Cold Mountain is an award winning book and movie telling the story of Inman as he returns home. Both book and movie are so critically acclaimed, but in the end, which is the better of the two?
Book vs Movie
Stephen King’s The Shining was adapted by the famous Stanley Kubrick starring Jack Nicholson. This movie is so famous and well loved, despite being so different from the book in a lot of ways. I talk about the differences that were made, as well as talking about why I love both book and movie for their separate strengths.
Guillermo Del Toro directs the movie adaptation which stars Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett. How does it compare with the noir carnival book by William Lindsay Gresham? This is a great adaptation, but there are some changes to be talked about. I also analyze the characters and the message of this great story.
Beloved is the Pulitzer prize winning novel by Toni Morrison. It’s about people that are haunted by their past-their past abuses as well as their own actions from the past. The movie stars Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover in the lead roles. The movie follows the book very closely, but there is still a lot to break down here as we discuss the differences between book and movie, and the deep symbolism in both.
