Movie vs. Book Bless Me Ultima

...dies. Throughout the book and movie, Antonio constantly struggles between choosing his mother’s wish for him to become a priest or becoming vaquero like the men on his father’s side of the family. Each of these choices were equally honorable. There is also an ongoing battle between good and evil in the village; Ultima, representing the good being, and the evil of Tenorio and his witch daughters. In the end, as in all good stories, good destroys evil and Antonio recognizes that change has brought him peace. He understands wisdom and has a better understanding of his reality. I found that there were more similarities between the book and the movie than there were differences. Although, I noticed in the movie that the Golden Carp was nonexistent compared to the written literature. In the book, the Golden Carp was God-like to Antonio where he was constantly going back and forth between the beliefs of God and the ways of the Golden Carp. Anaya states, “The orange of the golden carp appeared at the edge of the pond. As he came out of the darkness of the pond the sun caught his shiny scales and the light reflected orange and yellow and red. He swam very close to our feet. His body was round and smooth in the clear water. We watched in silence at the beauty and grandeur of the great fish" (p. 115). When Antonio sees the Golden Carp for the first time, he starts to question his own religion because Cico describes the Golden Carp as a god. However, in the movie, there was no......

The Book of Eli Movie Review

...Eng 152 Professor Snyder The Book of Eli With December 21st 2012 (speculated date at which the world ends) coming closer, and the amount of post-apocalyptic films coming out, some avid movie viewers might already be jaded with these types of films by now. This movie directed by the Hughes Brothers, shows a clear and accurate depiction of the power of the Bible in broken times. The Book of Eli is not your average post-apocalyptic film. From the melodic soundtrack, to the astonishing performance delivered by Denzel Washington, “The Book of Eli” is certainly a must watch! The Plot of the movie is carefully crafted, and it is easy to tell that the directors and producers all took their time before putting together this intricate plot. “The Book of Eli” takes place several years after a nuclear holocaust. The lone man named Eli (played by Denzel Washington) wanders the desert nuclear wasteland, living on what he can find and disposing of any marauders who give him any problems. After traveling west for a few years Eli arrives in a small town. Eli comes to the attention of the town’s leader named Carnegie after killing several attackers in the local bar. Carnegie sends the attractive Solara (Played by Mila Kunis) to seduce Eli and to try to convince him to stay, seeing that Eli has an enormous amount of combat skills. Carnegie later learns that Eli has one of the last known copies of the Bible; which determines Carnegie to obtain this book at all costs. Eli survives......

Movie vs. Play: the God of Carnage

...Annette vs. Nancy When taking the time to examine the characters of Annette Reille, from the play, and Nancy Cowan, from Carnage, it is easy to find their likenesses, but there are also some noticeable differences. One of the main reasons for all of these differences is merely different interpretations of the character by different readers. For example, the tone in which certain lines are said or in the way a certain action is portrayed can change the whole personality of a character. When reading, the reader portrays each of the characters as he/ she believes them to be, but then another reader could have a difference of opinion and change the whole attitude; this was the case if you consider the readers to be myself and Kate Winslet. Although Annette often appears to be conciliatory, her counterpart Nancy seems more invested in ending in the conflict. In the play Annette is trying to work out the situation going on between the boys with no conflict between the parents, and this conciliatory side is shown many times throughout the play. One of the times we realize Annette is trying to keep the peace is in the beginning when she says to Veronique “We should be thanking you. We should” (Reza1258). Annette says this as a response to Veronique, after she finishes “discretely” bragging about how she and Michel handled the situation. She is very complimentary of Veronique, which is her way of keeping things calm. This line, along with others, shows Annette agreeing with these...

Comparison : the Reader, Book and Movie

...ompar Comparison between 'The reader' – Book/Movie Usually when it comes to books and movies books are a lot more detailed and descriptive towards characters and their feelings. Movies usually cut out important parts or aren't as deep as a book. In this case i felt that the movie was very much alike to the book and included all emotions and important scenes, what i really liked also was that the story line wasn't changed in the movie. They emphasized really well Hanna and Michaels relationship in a way i thought wouldn't be possible. They managed to portray their relationship exactly how it was explained in the book, every detail came across to the viewers and also made it a lot easier to understand the book itself in ways one couldn't before seeing the movie. I thought they wouldn't emphasize the fact that Hanna was illiterate but they really made that come across well therefore the whole movie had better understanding as did the book. I do feel that the book was much slower with the reading between Michael and Hanna but in a way that was well done because then the movie would have become too slow and gotten a bit boring. It's different in the book because you expect that slowness but it was good that in the film they put together most of that in a few minutes, still emphasizing it. The book made some scenes more intimate of course because its hard to get that across in a film. They portray feelings very well for example when Hanna dies that gets across very well......

