Snow White and the Huntsmen

  • Posted on September 9, 2017 at 9:22 am

A classical film redone into a thriller. Snow White and the Huntsmen shocked me it was one of the best movies I have seen all year. A Disney film redone into an exhilarating action packed movie. Kristen Stewart is at her best in this film. Personally I didn’t think she should play anything but in the Twilight Saga but she surprised me as she gave a stupendous performance. This movie is a remake of the classic Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This movie tells of an epic story about how a young girl defies her step mother and gets the whole kingdom back to what it was when her father ruled.

Some people did not like this movie because they said Kristen Stewart acts the same in all her movies, I beg to differ she gave an astonishing and surprising performance in this exciting tale of love and adventure. The story line and the special effects were shocking and exciting. The white mystical creature in the movie was the most beautiful and epic part of the movie. It shows that no matter how small or big you are everyone and everything has a purpose in life. In the film, she walks up to this white mystical beast and it bows down to her and blesses her. At that moment the dwarfs would do anything for her because they realize she is the one who will restore their kingdom to the powerful and peaceful place that it was.

The director of this movie couldn’t have picked a better actress to play this role. Kristen Stewart gives her most unexpected performance of the year. She has played in a lot of movies but this one makes it to the top. With the cast and crew that help make this movie it is one of the most amazing and theatrical remakes of a Disney film. I recommend this movie to anyone searching for an action packed film with drama and excitement. This movie has shown me that you are significant without a doubt. It will give you the courage to stand up and believe in yourself. That is what Kristen Stewart showed in this film.

Dhoom 3 and Their Promotional Tactics

  • Posted on September 5, 2017 at 12:49 pm

The super hit franchise is back with its third installation and this time with Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan bagging the lead. The film of course does have Abhisekh Bachchan and Uday Chopra but that again is a mere formality in the plot, isn’t it? Accompanying them in a gorgeous avatar is Katrina Kaif who is spreading her magic with the song Dhoom Machale. While the film is predicted to make a collection of over Rs. 200 crore, the film makers are making sure they get the maximum leverage out of the coverage before the film even releases. This will begin once Aamir Khan pushes his genius marketing tactics for promoting the film. But the question really is that does the film need promotion? Banking on the star cast and the past hits by the same franchise, the film is a sure shot hit. Also, considering the fact that no big banners are launching any movies during the same time, the film will not be at the split ends at the Box Office.

So the question still remains here that can the film break all records without being hard sold? Possibly yes and the reason for this is because Dhoom 3 has already sold off its satellite rights to Sony Max at a whooping price of Rs. 75 crore. And with brands like Mountain Dew and BMW coming into the picture as product associations, the film has gone beyond the mark of being a hit already. Though the formality of promotion would include new song teasers and launches to create excitement, the makers will make sure they do everything to make it big. Similar attempt was seen by the makers and the agency handling the social media of the film during the launch of the song Dhoom Machale. While the song has crossed a mark of half a million hits on YouTube, the trailer of the film has received over 10 million hits already. And since then no Indian TV channel has been missing out on the opportunity in showing either the teasers or the songs on their channels. Watch movie channels like Max and UTV or music channels like MTV, Mix and 9XM who have harped on the popularity of the song and have constantly fed it on their television schedule as well as on their online portals. The success of the songs and teasers will surely contribute to the success of the film, but will the film manage to break records and steal hearts we will find out on 20th December, 2013.

Advancement in Television Viewing Experience

  • Posted on August 5, 2017 at 10:54 am

We have moved beyond black and white TVs, antenna TV sets and cable TV which didn’t need a specific reason to go off! We’re in better times with a constant help of technology, bringing forth the pleasure of leisure in our lives along with comfort and ease.
The television viewing experience in itself has become so advanced not just for the quality of programs delivered with technological excellence, but also for the various platforms to view these shows. Earlier, TV shows were quite a catch with their timing, also leading to infamous remote quarrels in houses.
However, that is not the case today. Set top boxes which have been made mandatory in most cities in the country and are still being mandatory in the rest have facilitated the viewers with a better TV watching experience. The first benefit being, the availability of over 500 channels unlike the commoners with only select channels like Star Plus, Sony TV, Aaj Tak finding their way. The variety of these channels exposes the viewer to a larger variety of channels, more niches that are entering the market. For instance, a set-top box subscriber can avail Sony TV HD, Colors TV HD, Star Plus HD, Zee TV HD etc. the benefit of HD channels being a separate programming schedule at most time, lack of commercial breaks, and a better picture quality.
Another way to have an access to these shows is to watch online. Majority TV shows are easily available on websites like YouTube, Dailymotion etc. On the other hand, popular TV channels to watch online are availability; especially GEC’s like Sony TV, Colors TV, Star Plus, Zee TV etc are hosted online by various websites for different nations. What is surprising is that most of these channels do host their own channels for a world viewing purpose on the internet. But channels put up chunks of their serials online to gain more attention and popularity. Also, reality shows like Bigg Boss, Boogie Woogie, etc where a lot of content cannot be broadcasted due to guidelines and restrictions. Thus, the biggest benefit for shows online is the freedom to showcase uncensored content. There is tremendous scope for advancements and innovations for TV channels to watch online, by exploring the strategies and newer ideas as per the technological advancements and availability of devices and platforms. EventuallyFree Articles, we are all aware of the reality that online is the future of any content creating agents.

