Probably not - that movie still reached the highest income compared to other movies that are also playing currently on cinemas. And what do you think the cause of that? It is because of people now have becoming so attached to the Media, movies and television especially, to identify themselves with. Neal Gabler once wrote, “Whatever else American films do, the most popular ones are almost always about wish fulfillment, and the great stars are the ones with whom viewers can identify and through whom they can transcend themselves. They empower the audience.” It is a fact then that the Media tries to portray and characterize the perfect characters in the society through movie screens.
While researching film directing, a lot of interesting information about directors who became famous or wealthy off of their short films, movies and commercials. These directors formally based their films off of ideas they would think people would like to watch over and over again. The most famous directors come from people with imagination that can picture what is happening in the movie before it happens. Famous directors can imagine what actors or actresses would play that part in the movie which leads back to their imagination. A quote from Quentin Tarantino “If a million people see my movie, I hope they see a million different movies”.
“The Hollywood industry is one of the most powerful and influential enterprises in the world, its visual voice heard around the globe” (Lowson). “The Hollywood entertainment industry has become increasingly influential so that society now looks towards them to develop their standards, teach values, and provide morals” (Kelly). People have begun to “copycat” what they see any celebrity do on national television. Society takes personally the actions of what their idols do. There are plenty of good morally right entertainment in the world but there is also plenty of morally wrong entertainment, people will follow what they here almost precisely to the word.
Hollywood has also lobbied the US very effectively over decades to ensure cultural exports are classed as just another form of trade in international agreements, and to help it gain control over distribution networks abroad. From the view of entertainment, most of the people would admire and wish to step into Hollywood industry ad they think they would be famous after and increase their position world-wide. If they got a chance to participate in one of the Hollywood movie, they will get high pay and everyone knows them after. It provides people with hope and changes their life, it is one way of international connections without the nationality issue.
As most Hollywood films are produced on large budgets, aspects of the film become so realistic it ... ... middle of paper ... ... are watching and remember it is being filtered to entertain and make money. Unfortunately this is not the reality we live in and the consequence of such actions is having an effect on certain historical truths. However not only is the accuracy of events being lost through the general publics laziness, but also because it reshapes the memories of veterans who come to remember the visual images of movies rather then the actual event. The accuracy of films when telling the history of an event is often times diminished in favor of telling a story which will entertain. The use of films as pedagogical tools has many benefits, however viewers must be aware additional research is needed to gain a full understanding of the event.
