  1. Both Jonas and Tobey Maguire are against their societies not showing much emotion, or not knowing about too many emotions. Although Jonas keeps it to himself and The Giver, while Tobey Maguire tries to remind everyone of what emotions they have.

  2. A similarity between that movie and the giver is the fact that they want color. They don't want to see the world as just a boring, colorless world.

  3. Jonas and spiderman are sad that other people cant see color

  4. This clip is really similar to Jonas's reaction to no color because, When he first finds out about it he whines about how they should still have them and how pretty they are. In the clip the boy is explaining how they need colors and choices not just picking everything for them.

  5. The guy who is making everyone show emotion seems very passionate about the colors and wants everyone to see them and show them. Jonas also is very passionate about the colors that he sees and wants to share them with everybody else and wants everyone to see in color.

  6. The comparison of Pleasantville and The Giver is similar because in The Giver, Jonas has to focus to see all the colors, and in the clip, they had to feel emotions to bring out their colors.

  7. Both Jonas and the kid from the clip want there to be colors. They both seem to love them and wonder why they had never experienced colors before. (In Jonas’s case, why they got rid of color and in the other kids case, why anyone wouldn’t want the color.)

  8. Similarities in the movie clip and Jonas's reaction include both of the young boys were very joyful about color.Color to them meant everything.It brought joy and love to there eyes. They wanted everyone else to feel the way they felt.Lots of people didn't even know what color was.They feel as if the whole community should see color!They feel it's not fair people can not experience this amazing feeling.

  9. The similarities between the movie clip and The Giver are, Jonas is seeing color and all of the other people are not. That you need to show emotion to see color. That people in the community need to see color. He feels excited trying to get people to see color.

  10. The clip From the movie Pleasantville Shows people gaining color as they show immense emotions and how normally they are seen in black and white while in the giver everyone was genetically altered to be color blind and only jonas can see the colors after being given to him by the giver and such. The two are Similar seeing how The main character it seems in pleasntville wants the people to see the nice vibrant color and Jonas feels that the community should also have the ability to see the colors

  11. So both the movie clip and Jonas’s reaction both show that everything should be in color. They both bring it out the emotions of people and they make everybody actually different other than having everyone be the same and have the same emotions about everything. They both would color to be back because it is wonderful thing too.

  12. In the 1998 movie Pleasantville it had shown many similarities to the book The Giver. In the short video of the movie Pleasantville I had picked up that the people in the movie did not have color like in the book. I also realized the reaction that the crowd had, was like Jonas's first reaction when he saw color. I thought that the son in the movie trying to convince the judge to allow color resembled Jonas's thought on having no color in the community.

  13. In the book “The Giver” and the movie “Pleasantville” they have a lot in common. One reason is that the people in the community can’t see color. The only time they can see color is if you bypass the colorblind genetic or emotionally in “Pleasantville”. Although in “Pleasantville” they are not colorblind it is just nothing is in color. In “The Giver” the people in the community are color blind except for people that have the rare light colored eyes that can see color. That is how “The Giver” and “Pleasantville” are similar.

  14. At the very end of the video, everybody was blown away that the judge became colorful. They all were amazed. Jonas was amazed when he saw the color red, and he wants to see other colors. He doesn't want to have it chosen rather they don't see color, he wants to see color.

    ReplyDelete
  15. In The Giver Jonas feels it is unfair to not have color in the community, in the clip he wants everyone to turn to color. I feel they are both similar because everything is the same in the clip like the man goes to work and the women cook and clean. In The Giver, they have roles chosen for everyone just like the clip everyone has a set role pretty much chosen for them.

  16. Pleasantville people start turning colors and everybody notices it but in The giver only Jonas notices the color red and it's a flash of red.

