Monkeys Paw

It seems that the movie cut and add new scenes. The movie starts in a gothic, dark, creep place. The movie compared to the short story of the Monkey's Paw has many differences. The scenes, characters the humor and dialogue all altered. The director improved the story of the Monkey's Paw in the movie by adding more scenes and the characters had more personality. The music played in the movie added more suspense too. Specific scenes where different moods were set, created that suspense. The humor used with Herbert was not used in the short story. Herbert picked at Mr.White about the monkey paw being a myth and not being real. The irony showed in that is after Herbert picked fun at his father. After Herbert made a remark then left for work that very morning after the White's wished for five hundred pounds. Herbert got in a horrific accident that day at work. The accident kills him. Later that day a mysterious man arrives at the Whites with the news of their sons death and a letter payment for them from the factory. The payment was five hundred pounds. This bringing the story to its climax after the first wish being made. The characters in the movie were all the same except a couple were changed in the movie. Sargent Major in the short story came to the Whites to visit because it had been twenty years since he had visited. He was a heavy drinker, had even three whiskeys just before telling his story about the "monkeys paw" he had brought to show Mr.White. What changed in the movie was Sargent Major was the Sea Captin. The Sea Captain didn't change much about him from the short story but he wasn't much of a drinker. He had also visited the Whites a lot more and came with gifts every…...

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......

Novel to Movie Comparisons

...After reading A Walk to Remember and then watching the movie you realize how completely different they are. Some of the times that I teared up or cried in the book are different that the movie. I think that after you watch the movie it gives you a better appreciation of the book because it is more touching than the movie. The main point where I felt that the book was more touching was when Jamie gives Landon her mother's bible. She carried it where ever she went and it was all she had from her mother. It meant so much to her and she gave it to Landon. I think that when she gave Landon her bible because she wanted to give away what she had to someone who needed it before she died and she knew that she loved Landon and she wanted him to remember her. I found the movie less touching because it was only a quote book and not a bible. Instead Jamie is in the hospital when she gives him the quote book. I didn't feel that it was as touching that she gave the quote book instead. Another reason that it wasn't as meaningful to me was because in the book when she gives Landon her bible it's the moment that he realizes that he loves her. At the beginning of the book Landon tells that this story is him remembering when he was seventeen. Then at the end of the book it says that he is fifty-seven and he has still worn his wedding ring all these years even though she's gone. In times like today I doubt that anything like that would ever happen but if it were to happen back then it is......

Comparison Presentation on: "A Midsummer Nights Dream" and the Movie "Enchanted"

...SHAKESPEARE COMPARISON PRESENTATION PLAY SYNOPSIS A Midsummer Night's Dream" deals with the universal theme of love and its complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, marriage. The plot focuses on three parallel stories: * The trials and experiences of two sets of lovers camping in a magical forest * The world of the Fairy King and Queen and their elves * And a group of amateur actors attempting to stage a production of "Pyramus and Thisby" for the wedding of the Duke of Athens. Hermia is in love with Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius (who is loved by Helena). Hermia has to choose between marrying Demetrius, death or becoming a nun. To escape the arranged marriage, she and Lysander elope into the woods followed by Demetrius and Helena. While there we have the two male characters in love with Hermia, while Helena is trying to win the heart of Demetrius back. With this going on in the ‘main plot’ we are re-introduced to the fairies who try to ‘help’ the situation by using a love potion. The whole thing goes completely wrong which adds to the comedic elements of this play and ends up with Lysander and Demetrius now loving Helena and they find themselves in the same situation that they were already in before. "The course of true love never did run smooth" comments Lysander, uttering one of A Midsummer Night’s Dream’s most important themes. The theme of love’s difficulty, which is explored through the motif of love out of balance. The...

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......

The Monkey's Paw

...The Monkey’s Paw –Story Analysis Imagination can take over and lead the mind on a journey to new beginnings. The author leaves the reader to discover underlying meanings while grasping the concept between reality and make-believe. Reading an interesting novel will give the readers a burst of different emotions, for example horror stories and thrillers leave the reader excited and eager for more, while romance makes them wish for the little things they do not have. While searching for the underlying intent, it is inevitable to come across many acts of representation, including the oblivious ones. At the end of a novel the reader gains knowledge and understanding of the author’s implications. As the story opens, the scene inside Laburnam Villa is contrasted with the scene outside. Outside, it's a typical dark and stormy night. Inside things are warm and cheery, with chess, knitting, and a roaring fire. People can always have a cheerful day no matter what the weather is like outside. As the story progresses, the house becomes progressively darker and spookier – complete with creaking stairs, strange shadows from candles and things that go bump in the night. After Herbert dies, the reader is told that the house becomes, "steeped in shadow and silence" (3.3). Mr. and Mrs. White also undergo an upsetting change, transforming from a happy couple into parents racked by grief. It is common for happy couples to have their off days, not everyone can be happy all the time.......