Enders Game Book Compared to Movie

...Game is a well known science-fiction genre book that is most popular with the young-adult reader demographic. The novel was published in 1985 and written by the American author Orson Scott Card (Card). The official website of Orson Scott Card states that Ender’s Game was the winner of both the Nebula and Hugo awards for best novel in 1985 and 1986, respectively (OSC). In November of 2013 the movie adaption was released to the public with a runtime of one hour and fifty-four minutes and was met with mixed reviews garnishing only a “74% fresh” on the movie critics site (Rotten). Like many books that are adapted into movies, fans and critics usually side with the book being a better portrayal of the story than the movie version. Dennis Schwartz, a movie critic from Ozus' World Movie Reviews, expresses his views on the comparison between the movie and book by writing, “Might have worked as a clever thought-provoking read, on film it's a drag” (Schwartz). This common occurrence of the book being better than the movie can be easily explained by remembering that a movie should usually stay around the two hour time mark and that money is a big factor in adapting a book. The major differences between the book and the movie are that Ender’s timeline is completely changed, Ender is portrayed to be a more likable character, and that the cutaways back to Earth with Ender’s siblings Peter and Valentine are completely cut from the movie. These can all be explained through......

Crucible: Movie vs Novel

...Crucible: Movie Vs. Novel Two thumbs up for Crucible, one to the movie and one to the novel. Both amazing and well worth your time. This story will keep you intrigued with quenched fists. The picture, derived from Arthur Miller’s classic novel, is slightly predictable to those who read the book, but is compensated for with astonishing acting and terrific cast. For the preponderance, the script of the movie follows that of the novel. The bare bones of the picture discretely parallel 17th century Salem witch trials to 1950’s communism. Thus, achieved by interrogation, manipulation, betrayal and encouragement of betrayal between characters. For instance, in both the novel and movie, the girls turn on one another, while John Proctor ends the whole affair by owning up to a mistake he’d never made, but is not freed because he didn’t resort to invoking another victim’s name. One key difference between Crucible, the novel and “crucible”, the movie is the emphasis on the affair between Proctor and Abigail Williams. The book mentioned it and while it was a main detail of the novel, it wasn’t the core like it had been in the movie. And while the affair is one of the few differences between the two, little differentiations were picked up in the details of the situation, like the repetitively mentioned fact, that they never touched, in the novel and came in physical contact multiple times in the film. While both the book and the picture were very similar, there were......

Book vs Movie the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

...The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo The 2011 adaptation, by David Fincher, a director known for making fast pace thrillers prefers to convey the important parts of the movie through silence. For describing the locale and scenes In the book every scene and locale is explained thoroughly through the means of words. But in the movie the Director chooses silence over words and gives the viewer opportunity to frame things in his mind on his own way. Right at the beginning of the movie silence is used to show the locale of where the events of the story take place. The scene of winter season, snow all around, the sound of the freezing wind blowing was enough to tell about the locale. The decorated houses, the happiness prevailed spoke for the Christmas season and the on goings of the millennium. When Blomkvist visits Henrik’s house for the first time there is a considerable pause in the scene just to give the audience a view of the place where Blomkvist was about to go. The silence explained his feelings, his perplexion at that moment. In a similar fashion the happenings of the bar where Lisbeth goes at the beginning were explained just like that. Henrik’s flashbacks were a great source of information. They spoke a lot about the island, its inhabitants and the happenings of the past. Through those flashbacks the entire Vanger family was introduced. Blomkvist’s early morning strolls, Lisbeth’s wanderings also proved helpful in adding a different prospect to a scene’s use.

Why auxiliary verb needed people still reading books, and others are prefer watching should be an infinitive not a gerund the movies?

A mind is filled with questionspunctuation and as the wheels in your head are turning, your brain is being put to more use rather than if you let it go numb during a movie.

Book Theif Movie Review

...“The Book Thief” Movie Reflection People always say 'the book is so much better than the movie'. In The Book Thief’s case, I agree with this statement. In my opinion, I think the original novel that Markus Zusak wrote was more captivating and told the story in a more fascinating way, including narration by Death and many other important details that were not included in the movie. For this reason, the movie did not do the book justice. Unlike the book, it felt like it was rushing through events in the beginning and the ending of the movie, but in the middle it felt slow and a little dull. The movie was still good, but I don't think it was as good as it could have been. As I mentioned before, many events from the original story were not in the movie. Some events that were in the movie got altered, which, to me, changed some effects of the story. An example of this would be when Hans stood up for the Jewish store owner getting beat by a Nazi, where in the book Hans courageously gave a Jewish man a piece of bread. The way it was written in the book seemed like more of a risk because it put his whole family in jeopardy, whereas in the movie it didn't seem as heroic. Also Alex Steiner and Hans should have left for the service at the same time, like in the book, because then Liesel and Rudy could have made a connection over their missing fathers. Although the movie made many changes, in some ways it also modified the book in a good way. One scene not in book was where Rudy and......

