Scott Fitzgerald. Unreliable circumstances molds an untrustworthy and dishonest narrator, a variation from the book to the movie to create a more dramatic scene, changes how the audience feels about Daisy and Gatsby’s relationship. A small rewrite by director Baz Luhrmann creates a happy ending that was never originally envisioned affects the mood of the audiences. By comparing and contrasting three very important scenes to the development of the plot, it is clear to see how the changes made by director Baz Luhrmann did not give the outstanding representation that The Great Gatsby
To Kill A Mockingbird: Read it, Don’t Watch it. Have you ever watched the movie adaptation of a book, only to find that the book is far superior to it’s movie counterpart? Oftentimes when a book is adapted into a movie, there are some differences between the two. Sometimes the differences are subtle, but other times the differences are dramatic and can affect the development of the story. An example of this is the movie adaptation of the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
In my opinion think Hatchet does a better job of telling the story than A cry in the wild. I believe this because the narrator gives more details when he describe when Brian got into the plane.The narrator said Brian needed to build a raft.For example,the narrator said “ Brian build a raft “on page 159. In the movie it didn’t really show Brian building the raft. The movie didn’t show when Brian use shoelace to build the raft. The book also did a better job of showing the dead pilot.
Other changes had no effect on the story because they were just items added in for dramatic effect, like Gatsby’s aggression towards Tom after Tom told him they were not equal. I feel like if I would have watched the movie first and then read the book the changes would seem much more

The differences between the movie and book were added to make the adventure more entertaining. The Pale Orc was added to tell more about Thorin's past, and to give the audience a reocurring protagonist to root against. The Eagle Rescue scene was changed so Thorin would gain respect for Bilbo, and so Bilbo could break down the barrier of being a coward, and become the hero.
While the movie is great it strays pretty far from the actual story. Pocahontas the movie and the real Pocahontas has a lot of similarities and differences.

The “Star Wars” movies, by George Lucas, show a heroic journey through a group of main characters, as they fight for the light side against the dark side. Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, shows a journey of a buddhist, who leaves his home in search of enlightenment and becoming one with what surrounds him. The Star Wars movies contains a more entertaining plot than Siddhartha because it fosters more creative thinking/imagination, unlike a book, which exhausts imagination. Movies also consume less time, leaving the viewer feel good about spending their time watching a movie. Lastly, the saga is very tied in with the Western culture’s idea of a heroic journey and this idea is spread around the world making a lot of people used to experiencing it.
For example, when Atticus got spit on by Bob Ewell in the movie he makes a big deal about it. In the book, he rubs it off to show that there are still good qualities in bad people. This scene shows the importance of Good vs. Evil in the book and how in the movie they didn’t show Atticus’s, kind heart. Atticus would be represented on the Good side of the theme, but in the movie, they
The use of a pale actor who does not directly fit this stereotype it adds to the movie. The setting of this movie is North, but the way that it is portrayed it seems to be an alien like world (Magennis). Historically, it is very difficult to find the middle of a film while still keeping the history apart of the movie. The mixture of legends and myths are more common placed into movies by the directors and creators.
