What Was Better the Book or the Movie? Gavin Hood 's adaptation of Orson Card’s book Ender’s game is a great representation of awesomeness.Ender wiggin played by Asa Butterfield is an example of pure genius but however some of the details are off such as him at graduation battle instead of his toon being in different rooms, they are right there with him throughout the whole battle when they destroyed the whole bugger planet.Another detail that was left out of the book is the chapters in the book that were just all about Valentine and Peter.I think this is good for the movie because in the book it was kind of long and drug out.If they put this in the Movie it would make it longer and most likely lose the audience!Another key detail that I think

After a few days when the drafting started some of the men would come back to the USA to get drafted into Vietnam War. One of the men stayed at the Lodge with Elroy Berdahl. But finally they both came to go to war because they didn 't want to run away no more. The reason Tim O’Brien wrote the book, The Things They Carried, was to tell people what it was like in the war, because O’Brien was in the Vietnam war himself. The themes that I chose the themes, Morality and Mortality and Death was because I thought they had the most meaning, because many people die during wars and things like
Rock n’ roll, television, movies, mystery novels, even Shakespeare, all of these things were once believed to be a major cause of violence in our youth (Bezio). This is because when we are children, things are joyful and carefree. Children don’t have a care in the world, other than if they are going to miss the premiere of a new episode of their favorite cartoon. When they grow up to be responsible adults, they get to see what the world is really like, the good the bad and the ugly. So of course they look back to the days when times were better and wonder “What the heck happened to this world!

For my veteran interview we interviewed my Grandpa Jerry Herberholt. He enlisted into the Vietnam War in 1959 when he was only twenty two years old. During the time of his enlistment in the US was getting ready to send troops over to Vietnam so he felt it was best to get it out of the way with. He didn’t try to find an escape from the war. He felt as an American it was only right of him to serve his county.
reversed answers about pregnancy Katniss Peeta, no plans have been set up by her along with Katniss, namely to attract the sympathy of the audience Hunger Games. And apparently it worked. After hearing the answer delivered Peeta, the audience reacted. With a voice that overlap each other, they shouted seilah accusation to the Capitol about how cruel they are if they continue this game, given the current state of Katniss. This opportunity is an opportunity for Katniss and Peeta especially to get support from the audience who felt sorry for them, especially for Katniss.
The grandmother grew in that moment of death more than she ever did in the little parts that we read about her life, and she dies in peace. Her actions may have even changed the Misfit too. At the end, he says “she would have been a good woman if he 'd been there all her life to shoot her.” (366). This line confused me the first time reading it, but the second time around it made more sense. The grandmother felt redeemed by confronting the “evil” in the Misfit and finding the capability within herself to
Dr. Seuss was a childhood hero. From Green Eggs And Ham to cat in the hat, every child has enjoyed his books.

Usually movie sequels, or, prequels aren’t the best but I really fell in love with Monsters University. Monsters University is the story of how Mike and Sully got to where they were in Monsters INC. Ever since Mike visited the Monsters Incorporated Scare Factory as a young monster he’s had this dream of working there and attending Monsters University some day.