    1. I wanted a comparison but you have given me a difference.

  17. In my opinion, I think the comparison is that they both dont see color. They both are fighting for something. They both are not allowed to lie. I think Jonas is trying to bring the real personality out by saying that we should have choices and be independent. Toby is trying to bring out the real people for example, the judge and his dad are turned to color at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Some similarities I found between this clip nd Jonas seeing color for the first time were that in both examples they were just so amazed at the sight they were almost speechless. The character arguing about why they need color in the short clip feels that it is important to have color because it brings out your true personality and there is nothing wrong with it. In the Giver Jonas says that there is nothing wrong with color and he also thinks that everyone should see it. Those are the similarities between the short clip of Pleasantville and Jonas from the Giver.

  19. When Jonas's finds out that he can see color I bet he felt different and that everyone one should and that he should not have something as special as seeing colors.
    How I see it as is the main boy in the short clip is Jonas's and the judge is someone who do not believe that Jonas is see colors and that Jonas is crazy.
    I think that Jonas would want them to have colors and like in the short clip the many charter like is helping everyone have color and see color yeah he might be being mean but it works and that is how I see it I see the main charter being Jonas and he just want some way and some how help everyone in his community see color just like he can.

  20. In the short film we watched called “pleasantville” there were many similarities to the “The Giver” One of which is how Jonas feels about colors. Both of the main characters can see beyond the most people in there society. And both feel like everyone should be able to see these colors. Jonas believes the whole community should see the colors and the same in the short film.

    Both in the clip and book, the response of color is a shock the character (Jonas in the book). The character in the clip was trying to convince the judge while in the book, Jonas kept asking questions and thought it was unfair that not everyone can see the beautiful colors. In the clip, little by little more color would show up. That is how life was for Jonas. First he started to see the color red. Then eventually learned all of the colors.~~ I actually want to see this movie.~~

  22. I am going to call the person who is explaining color to his father in the video, X.

    Jonas and X both are both kind of flabbergasted on what their communities are missing out on. They both think that their communities should be able to see color, they believe their people are missing out on something huge. Jonas can't explain it, but X seems to be able to explain it to his father and his father can see it. Jonas, however, is not able to share it with everybody because of his job; he is not allowed to speak of what he does during his training.

    So in short, they both are sort of flabbergasted because they think that their communities should be able to see color.

  23. Both Bud and Jonas are very passionate about seeing color and they really want other people to be able to see it too.

  24. I found that David felt the same way that Jonas feels, basically. He felt that the people deserved to have colors. Jonas felt the same way. Jonas feels that it's their right to have colors, to see colors, to be in color. David felt the same way. He felt that it was not unruly or wrong for people to being in color.

  25. Both the movie clip and the book talk about colors. Both Jonas and Bud talk about how people need to see colors. They both want to have colors and they got heated about it too. They want colors in their community because they believe that people are just as beautiful with it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jonas feels that colors are a beautiful thin and can show more emotion than just black and light, while bud/spider man feels that they are also beautiful. In both the book and the clip someone feels that colors are bad and is in control.

    ReplyDelete
  27. In both examples, color is a new thing. When Jonas first sees color, he thinks that it is a disadvantage for anyone not to see it. He thinks it should be spread everywhere. In Pleasantville, things work much the same way, except the people only get the color when they understand it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. These two clips are very similar because both Jonas and the main character from the movie are so excited about color and they want to share the experience with everybody. I think they feel very similar about the fact that ther is no color. They both know that it's there, and they think that it should be allowed. They don't see any problems with having color.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Bud and Jonas both agree that there should be color. They both don't want the world to all stay the same. They want people and things to be vibrant and colorful instead of gray and dull. They both want change.

    ReplyDelete
  30. In both the movie clip and the book they really want color and they want people to accept color. In the movie clip people already know about color and in the book Jonas is just upset that people can't see the color. Where we are now in the book is sort of a before picture an the movie clip is after people see color.

