Arts And Entertainment

There are times that due to our busy schedules and different careers in life, we tend to forget to spend some time with our family which is really bad. We must always remember that in order to get closer and have a better relationship with our dearest love ones, we must able to give some of our time to them. Lets all enjoy time together as long as we can still have it. It is very essential because we can never bring back the time that we’ve already lost so no matter how busy you are, you are still obliged to find ways on how you can let them feel your love for them. By simply meeting them and spend quality time doing activities together, you can able to make them happy. And one thing that you can do to make your time with your family the best ones is through arts and entertainment.

The most popular way of spending time with family is to stay at home and enjoy each and everyone’s presence. You can choose some good movies and go with a movie marathon with your siblings.

Movies And Other Media

Watching foreign language movies is a popular way of learning a new language. This is not surprising as movies are entertaining as well.

Foreign Movie Subtitles
It is important to note that while it is possible to learn a language via foreign language movies, you should also try to practice what you have learned with someone who actually speaks the language you are interested to learn as a first language, so that your mistakes can be corrected accordingly.

The most important thing when purchasing foreign language movies for learning purposes is the availability of subtitles. Do not just get a foreign language DVD with English subtitles. Get one with subtitles in the original language the movies was shot in. This way, you not only learn how a language is spoken, but also how it is written, provided the majority of the writing uses the basic Latin alphabet.

I would recommend actually jotting down the foreign subtitles together with its English translation as it does seem to help in memorizing the newly learned words.

Audio Media
Aside from foreign language movies, you can also use other media

Movies And Money On The Internet

Movies and money on the internet? I know you are wondering what that has to do with anything that may be running through your mind right now. That’s easy, at this moment, I have seen that movies that have sequels, are the safest to bet on. Yes, it is as easy as that. Remember the last time you watched a James Bond movie and liked it? I bet you watched all the following sequels if you did. It would be much more difficult if it was a new movie that you are unsure about and someone is asking you to spend your valuable money to buy a ticket and watch it. Anyway, People will always be willing to pay for a movie that they liked, the first time it was released. Therefore chances are high that they will like the sequel, and pay to go see it.

Another way to generate revenue from films is to put up your own blog that critiques the films, and offer people an opportunity to comment on your posts. If a film like Harry potter and the half blood prince, that is doing so well currently at the box office was

Television And Movies And Their Lasting Effects

Some movies (and television shows) make us laugh or cry, while others make us take more notice of the world around us. Have you ever watched a film that made you angry about all the injustices in the world? What about a movie that got you interested in a subject you wouldn’t have been interested in otherwise? Ever heard a bump in the night and thought about the horror movie you saw the night before? Good TV shows and movies stick with us long after we have finished watching them. Even if you think you have forgot about what you watched shortly after viewing it, it sometimes only takes one little thing for it to be ripped out of our subconsciousness.

Twenty years ago I went through my “Indian phase” in which I became heavily interested in Native American history after watching the movie “Dances with Wolves”. I re-decorated my living space with Native American artwork, including feathers, pelts and even a tomahawk. For Christmas that year I was given the score to the movie. I played it over and over again, and that soundtrack in turn sparked my interest in classical music. This particular movie may

Making Movies and Film Investors

There are extremely talented potential filmmakers out there that never make a movie because they just can’t bring themselves to take the leap of faith. Saying yes to making a movie starts with an attitude that regardless if your movie is entertaining or terrible at least you give it an honest go to see if you got the fire in you to make movies.

In the world of making of movies, especially at the indie film level, there are zero guarantees that every aspiring filmmaker that sets out to go from screenplay to distributed movie will make it to the end. Making movies is risky creatively and financially. Sometimes a movie falls apart during pre-production, filming or in post-production for lots of different reasons.

Making a movie to me is like gambling. You try your best as a filmmaker to tilt the odds in your favor as much as possible so you can win. Professional gamblers make educated bets and so should filmmakers. The one thing that successful gamblers and filmmakers need is the attitude that they are going to go all in on their movie making risk.

Saying yes to making a movie is

How To Put Movies And Videos I

Apple recently surprised the market with its new iPod video, also know as the last generation of iPods. This powerful new gadget doesn’t just play music; it plays videos and photos as well and serves to be an all-in-one portable entertainment platform for the market. The new video function is a great addition but many owners will require some technical help to put videos into the iPod.

Firstly, you should know that the iPod can play H.264 / MPEG-4 encoded videos with AAC audio tracks. Due to this fact, the resolution is rather limited, together with the limitation of the bit rates that you can use on the device. For the new iPod video, this limits means (for the H.264 video) up to up to 768 Kbps, 320 x 240 and 30 frames per second. For the MPEG-4 video, the limits are up to 2.5 mbps, 480 x 480 and the same 30 frames per second. Even more, the AAC audio bit rate is around 160 Kbps. After establishing these limits, the next step is to establish the source of the

Movies and Television on DVD

Movies, they have been around to entertain us for over 100 years. Over this time, technology has improved to allow us to watch movies at home via 8mm reel to reel, VHS and Betamax video tape, CD-ROM (VCD movies) and currently DVD format. The DVD format, emerged informally as “digital versatile disc” around 1995. Research by Sony/ Philips and Toshiba around this time came from looking for alternatives to CD-ROM and VHS/Beta tapes as a replacement.

