  • The Blind Side( Michael Oher)

    itself, nothing short of a miracle. The focal point of Michael Lewis’s The Blind Side is the story of Oher’s transition from a teenager so neglected by society that the Memphis school board can’t really account for his academic record to an eighteen-year-old college recruit with the potential for earning millions when he hits the NFL draft (which he will do this April). Though Oher is the main narrative thrust, the book is a wide-ranging examination of the culture of American football, its tactical...

  • I Am Legend: Book vs Movie

    by author Richard Matheson coming up with the storyline and writing the original book version. While Richard Matheson’s post-apocalyptic science fiction book, I Am Legend, and Francis Lawrence’s post-apocalyptic science fiction movie, I Am Legend, both have similarities and differences, in the end, the original book version prevails mainly because the movie version alters the original storyline too much.

    the Rose: Novel vs. Movie Often times when a novel becomes a movie, critics judge the movie on a more difficult scale than they would if the movie did not have a book to be compared too. When a situation like this occurs, the audience tends to lean one way or the other, towards the novel or towards the movie. From my experiences, I have liked the books either more or just equally as much as the movie, but never the movie more than the book. Differences from the movie to the book can make a huge...

  • Fight Club Movie vs. Book

    Even considering the complicated format of the book, David Fincher managed to almost perfectly illustrate the novel Fight Club, by Chuck Palahniuk, in his movie of the same name. Although tempting to compare a book and its film counterpart on even grounds, as a substitute of one another, the tools used to create each one differ greatly and thus should be evaluated on a thematic level. While the reading audience has the chance to reread, and absorb the themes in layers, the other audience is seeing...
