    It is fairly similar.

    I like both, but I must admit that the movie isn't quite as exciting. But it is fairly close.

            I don't know if they've made another '1984' movie but this movie version you are planning on watching is the one with John Hurt right?

                the book is alot more indepth than the movie....I read the book first, and to be honest, the movie was a bit dissapointing.

                  Though the movie is not bad, it's really not good as the novel... IMO, there are some points of the novel that are not related in the movie (of course, when you make a movie, you have to make choice because it's not easy to show all the details like in a novel)...

                  It's a long time now I've read teh book and seen the movie, so I guess I need an update to be more accurate in my analysis.

                  1984 is one of my fav. books and I remember I was a bit disappointed about the movie...

                    Hate to burst your bubble, but there's a 99.999% chance your teacher has seen the movie too. Speaking from a teacher's perspective, you can almost always tell when someone does a paper just based on the movie because we look for things in your paper that weren't in the movie and if they're not there, well...

                    That being said, use the Cliff Notes or Spark Notes and try to pick out some scenes that weren't in the movie and at least read them.

                        The movie and CLif Notes/Spark Notes will not help you, because your instructor is likely highly familiar with both.


                        Just bear down and read it. Write your paper kind of as you go.


                        Then the last thing you do is edit and make it more cohesive.


                        This may save you some time, instead of having to write it all at once AFTER you have read it.

                          i ended up reading the majority of the 1984 and from what i gathered the movie was very similar to the novel. Most of the dialogue in the movie is actually directly quoted from the book.
                          The movie really didnt do the book justice, the way that orwell writes it and uses scene painting lets your imagination run wild. The movie itself made me percieve the book in a different manner, the way they filmed it made the book seem bland imo.

                          thanks everyone that commented, i will get you guys some CP's

                          i actually just finished writing the paper and it came out really great. specialblend154>procrastination.
