The Structure of Romantic Comedies

A romantic comedy is a type of film that mixes half love tale and half fun/funny story, however it seems like nowadays film producers aim for more humour instead of love, to make the film top the charts.

– True love

– There’s an individual out there just for you; you simply attempt your finest to discover him/her and you will experience true love

– Only true love and beat all challenges

Because sense, often romantic comedy likewise have a plot story about how individuals in various generation connect to each other, for instance, the play in between adult and kids in the motion picture Sleepless in Seattle. The author of romantic comedies, for that reason, needs to not concentrate on exactly what is popular now; rather needs to consider the method they will recuperate audience’s memories about their excellent time with the film.

So where should the plot of romantic comedy film be stemmed from?

First of all, motion picture manufacturers must choose from any classic story. The excellent story that appropriate for making film must have extremely strong pattern and structure in regards to informing individuals exactly what’s going on.

As pointed out that despite the fact that romantic comedy film nowadays have the tendency to concentrate on humour side instead of remarkable side, however being concentrate on remarkable side likewise still essential. So the film manufacturer must consider about the balance in between significant side and humour side which need to be concentrate on.

In some cases the story that they pick for make motion picture is really remarkable focused, so it is rather tough to place any of humour scene into the story, and even they lastly made it, the story might not be very successful. The love or remarkable side itself does not need to be really concentrate on the outcome, for instance, does not concentrate on the outcome whether the person will lastly get wed with the lady. In stead, the story ought to concentrate on the method they inform story. The story will be a lot more intriguing if motion picture maker have the ability to place humour scene into the story to make it more amusing. For instance, like the Bridget Jone’s Diary film is an excellent example in my viewpoint. The story goes precisely in exactly what she wrote in her journal regardless to the outcome or exactly what is going to resemble at the end. Audiences were really pleased and nobody appreciate how the motion picture ends, since they get adequate both humour and love throughout the story.

In summary excellent romantic comedy must have appropriate balance in between love side and humour side. Appealing romantic comedy motion picture does not need to more than happy ending, it’s everything about how the story goes and whether you will place humour scene into the film.

The Warner Brothers Make Noise

Hollywood was an appealing location for the early filmmakers to settle, filled with great weather condition, orange and lemon trees. For manufacturers who owed loan on obtained video camera devices if a financial institution followed them, they might conceal amongst the trees. It was a tough company loaded with causalities and took a pirate’s mindset to make it through.

The majority of the studio heads were from bad backgrounds, with minimal English abilities and always remembered their youth or an individual small. Consisted of were Jack, Harry, Albert and Sam, the 4 Warner Brothers from Youngstown, Ohio. They had actually started with revealing motion pictures off the side of a camping tent in Youngstown, obtaining all the chairs from the regional undertaker. Whenever there was a funeral service in Youngstown, they needed to offer all the chairs back and the movie clients were required to stand.

As a young boy Jack Warner wanted to be a vocalist and a comic. His siblings, acknowledging his absence of skill advised him to sing in the camping tent when they desired the audience to leave. He was later on encouraged that the cash was not in carrying out, it remained in paying entertainers. Amongst the stars that would be under contract to him would be Betty Davis, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Errol Flynn.

The quiet days were a battle for Warner Bros. Rin Tin Tin, a German shepherd that inning accordance with his promotion was born in a trench in World War I, was their greatest star. Brave as he may have been on the screen, he showed to be, like lots of stars, peevish personally. Jack Warner took the pet dog on a promotion trip.

Aiming to go far on their own, the 4 siblings got terrific promotion by revealing that the distinguished opera tenor Caruso would be showing up from Italy to make a movie for them. They paid him 25,000 dollars then put him in a quiet motion picture.

The movie studios had the innovation to make talking movies years prior to they made them. Among the reasons that they withstood the concept was that they didn’t wish to run the risk of losing their abroad market. Stars like Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford seldom ever had a flop as their movies were shown around the world and understood no language barriers. However in 1926 the quiet movies faced their greatest competitors with a brand-new gadget called the radio. As motion picture presence diminished the studio heads shut their eyes and pretended the radio was not there. However the Warners lead by the enthusiastic Sam, chose to forge ahead and aim to conserve their sinking studio by try out motion picture noise.

