Are you a film buff? No, I’m not referring to Harold Lloyd’s comedy Movie Crazy from 1932, in which a young man with little to no acting talent tries his hardest to get a role in a film. I mean, are you just crazy about movies? I must admit that I love movies very much. So, raise your hands if you think too much about movies. Yes, that includes almost everyone. Why do we obsess over movies? Why is our society obsessed with movies? Hey, what exactly are films?
Ideas and/or stories are conveyed to an audience through sound and a seamless sequence of images in movies. Greetings from Google Search.
How well-known are movies? Well, just on Google’s search engine, the keyword “movies” has been searched for over 1.1 billion times. Additionally, more than 127 million searches have been conducted using the term “movie trailers.” Many people now enjoy using the internet to watch movie trailers. My husband, I know, is one of them. He enjoys watching trailers for his movies.
For the entire year of 2009, the box office generated a staggering 29.2 billion dollars worldwide. Worldwide, people watch and make movies. The addition of subtitles has eliminated the language gap. We can now all enjoy the universal movie experience together. Movies are made for everyone, young and old, and they are universal. why the majority of Disney or children’s movie screenings allow you to see generations. No matter what age you are, there is something for everyone.
We appreciate movies and the actors who appear in them. We bring them into our homes through shows like ET, ET Canada, Access Hollywood, and TMZ, among others, that are devoted to celebrities. We sneak the most recent celebrity gossip from supermarket tabloids like The National Enquirer and Star into our shopping carts when no one is looking.
Similar to Superbowl parties, we hold Oscar parties and even wager on or, at the very least, declare our opinions regarding who will win the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, MTV Awards, etc. wird sein. Then there are the classic television shows like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” which we watched religiously and oohed and aahed over like fine wine. Between March 1984 and September 1995, the show ran for more than ten years. What a sprint! What an idea! We actually got to go along and swoon over the extravagant lifestyles, vacation spots, and homes of celebrities. You can now watch shows like “Cribs” on MTV and “The Fabulous Life of….” on VH1 if you prefer to stay at home. If you want to watch a movie, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. Movies can literally be viewed on specialty movie channels like Thrill, The Movie Network, HBO, Movie Central, Showtime, Turner Classic Movies, and others through the regular cable on your television. And that’s after you’ve gone through the TV movies of the week, put movies on your PVR, and taken your kids to the video store to rent one of the new movies this week. Additionally, you can purchase movies online through eBay or Amazon as well as from the neighborhood video store.
How do we acquire our coveted golden tickets to these magnificent palaces? We use our air miles or reward points to turn cash into movie tickets, and we buy cereal boxes and cut out cardboard vouchers. We participate in contests in the hope of being selected to attend pre-screenings of our favorite films prior to their release. We also walk red carpets all over the world and watch our favorite daytime and nighttime shows, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman, Oprah, and Regis & Kelly, for celebrity interviews.
The cinematic experience is unrivaled. Nothing. We get ready for our tickets, buy our favorite snacks, and pick up the most recent issue of Famous or Tribute to read casually before the movie (while we eat real buttered popcorn or a bag of liquorice). The lights dim, the screen gets bigger, and both the picture and the sound come at the same time. While watching the annoying commercials, we anticipate the movie previews, and then they appear. Those massive and stunning upcoming attractions in all their splendor. We give our companions seated next to us thumbs up or whisper “nay” or “yea” in anticipation of the upcoming movie outing. The guys will then, if we’re lucky, hear the THX sound effect bellow as it roars around the theater. Hey, guys, you can listen to it on YouTube or get a free mp3 or ringtone of it. The wait is over then. Whoopee! And now the fun begins… Once more, why are we so obsessed with movies? Could it be due to the low cost of movies; a low-cost date; or a low-cost family excursion. Is it that the Imax or 3-D experience can further enhance the experience? Or does it go any further? a chance to temporarily escape the real world. Emotions like excitement, laughter, terror, sadness, inspiration, faith, love, and so on are all evoked by movies. You might be following a family through a difficult time, solving a mystery, or embarking on an unpredictable journey. Movies transport us; wherever we choose. As we have discovered, the theater itself is an experience in and of itself. The lights, sound, and feel, as well as the large screen, comfortable, oversized fabric chairs, and convenient cup holders. The snack stand had popcorn and snacks, too. The experience of watching a movie really engages every sense. What motion pictures have blended you genuinely of late?
You can pick and choose what you want to see and feel at the movies. To be content I’ll go see a cheerful satire. I’ll see a horror or thriller if I want to be thrilled. And if I want to keep my young nieces and nephews occupied, I’ll go see the most recent animated film, etc. The remaining genres that complete the movie experience include: Drama, epics/historical, musicals/dance, science fiction, war, documentary, westerns, biopics, chick flicks, detective and mystery, disaster, fantasy, film noir, guy films, melodramas/weepers, road films, romance, sports, supernatural, etc.
People get together through movies. You can talk about them at your 9-to-5 workplace watering hole, with your Facebook friends, or in forums. We can discuss our absolute favorites and the worst films we’ve seen. We can ask each other trivia questions about songs, quotes, and movies. We can look up movie ratings, read or write movie reviews, and buy movie books. We can even subscribe to the most recent Hollywood gossip via email or browse blogs like Movie Crazy by Leonard Maltin online.
Other than the overall experience of entertainment, are there any other advantages to watching movies? In fact, there is. Numerous expert specialists are utilizing films to assist with peopling in emergency. Movies are used in a therapeutic movement, as you might have guessed. Cinema Therapy is the name of it. Cinema therapy is used because it is easy to find (almost every city has a movie theater) and everyone knows what most movies are about. Additionally, it strengthens the client-therapist rapport. Who wouldn’t like to talk about movies?
Other advantages include the ability to let go of emotions. For example, when we laugh during a comedy, we let go of stress, tension, or pain. A movie that makes us cry lets out emotions that have been bottled up or blocked. What about motion pictures that touch on connections or nurturing. These observations and/or lessons can help us get closer to people, make us think about our current relationships and situations, or make us realize that we still have work to do.
Our desire or longing to actually be in a movie and/or meet a movie star is the final thing that cements our movie-crazy mentality. All things considered, this simply in- – – you can do both. Have you heard the term television or film extra? On the off chance that you need a better than 10,000 foot perspective of making of a film and to experience a celebrity or two sign-up to be an extra. You’ll be fed, paid, and on set, where you might even meet your favorite movie star.
