response 3 3

Response 3 is a compare/contrast paper between two actors in different times. Students will watch one of the movies from the list below (years 1980 to now). After watching the actor in the more recent films listed below, the student will then choose an actor/film from an older film provided in the Film Response # 1 or 2 lists–years 1920 to 1979 (that you did not write about before) and watch that film. The objective is to compose a paper comparing and contrasting the two actor’s acting style, and believability. You can do some brief cited research on the actors training if you would like but it is not necessary. The important thing is to focus on what similarities or differences you see in each actor by watching each film. Did you believe or prefer one actor to the other? Again, this is a comparison of the actors not the characters they portray and it is important we see you own reaction in the paper. Minimum word requirement is 600 to 750 words, but feel free to expand if needed. Research is not necessary but if you do include please cite properly!
