The Movie Experience

...The Movie Experience Word Count: 601 Movies should be treated as a luxury commodity, meant to invoke feelings and thoughts that otherwise would have been left dormant and untouched. From comedies that bring you joy to sci-fi thrillers that keep you up at night, movies obtain their value by how successful they can engage their audience. While much of this is dependent upon the movie itself, where you experience it can play a vital role in your idea of its success. Comfort and affordability underscore the movie-at-home scenario, but these things do little to enhance the primary purpose of the movie. Where that sense of feeling and connection to the movie are important to the person watching it, the movie theater will always offer the most superior experience. A substantial difference between watching a movie at home and in the theater is the environment itself. When you're at home, you're surrounded by familiarity and distraction. You give yourself permission to be interrupted by normal day-to-day activities, such as the dog or your cellphone. In the theater, you don't allow yourself such freedoms. Though you're also provided more control over your environment when you're at home, there is something captivating about being in the movie theater. It is difficult to reproduce the audiovisual characteristics of a theater. Movie theaters, by definition, place all of their emphasis on the movie experience as a whole, and thus do well to exemplify the movie with excellent......

...Metaphor for Telling It has been countless years since I have watched a movie about Native Americans, and even longer since I have witnessed a decent one. Most films on the subject of the Native American people are often set in the past and are habitually on the subject of brave Indian warriors. I had never viewed a Native American motion picture filmed in a present day setting, dealing with contemporary issues until I watched Smoke Signals. In the movie Smoke Signals, co-producer and scriptwriter Sherman Alexie uses unexpected humor, numerous significant flashbacks, and modernized Native American storytelling traditions to best narrate his story and the historical plight of Native Americans. First of all, Alexie employs wit by mocking stereotypical reservation life, the frequently biased film industry, and even his own people, the Native Americans. From the opening scene as tribal meteorologist and traffic reporter Lester Falls Apart covers his seemingly uneventful daily traffic report, as he has for the last twenty-six years, from the rooftop of his broken down KREZ van, we are introduced to the odd and amusing way of life on the “rez.” In another scene, Victor and Thomas are embarking on their solemn journey and are offered a ride by Thelma and Lucy driving down the road in reverse; again, it is suggested that they exist in a somewhat backwards nation. In addition, Alexie is quick to taunt the movie industry by belittling white cowboy heroes; he even goes so far......

...away as free men. I like this movie because of the great acting performed by the main actors and the cars. 2 fast 2 furious has great acting. Paul Walker and Tyree Gibson do an excellent job playing the parts of Brian O’ Connell and Roman Pearce. Brian, a former cop, plays a good role as an undercover cop. Roman on the other hand, plays the role of a thug. He is tattooed and dresses with baggy clothes. He uses a lot of slang and likes to use the word “bruh” a lot, which is a slang term for brother. He is a thug because he had to spend three years in jail. He blaims Brian for that and when he first sees him in the movie he punches him in the face out of anger and they begin to fight. As the movie goes on, the hate that he has for Brian wares off, and they begin to become close friends as they were when they were younger. Roman also steals. He stole Verones cigar cutter, but got caught for it. The two actors display different personalities within the movie. Brian is more of the serious one who wants to do everything correctly, while Roman is the funny one who likes to joke around and have a good time, but likes to get the job done. They both display great team work within the movie. When they get their first objective to get a package out of Verone’s car, together they take over the streets and drive crazily. They get the package and return it to Verone and earn themselves a job. They both have each others back no matter what. At the end of the movie, when Brian almost gets......

...be a major topic in life, coming-of-age will be as well. For centuries, teens have been misunderstood by their families. They don't understand our thought process or why we even thought that way in the first place. That's when great writers and great producers came together to make films surrounding that. The coming-of-age films were most popular in the 80s--coincidentally while the fashion was also very out there and misunderstood. Personally, a movie that stood out the most in the Generation X era, was American Pie. Though it was very comedic, it's very relatable. The film focused on a group of teenage boys attempting to lose their innocence, but also shows the main character's parents constantly trying to "fix" him. As a viewer, you are immediately on the main character's side. Throughout the movie, his father is always trying to piece in on his life. The father feels that he knows exactly what the teen is experiencing because of him unexpectedly walking in on an unusual sexual act the teen was committing. Throughout the movie, he is giving him tips on sex and tries to "rectify" his "situation," when nothing the father is offering is necessary. The main character was trying to have actual sex and since he had a hard time doing so, at times, he'd use inanimate objects in replace of an actual human being. As teens "came of age," based off of previous experience, parents understood that that was the time that they should have "the talk." Realistically, that represented......

Unfortunately, the movie was released in theatres during the summer when I was visiting Hong Kong and by the time I got back, it wasn’t in theatres anymore so I had to wait for the movie to be released on DVD. The movie is directed by Peter Berg and stars Will Smith and Charlize Theron. The movie takes place in modern day Los Angeles and revolves around an alcoholic superhero named Hancock that doesn’t care about his appearance and seen as a homeless, played by Will Smith. Unfortunately, due to his alcoholic problems, when he is saving people and taking out criminals, he causes a lot of property damage and puts other civilians in danger, which makes the citizens of Los Angeles somewhat despise him. The beginning of the movie follows Hancock in his adventures around Los Angeles bringing criminals to justice while causing a lot of destruction along the way.

The answer lays in a combination of many variables that often can be difficult to achieve or change. Many influencing factors go into making a movie theater chain that of a success. It is imperative as a movie theater manager to take into consideration all factors of management and marketing in order to get an answer to the question everyone wants to know. When considering major business chains, such as that of a movie theater, many external environment factors play a key role in determining the success of a chain. It is imperative to consider aspects including demographic, geographic, income, and more in order to determine the organizations success and performance. The ability to know how many people live within proximity to a movie theater location, ages of people within that radius, average income of the areas’ population are wise to take into consideration for the movie theater chain to thrive. Also, it would be of value to know how many other theater chains are within the geographical area. Incorporating specials, such as free popcorn on a specific night and discounted rates for children and seniors are strategies to set your movie chain apart from others and make your company more appealing. The world we live in today is largely based on what is trending. Movie managers are no exception of people...
