Is there ever a time that a movie is the same as the book? Well not in The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin which the GLMS sixth grade students read and watched. But in most movies based of of books a lot of key details are left out. The students tried to figure out who murdered Sam Westing. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth noting.

Stephen King, one of the many famous movie makers and book writers once said, “Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different”.

These details include changes to the script to make it more understandable. The changes to the script also make the movie more realistic and modern.
George Orwell 's novel 1985, was adapted into a movie, directed by Michael Radford. The movie coincidentally came out in the year 1984 and starred John Hurt. The movie received a 7.2 out of 10 on IMDb, a popular movie rating site,which is a higher rating than most of today 's movies. Although the movie did do alright to the general public, the movie did have some flaws when compared to Orwell 's original writings. The movie did not include all of the same details, it went very quickly over many of the events and was difficult to get into and understand for those who haven 't read the book.
The book Fahrenheit 451 was turned into a movie which included many similarities and differences from the book. The biggest difference was Clarisse in general because she was a teacher instead of a student, she never died when it was said she did, and her overall character was a little off due to these simple changes. There was also no war in the movie, which made it so that there was no bombing at the end so the city wasn’t destroyed. Faber also wasn’t in the movie, although he was a major character in the book because of his influence over Montag. While there were many differences there were also similarities, but they were mostly small details. The general plot was of course the same, but there was also how Montag’s opinion of the society changed over the course of the movie.
As we can see in the characteristic quotes they show us how Mr.Blessington always put pressure on his students and made insults to them for living in a low income community and made them feel as if they are not welcomed outside their neighborhood and how the society wouldn’t accept them just for being “poor”. Meanwhile the conflict quotes quotes shows how the students get into the game that Mr.Blessington has installed for them, which makes them feel as if they are labeled in society and how they must become what people think they are in order to fit in. But the students will soon find out that all that was a paper background created by Mr.Blessington to fool them to believe that they were just rapist and criminals to stop them from becoming good citizens and to stop them from growing even more educationally and making their dreams a reality. Anything in this world can be achieved by hard work and determination and by breaking the social barriers you can let other people see that they can’t judge someone by their race nor the place they live in but by the words and actions of that person you can determine who they are. Don’t ever let no

Films that are based off books create a scene for the audience while bringing the words on the paper to life. They usually address the same issues as the original content, but adds additional details to stand out from the book. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a book that was transformed into a movie in 1966. The book and film discuss similar themes such as censorship, dystopian society, and propaganda, but does different work with the same story of books being destroyed in a society. This is especially true when considering how the film introduces new ideas, eliminates characters, and changes important scenes from the book.
I believe that the movie Sorry Wrong Number was better than the reading and here's why. While reading the script of the play it didn't create that good of suspense. First example is when Mrs.Stevenson called her husband but hen overheard the killers was more suspenseful.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) This was more suspenseful than the text because you can see her reaction. My second piece of evidence is Mrs.Stevenson heard the killer in the house you could see the suspense.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) You could see the suspense because how scared she was. My last piece of evidence is when she died at the end it made the audience more into it and question.(SWN, Lucille Fletcher) This made the movie better because you could actually see what happened when she died.That is how suspense makes the movie better.
My final is about the difference between the book and the movie “The Outsiders.” This next paragraph is about the description difference between the book and movie. Then the paragraph after that will be about the description of the background or cars that the characters drive or live in. I think that the move and the book where basted of the same story but I think that when the directors made the movie with some different cars or house that can change the movie or they put different things in it so that the movie will look better. Altogether the movie and the book were pretty good and had good meaning to it about want to think of life and it’s alright to not be tough and hard.
It is crazy to think how pop culture can point to the things it works so hard to reject, but in the case of Divergent by Veronica Roth, parallels between it and the gospel abound. Divergent is set in a dystopian Chicago in which the citizens are divided into 5 factions; the brave, the selfless, the intelligent, the honest and the kind. The story follows Tris Prior, a sixteen year old girl who realizes her Divergence, or possession of characteristics of more than one faction. The novel and film adaption of Divergent include many similarities to the gospel, notably the emphasis on a choice of commitment, the concept that we need more than one characteristic to grow, that salvation is brought about through sacrifice, and that humankind is at its heart, evil.
