The Outsiders, by Se Hinton, was very different from the movie the Outsiders. The book gave a lot move description but I’m glad I saw the movie to get the actual picture in my head. I don’t think people should by separate by the way they look or how much money they have. All people have feelings. If the movie had more detail it would be more interesting.
Regan Coseni Mme Poliquin English – EAE 4U 11/11/11 Critical Review of Hamlet Films, Act 3: Zeffirelli vs. Branagh There are numerous different portrayals of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, whether they are in the form of films, books or theatrical plays, they are all better than the other in different aspects and for specific reasons. In this critical review, we will make a comparison of Act 3 between Franco Zeffirelli’s film version of “Hamlet” starring Mel Gibson and Kennith Branagh’s film version of “Hamlet” starring Branagh, himself. First, as far as faithfulness to sequence and language in comparison to the original written version of Act 3, Branagh’s is pretty well identical in both senses. On the other hand, Zeffirelli’s version switches a few things up. To start with, in the original version as well as Branagh’s version of “Hamlet”, the “To be or not to be” soliloquy comes before Hamlets encounter with Ophelia, where as in Zeffirelli’s version of the play, Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” soliloquy comes after the scene where he speaks with Ophelia.
Comparing the play with the movie, there are several differences in the way the characters are chosen, how they act and how the surrounding is set out. To start off, the main obvious difference between the book and the play is the different gender of the main character. As I´ve said, the main character in the play is Prospero while in the movie it’s a woman named Prospera. The decision to cast a woman in the part changes many of the dynamics between Prospero and others, like the father-daughter relationship vs. a mother-daughter relationship. Shakespeare used a male role as the main character in the play, as generally it is believed that as a man Prospero can show more strength, confidence and valor, while a woman was and is considered shier, weaker and more emotional.
Most of the tempos are extremely slow and a mellow romantic tone. There is sound in movies that are not to dramatize the scene but to rather notify the audience that this is an important scene coming up. There are specific elements that should evident, the movement and tone of actors must be believable to convey a story. After viewing trailer, two films come to mind in which the music, narrative, and structure was changed to present two very different themes, one of cheerfulness and the other of horror. The costumes, expressions and music executed, to get the desired end.
Film’s multimodal capacity to assert, describe and depict 1. Introduction 1.1 Overview It is the intention of this paper to illustrate how film’s multi-modal affordances allow some capacity to assert as well as depict. If the language of cinema is acknowledged then the issue becomes one of enquiring into the differing nature of description and assertion within film and the novel. Therefore, the paper will argue the case for the centrality of text and sound within cinema. In the analysis, examples will be drawn from a range of sources to contrast the inferential requirements of portrayals in each medium.
There are many other differences between Charles Frazier’s novel Cold Mountain and Anthony Minghella’s movie based upon the novel, I have only chosen a few. The key difference that I find interesting is the way the novel ends compared to that of the movie, there is no mentioning of love or thought for Inman in the novel while the movie portrays Ada as having a hard time be able to forget his presence. These differences are important because they can change how the audience perceives the novel in comparison to the
Take for example the film Fatal Attraction. The two endings to Fatal Attraction have been the topic of conflicting responses. In Thinking about Movies, Peter Lehman and William Luhr argue that its original ending is preferable to the release version. They explain that according
Though effective, the restlessness of the camera becomes confusing, slicing the action into short, sharp images that can mystify rather than illuminate. Such fervent action so soon into the film is dizzying and unexpected. Luhrmann attracts the audience with his lively cinema style, speeding up the action to hype up the confrontation and the rivalry of the two families alongside an intense soundtrack of contemporary and popular music. As a contemporary film director, Luhrmann clearly values the younger audience who would usually only come into contact with Shakespeare in a school environment. This could explain the roaring energy of car engines and elaborate guns instead of horses and swords originally used in earlier productions.
To solve this problem the developers usually release two versions of the same movie. A rated one for more mature and young audiences and an unrated one, which usually consists of vulgarity every few seconds. ! The consequences of censorship can be devastating to some people but not all. Some negatives of this are that it works against creativity, and it may intrude the privacy of some people.
This is done for several reasons which include the idea that an addition to the movie may enhance the story. *The book has more information about the story while movies are shortened and with less information. Also, for what the producer and director believe will enhance the entertainment aspect of the film, they made add information that was not at all seen in the book. So people should read the books before they watch the movie. The other aspect of the book vs the movie is the instant ability to re-read passages that at first the reader did not totally grasp.