Hamlet Movie Scene Comparison

...Hamlet Movie Scene Comparison Act II, scene 2 is the longest scene in Hamlet. In this scene, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern come to the King, Voltimand and Cornelius report the message from Norway, Polonius suggests to Claudius and Gertrude the reason of Hamlet’s madness, Hamlet calls Polonius a “fishmonger”, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern bring in the players, Hamlet decides to let the players play the Old King’s murder. Scene 2 is divided into sub-sections in a way to present the plot and the theme more clearly. The “fishmonger scene” refers to the part from Polonius’s explanation of Hamlet’s madness “Your noble son is mad” (2.2.92) to the end of Hamlet and Polonius’s first interaction “except my life” (2.2.210), initiates Hamlet’s actions on revenge and vouchsafes how other characters view his “madness”. This essay will compare the actors’ gestures and line arrangements from directors Kenneth Branagh and Franco Zeffirelli to depict the different effects in Hamlet’s madness. First, the actors’ gestures between Kenneth Branagh version and Mel Gibson version show differences to the interpretations of Hamlet’s madness. There are not many gestures in the Kenneth Branagh film, which can mean something. When Polonius talks to Claudius and Gertrude, also when he talks to Hamlet, he does not have obvious big body movement, but instead just standing straight, walking steadily, behaving perfectly like a honorable and educated man; Hamlet as the noble son of the King and Queen, and......

Monkeys Paw

...The Monkey’s Paw Stephen Croman Strayer University Professor Marshall ENG115 July 15th, 2016 The Monkey’s Paw “The Monkey’s Paw” by W. W. Jacobs is a short story in which the White family obtains the monkey’s paw, which is a supposed magical talisman, by a family friend in which the possessor acquires three wishes. However, with these wishes come consequences. Before obtaining the talisman their family friend, Sargent-Major Morris, told the family how he received it from the previous owner when they used their last wish for death. He also warned them of the mischief it caused by his wishes. He then threw the talisman into the fire in which Mr. White retrieved it. Against his better judgment, Sargent Morris fearfully instructed Mr. White how to make the wishes and to heed his warning about the supposed consequences. After a suggestion by his son, Mr. White wishes for money to pay off the house, the money comes from the company that his son worked for because he passed away in a horrible accident at work when he got caught in the machinery. A few days later a distraught Mrs. White wants Mr. White to wish him back to life, which he reluctantly does. Later in the night there is a knocking on the door and Mrs. White races to answer the door believing it is her son.

A Comparison of the Tale of “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp” and the Disney Movie Aladdin: a Cultural Study

...A Comparison of the tale of “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp” and the Disney Movie Aladdin: A Cultural Study According to N. J. Dawood, the translator of The Thousand and One Nights, “Aladdin has been retold or presented to so many different generations all over the world that it can perhaps be rightly described as the most renowned story invented by man”. Interestingly enough, “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp” was not part of the original collection of stories that composed The Arabian Nights. No one knows exactly when a given story is originated, but it is obvious that some stories circulated orally for centuries before they actually were collected or written down. The story of Aladdin appeared for the first time in Antoine Galland’s (1646-1715) translation of the Thousand and One Nights, the first major European version. Before Galland, there was no known Arabic version of Aladdin and his lamp. The first Arabic version showed up after Galland’s version and very well could have been translations of Galland’s French version. One of the more recent and most popular versions of “Aladdin” was an animated feature produced in 1992 by Walt Disney Pictures. Aladdin made over $217 million in revenue in the United States, and over $504 million worldwide. Even though the American film and the medieval Arabian tale share common elements and are both plotted around a young impoverished boy named Aladdin, the moral lessons they offer differ in ways that can be described through the......

Comparison of Streetcar Named Desire the Play and the Movie

... Janet Ng Professor Faunce WRT 102 7 March 2012 Textual Analysis of A Streetcar Named Desire Based on Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire, Elia Kazan creates an award winning movie that helps readers visualize Stanley’s primal masculinity, the inner torments of the Kowalski women and the clash of the other characters’ problems which create a chaotic mess. Using stage directions in the play, William hints that Blanche is not who she appears to be while the movie subtly sheds light on Blanche’s strange little habits that suggests a bigger issue. The movie also censors many of the main themes in Williams’ play but makes up for it by having its actors flawlessly portray the characters’ emotions, allowing the readers to see the conflict at its full magnitude. Both the movie and the play sympathize with the powerless women by underlining the important theme of women’s dependence on men. Blanche is an insecure, miserable older woman who masks herself as a rich, upper class lady. She continues to shy from reality and seduce men as she cannot comprehend that her reliance on men will ultimately lead to her downfall. “Now run along, now, quickly! It would be nice to keep you, but I’ve got to be good-and keep my hands off children.” (Williams, pg 99) This isn’t the first time that Blanche has put moves on a kid as made evident when she states “I’ve got to be good and keep my hands off children.” She clearly hasn’t learned her lesson after losing her job. The scene is even......
