The Top 4 Nickelodeon Movies of All-Time

Nickelodeon has been a successful TV station for kids and teen entertainment for quite some time now. With many award winning series as well as comedic performances from many of today’s youngest talent, it’s no wonder Nickelodeon decided to enter in the film business as well.

Nick has produced some Nickelodeon Original films (similar to Disney Channel Original films) to spark of the interest of those young and old. Some of them took off as successful hits and below we’ll dive into what makes these four the best Nickelodeon movies of all-time.

Nick Movie #4: Harriet The Spy

Harriet was a big hit with viewers of Nickelodeon. Harriet reenacted what it would be like for a kid to live out their dream of becoming an actual spy. This classic tale dives into the life of Harriet and her secret diary where she keeps all of her most ‘top secret’ information and notes. This movie was especially appealing to viewers because it gave them the sense of being able to live out their childhood dreams and grow up to be whatever they chose. It also reached popularity since it teaches kids valuable lessons and what occasions make for better instances to keep quiet then to speak out. Harriet proves that being a female shouldn’t stop you from chasing your dreams and your goals. A definite ‘feel good’ movie that keeps viewers entertained and following along closely in anticipation of what she’ll do next.

Nick Movie #3: The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

What child doesn’t love one of their favorite TV series coming to the big screen? The popular show brought to life in the experience of a full length film brings an exciting plot, conflict, and conflict resolve throughout this great adventure. This is the second installment of SpongeBob movies and this one takes things to a whole new level (hence the title of the film). In this all-new adventure SpongeBob and company are brought to life in the real world. The comfort of Bikini Bottom is gone as they must learn to fend for their own in real life. The idea of bringing characters to life with all new animation aspects makes this a must see Nickelodeon film for all ages.

Nick Movie #2: The Rugrats Movie

Another one of Nickelodeon’s classic series is brought to life in this exciting film. The Rugrats series is based off of the different adventures Tommy, Angelica, and the cast of others take in each episode. The movie brings this in a larger picture as the Rugrats take on their biggest adventure yet. With many new introduced characters, new places to explore, and a whole lot of potential trouble to get into; the Rugrats movie provides viewers with that extra ‘kick’ of the Rugrats you love. Combine all of these factors and you have yourself one film that Nickelodeon and Rugrats fans alike won’t want to miss out on.

Nick Movie #1: Good Burger

You could kind of foresee this one taking the top spot couldn’t you? All Nickelodeon fans recognize the movie Good Burger and how it put Nickelodeon movies on the map for viewers of all backgrounds. This movie features cast members off the famed show during the time: “All That”. Bringing these two characters (Kennan Thompson and Kel Mitchell) to play roles as lead acts help lands this movie in the “totally awesome” category. What’s not love when you combine food crisis, comedic actors/actresses, and a plot that thickens throughout? If you are a fan of Nickelodeon and their movies, it would be surprising to find that you haven’t seen this film yet. Classic comedy, genius acting, and a good story line help put this film at the top of our list.

So there you have it. Each film has its own individual appeal and may rank differently in your eyes. The SpongeBob movie being on there is a good sign for Nickelodeon fans. With its relative recent release date, we can only hope that these four don’t mark the end of Nickelodeon movies and that they keep producing them for all viewers.



Could You Make ‘Sons of Anarchy’ a Movie?

A well-rounded, entertaining, eye-popping, attention grabbing; as well as having an interesting plot, are a few adjectives that would describe a successful movie. Aside from some of those descriptive words, a movie has too have characters that the audience may or may not be able to relate to. The show, Sons of Anarchy, is great as a mini-series, but it’s not to be made into a movie.

Any good movie must have an interesting plot, and Sons of Anarchy has the same recurring theme it seems show after show. Each weekly series has to do with the running and selling of drugs, guns, sex, and murder. There’s actually nothing more to do with the show than what was previously stated. Yes, the multiple story-lines of many relationships brings twists and turns to the mini-series, but it’s nothing extremely different from what someone would see on a weekly Lifetime movie.

There’s not enough variety among the characters. Each person, man or woman, is involved with the selling of drugs and guns. Jax, the main character, is just like everyone else, except that he runs the organization (I’m not going to give you any spoilers on that). Everyone rides the same kind of motorcycle, talks the same talk, walks the same walk, and kills people who crosses their paths. The actors and actresses are just too similar to one another, other than the color of his or her hair or the age of their character.

