The experience, the depth, and the imagery are the three main aspects one needs in order to understand why movies are not as good as books. Movies are often said to be an experience to broaden knowledge. When one watches a movie, they are usually focused on the characters and special effects instead of the plot due
Magua, whom was introduced in an early scene, was much more developed in the book. Also in the movie, there are stereotypes that applied to Magua’s character. Stereotypes can make the movie better, but sometimes it is better to completely base a movie off of a book. Another example of this is Alice, Cora’s younger sister. Alice, in the book, doesn’t have a childlike exuberance.

There is no faultless book-based movie. The movie leaves out more details than it should. There is some movements in the book, which is a turning point, or it has been an interesting. For example the novel gives you a full view of the “yellow bucket” and why is that important. In the film they gave it to Brian, to mention it.
First, The Patriot movie was based off a lot of things that happened in history. Did you know that Benjamin Martin wasn’t really a… Opps I don’t think i should be saying anything yet. The Patriot was a powerful movie it had things I didn’t know about, but then had things that were lies and not right about The Patriot. This movie was somewhat historically accurate because of Benjamin Martin, Battle of Cowpens and Colonel Tavington. All facts in The Patriot really didn’t happen in history.
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.
The movie only focuses on the story of the Andrea Gail and the men from Gloucester. I think the overall story is better off this way. For example, I think if the book was written like this, the reader would become more connected to the characters and the book. The reader would go through the same emotions and feelings as the characters because they experienced the same event simultaneously. All in all, I think the book has a great story, but lacks a proper structure for the story at hand.
The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book. The fact is that no matter how well the movie covers the book, there will always be some noticeable difference, as Fitzgerald’s words from the book paint’s a vivid picture of the scenes, that it’s come to life in the mind of its reader. Therefore, even with a perfect design, cast, and performance, any movie version can only disappoint. One of the biggest difference can be seen in the theme representation of the American Dream. While the movie shows the achievement of the American dream, the book shows its failure.
In the film adaptation of the novel, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, some of the original aspects that make the novel so timeless are not included in the movie. However, due to the vastly different medium that film is and the abstractness of the novel, it makes sense why some things would have to change in order for the story to transfer to the screen successfully. While many die-hard fans of the novel denounce the film version of their beloved story, others celebrate the presence of Adams’ wit in the movie especially through the cartoon representations of the guide entries. First of all, the Hitchhiker’s Guide is pictured much differently in the movie than in the novel. The creators of the movie portray the guide as an
The other minor difference that you pick up in the movie that you do not see throughout the book is that Daisy looks like she knows Gatsby is poor when she meets him, which changes the way their relationship is perceived. Though these differences are small they still hold a major significance when analyzing how is changes the plot of Fitzgerald’s
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.
