Films have become one of the most influential factors in modern society. From starting new trends to educating ordinary people, films are undoubtedly making an impression on the public. Since the discovery of the very first feature film in the 1890s, films have become a visual documentation of events of human evolution. Talk about the films produced for entertainment purposes, here is a quote from the film critic Roger Ebert of the Pulitzer Prize winner:
"We live in a box of time and time. Movies are windows in its walls. They allow us to get into other minds, not just to identify ourselves with the characters, but by seeing the world as another person sees it."
Roger once said that art is the closest we could come to understanding how a stranger feels and films as an amalgum of sound and visual art form, making a very complex and sophisticated art form. There is an undeniable effect that films have in our thought process. When we leave a theater after watching a movie, we leave the definitive type of thoughts depending on which movie we were watching. With our responsibility in daily life, we jump through myriads of social and emotional aspects that keep us humane. We live in a world with so many colors and variations of human aspects but we do not recognize and enjoy it while we are busy with our commitments. And that's where movies are a sweet reminder of what we are and what we have. Let's take "Forrest Gump" for example, which depicts a guy's innocence, with the spirit of doing something of himself despite all the flaws. Or the newer "Happythankyoumoreplease", which shows characters who are no different from those in our neighborhood. The characters in the wheel world are no different from those in our real world and the challenges they face are just a version of those we face. And movies help us understand life through different perspectives.
Let's take modern historical period films and old classics, they are a depiction of how things were in the past days. Like ordinary people, they tend to be a reminder of our heritage, a source of reminder and nostalgia. There are also movies like "Blade Runner" that give us a look at how things can be in the future, and there are ones that make us laugh and have a good time. Educate us, tickle our funny bones to warn us of future events that may fall on us, movies have an undeniable influence on our thoughts and actions.
It's a little bad with everything a little good
Film as technology has grown from a fast-paced collection of images to a complicated industry. With the ever-growing popularity of technology, movies have now become an integral part of our daily lives. Be it in a friendly chat between friends or the daily news broadcast, movies are one of the topics in the discussion. Primary is a form of entertainment, movies as a whole are also listed as an informal source of education. Many people tend to learn from movies more than any other formal source, although it may seem like an exaggeration. In many underdeveloped countries, films and television series are used as a means of educating the population for social reform and for a comprehensive change. There is no denying a wide variety of films, but it can have a very bad effect, because not all films have the same human values.
Films that fall under the genres such as historical drama, historical war films and biopics are often criticized for having taken liberty with the historical facts. They are accused of bending history to dramatize events and make interesting films. One of such films is "Pearl Harbor", which was released under a lot of criticism. With film makers taking such liberty with the historical subjects, it is both disrespectful and unforgivable. Because of such films, credible audiences believe that a fiction is fact, which is not good. On the other hand, there are films that fall under the action and horror genres that are criticized for violent content. Directors like Quentin Tarantino in Hollywood and Anurag Kashyap in Bollywood have their respective reasons and logical explanations for such content. Despite their reasonable explanations, it does not deny that exposure to violence can cause personality disorders in children and other susceptible demographics. There are appropriate processes for identifying and assigning categories that a movie goes through before it is released to reduce such negative effects. But their presence is just as good as the implementation.
Movies are stupid
"The point is not to avoid all stupid movies, but to avoid being a stupid moviegoer, it's a difficult task to distinguish the German films from the bad films ..." -Roger Ebert
Often, films are referred to as stupid waste of time. The notion is not wrong on its own, but we must remember that there are literally millions of films representing a genre and there are many genres. Although not all of them deserve our attention but not all deserve our indifference. Therefore, it is our responsibility to choose the film that would be worth the time. In fact, the choice of films differs for each individual. And each film genre is targeted at a specific audience.
Each artwork is subject to its own perception and interpretation, films are no different. Like any art, every movie will surely have its point of view and agenda. Movies are the most expressive of all forms of art as such, they can cover a huge demographic without the bias of color, age or region. This favors filmmakers with the power to impress the huge receptive population with their ideas. However, it is up to the viewer to choose the right movie.
Connects to a movie
A film without a definite direction becomes a disaster, as it is usually the director who decides a certain tone in the film subject. With the right coordination with his colleagues, the director continues to create a masterpiece that resonates with our lives and ways of thinking. This is when we would be completely sucked into another world. And that's the real satisfaction of watching a movie. Otherwise it would be a stupid waste of time.
But besides the nuances of the production of a movie, there are many factors that affect its connection with the audience. One such case is "The Room" which was released in 2003 as an independent film. The film was written, produced and directed by Tommy Wiseau, who also acted in the film. The film was slaughtered entirely by the critics while it made a good deal. There are also DC films such as "Suicide Squad" and "Justice League" which, despite the critical base, continue to raise big money. The reason it is the subject but poorly executed is dear to the fans of DC series.
Movies have now become an integral part of human life. It could very well be a form of social activity, where we would all get together for a good time. There is also one of the most important influences as one of the largest industries, it has a large number of manpower. Although a topic with socioeconomic influence is worthy of another article, it does not deny that movies have become one of the social activities. So we can try to divide a movie into good and bad but as a form of art, a movie is just that, an art.
