For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters. I think it was creative of her to reference a well-known philosopher and that she was able to use it to have the reader thinking about movies they’ve watched and figure out whether they’ve actually seen any movie at all with a feminine monster and if they did, then they’d compare them to the masculine monster causing the reader to think even more!
Why do people always say that the book was better than the movie? Film makers tend to get a bad reputation about ruining books by making them into movies. However, that may not always be the case. Some books can be considered to follow the storyline very well, like the in the story The Secret Life of Bee’s. Despite the fact that the Daughters of Mary had no impact in the movie, the film was still a faithful adaptation of the book because of the similarities of Lily’s relationship with August, and the outcome of the altercation with T-Ray.
“Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different.”-Stephen King. This relates to, The Hobbit, because Tolkien and Jackson had many different thoughts and each put them in their own version of, The Hobbit. Many people who just go for the movie will not notice a thing. Sometimes the director improves the movie or sometimes the changes make the movie worse.
“Ask any reader who has seen the movie version of a favorite novel, and the answer will usually be, "The book was better." That 's because readers of a novel have already made their own perfect movie version” (Corliss et al., 2005). It would appear that Corliss is correct because many people who have read The Hunger Games book would say that it is better than the movie. Although the Hunger Games movie is entertaining, it is very different from the book. There are details left out of the movie that were in the book, the movie doesn 't demonstrate the ongoing theme of hunger as well as the book does, and the the movie does a better job with
Suspicion can be fascinating but haunting. Since Victorian times, the suspicious death case of Sir Charles Baskerville in The Hound of the Baskerville has intrigued/compelled vast amounts of readers. However, recent audiences are more compelled to stories with a modern twist of horror and gruesomeness. Because of less main characters, a fast-paced plot, and the differing point of view of Atwood’s The Hound of the Baskervilles film adaptation, the film has a frightening, intriguing mood with a new perspective compared to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original novel. The novel’s point of view is Watson’s perspective, whereas the film adaptation is told in third person, making the events less involved with Watson.
While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the movie was more effective in telling the story. To begin the movie scene was better, because the music and sound effects you really get to see what's going on in the movie and get a better picture in the movie than the book. “Somebody kicked me hard in the ribs and I yelped in spite of myself. some soc had knocked me out one of the four bunched and was kicking me as hard as he can.” In both the movie and the book in this
When dividing the book and movie of Enders Game into sections, we can clearly see that the movie was far more better than the book, at least visually. Not only did the movie show us greater details than the book, it also gave us an idea of what the characters and settings looked like. Some scenes that prove that the movie is richer in quality than the book; is the fight with the buggers at the beginning, the battle room scene with salamander and leopard army, and when Ender goes on the Bugger 's planet to talk to the queen. Let 's begin from the movie with the scene of the bugger 's invasion. At the beginning of the movie, we see the Formics ' (buggers) attacking Earth.
Have you ever read a book, and thought this would be a wonderful movie? Well, that’s not always the case due to when someone watches a movie that’s based on a book, nine times out of ten they come home disappointed. Although, in certain cases, the book and the movie come close to being the same. The crucible play and movie are fairly similar in numerous aspects and one could watch the movie and understand the main points of the play. When deciding between books and movies, picking the book is better because books retain more detail in the dialogue and setting, and reading the book can give one a valuable understanding of the message in the story.
Arthur Miller was an award-winning author, who wrote many plays over the course of his life. In 1953, he wrote a play called The Crucible. His intention in writing this play was to give readers insight into the, “strangest and most awful chapters in human history” (Miller back cover), or in other words, the Salem witch hunts and trials of the seventeenth century. The Crucible is based on real events and historical people and reflects the anti-communist hysteria based around the supposed witchcraft that was happening in Salem at that time. In 1996, a film based off of Arthur Miller’s play, also called The Crucible, was released.
Lonna Leep never came to the ceremony in the movie, but in the book she came to the ceremony. Officer Delinko never got promoted to detective, but in the movie he did get promoted. I hope you liked my essay, now I will say my opinion I really like the book Better than the movie by a long shot. The movie just went to fast and was missing a lot of details from the movie and it was changing different details and I just didn’t like that. The book just made for sense to me then the movie.
