1984 & Equilibrium

A couple of days ago I got to know about the movie which is based on the Novel “1984” by George Orwell. While the book shares the point of view of the protagonist, the movie tried well to do so. With that said, for the movie to share it all with such restriction on time it’s almost impossible to share it in entirety. In the book, the author has the freedom to express himself and share what he feels without any limitations. The most significant events in the book appear to have less importance in the movie and at times I was like why didn’t they include it.

I have not read the Harry Potter book Series but have watched all the movies(many times over) and I liked them all. I have heard my friends say that the books are much better than the movie but I could never understand it and I was always like, “How could the books be better than the movies”, and my friends were like, “You have to read the books in order to truly understand what it’s like to be in Harry Potter universe”.

The movie “1984” starts exactly like the movie “Equilibrium” (minus all cool action scenes, CGI, picture quality and of course Christian Bale) but the ending is very depressing, well actually they are the pretty opposite. I am glad that George Orwell wasn’t right about 1984(not even close) but it seems we are getting there in some bizarre sense. If you are too lazy to read the book, watch the movie instead but let me warn that it’s pretty dark, you are not going to like it and you will have to go out and have some fresh air after watching the movie(yes it’s that depressing).
