I read the book The Outsiders and watched the movie the West Side Story, they had many similarities but they also had their differences. I enjoyed both the book and the movie they were very well written. I will tell compare and contrast the book and the movie.
Both of these books are centered around three young boys going through many trials and tribulations throughout their young adult life. All six of these boys have lost their parents in tragic accidents; that ended up changing the way these boys grew up and the path that they later chose. The book The Outsiders is surrounding three boys by the names of Ponyboy, Sodapop, and Darry. Darry who is the oldest of the three boys begins to take on responsibility of taking care of his three younger brothers. These boys all end up taking a bad path in life, which resulted in joining a gain and the gain, became their family, somewhat of a filler for what they have lost in their real families home.
Movies and books can be very different in many ways. The Outsiders was written in 1967 by S.E. Hinton and was later made into a movie in 1983. The movie version of the book had to cut out scenes and change things that ended up creating several differences between the two. The main focus will be the plot of the Outsiders in the book versus in the movie. There are many differences between the book and the movie.
The Outsiders movie and book are different yet similar in many ways. It is mostly similar by the characters, setting and story. It is different by character’s looks and some parts were cut out of the movie that were in the book, but both are equally
I strongly think that the book “The Outsiders” written by S.C. Hinton, is better than the movie. When you start the movie there is no explanation to what is going on or who anyone is. In the movie if you didn't read the book you wouldn't know that there is the big conflict between the greasers or Socs. I think the book explains and introduces each character very well. In the movie they left out huge details on the story background and important parts in the movie, like when Randy tells Ponyboy about how Bob acts naughty and gets into trouble because nobody will tell him no. The book gives more detail and I feel like the book is more interesting than the movie because when you go watch the movie you don't know really what's going on. My understanding
One of those differences is when Ponyboy takes the first punch in the rumble. Ponyboy takes the first hit in the movie while Darry is supposed to take it. This detail is important because it affects how the fight continues. Another difference between the book and the movie was when darry slapped ponyboy for coming home late in the book instead of pushing him. If darry slapped ponyboy in the movie then the intense emotions that he felt were strongly portrayed. The last difference between the book and the movie is the direction each gang is on. In the book greasers as well as socs were east versus west, while in the movie they were north versus south. These are the many differences between the book and he movie, however, there are many
Book or movie? This seems to be a pretty common debate, especially seeing there are so many differences between the two. Ranging from the beginning of the story to the visual aspects of the characters as compared to their descriptions, the differences are quite apparent. The book “The Outsiders” is a wonderful story, and has been read year after year by the youths in schools. But, how does it really compare to its later made movie version?
In the book and movie, “The Outsiders”, they each have many similarities. In the book and movie, “The Outsiders”, the allusion is “nothing gold can stay.” This is a poem by Robert Frost. This is significant because the greasers killed the soc’s. The greasers had done something that they knew was wrong. The greasers gold is gone. In the book and movie, “The Outsiders”, another allusion is “Gone With The Wind.” This is significant because “Gone With The
The movie ‘The Outsiders’, directed by Francis Coppola, based on the book ‘The Outsiders’ written by S.E Hinton, left out quite a few scenes in the movie. The origin of the movie was distinct from the origin of the book. Of course, the movie is never really a carbon-copy of the book. Francis might have misinterpreted some of the significance and representations from the book. Although Francis did make the movie as comparable to the book as much as he could, some of the scenes are just not in the book. But, the scenes is not the only thing different between the movie and the and the book. The actors that portray the characters from the book, do not look as described in the descriptions of each character. In the following paragraphs I will provide
Isn’t it odd how Movies and books tend to differ from each other? Honestly, whether it be a scene added into the movie or another one completely left out (maybe due to time or the people who made the movie seeing the particular scene as not quite relevant to the plot.) Either way, i’ll be seeing to a particular book and the movie that came out because of it.