After a while, each episode is just like the one before. There’s not enough variety in what the club members do on a daily or hourly basis. The show is directly organized around the “car shop” or the bar that’s just a cover up for the brothel behind closed doors. If someone were to try and make this show a movie, they wouldn’t have enough audiences to be attracted to the biker gang theme. The individual shows become less interesting over time and more predictable as time goes on.

Sons Of Anarchy is nothing more than a group of tattooed, gun toting, motorcycle riding men and women who like to ride around looking for trouble and eliminating those who get in their way. This is a typical plotted movie that a person could find on either SHOWTIME or HBO. I just don’t think that this TV series would be a successful movie.



Top 3 Movies About Movies

It’s pretty rare that a medium takes off its mask and talks about what it’s like to be itself. The medium of film is one of the few mediums that can pull this off. It’s surprisingly rare when a movie manages to be about making movies, though. It’s like Penn & Teller inviting you backstage to watch while they stuff the rabbits into their suit. Hollywood prefers to work its illusions, and we prefer to see them.

When the film medium does get to talk about itself, it tends to be a fun time for all around. People in the film business do tend towards the vain side, after all. With that said, here are the best 3 examples we could find of this rarest of self-examining mediums caught in the act.

Movies About Movies #3: Bowfinger

Directed by Frank Oz, better known as the voice of Yoda and the director of the previous Steve Martin hit Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, this film was a unique pairing of Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy – two comedy stars who added up to more than the sum of their parts. The movie posters even trumpeted this: “Together for the first time!” Martin is Bobby Bowfinger, an indie film director on a shoestring budget (maybe even half a shoestring) who has promised to deliver top star Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy) in order to get funding. There’s just one snag: Ramsey doesn’t get out of bed for the kind of money Bowfinger is offering, so Bowfinger plans to film Ramsey on the sly.

As a movie about making movies, this works great as a central parody vehicle. Murphy gets to tear up spoiled “prima donna” actor stereotypes, and Martin gets to take a shot at the “auteur” director whose ambitions and pretensions far outweigh his budget. There’s even Heather Graham as studio assistant Daisy, a parody of the Hollywood tramp determined to sleep her way to the top. When Ramsey turns out to belong to a religious cult called “MindHead” which affects his career, it’s such a clear stand-in for Scientology that it’s impossible to miss. A jolly romp all around.

Movies About Movies #2: Entourage

When it comes to movies about making movies, Entourage feels like it got to cheat on the final exam. As the inevitable film to cap off the successful HBO original series which ran eight seasons, it had already said and done so much of its subject matter that this film feels like it has nothing left to do beyond to write “The End.” So the story is just Vincent Chase and his little gang from the series take off on a quest to secure funding from a Texas millionaire so Chase can make his directorial debut. But in reality, the plot is little more than a road-trip framework for everybody’s happy endings.

It’s a good thing, because the whole film is stuffed to groaning capacity with celebrity cameos getting to play themselves. The lineup is transparent stunt-casting; every five minutes it’s saying “Look who we got hold of this time!” Warren Buffett, Pharrell Williams, Mike Tyson, Bob Saget, Andrew Dice Clay, and Mark Cuban, themselves names you’d never think you’d see on the same film stock, and they’re just getting started. The movie is so busy dashing madly from one cameo to the next that it feels more like a David Letterman skit that got out of hand than a cohesive story. Still, this is Entourage we’re talking about, and fans had no right to expect anything less.

Movies About Movies #1: Get Shorty

And now we come to the stylish entry. Get Shorty had a pretty good showing at the box office in its time. It also had the star power of John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Rene Russo, Danny DeVito, Dennis Farina, Delroy Lindo, and James Gandolfini, plus being based on a novel by the celebrated author Elmore Leonard. And there’s even many fun cameos by the likes of Penny Marshall and Harvey Keitel. Of all the “making movies about movies” …movies, this one stands out as the most fun to watch, and very obviously was the most fun to make.

It’s also the least about making movies. Instead, the story focuses on the executive level and the complicated chain of schemes behind the scenes to finagle funding for an eventual movie to be made. Being an Elmore Leonard novel, the twisty plot defies description in a mere recap, but it has more to do with gangsters trying to out-gangster each other while vying for control of a creative Hollywood product. One could substitute a drug empire or a casino as the central MacGuffin everybody is fighting over and not change very much. At the end, the resolution all but dismisses one five-second shot of the film actually being made. Along the way, though, there is plenty of satire of Hollywood culture, and several casting stunts which forces the characters to pretend that DeVito makes a good Hollywood tough guy.

