People are forever comparing the stories, and the two groups of fans can be impressively passionate as they argue their cases. But which film is truly superior? The 'Harry Potter' books are credited with saving the genre and introducing it to a wider audience, with their accessible storylines and language. However, The 'The Lord of the Rings' is widely believed to be the grandfather of all modern fantasy novels, despite earlier efforts, foremost those of William Morris (of wallpaper fame) and Lord Dunsany. Before the publication of the trilogy, in the 1950s, fantasy writing rarely reached publication.
Nonetheless, it was a tremendous breakthrough for both Hitchcock and the British film industry for their first movie with sound. However, there were a few problems with this transition to sound.

Children are still learning, which naturally allows them to be more open to the idea of the supernatural. Such openness justifies their roles as heroes in magical and fantasy films, and viewers of such media. The notion that analysis kills the joy of watching a good movie is unfounded; such analysis enhances the viewer’s overall experience by providing criteria with which to judge the quality of the film.
It is clear that advanced technology is resulting in better quality games. Narrative and Audiovisual Style of LEGO Harry Potter LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Years 5-7 are spin-offs of the games of the Harry Potter series. It was developed by Traveller’s Tales, a gaming company and published by Warner Bros Pty Ltd in 2010. The narrative stories in these games also follow the plot of the original text. The game designers “did their homework by sticking with the plot line of the books and borrowing visuals from the movies.” In most of the scenes, the composition and tone are totally same as the original movies.
Though there are many differences between the book and the movie, one would think Steven Spielberg would not be able to grab audience’s attention, but with his skills, Spielberg went above and beyond all measures. Many times, novels to films end up being either a great hit or a “Well, why did I watch this?” Some authors choose not to turn their novels/novellas into movies because they are afraid of the outcomes that it may have. Turning a novel into a film can be quite the challenge, indeed. There’s the questions of the plot staying the same, will characters change, how can there be more action or suspense? What will be the ending?
The great screenwriter and director Robert Bresson is quoted as saying “Make visible what, without you, might never have been seen.” This statement is incredibly true of Danielle Harper’s screenplay ‘A Slice of Sleep’. Harper has created a world full of colour that reads to be a world of bleak darkness as it can be joyfully bright and uplifting. The word ‘journey’ is much overused, but perfectly describes the contents of Harper’s script. The following discourse will be looking at how Harper has followed screenwriting conventions, such as the ‘where’, ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ and using popular screenwriting theorist texts such as Robert McKee’s ‘Story’ (1999) and Syd Field’s ‘The Definitive Guide to Screenwriting’ (2003)as guides to analysing Harper’s script. The script is split into three parts; each part is identifiable by a number of factors, the use of the starry night’s sky, the change in room colour collections, the sleeping patterns of the characters and the change of tone in the voice-over.
Have you ever read an amazing book only to be stuck with an awful movie based off of it? Watching a movie based off of a book is amazing, that is, if you haven't read the book. Reading the book that the movie is based off of is much better than the movie itself, imagining the words into action from a book gives one much more of a thrill than in the movie. The movie itself, is quite a disappointment. The book Divergent for example, spoiler alert, the book was absolutely amazing in all ways for those who like the kind of book that gives you thrills and has a disgustingly amazing plot twist, all set in a post-apocalyptic setting.
To mention Harry Potter, and I’m sure everyone is familiar with that name. Harry Potter films are based on a series of books, and the last film in the eighth series was written by Joanne Rowling, who writes under the pen names J.K. Rowling. Movies are seem to more popular than book series. The reason is that some people think the books are too long and boring. Since the release of the first Harry Potter film in 2001, more people have known Harry Potter.
