Directing a movie based off of a child’s comic book for adult audiences would be a very difficult task and Burton chooses to tackle this challenge by making the hero a shadowy figure instead of the fake, childhood superhuman. Given the numerous positive and groundbreaking aspects of Batman, audiences generally agree on the movie’s success, regarding his work as “probably the best film of the year” (Rickey).

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. If I were that much of a reader, I would have read it a fourth time. The movie for divergent recently came out, about two weeks ago, it was not all that bad, considering that they might, just might, have had a time limit allotted for the movie. However, it left out a very large key-factor that may mess up the movies to come for the series.

What can explain the fact that millions of Americans--grown-up Americans--have flocked to see a movie version of what its own author called a fairy tale? The Return of the King remains at the top spot in box office sales, and this third and final entry in The Lord of the Rings trilogy deserves top billing. Behind the movie's success stands the enduring popularity of author J. R. R. Tolkien and his fantasy world of Middle-earth. Those who consider themselves too sophisticated for these fairy tales reveal a tragic lack of moral imagination--and Christian imagination. J. R. R. Tolkien [1892-1973] was one of the twentieth century's greatest scholars of language and the culture of pre-Christian England.
In recent decades, many have argued that the line between realism and fiction in cinematic endeavours has become increasingly blurred. It has not been until recently that the world has truly been exposed to this completely innovative cinematic style, which has captivated audiences with its new approach to filmmaking. This new cinematic style was first introduced in Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s The Blair Witch Project. Here I will focus on breaking down the various levels of realism within The Blair Witch Project, in order to convey why it had such a monumental impact on the cinematic world, while still remaining a popular and modern horror film to today’s audiences. In order to achieve this I will pay particular attention to the style of filming, the clever marketing campaign and the combination of fact and fiction, which helped captivate even the most, experienced of cinemagoers.
I feel very compelled to read more books of his time. This book was very opinionated in its meaning because of its creativity and ambiguity. In conclusion, this book is one of the best ever written. It has withstood the test of time and false interpretation. Among children this book is known but falsely known due to the interpretations of the Disney movie and children’s tale.
Salam Rushdie, author of Haroun and the Sea of Stories, once claimed that seeing the classic movie The Wizard of Oz “made a writer of [him] (London: Palgrave-Macmillian, 1992).” He continued on to explain how the movie later influenced the novel, because it provided the “right voice” as he attempted to create a story that could transcend the boundary that typically “ghettoizes children’s books from adult literature” (London: Palgrave-Macmillian, 1992). While adult readers did tend to shun and avoid children’s literature, movie adaptations of children’s books (such as The Wizard of Oz) were able to attract audiences of all ages. As Rushdie himself states, the movie’s influence on the text is not subtle on any level. In both cases, a pre-adolescent
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.

Series of the books were proven to be successful when turned into movies. Harry Potter movies develop the genre of modern fairy tale combined with teen drama.

Originally, the gothic genre is a blend of the sublime and the romantic where most classical novels like Wuthering Heights or Picture of Dorian Grey etc. have become household names. However, such popular texts like Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, and Castle of Otranto etc. Are either religiously taught in schools, whether GCSE level or Alevel, which aspire to some students the complex and fascinating gothic genre, or for some others the gothic genre is always a fascination for avid fans.