What can we conclude from these examples? Hollywood is still shy in front of the microphone when talking about itself. There’s certainly plenty of room to innovate more in this vein, but it’s also rare to make a movie about the film trade and have it really work well.



Is Too Much Movie Hype a Bad Thing?

Almost everyone has experienced it before. You’ve seen a movie trailer over and over in a short time period. Everywhere you turn you see promotions for the movie. You may even take the time to read early reviews. You buy into the hype and go see the movie only to be extremely disappointed. Over hyping a movie is certainly nothing new. For years, movie companies have put millions of dollars into trying to convince people to pay their hard earned money at the box office. However, too much hype can be a bad thing. With so many options available to consumers, a history of seeing disappointing over-hyped movies could lead to less people in theater seats.

Today’s moviegoer has lots of options. In the past, moviegoers either forked over the money to go to a movie theater, or payed an expensive price for the movie when it came out on video. That’s no longer the case. Redbox allows anyone to rent a movie for simply $1.00. A subscription to Netlfix will provide access to hundreds of movies for just a few bucks a month. Sadly, a simple internet search may give access to many movies illegally. Consumers have so many options. Hyping a movie up may turn the consumer off. They may simply decide to wait and explore one of these cheaper and much more convenient options.

Genre or movie type doesn’t really matter. Action packed summer blockbusters, or the big romantic comedy of the summer usually get lots of promotion beforehand. Watching the same movie at home on a a high definition TV with no large crowds to fight through can be appealing. Tons of hype may cause some to endure waiting a few months to watch the movie in the comfort of their home. One only has to look at the recent Star Wars movie The Force Awakens to see this point. Sure the movie made huge amounts of money at the box office. However, there are tons of die-hard Star Wars fans. Many who are not part of this group that had interest in the film, most likely saw the hype and chose to wait it out.

At the end of the day, movie promoters have to get the word out about their product. Caution should be taken though to not over do it. Fans today have a number of options to see a movie. Again, too much hype may cause them to seek the cheaper and more convenient options.



Famous Father-Son Movie Duos

Since the beginning of time, sons have wanted to be just like their fathers. That’s why it’s not a surprise that many sons follow in their dad’s footsteps when it comes to career choices, whether that career be in law, banking, the healthcare field, and yes, even acting.

There have been quite a few famous father-son duos to grace the big and small screens over the years. Many of these duos have been incredibly talented and popular, which begs the question, is it simply sons following their fathers paths, or do fathers and sons just like to spend time together, even working? Another thing to think about is why the duos have been so popular, and what it takes to make it work.

One of the more popular father-son acting duos are Ben Stiller and his father Jerry Stiller. Both of these talented gentlemen have been in many movies and television shows, some together and some not. The two have both been in films such as ‘The Heartbreak Kid‘, ‘Zoolander‘, ‘Hot Pursuit‘, and ‘Heavyweights‘. There’s really no question in this case about whether talent runs in the family. It looks as though the two genuinely like working together. Both men are very funny and entertaining, and have a great onscreen chemistry. Audiences love watching this pair onscreen for those reasons. The Stillers often appear onscreen as father and son and it seems that in this case the dynamic works well for them because their relationship provides them with great chemistry to begin with.

Clint Eastwood and Scott Eastwood are another very popular father-son duo recently. Everyone knows Clint Eastwood from his long film career, and his son Scott is certainly taking after him with rising popularity. The two have worked together in ‘Gran Torino‘, ‘Invictus‘, and ‘Trouble With The Curve‘. The Eastwoods often portray a different type of relationship onscreen, and typically don’t play father and son or even appear onscreen together at all, but they still have an amazing amount of chemistry when they do appear together. The father son relationship seems to give them an advantage when working together though, and provides them with good chemistry when they do appear together onscreen. Scott’s obviously trying to follow in Clint’s footsteps and wants to learn all he can from him and it shows.

Finally, we get to Will Smith and Jaden Smith are another extremely popular and well-known father-son duo. This pair has been seen together in ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness‘ and ‘After Earth‘. They tend to stick to playing the traditional father and son, which works very well for them. The Smiths seem to have a very close relationship and this translates well to the big screen. Their real relationship also seems to give them an advantage when it comes to onscreen chemistry and their ability to work together. The two look to genuinely like working together and Jaden also seems to be trying to follow in his father’s footsteps and learn from good ol’ dad.

