    ...Tiger ...

    Hello friends! I came across a movie entitled:"The tiger and the Snow"...my question is: What would be the difference if the title were: "Tiger and Snow"...Would that little change modify the idea? Thanks.

    I doubt it.

    It's a matter of style rather than meaning.

    Re: ...Tiger ...

    This question actually reminds me of a line in the movie "Kungfu Panda" in which the Panda said :"I'm not a big fat panda, I'm the big fat panda." I'm not sure what he meant when he said that. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    Re: ...Tiger ...

    I haven't seen that movie, but it seems he's saying that is the only big, fat panda that matters, the only one of real importance.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That was one of the final scenes of the movie in which the Cheetah was beaten by the Panda, the movie's hero. Frustrated, the Cheetah said: "You can't beat me! You're just a big fat panda.", at which the Panda retorted with the line I quoted.