Comparison of Little Women Book and Movie

...prominent changes is the theme of morality; the movie removes a lot of the morality present in the book. In the beginning of the book, the girls are set a moral goal by their father: “conquer themselves so beautifully that when I come back to them I may be fonder and prouder than ever of my little women” (Alcott chapter 1). This is a very important scene of the book but the movie does not make any reference to this goal. Even though I feel like the book over-emphasized morality, by removing a lot of that morality, the movie removes the piety from the family and doesn’t sow the journey the girls make from little girls into little women, which is the crux of the book. The movie seldom talks about religion or what it is to be good and instead gives a modern take on morality; Meg refuses to wear silk dresses because of child labor used in producing them, which reflects a more modern moral concern. Many moral lessons in the book were removed from the movie, such as the girls buying Christmas presents for Marmee instead of themselves, Jo’s conversation with her mother about her temper where her mother admits that she is: “ I am angry nearly every day of my life, Jo, but I have learned not to show it, and I still hope to learn not to feel it, though it may take me another forty years to do so “(Alcott chapter 8). I believe the omissions were made as they did not fit in with the new modern ideas being integrated in the movie. The movie has a modern feminist theme and it is made......

Shakespeare Play vs Movie

...was more dominant both fighters initially did not try to harm each other. Then Tybalt gets the better of him towards the end leading Mercutio to accidentally stabbing him. The play script seems a more serious battle between the two where they are actually fighting for their family is a life threatening way rather then a humorous way. I personally liked the this interpretation as it seems more likely it was an accident. The 1996 play was done in a completely different manner. I believe the director does this direction rather then the traditional way to get a different perspective of a classic by including modern adaptations of the book. For example it was set in america with fast cars and guns, while families were portraying different gangs. It gives a twist of what we see in modern day news and movies. It allows the traditions values of the movie to succeed while the attaining the attention of the youth with modern day action. A difference between the two films are the way Tibalt is killed in the 1968 version and the way he in 1996. In the 1968 version he was stabbed and killed soon after within the same scene. While in the 1996 film he is stabbed and injured but manages to escape on his own without dying for some time after. Another difference is the environment of the fight. The 1996 version is very serious and both men are truly trying to kill each other, while in the 1968 interpretation the men are fitting in a humorous way rather then serious. A similarity between the...

Ironwood Movie vs. Book

...which Francis gradually comes to terms with the past he fled so long ago. The Ironweed story has been adapted to novel and movie formats, which will be compared below. I much preferred the movie version to the novel. For me, author William Kennedy’s style of writing is needlessly vague and difficult to follow, yet he did a wonderful job adapting the screenplay for the movie. Several aspects of the story I did not fully understand until I watched the movie. Kennedy also lifted Helen Archer, Francis’ girlfriend, into a main character role for the movie. I was very glad to see her presence expanded in to movie as her role in the novel is rather small for such a fascinating character. In the second chapter of the novel, Francis, Helen and friend Rudy Newton go to The Gilded Cage saloon for drinks, where it is revealed that Helen is a former songstress. Barman Oscar Reo, a former singer and radio star himself, convinces Helen to sing for the crowd. Helen hesitates at first, but finally relents and performs what seems to be a wonderful rendition of ‘My Man’, followed by ‘He’s Me Pal’. According to the novel, Helen’s rendition of these songs earns her thunderous applause, and the crowd gives her a standing ovation. Reading that part of the book, I believe Helen gives a fantastic performance. Its was not until I see that same performance in the movie that I realize Helen has imagined that response, and the crowds true reaction can be called lackluster at best. Also......

Outsiders, Compare Book and Movie

...Sixteen years after a sixteen-year-old wrote this book, Francis Ford Coppola turned this novel into a movie. The book is a coming-of-age novel, but the movie focuses on the characters' loss of innocence. The movie follows the story line very closely. The reader is only told that this story takes place in the southwest, but the movie places it in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the year 1966. It also changes the conflict from the East Side versus the West side to the northside versus the southside. This minor directional change was probably made due to the relative time proximity to the musical West Side Story, which won the best picture Academy Award in l961. However, as with all movies, character insight that is critical to understanding the story is lost when the format goes from the written word to the screen. Ponyboy is telling us the story, the same as in the book, but the 91-minute film only glosses over many character relationships. <a href=";navArea=CLIFFSNOTES2_LITERATURE;type=Lit_Note;kword=SE_Hinton;kword=The_Outsiders;contentItemId=139;tile=3;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?" target="_blank"><img src=";navArea=CLIFFSNOTES2_LITERATURE;type=Lit_Note;kword=SE_Hinton;kword=The_Outsiders;contentItemId=139;tile=3;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?" width="300" height="250" border="0" alt="" /></a> With the exception of Ponyboy, the viewer misses out on knowing most of the novel's characters.