In general, it looks like having a real off-screen relationship, especially a father-son relationship, has its advantages in Hollywood. The popular father-son duos all seem to have a close relationship off-screen, which again is giving them an onscreen advantage when it comes to chemistry and the ability to work together. In order to be able to work together everyday on films for such a long period of time, the pair must genuinely enjoy working together and get along real well. What makes them popular isn’t just their acting skills but their onscreen chemistry together and the entertainment the relationship provides to the audience.



Movie Stars Can Be Effective As Directors Too!

Although sometimes seen as a self-indulgent, the move from actor to director can have all sorts of benefits. Their experience allows them to wring great performances from other actors who’re naturally more likely to trust someone who has been where they are. It also lets them push their own performances when directing themselves.

Charlie Chaplin is an early example of an actor who saw the potential of films to connect with audiences as a performer more intimately than the stage could. Faced with the limited imagination of his directors and producers, he trusted his instincts and crafted a beloved lasting character with the ‘Little Tramp’ persona, knowing from experience what would resonate with audiences.

Since then, many famous faces have succeeded in garnering critical and popular acclaim as directors. Gene Kelly crafted exceptional musicals by knowing exactly what he could do and pushing himself and the choreography to the limits. Ida Lupino used her unique perspective as the only female director in Hollywood to get acclaimed performances from her actresses.

At the height of his career, Clint Eastwood turned his frustrations as an actor dealing with perfectionist directors into a passion for efficient, spare directing, avoiding rehearsals and shooting as few takes as possible. His style not only resonated with audiences but also earned him a reputation for coming in under budget and made him one of the most successful directors to this day.

One of the most distinctive voices in the field, Quentin Tarantino has kept one foot in each side of the line. Although he started out as a director, he delivered trademark quirky performances for other directors as well as memorable turns in his own films. His willingness to put himself out there has made him a popular director with a loyal stable of returning actors who trust him to know how to handle him. George Clooney likewise used his charm and rapport with fellow actors to pursue passion projects like ‘Good Night and Good Luck‘.

For some actors, directing is a chance for a good but not perhaps great performer to show his full potential. During a career downturn, Ben Affleck saw a chance to reinvent himself with his acclaimed dramas ‘Gone Baby Gone‘ and ‘Argo‘, both of which cleverly made use of his low key screen persona to its best effect and leveraged his experience as a writer. Ben Stiller used his comedic success and history in improvisation and ensemble comedy into a directing career that includes such hits as ‘Tropic Thunder‘.

Heck, even in the world of television, Jonathan Frakes evolved from a solid but limited career as an actor into one of the most popular genre directors on the scene by tapping into his experience working in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The trend is unlikely to slow down, the industry is more open than ever and the particular sensibility that an actor can bring to handling a project has taught audiences that they can trust a star they know from the screen to handle the job behind the camera as well.



A Younger Role on The Big Screen

There are many actors and actresses that play roles that require them to look younger. In fact, you’d be shocked to see how some people pull this off.

Most film makers use beauty artists to help tweak it. They can really trace parts of your skin, move it around, do changes to the face or body with software. Even though the software has gotten so useful, sometimes you still have to do it one frame at a time. When you need to zoom a shot up close, you need to actively see that person has not been touched or altered in any way. Because if folks see what you’ve been up to, that’s not going to work.” As we all age our look and body go through momentous form changes as we get older, factors that need to be taken into account for outstanding results. Over time, the eyes get somewhat further apart; earlobes lengthen; foreheads look to extend as the hairline recedes.

Many actors and actresses sit directly with the artist for as many days as it takes to sculpt them into what the director wants and shed many years off of their features and figure. They’re skillful enough to make the hips narrowed, calves slender, turkey necks tucked. Pores are tightened, the sack under the eyes diminish. Hair is thickened, teeth whitened. There is no longer fatty jiggle under the arm. Belly plump totally wiped out, abdominal raised. The list of enhancements can be prolonged as any given actor’s complaints or studio’s expectations concerning his or her appearance, and believe it or not, the men are profiting as much work done as the women. Probably more. If you’ve walked out of theater recently and observe, “She appear great in that strip tease scene!” or “Wow, did you see his abdominal in that scene?”, there’s a high probability they had more going on than just the awesome personal trainer and a strict diet you heard throughout on the late shows.

