I make videos comparing scenes from 2 movies. I use scenes (it's always more than one movie) or scene in the title?

    A noun that is used attributively doesn't take a plural form. – user178049 May 2 '17 at 6:49
  • If you use the plural, you have to say, "Scenes' Comparison." But note that as native speakers, we would say, "Scene Comparison" for the reason user178049 mentioned. – Teacher KSHuang May 2 '17 at 8:22

You should probably use "scene comparisons" in the title. It is partially due to the fact that generally though we compare a multitude of things, at a time we're looking at one specific scene in, say, movie A with a similar/contrasting scene in movie B.

It has a resemblance with "profit comparisons". Although the profits are of more than one type (net profit, gross profit, operating profit, etc.), the singular form "profit" is more commonly used.
