Change in the plot events and setting such as the death of Phineas, along with Gene’s emotional appeal are totally ruled out of the film, making it difficult for the viewer to enjoy. Peter Yates has captured many key points from the original novel of John Knowles A Separate Peace, but has left out some vital fragments of the narrative. Therefore, the film should have fewer moderations, keeping the viewers pleased plus having the original storyline still
It is like any other death in a movie. There becomes no connection created with the character in the film. But when Tom dies it is the most surprising and shocking event. The reason is probably because the film had a certain amount of time to cram the whole book in so they had to shorten the events such as To Robinson’s death. The movie detector still altered the scene without knowing that it may have an impact on the film’s mood.
The themes of the movie weren’t gradiently produced but rather plunged right into in the movie. For example, when Scout stood up for Atticus when the locals were going to go into the station and kill Tom it was shown in the first 15-25 minutes of the movie. In the book that scene of innocence wasn’t shown until further chapters, thus proving that the theme of innocence was thrown at the audience in the movie. This caused the audience to not know the full development of the theme, but in the book, the readers can grasp the central theme of innocence. The other theme Good vs.
Interpretation of this film will depend greatly on when the viewer is watching it and what they believe about the world; a modern watcher of High Noon might view it as a thinly-vailed reference to the French refusal to support the war in Iraq. Another viewer could also take it as a reference to the Iraq war, but view Kane as a satirical, tragic hero, fighting a battle he didn't need to fight for a group that didn't need to be defended. Yet another viewer could see an attempt to subvert traditional western tropes, and think nothing of what the allegorical intent was. None of these viewers are wrong. Any meaning to be taken from a piece of work is the sole product of the viewer, and ultimately has little to do with what the writer meant to
Multiple people found it difficult to watch and pay attention to this movie because of the lack of emotion, effort, and the horrible acting. Because of these reasons and more, it proves that the film produced in the year 2000 was less thankful and appreciative of the work Fitzgerald had done. The 2013 movie was better in the idea of assuring that the actors were proud of the character they were to portray. Since there was hardly any effort and emotion put into the filming of the first big screen, this helped to show that the director cared little about the actual story. Overall, the 2013 movie portrayed the book much better.
His motives do not make him a tragic hero. Although he died while serving his country, that does not make him hero. In conclusion, Valdez writes this play to entertain and to teach the audience the dangers of glamorizing war. Young people in the 1960’s would have responded in shock because of the realism of the play. This play is still relevant today since it can relate to any person.
Culture Affecting the Idea of Fate and Freewill Most people today no longer have beliefs in prophecies but Macbeth and Oedipus do just that. The Tragedy of Macbeth written by William Shakespeare and Oedipus Rex written by Sophocles both introduce the idea of fate and freewill. Although Oedipus is influenced by fate and Macbeth is influenced by freewill, both cultures, Ancient Greece and the Elizabethan Era, influenced their belief in prophecies. Oedipus did not purposely choose to murder his father or bed his mother, he was purely oblivious to these facts. His fate was already established by his true parents.
Huckleberry Finn is the perfect bildungsroman novel, but it does not complete the hero’s archetype. In a perfect world Huck would have returned to society, spreading his story and how to overcome to social implication that is slavery. Unfortunately, Huck does not return to spread his new philosophy, but instead turns to the west so that his Aunt Sally can not civilize him. This is definitely an odd ending; most novels end with the hero returning to their family or teaching others how to live the way the hero has months. The hero typically scatters their story and morals out to others, but Huck does not.
"It's when you know you're licked before you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”(Lee 149). Atticus has no chance of winning the Tom Robinson case, because of society's views on African Americans, but he tries the case anyways because he knows it’s the right thing to do. While some may say that Atticus is unloyal to his portrayed character due to his drastic role change in Go Set A Watchman, many critics say that even though To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set A Watchman have the same characters, the two books were never meant to be perceived as a set, due to the fact that almost everything in Go Set A Watchman contradicts Lee’s original views on Social Justice in To Kill a Mockingbird. “Allegedly, it's a recently discovered first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, but I'm suspicious: It reads much more like a failed sequel.”(Corrigan 1). In To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee chooses to present the idea of what should happen, a feeling of hopefulness, whereas in Go Set A Watchman the plot is presented as what is happening, not what should be happening, and has little to no relation to the Atticus found in To Kill a
Despite our western world being heavily influenced by the Greek and Roman society, we have changed the myths of their would to fit the morals of monogamy, heroism, and good vs evil. One of the differences between the myth and the movie can be seen right in the beginning. Hercules is the son of Zeus and Hera, and not Zeus and one of his many mortal wives. Hera even cares about him, and so does Zeus. They have a party and everything.
On page 154 Robin says, “I hadn’t thought about it much, but Jonesy was right. We needed one another to get out of this war alive. We needed one another and whole lot of luck.” Robin explains that to get through a time of stress and life changing images, they need one another to get through it or else they wouldn’t make it since war is just too much for one person to comprehend. Harris says that he doesn’t need them earlier in the scene, but Robin explains that nobody would make it by themselves. The author uses historical fiction to build up bonds between the characters to show how much they have to rely on each other during war.
