Introduction According to most people, To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the greatest American novels with a saddening story that chronicles the trials of Atticus and his siblings, young Scout and Jem Finch. It’s fascinating to put emphasis on the fact that the stories of both the novel and the film take place in Maycomb, Alabama. When it was turned to a film, the director had to struggle with the challenges of creating a screenplay founded on the content of another medium. It’s hard to turn fictional characters into real people. Nonetheless, the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird was released in 1962, and it starred Mary Badham as Scout and Gregory Peck as Atticus.
What 's more, as much as the exceptional throwing improved the novel; the novel enhances the film experience by fleshing the plot and characters out to a considerably more significant degree. While almost every snippet of the film comes straightforwardly from Hammett 's novel, everything in the novel is excluded in the film. Upon re-watching the film subsequent to completing the book, I felt a great deal more required than amid past viewings. This was predominantly as a result of my insight into specific parts of the novel that were excluded from the film 's script. A portion of the inspirations and activities of the characters are a great deal all the more clear having perused the novel.
First of all, being very reclusive could be a trait related to Arthur Radley. He is a reclusive young man, who to the people of Maycomb, Alabama portrays very differently. An example that is given in To Kill a Mockingbird is when Miss Maudie’s house catches on fire, and Arthur puts a blanket around Scout: “Atticus said: you’re right. We’d better keep this and the blankets to ourselves. Scout can thank him for covering her up.” “Thank who?” I asked.
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.
T The Mist Compare and Contrast In 1980, the book The Mist, written by Stephen King, was released. It got very popular later on, so they decided to make it a movie 27 years later. The book is a horror tale following the life of David Drayton and a large group of civilians trying to survive a thick mist that has ‘enveloped the entire town. Not only can you barely see through it, but it contains some of the most out of this world creatures. Overall, the movie tells the same story as the book, but it definitely changes up some of the key parts of the story, and sometimes just adds completely new parts.
Compare and Contrast Huck Finn When a book is being adapted into a movie, changes have to be made, especially if doing the book identically would involve a three to four hour movie. What changes should be made? Are all the simplifications going to change the basic message and plot? In the case of the novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, there are many differences and similarities between the book and the Disney Home Videos version directed by Stephen Sommers. There are differences and similarities in the elements of plot, characters, and characterization.
The first time Boo goes out of his house is to put the blanket on Jem and Scout while they watch the fire at Miss.Maudie's house. "Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn’t know it when he put the blanket around you." (p.96) Atticus says this after Scout asks him who put the blanket around Jem and her. The second time Boo leaves his house is to save Scout and Jem from getting attacked by Mr.Euwell.
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social
“The Landlady” by Roald Dahl is a story of great deception , ignorance and appearance vs. reality infused in great writing. The story incorporates many themes and ideas that the author purposely included. The story is about a young boy who was visiting England but when he get there and settles into a bed and breakfast, he is in for a wild surprise. One of the themes the story proposes is deception. The passage states, “ He went right up and peered through the glass into the room, and the first thing he saw was a bright fire burning in the hearth.
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.
A common comparison made everyday is between books and movies. Many movies based on books leave out important details and scenarios disappointing the audience. In the futuristic short story, "Harrison Bergeron," by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., everyone is equal or average, what many people might consider a utopia. 2081 is a movie based on "Harrison Bergeron," and like any other book based movie, it excludes many details and alters many scenes changing the storyline. Personally, I found the book more appealing than the movie because of the specific details and description.
This gives Brick’s distaste for Maggie less justification in the movie version. Again this is because of the Motion Picture Production Code which said that special care had to be given to how marriage was treated. In conclusion, there were some changes made to make this into a movie. The omission of Brick’s possible homosexual relationship with Skipper is a big change. This lead to the added scene with Big Daddy and Brick which gave the movie a happier ending and gave characters closure.
Have you ever read a book and then watched a movie based on the book? If you have you will have noticed at least one thing that the movie did differently than the book. Whether it 's how the characters act, differences in a certain scene, or a completely different plot, there will always be something different between the two. The book “To Kill a Mockingbird” was written and published in 1960, two years later a movie based on the book came out. After reading the book and watching the movie there are many elements that have changed from the book to the movie.
Huxley and Atwood both used these to tell their story and have succeeded in using these techniques correctly; leaving the reader always wondering what will happen next. Both novels are fictional, however both are based on some non-fictional facts, which makes the novels more interesting. In Alias Grace, readers are always wondering whether or not Grace Marks committed the murders, each time the narrator changes, it changes the perspective of the reader which makes the reader more tied in. In Brave new world, Huxley chooses to add many details in the novel, however he does not tell readers what is actually happening in certain scenes, or who is narrating it, until two-thirds of the way, which also makes the readers think extra and wonder what is actually happening in the scene. In conclusion, although these two novels have differences, they both portray strong
In 2013, based off of the prestigious science fiction novel, Ender’s Game, was made into the movie. Generally, when a book is made into a movie, it doesn’t do the book justice. That was how I felt about the portrayal of the film. There were many plot holes, extra scenes that weren’t from the book, and the portrayal of the relationships between the characters weren’t accurate. The characters and relationships developed in the book differed from what was portrayed in the film.
