Sam Westing had a mistake brought to play The Westing Game in the novel, but not in the movie. There are some differences between The Westing Game novel and movie. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth noting. For example one big similarity is when Turtle wins The Westing Game in both movie and novel.
There were language and adult jokes sprinkled every once in a while, but that helped to make the movie more real. The Guardian published an article called “My Favourite Film: The Goonies” which says “My favourite Goonies trivia is the story that relates the first time the child actors saw the full-scale pirate ship, which they were banned from seeing prior to shooting. Their all-too-real shouts of "holy s***!" were considered too obscene to include, but for me they sum up my feelings, aged seven or eight, when first watching the film.” While there were some smaller parts that didn’t add up realistically, the details made up for it. The kids swearing one or two times shows real-world experiences and connections.
Although there are silent films, sound adds a whole different aspect. Non Diegetic sounds create emotion through what type of music is playing. Deep toned sounds create a bad vibe for villains or bad guys while light, upbeat sounds create good vibes and joy for heroes or good guys. For example, in the movie “Edward Scissorhands,” Director Burton uses Non Diegetic sound in the scene where
When we think of heroes we often think of a masked vigilanty or a cape crusader swooping down from the heavens and saving the day. Although heroes come in many shapes and sizes, they also tend to come from different backgrounds. The people of the United States pride themselves with freedom and equality. However, still to this day there is a struggle with discrimination. Matt Zoller Seitz’s article “The Offensive Movie Cliché That Won’t Die” definitely sparked some interest and was definitely right when it came to the offensive issue most people do not see.
Was stronger at retelling The Odyssey by Homer due to the close following of the original storyline and character portrayals. Though The SpongeBob Movie was enjoyable to watch, the great myth is almost unrecognizable. It was not consistent in the retelling, and the purpose of the characters were difficult to understand. As a result of this, the journey of The Odyssey was better retold through O, Brother Where Art
Robert Cormier wrote The Chocolate War, inspired by his son who refused to sell chocolates in a school sale. The book was published in 1974 and garnered critical acclaim and notoriety. It was so reputable that a film adaptation of the novel followed in 1988. Although the movie was not as renowned as its literary counterpart, the two were destined for comparison as the author’s message was lost in the film adaptation of the novel. The book was more believable than its film adaptation because the movie’s alternate ending warped the main message, directorial choices changed the story’s credibility and its ending was illogical.
Well I have seen a lot of film versions and no stage versions, and since I like to have fun I will be talking about the differences between "A Christmas Carol" and "A Muppet Christmas Carol". Now besides the Muppets I would say the movie is very accurate, from the costume designs, to the story. They even add direct quotes from the book sometimes, but with every adaptations some changes were made here and there. Of course they had to cut some material out to make the movie a certain time, and they had to make the content a little more enjoyable for their modern audiences so they made the dialog a bit more "with the times". They also added some more personal choices like adding musical numbers which I find is very fitting for the story.
The first movie “Walt Disney’s Pocahontas” and the second movie is “The New World”. Both showed the journey of the colonists and the epic love story of Pocahontas and John Smith. But the New World did just a little better of a job at being more historically accurate. To begin with, the plots were very different in both of the movies but “The New World” is more accurate. In “Pocahontas” it showed her falling in love with John Smith and then saving him from dying.
Even though it lacked in the sense of logos, it is just a movie for entertainment purposes. In today’s world not all movies need to have logic to keep audiences amused. Any motion picture has its illogical aspects, otherwise they would be dull. This movie proves that with right amount of pathos and ethos, you can lure in a tremendous audience for years to
When people are asked to name some of the classic Christmas movies, they are quick to say movies such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964), Frosty the Snowman (1969), and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), but they forget to mention the dismal, chilling The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). But why is that, doesn’t Tim Burton still show the joy that Christmas brings, but in a slightly new perspective? Aren’t The Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas quite similar depictions of how some may deal with the “Christmas blues”? The Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas both originated as poems with rhythms similar to most Christmas poems. Tim Burton and Dr. Seuss both portray the cliché themes
Essay 5: Compare & Contrast As the leaves began to change their hues and the days started dwindling down to the end of November, a great injustice became evident to me. The great country that I so dearly love annually commits one of the most heinous crimes, at least by my standards, imaginable, skipping Thanksgiving. It happens every year. Usually, the festivities and preparations for Halloween begin sometime in September and remain strong until midnight on November 1st… then suddenly it’s Christmas.
