“But I was still lying and I knew It ,I lie to myself all the time but I never Believe me” Ponyboy had said when he said he didn’t like darry. This is important because it is acknowledging the fact we lie to ourselves all the time but the real question is do we believe it? Between the movie and the novel The Outsiders By S.E Hinton there is many similarities and differences and there is two recurring themes.
There are many similarities in the book and the movie. One of the Similarities is the allusion “nothing gold can stay” This is significant because this is a poem that ponyboy remembered when he was in the church that was fitting at the time. This poem is saying stay young stay innocent don’t grow up too fast like some of them have had to do. Another allusion that is similar is Gone with the wind. This appeared when Johnny bought a whole bunch of food and things for them when they were in the church. Johnny really wanted to read the book and it meant a lot to him. When he was in the hospital he asked for a copy of the book. The last similarity in the two is that ponyboy is the narrator. It is first person limited and we only get to see how Ponyboy sees the whole situation. We don’t get to see it through any other perspective Both of the book and the movie are set up like this.
Along with the similarities there are many differences in The Outsiders. In the beginning of the movie it started with a fight between some of the socs or greasers. In the book it
Johnny , Ponyboy and Dallas also possessed specific interpersonal skills like openness and empathy which can be clearly seen in the scenes where they rescue the kids from the burning church without thinking about the consequences. They valued others life more than theirs that they were ready to sacrifice their own lives for saving the children. Their selfless sacrifice is evident in the scene, where while turning the pages of Johnny's copy of ‘Gone with the Wind’, Ponyboy finds a letter from Johnny saying that saving the children was worth sacrificing his own life. To conclude, the story of ‘The Outsiders’ is inspiring and it contains violence and strong language. I think its themes and conflicts are highly valuable as they still address many of the issues in the modern world. This film’s realistic portrayal has created a new kind of filmmaking which portrays poor teenagers from the wrong side of the tracks .I feel it is an easier way to lead the new generation in the right track through this effective form of communication. The movie also uses various elements and principles of interpersonal communication in many scenes. It would be a good action movie for the young generation to watch as they are mainly related to the realities rather than fantasy that
A few similarities between the movie and book are that the movie still has the complete Greaser gang Pony, Johnny, Soda, Darry, Dally, Two-Bit and Steve. They still have some of the more sad part like when Johnny and Dally die. There is still lots of conflict between the Greasers and the Soc’s. There is still the situation where Johnny
On April 24, 1967, S.E. Hinton published the book The Outsiders. Then sixteen years later director Francis Ford Coppola’s movie version of The Outsiders was released on March 23, 1983. The book is about a young boy named Ponyboy who lives with his two older brothers because his parents were killed in a automobile accident. Ponyboy goes through a lot of tough times because he is a part of this group known as the Greasers. The Greasers are a group that are known for being from the poor side of town and the Socs are the rich kids on the other side of town. Throughout the entire book the two groups kept fighting and then something terrible happened that changed Ponyboy’s life forever. The movie and book have many differences
The novel has more detail than the movie because in the novel it showed more of the characters backstories it doesnt talk about Ponyboy’s school or about Dally’s past life was like before he moved and how Johnny got beat up by the Soc while the movie skipped all of that. Another is that in the novel you can hear the character’s thoughts you could hear what Ponyboy was thinking throughout the whole story and because the novel was in first person and the movie was in third person so you couldn't really hear what the character was thinking in the movie.
In english are class read a book called The Outsiders, then we watched the movie and did wrote about what was different, these are a couple of the differences i found out. Darry Ponyboy's brother in the book and movie seems a whole lot meaner to Pony in the book. Early in the book Ponyboy gives descriptions about all of his friends and his two brothers, but in the movie their hairstyles are different. In the book and movie Ponyboy and his two friend Two Bit and Johnny go to a movie and in the book they were in an inside theater but the movie shows they were outside. Ponyboy had also said in the book there was no one there besides them and two other girls but there were a couple others there too. Johnny Ponyboy's friend is shorter than him in the movie but in the book Pony said he was the shortest.
To begin, the first difference I observed between the book and movie is that the movie has a different opening scene than the book. The movie starts out with Ponyboy writing in a composition notebook on a page titled “The Outsiders.” In the book the beginning scene is Pony boy walking
The book and the film were both simular, and yet different in many ways. An example would be, in the film, Ponyboy was walking to the drive-in and meeting Cherri and Marcia. Although in the book, Ponyboy began his journey by telling the readers about his experience about being jumped by the Socs and being threatened. The director probably had some options to pick from to leave out from the movie, and the director chosed this to leave out. Leaving out the part where Ponyboy was jumped was an effective move because without the experience Ponyboy was lost and helpless because he did not know what to do when he and Johnny got cornered in the park by Bob and other Socs.
The Greasers and the Socs' Are two rival gangs who try to claim there place in a small town. Throughout the book and movie an interesting twist occurs, Ponyboy runs away and meets with Johnny Cade, they walk throughout a vacant lot and didn't expect to see the Socs' and their blue Mustang . This is when the interesting twist occurs one of the greasers called Bob had tried to drown Ponyboy and Johnny having no choice, killed him with a switch blade. The movie had quite a turn as it included different details.
The Outsiders, made in 1983, is based on the original book made in 1967, The Outsiders. The movie copied the same plot of the book heavily, as it still portrays the same main character, Ponyboy Curtis (played by Thomas C. Howell), a fourteen year old boy living with his two brothers. This one and a half hour film shows Ponyboy’s life as a greaser, as he experiences the positive and negative sides of his family life style, and questions the benefits of the greaser’s biggest enemy; the Socials.
The novel and the movie share many similarities.The book and the novel share the same problems. A example johnny and pony run away since johnny killed bob.In both johnny gets injured badly and dies.
II. Similarities (stick with at least four)- In the movie and book Ponyboy gets along with his brother sodapop very well they stick up with each other. The movie and the book are both named the outsiders. In both movie and novel the Greasers and socs have a fight the Greasers won the fight. Also when ponyboy and johnny got jumped by A soc ANd they killed him after they ran off into
The book is better because it gives more excitement and emotion. The book just explains each of the events in great detail. I don’t know about other people, but for me the more information there is, the more I understand it. And in the movie of “The Outsiders”, it does not really say much about what’s going on. For instance, when Johnny dies, in the movie, Ponyboy goes home but it does not tell how long he had been out. In the book, Pony is walking home from the hospital and a man asked him if he wanted a ride (Hinton 151). Though others might think that the movie is better because it visualizes the events that are happening. But, even though it envisions what the book tells about does not mean that it is one hundred percent better.
In the book “The Outsiders” there is more detail and the plot seems to go at a slower pace than the movie. The greasers are from the west side of town while
The book is different from the movie because the book overall as more parts and better descriptions. In the beginning of the book it shows Pony coming out of the movie house and walking on the sidewalk as he gets jumped(Hinton). Also in the book when Pony and Johnny were searching for the church Pony talks to the farmer about where Jay Mountain is and lies to the farmer saying the church was the “army headquarters”(Hinton). In the book when Johnny is in the hospital it says that he is on his back. The last thing different in the book is in the end where Pony’s school teacher tells him to write a paper, and the movie ends with him writing the story.
According to the book, Pony wrote the book “the Outsiders” for his English project. The movie also has some events that the book doesn’t have just like the book has events that the movie doesn’t have.
