A Chorus Line was different from any of the plays that we had seen during the semester, given that it was a musical. This is definitely what I am more accustomed to from watching my friends through the years preform this style alone essentially as well as my sister playing any Broadway musical soundtrack she could get her hands on for weeks on end. This felt so drastically different from anything else we had seen in the semester because it seemed that there was no end goal or resolution, it just ended. Sure, a handful of characters grew but a lot was left to the imagination at the end of the play. One thing that always sticks out within a musical are the songs itself. Two songs that I would argue stood out to me the most within the musical A Chorus Line were “I Can Do That” and “Dance Ten, Looks Three”.

Stephen King, a famous writer once said, “Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They are both fruit, but they taste completely different.” Truly, this applies to all movies and books. This quote is effective describing the novel and the movie, A Raisin in the Sun. Although the two share similar scenes and acts, the movie shows a lot more details which make it better. These details include changes to the script to make it more understandable. The changes to the script also make the movie more realistic and modern.
Into the Wild is a personal tale of Chris McCandless’ journey as he runs away from home to try and live in the Alaskan wilderness. The book follows the story through the eyes of the author as he investigates the mysteriousness of Chris’ life through the eyes of those he came in contact with and the journals left behind. However like every book adapted into movie there are slight differences and characterizations throughout the story that aren’t expressed deeply enough or seen in a different light. Into the Wild is no different.
The act “12 Angry Men” by Reginald Rose is about a jury deciding the fate of a boy charged with a murder of his father and a jury of 12 men. The men have to find the boy guilty or not guilty or if they do not decide they will become a hung jury. There is a lot of differences between the movie and the play with the way the jurors and act the way that they speak. The act makes the jurors seem like they look like something like they are not when I was reading the act, but then I saw the movie and it just didn’t click in my mind.
As black women always conform under patriarchal principles, women are generally silenced and deprived of rights because men are entitled to control everything. Women are silenced in a way that they lose their confidence and hesitate to speak up due to the norms present in the society they live in. Hence, even if women have the confidence to try to speak, men wouldn’t bother to listen since men ought to believe that they are superior to women. In addition to that, women often live in a life cycle of repetitions due to patriarchal principles since women are established to fulfill the roles the society had given them. It is evidenced by Celie as she struggles to survive and to define oneself apart from the controlling, manipulative, and abusive men in her life.
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.
I’m writing about the comparison to the book and the movie on multiple different scenes in the blind side. Being since i 've read the book and watched the movie i have a lot of knowledge on boths stories. Both are mostly the same but still there 's some sense that stood out to be different.
My final is about the difference between the book and the movie “The Outsiders.” This next paragraph is about the description difference between the book and movie. Then the paragraph after that will be about the description of the background or cars that the characters drive or live in. I think that the move and the book where basted of the same story but I think that when the directors made the movie with some different cars or house that can change the movie or they put different things in it so that the movie will look better. Altogether the movie and the book were pretty good and had good meaning to it about want to think of life and it’s alright to not be tough and hard.
It is crazy to think how pop culture can point to the things it works so hard to reject, but in the case of Divergent by Veronica Roth, parallels between it and the gospel abound. Divergent is set in a dystopian Chicago in which the citizens are divided into 5 factions; the brave, the selfless, the intelligent, the honest and the kind. The story follows Tris Prior, a sixteen year old girl who realizes her Divergence, or possession of characteristics of more than one faction. The novel and film adaption of Divergent include many similarities to the gospel, notably the emphasis on a choice of commitment, the concept that we need more than one characteristic to grow, that salvation is brought about through sacrifice, and that humankind is at its heart, evil.
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.
What is something that every single person in the world cherishes? What is something that people long for? The Color Purple by Alice Walker stretches the answer to that question with a series of letters between two sisters that spans forty years. A story of women joined together by love and hardship, The Color Purple depicts the value of family. But ever since it has been published, the book has gained a reputation for being inappropriate, and not suitable for schools. The Color Purple by Alice Walker should be kept in school libraries because it conveys the importance of family, shows examples of overcoming hardship and discusses serious topics such as rape and death. The Color Purple is an inspiring, beautiful, and powerful read for teens.
Similarly to the previous novel analyzed, in The Color Purple there are some references to the dimension of voice and silence which are considered to be symbolical by some scholars. In her research, Martha J. Cutter points to the connection between Celie`s rape and the Greek mythology (2000). She states that some African American women writers uses the concept of archetypal rape in order to present women`s subjection and inferiority to men. Philomela, the mythological protagonist of this story, is raped by her brother-in-law who cuts her tongue so she is not able to tell anyone what has happened to her. Similarly, Celie is forbidden to tell anyone about the rape. Her attempts to tell about what has happened to her are nullified. She is supposed
"The color purple" is a reflection of reality in 20th century. The African American women isolated from the white society as Walker in The color purple talks about racism and discrimination of society in 20the century. Celie, the heroine was born in Rural Georgia where is known as a harsh place for poor and uneducated black women who were servants to their husbands and fathers. Throughout the novel, Celie tries to overcome her psychological anger and becomes independent. At the beginning of the novel, Celie appears like other women 20th century as they oppressed by men and lived under men 's dominance and violence. the novel starts with silence struggling with anger leading to speak and independence. Women throughout the novel are different in their suffering.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker tells about Celie, a poor black woman and her hardship since she was a little girl. Her hardship starts with sexual abuse from her step dad. However, that doesn 't stop, she gets more abuse in the hands of her husband. Celie gets separated from her family and from her beloved sister, Nettie.

Celie believes in God and how he 's the one who is making her having a hard time in life, that 's why she writes to him, but that doesn 't stop her from believing in him.
