Appreciate Films

Monday, January 4, 2010

There are many different genres in film: action, adventure, comedy, crime, drama, epics, horror, musical, science fiction, war, and westerns. Want to have the best experience possible?

Realize the type of film you are watching, and adjust accordingly. For example if you are watching a western movie, don't expect there to be lots of technological advancements.Be in tune with your tastes. If you can't stand musicals then don't waste your time watching them.Pay attention to a film you are watching. Some people can become easily distracted and when the main point of the film appears they don't understand what has happened. This can lead to lots of criticism of the movie.Understand the type of work people have done in order to entertain you as a viewer. Actors, editors, and directors have put a lot into the cinematographic production of these movies.When watching a film pick an environment suitable for you. If you like going to a theatre then do so, but other people would rather watch a movie in the home.Pay attention to the positive side of a film. Most people watch films for enjoyment so if you are consistently pointing out or looking for the negative things in a film then you aren't going to enjoy the film.

Understand the intent of the movie. Most movies will try to tell a story, but the intent of a film can be to communicate a set of characters, a time in history, or even a single emotion. Pay attention to the intent and judge accordingly.Try to see a movie on the day it released or soon thereafter. Movie prints are quickly damaged by projection equipment and inexperienced operators. The projectionist is typically the person who sells you your treats. They run up to the booth at the start time or may even press a button right there in the lobby to start the picture.Watching a damaged print is no fun because there are distracting breaks and scratches. Sometimes it is unavoidable because the town you live in may not be included in the movie's initial release. Even if you get the movie on the second week, chances are it will already be damaged. The chain showing the movie has shipped a damaged print to your theatre and given a nice fresh print to a theatre that is higher on the company food chain. Exhibitor politics.

Try complaining about damage to the print. Watch them look at you as if you are from the planet Tralfamador. When you see a movie as soon as it is released, you get the jump on your friends. You can ask them, "Have you seen ____ yet?" When they say no, you can say, "YOU HAVEN'T!!" to make them feel uncool and unhip. Put yourself in the film makers shoes (metaphorically!) and try to find out what they are trying to say to the audience, don't be too quick too judge the movie as a bad one.