DVD has become a popular format for not just movies but for several platforms of media today, used in formats like DVD players for movies and TV series, consoles like the PlayStation and XBOX, and for Personal Computers (which are also used for storage, the DVD-R +R, DVD-RW & DVD-RAM formats).

Since 2005, Sony and Toshiba have again gone head to head with Bluray (Sony) and HDDVD (toshiba) and with those of you old enough to remember the Betamax (Sony) and VHS (Toshiba) it is reminisce of the format wars of 25 odd years back.

For most, these two new formats are generation II of DVD, Bluray has a slightly larger capacity than HDDVD (around 30 Gb compared to

Try Using Movie and Internet Style Advertising

You have looked at all your options for advertising and in need of a new opportunity? Try using movie and internet style advertising and sales to promote your local business

1) There is a lot of local advertiser using the dead time before a movie starts to promote their businesses. They are maximizing the benefits of the time that you are waiting and their exposure to the consumer at the same time. Their message is given out in a presentation style that also keeps you entertained for this short time. It is a win- win for the businesses and the theater.

2) You message can be one of offerings of discounts or of simply options on what the movie goers can do after the show. Food or dessert type businesses do well in this venue. Car dealerships, furniture stores, even the US Army and National Guard use this time to promote their wares. The possibilities are endless. Pair that with an easy to remember web address and you will have made an impact and possibly many sales, as well.

3) The audience is almost captives as they wait for the movie to start, so they are really likely

Impact of Technology On The Field of Arts

Nearly everyone enjoys the different types of entertainment, and some people enjoy even more being entertainers. They want to become actors, comedians, dancers, singers. We used to go inside theatres after a hard day’s work to relax and see our favorite plays. But only in the last hundred years have we been able to record sound and pictures and to broadcast them through air. These improvements have brought fun and entertainment to every corner of the world and into most of our homes.

Technology has indeed made it possible for us to see entertainment in a new light. For one, technology has made it also possible for us to store our memories. Actors and singers long dead seem to come to life again every time their films or records are played. We can store a seemingly countless number of these records and films in CDs, hard drives and other storing devices like our computer. This makes it possible for us to entertain ourselves almost anywhere- at home, at the office, at the park, the bus; as long as we bring our devices with us. One can actually live without TV these days as long as one has

Now you know why I NEVER watch the news. Does the above information affect my life? Yes if I pay attention to it. No if I FOCUS on what I desire in my life.

Okay so tell me I’m ignorant I simply have to know what’s going on to be informed and come across as an educated person that the tribe wants to do business with. Well I don’t belong to the tribe and they can do business amongst themselves thank you. Yeah I don’t even watch TV. Okay so that’s a lie. I do watch TV, but I choose very carefully. Non of that mindless sitcom, violent movies and the news. I stay focused on what I desire all the time and I find that if I watch trash I get trash! The power of what the

Movies and Story Telling at Its Best

The movie industry in the USA has delivered a forum for story-telling that is unparalleled in human history. The general public can draw from this delivery system to spend a few hours in total fantasy, or to have cultures presented and viewpoints acted out to inform and entertain.

Story-telling has always been a unique and honored method of communication and of making sense of the activities, possibilities and limitations around us. The ideas that often are lost in direct articulation, can be better understood when acted out in story form.

The USA presents a noble and free palette upon which uncensored story-telling is possible. And our free enterprise system supports and encourages the many delivery systems from which we can draw.

The time-honored movie delivery system of the public theatre is a grand example of combining entertainment and communication. Most of us have enjoyed the “dinner and movie”, allowing for an inexpensive and thoroughly entertaining evening out.

Many of us have experienced the slightly weird but thoroughly enjoyable drive-in movie. This was often an eerie experience.

Rows of cars lined up in the dark to allow for the occupants to view a common

Automated Home Theatre and Entertainment

Home entertainment just got better and cooler. If you have ever got together at your place to watch football matches or enjoy movies, you must know how irritating it is to grope around the dark for the remote control, or when the phone rings, and you have to pause the movie. Oh wait, turn on the lights so you don’t trip over yourself.

Entertaining French Films You Should See

I love watching films from all over the world. I do not really fancy films that are remade. I prefer them in their original context. Sometimes, actual meanings of phrases are lost in translation because they only make sense in the original language of the film. I have a fondness for French films because I like the language and my collection of French DVDs is testament to that.

I have over a hundred French DVDs and even some on video tape in my collection of French films. I have spent the last 2 decades adding to my foreign movie and movie poster collection. Here are is a short writeup of three of my favorite French movies.

8 Femmes
8 Femmes or 8 women, is musical comedy-mystery based on a play by Robert Thomas. From the title, you would easily guess that the movie has to do with 8 women. The movie reminds me the board game Cluedo accept that we already when the murder took place and what weapon was used.

