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.
However, in the movie their clothes portrayed a sense of stable income as their clothes looked new. Also, the actors played the characters well, however, they could’ve showed the relationships between the characters better. Steinbeck focused on the characters relationships because he used them to compare and contrast, but in the movie, the relationships were not well shown, such as the relationship of Slim and George. Although the movie had some elements that can been improved, Of Mice and Men is still a great movie because it depicts the novel very well. The movie had elements that created mood and atmosphere, elements that made it a good movie, and elements that could have been used better to reflect the novel in a better way.
However, the film is dependent on the directors vision and audience has little say on how the story is portrayed. I would rather read novels than watch films because novels provide better story experiences for their audiences through its increased creative freedom through imagination, lack of time limits, increased exposure, and the social experience it provides. I will be using two novels turned films for my analysis of this topic. I will be using examples from Golding's The Lord of the Flies and Morr... ... middle of paper ... ...lling stories than films. Novels are better than films because they give their audience complete creative control over how they visualize the story.
Also, these movies had extremely different uses of music and visuals, but both movie versions incorporated them well for the ambiance it tried to obtain. Finally, both movie versions drew characters to captivate the audience; however in Ethan Hawke’s version, the characters were used so effectively that it was easy to feel involved with them. While both these versions of Hamlet had a captivating ambiance, Ethan Hawke’s version was more appealing due to the intellectual incentive that it offered. Setting and mood are methods of direction that can change a film’s ambiance and bring on an adundance of intelligent thoughts. Hawke and Branagh both reproduced Hamlet with a setting and mood that were both appealing for an audience.
Thus, these different elements included in the movie adaptation are what sets it apart from the novel. In conclusion, the novel version of the Sword in the Stone is superior since it goes into much more detail, which furthers the development of the characters as well as the plot. Novels will usually be better when compared to the movie adaption because it allows for imagination, so that there can be many different interpretations for a single sentence, opposed to having one fixed view. Film adaptations contain more similarities than differences, but these differences are far more relevant since they are what sets apart the original novel from the movie. Comparing and contrasting the book and film may not seem to yield any meaningful results, yet, when analyzed closely, these insignificant figures are actually the deciding factor of which is preferred.
Also the inspector came across as more scheming and not half as democratic as in the play. I didn't particularly take to this, as one of the reasons I liked the character of the inspector is because of his political and authoritative persona. The screenplay also gave the play a more si-fi/paranormal genre with the inspector disappearing into thin air at the end and his slightly more obvious ability to predict the future. I did particularly enjoy the flashbacks to each family members first meeting with Eva throughout the screenplay. These little sections
The most obvious of these changes is the role that constable Millen plays. ‘Wop’ May who is instrumental in tracking the ‘Mad Trapper’ is questionable. The film is a fairly faithful adaptation of the book. The amateurish style of the book gives it some appeal as a more sleek and sophisticated style wouldn’t evoke a sense of angst’ desperation and confusion that the novel does. Works Cited Wiebe, R.

By using this genre of filmmaking, Hawks had an effective vehicle with which to retain the tone of Chand... ... middle of paper ... ...yer's daughter. In the book, Marlowe had less difficulty respecting his employer through his unnatural sense of chivalry. Raymond Chandler and Howard Hawks both create incredible pieces of art with their individual representations of The Big Sleep. The differences between the works allow them to converse and argue with each other, thus creating a new interpretation on the themes of the story. Hawks' version seems to be about Marlowe's struggle with the unnatural world, Chandler's about a struggle with nature.
As time goes on, history has a way of getting distorted from its most truthful form. Time causes people to drift away from accuracy and become more interested in what they want to remember. Hollywood has a reputation of creating films that cater more to the average viewer, rather than the history buff. Inglorious Basterds, by Quentin Taratino, take very liberal liberty with a history story, and creates a story that will sell to the crowd. This may seem dubious, but it is often not such a bad thing.
Without having the long dialogue between the King and Queen players, the viewer was able to focus on the main events (the crime) and the effects. Therefore, the difference in dialogue between the play-within-a-play and the movie-within-a-movie enhanced my understanding of the Mousetrap and the events that fueled the making of it. The play version of The Mousetrap included more than just the murder and its effects. It included the vows made when married, a husband’s philosophy on promises, etc. As a reader, these detracted from the purpose and effectiveness of The Mousetrap.
