As the years go on the movie industry are starting to look back on the movies that we all know in love and try to recreate them to get that feeling of enjoyment once more. What’s hard about recreating a movie from the original from is that it could alway be a bit dodgy. Take Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for example. Tim Burton directed the 2005 film and took the warm-hearted and wholesome film filled with awe and wonder and turned it into a something like that and more. Knowing Tim Burton’s work, his style is a bit unique; some would say weird. But that’s what people like about his movies; they love that they’re weird and different than anything else that they’ve ever seen. Even I love that about his work. Watching the original film titled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and looking back to what the movie represented to all of us as children ,I feel that both movies have their own qualities that make them individually good . As a child, everyone would have dreamed of going to a chocolate factory just like Willy Wonka’s. Children want be amazed by what the factory has in store for them and and downright just have a good time. Both films represent that feel to that the main character, Charlie Bucket, exceeded his expectations to what he envisioned the factory contained inside. And yes, they both had the same theme and setting. However, Tim Burton did create more development for the characters in the newer version, but to me I felt that it wasn’t necessary. The

I thought that the movie “A Christmas Carol” was better than the book. Movies provide better action and visual pictures. When watching a DVD you can actually see what is happening in the story and plot. When you read a book you have to use your imagination and visualize what's happening in your head. Although some movies can change the plot and sequencing of the original book, it is still fun to watch the movie and see how different or similar they are.

Indisputably, Tim Burton has one of the world’s most distinct styles when regarding film directing. His tone, mood, diction, imagery, organization, syntax, and point of view within his films sets him apart from other renowned directors. Burton’s style can be easily depicted in two of his most highly esteemed and critically acclaimed films, Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Burton ingeniously incorporates effective cinematic techniques to convey a poignant underlying message to the audience. Such cinematic techniques are in the lighting and editing technique categories. High key and low key relationships plus editing variations evinces the director’s elaborate style. He utilizes these cinematic techniques to
Tim Burton is one of the most unusual and unique directors of our time. He brings characters to life by putting them in a habitat they don’t belong. His movies “Alice in Wonderland”, “The Corpse Bride”, “Charlie and the chocolate factory”, and “Edward Scissorhands” all demonstrate how one of a kind his movies are. Using cinematic techniques, Tim Burton points out the misfit character and shows how different they are then everyone else. His use of camera angles, lighting, and sound give the viewers a different perspective on the movies, and help pick out the individual character.
In the films of Tim Burton, the antagonists are always troublesome, self-absorbed, and ill-mannered, while the protagonists are always the outsiders. Burton, director of many movies such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands, Frankenweenie and much more, makes the protagonists outcasts because “‘It’s important to feel like you live or understand the character.’ [...] Like young Victor, Burton grew up feeling isolated in the suburbs, with emotionally-distant parents and a beloved dog, bullied in school and probably a bit depressed…”(Hollywood Reporter). The great contrast between the protagonists and the antagonists convey the tone for how he perceives the world and the people in it. In the films Edward Scissorhands and
The plot had some major differences as well as its similarities, for example, when Lydia was frightened by the lions and when Peter and Wendy "killed" their parents. The film did follow the same storyline and had the same plot but also had some slight differences here and there, for example ... In the story, George and Lydia found a wallet and a scarf in the nursery, but they found a purse in the movie. The children didn't land in the "space ship" and they didn't even mention the plastic carnival. There were no whining or jumping on couch's as referenced in the story when the kids heard the news about locking up the nursery, they just got mad and ran towards the nursery. When the Parents were supposedly chased by lions, Lydia wasn't crying, the story made it seem more dramatic than it appeared in the video. As well as Peter called George “George” in the movie instead of Father or Dad, this was not mentioned in the story, but it did show how he didn’t really think of George as his Dad. There were also a little foreshadowing at the end when George told Lydia to RIP “Rest in peace” then shortly after they
First off, the biggest difference is the time periods of each movie. The older movie was set in Early Renaissance times. The newer movie is set in the early ninety’s. Another difference is the use of special effects. In the
The book Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, and the movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory are same and different. Unlike the book, the movie had Willy Wonka wearing a brown top hat. Similar to the book in the movie Willy Wonka wore a purple coat. In the book Charlie was in elementary school similar to the movie. Also, in the movie he goes into the candy shop and in the book he doesn’t. Since the family didn’t have very much money do they only had one bed. Also, in the book the dad was alive and he wasn’t in the movie.
Looking at the surface of the films The Fox and the Hound and Monsters Inc, we probably would not see any similarities whatsoever. This is hardly the case once looking past the animated animals and monsters. The Fox and the Hound, which was released in 1981 by Disney, portrays a fox named Tod and a hound dog named Copper. Even though they grew up together, they are socially supposed to be enemies. They do overcome this stereotype at first as they become best friends and vow to forever. In the end of the film they stay friends, but end up living separate from each other. Each one living in the world that is socially acceptable to each animal. Similarity, Monster Inc., which was released in 2001 by Disney and
Christmas is recognized by the general public as a time to celebrate family and give gifts. Which it is, but gifts can go way deeper than physical objects. This is exhibited in a book, The Greatest Gift, and a movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. In 1943, Philip Van Doren Stern wrote the Greatest Gift. It tells the tale of George, a person who is about to kill himself but is then shown what the world would be like without him and realizes he shouldn’t kill himself. Unable to find a publisher for it, Philip put the story on his Christmas cards and mailed them to friends. A couple of his publisher friends thoroughly enjoyed it and made the move to publish it in a newspaper. This caught the attention of film director Frank Capra. He decided to fill in
The movies that I am comparing are “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was a 1971 film directed by Mel Stuart, and starred Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a 2005 musical fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka. Both Movies are an adaptation of the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. In both movies, a young boy named Charlie Bucket wins a tour through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world, led by the world's most unusual candy maker, Willy Wonka.

It all takes place in Verona, a township in New Jersey. The movie starts with an Ariel view of the city shifting from site to site showing off of the pleasant areas.

The jets are informed by the police that if they cant get along with the other boys, they will all be taken to jail. Obviously none of them want to go to jail so they come up with an idea for a settlement, a sort of agreement with the other gang. This agreement is a “Brawl” a fair even fist fight between the toughest guys of the two gangs, whoevers gang loses the fight has to leave the area. Tony aka Richard Beymer and Maria aka Natalie Wood are in an unbreakable relationship
Tim Burton once said, “My parents suffered from that ideal of a perfect nuclear family. They found that a difficult pressure, I think”. Tim Burton is a famous filmmaker who sometimes incorporates his life into his films. Tim was an odd child in that he liked being alone and spending his time in a graveyard. In his childhood, he was the outsider in a “perfect” world. People can judge him on his odd and different childhood. That is what he tries to teach in his films. In both Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands, Burton reveals that society wrongly judges those who do not fit in.
It is common in today's media-driven society to reach into the past for inspiration and ideas. A trend has developed where original works are transformed into other mediums. For example: books are turned into movies and/or plays, movies are turned into weekly sitcoms, and cartoons will spawn empires (Disney). These things happen so often that an audience rarely stops to question the level of authenticity that remains after these conversions. Perhaps it is only when a project is not well received that people begin to think of the difficulties involved with changing a work's genre. Using Gulliver's Travels as an example, discrepancies and additions in the movie can be
