"Outsiders" Compare and Contrast Essay The “ Outsiders” movie and novel are awkward and interesting. Upon watching both they appeared to be somewhat similar. However, after finishing the movie and having time to reflect they have distinct differences.
Nothing gold can ever stay. This is the main quote from The Outsiders. The Outsiders is about the rising feud between two social groups. One social group is called the Greaser, and the other group is called Socs. During the story it is about to Greasers, Ponyboy and Johnny, journey. Pony and Johnny were in need of help which lead to a death of a Socs. In the book the other seven main Greasers help them escape, and go into hiding till the ongoing feud calms down. The book, and the movie had similarities and differences as well.
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”
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.
This is my writing assignment comparing The Outsiders movie and book. My favorite quote was“Stay gold Ponyboy” which means Do not go tuff and stay like yourself because you are once in a lifetime. My opinion of both the movie and the book are pretty good. The book was only a little better because it was longer and it had more parts on the other hand the movie you can hear and see more and feel more when you can actually picture it.
There are also a few similarities between the book and the movie like how Kenny almost drowns in both. Another thing that is in both the movie and the book is that Kenny sees a little girl trapped in the church. Also in both the book and the movie Kenny hides behind the couch. The bombing at the church happens in both the book and the movie. A big similarity is that in both the book and the movie Joey leaves the church before it blows up.
In 1983, Francis Ford Coppola created the film version of S.E. Hinton’s book The Outsiders. In the movie and the book, the story takes place in a town where people are segregated by where they live. People on the east side were called greasers, and people on the west side were referred to as the socs. The main character remains the same in both the movie and the novel; his name is Ponyboy. In the book, and the story basically the same thing happens to Ponyboy, with a couple differences sprinkled here, and there. Throughout the book, and the novel it is clear that there are many similarities, and differences. There are 3 major changes that affect the story. One change that greatly affects the story is Mickey Mouse isn’t in the book. Another
In the beginning the book ponyboy grows up hating the Socs. The Socs have have all the power and money and ponyboy hates them for this and also hates them because they are always picking on and fighting greasers. They do this because they think that they they’re better than the greasers. He hates them even more after he gets jumped. “I fought to get
One huge difference in the setting, in the book the story takes place on the shore of lake Michigan in a brand new apartment building in a small town. On the other hand the movie takes place old, run down apartment in the middle of a huge city. Another example is the characters, in the book there are 16 heirs with eight pairs. In the movie there are 10 heirs and 5 pairs. Also the movie leaves out some huge characters like Theo Theodorakis, Flora Baumbach, and
One of the differences is that they were fighting a monster in the book but in the movie they were fighting a man, that acted like an animal. In the book the monster was a dragon that they had to fight. In the movie the monster was like a man, but wore animal skin clothes and had paint all over there face. They both were fought in the same way in both the
Pony sees the article about him in the paper, and realizes he needs to be present at court for his actions. This risks the chance of the three brothers being allowed to continue living together. Surprisingly, all they said about Dally was how he was a hero. Soda tells Pony that they are going to have a party after the rumble where the greasers get rid of the Socs for good, after this everyone leaves and Two-bit is left to babysit Pony. While out with Two-bit, Pony spots a few Socs, Randy (Marcia’s boyfriend) being one of them.
As Ponyboy was getting attacked, the rest of the Greasers (Dally, Steve, Darry, Sodapop, Two-Bit, and Johnny) showed up at the scene to protect Ponyboy. The gang had successfully outnumbered and scared the Socs off by hurling rocks at them, saving Ponyboy. This shows that the gang takes pride in making sure that they are together when tensions rise. Another event that conveys how the gang fought to defend
My final is about the difference between the book and the movie “The Outsiders.” This next paragraph is about the description difference between the book and movie. Then the paragraph after that will be about the description of the background or cars that the characters drive or live in. I think that the move and the book where basted of the same story but I think that when the directors made the movie with some different cars or house that can change the movie or they put different things in it so that the movie will look better. Altogether the movie and the book were pretty good and had good meaning to it about want to think of life and it’s alright to not be tough and hard.
