For instance, Flora made the book feel sweet and nice as you read it but in the movie Crow played that part in the movie. But since there wasn’t as many characters the pairs were also switched up. For me, it made things more confusing at the beginning to understand the plot but as the movie went on eventually I figured out that the characters who I know and love were not there.
Also, the novel and movie have other differences that were all very appealing. In the novel when Killer Kane kidnapped Max he brought him underneath the streetlight, while in the movie he didn’t. Also, in the novel Freak didn’t drive any vehicle, but in the movie he drove the van to rescue Max from Killer Kane. The best part of the story, though, is when they meet. In the novel they meet by living near each other since they were neighbors. In the movie they meet since Freak was Max’s tutor. Finally, the novel tells us that Freak had a seizure on his birthday, but in the movie he has it on Christmas.
For instance, in the book Joppy knew Albright; Albright knew Todd Carter; Todd Carter knew Richard McGee as well as Matthew Terrell whereas in the movie every character denied knowing each other except Albright and Joppy. Another noticeable difference is that in the book Frank Green, Daphne’s brother ends up murdered and in the movie he lives and they both end up moving. The third noticeable difference is a character name change from the book to the movie; Matthew Teran in the book is Matthew Terrell in the movie and he ends up being murdered in the book whereas at the end of the movie he’s running for mayor. A fourth noticeable difference is the pier scene. In the book Albright and Easy meet at the Santa Monica pier and in the movie it is the Malibu pier. And the last most noticeable difference between the book and the movie is that Mouse knows Daphne Monet or shall we call her by her real name Ruby Hanks; however, in the movie the audience never finds that out. In the movie the only true thing you get to know about Daphne is that she is both black and white. Therefore, due to the many differences between the book and the movie it is confusing to the audience since it is almost like dealing with two different stories because of the plot inconsistencies.
An example would be the bombing of Baba-Levy's house. In the book, the bombing occurred while Marjane was at the mall on her way to her house. The movie showed this scene close to the last section of the first half of the movie and didn't mention her at the mall. The text however, showed a clear description of her reaction to the news of the bombing and running to her house for fear of her neighbors and her family's safety. In total, the text summarized and transitioned the plot better than movie.
Both the novel and the film share indistinguishable qualities. For example,They both have the same places as the novel.There were the DX,Tasty Freeze,the lot,the church,and the characters houses.Since they had the same places the same things happened.They have the same places so,they have the same scenes.However,they seem identical, they have a lot of differences.
Freak the Mighty book or movie? I would choose the movie because I like to watch movies and I can understand things in movies more than books. I think movies are better because you don’t have to read or hold anything while listen or watching the movie. I think there is more action going on during a movie versus the book. You don’t really need to picture anything in your head during a movie because it is right there compared to a book.
“I never had a brain until Freak came along and let me borrow his for a while...,” are the perspective words of Max, one of the main characters in Freak the Mighty. Throughout the novel, Freak the Mighty, author Rodman Philbrick creates a developing friendship for the two main characters, Max and Kevin, of whether or not the two of them can work together in life. In the novel, Freak and Max become like brothers in how they act and how much time they spend together. Kenny Kane, Max’s father, shows how not to act in a family by his actions toward others. Gwen, Freak’s mother, Freak, Max, and, Grim and Gram, Max’s grandparents, show how to act in a family by how much time they spend together and how much they care for eachother. In an attempt to be kind to one another, all of the main characters realize that family is determined more by behavior than by blood.
Throughout the novel Freak the Mighty author Rodman Philbrick creates a compelling story featuring the main characters, Maxwell “Max” Kane and Kevin Dillon, better known as Freak, who go through a journey testing their friendship and loyalty to each other against the forces of evil in life. Max has not had it easy, with his mother being murdered by his father Kenny “Killer” Kane, and he has “never had a brain” (Philbrick 1). These actions and thoughts have left him with no friends and immense grief. Freak has also had a fairly lonely life, being two feet tall with extraordinary intelligence leaving him an outcast. Even into adulthood, people like to isolate others due to appearance or behavior. Loretta Lee, a woman the boys meet on a quest and also an old friend of Kenny Kane, is a perfect example, as she is judged by her looks and the way she can act. Despite their looks or behavior, all of these characters have the best intentions and enormous hearts, and are living a quality life, proving that just because someone is different, does not mean they are not of the same worth as everyone else.
The difference between the developing way of books and movies is magnificently huge because the way of emotion transmitting is different; the movie is based on vision, while the book is based on words.
For instance, the book talks about how the greasers felt and how their feelings were, then in the movie, it didnt talk about it but it showed it. The way that they showed it was not as good as it was written. When reading we don't fall in love with the characters' appearance. We fall in love with their words, their thoughts, and their hearts. We fall in love with their soul. In movies we focus more on appearance and what's going on in the background, which then gets people distracted from what the character is feeling and their thoughts. On the other hand, you can see the actions of the characters in the movie, which might help you process the way they act, however with the book the author can use what he thinks and try to give people a general idea of everything. For an example in the book it talks about how Randy
Freak the Mighty, the book, and The Mighty, the movie, have many differences and similarities. Because of these differences and similarities, I think that the book is better. Both the movie and the book heavily use King Arthur and his knights to influence Max and Freak. In the book and the movie, Freak is very interested in King Arthur and his Knights. Freak also gets Max interested in King Arthur and his knights in the movie and the book. Throughout the book and the movie, Freak and Max envision themselves as King Arthur and his knights and go on quests as King Arthur and his Knights. When Freak and Max fished the purse from the sewer gate, in the book, Tony’s gang was nowhere to be found. In the movie, however, Tony’s gang did fight Max and
Messages can be conveyed to an audience in a number of different ways, whether it is a poem, a written story, or a movie. These different methods have the ability to convey similar messages but one method in particular will tend to be more successful than the others. A common example of this is the argument concerning the comparison of a book and a movie, which is better? Popular books that have been recently made into movies are Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games and fans tend to have a strong opinion of which version they prefer. Specific people have their own reasons for choosing which they favor, but the trend seems to be that books are preferred to the respective movie due to the incorporation of detail and narration within
Behind every great movie, comes a storyline that is derived from a book however, most of the books to the movies have a great number of deviations. The screenwriters and other staff members to include the director come up with these deviations to enhance the plot in the attempt to make it a more interesting film to which in turn can make a better profit. The majority of differences that is found in films main objective is to enhance the mind. For example, when a scene has the ability to get a particular feeling out of a viewer, it is imperative to be able to understand the reasons for those feelings. The dialog and the visual effects of a scene sets a tone that differs from that of the book that it was taken from. Also, screen writers and
Film and literature are two media forms that are so closely related, that we often forget there is a distinction between them. We often just view the movie as an extension of the book because most movies are based on novels or short stories. Because we are accustomed to this sequence of production, first the novel, then the motion picture, we often find ourselves making value judgments about a movie, based upon our feelings on the novel. It is this overlapping of the creative processes that prevents us from seeing movies as distinct and separate art forms from the novels they are based on.
