In the film Platoon and A Trip to the Moon the use of narrative and mise-en-scene show how the films are similar and different and also how film technology evolved between 1902 and 1986. A Trip to the Moon is different in the mise-en-scene in that it is black and white while Platoon is in color. Also, the acting in A Trip to the Moon isn't really necessary since it is a quiet film and it makes it very hard to even understand what the theme or idea of the narrative of the film is trying to portray. Platoon had great acting in that it is one of the main things that sold the film; it truly made me feel like I was part of the movie and how the characters felt in it. The narrative of Platoon had meaning, while A Trip to the Moon really didn't make any sense because I didn't really know what was going on. The films are similar in that the narratives are both reenactments of events that took place in the past, such as the Vietnam War and the first trip to the Moon. The film technology has changed a lot since 1902. A Trip to the Moon's scenes transitioned from dissolving into one scene to the other, while Platoon has different shots and angles and scenes don't dissolve into one another. Platoon's emotions throughout the movie are scene through the filming.
