There were a lot of things that were the same in the book and movie Freak the Mighty. There also was some difference. Some of the difference weren 't really a big difference, so some people may not have noticed them. Some of the other differences were big differences so most people probably noticed them if they paid attention to both.
Something Wicked This Way Comes was written by Ray Bradbury in 1962. It was then remade into a movie in 1983 by Walt Disney Productions. This science fiction novel is about two boys who have to defeat an evil carnival in the city of Green Town, Illinois. Even though the movie has the same storyline, there are many noticeable differences. The main differences is categorized into three main groups, plot, theme, and personality.
A book and a movie can be both the same and different. In The Outsiders there are many similarities and differences with the book and movie. They were the same because Johnny kills a man, they cut their, there was the movie scene, and Johnny and Ponyboy went to the church. Some of the differences is when Darry slaps Ponyboy but in the movie he pushes him, Johnny doesn't bring a lot of food in the book but does in the movie he does, when Johnny killed the man it was more described but it wasn't in the movie, and Johnny says he wants to kill himself in the movie. In The Outsiders one of the themes is “friendship”
After I read Ender’s Game I watched the movie and I can’t say the movie was bad, but many things in the movie were not relevant at all to the book. The movie was way too short and they fast forwarded too many things. They also dumbed down the twists like when Ender destroys the Buggers when he thought it was a simulation game. It even ditched all the somewhat important things. They must have cut out over 2 hours of plot between every new scene. It also did a few things in common like when something very important came along they would sometimes copy the text word by word. At Least it isn’t as different as “World War Z’. The book creator said, “The only thing my book and the movie had in common was the title.”
As you readers and movie watchers may all wonder, will there EVER be a movie that is the same as its novel counterpart? The answer is, we all highly doubt it. If we were to watch a movie exactly the same as the book version, wouldn’t it be quite boring? Yes it would. An example of one of these book/movies is Where the Red Fern Grows, written by Wilson Rawls in 1961, and directed by Norman Tokar in 1974. The movie is very different from the novel in many ways, yet there are many similarities. As a reader of the novel and a viewer of the movie, I believe that the things that has completely changed the course of the story and yet have similarities that kept the basic
The book, Ender’s Game, is a book full of interesting events. A six year old boy named Ender Wiggin goes to Battle School, where he is continually tested and trained to become an elite commander. He succeeds at Battle School and eventually goes to Command School, where he leads his army to victory over the bugger troops. Because of this, the world is safe from being destroyed by the buggers. Even though Ender and his fleet are successful in defeating the buggers, Ender’s intelligence and skill is taken advantage of throughout the book. The I.F. takes away most of the freedom that Ender is entitled to and they manipulate him to do what they want him to do. This manipulation is quite evident throughout Ender’s Game.
In this film called The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and a book called Jasper Jones written by Craig Silvey they will be comparing and contrasting the use of themes in the film and the book. Revenge in The Dressmaker happens when Tilly burned the town; in Jasper Jones Eliza burned her home. Then in Family Tilly and Molly has a rough start but when Tilly came back they turned out to be happy with each other, while in Jasper Jones Charlies mum and Charlie are happy at the start but went downhill very quickly when Laura disappeared. The themes are revenge, death, and family.
There are comparisons and contrast in the movie and the book “The Outsiders”. For example in both when Ponyboy and Johnny run away from after killing Bob they go on the train to the abandoned church in both.They are similar because in the story and movie Johnny kills bob then runs away with Pony. They go to Dally where he gave them a pistol and told them to jump on the train and get off at the second stop Windrixville and go to the abandoned church on top of jay mountain. Another example of similarities between both is they still have all the main characters in the greaser gang.They are similar because throughout both Ponyboy and Johnny are the main characters from the greaser gang until they kill bob then the rest of the greaser gang becomes more of the main characters. There are many different similarities between the book and movie “The Outsiders”, but there are also a lot of comparisons between the two.
In Ender’s Game, Colonel Graff states, “With Ender, we have to strike a delicate balance. Isolate him enough that he remains creative-otherwise he’ll adopt the system here and we’ll lose him. At the same time, we need to make sure he keeps a strong ability to lead.”Graff is talking about his plans for Ender and how to make the perfect commander. This was the major story line throughout the novel. Ender’s Game takes place during a time of war with an alien species called the Buggers. Mankind’s only hope at destroying the enemy lies in the hands of a child named Ender Wiggin. Ender must endure brutal training and preparation in order to defeat the Buggers when the time comes. This wonderful story is told in both book and movie form. However,
“If you try and you lose then it isn’t your fault. But if you don’t try and we lose, then it’s all your fault.” In the second war against the buggers, also known as aliens, a lot of pressure rested on Ender Wiggins shoulders. During the first war, commander Mazer Rackham was able to defeat the buggers and keep them from destroying earth. In order to find the next Mazer, Col. Graff initiated a new military program. When Ender enters the program, he shows impressive skill and dodges each challenge that is thrown at him. In order to prepare for the second invasion, Ender trains under Mazer Rackham himself to become a commander of his own fleet. Ender ends up defeating the buggers and winning the second invasion, only to find out that the
In Orson Scott Card’s book Ender’s Game, Ender is continually set up against impossible odds by the International Fleet, which is part of a plan to train Ender to fight in the Third Invasion and end the bugger wars forever. Ender’s trials are portrayed more convincingly in the book, as the book shows him struggling with the expectations placed upon him more so than in the movie.
Books are the ideal way to introduce a reader to the many morals of the human society. In the novel Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Ender, is drafted by the international fleet to lead multiple fleets of ships in combat against an alien species, but he does not realize that he was drafted for that purpose. Ender is sent to Battle School, where he becomes a true archetypal leader, and he gains many valuable friends that help him along the way. At a hidden asteroid, Ender begins what he believes are simulations, but really is the Third Invasion. After he destroys the alien species, he is told that it was all real and he breaks down. The valuable lessons that Ender learns from this victory helped make the book such a successful one that won
When dividing the book and movie of Enders Game into sections, we can clearly see that the movie was far more better than the book, at least visually. Not only did the movie show us greater details than the book, it also gave us an idea of what the characters and settings looked like. Some scenes that prove that the movie is richer in quality than the book; is the fight with the buggers at the beginning, the battle room scene with salamander and leopard army, and when Ender goes on the Bugger 's planet to talk to the queen.
