    Out with the Old and in With the New The success of both the traditional and modern movie versions of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet are dictated by their settings. The traditional version of this legendary love story was filmed in 1968 and is set in the 1600's, placing the characters in the time period from which the story was derived. The more modern movie version on the other hand, filmed in 1996, places the characters in the time period of when the movie was filmed rather than when it was wr...
  • Emma Thompson Version Edward

    The novel Sense and Sensibility was truly a masterpiece. Written by Jane Austen this ironic love story has captured the heart of readers for years. The popularity of Austen as a novelist can now be experienced through film. This book has been adapted into various screenplays, including one by Emma Thompson. Another version of the film was done by the BBC. Perhaps it is the manner in which it was filmed, the character choices or other aspects of the films that make them so different. Though they ...
  • Freder And Maria

    Set around the year 2000, Metropolis is a depiction of the future, yet it is viewed more intensely in the twenties style. In this view we can truly appreciate the work, without the cynicism of todays standards, for the marvel that it is. The "costliest and most ambitious picture ever screened in Europe" (Jensen) the film was premiered on January 10, 1927 at the UFA Palace, in Berlin, before an enormous audience which included many members of the political and artistic hierarchy. Initially Metrop...
  • First Film Ever After

    A Cinderella Story When examining adaptations of fairytales you must look at the original source. This can be a very difficult task because with fairytales we never really know where the original came from. I will base my paper on the theory that the original tale of Cinderella comes from the Grimm Brothers version of Ashputtle. In comparison we will examine two movies. First there is the Disney version Cinderella. Secondly we will look at the movie "Ever After". Characterization is an important...

    The Beauty That Is Their Similarities and Differences The parts of life which we enjoy with a great sense of emotion, conviction, and willingness, the parts of life which we claim to be of the most beautiful, all these wonders, a mere matter of opinion. For when we come across a source where we find great enlightenment, and an intense connection or agreement with its displays we all take from it a slightly different version. Since the birth of Shakespeare's play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet,...
  • Modern Version
    472 words
    The most important purpose for adopting a Shakespearean play to film is showing the action and the real emotion of the play. I feel the Dicaprio version fulfills this purpose better than the Zeffereli version for the following reasons. Overall it is more entertaining, more attention is paid to action scenes such as the intensity of the feud, and the music really suits the play and makes it that much easier to watch. When I say the modern version is more entertaining I mean that it is far more ca...
  • Film And The Novel The Boys

    Comparison Between Lord Of The Flies Film And Novel Many novels have tried to adopt the idea of their story on to a film, such as the novel Lord Of The Flies. It is apparent that in most cases the novel is more successful than the film, since it has a greater capability to attract the readers attention by using literally devices such as symbolism, and meaningful events through out the story. I believed that the novel Lord Of The Flies was far more superior to the film Lord Of The Flies, because ...

    We have watched two versions of Romeo and Juliet. One was made in 1968 by a man called Franco Zeffirelli and was set in Verona, in the Middle Ages. A man named Baz Luhrmann made the other movie in 1996. This version was set in America and is very modern. The stars in the Zeffirelli version were Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. The Luhrmann version starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. One of the main differences between the two versions of Romeo and Juliet, was the opening. The Zeffirell...

    Compare and Contrast the ways in which the film version of The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and The Color Purple treat the political and social questions raised in the corresponding novels. Alice Walker and Alan Sillitoe novels are an illustrative tale of our society inevitable course, and the social and political issues prevalent in that period. These issues have sometimes placed these books in precarious positions where they create controversy in these same societies. So controversia...

    Is more of the same too much? Even when what you started with was pure treasure? That's the question that greets viewers of the restored, re-edited version of Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War fantasia, APOCALYPSE NOW, a film that codified genius in its first release and is here presented under a different title, with almost an hour of scenes cut from its original release. The critical consensus is that the re-edited version embarrasses current Hollywood product by emerging as the best film of ...

There he began his career as ...
