Emmanuel Minto December 11, 2012 Mrs. Seltzer Language Arts-104 Compare and Contrast Essay The Outsiders book by S.E Hinton were eventually made into a movie. They were so much alike because they both were very good from the start. Some things that happened in the book, although they didn’t happen in the movie. You could really tell in both the book and movie the friendship and love with some people. If you watched the movie and read the book you might think the same thing, you might not, but here are the reasons that I think the book is better even if the movie wasn’t that bad either.
If the movie had more detail it would be more interesting. The book gave me a better picture. When I saw the movie it confused me because it didn’t have all the parts. If I just saw the movie I wouldn’t understand why Greasers and Socs were separated and why they hated each other. I think Cherry did a really good job; she fit the description really well I think.
| The Jilting of Granny Weatherall | Drama Essay | | Cassidy Soehnlein | 12/13/2012 | Professor Shoff ENC1102 | Drama opens many doors for directors because there is a whole new variety of devices one can use to portray a mood or get the reader to feel as the actors do. A book has a theme, symbols, falling actions, a subplot, and many more that are shared with films as well. However, when you read a book you are creating an image in your head as opposed to a film where the viewers are given the image in a completely different way. In Katherine Ann Porter's, The Jilting of Granny Weatherall, many symbols, themes and hints of foreshadowing are presented, but throughout my work I want to analyze all the conflicts that are introduced in this film and what the solutions to those problems are. Throughout the film, many conflicts arise with Granny Weatherall.
Throughout the film version of Proof, what happens to Catherine is very similar to what happens to her in Auburn’s play. However, the movie is different from the play because it shows the characters in a different light, it takes place in many different settings, and it adds more scenes than the play does. The story lines between the play and the movie have different plots, characters, scenery, and music/sound effects. You will want to read the play to get the best scenario, and leave the movie for the ones who really do not appreciate reading. First of all, the plot of the movie was somewhat similar to the play.
The same thing happens to Into the Wild. While these differences don’t make the movie bad, it produces a different type of McCandless. There are not just differences, but also many similarities between the book and the movie. The most significant difference that can be seen between the movie and the book is that the movie tries to incorporate a relationship between Chris McCandless and other people. The book is more of an autobiography of Chris taken from the notes and letters he wrote.
I've got to say it wasn't easy trying to figure out which one I liked best, but I got to say I liked the film much more prominent then the novel. To see the action and adventure come to life was astonishing. Once you watch it though you see lots of differences from the novel and the film. You might see some from the characters or from something else. You will have to read it your self, but I will give you some differences to give you an idea of it.
Both versions have similarities, but at the same time those similarities contrast both movies to show just how different they really are. The original sets a guideline for the plotline, scenes, and characters, but the remake of the movie added its own twist on those three categories. Another difference, and probably the most drastic, is the differences in the portrayals of the characters. In the original, the main character seemed to focus more on the production and magnitude of the movie he is producing. The main character was focused on making a movie that people will remember, rather than making a movie to get him rich.
The movie that I decided to watch was Hitch. I have seen this movie a few times. This time while watching the movie I actually paid more attention to the conflicts that was going on rather than just watching the movie. I have found the interpersonal conflict in the movie Hitch is miscommunication and misunderstanding. A lot of things could have been handled differently if only Hitch and Sara have communicated better.
It is different because in the movie the glass isn’t shot up on the trucks, but instead they were covered in blood. Also while watching the movie we see that the site of the drug deal was not far into the desert. In the novel it says that Llewyn Moss is somewhere in the middle of nowhere, so you can see that they over exaggerated in the novel a bit. In the novel No Country for Old Men the author did a better job at creating suspense than in the movie. In the novel, suspense is demonstrated a lot more then in the movie because in the movie they don’t spend much time explaining how the characters are feeling at certain points.
Shantel Wilson English Essay 2 Adaptation is the taking on of new skills or adjusting your own to make your environment suitable to live in. When making a book into a feature film there certain aspects of a book that are changed to fit all into a movie while maintaining the integrity and keeping the moral, plot, and meaning of the book. The book Pay It Forward was turned into a movie and of course additions and omissions were made but the plot and moral of the story remained the same. When comparing the book to the film the first thing to notice that was dramatically different was the name and description of the teacher. In the book his name is Ruben St. Clair and is a forty four year old black male who is also a war vet meanwhile the movie has him as a white male with burn scars all over his face named Eugene Simonet.
