Adapting Three Little Pigs

September 7th, 2011 by Kevin L. Ferguson · 11 Comments · Prof Ferguson, ¶4 Bazin

Clearly the Disney version of “Three Little Pigs” was different in important ways from the fairy tale we read. What parts of the Disney adaption would you call “grammatical idiosyncracies” of the Disney version, and what would you call the “style of the original”? Post in the comments box below.

My response to Bazin’s “Adaption”

September 7th, 2011 by Kaitlin Stevens · No Comments · ¶4 Bazin

“The book is better than the movie.” A line I’m sure we’ve all heard before, which in many cases probably reigns true. In many other cases, however, I’m sure other people would beg to differ. It’s really all a matter of opinion and perspective. From Bazin’s perspective, film adaptions generally do not quite do the […]

Bazin response

Bazin had great opinions on the matter of adaptation. He makes arguements that open up my eyes and make me question my initial reaction. I’ve always said that movies will never be as good as the books. They always fall short because not only are they given this time limit in which they have to cut […]

Bazin Adaptation Response

September 7th, 2011 by martinvukaj · 2 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

After reading the essay written by Bazin numerous times and thoroughly going over the arguments presented in the piece, I found it rather intriguing. Although the sopisticated language was somewhat of a barrier (that’s what dictionaries are for) and the audience he wrote to was seemingly a group of experts in the field of film […]

Bazin Response

September 7th, 2011 by nlobello824 · 1 Comment · ¶4 Bazin

In my opinion the Bazin essay was misleading disagreement with the fact that novels are adapted into film. He uses words to describe his feelings towards adaptations using words such as, “theoretical, incontestable, and secondary,” yet has an underlying respect for filmmakers visions of film. It seems funny to me how Bazin could show the […]

September 6th, 2011 by Huy Le · 2 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

Reading comments from everyone about the Bazin was very insightful. I do think that the essay was a bit hard to read and there was a handful of references that Bazin made that ive personally never have the chance to read. With that said, what Bazin is trying to say is that adaptation is necessary […]

Bazin Response

September 6th, 2011 by Erickson Bryan · 4 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

To be honest Bazin’s essay “Adaptation, or the Cinema as Digest” was a challenging piece to read and to respond is challenging for me. Bazin’s essay appears to me that he is trying to make us choose which is better cinema or the original literature itself. Bazin is giving his point of view of adaptation […]

Response To Bazin

September 6th, 2011 by Denisha Bayley · 3 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

Reading “Adaptation, or the Cinema as Digest,” maybe tedious and confusing at first but after dissecting his thesis, figuring out Andre Bazin is trying to say is rather simple. Bazin is merely questioning whether or not adaptations of literature to film should be made. He starts his essay off by debating the integrity of adaptations […]

Bazin Response

September 6th, 2011 by Stephen Mahoney · 4 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

After reading Bazin’s essay about converting literary work into film I feel the same way as I did before I read it. I have always felt that the original work of art is always better as it goes into more detail with the characters, plot, setting, etc. Although Bazin supports both sides of the argument […]

Bazin Response

September 5th, 2011 by Jeen Kim · 4 Comments · ¶4 Bazin

After reading Bazin’s essay I realized that I felt the same way before reading it and after reading it. He took no distinguished stance on the matter of adaptation. He merely gives his ideas on film adaptation and hopefully that sheds some light to the reader. Although, he gave several valid examples supporting both sides […]
