1924, a man by the name of Erich von Stroheim endeavors film adaptation of Frank Norris’s novel, McTeague spawning 10 hours of Greed, a moving picture. It was cut, thanks to studio direction to 4 hours, and soon 2, but still failing because of the missing material after the abridge. After, only daring producers made any effort to make book reports a hell of alot easier. Once Hollywood comes into play, films take away the important pieces to the story, and maybe it’s just the kooky Californians, but they’re always in a hurry to get to the action. So tell me, when can I watch a movie first, and finally read the book last?
Although the movie did have some interesting additions and removals, the book was far more appealing to a general audience than the movie. One of the first reasons for why the book is better than the movie is because of the characters. In the movie, they removed Yitzchak and Reuven. These are very important characters in the story. They even replaced Gitl with Aunt Mina, who did not play as big of a role compared to Gitl’s.
The book Fahrenheit 451 was turned into a movie which included many similarities and differences from the book. The biggest difference was Clarisse in general because she was a teacher instead of a student, she never died when it was said she did, and her overall character was a little off due to these simple changes. There was also no war in the movie, which made it so that there was no bombing at the end so the city wasn’t destroyed. Faber also wasn’t in the movie, although he was a major character in the book because of his influence over Montag. While there were many differences there were also similarities, but they were mostly small details.
Also in the book you can see more character development. Even though the film was not exactly like the book the director did a great job, and this still is one of my favorite movies. Percy Jackson and the lightning thief was an incredible book and movie. Though the movie forgot a couple things it was still an amazing film. I would recommend both.
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.
Slam immediately didn’t like coach Nipper because of the way he responded to Slam’s actions. In the movie, Jamal's teacher Mr. Crawford doesn’t like Jamal either. First of all, Jamal is a new student at his school and Mr. Crawford thinks that his writings are too good. Mr. Crawford’s dream of being a published author got destroyed when he was younger so now, he doesn’t
(PS) Thoreau depicts life as needing to be simple and free of the distractions of material wealth. (SS) By reducing one’s life to its lowest terms one can understand the world and appreciate its “whole and genuine meanness” (Thoreau 1). Thoreau’s beliefs of living simply can be applied to reality and more specifically my life. My lake house, located two hours north, is used as an escape from the modern world as it lacks technology. This includes the removal of television and telephones.
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. This paragraph is about the description difference between the main characters in the movie and book.
In the movie, it is foggy,swampish feeling, and less like an actual place and more like a horror movie location. In the movie it’s pictured as a peaceful and kind of a lethargic town plagued by the “Headless Horseman”. In the movie, it’s as little different. They’re setting up guard towers and it’s full of action and people are partying in the inn and the town is full of life which is nearly the opposite of the town in the book. For example, in the movie a person was impaled by a stake thrown through a church window and he was pulled out a window rather intensely.
This matters because this one of the first change Jonas has because he is now feeling, feelings, just like The Giver, but not everyone else.this reveals to us that jonas is breaking a rule and lying to everyone that his is taking the pills. Addition to not taking pills, Joans is becoming isolated even more is the game of war. On days off, the children like to play in the park. The like to play a game that They like to call, good guys and bad guys. The game to them as really no meaning, but to Jonas it's a whole different thing.
Socs our called Socs because their the more social group and they just use Socs for short/a nickname. The outsiders is a really good book and movie. You could easily compare both of them though, for their differences and their similarities. The Book and the movie our two different things but it has some things in common, they have a lot of things that our same but also a lot of
A family member who was interned Mrs. Hata said she was treated well by the guards, "...They didn 't beat us or harm us. We were just incarcerated." In Germany they would never have the luxuries they had here. The Japan-Amer. Camps would have housing lacked plumbing or cooking facilities, and some of the camps were in hot, dry and dusty locations.
If one scene didn’t happen, than a scene that’s connected to that wouldn’t have happened. One plotline that I found necessary in the novel was the Locke and Demothenes scheme that Peter and Valentine set up. Without that plot, Valentine didn’t go to Eros to convince Ender to come with her to colonize the Formics’ world, which led to Ender finding the fantasy game setting on Eros instead. However, there were some accuracy to the plot of the film. For example, even though Ender beats Stilson up with an object he found in the classroom they were in, the aftermath of it was quite spot on.
