These two items have many similarities and many different, but here are a few of the similarities. In the movie Star Wars Luke Skywalker meets his two sidekicks named CP3O and R2D2. CP3O and R2D2 come from a space shuttle, with the princess named Leia, who is trying to save planets from the Deathstar. The Deathstar is the evil force headed by Darth Vader. CP3PO and R2D2 escape from the Deathstar and land on the planet where Luke is and the three team up and go out and explore.
Back in 1985, 9/10 of the movies made in Hollywood were original. By 2005, however, 9/10 movies were unoriginal and based on something previously made. Basing movies off of other material isn’t a new idea though. Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” was made into a movie in 1932. Star Wars involves a lot of shooting and running, and is about good guys versus bad guys.
The three original Star Wars movies are A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The three movies came out between 1977-1983. That is only 35 years ago, but the ideas that are in the movies can be traced back thousands of years to the Monomyth and the Hero’s Journey. In Star Wars, many of the common archetypes are represented. Luke Skywalker is the hero and the three movies are of his quest.
One huge difference in the setting, in the book the story takes place on the shore of lake Michigan in a brand new apartment building in a small town. On the other hand the movie takes place old, run down apartment in the middle of a huge city. Another example is the characters, in the book there are 16 heirs with eight pairs. In the movie there are 10 heirs and 5 pairs. Also the movie leaves out some huge characters like Theo Theodorakis, Flora Baumbach, and Madame Sun Lin Hoo(who was the thief) and all of them have to do with emotion.
These spiritual teachings and motifs are seen throughout the Star Wars movies and they "promote values and worldviews", which are adopted from Buddhism (Feichtinger 34). These Buddhist motifs are expressed through symbols and the actions of the Jedi and can also be noticed through the lines and dialogues of the characters. According to Christian Feichtinger, there are five basic contents of Buddhism that Lucas has adopted for the Jedi: mindfulness, compassion, the interdependence of all being, letting go of all things, and illusion (34). Star Wars promotes various Buddhist elements which can be seen throughout its movies.
For example one big similarity is when Turtle wins The Westing Game in both movie and novel. A major difference is that there are some characters that were in the book that aren't in the movie like Flora Baumbach, Theo Theodorakis, and Madame Hoo. Even though the movie wasn’t as good or as exciting as the book, they were both interesting and are fun to read and listen
For example, in the book, only one person drowns Pony, but in the movie, three people drowned him. This is different because in the book Pony is being drowned at the water fountain by only one person.On the other hand in the movie Pony is getting drowned by three people instead of one like it is in the story. Another comparison between the book and the movie would be when Ponyboy goes to court and doesn’t testify in the book, but in the movie he does.These are different because in the book when Pony has to go to court for the murder of Bob he doesn’t testify in the movie when he goes to court he does testify. There are many simularities and differences in the book and movie " The
Delve Into the World of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Through the Gender Lens “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” Star Wars fans worldwide recognize the opening crawl as it appears on the big screen for the first time in ten years. The film gives a warm welcome to familiar faces and greets a new group of up-and-coming actors and actresses, as well as a new conflict. The Dark Side is back in the form of The First Order, and Kylo Ren, son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, has plans of being greater and more evil than his grandfather, Darth Vader. Against him are The Resistance, led by his mother, General Leia, and newcomers Rey, an independent young woman with nothing to lose; Finn, a former Stormtrooper who rebelled against The First Order; and Poe Dameron, a fighter pilot who Leia is very fond of. To the average viewer, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an action packed adventure movie, and another great addition to the Star Wars saga… but, when analysed through the Gender Lens, the film becomes a trial of endurance for a young heroine and her friends, who encounter an
For 3 years of anticipation without any hope from the consequence of the latest film Transformers Age of Extinction, here comes Transformers The Last Knight which was a film no one requested. Although, with definitive different Hollywood writers creating a ‘Writer’s Room’ for the latest Transformers film, I howbeit adhered my anticipation for some hope. This movie derived awful critical reviews from critics commonly articulating that it is the same exact movie we have gotten from every Transformers film directed by Michael Bay. Nevertheless, I had an uncommonly ‘fun’ time at the cinema while watching Transformers The Last Knight. Transformers The Last Knight follows an untold tale of King Arthur in battle at the Medieval times augmenting support from the secretly veiled Transformer Knights.
