The book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has a lot of similarities to the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory but not so many differences.On, the country the book had Willy Wonka wear a black top hat and a cane. But in the movie they had him wear a tan top hat and a cane. In the book dad had told them about the five golden tickets that are around the world. But in the movie a student from the classroom at school had told them about the five golden tickets that Willy Wonka had sent out. In the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie goes to the factory on February 1st and on the other hand they had gone to the factory on October 1st. Even through the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the movie Willy Wonka and the
The short story “The Pedestrian,” by Ray Bradbury, and the film have many similarities between the two accounts. The main plot of both stories involve Mead taking his routinely night walk. In the short story he is taking his walk by himself before he is pulled over by a robocop (Bradbury 49). This is important because it is the main conflict of both stories. In the films story’s Mead was also taken away for going on a walk, an action that was once done in the past. He was also taken to a physiological ward, in both stories for his regressive tendencies (Alin Bollinger). He was brought to that place because he was not a tool of his own tools. These instances show importance because it interferes with Mead's walk and, it's how the story is resolved.
In Ray Bradbury’s short story “The Pedestrian”, the motifs of the story were appeared a lot of times. Motifs always repeat in the story and give a dominant central idea to strengthen the theme. By reading the motifs in the story, we could learn more about the things that the writer wants to tell us. In this story, there are lots of words of motifs; for examples, silence, alone, darkness, empty and frozen. Those motifs shows the lacking of inspiration and excitement in the story and determines the dark keynote of the story. Also, there are lots of descriptions of motifs in the story, such as the description of the rusty smelling of the lightbulb, or the description of the smelling of the little jail. Those motifs all shows how pedestrian it
My favorite quote was“Stay gold Ponyboy” which means Do not go tuff and stay like yourself because you are once in a lifetime.My opinion of both the movie and the book are pretty good.The book was only a little better because it was longer and it had more parts on the other hand the movie you can hear and see more and feel more when you can actually picture it.While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the Movie was more effective in telling the story.
Have you heard the famous speech by Joshua Chamberlain that convinced 114 mutineers to rejoin the fight for freedom. Some have said that it was the speech that changed the entire Civil War. Chamberlain is well known for his courage when he led the 20th Maine regiment that fought in the Battle of Gettysburg. The 20th regiment gaining the mutineers gave the North momentum which could’ve been the turning point in the Civil War. Throughout analyzing the speech the reader can tell that the speech was genuine and inspirational which are words that you usually don’t associate with war.
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social
How well can a director put a book into action as a movie? After reading the book The Color Purple by Alice Walker and watching the movie The Color Purple directed by Steven Spielberg, I was given both sides of the story written and the screen write. Contrasting the two together personally is quite tricky because both the book and the movie were great to take part in. However some events in the book were obviously different when watching the movie.
In this short story of The Pedestrian, Bradbury develops a society of the advancement of technology can destroy the uniqueness in this dystopian story. The society in this story has been taken over by technology, instead of people taking night strolls or walking their dogs; they would rather stay home and occupy themselves with something that involves watching a “viewing screen”. Since this has happened, walking seems like an oddity because no one does it anymore.
Suspicion can be fascinating but haunting. Since Victorian times, the suspicious death case of Sir Charles Baskerville in The Hound of the Baskerville has intrigued/compelled vast amounts of readers. However, recent audiences are more compelled to stories with a modern twist of horror and gruesomeness. Because of less main characters, a fast-paced plot, and the differing point of view of Atwood’s The Hound of the Baskervilles film adaptation, the film has a frightening, intriguing mood with a new perspective compared to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original novel.
In this film called The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and a book called Jasper Jones written by Craig Silvey they will be comparing and contrasting the use of themes in the film and the book. Revenge in The Dressmaker happens when Tilly burned the town; in Jasper Jones Eliza burned her home. Then in Family Tilly and Molly has a rough start but when Tilly came back they turned out to be happy with each other, while in Jasper Jones Charlies mum and Charlie are happy at the start but went downhill very quickly when Laura disappeared. The themes are revenge, death, and family.
In the "Pedestrian" Bradbury uses imagery, simile and metaphor to develop the futuristic setting and the mood so that the reader better understands where Mr.Mead is and what he see's. This helps the reader find different ways to understand what they are reading. It helps them draw a really clear picture in their head as
The “ Outsiders” movie and novel are awkward and interesting. Upon watching both they appeared to be somewhat similar. However, after finishing the movie and having time to reflect they have distinct differences.
Books and movies have been around for many years and lately movie directors have been making more and more movies based off of books. Most people do not know that around 50% of movies are based off of books. Although, it really depends on what people mean when a movie is “based” off a book. Some directors say a movie is based off a book, but has a different plot and seems totally different. So, in order to keep true to the book, directors keep the plot relatively the same, but there are a few times they decide to change the message entirely by changing just a few key events. An example of this is the short story “Harrison Bergeron” written by Kurt Vonnegut and the film 2081 directed by Chandler Tuttle. Although the short film if based off of
The 1951 original written work by Ray Bradbury (“The Pedestrian”) was, at some point in time, later adapted into a short film. Although both the film and short story shared many of the same elements, there were still several noticeably apparent differences; for one, the film had chosen to introduce an entirely new character into the plot. Serving as a contrasting figure for Mead - a “foil”, of some sorts - Robert “Bob” Stockwell had assisted in providing much more insight in the dystopian world (i.e. experiencing the “outside” world after being inside so long, as was seen in the film). Whereas in the original story, no such insight was provided - Mead was, instead, only just an ordinary individual (unintentionally) caught amidst the confines
The PBS article on the film adaptation discusses the difference between written text and the film and the struggle of adapting a book into a movie. The major difference between books and the film is that the visual images stimulate our perceptions directly while written words do this indirectly. Film is also very limited, film must cut out certain events that happened in a book to make it fit into a two or three hour movie. The filmmaker of a movie must build off their own material and choose and change things. For example, “the meaning of a novel is only controlled by one person, the author, while the meaning we get from a film is the result of a collaborative effort” (PBS). In the Pedestrian by Ray Bradbury, the short story compared
