The first difference is the climaxes are different in old Christmas and the later Christmas movies. For example, the climaxes in the former version are usually the big tragedies of the family reunion on Christmas, such as big fighting between family members or destroying houses, whereas the climaxes of the later Christmas movies are more focusing on relationships between couples and two successive generations. As the context mentioned above, the disparity of the difference is due to the family composition patterns now are very different from before. As a result, the difference reflected in the content of the Christmas movies. Another difference is both the former and the later version usually have happy endings; however, the later version has more surprising endings than old Christmas movies.
The book Fahrenheit 451 was turned into a movie which included many similarities and differences from the book. The biggest difference was Clarisse in general because she was a teacher instead of a student, she never died when it was said she did, and her overall character was a little off due to these simple changes. There was also no war in the movie, which made it so that there was no bombing at the end so the city wasn’t destroyed. Faber also wasn’t in the movie, although he was a major character in the book because of his influence over Montag. While there were many differences there were also similarities, but they were mostly small details.
Shawshank Compare and Contrast Essay In 1994, director Frank Darabont released the film adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling 1982 novella, “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”. Both mediums were masterfully crafted to tell the story of Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding’s time in prison and the immense impact that his friend and fellow prison inmate Andy Dufresne had on his life. Each medium excellently captured and portrayed the main themes, one of which being the injustice and hypocrisy of the prison system. While they both succeeded at doing so, they came to this, each in a different fashion. These separate entities used different techniques of writing and film and character portrayal to capture the key themes in this story.

The two movies, “Guess Who's Coming to Dinner” and “Selma” are outstanding in their own perspective. The movie “Guess Who's Coming to Dinner” was based on a woman, Joanna Drayton, an extroverted woman and a man, John Prentice, a black doctor become engaged in a time period, 1960s, where civil right movement was at peak and racial equality was a national topic with different personal views and ideas about the situation. On the other hand, “Selma” depicts the movement to secure equal voting rights by Martin Luther King Jr. through his march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965.

In common terms, the movies that are released in the past decade has been more concentrated toward digital processing and editing however the movie made in 1960s had seldom reach to digital editing and processing.
Upon viewing Andrei Tarkovsky’s The Sacrifice, I was able to draw comparisons between the beginning and endings of both films. The openings of the films though different, are similar in that they both reveal nature and landscapes. The purpose here seems to be to provide a sense of isolation. They also seem to both be shot in the same wide-panorama style lens. Although the plots themselves are different.
There are many differences and similarities between the film The Inevitable Defeat of Pete and the memoir A Long Way Gone. The first and most obvious is that the movie is fiction and the memoir is not. The memoir focuses on Ishmael Beah’s personal experience and the movie is a fictional story someone came up with.

The two films are quite different because of their socio-cultural contexts, the studio systems of production and the ideas of artistic creativity. In this essay I will discuss the cultural contexts of production and reception between these two films. Infernal Affairs and it’s American remake The departed set several records in both Hong Kong cinema and Hollywood. While “Infernal Affairs won all major film awards in Hong Kong in the year of it’s release and is recognised as the film that brought Hong Kong commercial cinema back to it’s feet after almost a decade of declination”, The Departed earned auteur director Martin Scorsese his first Oscar award for Best Director in 2007 and remains to be Scorsese’s highest grossing film domestically.
A Contrast of American and Italian Comedy Films Ari Mont IS 220 - Prof. Bini There is no prototypical film from any part of the world, let alone ones with such illustrious histories as the United States and Italy. Yet, because filmmaking is an art that is so dependent on borrowing cinematographic and writing styles from those nearby, it is inevitable that some patterns will emerge. This essay will take a look at two films from the same time and the same genre, one American and one Italian, to discover where the differences are and where similarities exist. Despite both being comedy films that premiered two years apart, Billy Wilder’s Avanti! and Franco Brusati’s Pane e Cioccolata exhibit some very different stylistic and writing
