“Christmas is a Humbug” he says. The drama “A Christmas Carol” is about a man named who has a nasty attitude about Christmas. He is a greedy man who doesn’t want to donate anything to the poor and sick. He thinks that Christmas is a waste of time and money. Marley was this man’s business partner before he died. Marley came to this selfish man as a ghost with money boxes and chains which were weighing him down. Marley came to warn him that he needs to become a new man. Marley said that if he didn’t change that he would be hated by everyone like Marley was after he died. There are many similarities and a couple differences between this movie and drama like the ghosts of Past, Present and Future.
In both the movie and the story Jacob Marley was dead, and his name was still on the sign where Mr. Scrooge worked. One night Marley started to haunt Scrooge and told him about what would happen to his future if he didn’t straighten up. There were also three spirits that came to his house, there was the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of the Christmas present, and a ghost of the Christmas yet to come. All three spirits took the Scrooge somewhere. The ghost of the Christmas past took Scrooge to
What are the similarities and differences of the play and the movie A Christmas Carol ?In these two stories they were almost identical but slightly different The two scrooges in the stories were very similar. They are very similar because of their behavior, selfishness, cruelty, and misunderstanding for Christmas. Although the two scrooges get better along the story, they had a misunderstanding of Christmas most of the time. The two Scrooges also thought of a word that was what they thought of Christmas and how it was explained to them. It was explained to them with the phrase Bah-Humbug. Scrooge was never a fan of Christmas so it was time someone taught him what it was really about and how important it is.

I enjoyed the movie better than the book. It included just the right amount of action scenes, description words, and details from the story. The story was amazing but I like seeing things more than reading them. I usually like the movies better than the book. If I didn 't have the book I still think that I would be able to follow along with the movie and know what is going on. I really did like the story. It was different than any other books. It was funny and adventures but at times it was very mature. The lesson that anyone can learn is don 't change something you believe in because other people say it is not true. In other words when you belive in lets say Santa Claus and other people say he is not real don 't stop believing because of what they say. I think this is a great lesson
Some of the best movies are based on books. One movie based on a book is The Hunger Games. While the movie is entertaining, it is very different from the book. “Ask any reader who has seen the movie version of a favorite novel, and the answer will usually be, "The book was better." That 's because readers of a novel have already made their own perfect movie version” (Corliss et al., 2005). It would appear that Corliss is correct because many people who have read The Hunger Games book would say that it is better than the movie. Although the Hunger Games movie is entertaining, it is very different from the book. There are details left out of the movie that were in the book, the movie doesn 't demonstrate the ongoing theme of hunger as well as the book does, and the the movie does a better job with
For starters, Marley doesn’t speak out directly to the audience in the movie. He only speaks to Mr.Scrooge. (Dickens Movie, Clive Donner) And in the movie the spirit of Christmas past, was a grown woman who was supposedly the spirit. But in the play the spirit was a child of some sort.(Dickens,play/movie)Maybe an adult but in the form of a child. Then in the movie they got to a place that looks like a sewer or the poorer part of town. There is a family who are very poor, barely enough to eat. Then the spirit takes him to the grave. In the play the part about the poor family doesn’t happen in the play. The either made up that part or completely skipped
Events from the past can influence people to change their life for the better. Influence from anyone and anything can definitely affect you. Chances are, if you have done atrocious things, you probably want to try and do some good. This the case for the main characters in the stories “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens and “A Retrieved Reformation” by O’ Harey. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy, grumpy man who hates Christmas and really anything that involves joy. One night, when three spirits come to him to inform him about the past, present, and future, he decides to turn his life around and change for the better. Jimmy Valentine is a safe cracker who moves to a new town. Once he meets a girl name Annabel, he decides to literally change his
Greed is a trait nobody should have and one man’s life was ruined by it.“Bah Humbug!”is a famous quote from the astounding play, A Christmas Carol the story of a rich, old, mean man named Ebenezer Scrooge whose life was turned around. The play was later copied in a movie in 1984 and the movie shows many similarities and differences to the play. Most of the similarities and differences appear when the three ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future visit him and change his life for the better. After scrooge sees his dead body with nobody caring about it. He is then Humbled and changes his life as he then does good deeds and is a happy and kind man.

In the play and in the movie, Scrooge both unappreciated Christmas the way it was. In the movie and the play, Scrooge passed by some carolers. When he passed them he was on his way to work and the children started to sing to him. They did the same thing when he came back home. Scrooge is practically the same character. They both took place in his
In both of these versions from movie to drama there is the same point of the story. Even though your past was bad you can make your future better. And from the what I read and saw. Mr. Scrooge did just
Nicholas Sparks, an author everyone knows, created another masterpiece in 2013, with his novel, The Longest Ride. As many of his novels do, The Longest Ride developed into a movie, directed by George Tillman Jr. Throughout the movie, viewers can see how individual characters develop and how their inter tangled relationships develop as well. With the help of the movie, some viewers can see the emotions felt between characters shown easier than reading the novel. While the movie provides a strong story and a comparison to the novel, I feel that the novel has shown the storyline, relationships, and emotions in a more successful manner and, therefore, prefer it to the
