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.
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 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.
Without ... ... middle of paper ... ...e book, Elizabeth is depicted as being sweet and intelligent, while in the book, she was depicted as being sometimes rude. A big difference between the book and the movie is that in the book, Darcy and Elizabeth were always surrounded by others, but in the movie, they could be found being by themselves a lot. This difference could be very pivotal to the meaning of the book. In the movie and book Pride and Prejudice, there are differences from the movie and the book. Some of the differences between the movie and the novel can be a direct cause of Joe Wright having his own opinions in regards to how he believes the message should be depicted.
Many of the scenes involving Jim Lovell’s family are not in the book or are different from those in the book. This is done in order to appeal to a larger audience, not just people who are interesting in science or history. A good example of this is the scene in the movie on Hallo... ... middle of paper ... ...oon fairly accurately, despite some major differences. The movie focuses more on certain things and less than others than the book does. There are also parts that are in the book or the movie, but not in the other.
From novel to Screen: The Utopian Delusion By: Katlyn Fitzpatrick “The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.” - Lois Lowry, The Giver. The much loved novel, The Giver, written by Lois Lowry was turned into a movie by Phillip Noyce. Authors and movie producers often have different ideas about how to portray a subject, in this case, the beloved story of The Giver.
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.
However, perceptions between the two differ from even each other. As Lupack says: In asserting an adaptation we are not really comparing book with film but rather interpretation with interpretation - the novel that we ourselves have recreated in our imaginations, out of which we have constructed our own individualized “movie,” and the novel on which the filmmaker has worked a parallel transformation. (10) Although we do have our different perceptions about the novel and the story within it, these perceptions are, more or less, similar to each other. As these only vary so much from each other, they can still be a considerably veritable basis of comparison for the two versions of this story, the versions focused on being the novel and the the film. When comparing between our variations, we can compare the changes to see “how much of written work’s plot and characterization has been translated into the new medium, how comprehensive and intelligent an understanding of the original (its strengths, its weaknesses) underlies the translation” (Hunter 159).
The “Life of Pi” book to movie compare and contrast is one of many differences and similarities that all either add to the effectiveness of the movie or take away from it. Some similarities remain that keep the movie in line with the book, however, there are many differences that leave gaps in Pi’s life story. The “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel is a rather extensive book that adds many details to almost everything. The movie cuts down those details and gets to the main point of the story as not to bore the audience. Some details that get left out make the story a little bit harder to comprehend, however, other details that get eliminated add to the excitement of the movie.
As most everyone knows, there are differences between a book and it’s movie adaptation. This is applicable to the book and it’s movie counterpart To Kill a Mockingbird, as well. But aside from the differences, there are also similarities between these two. The similarities are quite apparent, the movie plot mainly follows the basic plot that the book took, leaving the viewer’s with a sense of accomplishment, as this is sometimes not achieved in the highest degree. Scout still has a brother, Jem.
