Jaws (1975) - Box Office Mojo. IMDB, n.d. Web. 13 Dec. 2016. 159. Although these numbers today are paltry. However, in the mid 70’s, these were huge sums, largely unheard of before. This film started a trend of movie studios releasing their highest projected grossing films in the summer time. The storyline of Jaws may be simple. Wherever there is an abnormally large shark, chaos will undoubtedly ensue. But Spielberg and his team transformed the simplistic idea into a true masterpiece that did what it aimed to do—scare its viewers, and convince them that the fear its subjects felt was completely validated, and that the viewers should feel it too. This could not have been achieved without the team of editors who cut scenes to actually remove the titular character, who was not always functional due to substandard equipment and water. These were replaced with shots from non traditional angles, and more so to music that so perfectly fit the mood of the film that it has since taken on a life of its own in every media since.

    and I couldn't object; how could I? I was out on a double date with the coolest guy in school! He had chosen me- the dorky little 7th grader who they called George the Giant- there was no room for error. "Would he get popcorn? Maybe a Coca-Cola that we would share just like in the commercials" The answer was no, as he approached the clerk he purchased one box of Swedish fish and one movie ticket.

    traumas. The beauty of “The Thing” is that it exemplifies how rich and enticing knowing very little can be to the benefit of the story. It’s a film in which you learn a lot with the characters through theorizing and contextualizing without the necessity of exposition or long-winded explanations that draw you away from the emotional impact it hits you with. For a film famous for its practical effects, they don’t dominate the narrative or overshadow the performances that carry the film’s…

    It’s not fair to get forced to buy food at the movies! I think you should be able to bring your own food to the movie theater. People are getting kicked out of movie theaters all over, just because they are bringing their own food! This is what I think about it. You save a lot more money if you bring your own snacks. You could get a giant bag of pretzels for the same price as 1 pretzel at the movies. One bag of popcorn could be $5.00 at the movie theater and only $2.00 for a box of popcorn at…

In other words, it just doesn’t make any business sense to enter an already volatile market and absorb the unwanted risk. Reducing risk provides a challenge since there are no major investors who would take on the task to expand the industry to a productive source of capital. Competitors look for suitable strategic placement, usually in uncommon geographic regions, and all for the purpose of…
