Yes, the basics of the plot are similar, but in the movie, there are changed details, mainly like missing scenes in the movie that the book originally had, or simplified events. In the movie, there was an additional girl character that was not in the book. The house Moon eventually came to at the end of the story was supposed to be a brick house. Some of the things the characters in the movie said were a bit different from what was said in the book. Things like that. And, details were added and deleted in the transition from the book to movie
Arguably, the greatest differences were in the events or plot. In the novel, there was a scene where Mr. Halloway shot and killed the Dust Witch with his smile. Also, Mr. Halloway broke all the mirrors in the Mirror Maze with his laughter, instead of punching the glass in the movie. Finally, in the movie, there was a massive tornado that tore down the carnival, yet there
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
Although the plot has the same ending in both the book and the movies, the actual ending moments of each pieces of them are different in several ways. The movie ends with a flashback but the book ends with a dialogue and a line.
Another similarity is that Ponyboy 's parents were killed in an automobile accident. In both the movie and the book is the heroic attribute of both Johnny and Ponyboy saving those kids in the burning church. Another thing that is the same is that after the rumble Dally and Ponyboy go and see Johnny, and after he dies, Dally goes and robs a store and is then shot down by the police.
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”
In the story The Outsiders written by S.E Hinton, there are two rival groups/ gangs, the greasers and the Socs. A young boy named Ponyboy explained his journey being a greaser and the sacrifices, consequences, and decisions he had to manage with. This story reminds me of William Shakespeare's story Romeo and Juliet of their similarities which are they gangs, fights, and loyalty and differences that are the wealthiness, behaviors, and between the two books.
In my opinion there are a lot of comparisons between the film and the book, but there are also differences between them too, but also they have impacted the audience in both the film and the
The well known romantic story, “The Notebook,” written by the novelist, Nicholas Sparks, portrays two people falling in love during the 1940s. The book was written in 1996 and the movie was released in 2004. Nicholas Sparks was inspired by a real life couple and that is why the movie is so realistic. The main characters Noah Calhoun and Allie Hamilton are played by popular young actors, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Though the book and movie are based on the same love story, they have many differences, some minor and some major. The movie is much more detailed, while the book is very simple, but both options are a great choice to experience for any reader who enjoys romantic stories.
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.
The connections can be made between Anton and Ponyboy from the Outsiders is many things. Like how they are both smart and were not really expected to succeed, such as Anton grew up in a black neighborhood and his mom was a drug addict and was surrounded by drug dealers flossing off with drug money and he became a dealer and went to jail, but he overcame all that and graduated, Ponyboy came up from a greaser neighborhood, he was a greaser (poor and looked down upon the sources) they are all classified as drop out lowlife scums but Ponyboy is smart and is going to succeed
In the movie, a scene was added to the book, the scene when Mrs. Foster and Winnie go to the bread shop. Another difference in the scene is that the book doesn’t include the scene at the bar were Miles is playing cards with another person. As well as the scene of the campfire and the dancing with Jesse and Winnie. Differences can also be in actions and what the actors say just like when Jesse and Winnie jump into the lake in the movie, and in the book Miles and Jesse jump into the lake, Jesse also tell Winnie the secret and Miles tells the story in detail instead of Mae, they didn’t discuss who takes Winnie to the lake, but in the book they do, the constable doesn’t go with the man in the yellow suit but Mr. Foster and his people do and on the other hand the constable went. Another Jesse never gives the bottle to Winnie but in the book he does, also the man in the yellow suit shoots Jesse with a gun and Jesse shows him he has everlasting life. In the movie Mae AND Tuck go to jail and in the book only Mae goes to jail, the plan of helping Mae AND Tuck get free from jail is different from the movie, finally Winnie doesn’t give the spring water to toad and in book she does. A difference can also be in the setting. For example the outside of the Foster’s home is super neat in the movie but super dirty in the
To Kill A Mockingbird is a novel written by Harper Lee and The Outsiders is a novel written by S. E. Hinton. These books both have many similarities and differences. For instance, they both have a lot of prejudice in them, but different types. In TKAM, it is more racial and in The Outsiders it is more social prejudice. There are many more similarities and differences.
Both books are based on young teenage boys that live in a small town and don’t have anyone else but each other and school is not an importance to either of the characters in each book. Throughout the book of The Outsiders the comparison book, I read that the character Ponyboy had the similarity of going to school but got into the habit of ditching so the setting in that book mainly took place outside and him not going or leaving school. In the text he states “ ...i’m not ever going to be able to make up the schoolwork i’ve missed” (Hinton 134). Ponyboy who was viewed as the only character who enjoyed getting an education and everyone saw him as the “smartypants” of the who group and or gang, but even he at one point was anti-school and either ditched or just didn't go and spend most of his time out and about like the character from JERK California Sam, who then states “...i’ll be out of school and I won’t care” (Frieser 16). In my independent I also noticed a common setting once he stated this because as he was leaving school these were his thoughts and he went for a run instead of going to the rest of his
Many people argue that “the book is better than the movie,” or “the movie is better than the book” when a book is adapted into film. In my opinion, literature can be just as scary as films or tv, if it is done correctly. There are certain elements that any horror story needs, whether in the form of a book or movie. Things like plot, suspense, and good use of description are essential to any good story.
