Citizen Kane is an iconic movie that changed the way Classical Hollywood cinema was viewed. This film had such a high expectation around it when it was first released in 1941. Citizen Kane was surrounded with various rumours of the movie being based on the real life story of the famous newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. However it was never clarified by Orson Welles that the movie was actually about Hearst so the movie could not just be branded a biographical movie. The genre of this film was hard for film critics and viewers to decipher.
The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book. The fact is that no matter how well the movie covers the book, there will always be some noticeable difference, as Fitzgerald’s words from the book paint’s a vivid picture of the scenes, that it’s come to life in the mind of its reader. Therefore, even with a perfect design, cast, and performance, any movie version can only disappoint. One of the biggest difference can be seen in the theme representation of the American Dream. While the movie shows the achievement of the American dream, the book shows its failure.
As such, in the 90's the company started to divide into two groups: a more niche-concerned and a hit-driven centric wing. For a studio, which was producing and distributing independent low-budget projects there was no other choice, than to work in a market niche which included young people, college students and film lovers. This market group must have been more interested in dialogue, story line and experiment than in camera work or special effects. But at the same time aggressive marketing campaign was working both at niche and mass-market audiences. With the word Sex in the title it caused slight shock and interest, though in the actual film there is no sex scene shown.
The presence of fandom culture cannot be denied because according to the book Cultural Economy of Fandom, “fandom is a common feature of the popular culture in industrial societies” (Fiske 1992, 30). Scholars have struggled in assigning a general academic description for fandom. Fiske’s study suggested that fandom has something to do with cultural formations. The idea of relating fandom with cultural formations led Fiske to define the fans or the member of the fandom as productive, active, and participatory. Fandom is usually associated with the cultural taste of the subordinate group that are disempowered by the ruling class in the value system.
Lucas no longer holds ownership in Lucasfilms because he sold the rights to Disney. This has opened many doors for more Star Wars movies to be made, and the legacy of what Lucas created to continue. The overwhelming success of Lucas’s career falls on the creation of ILM. It is a company that assisted him in the making of most if not all his movies, and is a big part of most movies that require special effects. It is a company that will continue to prosper, and will not go away when Lucas is no longer apart of the industry.
Why do creators spend money to make movies? Movies are vital to our society’s sense of entertainment. The movie production companies make a lot of money, but they also provide a platform for people to express their ideas in a film. However, many movie companies decide to churn out movies that are underperforming. As of recently, many remakes of old movies and sequels have lacked the rich content that movies need to succeed.
Hail the human race, but I never knew a person can gyrate their body part of their body with such vigor and dedication such as I see today. I doubt if whether Elvis Presley were to wake up today he would do a gig with Justin Bieber or Shakira and go home celebrating how they fired up the place. Or would he go home complaining how the song lacked harmony, or they were too synthetic or lacked a particular instrument? I don’t for a second doubt whether The Beatles and Lady Gaga would find common ground when it comes to rebellion and controversy, but would share the same platform. Disappointingly, this new crop of musician will always find a way to get inspired by a Diana Ross, a Michael Jackson, or an Elvis Presley.
Multilingualism in films The presence of several languages in fiction is also nothing new: literary multilingualism can be traced back to the Middle Ages (Delabastita, Grutman 14). Before the 1980s, as a result of the mentioned above monolingual ideal, multilingualism in literature was however shed in a negative light and was seen as “an unconventional domain of study” (Ibid 11). Awareness and research in the area of multilingualism then started to rise and allowed it to be considered a legitimate subject. In an era of increasing globalisation, multilingualism permeates daily life and is to be found in a wide range of fields such as in opera, songs, quotations, the theatre and in films (Meylaerts and Serban 204). Both European and Hollywood films requiring the audience to deal with communication in more than one language emerged at the same time as cinema, in the early 1930s (Heiss 209).
