Now you know why the book and movie of Ender’s Game are so different and why the book is better. The movie adds unnecessary parts to it like ender when Ender had gotten tranquilized. It takes out many important parts in the movie like when Ender goes to salamander army. It even uses some important parts, but switches important things like dialogue, action, and even points of time. I thought that these were good reasons why the book is so different from the
For example one difference is that the film opens with Ponyboy Curtis writing his theme, and in the book it starts with Pony getting jumped by some Socs
In the book Beowulf and the movie the 13th warrior, there are many differences and similarities.The differences is the religion aspect and the monster they were fighting.The similarity is that they both fought the monster at the same place. In the essay I will talk more about the similarity and the differences.It is quite interesting what all similarities and differences that there are.
In the film Ender’s Game, his timeline as an individual is not even close to the novel, in the book Ender ages at a slower rate, when we first meet ender he is six years old and we witness his maturity first hand whereas in the movie when we are introduced to Ender he is already almost a teenager. Likability is greater in the novel because we got to witness Ender mature, not so much in the movie. Furthermore, the movie strays away from Demosthenes and Locke, they play a foundational role in the novel, leaving this in the movie would have given more
React to the author himself: Orson Scott Card has stated that, “Children are a perpetual, self-renewing underclass, helpless to escape from the decisions of adults until they become adults themselves.” Does Ender’s Game prove or disprove this opinion?
In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers.The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation. In Ender’s Game, Card argues that lies can be justified for the greater good of an individual.
For example, in the book, only one person drowns Pony, but in the movie, three people drowned him. This is different because in the book Pony is being drowned at the water fountain by only one person.On the other hand in the movie Pony is getting drowned by three people instead of one like it is in the story. Another comparison between the book and the movie would be when Ponyboy goes to court and doesn’t testify in the book, but in the movie he does.These are different because in the book when Pony has to go to court for the murder of Bob he doesn’t testify in the movie when he goes to court he does testify. There are many simularities and differences in the book and movie " The
In my opinion there are a lot of comparisons between the film and the book, but there are also differences between them too, but also they have impacted the audience in both the film and the
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.
Is Ender’s brilliance something to be proud of or to be feared of. Will Ender live up to the expectations that other people have for him or will he disappoint them all .
A utopia is supposed to be a perfect world, yet there are rarely any true utopias. Ender’s Game begins with a utopic society, where the government pits Earth against the nasty and evil buggers. Throughout Ender 's Game, written by Orson Scott Card, the reader follows the main protagonist, Ender, from his journey as a young boy on Earth to the hopes of being the next great commander in the fight against the buggers. In his journey, Ender endures multiple occasions of adversity, with the root of the problems coming from the isolation and loneliness that the government and army put him through. This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality.
This lessens the scope of how much the International Fleet has been lying to Ender, leading to the reveal being less dramatic. The movie also completely erases the Locke and Demosthenes subplot, removes the epilogue of Ender moving to a colony with Valentine, and then replaces it with Ender finding the queen bugger’s egg on the same planet as the Command School and leaving to find a safe home for it. This also gets rid of the parallel between Ender and Peter at the end of the book, where it’s pointed out that in spite of Peter being portrayed as exceedingly cruel, he prevents the war on Earth which saves millions of lives. Ender kills billions of buggers in the Third Invasion, almost wiping out their race completely, despite being described as gentle and not wanting to hurt anyone. 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,
Everyone should be able to control its own life. Sadly, not everybody can do so. Some people get their life controlled by others. Controlling one’s life means to have the power to choose what you are going to do in any situation. In the science-fiction novel Enders Game the statement “Nobody controls its own life” is true. There is a lot of evidence to show that the thesis is true. I agree with the thesis because of the way the plot unfolds, what happens in battle school and what is said about the topic in the book.
The main plot is George and Lennie's struggle to achieve the American Dream. The movie follows the book except for two main scenes. At the end, the producer added the scene of George reminiscing about his life with Lennie while tragic music is playing. This is probably added for drama as in a movie it's more important than in a book. In a book it's left up to your imagination to visualize what is going on. Another example, is the chase at Weed. In the book there is just a scene of George talking about it, while in the movie they show the chase. This is another example of the director adding excitement to a movie. These events don't really affect the plot though. In the movie though George is seen crying before he shoots Lennie. This doesn't occur in the book. It makes George seem more innocent and sympathetic. Although the plot and theme are similar the characters are portrayed differently in
Innumerable volumes of people portray power as one’s capacity to exhibit their potency; their unquenchable thirst for the dominion over all. Formidable and influential flawlessly depicts the being this definition conveys, a being considerably similar to Ender Wiggin. To the lionizing eyes of Earth, he is a child deity who possessed power abundant enough to exterminate an entire extraterrestrial race, but in truth, he is a boy, rupturing from his plethora of errors. In Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card