The Influential Cultures of Humour

  • Posted on July 25, 2017 at 2:26 pm

Throughout the world, humour has been presented through several forms. Various cultures have emphasized different aspects of humour and have made it their own. In this article, we will take a brief look at four different cultures and the main characteristics of their brand of humour and how they have sometimes influenced another culture�s humour.

American humour: American stand-up comedians use a wide variety of comedic forms in their routines. Their humour can be categorized as more slapstick, improvisational, and oftentimes observational, especially due to the influx of Jewish comedians like Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce, and Jerry Seinfeld during the latter part of the 20th Century. African-American comedians also play a very big part in American humour and some of the country�s most-celebrated comedians like Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, and Eddie Murphy hail from that community. Compared to British humour, American comedy tends to be more direct and less subtle. It can also be more risqu� and profane than British humour with topics ranging from drug consumption to sex with lots of profanity in order to shock and offend the audience.

British humour: British comedians often use satire, irony, innuendo, and absurd elements to make their audiences laugh. There isn�t any subject that is taboo to British humour, though comedians tend to be more subtle about controversial topics like sex than their American counterparts. They also make a lot of jokes about stereotypes of different cultures present in the United Kingdom. The television series Monty Python and Ali G are good examples of this. In fact, British television comedy shows have been so influential that a lot of them have been remade for American audiences, such as is the case for The Office, All in the Family, and Three�s Company.

Jewish humour: Due to its vast influence on American comedy, Jewish humour plays a very large role in comedy on this side of the pond. As mentioned above, their humour is very much observational, anecdotal, and self-deprecating, with lots of references to Jewish culture, their religion, and even sometimes anti- Semitism. When Jews began to immigrate to the United States following World War II, they were having a hard time finding mainstream success, but they eventually came to acceptance with the emergence of American radio and television sitcoms. In the 1950s, Milton Berle, a Jewish comedian, became the first major television star during TV�s golden age. Today, Jewish humour is still very much a part of North American comedy, thanks in part to the success of television sitcoms like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Canadian humour: Partly because of its many regional cultural differences, Canadian humour is influenced by various themes and trends. English-speaking Canadians often make jokes at the expense of French-speaking Canadians, and vice versa. �Newfie� jokes are also very popular throughout Canada and have become part of Canadian culture. Canadian comedians also enjoy poking fun at the numerous differences between Americans and Canadians. One example of this is Rick Mercer�s comedy routines, Talking to Americans. Like British comedy, satire is one of the most evident characteristic of Canadian humour, specifically in political comedy shows such as Royal Canadian Air Farce and The Rick Mercer Report.

Slam Dunk Festival Review

  • Posted on July 19, 2017 at 10:15 am

Well its finally come to the point where I feel human again after the weekend… Starbucks might be partly responsible on that front though!

This weekend saw it being what I always see as my favourite weekend of the year – Slam Dunk Festival! Traditionally for me its been the time when the old group from uni get back together, see bands drink beers and have a great day. This year was no exception. The numbers were not quite the same but the day was still primed and ready to go.

So this year I was more excited than most… smaller numbers make decisions easier, rounds more sensible, generally a good vibe.

First up, transit (first for us anyway). Now normally the pop punk bands were on a little stage, which was pretty cool but obviously you have to fight to see anything, and if you’re away from the main floor the sound quality is awful. Not so this year. On the stylus stage at Leeds University where bands like alkaline trio and everytime i die have slayed it in recent years, the bands I love pulled in some serious crowds. Anyway transit impressed me, and maybe converted me a little. Don’t get me wrong I liked a few songs before and I’d seen them support Man Overboard years ago (and play in some dudes living room). However I had recently given New Young England a few plays and I have to say as a band they have definitely grown (in general and on me) they held the crowd well and played a pretty sweet set.

