The movie also missed critical events and that the author has included in her book, including Sandy, Ponyboy’s talk with Cherry Valance about sunsets, the streetlight in which Dally died, the hearing of Ponyboy’s fate at court, and Sodapop’s horse Mickey Mouse. These events and occurrences were impactful to the story’s plot and its resoluting outcome. Although the ending in the book was very dramatic, the movie also has a similar ending, but less breathtaking and thrilling. Many people ought to know that these events were also a trait that each character
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.
To conclude, the novel and movie production of The Hound of the Baskervilles were very different in terms of characters, character relationships, and the resolution of the story. This is mainly because these two works were made in different centuries and for different audiences. The takeaway from this is that whenever there is a retelling of a classic tale, details are changed and the different versions will not be the same. The character portrayal, character relationships, and resolution were altered by David Attwood to make the movie appeal to
To say that what happened to him was wrong is not the same as saying that what he did was right. It was absolutely necessary for a threat to the public like him to be neutralised, but Burgess suggests that the way in which he was dealt with was not completely correct. Cinematic adaptations by Stanley Kubrick and differences between the books and films Both the books, Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange and Vladimir Nabokov’s were adapted into films by one of the most influential and critically acclaimed directors of Hollywood, Stanley Kubrick. The two films were heavily censored due to the fact that the type of violence and sexuality presented in books if translated into the films would cause major uproar among the public and critics. Causes of the dissimilarities What is appropriate and
First person narration allows the reader to dig deeper into the story, and see the true meaning of scenes, and it allows them to understand the story better. This whole story would have had a different impact on the reader if they hadn’t known the narrator’s motivation for the crime committed. “The Tell Tale Heart” contrasts from the movie, “The Murder on the Orient Express” because the viewer was confused up until the end of the movie, for then did they figure out the character’s motives for committing the murder. Some will say it was much less enjoyable because there were no motives to be found until the very end, whereas first person narration can tell us right from the
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
While they film the movie using Lina as the actress, they dub the footage to use Kathy’s beautiful voice. Not only does this bring about a whole new set of problems when Lina fights to maintain her reputation by preventing Kathy from receiving any credit for the film, but it reveals a lot about the ethical values found in the film industry. Kelly and Donen are trying to make a point that the industry is willing to do anything, even if it is unethical, in order to make a profit and maintain a star’s fabricated reputation. Of course, Don struggles between wanting to keep the reputation of his film while also giving Kathy the credit that she deserves which only heightens his internal conflict between honest artistry and the glitz and glam of
Another big difference was that Sydelle Pulaski wasn’t the mistake like she was in the novel. Sam Westing had a mistake brought to play The Westing Game in the novel, but not in the movie. There are some differences between The Westing Game novel and movie. The Westing Game movie and novel contain many similarities and differences that are worth noting. For example one big similarity is when Turtle wins The Westing Game in both movie and novel.
This is meaningful because it shows the isolation of the Jazz Age by painting a lavish picture even though dark things were happening such as Tom's affair and the eventual murder of Gatsby by George Wilson. This shows that the Jazz Age was similar to a “gilded-age” where everything was golden on top, but not quite so below the surface, as these parties were used as a means to attract Daisy, which will cause future conflicts in the book. Opposers to this argument will say that the wild spirit of the book including Gatsby's parties does not show that isolation of the Jazz Age, because if a lot of people were going to Gatsby’s parties and participating in his events, it must mean that everyone was experiencing the money of the Jazz Age or had a sense of happiness and no worries. But in reality, it was not like that. Elaborating more on the “gilded-age” comparison; even though it looked like all fun and games there was a darker meaning behind everything.
To me, this felt confusing at first, and I felt I needed closure that Suzie was actually murdered. This may have been intentional by the director to make the film still appropriate to younger viewers, but I personally would have shot it differently, and added slightly more clarity as to how she had died. Overall, I think the movie The Lovely Bones, is a great watch. It made me really consider the fact that people such as Suzie’s killer, do exist outside of a TV screen, in the real world. This situation isn’t a rare one, and it shone light onto the fact that bad things can happen to anyone in society, even the most kind and innocent of people (Like Suzie).
The movie also leaves out the racism of Mrs. Turner, who praises Janie 's Caucasian feature and despices Tea Cake 's dark skin. I acknowledge that movies don 't always include everything from the book it is based on but I really feel that some scenes should have been included. For example, Janie’s family history isn 't really involved in the film. Also, if you were to just watch the movie you wouldn 't understand why Nanny forces Janie to marry
(Jazz Standards.com) The 1920’s centered around these tunes more than others, but that doesn’t mean they were hated they just weren’t as popular; but despite the rankings the pieces affected the entertainment in the 20’s for the best. The first great wave of American influence that came on Japanese popular music came before the Second World War and the rapid expansion of Japan’s record industry began in the late 1920’s. Imports of American records, and songs brought a wide amount of music into the culture of Japanese music creating mesmerizing pieces of Japanese popular