They then obtained the rights to The Jazz Singer, a popular play about a boy who had a gorgeous voice and is used a Broadway profession versus the desires of his Old World Jewish dad.

The sound transformation was under way!

Now everybody is loafing talking!” One resourceful star was worked with for one day’s work. When the director wasn’t looking he let a lot of crickets loose on the set.

Unbeatable Netflix Flight Experience 2018

Oftentimes, traveling to distant places makes us feel uncomfortable and tired, especially when we come across long hours of flight. This is perhaps one of the reasons why airline companies provide passengers something to enjoy or simply kill the time during the long hours that passengers settle on that couch.

Netflix Onboard

Current airline carrier amenities

Airline companies provide music audio and movie files to keep the passengers entertained. However, apart from this, people seem to be prone to boredom and will truly appreciate the airline who is more attentive to their entertainment needs.

While most of us viewers rely on internet streaming with NetFlix, having no wi-fi or internet connection for a, say, 7 hours flight, is a struggle. Netflix then attempts to expand streaming access for their avid viewers by getting airline carriers as partners this 2018 to share low-bandwidth mobile streaming technology and improve in-flight wifi speeds. This was reported during the last APEX Expo 2017 as reported by Variety.

The proposal includes the airlines offering low-cost Wi-fi, travelers will now have the opportunity to get updated to NetFlix series such as The Crown and Stranger Things and more exciting videos which I could say are must-watches. These paying members, who used Netflix’s online point-of-sale system, which is similar to RedFynn’s interface, get the upgrade opportunity automatically. However, non-NetFlix members will be able to enjoy the said opportunity by signing up for a 30-day free trial subscription. A great way to get more subscribers for Netflix! This will allow the passengers to access video streaming straight into their personal devices which is pretty much a big deal for the short and long period of flights. Apart from this, the airline carriers could save a high percentage of bandwidth cost on the partnership.

NetFlix Proposal and visions on 2018

This offer is not really new as Netflix also offers a partnership with an airline back in 2015 on a NetflixOnboard deal that offers quite similar features to passengers for video streaming. Right now, NetFlix provides a feature for the subscribers to download the video series without a Wi-Fi connection. This was launched last 2016 which allows users to download their favorite movies and shows to be and can be viewed offline.

Right now, NetFlix also partnered with a couple of Airlines especially those traveling longer flights as their passengers are more likely the first to get restless because of long hours flight. NetFlix’s partnership with more airline companies is now giving NetFlix subscribers an expectant time of anticipation for next years’ flight experience.

Watch out for the Bellas as they never fail to give a twist to every song cover featured in Pitch Perfect sequels such as “The Sign” and “Flashlight”.Pitch PerfectThere could be nothing more fun than watching a movie in the cinema with your loved ones. This year, one of the most anticipated movies is Pitch Perfect 3 “LAST CALL PITCHES”. It will definitely brighten up your day as the first trailer was finally released in public.

The first movie trailer shows a different focus of the story that will give viewers a jolt of excitement.  Unlike Pitch Perfect 1 & 2, Bella’s mortal enemy, the Treble Maker, is still out of sight in the trailer but a glimpse of new bands that will push the Bellas to their limits is inevitable. More possible rivals are shown in the trailer that will challenge their bond as sisters and friends.

After the first trailer of Pitch Perfect 3, we see that they have not just perfectly mastered the global standard for music and humor but even in explosive action albeit not really expected from this type of movie.

Who is starring in this movie?

Starring are the following: Anna  Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Shelley Regner, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Kelley Jakle, and Chrissie Fit.  Ruby Rose from Orange is the New Black, incidentally. And of course, the pitch will never be perfect without Rebel Wilson. Also starring are John Lithgow, John Michael Higgins, Elizabeth Banks, Matt Lanter, DJ Khaled and Trinidad James. The movie is definitely a roller coaster of music sessions and action, balanced with the humorous exchanges between the characters.

Will this be the last one?

The movie, which will most likely be the Final Stand of a Trilogy, covers the life of the Barden Bellas after leaving university life and making their way to the real world. But it seems that first love never dies, so apart from striving to survive with their own individual lives, they still desired to sing with the rest of the girls.

