  • Japanese In The Movie
    729 words
    Good Book, Bad Movie There have been many book to movie conversions, yet Rising Sun by Michael Crichton was one that had gone horribly wrong. Rising Sun, in addition to being a gripping mystery / thriller, functioned as a scathing attack on American apathy to Japanese economic aggression. In fact, in his afterward to the novel, Crichton says, "The Japanese are not our saviors. They are our competitors. We should not forget it". Statements like these earned Rising Sun the dubious distinction of b...
  • Novel And The Movie

    The Book, the Movie The Martian Chronicles, written in 1950, was produced in 1979 as a made-for- television mini-series. As with most adapted screenplays, the movie differs from the novel.

  • Movie Producers

    Even though a vast majority of us wish that it was possible to turn back the hands of time and change or rewrite history. However, the truth of the matter is that we simply cannot. Everything happens for a reason, and we should learn to accept it. Accept it for what it is, rather than what we would like it to be. However, to often in Hollywood the city of glamour and glitz, fortune and fame, movie producers have a tendency and even feel at liberty to rewrite American history. In my opinion this ...

  • Movie The English Teacher
    574 words
    The Dead Poets Society The movie The Dead Poets Society was an incredible story about growing and learning to think for yourself. In this movie the English teacher, John Keating stresses the phrase "Carpe Diem!" (Seize the day) to inspire his students to "suck the marrow out of life" and become free thinkers. To me, it was amazing to see how one mans inspiration can break a mold of students who did not think for themselves, and get them to start living a life where they chose their own fate. The...
