In Lord of the Flies there were a lot of similarities and differences from the book to the movie. In the beginning of the book the boy’s plane crashed into a body of water and the pilot dies but, in the movie the pilot is alive but is severely injured. In both the movie and the book Piggy finds the conch and has Ralph blow it, due to his asthma. When on the island in both the book and the movie Jack was mean to Piggy and whipped some of the little un's. The movie mentioned that Jack went to military school while, in the book they all were choir boys.
Also in the movie, Asher came and dropped Jonas into the river pretending he killed him, but in the book, Jonas had to hide from the heat sensor planes that were not controlled by Asher. In the book, Jonas gave Gabriel the memory of the sun to survive the cold weather, but in the movie, Jonas and Gabriel just kept on going and going. Lastly in the movie, Jonas reaches the house and started to hear music, but in the book, Jonas heard the music but never reached the house. 4. I liked The Giver book better than The Giver movie.
Imagine getting put in jail for nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread. This is what Jean Valjean had to experience. Jean Valjean, the main character of Tom Hooper’s drama Les Miserables, gets out of prison, where he was put for stealing a loaf of bread, at the beginning of the movie. After being told that he’d be let out of jail, his dreams of living a normal life were utterly shattered within a couple seconds. This happened because Javert gave him a slip of paper marking him as a ‘dangerous’ man.
“He wanted to run, but he couldn't run. He couldn't even think.” A lesson before dying is set in a small cajun community in the late 1940s. Our main character Jefferson is caught as an unwitting member of a liquor store shootout where he what's the only survivor, and for his crime is sentenced to death by electrocution even though he did not commit the crime. Grant Wiggins persuaded by his and Jefferson's grandmother goes to visit Jefferson to help him apart from his past and to help him walk. A lesson before dying teaches a valuable lesson of becoming a man and although Jefferson does learn a lesson,Grant learns the better lesson due to the characterization that is portrayed.
They both met at a time and place, although in the Outsiders one gang won and they were not allowed to use weapons, but in West Side Story both gangs lost because both their group leaders died. They were also not able to finish the fight because the police came, and they did not agree to anything, so someone randomly pulled out a switchblade. A lot of the scenes were similar, but in each movie, they also had something unique about each
Growing up Jem and Scout they heard of a man named Boo Radley. They heard rumors about how Boo was a murderer and that he is locked up in the basement of his parents house. The Radley’s house was just few houses down from Jem and Scouts and being kids they were very curious. They created games, but out of those games held their true opinions of how they felt about Boo. Jem describes his image of Boo, “..Six and a half feet tall,....he dined on raw squirrels and cats he could catch, that 's why his hands are bloodstained-if ate an animal raw you could never wash the blood off.

Another similarity is that Bill and Sam wrote a letter to Mr. Dorset for the return of Red Chief. They ended the letter with “Two Desperate Men”. They wanted some money so they put up a kidnapping so they can get some money. There are some differences too about the movie and the story. One difference is on the movie is that Bill and Sam didn’t offer Red Chief some candy; they put him in a trunk and put Red Chief in the back of a car.
When he visited the gay bars often had to offer the boys or men money to lure them to his apartment (Schwartz,1992). As stated in Ewing (2006), in November, Dahmer committed his second murder, but Dahmer never recalled how the man died, just that carried the body in a suitcase to his grandmother’s house. At the house he told authorities he masturbated on the body, skinned and dismembered it and threw the remains of the body in the trash. Dahmer’s killing spree would rapidly escalated nearly two months after the second homicide and would last for about three and half years before the police would finally catch him (Ewing,2006). According to Schwartz (1992), later in Dahmer’s confession he said, “he killed his victims to prevent them from leaving”.
This makes it seem as though Nick went insane from the events of the story, which is not accurate. At the beginning of the movie, Nick’s doctor asks him to write about his memories of Gatsby since he will not talk about them. In the book, Nick never reveals the reason why he wrote
But in the movie, the kidnappers didn’t offer him candy and just put him in a trunk. There aren’t only just differences between the story and the movie. There are also some likenesses. First of all, both the movie and the story had Bill getting hurt by Red Chief the most. Also, they both had the father not even having a care for red chief.