I’ve seen The Story So Far a few times in the past year and usually in smaller environments. I have to say they owned the stage, and crowd lapped it up. They played a tight set with the energy that I’ve come to associate with them, and there was a genuine connection with the crowd. We could barely get into the main bit of the crowd for these guys at first, which surprised me (in a good way), but a great set full of energy and singalongs was exactly the thing I needed to get me going! I can’t even pick a high point because the set was littered with classics!

Next up was Man Overboard. Now I love these guys don’t get me wrong, but I have to say I was left a little cold (love your friends die laughing & rare aside). Maybe it was because we decided to chill on the sidelines above the main crowd but I just get the feeling this band works much better in a smaller room. Though maybe this is because the other two had left so much to live upto.

Fireworks were next on the list for us, and this was something I was genuinely buzzing about. I haven’t see these guys in three years as that’s how long they’d been away, and they didn’t disappoint! Weirdly the crowds thinned out for this… I honestly wasn’t disappointed, we got right under Dave MacKinder and it was electric. It was the first time I had heard any of gospel live and I wasn’t disappointed! The wild bunch is one of my personal favourites, and was amazing live. hey put on such a tight performance and seem like genuinely likeable people. Thoroughly impressed!

We factored in a little time for Polar bear club after fireworks, as per usual they didn’t disappoint – although personally the songs I saw when I caught them save a couple weren’t ones I knew well or particularly like, but I guess that’s my fault not theirs! They played screams in caves and burned out in a jar, which always sound brilliant live!

And then there was the wonder years… I’m sure if you’ve read anything I’ve written anywhere, seen my last fm charts or my twitter you’ll know my thoughts on these guys. So this was the first time they’d played new stuff here. I have to say its only been a year or so since I last saw them, but wow these guys seem to just get tighter and grow as a live band. Kicking off with passing through a screen door and just ripping through everything they did, the crowd was absolutely loving it, and so was I! Personal high points for me have to be the Bastards, The Vultures, The Wolves and All My Friends are in bar bands – I mean who can’t get a shiver down their spine when the wonder years are on stage with the Dave Mckinder, Nik from man overboard, matty from a loss for words all getting on the I’m not sad anymore bit? AMAZING!

In between this and our headliner, we had some down time, no one really jumped out that we were keen to see. We caught some of senses fail, which I have to say I used to really like (the albums still searching and life is not a waiting room I really enjoyed). However not sure whether it was because they followed on from the wonder years, or whether it was in the small room i mentioned before, but it didn’t really do anything for me, the sound was pretty off and by this point I was ready fro a burger a beer and quick breather!

Then came headline time (after the essential items mentioned before). I picked Andrew McMahon, because I’ve always been a huge fan of him, gutted I never saw him in something corporate but in his Jack’s Mannequin days I was a fan and caught him a couple of times. So picture the scene, tiny room, a dude and a piano. Personally I was in my absolute element! It may have been tightly packed and sweaty but it was the most amazing thing I have seen in a long while. He kicked off with the mixed tape and alternated between something corporate and jacks mannequin songs, with one of his own new ones for good measure. I cannot recommend catching this guy live enough. Oh and he played Konstantine… I had seen this on set lists but I wasn’t going to have belief in hearing it until he did… that was a pretty special moment for me if I’m honest.

Overall, I’m a slam dunk veteran and i think this was my favourite one of all time… good luck topping that next year!

Best top 10 bollywood and hollywood Mmovies

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 8:53 am

BARFI! cannot be slotted in any particular genre.The beauty of the film lies in the fact that it instantly absorbs you into Barfi’s world. I wish to specify that one should not correlate BARFI! with disability. It’s more about characters who face the challenges that life has to offer, yet live a more gratifying life than anyone else. It’s about living each day of your life to the fullest, giving happiness, feeling love. It’s a unique love story between three exceptional characters, something we haven’t witnessed on the Hindi screen earlier. On the whole, BARFI! is unusual for Bollywood. You don’t formulate movies like BARFI! targeting its box-office potential or its commercial prospects. You create such films for the passion of cinema. BARFI! is akin to a whiff of fresh air. Its foremost triumph is that it leaves you with a powerful emotion: Happiness! I sincerely believe, no Hindi movie buff should deprive himself/herself of watching this brilliant motion picture. Also, the viewer needs to savor Ranbir, Priyanka and Ileana’s paramount performances, one of the strengths of this movie.