In any given role in a film, these stars must look the part as well as fit the part. There are many hours that they must put in to establish the right demeanor required for their role. Additionally, it may take them up to several months to get it just right. Furthermore, they must know their role and have the right body expressions, voice, and be able to personalize it to fit the role they are playing. Actors and actresses need to reach deep within themselves to bring up feelings to show the true factor and influence they are portraying. Through using their own life experiences can also put them closer to mastering their characters’ role. It’s good for them also to focus entirely on the other actor or actress as though he or she is genuine and they only be present in that moment. This gives them more insight of the character they’re playing.

As you can see, there’s a lot of work in being a successful actor or actress.



How Acting Has Changed Over Decades

Acting in the movies has changed over the decades since they were invented. Acting was much simpler since the days of Lumiere, where the actors and actresses just had to make sure that they got the point across; that has evolved to much more nuanced performances. This isn’t only because acting has evolved, but because film technology has changed, and film techniques have evolved as well. All of this translates into creating a vastly different style of acting than what was present in film at the beginning.

Originally, film acting was the same as that seen on stage. The cast had gotten used to bigger-than-life actions on the theatrical stage, where such actions were necessary so that the entire audience could see the action; each audience deserved to see what was going on, from those just a few feet away to those hundreds of feet away. The way that films were produced, helped with the static camera in perpetual long shot. This no doubt ensured that both those in front of and behind the camera came from theatrical traditions where they gotten used to that school of acting.

This was to change as cameras were made more mobile and the lenses were able to focus on different kinds of shots. This meant that the director could film as closely as he wanted to without interfering with the actors; that closeness meant that the grandiose gestures that worked so well on the stage were no longer needed to make film work. Anther form of freedom that occurred was that the make-up and costumes didn’t to need be in broad strokes either; those personnel could concentrate on making the costumes and make-up as detailed as they wanted to. This meant that the cast could concentrate on acting itself rather than being as loud as necessary, which lead to more nuanced acting.

As the directors learned to appreciate the different kind of shots available to them, they also learned that they could edit the footage. This helped on two different levels. Not only did it allow the formation of a new visual language, but that they weren’t limited to one shot. The new language of close-up and medium shots allowed for a more realistic style of acting, as the cast could do small gestures on the screen that were more effective than the large stage gestures, making performances highly effective. Editing allowed the stars to concentrate fully on the scene or even shot, allowing them to put all of their energy into that rather than having to worry about the entire film; that made the shots much more intense.

When sound was added to features, it meant that some of the theatrical techniques were brought back. Actors and actresses could no longer afford to be mute, and had to actually speak. Some actors thus fell out of prominence as their voices didn’t fit their appearance; most famous of these was Rudolph Valentino, whose high-pitched voice did not match his handsome appearance, and so he was forced out of Hollywood. They needed to learn how to enunciate, as well as how to breath so that the microphones didn’t pick it up. Although they didn’t need the projection skills of a theatrical actor or actress, they did need some degree of mimicry to allow for accents and a wider range of characters. The old voice training combined with the new acting techniques made for some formidable performances.

Overall, the advances in technology have led to a number of advances in skill as well. The stars in Hollywood have had to familiarize themselves with the technology involved with filming as well as learning a slightly different set of skills; after all, they still need to be able to act, and a lot of the skills are highly relevant to film acting. However, they do need to learn some other skills as well, as acting in front of a camera is a far different endeavor than the theater. It should be interesting what other skills actors and actresses picks up as technology continues to advance and more options become available to the craft.



Actors Bringing Themselves to the Screen

Actors are no strangers to playing a multitude of different characters, but some have done some outside the box work by simply playing the role of themselves. Whether it’s a biographical work or just simply a guest appearance, it’s no stretch for them to play their own personal character, and it often reminds us that they really are just regular people.

Howard Stern had the honor of playing himself in the 1997 hit Private Parts which chronicles his life story. The movie covers his life from boyhood until he made his big break into the industry. While he was too old to play himself as a boy, the majority of the movie focuses on his adult life and he was the star of the show. There was no stretch to find accuracy in the character portrayal, he nailed himself as only Howard Stern can. While he may not be the next academy award winner, he knew the character inside and out and was able to really let the audience know who he was and how he struggled. It also brought a more personable side to his larger than life persona that he has made his fortune on.