    ReplyDelete
  31. They are both upset that the world can't see colors. They want the world to be able to see what they see. They want to get the whole community to see colors and he happy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. In the clip, Toby is fighting for the right to have color. He is getting people to express their emotions to turn to color. When Jonas found out about color, he was upset that the rest of the community couldn't see it because it was so beautiful. Toby and Jonas both have similar thoughts about color because they both think it is beautiful and everybody should be able to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. In the short film clip, Tobey Maguire wants to let everybody know that the ability to see and be colorful is inside of them, even the judge. In The Giver, Jonas wants everybody to have the ability to see color because it is beautiful and it makes everything in the community vibrant. Tobey wonders why some people don't want to be colorful, just like how Jonas wonders why the community had color taken away from them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. In the book The Giver and the movie Pleasantville there are similarities in Jonas and the boys reaction. They both think it is unfair for people to not be able to see in color and think that the rules in their community are outrageous.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Jonas wants everyone to be able to see color. He thinks it is unfair that he and the giver are the only ones with the ability to see it. Bud is trying to prove that color is an important thing and is fighting for it to be excepted by others. Jonas wants to have every one see color, because it is such a beautiful thing. They both are trying to prove that color is a glorious thing and that everyone should be able to see and cherish it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Both in the short clip and the book, Bud and Jonas are both very angry about not having color. They feel that people should be able to make their own decisions, and let their true selves shine through. In the clip, Bud tries to convince everyone that people should be allowed to have their own colors. In the book, Jonas tells the giver that it isn´t fair people can´t see the colors. Both of them feel that color is needed for variety in the world.

    ReplyDelete
  37. In the movie "Pleasantville", people can only see colors when they express their emotion. Until then, everything is in black and white. In the book "The Giver", only Receivers of Memory can see colors, to everyone else everything is black and white. Even after they become Receivers of Memory they can only see all colors until they are trained by an older Receiver of Memory. Both Main characters don't agree with the fact that people can't see colors and feel everyone should be able to.

  38. Both the man in PLeasantville and Jonas feel that everyone should see colors and witness how they paint a beautiful scene. The man and Jonas both seemed excited and enthusiasic about their new finding.

    ReplyDelete
  39. One of the similarities between the community is that they noth cannot see color. Jonas and Bud both feel the same way about not having color. They believe that color should not be taken away because it is a wonderful thing to have. In the movie Bud is talking to his dad and the judge, and he gets both of them to come to color. I think that whenever one of the people experiences emotions or feelings they get color.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The movie and Jonas were both happy about the colors when they first saw them. They feel like it is a horrible thing to have and that they shouldn't have any color changes in the place.

    1. This post contradicts itself. In the first sentence you say they were happy about colors then in the next sentence you write that it is a "horrible thing to have" and "shouldn't have any color changes."

  41. Both the man in the clip and Jonas love colors and think everyone should be able to experience them. Just like Jonas tries to do with Asher, the boy in the clip does to the man by talking about her and he turns color. However, when Jonas tried showing Asher colors, he couldn't see them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Jonas thinks that without color there is a piece of the world missing just as the kid thinks his dad thinks there is a piece missing without his wife. Jonas and his dad are both upset that they can't have the world the way they want it. The kid like Jonas thinks that Color could happen just like how he thinks that the men could stay home and clean and the girls could go to work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bud's reaction to color is that it is a good thing and should stay. Jonas's reaction is also good and that color should have never been gotten rid of.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that Spiderman and Jonas share just about the same reaction when he finds out about colors and when Spiderman finds out about gender equality. I think that their responses are similar because they both wish that everyone can see like they do, and they both tried to show someone else to see if they think the same. In Spiderman's case it was his dad, and it was Asher in Jonas' case.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jonas feels everyone should be able to see color because he wants to be able to make decisions. And Bud from the movie says he wants everyone to be able to make their own choices so they can be able to break from the rules and see color. The comparison is that both characters want people to be able to think freely and see the world differently.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bud wants people to be colors because that means that there is some sort of feeling inside them. Jonas wants the people in his community to see colors because it makes the world more beautiful.The Judge in the courtroom screams at Bud the way Jonas wishes he could scream at the people in the past who decided to take away color.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think that Bud and Jonas are both very passionate about color. They both want everyone to experience it and see it for themselves. The difference is, in Pleasantville, Bud can get other people to see color themselves, while Jonas and the Giver are the only ones able to see color.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Similarities in opinion in the 1998 movie, Pleasantville, and The Giver about color are that they should be allowed. They should what is inside of the people. Between Jonas and Bud, their rants about no having color are similar because they both believe that color should be seen by people and Bud seems to make the connection that color isn't only on the outside, but that it is within a person too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. In this clip from Pleasantville, Bud is arguing something similar to Jonas. In Pleasantville, no one has true feelings, all women stay home while the men go to work. It is very similar to the idea of sameness in The Giver. Jonas wants the color just so people could have a simple choice, even if it was only choosing a red or blue tunic. Both Jonas and Bud are fighting against the idea of sameness and not having choices.

