There are many movies and books that have tons of similarities and differences. I choosed A Series of Unfortunate Events, because of the nail biting moments that are in the book and movie. Plus,and you just want to know what happened. They both have many differences, but not many similarities. Some of the differences are very big changes and might make you like the other one more.
Have you ever watched a movie based on a book that told the exact same story? To me, for some reason, books always seem to be the better one out of the two. I feel that in novels, the author develops the story with as many details as possible, while in movies that aspect doesn’t appear in the same way. There aren’t as many details in films since it has to last for a certain amount of time, but books can last for as many pages as the author would like them to. When I read, the fascinating novel “Beowulf,” I really enjoyed how the author made me use my imagination to create a picture of the world that the characters were living in. However, when I watched the movie, I felt as though everything I had imagined in my head from reading the book was wrong. Although, this might be the case since I read the book first, and then compared it to the

It is quite common for award winning books to be transformed into a movie. Readers are sparked with excitement, only to be disappointed by the results. They do not find themselves being able to have the same experience the felt whilst reading the text. They are let down and not satisfied by what the movie produced for them. There are also times when people assume that these films will always be identical to its book version so they refrain from actually reading the book. However, this is often not true. Looking at author John Ball’s “In the Heat of The Night” , readers can easily see the distinct differences between the book and its movie version. Certain components regarding the plot and its characters were missing
The PBS article of the adaptation discusses the challenges of adapting a novel into a film and the changes of filmmakers must make. More than 65 percent of novels and stories have been turned into films. However, the narrator in stories or a novels are the main key because “In film the narrator largely disappears”(PBS). But in a movie gives the audience exactly what it should be seen, in stories, and novels the reader has to imagine in their own. The article explains that to do a film the filmmakers have to vision what's happening in the book to do the film. Also, filmmakers make changes in the film to the novel to be more interesting. As in a films and novels they both have different tools for their own “narrative structure”. “In the Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury the

Terence Davies film, “The Long Day Closes” portrays the life of a young homosexual boy living in a postwar society.

It is often believed that pictures speak louder than words. However, when comparing a book to a movie, this quote is totally not applicable. The purpose of creating a movie from a book is mainly to bring the characters to life and make the story more relatable. Fantasies, especially, are unrealistic and hence a movie makes the fantasy come to life. The Princess Bride was originally a book which was then filmed as a movie to recreate the story. The fantasy is about Buttercup, a milkmaid, and Westley, a farm boy, who fall in love and have to face many obstacles. The story mainly develops the themes of true love and revenge. However, in the book, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, the story develops the theme of revenge and true love in more depth compared to the movie.
How well can a director put a book into action as a movie? After reading the book The Color Purple by Alice Walker and watching the movie The Color Purple directed by Steven Spielberg, I was given both sides of the story written and the screen write. Contrasting the two together personally is quite tricky because both the book and the movie were great to take part in. However some events in the book were obviously different when watching the movie.
In life kids are known to be naive and innocent to the ways of the world. They think everything is fun and games up until they experience a phenomenon that makes them grow up. At times those experiences can be traumatizing and extremely tense. In the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the main character Ralph experiences first hand what a human with a dark heart can do. William Golding uses diction, imagery and detail to set an intense tone for the story.
Many very famous books are turned into movies, assuming that the film version can be very similar or different, But two perspectives can be seen and the general story line will be in enjoyed. a great example of this is The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne End movie by Mark Herman It 's about a German boy named Bruno, we traveling through him to Poland from Germany where he meets a person that he will hang on with forever and a situation hard to unravel. This is a confusing, powerful story set during World War II where wealthy ignorant boy meets an “out-with” Jew. the film stays true to the book through the plot where Bruno dies, And deviates through the mother 's character and the resolution.
Every human has a somber attitude hidden inside oneself that is exposed only in certain situations. The novel Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, is an excellent example of the evils that escape one in dangerous matters as it occurs to it’s characters. With Goldings rigorous tale of a group of stranded young boys and their suffering on an uncharted island, he creates an intensely frightening mood for his readers, which allows his tone to be portrayed. William Golding provides a clear description of his cynical and apathetic tone, using Imagery, Language, and Syntax.
There are many differences made in the movie and the book to simplify the plot to save time. Majority of the simplifications being made do not affect the story, but have a different way of portraying each chapter. The movie and the book portray the messages in different ways with the same meaning.
A majority of the opening paragraphs consist of long sentences composed of many short clauses. Truman utilizes these long sentences with particular effectiveness when describing the town 's population: “The local accent is barbed with a prairie twang, a ranch hand nasalness, and the men, many of them, wear narrow frontier trousers, Stetsons, and high heeled boots with pointed toes.” This diction is quite obvious when attention is called to it, but serves a subtle purpose in the context of the work: it slows the reader’s pace. The short clauses and abundant commas force the reader to adopt a slow rhythm while reading the sentences, paralleling Truman’s view on the daily uneventful lives of the townsfolk. In addition, it allows him to to call attention to the imagery of the denizens. Through this structure, he paints a picture of Holcomb as a tired and worn-out village, where life plays out at a predictable pace.
Ray Bradbury’s style in Fahrenheit 451 is unique, and it helps add to the story’s atmosphere and tone. Bradbury structures his sentences in such a way that it makes the described situation feel heavier, and more meaningful. His vocabulary adds a rich sense of imagery, this is also combined with his use of figurative language throughout, compliments it further. These things come together to form a type of style that’s powerful, bizarre, and even confusing at times. All in all however, it’s effective, and that’s all that matters.
