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
In the movie productions of A Wrinkle In Time and And Then There Were None, the directors did not follow the original story line. The directors made some changes in the movies which did eventually end up affecting some of the movie scenes.
Firstly, in my opinion I think it has more details than the movie. The book has the same characters but in the book there is three sisters. The book had details that felt so real. It described everything, the setting and the mood. It had more narration so the reader could understand what is happening.
One main difference is Mitch and Janine’s relationship. In the book, they are married and have a healthy relationship, but in the movie, they are not married and fight often. They break up in the movie, but eventually get married. A big portion of the movie’s plot is about Mitch and Janine’s relationship. In the book, Janine was only mentioned on the tenth Tuesday, when
There are also a few similarities between the book and the movie like how Kenny almost drowns in both. Another thing that is in both the movie and the book is that Kenny sees a little girl trapped in the church. Also in both the book and the movie Kenny hides behind the couch. The bombing at the church happens in both the book and the movie. A big similarity is that in both the book and the movie Joey leaves the church before it blows up.
“Aaaaahh!!” Turtle screamed as she saw Sam Westing’s dead body in the Westing house! People like to read and watch good mysteries just like this movie and novel. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin contains many mysteries in both the movie and novel. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth exploring.
A Time to Kill follows the trial of Carl Lee Hailey as he is charged with murder for killing the two men who raped his 10-year-old daughter. Jake Brigance, the lawyer for Carl, is on a mission to get Carl off in the little segregated town of Canton. A Time to Kill was written by John Grisham, and was published in 1989. Seven years later it was released to theaters, directed by Joel Schumacher. The movie has similar characters, scenes, and same overall plot as the novel has, but also has many differences. The novel A Time to Kill later became a movie that had many similarities from the characters and scenes described in the novel, but many differences occur between important scenes and missing characters that did not make it into the movie.
The Diary of Anne Frank takes place Amsterdam, Netherlands. In the book Anne and her family are Jews in World War II. Because of the oppression of the Jews, Anne and her family are forced to go into hiding. Anne, her mom Edith, her dad Otto, her sister Margot, Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan, Peter Van Daan, and Mr. Dussel. In the beginning of the story, Anne is very emotional because she had to leave her friends and old life behind. Our class witnessed two different versions of the story, a play and a movie, but even though these are based off of the same book, they have several differences and similarities.
In my opinion there are a lot of comparisons between the film and the book, but there are also differences between them too, but also they have impacted the audience in both the film and the
Alabama Moon is about a boy named Moon Blake (dubbed Alabama Moon by the general public), a recently orphaned boy. For his whole life, he and his father have lived together in the forest, away from the government. Now he's ten years old, with only what his father taught him and told him to do: 1. How to survive in the wilderness without having to rely on others, 2. Run away from the law (for him, the other way of saying “government”), 3. Go to Alaska.
The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas. If they didn’t put the Grinch’s hate for Christmas in both the book and, he would have no reason to steal Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a very good movie. The second comparison between the book and the movie was Who’s love for Christmas. This is very important because the it is the Who’s love for Christmas that causes the Grinch's hate for
Everyone at some point has felt envious of their bestfriend. In the novel, “A Separate Peace”, envy leads to many problems and changes in the film. Phineas is a main character that is bestfriends with Gene; he is athletic, a leader, and goes by Finny. Leper is a student that is viewed as weird. When he came back from the war he is portrayed differently in the film than in the book. Gene is the protagonist, intelligent, and is best friends with Finny. The story takes place at Devon high school, with the students becoming seniors . In the novel and the film “A Separate Peace”, some differences that were made are the beginning scene, Leper’s life after the war, and the last scene.
There was a book and movie on That Was Then, This Is Now by S. E. Hinton. There were a lot of significant differences in the movie compared to the book. Mark in the book was completely different from the book. Mark in the book was seen as a stupid kid, while in the movie he seemed as if he was the victim. Bryon in the book was an ok person, while in the book he was just a punk.
There are some clear differences and similarities between the three Novels/Films that have been used to today's current modern American society. This was found in the Technology of Fahrenheit 451, a different story, Harrison Bergeron had a huge difference in citizens but it also had some small similarities. In the story The Lost Years of Merlin, the Jews were looked down upon for their beliefs, and the witches and wizards also.
