice but to land at this island because the men had no food or water. Unknown to Odysseus and his men, the island was inhabited by bloodthirsty Cyclopes. They went to check out the island and they find a cave in which they find some wine and cheese. The men didn’t want to stay, but Odysseus insisted they wait on the owner to return. While they are eating the chess and the wine, a large Cyclopes Polyphemus is not happy with what he sees and he eats two of the men, and “when the cyclops fills is huge belly with human flesh, he washed it down with milk, then stretched out in his cave among his flocks.”
Ender then goes and is faced with challenges everyday to test who he is. Ender finally destroys the buggers, but finds out that they weren 't trying to hurt the humans. These important parts are shown in both the book and the movie, however the book is a better showing of Ender’s journey. There are multiple themes and plots that are necessities for Ender’s journey. One plot that was noticed was that Ender has a free pass to be a killer.