    ReplyDelete
  50. One similarity I noticed is that both communities have grey people and one main person that can see color. In The Giver Jonas wanted to give everyone the ability to see color after he got it, but had no way how. In this clip the main person wanted everyone to have color and in order to do that he had to give them emotion.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Just like Jonas, Spider-man asked why there had to be no color in people. He felt there should be color in everyone and that color was something that defined a person and what they choose to do.

    ReplyDelete
  52. A similarity about Jonas seeing colors and Bud changing the people from black and white to actual colors is that they are passionate about it. They both want everyone to see that there is more than just black and white and that things can change. Bud turns everyone colors by revealing who they actually are on the inside, and Jonas tries to help people see the colors by trying to transmit a memory of colors from him to them. Bud is successful, but Jonas is not.

    ReplyDelete
  53. When Jonas finds out about the community not having color he is saying that they should have it back just as bud from the clip.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Jonas and the people in the movie both want to have color in the community. Jonas and the people in the movie also think color is amazing and everyone should be able to see color.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Some similarities I found was everyone was very excited and surprised about when they were able to see color just like Jonas. How the clip compares with what Jonas thinks about colors is they both think the people should be able to see the colors. They this because it is in everyone and they shouldn't be keeping it from the people.

    ReplyDelete
  56. In The Giver Jonas wishes everyone would see colors. In the clip Bud also want everyone to see the colors. It shows that both are amazed and think that every thing should be seen with color so everything is not the same. They are upset because other people don't get to see how beautiful the world is when everything is not black and white.

    ReplyDelete
  57. In the movie clip, Bud said that something can't be stopped if its inside of somebody. Bud is quite passionate when he talks about this to the judge. Jonas is also passionate about colors when he talks to the Giver. He feels that everyone should be allowed to see colors. Both Jonas and Bud seem as if they dislike sameness. On the side note, I noticed that the judge said,"You're not allowed to lie." That is what Jonas is taught from a very early age. I also noticed Jonas' community has almost a plastic feel. Nobody shows their real emotions. This is the same as the community in the movie clip.

    ReplyDelete
  58. In both Pleasantville and The Giver, the main character(Jonas and Spider-man) wants there to be lots of color for the community. Both communities also have people against it, but Jonas can not change people into color the way Spider-man can. By just getting people to show strong emotion Spider-man can turn your average Joe into color, while people in the Giver can only see color if they receive the memory of color. (only people with light eyes can receive memories). Last, in Pleasantville everyone can see color if given correctly, but not everyone can see color in the Giver.

    ReplyDelete
  59. This scene from pleasantville is very much like Jonas's reaction to color. Bud wants there to be color in life, just like Jonas does. Jonas's immediately thought that there should be color it makes people different and unique, it gives you the power to choose. That is what Bud wants too.

