Relation Between the Industry and Movie Reviews

The films that are being released every year indicates the changing trends in the movie industry, especially as these trends are related to what a movie review tells us.

Popular trends include sequels, movies that continue the story for ever. Films released recently do not generally make for good sequels. Sequels are even made of films that were released long ago. Website content writing for such movies becomes a lot more difficult as you have to go through a lot of history and details before you can actually start content writing for a movie.

There is an accepted trend in making movies out of popular cartoons, comics, history and literary works. Major film industries aren't letting go of the chance to cash in on the popularity of best selling graphic novels and turning them into successful films. In website content writing, movie critics will also have to flow with the trend. They will also have to go through the book or the novel before they see the movie. This will give them a better idea about how the movie was made in context of the book or the novel. Content writing for such movies is really a taxing affair.

Comics as well as graphic novels are a favorite amongst directors and producers every year. Comic-based movies are trending worldwide. Movie makers are also bringing back to life popular cartoon characters and cashing in on their ever-lasting popularity.

With the television industry adding new features almost every year like internet movie streaming, the manufacturers of televisions are facing a downward trend. Research has stated a decline in the worldwide sale of LCD TVs in the coming months. This will be the first ever decline that they have to face since the launch of LCD TV in 2000.

Many popular TVs can now be connected to the Internet, a drift which started almost a year ago with restricted functions, such as news and weather. Now, advanced systems and new partnerships will provide online streaming movies through the TV.

Features for top tier TV models also include advanced representation of fast-moving scenes and a low usage of power. Sony, LG, Toshiba Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. will introduce TVs that can display Flickr photos, YouTube videos and many more with just a broadband connection.

TV manufacturers have already upgraded the TVs to 240 frames per second without setting up more new frames. The first eco-friendly line of LCD TVs is the 00 Eco Bravia models that consume almost 40 percent less power, exceeding the usual requirements.

Last, most analysts agree 3-D viewing is the next big wave coming to the consumer electronics industry. Watching films on the Internet is becoming popular, and will only enhance the reviewer's ability to do a fast movie review.

All these changes in the industry will subsequently change the method and quality of article writing for movies. Article writing for movies will become more crisp and clear as the critics will be able to view better picture and sound quality. Even the slightest mistake will shine on the screen giving the critics a chance to include them in their article writing.

My Verdict on Balance (1989) A Short Film

If one wants to understand the directors' vision of the short film Balance, he/she would have to possess great knowledge of German history or be prepared to delve into the subject. The leading political parties in those days may have (and I use 'may' because I'm not entirely surely) curtailed the freedom of expression, which including films by censoring direct references or attacks against the government. Unless we have lived in those times or are as curious as Leo Tolstoy about World history, we may not understand many elements in Balance: the numbers on the... (What should I call them?) daunting figures, why these figures looked identical, and what the musical box represented etc, since they are represented symbolically.

But one can grasp a general idea about the film- some say it is about corruptive power, some feel the movie castigates materialism while a few reviewers with good historical knowledge talk about fascism and related topics. After a couple of watches, I observed one small detail that cleared some concepts in my mind- the person who was sitting on the box while the platform kept tilting left and right managed to eliminate most of his companions, and while at first he does this accidentally, by the end his deed is deliberate and cruel.

This made me think of the box as some form of throne or title. Before it arrives, the five work in perfect harmony till the contents of the box are heard by the characters. Then one decides to do away with the box (he possible prefers harmony) and tries to create an imbalance to knock off the foreign object. But he is stopped by another as the rest witness the action, baffled. When one begins to dance to the music playing from within the box, another applies pressure on the platform to bring the box towards him. This causes the performer to sit on the box to prevent falling, while the rest move hurriedly in a state of panic and confusion. The guy on top of the box doesn't push the first guy intentionally and we can make this out by the look on his face. The second person too is kicked accidentally, but when the man had an option to save his last mate, he decided not to.

Now understand this situation using this context: the man on the box or the throne inevitably acquires power. The first few times people close to him suffer unintentionally by him or the power he has (the weight of the box) and he can be exonerated for those crimes. But when the person realizes that the box is the source of dominance, he cuts off any others' reach by killing them intentionally and deviously. No one is left to question him, and he seems to be satisfied in the ending. But he doesn't realize how lonely his position at the top is and how far he is from 'power' in metaphorical terms (he doesn't get the fruits of power).

Everyone should see Balance at least once for the various messages it sends across. But make sure about the kind of film you are in the mood for: this isn't your Pixar, happy, all's-well-that-ends-well treat.
