There are a multitude of differences between the novel and movie of Frankenstein that have distorted much of the original work of Mary Shelley. Many of the original intentions and details of the novel have been altered for the 1994 Kenneth Branaugh version of Frankenstein. Although these alterations are not as severe as the common changes of earlier Frankenstein films, they do restrict Mary Shelley's imaginative descriptions and deeper messages of her novel. Throughout the movie there are many changes in the plot and vision of main characters. First of all, the movie never portrays Caroline Beaufort as being the daughter of the unfortunate merchant, Beaufort.
In Disneys’ movie, there is Maleficent, an evil fairy who has an air of elegance surrounding her, when she’s not turning into a dragon that is, she is always accompanied by her raven and even has an army of little monsters. The one after Talia is instead a Queen, wife to the King, who takes a
Ophelia's Charater Ophelia enters the play almost as a fairytale figure. she is the poor or at least lower class girl in love with a prince. However, her story does not continue on these Cinderella-esque lines. Through no fault of her own,Ophelia is caught up in the courtly intrigue, and is one of the first victims of the corruption of Denmark occasioned by Claudius's murderous usurpation. Ophelia, as a girl of marriageable age would only have been a teenager.
Thirdly, the movie uses an inappropriate humor than Orwell’s novel. In comparison to George Orwell’s original novel Animal Farm, the film by John Halas and Joy Batchelor is a failure. Firstly, the movie Animal Farm is a failure in comparison to Orwell’s original version of Animal Farm, because it is a cartoon. The imagery that the movie uses is very basic, simple and directed towards a younger audience. Cartoons are typically directed towards children, however this movie is based on a very serious topic that most children are not aware of.
Ariel is a revolutionary. She’s an unapologetic rebel with her own feelings and desires which separates her from other princesses such as Cinderella, Snow white and Sleeping beauty. Thirdly, Ariel and her crush Prince Eric. Ariel is a sixteen year old girl who is bad at making good decisions about love. Also, Why doesn’t Prince Eric marry her soon of the bat?
These hallucinations are not just breaks from reality but a parallel reality which Nina creates. Also the character Lily had an interesting role to play. Though the film insists that she exists, I feel her existence is limited only to the dance company and not in any to Nina’s life. Lily being the embedment of black swan or Nina’s rival is all a part of Nina’s hallucination. There are certain evidences in the movie that might validate my theory.
Watching this film sent “creep vibes” through my body at several stages in the story. I did not suffer the same reaction from Chopin’s written version. The attempt to falsely introduce this work as a love story is a stretch from reality. In fact, the reader will struggle to find “Joy” anywhere in the film. The only time Louise smiles is when she is in some sort of fantasy world.
Both women find love, commit to love, lose love and suffer from heartache. Each character’s reaction to these scenarios are far from alike. Medea, Princes of Colchis and practicing sorceress, falls in love with Jason of Lolcus. On the hopes that Jason will whisk her away from Colchis, marry her and start a family, Medea uses her powers to acquire the Golden Fleece for Jason and clear their path for escape. She is so intent on fulfilling her desires that Medea kills her own brother and manipulates the death of a king during their flight from Colchis.
Even though Snow White is given the poisonous red apple, the effects do not last forever. She is eventually woken up when she receives a kiss from the Prince, which gives the audience the idea of “happily ever after.” Even though the evil queen does not fare as well, she also benefits from Disney’s soft-hearted version, as she does not actually die, but falls fall from a cliff as the dwarves chase her. Lightning strikes and she fades away. By staying away from the brutal images of death, the Disney version sticks with the innocence of its younger audience. The
(The actual cost ended up being well over 5Xs the amount estimated) Another issue that Disney had with the Paris location was the many cultural differences. An example of was the rule that the park did not allow alcoholic beverages inside of the park. In America it is unacceptable to drink in many public places but in the European culture this is viewed as reasonable. Disney went into the project with a very American view of European standards verses an actual native point of view. Disney took what they used to start other resorts in different regions and seemed to completely disregard the differences in the cultures.