    ReplyDelete
  60. In The Giver, Jonas is very similar to Bud. I think this because they both started to see colors and tried to get other to see them. Jonas tried to get Asher to see them and Bud tried to get everyone to have them. Also, both of them went a little crazy because other people didn't want to have color in life. Although Jonas couldn't get others to see them, Bud convinced lots of people to find their inner rainbow!

    ReplyDelete
  61. A similarity that really stood out to me about Tobey and Jonas's reactions were their similar thoughts. Tobey didn't know why nobody wanted to have color or to see color, and Jonas didn't know why the government took color away and what was so wrong with color.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think the young man would be Jonas finding out about color, and the older man would be the Committee of Elders. The younger person is saying that things can change, just like Jonas with the colors, and the older man is saying things cannot change, just like the Committee of Elders.

    ReplyDelete
  63. In the Giver Jonas thinks its unfair that no one can see color, and in the clip he wants everyone to become color. The thing that is the same is in book Jonas wants everyone to see color and the kid wants everyone to be color

    ReplyDelete
  64. In The Giver, Jonas wants everyone to see in color. In the clip, the man wants wants everyone to see in color too. The are seeing colors and they are trying to explain why everyone else should too.

    ReplyDelete
  65. In the book, Jonas feels it's not fair that the community doesn't have color. In the video, he wants everyone to turn into color. I think that they are both similar because there is sameness in the video like the man goes to work and the women clean and cook. In the book, they have assignments chosen for everyone just like the video and everyone has assignments pretty much chosen for them.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I remember in the book "The Giver" Jonas saw color at first and thought that it was all unfair that no body could see color and people should be able to see colors if they wanted to. Also in this video they guy wanted every one to have color which is basically the same.

    ReplyDelete
  67. In the book The Giver and the movie Pleasantville, there are some similarities between the main characters. In the book, The Giver, Jonas starts to see color for the first time. In the movie, Pleasantville, Bud sees color for the first time too. Both of the characters were amazed by color but both didn’t understand why other people in the community didn’t have color. They both found color a passionate thing and wanted everyone else to see and understand it too.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Jonas and the boy in the short clip are similar as they both want everyone to experience color. They both think color is something that everyone should see, and for it to not be taken away. The two are both passionate about how everyone should see color and how it should be in everyone's lives.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Jonas and Bud really want to have color in their community. They are both passionate about it, and think the world will be a better place with color. Bud succeeds, by making the people show their true emotions. The only way Jonas could spread color is by transmitting memories to everyone, which is pretty much impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  70. In the clip, Toby didn't know why no one wanted to see color. In They Giver, Jonas doesn't understand exactly why the government decided to take away color and why it was so bad for everyone to have.

    ReplyDelete
  71. In the book, Jonas wants everyone to see colors because he thinks they make the world, or in this case, their community, more beautiful. In the clip, Bud wants everyone to be in color to show that they all have their own unique personality. Both Bud and Jonas love and want colors in their world.

    ReplyDelete
  72. A comparison between Tobey McGuire from Pleasantville and Jonas in the Giver is that the both believe that it's unfair that their communities do not have an ability to have this unbelievably beautiful and magical thing. They both think their communities deserve to see and have color and emotion.

    ReplyDelete
  73. A similarity that stood out about Toby and Jonas’s reactions were their very similar thoughts.Toby couldn’t understand why nobody wanted to have or see color in their lives.Where Jonas didn’t know why the government took away color and what was so wrong about having color in Utopia.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Jonas and Toby Maguire both feel very strongly about color. They know what it is like to see color and wish that everyone had the chance to feel how it feels. They both know that their is a whole other world with colors, it allows them to make their own decisions and feel feelings they have never felt before. The communities are too boring for them now that they see colors and they want everyone to enjoy it with them.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Bud and Jonas are on the same side when it comes to color. Jonas wants the people in his community to be able to enjoy and see the colors, and Bud wants the people to let the colors free, so everyone can see them. Both of the boys are fighting against the general idea of sameness, and liberation. They want the people to be able to live their own lives, and not be confined to the limits set down for them.

