Imagine living in a world with no freedom, choice, individuality, and color. Would you want to live in a world like this? Most of you would have said no, but a boy named Jonas has no choice, but to adhere to his community’s rules. In the book and the movie, “The Giver”, by Louis Lowery, Jonas finds it difficult to accept his community’s way of life. However, after he becomes the receiver of memory, he challenges the community after discovering what the world used to be like before sameness. In order to truly know what the movie or the novel did well or awful on, we must first consider the following criteria, characters, plot, and the setting.
What if we lived in a world of peace and equality? What if we lived in a world with no differences? A world with no social classes and inequality. That sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it? In Lois Lowry’s novel The Giver that is the reality. The catch? The catch is freedom. There is no room for being different, no room for spontaneity, no room for experimentation and breaking the rules. If you break the rules you will be caught and their is no room for forgiveness. Also, if you are diagnosed with a disease, or just simply sick, you must likely will be released into the “elsewhere” world.
A book and a movie can be both the same and different. In The Outsiders there are many similarities and differences with the book and movie. They were the same because Johnny kills a man, they cut their, there was the movie scene, and Johnny and Ponyboy went to the church. Some of the differences is when Darry slaps Ponyboy but in the movie he pushes him, Johnny doesn't bring a lot of food in the book but does in the movie he does, when Johnny killed the man it was more described but it wasn't in the movie, and Johnny says he wants to kill himself in the movie. In The Outsiders one of the themes is “friendship”
The Giver is about a young boy named Jonas who lives in a community without color, emotion, war, differences, pain, etc. There is only the community. That is until he gets his assignment where he sees and feels things that he never knew existed. One of the major script differences in the film is that we learn right away that Jonas’ community doesn’t see color. 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.
Have you ever rode in a car for more than 24 hours? The plot in the book of “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, is about a family going on a trip to Birmingham in 1963 and experience an event that makes them see how wrong color in the south are treated. The plot in the movie is more about how colored had been fighting for their rights and all the event leading up to everyone becoming equal. In “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, lots of events changed the plot like the movie is focused mainly on Civil Rights while the book isn 't, but Joey leaves the church before it blows up in both, so there are some similarities.
The poem and movie of “Beowulf” are very different and they are also sort of similar. There are a lot more differences between the two than you would expect and while some of them are minor differences others are drastically different. Most movies are very different from the book they are made from. The biggest differences between the movie and poem were the three battles. The three battles have drastic differences. All three of the battles have great significance to both the movie and the poem.
In this film called The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and a book called Jasper Jones written by Craig Silvey they will be comparing and contrasting the use of themes in the film and the book. Revenge in The Dressmaker happens when Tilly burned the town; in Jasper Jones Eliza burned her home. Then in Family Tilly and Molly has a rough start but when Tilly came back they turned out to be happy with each other, while in Jasper Jones Charlies mum and Charlie are happy at the start but went downhill very quickly when Laura disappeared. The themes are revenge, death, and family.
In the book and the movie The Crucible there are a lot of differences and similarities of the two. Some of the similarities are the characters and story line. The differences are like the scene or part between the book and movie. The characters were the same but seeing them in the movie was a lot different then reading about them in the book. The movie was better because I like visual things better.
There are comparisons and contrast in the movie and the book “The Outsiders”. For example in both when Ponyboy and Johnny run away from after killing Bob they go on the train to the abandoned church in both.They are similar because in the story and movie Johnny kills bob then runs away with Pony. They go to Dally where he gave them a pistol and told them to jump on the train and get off at the second stop Windrixville and go to the abandoned church on top of jay mountain. Another example of similarities between both is they still have all the main characters in the greaser gang.They are similar because throughout both Ponyboy and Johnny are the main characters from the greaser gang until they kill bob then the rest of the greaser gang becomes more of the main characters. There are many different similarities between the book and movie “The Outsiders”, but there are also a lot of comparisons between the two.
When we compare the dystopian/utopian film, The Giver, and the dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451, it's clear that there are some similarities and some differences. Though some are very difficult to find, there are others that are very obvious. The three obvious topics are, the way the characters cope or try to change their situation, the setting of the book, and the government or leaders that they both have.
The book The Giver, a dystopian novel by Lois Lowry, and its movie adaptation have many similarities and differences. There are many aspects of Lowry’s story that remain the same in both versions of it. Generally, the characters, setting, plot, and events stay true to the book. However, in the movie interpretation there are some things that are changed and made different from the original book. Many things are changed in the film, and these separate the movie from the book quite a bit.
Greed is a trait nobody should have and one man’s life was ruined by it.“Bah Humbug!”is a famous quote from the astounding play, A Christmas Carol the story of a rich, old, mean man named Ebenezer Scrooge whose life was turned around.

Most of the similarities and differences appear when the three ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future visit him and change his life for the better. After scrooge sees his dead body with nobody caring about it. He is then Humbled and changes his life as he then does good deeds and is a happy and kind man.
A Christmas Carol is full of many twists and turns, and has been written in many different versions. Writers have taken artistic liberties and have added or taken away to the beloved Christmas story to make it their own. No two versions are going to be exactly similar, and most definitely are going to have many differences.
A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens, tells the story of a man, Mr. Ebeneezer Scrooge, who believes Christmas to be humbugged, and is later visited by three ghosts aim to alter his atrocious attitude by the time Christmas arrives.This, in turn, is to help save him from what he believes to be an abominable fate, dying alone and no one truly feeling sad for his death. There have been many film adaptations of the drama, but one most notably being the 1984 rendition of A Christmas Carol, directed by Clive Donner. Although the stories are very similar, one can note few key differences in both play and drama portrayals.
