We also had more focus on the other apartments than there was in the story but, the focus on the other apartments was to give us a visual of Jeff and Lisa’s problems rather than actually corresponding to the murder. Due to these slight interruptions, the points of high suspense were reduced throughout the film while we had continuous suspense in the short story. The film, like the short story, was portrayed from a limited setting but many people wouldn't expect this from a movie so, it may have seemed more like a play rather than an actual
In the book, she aborted her unborn son as revenge to her husband who left her for another woman. On the contrary, in the movie she unconsciously kills her own son by drowning him in the bath tub. In the book, she killed her unborn son out of hatred for her husband. Although the scene in the movie tries to illustrate her hatred, it conveys that the baby was killed out of carelessness instead of hatred. The movie doesn’t uncover Ying Ying’s feelings accurately.
I think cliques form because people that have a lot of things in common try to stick together, like how Andy and Claire knew each other before going to the detention. I feel that cliques could be both good and bad, it just depends on how your clique treats other people who aren’t in your clique, in the movie Brian’s clique wouldn’t turn people away where as Claire’s clique would. We have discussed stereotypes and the effect they have on an individual, in the movie Brian was going to kill himself because he was supposed to be the smart one but he got a B in
The first change of the movie, which most people saw almost immediately as this character appeared was Mercutio. He acted a lot different in the movie than he did in the play, in the movie he was more childish, immature, more dramatic. For example when Mercutio started telling Romeo the story of Queen Mab, he was more dramatic and sarcastic but by the end he was almost screaming, and during the Capulet party he was extremely childish, which most people thought was funny but if the situation was more serious, many people would be upset and angry with him. I believe that the director decided to change Mercutio in this way is to make it more dramatic than the play was originally, to make the scenes more tense if needed. The kinds of effects that this can have on a viewer that has read the play make it seem like he is extremely childish, and doesn’t really care about most things, and in some parts of the movie it seemed like he didn’t care that much about things that have happened.
It is often believed that pictures speak louder than words. However, when comparing a book to a movie, this quote is totally not applicable. The purpose of creating a movie from a book is mainly to bring the characters to life and make the story more relatable. Fantasies, especially, are unrealistic and hence a movie makes the fantasy come to life. The Princess Bride was originally a book which was then filmed as a movie to recreate the story.
Books and movies are two completely different mediums in which audiences can enjoy a story. They seem different when one thinks about it, and it is true. Numerous points come to mind when we contrast a volume and its featured motion picture. However, both have several similarities than neutralize the differences. Take The Outsiders for instance, a novel by author S.E.
When Hank creates the “simple plan” and chooses to devise the money it amongst his friends, he believes that he will be able to follow through with it. Unfortunately his plan goes way off course, and he is forced to kill several innocent people simply out of the fear of being caught. Macbeth similarly had to face a lot of guilt following Duncan’s murder, all as a result of a bad decision. Towards the end of both stories we see both men in similar settings to the beginning scenes but their attitudes and emotions are the polar
The differences, however, say a lot about how the directors and actors feel about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book. The director of the first version, made in 2000, seems to view it as a joke, but perhaps saw profit from producing this movie. The movie formed in 2013, seems to take the book more serious, and though seeing profit as well, wanted to make certain aspects shine through. Though both films have similarities, the differences are much more powerful and depict how the actors and directors view the novel. One of the major differences was the choice of
There are a lot more differences between the two that you would have thought. Most movies have a few differences between the book and poem they are originated from. The battles in the movie and poem were probably the biggest differences between the two. Both the movie and poem are similar and
Specifically, according to this theory Jim Jones began to mess around with the idea of a “Revolutionary Suicide”(Jonestown Massacre 3). For example, a member from The People’s Temple that escaped told about practicing suicide drills (Streissguth 1). Meanwhile, after the member told people about this a reporter and Congressman Leo Ryan went to investigate what was going on. He found that everything that was said was true such as the suicide drills, beatings, and many people asked for them to take them with them. Once Ryan decided to leave Jones found out and sent gunman to terminate Ryan and the reporter out of fear that the truth about Jonestown would be exposed.
