* ''Film/DonnieDarko'' itself. One of the reasons it has become a cult LoveItOrHateIt film is that it is not self-contained at all. Nothing about the Manipulated Dead or Tangent Universe is ever explicitly (or implicitly!) stated, requiring you to read the script-book or check out the director's commentary at length to have any hope of getting the plot.

* ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'':
** The name of the planet most of the movie is set in is Lythion, but you'd only know that by reading the original comics or a summary of the movie (in-movie it's only known as planet 16).
** Some of the background characters do have proper names, but you'd need to read a character sheet to know them. Some of these characters (notably Captain Sun) had larger roles in the comics, but in the movie most of what they did of importance in the comics is distributed between Durand Durand and Dildano.

* Probably one of the most controversial parts of ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' was the RaceLift given to [[spoiler: Khan, who was an Indian Sikh in the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries original series]], but was played by a [[BenedictCumberbatch white Englishman]] in the movie]]. The comic book mini-series [[spoiler: Star Trek: Khan]] explains this by revealing that [[spoiler: Khan still was an Indian Sikh]], but received MagicPlasticSurgery that made him [[BlackLikeMe appear white in order to hide his identity]].

** The book and movie complement each other. The book explains the more confusing parts of the movie including the starchild and the final "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite" sequence which the movie conveyed through spectacular imagery. The reason for this was that the book was written as the same time as the film.
