Films with lower information densities are analogues of short stories, and those with a bigger focus on exposition are comparable to novels. In this sense, the film 2001: A Space Odyssey is like a short story. The distinction is more apparent when compared to a heavily narrative-driven movie like Star Wars. While Star Wars begins with a literal “wall of text,” not a single line of narration is spoken in the beginning of 2001. Cryptic scenes like the "Dawn of Man" sequence and ending are presented as is, leaving the audience to decrypt their meaning themselves.
You don't always show friendship to just your friends but to everybody. My last example of friendship is when dally helped Johnny out of the fire. If he hadn’t helped him then Johnny would have died sooner in the book. Books can be different and the same as movies. In the book and movie there were many similarities and differences and many themes.
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.
No matter how hard directors and screenwriters try, it is impossible for any movie to be a perfect reflection of the detailed plot and intricate characters presented in a novel. I had watched the film adaption of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend prior to reading the book, I was very aware of major differences from the get go. The to main categories that I could see differences being placed in were emotion and action. Many aspects of the book were changed to emphasize both either emotion or action for the film. Considering pieces of literature cannot be easily transferred to the screen, few of these changes were very necessary.
The most effective of the film that represents the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald is the film “The Great Gatsby” directed by Baz Luhrmann (2013). In comparison, the “Midnight in Paris” directed by Woody Allen (2011), which did not have any effectiveness due to little reference to the actual novel. In Midnight in Paris, they did not reference the novel as much as they should have but the movie did great. Baz Luhrmann did more with the movie as like the book where characters mostly matched personalities. The Great Gatsby acted very close to the characters from the book, even though it was a movie and movies rarely follows the book.
Waqar Ahmed Instructor: Michael Joseph Dowdy UCO 1200 – The American Dream Section 141 November 6, 2013 The Great Gatsby Response 2 In the 143 minutes movie, there were several things that were totally different what I had imagined while reading the novel. Also some key scenarios were missing from the movie. While filming a novel, there are some key factors which are not supposed to be changed i.e. general appearance of the characters and the time span. In the movie, they changed both things in one way or another.
After the events Nick went through, it is understandable that he needs to talk about everything that happened. Based off the book, the movie is extremely similar. However, the flaws exist. Some of the scenes became over the top and extravagant. The scene at Myrtle and Tom’s apartment seemed slightly overdone.
The film Julius Caesar in 1953 by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar have versions that play different scenes and include the same settings on the play. In the film the director was making the scenes to be more visual than the play that William Shakespeare’s originally made. Moreover the play is preferable than the movie because in the play the reading has more detailed information, and the movie skipped some scenes. Accordingly the differences from the movie and the play is the tribunes are arrested in the movie, nevertheless in the play they just say they have been removed. The director of the movie did show the arrest, maybe because it’s an significant detail for the audience to
A lot of books are made into movies. Sometimes, the movie is an accurate representation of the characters, plot, and setting. Some movies, however, share very little with the book(s) they were based on. The first Percy Jackson movie is an example of an adaptation that did not correlate with the book by Rick Riordan. The differences between the Lightning Thief book and its movie include the appearance of the central characters, the personalities of the main characters, and the ending.
The movie by Roman Polanski doesn’t follow completely the movie setting. For example the duel between Macbeth and Macduff had a humorous side. The acting of the Actors was not the best and it could have possibly been better. Shakespeare introduced Macbeth as a hero, but on the film the acting from the actor John Finch (Macbeth) did not reflect this trait on his character. Although,
