Each serves its purpose well; the steel frame buildings just do so with more flair. I like to think that only a good movie would still be watched after fifty-three years. But, everything good about the book is missing or distorted (plot, characters, details). The plot is too convoluted to make a movie. But the movie of The Big Sleep is still a success and, well, a good movie, just because they changed the plot and the characters.
It is rare to find perfect harmony in both. Usually, I try to read the book before I see the movie because I find it disappoints me in the reverse. Fully capturing the essence of a novel on film can be very challenging. Novels, in general, offer more background and insight and allow more time for character development. The best way to decide if the mediums are closely related is to do a side by side comparison and see if the movie can hold the same value.
The Shawshank Redemption is an old movie that reveals the power of hope through an faithful innocent prisoner, Andy Dufresne. The movie was a little ambiguous for me when I watched the movie the first time, However, How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas Foster enlightened me and encouraged me to analysis the movie more in depth. Not only the story itself amazed me, also the settings, characterization, and diminutive details all seemed naturally and tactfully fit into the situation. Throughout the movie, a lot of examples that illustrate Thomas Foster’s techniques of reading appears. In the movie, after Andy Dufresne was put into the prison, he risked himself with life threatening to help a malicious officer all in return for some beers for his friends to drink on the roof.
Compare and Contrast esssy A great book is almost always followed by a movie. They have their similarities and we can always count on the differences. While many care for the visual aid the movie gives, others often care for a little more thinking that the book offers. In Madeline L’engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” the reader can spot major and minor differences between the book and movie, however with those differences the main storyline stay the same. The differences between the to are with the opening of the movie it doesn’t start off with the famous line “It was a dark and stormy night”, instead it starts with Meg in her back yard looking up at the stars having a flashback of shortly before her dad left.
Marissa McNally Dijana ENG3U-U 4 November 2013 The Strangers That Came To Town This short story is very heartfelt and compelling. Whether it is relatable to you or not you can easily feel sympathy towards the Duvitch family through their struggle with moving to a new town because the Duvitch family was the first of their nationality to settle in to this small smug town. In his short story “The Strangers That Came To Town” Ambrose Flock is showing that true freedom is about being accepted. Mr.Duvitch doesn’t have the ability to walk around town, by himself or with his family, without constantly being uncomfortable from the other locals. “It followed that the Syringa street young, meeting him on the street, sometimes stopped their noses as they passed him by – a form of torment all the more acute when Mr.Duvitch had to share it with the children that happened to be
Before publication, Skloot sent copies of the manuscript to Henrietta's family. She found that many of the younger generation were truly shocked and awed by Henrietta's family, and grateful to have the book written. Some members of the younger generation also read the book out loud to their elders, which opened a dialogue in the family. Skloot also mentions that Henrietta's family sometimes shows up at her speaking events, and even signs books, making them seem pretty comfortable with the experience. The family is also involved as consultants in the film to be made from the
All throughout the movie Ghost World directed by Terry Zwigoff, the reoccurring theme was nonconformity and the transition from adolescence to adulthood. The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be difficult, which caused Enid to not want to conform to societies expectations, but to be an individual who doesn’t care what other people think. On the other hand, her best friend Rebecca didn’t have a very hard time transitioning from childhood to being an adult. During the transition out of highschool to living on your own it can seem very overwhelming for young people and sometimes they take a little longer to find their path to success then other people. In the movie when Enid and Rebecca had an important meeting to go to, to see about
They have ratings that they use all of the time, which helps to keep movies of all types to be produced. It is wrong to say someone can’t see something because of age, but it is a step in the right direction and most parents would agree on some age ratings. People should be allowed to read and say what they want. The first amendment is widely abused in modern media and across the country. The format that they use for media related things isn’t fully prepared and has a multitude of flaws amongst it.
Chris obviously overcompensated with this trip to the wilderness of Alaska. Because Chris had this strong inferiority complex, he overcompensated it with something that caused him to lose his life. He went too far with his believes, he could of stopped right before Alaska and go home and write about his traveling around the country with no money and explain how he did to survive, but this was not Supertramp style, he went all the way
We have some private stuff that we don’t let others know. Some have strange fears that some don’t even know how it comes. For me, I have a lot of weird things that only my close friends or my family knows, and I’m sure everybody has it. I’m not those kind of person who has to watch all the horror movies that come out. I prefer the horror movies that have the good plot and understanding script.