This then brought the Bellas in a comeback reunion in an entertainment tour for the troops to be able to sing once again with each other. Their acapella is still on its awesome perfection and there are songs to watch out which could be another soundtrack hit in Holywood. The humor of Fat Amy is still undeniably effective and her fearless dive, landing face flat on the boat is totally hilarious.

The “behind the scenes” of the movie also gives us a glimpse of how emotional it is for the cast, especially during the final moments of the film. Could this be really the last for the Barden Bellas? Who knows? But one thing is for sure, this movie sequel truly gives the world a new perspective towards music in the world of acapella.

Expect another hilarious, terrific and fabulous movie experience before closing the year 2017. See you in cinemas on the 22nd of December!



Wisdom from the Wolf of Wall Street

This 2013 movie is arguably one of the best movies about business and Wall Street success in recent times. Well,  there’s Social Network and the Pursuit of “Happyness” to contend with. But seriously, The Wolf of Wall Street does pack a punch even as we watched it recently again on a rented copy. Of course, Leonardo Caprio is definitely at his best here but then again, the story itself can be described as wild, witty and full of wisdom indeed. And it’s based on the true-to-life rags-to-riches story of Jordan Belfort.

Leonardo Di Caprio as Jordan Belfort

So who was Jordan Belfort again?

Jordan Belfort was the founder of Stratton Oakmont, best known for its boiler room operations which marketed worthless stocks and defrauded countless investors. Eventually,  the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) and now the Financial Industry Regulation Authority caught up on its anomalous transactions and eventually shut it down whilst filing money laundering and securities fraud against Jordan and his cohorts.

Those were the more recent days at Stratton Oakmont. However, it can be fancily recalled that this firm used to be the biggest over-the-counter firm for trading stocks in the US during the 1980s up until the 1990s.  In fact, it led the IPO of Steve Madden, the popular shoe manufacturing company, among around 30 others.

Interestingly they were able to do this for around 7 years accumulating revenues of up to US$3 billion (source: Wikipedia) at that time and employing around 1000 stockbrokers. Equally interesting is the founder who was just an ordinary young aspiring individual before he became the high-flying limo-riding hotshot that he was.

Jordan has a degree in Biology and was originally planning to be a dentist.  He set up a meat and seafood business earlier in his life but it eventually failed as well. His unprecedented detour to becoming one of the most iconic fraudsters in the history of the United States is truly worth knowing for learning’s sake.

What can we learn from this movie?

Personally, I learned to value integrity over luxury. It’s also important to take a good, long-term view of your actions – business-related or otherwise – and its consequences. And finally, I learned how important it is to exercise due diligence and do our homework especially when making business decisions; facts and not emotions shall be our guide.

From the standpoint of the regulators, it can be learned that a scam like this can happen right under their noses. Thus, they need to be more proactive and increase their oversight and regulation on these so-called trading companies. They, too, have to clean their ranks because, most of the time, the enemy is closer than they think. Additionally, their relationship with the investor community should also be cultivated and strengthened to increase reporting and compliance checks.

Developing countries like Vietnam, Philippines and Brazil should especially guard against money laundering, financial scams and deceptive marketing. Up and coming facilities should be controlled, monitored and regularly audited especially as these investment activities are not yet mainstream for these specific nations. Perpetrators of embezzlement and defrauding activities should be penalized swiftly and harshly when proven. And finally, robust processes and policies should be put in places such as increasing awareness of anti-fraud tools and practices.

Advent of EMVs and Merchant Services

The use of EMVs, merchant processing systems, strong user encryption and proper awareness can lead to a safer business and investment environment. If we are to minimize our risks, we need to be up-to-date with technologies that address the loopholes in our business and workplaces. We should also be vigilant in reporting personal incidences of defrauding. That said, we hope to see the last of Bernard Madoff (who caused between $18 billion to 50 billion investment losses from his Ponzi scheme), Jordan Belfort and their likes.

Incidentally, Jordan turned a new leaf now. He has been actively teaching and mentoring sales and business people on motivation, ethics, sales skills, and entrepreneurship.  He often says that the greatest regret he has in life is losing people’s money.

Well, yeah right! Hey, at least, it made one heck of a good movie. Popcorn, anyone?
