Love is the most powerful emotion, making it the most dangerous. Taming of the shrew written by William Shakespeare in the late 16th Century, has had many different adaptations two of which are: The 1967 version of Taming of the shrew directed by Franco Zeffirelli and the cult classic 1999 version 10 things I hate about you both of which shine and interesting light on the play is it an act of misogyny or an act of a man liberating a woman from society. I believe that it is an act of misogyny and will be discussing this in the following presentation through the comparison of both films. In Franco Zefferelli’s version of Taming of the shrew there were many characters, but as for the difference in time periods there are only few that I would resonate with, for that reason I chose the character Bianca, as in Taming of the shrew (1967) she is very stuck up and obnoxious, sure she wants to marry, but it 's because of her constant complaining that gives me this opinion. Her 10 things I hate about you counterpart is also unbearable and complains more than her 1967 character and she is always getting angry or whiney if it means trying to be normal.
He should be somewhat more menacing and angry, like in the book, rather than acting very creepy. He is immensely powerful in the books, and uses that to his advantage, but flaunts it very uncharacteristically in the movie in order to throw off the main character. One may describe him as a puppeteer of sorts. The actors cast in the movie don’t look like the book describes the characters. The only actor that really did well was the man who played Brom.
A commonality shared with almost all movies that are based off a book or comic, is the comment “ the book is always better” this stems from the feelings of disappointment that many feel when the movie doesn 't get something exactly right. This is because, the movie and the book are drastically different, mostly because of the different time period and background of the author and the director. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and its movie adaptation are an example of the differences In the movie and the book the romantic relationship between Ichabod and Katrina evolved differently, the movie expands upon it, while in the book it falls flat. The book’s view on their romance shows it as merely a means to an end for Ichabod, he falls in love not with
The exciting as well as renowned novel, The Hound of The Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has its contrasts with the 2002 BBC feature. Many differences were made to the film version, including changes to the characters along with the pacing. The quick pacing had a dramatic negative effect on the film, because it made it harder to bond with characters, deleted important plot points, as well as took away from suspense. The fast pace of the movie made it harder to understand, moreover, it was harder to bond with the characters. It is harder to understand what Mr. Barrymore and his wife are going through in the film because it does not explain most of their problems to a full extent.
Why is The Hunger Games a notoriously bad movie-to-film adaption? When one claims that a film adaption of a movie isn’t good, they usually aren’t claiming the movie itself isn’t good—usually, the moviegoer is claiming that the adaption wasn’t good. Or rather, that the director made changes from print-to-screen that the viewer didn’t like. In the film adaptation of “1408,” the director made changes from the short story to add suspense, omit unnecessary details, and give Mike Enslin a rich emotional background. The film has some additions and changes that were made to create suspense.
One definitely can understand how desperate he is, but the audience never fully identifies with him as a character. Find ways to make Dom more emotionally engaging. He can be clearly flawed, but he has to connect with the audience. In the dark comedy, TO DIE FOR, even though the protagonist, Suzanne Stone, is a wicked person, there’s something very quirky and likable about her. She’s psychologically twisted, yet the character connects with the audience.
It is true living in the borderlands as what I have absurd is harsh, but I also know that it is not always the case. This movie I would recommend to everyone because at the end of the day we all learn something knew. It opens ones eyes up and realize that, “Hey the United States is also a corrupt country just like any other.” The director and producer as well did a phenomenal job in capturing and making one feel like if we where there all along. Sicario is a movie I will never

The Holocaust, slavery, and the World Wars are examples of horrible events that led people to be in situations which they had to do certain things they were not so proud of. Knowingly committing these wrongful acts to avoid danger or risk is called willful ignorance.

Ultimately, the decisions made by the various characters of the Counterfeiter’s resulted in survival yet along the way, made them feel as if they were shameful and criminals.
“It is too full o’ the milk of human kindness, To catch the nearest way.” (Act 1, Scene 5) Even Lady Macbeth is aware of Macbeth’s seemingly inability to kill in cold blood. This contrast in the characters sets up a problem that may come up later in the story. Macbeth knows what the Weird Sisters had prophecized, and that was that he
