In the original Frankenstein the monster is sensitive and intelligent being but due to a sense of abandonment becomes biter and murderous. Many adaptations strip away his human qualities and made him appear as a terrifying killing machine such as the 1931 movie “Frankenstein” directed by James Whale. The first film adaptation was brought to the silver screen in 1910, however the most well known image of the monster from the 1931 film adaptation. Boris Karloff played the monster and his version has forever been the image we now know today. Multiple sequels and adaptations were made and many parodies such as “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, “Bride of Frankenstein”, and “Kyofu Densetsu: Furankenshutain (The Monster of Frankenstein).” Even people who have never seen or read an adaptation of Frankenstein would still likely share the general assumption of who Frankenstein is and what he looks like.
The “Green movement” at the time was a rebellion against any scientific advancement which would have endangered the future of the environment or destroy it further than it had already been. The didactic style of blade runner explores this fear further; this is seen through the use of artificial eyes. This suggests the false wisdom of humanity. Whilst Shelly’s novel indicates a fear of the future, it still consisted of nature. However, Blade runner has very limited amounts of nature and shows a industrialized and scientifically advanced society thus the distinctive differences between Frankenstein and blade runner reveal more about the connections between them.
Frankenstein Frankenstein and the Monster share no common characteristics and live completely separate lives. Many believe that parents and children will always share common characteristics because of the simple reason that they are related, but this is not always a true theory. In the case that is presented in Frankenstein, because of the fact that victor left his monster , the monster cannot learn from Victor or vice versa, therefore they cannot become like each other and share common characteristics. There is a lot of information that leads to the belief that Frankenstein is different than the creature, but many also make the mistake that he is more alike. Although Frankenstein created the creature, he and the creature separated right from the monsters creation and they did not encounter each other again and the creature had developed different characteristics and habits of his own.
He went on a tour with Clerval until he felt he was ready to begin making the female monster. Victor no longer had the same intense feeling he had when making the first fiend. This time, he was making it thinking about the fact that the monster told him “Oh! my creator, make me happy; let me feel gratitude towards you for one benefit (Page 99)!” Victor could do nothing but think if he brought this “creature” to life he would have to take care of it as a father would a child, but this was not the case. I guess looks do play a big role in any society.
Frankenstein felt so strongly against it that he stopped the creating and damned himself. As stated earlier in the essay, genetic modification benefits a sole individual that could bring harm to newborn children through the birth cycle. With Frankenstein’s resolution against the creation of the second monster, I think it is safe to assume that Frankenstein would be against genetic modification as well. The creature on the other hand, is a completely different
Even though the movie is based on the story of Beowulf, The Thirteenth Warrior still leaves a few events out and adds some occurrences. The most important is the lack of mythological/religious creatures attacking. In the cinematic adventure, multiple “not-so-evolved” people were attacking the Danes. Grendel, instead of being the demon in the poem, was the chief of the tribe in the movie. It also out-casted the entire dragon slaying sequence.
When she had doubt about Martin she spoke to the priest, her sisters and also Martin’s uncle, but it wasn’t acted upon. Even though she had doubt she still lived with him because she was afraid of the consequences of her admitting that she has accepted a stranger into her home and bed. During the trial when she spoke up about knowing the man she was with wasn’t Martin she did the right thing and come up front with it. Even though she was being just she was the one that was greatly affected by it because the man which was treating her well was executed and the man she was married
In the novel Frankenstein we see Victor’s technological ambition turn into repulsion as the creation of the monster help him realize the magnitude of his mistakes. “The beauty of my dream vanished, breathless horror and disgust filled my heart”, this shows that Victor was blinded by his ambition and by giving up morality and using technology for his own selfish needs he was not able to foresee the inevitable horrid consequences. On the other hand in Blade Runner the ethical issues of science and technologies are not only portrayed through the creation of the replicants but also by the destruction of nature and its environments. During the beginning of the movie a camera shot from above shows a dark, industrialized city filled with fiery explosions while ominous music is played in the background, the image of the city and non-dijectic sounds portray and emphasise how society has lost sight of what really matters and no longer prioritize

A part where the movie and book differs is the types of body parts Victor Frankenstein comprises the monsters body with. In the book, Frankenstein believed he put together a beautiful body by providing yellow skin which would cover the workings of the muscles and arteries, long flowing black lustrous hair, and pearly white teeth. What Victor Frankenstein visualized as a beautiful creation turned out to be the complete opposite mental image of his creation. In today’s society, plastic surgery plays in a similar role in what Victor Frankenstein did in his goal of creating life. Some people have gone the lengths for physical alteration or to achieve the perfect body image via plastic surgery.
