Movie

...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......

Outsourced, the Movie

...Outsourced, the Movie Intercultural Communication at its Best Outsourced is an excellent film to introduce its audience to Indian culture by showing certain customs and behaviors in the country. As Bisoux (2009) says the film’s realistic, documentary like portrayal provides the audience a window into a global environment such as: cross-culture conflict, shock and adjustment. From the moment Todd Anderson arrives in India, the audience lives through the new experiences that he confronts. The film’s visual detail and soundtrack featuring Indian style music combine to transport the audience into the Indian culture. Once in India, Todd faces a chaotic transportation system, having to jump onto a crowded moving train, and later chasing after his suitcase which is thrown into a small auto-rickshaw, or as Todd calls it, “one of those taxi go-cart thingies.” He immediately observes different customs, beginning with a man urinating by the side of the road and continuing to the street boy who pesters him and later snatches his cell phone. At the small, above-ground bunker-like building that has been built to house the new call center where Todd will work, a cow appears in one of the offices in one scene where Todd stands surprised, while his Indian counterpart, Purohit ‘Puro’ N. Virajnarianan, remains unfazed by the cow’s presence. In the film, Todd experiences extreme mental and physical symptoms due to culture shock. Culture shock is defined as a “sense of confusion,......

The Movie Industry

...What are You Looking At? Oh, those were the days. Remember high school? Oh, high school. A world without subject-by-numbers, p-sets, all-nighters, or worries. There wasn't much of anything to do, period. The most exciting thing that could happen to you in high school was probably go to a keg party-er, did I say keg? You know I meant cake, and going to the big premiere of "Spider-man." Friday night at the movies with your buds was a sure-fire way to pass two or three hours of your endless free time. What else did you have to do? Fill out the MIT application? Most teenagers, myself included, probably look at movies as entertainment, rather than as art, and most directors will confirm this. The movie industry has capitalized on this "entertainment" view of movies. More than ever, the movies industry is dominated by blockbusters and, to many's dismay, sequels to previous blockbusters. According to the website of the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA), from 1999 to 2002, the average theatrical cost of an MPAA film rose over 80%. Over this 3-year period, a whopping 25 out of the top 50 highest grossing movies in the American film history were produced, all of which made over 200 million dollars. Among these blockbusters were "Spider-man," "Finding Nemo," and "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace." We all know why "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" exploded at the box office. But why did the other two gross over $340 million each? Because they were......

In addition, fonts used in this posters are Litos Pro with different sizes for the movie title, director’s name and tagline. Moreover, colours use for all the fonts are mostly black and white. The reason of choosing Litos Pro as the font is because the simplicity of the design and a generic stand-in whenever a "primitive" feel is desired. Lithos is inspired by the unadorned, geometric letterforms of the engravings found on Ancient Greek public buildings. However, for the colours of the fonts, black and white are used indicate of living in reality there are always a good......

Movie Review

...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......

...It doesn’t take intense or in depth analysis for one to conclude that the movie industry as a whole is heading on a negative path. This negative growth trend is heavily influenced by a number of contributing factors which individually impact the various components of the movie industry value chain but more specifically the exhibitors. Throughout this paper I will be focusing on improving the future strategic plans of the exhibitors while assessing their contribution to this decline and what they and their counterparts could do in order to maximize future revenues and profitability. There are several external factors contributing to the slowdown of this giant industry (technology being the biggest one),we will try to address the key factors throughout this paper. Let us start with the production studios, which in my opinion are the dominant party in this relationship and therefore will not be suffering the most impact in the next decade. The exhibitors on the other hand will be subjected to the most detrimental recession due to their shrinking targeted demographics and the lack of assistance from their suppliers (the studios). Starting with the root of this problem, the shrinking market, which can be solved by realigning this industry’s business model in order to target a wider frame of the population coupled with a more mutually beneficial alliance between the studios and the exhibitors since currently the boat is mainly being steered by the studios. This could begin by......

...Movie Promotion and Advertising Jessieca Montgomery COM/486 Mary Fowler October 8, 2013 The purpose of the report is to provide a plan to advertise and promote, “Candy Cone Lane,” an animated children’s film scheduled for release during the summer of 2014. This proposal will include an explanation on how marketing communications will be integrated, factors that might influence message’s effect, type of advertising appeal, message strategies and executional framework and three strategies to consider that will differentiate the movie from others.

When utilizing the various outlets for targeting the audience who may be interested in the movie, it is necessary to consider the many locations that may be available to deliver the message created for their consumption and consideration. For advertising at fast food restaurants, the monitors inside the locations or nearby can run a loop of the trailer for the movie for consistent amount of time.

...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......

Also, Susan in the movie are unable to manage pressure and bad times in her life, she finally resorts suicide in order to escape from the reality. The leave of Moon’s parent, the unconsciousness of Susan’s teacher and a driver for her death, connotatively show the reaction of adult on the youth problem, they choose dodging rather than facing up to it.

Movie Review

...Hancock Being a movie fanatic, life is measured by when the next big movie release is going to be. One of the movies I have been looking forward to for a while was Hancock. 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 movie then goes to another main character; a public relations manager played named Ray Embrey who just unsuccessfully tried to pitch a new charity logo to some corporate executives and is on his way home when he gets stuck on some train tracks while a train is coming. Hancock then comes just in time to save him, but derails the train in the process. The people around the scene start to boo him, but Ray thanks him for saving his life and......

Movie Manager

...MGMT 304 8/30/2015 Movie Managers The million dollar question is what will get customers into movie theaters? Unfortunately there is no one or simple answer. 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...
