There were many similarities and differences between book and the movie. I usually find movie better, but for this I like the book better because it was some events that make much more interesting which was not included in the movie. I didn’t liked watching the movie because we watched after we read a book. Well watching a movie, I knew what is going to happened next which makes it less interesting to watched. I may have choose movie because I can see physically without reading out and imagining.
Watching the movies at home will have fewer distractions for Kelsi, and she can pick out any movie she wants to watch as well. Although some people would rather go the theater to see a movie, based on price, availability, comfort, distractions, and food, many would say that watching a movie at their own home is better. One of the main reasons that people do not choose to go to theaters today is because of the prices, and instead they stay home to watch movies. Kelsi’s family includes her parents and her three siblings. When they go to the theater together, it gets expensive.
You also do not have choice in what kind of chair you want to sit in, or how soft or hard the chair is which sometimes seems less appealing. On the other hand, when you watch the movie on TV you have to deal with pesky commercials all throughout the movie, sometimes cutting off on the most exhilarating part. The price however, is to your ultimate convenience, it is free. You will also get the seat of your choice like the sofa, the chair, or the floor all according to how you feel. However, you will not be the first to watch it and by the time the movie comes out you would probably have heard all about it.
Regardless of their form, books and movies are built using the same structure. They will both have a beginning, initial incident, rising actio... ... middle of paper ... ...pieces of details from the book to make the film fit into a certain amount of time. In the movie version of ‘War and Peace’ the scene from St. Petersburg and the events of the epilogue are not included. If a person watched the movie ‘War and Peace’ instead of reading the book, they would not do so well on their exam. Even though watching movies seem more convenient, people are still reading books.
Books in Montag’s society are forbidden to be around and read, if you are caught reading a book by anyone in the society the book would be set on fire. The society that Montag lives in has a big addiction to watching TV instead of reading. The TVs are as big as the wall and listens to the radio going
In addition, textbooks are heavy to carry around and it takes longer to find a page. Likewise with digital textbooks they are compatible with tablets, smartphones, and laptops; it’s much easier to carry around and affordable price. However, some people may argue that digital textbooks can be a distraction for people because they would not bother read anymore. The author and poet Dana Gioia argues that electronics alternatives may be a bad influence that will lead society to not read anymore. Gioia complicates matters further when she writes, “While no single activity is responsible for the decline in reading, the cumulative presence and availability of electronic alternatives increasingly have drawn Americans away from reading” (161).
E.B. White writes, “it may well turn out that people, being able to see and hear practically everything, will be specially interested in almost nothing”. I think he is right about people becoming interested in nothing which is why we have shows like reality TV so people can occupy their time. I am not against the idea of watching TV shows but there are better things to do than spend countless hours staring at a screen. This is why the TV could be dangerous because it takes away from the value of spending time outside.
There are some other shows that tend to convince us that watching television seduces our mind. I find Johnson’s argument about his article “watching television makes you smarter” confusing because he was not actually picking sides in the article and Steven’s “Thinking Outside The Idiot Box” argument about how “it’s really good at teaching you to think… about the future episode” (Steven, 296). Although I agree with the author of “Watching Television Makes you Smarter” Johnson to an extent, I cannot accept that he overlooks how much time people spends each day watching television. It has been a common discussion for us to dismiss television as a result of the negative things that most of the young viewers tend to copy and practice later on after watching. Johnson is mistaken when he says watching television makes you smarter and because he overlooks the fact that reality television does not teach us what is really going on in our society.
These are some of the reasons why I no longer go to the movies and prefer to watch movies at home on Netflix. Yes, it is true that this approach does have some trade-offs compared to a theater experience like watching on a bigger screen, or waiting for the latest blockbuster to appear on Netflix, if I ever does at all, but in balance, I believe that watching movies at home is a far better way to spend your hard-earned cash.
The first way of going about this method is to find a TV show or movie that you have not watched yet. It doesn’t matter if that is a boring documentary, a black and white movie, or a sitcom from the 90’s. Anything that is more entertaining than doing schoolwork. The next step is the easiest, hit play. While you are watching your TV show or movie, make sure to rewind on any part that you misunderstood in the slightest because this will allow you to stay unaware of the homework that is sitting right next to you.
