Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
64, Gale, 1991. Literary Sources, Accessed 8 Nov. 2017. William Baurecht is able to show how Chief Bromden's schizophrenic episode altered the story’s plot. Baurchet first illustrates how Bromden and McMurphy’s relationship has a direct connection to the American culture. William explains how the two men represent true love even though it was a difficult topic to discuss at the time.
Doe Zantamata, an American author, once said, “Good friends help you find the most important things when you have lost them...your smile, your hope, and your courage.” In Frank Darabont’s film The Shawshank Redemption, hope and friendship are a large part of the characters’ lives, as they are inmates in the Shawshank prison. Andy is a newcomer and intrigues Red, an inmate who has been in the prison for a long time. Although Red is not sure what to think of him at first, they soon become good friends. Someone’s identity not only shapes that individual, but also the friendships one makes. Andy and Red’s contradicting identities draw them towards each other and transform their lives forever through their unique friendship.
He gives epic imagery and diction to describe the events to which are happening to the Little G.P.s. He describes this historical event as if it was straight out of a horror or action movie. It really draws in the reader and does not let go. The picture Egan paints is so good, that at time it feel as if you’re there with the Little G.P.s, trying to make a task force out of scraps. A task force full of member from prisons and soldiers.
The prominent banker’s merit allows him to deviate amongst his fellow inmates. This deviance refers to the defining features of Andy and the very reasons as to why he was treated differently apart from the other prisoners. The functionalist theory is keenly displayed from the character Brooks and his position in prison. This theory advocates the theory that each and every part of society must all harmonize and work together in order to maintain stability within the whole system. Without one element, the system is no longer functioning
The Conspirator was written with an intended audience of people interested in history and the philosophy of historical events. The music was simple cords played to add drama and move the movie from scene to scene. Solomon stuck to the facts; the audience had to come up with our own conclusion of guilt or innocence. Solomon did not add a lot of unnecessary drama he did however add social events and dialog between the main players to give perspective on society’s beliefs and customs in 1865. The story is told from the perspective of Frederick Aiken, Surratt’s lawyer but we do not lose sight that the story is about Mary Surratt, the legal system and culture of the
Books and movies will normally be different in many ways. More often people who read the book first will hate the movie with a strong passion. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak had come out as a movie in 2013 but was praised and scorned heavily by people of all kinds. Some people who read the book were fairly pleased, and some weren’t due to the few parts that lack information. Though it was a decent movie, that stood, not exactly, close to the book.
Example; in the short movie the unnamed narrator was working for the old man. And, in the short story the unrevealed narrator loved the old man, but his evil eye was so unappealing and a threat to him. My opinion on the movie and book. These stories will not have you snore, it involves a lot of thinking and the way Edgar Allan Poe (the author) describe himself in the book, had my jaws drop! The movie (1941) is amazing, again it's a lot of logical thinking.
The Shawshank redemption is about much more than just a young banker spending many years of his life in prison. It shows us the struggles inmates go through to adapt to an environment as harsh as prisons and how creating friendships with others helps the men get through the rough patches. The film demonstrates that prison is a world of its own, with its own rules and how many men struggle to fit back into society when they are released. Shawshank Redemption’s director, Frank Darabont, uses many brilliant film techniques to capture key scenes. A few examples of these are: when Andy first arrives at Shawshank an establishing shot is used to show the prison.
He gives off this unique unorthodox dark style and theme of everything is not what it seems,or don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He uses lighting and editing techniques in his scenes to give you movies that shed a new light on the way we perceive the characters and scenes. Mr.Burton uses lighting in all of his movies to really show you it’s his movies because the way he uses it adds a spin to how we view it. In Charlie in the Chocolate Factory he portrays Charlie’s house as a dark dilapidated building that looks abandon like no one could live there or something could be lurking there. When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters.
