If a movie was based on a book, which it often is, there would not be enough time to include minor details. Movies don’t have a complex storyline as movies shorten the story down to a simple plot with slight similarities to the book it is based off of. Most of the time, the script does not do the story justice. Movies are limited as it relies on visual stimulation and having to tell a story primarily through dialogue. It is tough for filmmakers to depict the inner conflicts of a character’s mind thus making it very shallow and lacking in depth.
Alexa Colunga Ms. Tijerina English 3 1301 10/26/2014 As a sayings goes, the book is better than the movie. Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya is a story based on a young boy becoming aware of his internal conflicts. In the filmthere were particular things that were different from the book like the dialogue and events; however, the similarities between the story and film were the fact that it followed all the death events that surrounded Antonio. In the film, most of the actors were not communicating as much as they should, and some of them actually leave out the importance of the dialogue. Dialogue in the book gives a brief description on who, what, where, when, and why for the reader may get a bit of the summary on Bless Me, Ultima; in addition, the reader might grasp the concept on what the author is trying to achieve.
I liked The Giver book better than The Giver movie. Lois Lowry took her time, and the book flowed really well. Also, the book was more detailed with all the important parts. The movie on the other hand, lacked with details, and skipped important parts. I felt like the movie was rushed, and going too fast.
Either they find a way out or they all die. It is important that you read this essay because of the many similarities and differences you might have missed when you read the book and then watched the film. The movie, "The Maze Runner" is one of the best selling books and most sold out movie of all time;however there are many differences and similarities between them and the added events in the film. The novel, "The Maze Runner" and it 's film adaptaion are different for several reasons. In the film, Minho and Alby didn 't seem very friendly torwards eachother.
This was a really fine written book, showing a great deal of value in remembering the past and the importance of family. And the movie was portrayed extremely accomplished, even though there were alterations that I didn’t appreciate. In my opinion, the book was superior over the movie, describing in depth the suffering and sadness in the camp effectively, which the movie did not, and developing the characters in a suitable way. I would recommend this to anyone who delights in history along with fiction. It contains the reality of the holocaust while including fictional characters and plot lines.
Another major script difference is that the ending in the film is different from the ending in the book. The Giver book is more powerful than the film because of its plot, characterization, and resolution. The plot of The Giver book is more powerful because it builds more suspense. In the book, the Ceremony of Twelve doesn’t happen right away so we can see how Jonas feels the days leading
The budget was used excessively on the well-known actors like Keanu Reeves, Dina Meyer, Ice-T, Dolph Lundgren, Udo Kier and Takeshi Kitano who was popular in Japan. This lead to an insufficient budget that focused less on other critical aspects of a good film such as quality assurance that created a mismatch with the director’s vision and the original novel
Firstly, in the book you can imagine the story and characters the way you want to. Secondly, the book includes far more details than the movie that deeply develops the characters. Lastly, the movie did not include favored parts that were in the book. The book showed its full potential. First, the book was better than the movie because you
In the movie Nightjohn directed by Charles Burnett their were many differences than the book Nightjohn by Gary Paulsen. The differences are minimal and sometimes would not even be noticed. Most movies would be very boring if they would be the same as the book. In the book all the characters are different than they are in the movie. One character is Mrs.Waller the wife of Clel Waller.
Lastly, the movie would be very difficult for a person with no background knowledge of this society Orwell built, to get a good grip on what was going on. When Winston reads Goldstein 's book it gives an inside look at the society, this part is very briefly covered in the movie, which gives a lack of understanding to the viewer. The director did seem to put effort into simplifying the material and moving the scenes around, in the beginning, to help the views better understand and get into the plot, but I don 't think it was very successful. The movie moved so quickly over all of the details and events that built to the end, that when Winston finally gets caught you feel no emotion because you don 't feel attached to his character. This is no knock to John Hurt as an actor, I think his scene with O’Brien in room 101 were great and showed emotion, but there wasn 't enough little details beforehand to really care what happened to him
A common comparison made everyday is between books and movies. Many movies based on books leave out important details and scenarios disappointing the audience. In the futuristic short story, "Harrison Bergeron," by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., everyone is equal or average, what many people might consider a utopia. 2081 is a movie based on "Harrison Bergeron," and like any other book based movie, it excludes many details and alters many scenes changing the storyline. Personally, I found the book more appealing than the movie because of the specific details and description.
In the book there was not even the slightest thought of releasing Fiona ,but in the movie they decided to add in an irrelevant detail about them trying to release her to “Elsewhere”, The Giver was the only one who wanted to be released so that he could see his daughter, Rosemary, again. So, I think the movie team could have done a lot better on the movie than they actually did. To conclude, the book and movie, “The Giver”, have many similarities but also many differences. The movie crew tried to stay true to the story, but did not really accomplish it. There were way too many differences such as, the characters were older and did not look how I pictured them to look in my head, they could not add in extra details from the book, but they could add in irrelevant ones.
In 2013, based off of the prestigious science fiction novel, Ender’s Game, was made into the movie. Generally, when a book is made into a movie, it doesn’t do the book justice. That was how I felt about the portrayal of the film. There were many plot holes, extra scenes that weren’t from the book, and the portrayal of the relationships between the characters weren’t accurate. The characters and relationships developed in the book differed from what was portrayed in the film.
Orme 1 Ava Orme Dr. Shadden-Cobb Writing 24 Oct. 2016 The Outsiders: Book vs. Movie When you read a book and then watch the movie of that book, there will always be a few differences. The Outsiders book and movie hold that statement true. Most of the more important events are the same, but a lot of the details do not match up. The book told more details and made the important things pop out. The movie left out a lot of the little things that made a big difference overall.
