Different Does Not Mean Bad
The other day, I saw a trailer for the new Alice in Wonderland movie by Tim Burton. I also remember the Disney version as a kid.
Those movies, and all media based on other media, are just not the same as the original. Something gets lost in translation. They are just the interpretations of the story by the writers and director.
Would it be better off if instead of making an Alice in Wonderland movie, they made something seperate from Alice?
Because then you expect what you think the original story is really about. You cannot get mad because someone disagrees with you and has a different interpretation then you. Different is not bad. Unfortunantly, many people will brand anything different then their own opinion as ”bad” or “wrong” But in reality, everything changes based on each individual’s experience and perspective.
I wonder how writers feel when their story is turned into a movie, but it is nothing like their original:
- Are they mad about it?
- Or do they realize that someone else just had a different interpretation from theirs?