Ek Tha Tiger

To be fair, Ek Tha Tiger is a very different beast from recent Salman Khan starrers, particularly his last two releases, Ready and Bodyguard. The romantic portions in Ek Tha Tiger are warm and fuzzy, the humor thankfully clean and light-hearted, but as a thriller set in the world of espionage, it�s ironic that the people least intelligent here are the intelligence officers themselves. Ek Tha Tiger is far from unwatchable. It�s a welcome change from the harebrained films we�ve seen Salman Khan in lately, and for what it�s worth he�s playing a character and not himself for a change. The question you have to ask is � Is that enough?I�m going with two-and-a-half out of five for director Kabir Khan�s Ek Tha Tiger. At best, it�s a satisfying watch. Just don�t go in with high expectations.
The Dirty Picture�: Her sensuous look shocked, her itsy-bitsy clothes astonished and her double meaning dialogues left audiences gasping for breath, but all this nothwithstanding, Vidya Balan swept both the classes and the masses off their feet with her bold avatar in Ekta Kapoor`s �The Dirty Picture�.

An unofficial biopic of southern sex symbol Silk Smitha, the film broke the myth that only movies with �Khans� work at the Box Office.

�Bodyguard�: Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor`s �Bodyguard� broke the opening day records by earning Rs.22 crore on the first day. Although the story of the film, directed by Atul Agnihotri, didn`t have much to say, the music as well as the action sequences worked in its favour.

Salman`s signature dialogue � �Mujh par ek ehsaan karna ki mujh par koi ehsaan na karna� – once again struck a chord with fans.
Dabangg 2

DABANGG 2 is a typical Bollywood film. It�s the kind of cinema we relished in the 1980s and enjoy to this date, but narrated in today�s lingo and format. It may/may not make sense to you, but Arbaaz and team ensure that you are entertained. Thoroughly entertained, actually. It�s riotous, outrageous, wacky, ambitious, absolutely madcap, transports you to an altogether different world. For those who adore masala movies, celebrate mainstream cinema, relish the cinema of yore and of course, hero-worship Salman Khan, DABANGG 2 is your ticket this festive season. On the whole, DABANGG 2 has Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan + Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment in large doses. The film has the masala to work big time with the masses.

Finding the Best New Shows

  • Posted on June 27, 2017 at 4:11 pm

The Winter TV Season often brings a few new shows to each network’s lineup that are true gems, but they are often mixed in with duds that were better off on the cutting room floor. Wading through or even trying to preview a lineup filled with shows with problems to find the ones worth watching can be difficult, but it is often worth it. All it takes is a little knowledge of why a new winter show was scheduled for this less popular season instead of the fall or spring lineup to help the viewer find the best new programs on the winter schedule.

The winter TV season often has shows in the lineup that fall into the following categories:

1. Reality and other unscripted shows that can be cobbled together quickly and without the need for months’ worth of scheduling, filming, and set design. These shows are perfect replacements in the schedule for other programs the networks hoped to air but were not filmed in time or were deemed such a disaster after being previewed that they were never even tried.

2. Shows that were prime time ready in the fall lineup, but due to delays in filming or scheduling, or “problems” with the actors (pregnancy, injury, interference with other projects), were not ready in time.

3. Show that were scheduled for the fall lineup but were deemed too risky for this prime advertising season due to controversial content, surprisingly weak initial critical reviews, or faltering story lines after the first few episodes.

4. A new show may be deemed perfect for the winter TV season because of its content, such as a holiday themed show, a reality show where winter is the prime season, or a spin-off of a fall season show.

5. A TV series that did not do well in its first or second season but is still positively acclaimed by critics or has a loyal following of viewers may not be worth using in the highly competitive and financially important fall TV season. However, it may very well be perfect for a shot at a jump start in the winter lineup.

The Winter TV season actually creates a unique opportunity for networks to promote new shows against less competition, and to schedule them for times when they will not be overshadowed by popular established shows. All you, the viewer, has to do is use your own judgment about why a new show is being previewed in the winter, and what its prospects are for survival. For example, a new show in category #2 above probably has better prospects than a show in category #1. A show in category #5 may be risky to get in to and attached to the characters if it might eventually be headed for cancellation despite its strong following.

Understanding the Winter TV season, and knowing the reasons why individual shows have been scheduled to air during this unconventional time periodFree Articles, can help you find the true gems. This can make the time in the yearly schedule between your favorite popular “established” shows more exciting and interesting.