    ReplyDelete
  76. One similarity between the film and the book when Jonas finds out he could see color, was that the Man in the film was just as excited about seeing colors and emotion than what Jonas had been, it seems like they would do anything for everyone else to see color. They both are against the fact that their societies cannot see color.

    ReplyDelete
  77. In the book "The Giver", Jonas thinks that everyone should be able to see color. He thinks it's unfair that nobody can see color and can't understand why they would eliminate color. In the clip from "Pleasantville", Bud wants everyone to become color. He wants them to see what a wonderful thing color is. Bud and Jonas share opinions on color. They both want others to see color and see what a beautiful thing it is. They think color is something that everyone should be able to have.

    ReplyDelete
  78. There are many similarities between the Giver and Pleasentville. One similarity I noticed was how the boy in Pleasentville and Jonas both viewed color. They both thought that it showed your personality and there was nothing wrong with it. Also I noticed how the community of elders and the person the boy in Pleasentville was arguing with both thought that everyone should be the same and color wasn't important.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Both of the main people in the stories want to make everyone see colors and think that it shouldn't be taken away from them and they try to fix it.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I believe the movie Pleasantville and the giver have the similar reactions when they find color. They both found happiness in seeing color in the world. Like in the book The Giver Jonas like Bud believes that all people should see color. That everyone should have choices.

    ReplyDelete
  81. In the clip when Bud sees color, he thinks it is great and that everyone should be able to see it much like Jonas. They both do not understand why colors should not be seen. Jonas saw flickers of it and tried to get other people to and Bud convinced others to find their inner rainbow.

    ReplyDelete
  82. In the giver Jonas wishes that everyone could see color an he thinks that is it unfair that they are unable to see the colors that his is able to see. In the clip you have to show your true colors to be color. The difference from the and the clip is that Jonas wants everyone to see color and in the clip the boy wants people to show their true colors so that they can become color.

    ReplyDelete
  83. They both are mostly the same thing. In the Giver Jonas wishes that everyone could see color and in the clip the boy want every to see and be color. Also, the judge in the clip was like the Committee of Elders.

  84. Both Bud and Jonas appear to have a love for colors, and both of them want to share these colors with others. They think everyone else deserves to and should be able to see colors like they can.

  85. I think Jonas is very similar to Bud. They both started to see colors and tried to get others to see color. Both of them thought it was unfair that others couldn't see color, Bud changed that and everyone saw color, however Jonas could do nothing to change it for the community.

  86. Some similarities are that Bud and Jonas want everyone to see in color but the head people don't want color. Jonas and Bud want everyone to see the beauty in color. Also they both found happiness when they see colors.

  87. The reactions are similar because Jonas wanted to share color so he is not the only one seeing it.The main Character of Plesentville wanted everyone to be colored.

  88. This clip and Jonas’s opinion on colors are very similar. In the clip, Bud encourages people to see colors in his community. In The Giver, Jonas thinks that his community should be able to see color and make choices. Both Jonas and Bud believe that their community should have color.

  89. Both Jonas and Bud see color and want others to see colors as they do. In Pleasantville nobody wanted to see colors but in The Giver nobody knew what color was because the community had converted to sameness.

  91. I think Jonas is similar to Bud in many ways. Both characters start realizing how the world was better with color. However Bud was able to make others see colors and Jonas could not.

  92. I think The movie clip and Jonas reaction to colors for the fist time are similar because,when the colors where show there was emotion show as well.Also they are both vary passionate about how the world should just have colors not everyone just on color

    ReplyDelete
  93. Bud and Jonas are similar in that they want colors and change. Both of them wanted everyone to experience colors like they did. But Jonas couldn't change that because only a few people in his community could receive 'memories'. Bud, however, made it so that everyone could experience color and change.