Bill Murray has been a well-loved comedic actor for decades. With big name movies like Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, and Lost in Translation under his belt, it’s no wonder he has been the winner of prestigious awards such as the Emmys, Independent Spirit Awards, BAFTA Awards, and Golden Globes. From his stints with SNL, running from 1977 until 1993, he has played numerous characters as well as himself. His unique comedic styles and quirky nature have allowed him to not only bring life to fictional characters but simply being Bill Murray has offered him numerous opportunities in film and television. He played himself in major motion pictures like Space Jam, Coffee and Cigarettes, Zombieland, and most recently the Netflix original A Very Murray Christmas. His one liners and riffs not only on himself but life in general have brought him huge amounts of fame, and his latest Christmas special included some of Hollywood’s A-List actors like George Clooney. His calm nature and laid back style allows him to bring his own take to everything, and playing himself gives us a peek at what a fun and unique man he truly is.

Matt LeBlanc made himself a household name when he played the character Joey on the hit television series Friends. Since the show ended he has played numerous roles, including a Friends spinoff titled Joey, but he has recently found true success once again by simply being Matt LeBlanc in Episodes. While the character is based loosely on Matt LeBlanc, it’s more of a funhouse mirror version. It’s still a fictional character that has been created around the real man. The character in episodes has no realization that his actions have consequences, he’s a bit of a lost soul, unlike the real Matt LeBlanc who has things a bit more together. The role appealed to him in a unique way. He had become somewhat reclusive for five years after his daughter had a brush with a serious illness. He turned down many acting opportunities, and only decided to listen to the Episodes job because the call came from former Friends co-worker David Crane. While some say he has backed himself into a corner by taking the role on the hit Showtime series, LeBlanc feels like if he is simply known for being Joey from Friends and being himself post Joey, so be it. Considering he’s had an irrefutably successful career, this interesting take on himself might be the next role of a lifetime.

With an acting career that started when he was a child, Neil Patrick Harris has surprised audiences over the last decade with a complete reinvention of himself. He created a comedic niche for himself when he began playing the role of Barney on How I Met Your Mother, and with it came a slew of fun and quirky roles including a larger than life version of himself in the Harold & Kumar stoner comedies. What you see in the films isn’t exactly who Harris is in reality, but the over the top version that gives him a chance to showcase not just his gifted acting chops, but to poke fun at himself and give the gift of laughter. While he isn’t so out of control in real life, making people smile is something he truly loves, making this portrayal more accurate than it seems.

Actors are often given praise for their ability to bring life to imaginary characters, but these men have been gifted with even more talent. Bringing your true self to life and keeping it entertaining, and often with the ability to poke fun at your own expense is a talent that not all actors can claim. These men have proved their talents stretch far beyond just memorizing lines.



The Ever Growing Popularity of 3-D Movies

The popularity of 3D movies has gone up and down since their inception. Most early 3D movies were of the action packed variety with objects appearing to be flying out into the audience. Moviegoers would scream and duck and laugh while wearing funny looking glasses. But audiences got tired of seeing the same type of genre in 3D and the movies were grainy with loud sounds when there was action but so quiet when the actors spoke that it was hard to hear them. And then there was the eye strain, eye fatigue, headaches and even motion sickness associated with 3D films.

Making early 3D movies was complicated and expensive. Using 2 cameras, manipulating the film, manipulating the lighting and those first 3D glasses. With the advances in computer science, digital surround-sound technology, movie screen sizes, and the use of HD cameras eliminating the need for film, 3D movies have become more cost effective and easier to produce. They now have a higher resolution, greater brightness, and high dynamic range. These advances, along with more movie genres being made in 3D, accounts for the resurgence.

With the advancement of 3D technology and producers making more 3D movies in more genres, moviegoers are flocking to movie theaters. As stated early 3D movies were mostly horror or action packed. Now we’ve documentaries, love stories, and children’s animated movies being made in 3D. This change helps to open the 3D market to more moveigoers.

It’s kind of like playing video games. All ages play them. It makes us feel like we’re part of the action because we’re in control of the controllers. We bob and weave with the action of video games. We holler and yell at the TV screen. We can get that same experience when watching 3D movies.

The experience a 3D movie gives audiences includes instant gratification along with immersing the moviegoer in the  experience. It gives them a heighten sense of realism and an increased sensory experience. The depth of the movie brings them emotionally closer to the movie itself. Instead of sitting back in the dark and watching a movie, the moviegoer feels that they’re part of the movie.

Let’s face it, we all want to be in the movies and we don’t mind paying a little extra for the extra entertainment 3D movies give us.
