In 1973, the beloved children’s classic, Charlotte’s Web, made its first appearance onto the screen. Over 30 years later, a newer version of the classic hit the big screen. Since both were closely based on the original book written by E. B. White, the movies still hold true to the core values and overall plot. Between the two films, there arose many similarities, but there were still a few variations in the two films. This essay will compare and contrast the ways in which the original animated version of Charlotte’s Web in 1973 and the live-action version of Charlotte’s Web in 2006 on terms of character’s setting, personalities, and plot.
Pleasantville is exactly how it sounds like, it is a town where everything is pleasant and swell. The town is a closed universe, where the streets loop back onto themselves. Also, where the only job for firemen was to rescue cats from trees. The main characters, David and Jennifer were suddenly sucked into the TV series. As the show progress with David as Bud, and Jennifer as Mary Sue, things start to change in Pleasantville. Other colors start to appear in the show, instead of the classic black and white. The new colors that start to appear represent freedom and individual thoughts. However, this only happened to the characters with strong emotions and who were also breaking away from “tradition”. For example, when David/Bud suddenly changed
First and foremost, there are similarities and differences between the characters in both works. One similarity is, the main characters are both trying to change something from their city or their community. In The Giver, Jonas is trying to reach the boundary of memory to replenish people with memories of both happy and very devastating things. The situation that pushes him to do this is when he sees his father release a baby to elsewhere, which, in

“Change is the law of life. Those who look only to the past or present, are certain to miss the future” (Peters, Wolly). A famous quote stating that change is normal, necessary, and sometimes needed whether it is wanted or not. The citizens of Pleasantville lived the same life, day by day, with no variation. This is why they fear change, but they soon find out change is not entirely a bad thing though it may appear to be. An analysis of Gary Ross’ movie Pleasantville reveals that change may seem petrifying because of how foreign it is to them, but change is inevitable.
MLK, The Giver, and Doodle are different and they are the same by all the details of all of the stories……
Even though The House of the Scorpion and The Giver are two books that are very different they can still have similarities. Matt Alacrán from The House of the Scorpion and Jonas from The Giver have similarities and differences. While there are more differences than similarities the similarities that these two books do have are very interesting. For example, Jonas grew up in a society where everyone knew what to do and never had to worry. Matt grew up in a place where he knew his place and had no worries. “It was one of the rituals, the evening telling of feelings.” this excerpt from the giver shows that they have a constant routine. One way you can tell Matt has little to worry about is this quote from The House of the Scorpion “She cooked
Dystopia, an imaginary place where people live dehumanized and often fearful lives. In Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut and The Giver by Lois Lowry, both societies are robbed of their human attributes and live in fear of the government. Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut illustrates how life would be if everyone was equal in every aspect. The citizens are attached to “handicaps” that deprive them of their intelligence, an attempt to prevent a rebellion. For the most part, people followed the regulations that were evident until Harrison Bergeron, son of George and Hazel Bergeron, realized that the handicaps were inhumane. As a dystopian protagonist, Bergeron aired on live television, after being in confinement, and expressed the many flaws
I have read the novel, “The Giver”, written by the famous American writer Lois Lowry. This book was written under author’s impression after visiting her aging father in the hospital, who had lost his long term memory. The idea of the book is the importance of memory. The novel is set in a society which seems like utopian, in this society there is no hunger, sadness, or misery. However this utopian society is held from experiencing true emotions. This lack of emotion is causing serious problems for the main character Jonas, when he was elected to be the new guardian of memory. It was his job to make sure no one found out about the past. Since the community is build perfect, and they will not feel any kind of emotion even if it’s a good feeling like love.
