The Titanic, most definitely man’s greatest accomplishment, is made in Belfast, Ireland, where it is then set off into the open ocean, and set for Southampton, England. From there, on April 11, 1912, 2:00 p.m., the Titanic sets sail for New York. All seems well, and it looks for the first time, that man has built the “unsinkable ship.” However, the hopes, lives, ship and all are cut down by an iceberg and now rest at the bottom of the Atlantic. This horrendous fact was shown in both the book and the movie, “A Night to Remember,” along with many other facts and stories. Despite the many similarities between the two types of media, there were also many differences. As one can see, the novel written by Walter Lord and the screenplay directed by Roy Ward Baker has some very striking similarities and some very
A similarity that I found to be the same between the book and the movie was when juror eight brought in the two knives during the jury discussion. In the story, the eighth juror was attempting to convince the other jurors that there was a possibility that while the boy may have had the knife on him the night of the murder, he could have dropped it and someone else may have picked it up or someone else may have had the same knife and stabbed the boy’s father. The fourth juror had brought out the actual knife, jammed it into the
There is, in fact, an abundance of differences between them regarding the plot, setting, and characters. The setting of the story is based on a farm in Great Britain, near the ocean whereas the setting of the movie was in San Francisco, California, although both San Francisco and the farm in Great Britain are near the ocean. The plot of the story consisted of a humble farmer who was, along with his family and everyone else in Great Britain, were attacked by gargantuan flocks of birds. The story followed the farmer and his journey with his family to try and survive this bird-pocalypse. The plot of the movie consisted of a wealthy city-slicker woman who was intrigued by a man and sought him out until she found him in his hometown two hours away, in a rural town named Bodega Bay. The woman stayed there just in time for the onslaught of bird attacks on the small town and apparently developed a romance with the man. The characters of the story and the movie were quite different as well. The main character of the story was named Nat, and he was a farmer. The main character of the movie was named Melanie, and she was a rich city girl. Melanie was very dependant who relied on her money to do the work for her, whereas Nat was quite independent, taking tasks into his own hands. The movie drifts away from the story in ways that are understandable, the director of the movie, Alfred
The short story and film version of The Most Dangerous Game contain both similarities and differences. There are always going to be changes form book to movie no matter what. The plot of both of these is the same though; A man is lost on an island and meets General Zaroff. The man is very fortunate at the time because General Zaroff is welcoming. The man is introduced to a hunting game in which he is being hunted and things get thrilling from there.
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.
Alabama Moon is about a boy named Moon Blake (dubbed Alabama Moon by the general public), a recently orphaned boy. For his whole life, he and his father have lived together in the forest, away from the government. Now he's ten years old, with only what his father taught him and told him to do: 1. How to survive in the wilderness without having to rely on others, 2. Run away from the law (for him, the other way of saying “government”), 3. Go to Alaska.
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”
Have you ever rode in a car for more than 24 hours? The plot in the book of “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, is about a family going on a trip to Birmingham in 1963 and experience an event that makes them see how wrong color in the south are treated. The plot in the movie is more about how colored had been fighting for their rights and all the event leading up to everyone becoming equal. In “Watson’s Go To Birmingham”, lots of events changed the plot like the movie is focused mainly on Civil Rights while the book isn 't, but Joey leaves the church before it blows up in both, so there are some similarities.
The novel The Lone Ranger and the Fistfight in Tonto and the film Smoke Signals are very similar in many aspects but have some key difference as well. The main differences occur in the situation where the characters had a choice. The first situation is where Victor and Thomas is the book decided to abruptly leave the Trailer in which they were staying while in the film Alexie chose to stay there. This lead to some character development where Alexie shared some of his stories such as the one about the basketball game. Another difference is throughout the film it is shown that Victor and Thomas have a more strained and aggressive relationship this can be seen in the scene when they're in the truck and Thomas yelled at Victor and showed aggression that wasn't seen in the novel; in the novel Thomas and Victor have a more respectful relationship with one another. Since Thomas is a lot more passive in the novel his stories are more easily understood. The biggest similarity in the book had to be the plot line where Victor's father dies in Arizona and he needed the help of Thomas to pick up his ashes. The difference is how they traveled to Arizona, in the film it was by bus in the novel it was by plane. Another difference in the amount of money Victor was given in the film he says his mother gave him fourth dollars in the novel he was given one hundred by the tribe. All in all the largest difference would be the origination
In this film called The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and a book called Jasper Jones written by Craig Silvey they will be comparing and contrasting the use of themes in the film and the book. Revenge in The Dressmaker happens when Tilly burned the town; in Jasper Jones Eliza burned her home. Then in Family Tilly and Molly has a rough start but when Tilly came back they turned out to be happy with each other, while in Jasper Jones Charlies mum and Charlie are happy at the start but went downhill very quickly when Laura disappeared. The themes are revenge, death, and family.
There are several distinct differences, as well as similarities, between the TWM book and the TWM movie. The main differences between the book and movie are Mitch and Janine’s relationship, the order and the location of the topics discussed, and Mitch’s job did not go on strike in the book. The main similarities are the aphorisms, the tape recorder, and the topics discussed.
High Noon, which was written by Carl Foreman, is a film about a marshal who has to protect his town and himself from a man who is returning from prison on the noon train for revenge with the help of his gang. “The Most Dangerous Game,” which was written by Richard Connell, is a short story about a man who ends up on an island known as ‘Ship Trap Island’ and has to survive from an expert hunter for three days by hiding from the hunter, his dogs, and his accomplice. Even though High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are stories that have little in common, there are instances where we see similarities between the two settings; the protagonists and conflicts also have many differences.
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
My theory on The Westing Game is Flora Baumbach is the killer. I believe she is the killer because she was super excited when she found out Turtle was here partner (pg. 33). Her next victim could be Turtle for kicking her in the shin. She also would want to kill Sam because of his daughter's wedding.
