The scene at Myrtle and Tom’s apartment seemed slightly overdone. The book never said that the party became wild and out of control, just that Nick and the others drank to the point of intoxication. The modern music mixed into the movie stands out. The movie, like the book, is set in the 1920’s era. Nevertheless, the audience listens to Jay-Z, Lana
Valencia, who epitomizes the average housewife, also represents the unexpressed discontentment of many married couples. She loves Billy excessively, but he does not reciprocate this. Billy continues to have the same “so it goes” attitude and is both indifferent and impassive to her death. This emotionless outlook substantiates the fact that he marries her purely for the sake of having a significant other, and does not genuinely love her. Upon thinking about their marriage together
From her upstairs room at the gas station, Myrtle saw an approaching car. Mistakenly believing Tom had returned for her, she ran out towards the car, but was struck and killed instantly. Panicked, Daisy drove away from the scene of the accident. When the rest of us arrived at the crime scene, Tom told George that it was Gatsby's car that killed
Naked as a yard dog, kissing him. Him dead and white and puffy and skinny, and she had his fingers in her mouth”” (73). The strange “love” that Ruth possesses for Dr. Foster not only alienates her from Macon and her family more than she already is, but forces her to live an emotionless, depressing life. Her only attempt to retain emotions comes though Milkman as Macon has already given up on her. This is another disgusting act of incest by Ruth which she sees as “love.” Her breaking point comes when Freddie points out that breastfeeding her son at the age of twelve is wrong and strange.
They think Colin was sick and had a fever they put him in an ice bath but he was just getting heathier because he was going outside it didn’t happen in the book just in the book. In the beginning of the book of the secret garden they describe Mary as a very ugly kid but in the movie she isn’t ugly at all. Mary sounded very rude in the book but in the movie she was actually not rude and almost pleasant. In the movie Mary doesn’t seem to care that much about India in the book she seems to care more about her country. They make it seem that Mary and Colin love each other but they didn’t love each other in the book.
Some examples were when the movie showed Walters meeting with his friends, in the bar. Another example is when it shows the hallway and the outside side of the apartment. The play did talk about it but never showed it. The last contrast is that the movie added scenes. Some of the scenes the movie added are when the family goes to see the new house they are buy, another is when Ruth goes to see the doctor.
By knowing the new movie by heart, the older film was painfully long and not played in the same order as the current Gatsby or book. The original film skipped around and extended parts not seen before to movie watchers. It focused on the suicide more than the killing of Myrtle. Another big part of the story line is Nick narrates the story through his journal as in he is writing this novel. Within both moves, Gatsby is portrayed the same.
Also along with the birthday, at Freaks birthday party in the book he has a seizure, the movie never has Freak get a seizure. In the book, Max runs to the medical building to find Freak and breaks the door, in the movie Max ends up in a place filled with people doing laundry. There are lots of little things to that were different like the movie started the setting in school and moved it to the summertime, whereas in the book we started the setting in the summertime and moved it to the school. The book Freak the Mighty and the movie The Mighty are one of my favorite school books/movie. I recommend this book for any age and someone who likes thrill, adventure, or a good book seeker.
This reaction is strange because it is though that Daisy would have cried tears of joy that Gatsby is now back while she was at Nick’s house for tea and not over his materialistic objects in his home. Daisy is crying over his money and how she had the opportunity to wait for Gatsby years ago but instead married Tom. Since Tom was from old money and Daisy had knowledge that he could support her expensive and shallow lifestyle that she has been catered to her entire life. Another character that represents the corruption throughout the novella is Tom Buchanan. He flourishes in a lifestyle of absurd wealth empty of all morals.
He searched for cameras but he failed to see even one. But as he watched Frog pouring the boiled water into the teapot, he realized that Frog’s movements were really how genuine frogs move. When they two were already sitting in the kitchen table, Frog apologized and started to explain why he barged in without Katagiri’s knowledge. Frog told Katagiri his mission to save Tokyo from destruction. But still, Katagiri felt that it was all a joke and could not understand what Frog was saying so he first checked and made sure what or who Frog really was.
