I have watched the movie and read the book too. I have found there are many things in the movie that was similar to the book, however there are many important scenes that is not included in the movie. I strongly believed that the movie could have been better if they have looked at the small important aspects of the books. There are many similarities and differences between movie and the book. There are many similarities between book and the movie.
The reader expects to feel the same way he or she did when reading the literature. It is challenging to limit revision due to the nature of film and literature being two very different ways to portray stories. It is similar to comparing an oil painting to a statue. There is also too much content in a novel to have it all put into a movie, sections of it have to be cut out (Boggs). As expected, a higher dedicated audience to a work of literature will be critical towards any given movie.
Maria Arellano Period 4 Pride and Prejudice: Differences Between the Movie & the Book When filming a novel, especially one as well-known as Pride and Prejudice, differences can be observed between every adaptation that is made. These differences mainly arise from different opinions concerning the actual conceptual message of the book and therefore lead to rather different intentions of what an adaptation should be about. Hence the fact that no matter which book is turned into a movie, there are going to be different things between the two. Although there were some differences between the novel and the movie, to an extent the movie is still able to depict what Austen wanted her readers to take from the book even though there were some major changes. They say that the “first-impression” you leave on someone, will create a lasting impression, which will lead to the creation of their opinion on you.
The Webster's New World College dictionary (2005) defines novels as relatively long fictional prose narrative and films as a sequence of photographs projected on a screen in such a rapid succession that they create an optical illusion of movement (p.529 & p.988) . These two genres have been the main topic of an age old debate. The debate revolves around the question, which are better novels or films. People tend to have different opinions on whether books or movies tell a better story.The debate continues to grow due to Hollywood making more and more movies based on books. To illustrate my views on this debate, I will be comparing and contrasting the novel and film versions of William Golding's The Lord of the Flies and Toni Morrison's Beloved.
The book also has more suspense while the movie moves too fast and cuts out scenes. The movie moving too fast causes it to be very predictable. Three major differences that stood out include missing characters and characters perceived differently, essential scenes left out and the way the book shows individual people while the movie shows the relationships in action. The book versus the movie shows clear differences but the morals are all still the same. ... ... middle of paper ... ... To say both the book and the movie of To Kill a Mockingbird were closely related would be an understatement.
The movie leaves out key details that are included in the actual book. From personal experience, reading a book will give an individual more details about the overall story. When authors write books, they include minor and major details that draw the reader in. Once the reader is hooked, the author is then able to provide the reader with the overall theme of the book. However, movie producers focus less on minor details that readers find important and lock in on major details that they can make more entertaining or action-packed.
In the film, the director also left out such scenes and details to jump around between major action scenes. Philip Nel stated in “Bewitched, bothered, and bored: Harry Potter, the Movie” that, “The accumulation of minor details can create a markedly different experience between a book and a film, which may explain why my students who read the novel first seemed to be so critical of the film. The movie looks like the places in the book but it doesn 't "feel" like them because these little details accumulate (Nel)”. It is these missing little details that catch us off guard when watch a film based off a book; we expect those little details to be in the movie. Another example would be that the friendship between Harry, Ron, and Hermione did not seem as fluid as it was in the books.
The Big Sleep: Movie vs. Novel 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.
Although the novel The Secret in Their Eyes and the film of the same name have stylistic changes and changes in how events happen with the addition of a scene or two, the stories stay true to each other, to a point. The changes include making Irene more involved within the story and changing Chaparro’s character less outwardly faint-hearted, and most of the changes relate to different characters. All the changes and differences between the two serve a purpose within the narrative, usually to make scenes more dramatic for the viewer or to fit scenes within a certain time frame. When we are comparing the novel and its film adaptation, we are addressing whether “an adaptation arrives first at a comparison between a novel and film, and second at
Generally, movie adaptations of books are not exact replicas of the original. The reason is mainly that the original storyline needs to be modified in order to quench the audience's thirst for action, whereas those who read books usually enjoy the slow, steady build-up of a valuable plot which will never be replaced by movies. Moreover, books allow the reader’s imagination to roam free, but movies can offer a new and different perspective. The fictional novel The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White and its animated counterpart, also named The Sword in the Stone, by Disney are no exception.
