What would you choose? Would you stay or go? Well, that's what Mia is facing. Mia is a 17 year old cello player who had an audition to Juilliard, a rock star boyfriend, a future ahead of her. That was until she was in a car accident. Now she has lost her mom, dad, and brother. She doesn't know whether to stay or go at this point. The main character's in the book is Mia, Adam(Mia's boyfriend), Kim(Mia's best friend), Mia’s mom, dad, brother Teddy, and her gramps. Although there are major differences between the book and the movie, each equally enjoyable. For various reasons I like the book and the movie equally because it shows the relationships with the characters differently.
The Lorax was originally published in 1971 by Dr Seuss, It became a classic children’s book. The book was made into a children’s movie in 2012. The Lorax film was directed and made by Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda. The book doesn’t really go into a lot of detail. The classic children's book was about a forest creature known as the Lorax. The Lorax speaks for all the trees that in the forest, he doesn’t show up until Once ler an entrepreneur begins to cut down the Truffula trees to a garment called thneed. Once ler felt like the thneed would have multi purposes. The Once ler tells a boy that started with no name in the book later when movie was created who was known as Ted the story about the reason why the lorax which also known as the forest creature why there wasn’t no more trees.
In Class we watched two movies based on a book we read called Of Mice and Men. Both of the movies were very similar to the book. In I was able to hear exact lines from the book in the two movies.
In the book, Hans slapped Liesel and soon apologized to her but in the movie he just yelled at her. Another difference is at the book burning ceremony, Liesel told her father that she hated Hitler. In the movie, it looks like the Hubermanns doesn’t have two children like was said in the book. Third difference is when Viktor Chemmel throws Liesel’s book in the river, the novel said it was called The Whistler but the movie showed the hand painted Mein Kampf. One of the last differences is at the end when Liesel finds Rudy, he is already dead in the novel but in the movie, Rudy is still alive and says “I I-“before dying. There are quite some differences in the movie compared to the novel but however maintain the major similarities. For instance, the father, Hans, was the one who taught Liesel how to read and created a wall covered in word that Liesel learned from reading books. The second similarity is the scene where Rudy painted himself black pretending to be Jesse Owens. The third similarity is Hans coming back from the war, he was injured. Another similarity is the mayor and his wife took Liesel in after the bombing at Himmel Street. Thus, following the books main point with a few major
The final major difference between the movie and the book is Lennie’s personal sanity. In the book, the reader is given multiple instances clearly showing that Lennie is not totally there so to speak. The best example possible is when Lennie hallucinates about Aunt Clara and the giant rabbit. This scene is removed in the film and instead Lennie seems to just be a very confused person with a low thinking capacity. The film seems to try and have Lennie appear
Both the movie and the book, Hidden Figures, were an astonishing read and watch. One reason I admire the book and movie it is very empowering in the sense that even people who were discriminated against can have amazing accomplishments. Another reason I appreciate the book and the movie was there was never a part in the book or movie were it was tedious. Both were filled with trauma yet the facts were true. The last reason why I fancy the book and the movie is I can relate to some things that happen to them in a general matter. Some struggles such as people underestimating them has happened to me, too. Everything considered I would like to say that I recommend for you to read and watch the movie and book.
Demi Moore's portrayal of Hester in the movie The Scarlet Letter proved her worth as a feminist actress, which led her to other, more modern female empowerment roles ranging from Striptease to GI Jane. But in the moviemakers 'attempt to give the story what they might think is a little modern flavor, they barbarously misconstrued the theme, and thus the importance, of a timeless story. In the novel, there can be little doubt that Hester is a strong person, but the movie made her out to be a martyr for women's rights. The female empowerment theme of the movie also inevitably led to the characterization of Christians and their ethics as tyrannical and oppressive because the feminist
If lying was a job for Norma Khouri, she truly would have been a billionaire by the end of Anna Broinowski's enthralling documentary, "Forbidden Lie$". Documentaries and films are seen as a reliable medium for providing facts and information yet even after having seen this riveting documentary, you'll find yourself questioning the integrity of the entire documentary. With Broinowski gaining a great sense of authority over this text right from the start, she paves the stones in leading the viewer to eventually gain a greater sense of authority over the film's meaning. Anna Broinowski attempts to pull Norma Khouri apart at the seams in Forbidden Lie$, to finally unravel the ball of lies crafted by the pathological liar herself. This elaborate documentary follows the story of the infamous Norma Khouri from all possible angles, while subsequently proving the words of Christopher Nolan. That "the 'truth' is indeed stranger than fiction."
When filmmakers of the 21st century write movie about a book almost every time they are different than the original book. Sometimes they change the book to make it more interesting, modern, or to save money and time. For example they sexualized grendels mothers to make it more interesting and modern. Filmmakers changed the original story when they wrote Beowulf the movie to modernize it, make it interesting to catch the watchers, and to save time and money.
The Watsons are heading to Birmingham with their family including Daniel their father, Wilona their mother, Byron the older brother, Kenny the middle child, and Joetta the only sister.
Between the short story “Harrison Bergeron” and the film 2081 I preferred the story “Harrison Bergeron”. I favored the short story over the movie because the author left out small details about the world in which the story took place in, so as a reader you were able to fill in these details and almost create part of the story yourself. The movie already filled in these details, which for me took out the uniqueness in the story. I also liked the short story better because when reading you could reflect on the plot and predict what was going to happen further on in the story. The movie never allowed you to do this because it was constantly moving on to a different topic or idea.
“Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.” This is my favorite quote from the popular book written by Galye Foreman in 2009, and then later created into a movie in 2014 called if I stay. The story about Mia, the 17 year old high school student who plays the cello and is totally obsessed with classical music. After a tragic car accident, she gets the rare opportunity to reflect on her entire life. Mia begins to have an out-of-body experience where she becomes separated from her body and is conscious to hear and see everything going on around her. As each event unfolds, Mia reflects on the past’s years with her family. Eventually, Mia’s projected body grows weary and she knows it’s time to make a decision. Return to her body and fight, or let herself slip away
Lastly, the story in the movie was fairly similar to the book, by the events that they both share. The difference between the two is that the movie shows a more distinct depiction of the emotions and mood going on, while the book does not show that. The list of events that took place in the book and movie were the same though, starting off with Lennie drinking pond water, and ending with Lennie being shot and killed.
In the early 1900’s silent films amazed audiences with images, later talkies impressed with sound, today we have 3D. As technology continues to evolve so too will film genres. Genres, while having some shared characteristics, also differ in terms of stylistic devices used. For instance, the dramatic film “The Notebook” effectively uses color to reinforce theme and has plausible performers as the two main protagonists.
Throughout the movie, The Notebook, there were many different aspects that corresponded with the material learned throughout the semester. There were times were you were able to pin point why each problem was faced based on different character backgrounds. As began to watch the movie, you start to understand the culture aspects of each individual by the way they talk and present themselves, which caused many situations to arise. Also, these many situations arise throughout the movie that affected the outcome of decisions made: biological, psychological, and social/environment. However, diversity played a magnificent role from the beginning to the end. So, therefore, throughout this paper you will have a better understanding of the analysis of this film, which should provide information about the movie.
