Both films had similarities to the novel, The Great Gatsby. Although the storylines were not exactly alike, the characters had the same attitude and personality toward people and disputes that occurred. Luhrmann 's adaptation of Fitzgerald 's novel, The Great Gatsby, stated accurate on the development of the characters and their personalities as well as their attitude. Allen’s homage on Fitzgerald 's novel occurred similar to stating the characters personalities and attitudes just with different characters. Both films created some sort of Gatsby story in some way which made the films and novel come together.
In fact, it blew my mind! One aspect of this story that made it so exceptional for me was the style of writing. The majority of his sentences were short and to the point. Instead of being choppy and frustrating, the sentences somehow captured my attention. Weir’s brief sentences created strong pictures without using much expressive language; in fact, his story frequently composed of dialogue such as "Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me,” which painted a clear picture in twelve words.
In the quote Beowulf is boasting and smack talking and Grendel doesn 't do this much at all. So this is clearly conveying in my opinion that that Beowulf has a chance to stop the fighting and madness but he continues to boast and stir Grendel up. The final reason that the humans are the real animals is that in the novel it states, “All the bands did the same thing. In time I began to be more amused than revolted by what they threatened. It didn 't matter to me
Bittering’s motivation from when he decides to build a rocket till the end. As Mr. Bittering continued his construction of the escape rocket along with two of his friends, he slows down the rate of the construction and is constantly having questions about his motivation as the surrounding events become more and more clear. There is a part of him that just wants to quit and give in but his human side’s moral is too strong to give in without a fight. Eventually though that part of him, the Martian part, takes over and his former identity is erased. As he surrenders to the overwhelming influence of Mars he says, “We’ll go back to town maybe next year or the year after, or the year after that” indicating that he has no motivation or reason for returning to the life of an Earth man.
Which is when one of the characters, named Captain Beatty told her, “‘Where’s your common sense? None of those books agree with each other…’ Beatty flicked his fingers to spark the kerosene” The quote and action that the character did showed that, for him, burning is a simple task with no feelings behind it. Later in in the book, that changes, he states his true feelings about action of burning. Like it says in page, 109 where Beatty tells Montag, “What is fire? It’s a mystery.
Reading the 1959 play and the 2008 movie, I have realized certain similarities and differences in how the story plays out. Both versions of A Raisin in the Sun are parallel in that the unique relationships between the characters and the vibrant personalities of each character are portrayed similarly. The elements of the plot structure – the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution - were also remained constant in both versions of A Raisin in the Sun. In both the play and the movie, we can see that the unique relationships between the communications between characters are portrayed in similar tones and body languages. They argue about the same things and resolve their problems in similar ways.
The movie’s tendency to cut anything not deemed an important event also makes it seem that Ender is unaffected by most of the events that occur. In the book, it is made completely clear that the system of both the Battle School and Command School are breaking Ender down, ultimately demonstrated by Ender being completely bedridden after the Third Invasion due to everything he’s endured. This also happens with the movie’s presentation of the characters, with more characters being sympathetic to Ender. This completely overrides a plot point in the book,
In the film Do The Right Thing, the significance of Radio Raheem's character is better understood after his death. We see very little of him throughout the film and we learn little about his background, unlike some of the other characters. Whenever we see him in a film he is walking with his radio playing “Fight the Power” by the rap group Public Enemy. In most of his scene he comes off as a very angry individual and we begin to see who he respects and who he doesn’t. The lyrics in one part says, “Our freedom of speech is freedom or death, We've got to fight the powers that be” which can indicate how he let’s the music speak for him.
However, Kinnear’s portrayal is not as good as Kenneth Branagh’s, as Kinnear fails to capture Hamlet’s anguish and rage in his expressions as well as Branagh does. Kinnear’s voice in the soliloquy is very clear with a sad tone expressing Hamlet’s displeasure of his mother’s marriage. His bodily movements from slamming his hands on a table to shrugging at Cornelius when compared to Hamlet’s father all express Hamlet’s feelings effectively, yet despite this Kinnear is missing something. Kinnear lacks the brimming rage that Branagh displays throughout his soliloquy by keeping a disapproving sneer as he talks about the marriage of Hamlet’s mother. By failing to show Hamlet’s teenage emotions ready to break free and try to fix the recent marriage, Kinnear expresses a less passionate Hamlet which is inferior to
One noticeable difference is the amount of narrative in each medium, as both the play and radio drama has a less narrative compared to the screenplay. In addition, the three mediums also express the emotions of the characters differently. One example of this is seen in Doescher’s play, “O be thou safe, dear R2, and return! For thou wouldst not that my existence should become a bore! O Fate, I prithee, keep them safe-my Master and my only friend-else should I find a lonely, tragic end” (Doescher 150).
