LA 9 to Compare two films: Apples to Apples

I’d like some help considering what pair of films we ought to study in LA 9. Keeping in mind our course focus questions, what pair of films should we study in class?

  1. Why We Fight vs. The Atomic Cafe
  2. Artificial Intelligence: AI vs. I, Robot
  3. Hoosiers vs. Rudy
  4. Godzilla vs. King Kong
  5. Close Encounters of the Third Kind vs. Signs
  6. The Princess Bride vs. Dragon Heart
  7. Arachnophobia vs. Misery
  8. The Outsiders vs. Hairspray
  9. The Iron Giant vs. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Please leave a comment with a critical reason for your preference of films.

Extend your discussion of image, symbol, and archetype. Consider: Principal Images of Heaven and Hell and Principal Images of Innocence and Experience.