The plot of the movie centers around the relationships of these 8 women and the master of a house who has been mysteriously murdered.

Art and Entertainment Then

What is art and entertainment?

Art and Entertainment is a medium which is liked by say by every person both are two sides of the same coin. The only difference it the materials for entertainment have a popular or mass appeal, it can be understood easily by commoners whereas art involves are fined sense of understanding. The, difference between Van Gogh’s paintings and a James Bond movie. One is art the other is entertainment. But the purpose of both is relaxing the mind and generating a pleasurable feeling.

Difference between art and entertainment.

Art includes paintings, poems, sculptures, installations in studios and museums. Entertainment includes Hollywood movies, television serials, theaters, circuses.
Nowadays artists are trying to do more of interactive art so that there creation can reach to all, poems are taking the form of rap songs. Contemporary art is very much interfused with everyday issues, the problems or situations a person goes through. Aphrodite is a classical Greek art. Monalisa by Leonardo da Vinci is renaissance art done on poplar paper and oil paint. Pablo Picasso and Vincent Vangogh contribute to modern art. Postmodern art or contemporary art consists of Installations, Intermedia, Multimedia and

Movies and Music

Entertainment was always the IN thing, even before we really got hi-tech and started keeping separate space for television as well as the Radio sets in our homes. We entertained ourselves in different ways. Each person had his own way of entertainment.

The very early ages found men and women dancing and singing to entertain, the dances started after dinner at sunset and went on till night, this was also one way to find prospective life partners.

A little bit of sophistication and making of societies brought all this to an end. More than this suppression of women made entertainment a different thing for men and different for women.

There were quite some numbers of avenues to entertain themselves, from visiting the professional entertainers to going hunting for a game of deer. The opportunities were many. But among all this confusion of entertainment, there was one type which never failed, and does not have any likelihood of being ignored forever.

These were the sounds smooth, enthralling, engaging as well as a feat from the person who sang or played music. Sounds, which were good clear entertainment, this entertainment had the ability to put to

Combination Or Standard Blu Ray Movies And Discs

While the introduction of combination DVD and Blu Ray movies on one disc has been slow, such discs are now starting to show up on store shelves. As such, when one buys a combination DVD and Blu Ray discs, one can play such titles both now and in the future. Of course, in doing so, one also prevents having to purchase titles which one may already own on DVD.

In fact, one may even want to purchase titles which one may already own on DVD. As such, one may want to locate a local audio video retailer who buys, sells and trades such media. In addition, as many individuals have not as of yet converted to more advanced technology, one can often pick up a small amount of cash through such transactions.

Still, one may also want to know more about Blu Ray and how such technology works. As such, the term is used to define the blue laser used to read the disc. This is one reason new combination movies have one film on one side and one on the other, so that the DVD player can read both sides. As such, although one may

Find Your Favorite Cult Movies

Whether they’re hideous, hilarious, or just plan hard to stop watching, cult movies-over-the-top or quirky movies that develop an obsessively loyal fanbase over the course of generations-can provide some of the most memorable and entertaining connections with cinema that any kind of movie watching experience has to offer.

Even though many of these classics enjoy their status in the absence of box office success or critical acclaim, they offer something else-the opportunity to have a uniquely personal experience with a piece of American pop culture that is often shared with friends, family, or even strangers. How many times have you and your brother driven the family crazy at Christmas quoting favorite lines from “Office Space”, for example? Or did your now-husband decide he was in love with you when he realized that you were the only girl he had ever dated who thought that “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” was just as hilarious as he does?

If you’re looking for ways to find more airings or public screenings of your favorite cult movies, discover “new-to-you” cult movies or add to your permanent cult collection, these 5 tips can help you successfully connect with some of

Movies and Entertainment

A documentary film is one of several creative modes, including narrative fiction and experimental avant-garde. Documentaries have a purpose, viewpoint and approach, and evolves from the formative process – as either scripted or spontaneous. Documentaries are limited to reality or actuality.

Most of the production requirements for documentaries refer to the fact that there are no sets, actors are not used, and real people, not actors, play themselves.

Documentaries have been credited thrpoughout history for having a huge impact on cultural meanings. Many film schools worldwide teach the art of documentary filmmaking. The schools and classes teach understanding the fundamental aesthetic tools of documentary filmmaking such as camera operation, sound, structure, and also the interview.

The Future of Hollywood, Movies

When’s the last time you went to the theater? I am referring not to the movie theaters, which themselves are experiencing dwindling ticket sales, but to a theater with a stage?

They do exist, though they are mainly frequented by two types of audience members. The first are the traditionalists, the connoisseurs, people who appreciate theater as a unique art form. These people tend to be middle to upper class, middle age to elderly, and may or may not bring their families with them, if they have families. These people often see the same productions over and over, usually by different theater companies. They may be particular fans of Shakespeare or Frederico Garcia Lorca, and usually these patrons have a long history of going to the theater that often began when their parents took them as children.
