The Movie The Legend of Sleepy Hollow written by Firing was a very interesting story that is well known around the world today. The movie was far more entertaining than reading the book If I must say so myself. Tim Burton gave a new spin to The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I myself have always enjoyed anything written or directed by Tim Burton because of his sense of horror and his creative abilities.
The characters are redefined even though Tim Burton strays away from the book and put his own ideas into what should happen in Sleepy Hollow, because of this the story is altered and more lifelike and connectible. Boron who was very important in the book is even hardly recognized in the movie even though he was willing to give his life for his love Strain. Boron who actually did give his life for Strain in the story is horribly overlooked in the movie. Although the book and the movie differ is many extremities, the movie tends to leave out the setting city ‘Terry Town”.
Also the movie calls the tree the Dead Man’s Tree but in the book it is given a proper name. In the story Boron was thought to be the Headless Horseman. This movie was far easier to follow then the story. Also it was more interesting than the story in my opinion or it could Just be that I enjoy anything with Johnny Deep in it. “The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tendered kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.

There was the honest cook robin, the favorite game of stripling sportsmen, with TTS loud querulous note; and the twittering blackbirds flying in sable clouds; and the golden-winged woodpecker with his crimson crest, his broad black gorger, and splendid plumage; and the cedar bird, with its red-tip wings and yellow-tip tail and its little monitor cap of feathers; and the blue Jay, that nosy coxcomb, in his gay light blue coat and white underclothes, screaming and chattering, nodding and bobbing and bowing, and pretending to be on good terms with every songster of the grove. This was a quote from the book wrote by Washington as his language is strong. All in the end I really enjoyed hearing the story and watching it come together on the movie screen as well as it did in my head. The story is mystical and always breath taking with the words used to describe the characters and settings. The movie make me understand more of what was happening in the story rather than guessing from what I had read in the passage. Although they were two different versions I enjoyed the movie more the
