Flat Screen Televisions Vs Going To The Cinema

images7

Years ago, when cinema first became popular, for a lot of people it was the only way for them to see movies, because most of them didn’t have their own televisions. The thing is though, cinema has always had a much better quality viewing experience than home televisions, so it has remained the ultimate way to experience a movie.

The Invention of Video Tapes

For a long time, the one problem with both cinema and TV is that you needed to watch a film at a specific time. With the invention of home video systems such as VHS and Betamax, movie fans were able to either record films from the TV or rent films from a video library. However, there was still the problem of quality, as cinema was still a far superior experience than watching a video at home.

The Rise of DVDs

Part of the quality issue was dramatically improved with the invention of the DVD. DVD meant that anyone could watch very high quality digital video at home. Unlike VHS tapes for example, DVDs didnt wear out or degrade over time, as long as you didnt get the discs scratched. From the 1990’s onwards, DVDs became extremely popular amongst movie fans. The only problem was, unless you had an extremely large TV screen and a very expensive sound system, you still wouldn’t get the same experience as the cinema.

The Experience of Home Cinema

Nowadays, the true home cinema experience is becoming much more of a reality for many people, as they buy large widescreen TVs and high quality speakers. For example, with a plasma TV screen of 50 inches or more, and being sat closer to the screen than you would be in a cinema, youre going to get a very cinematic feel. And you wont miss having someone sat behind you who wont stop talking through every scene.

Reasons to Visit the Cinema

However, even with home cinema quality jumping forwards in leaps and bounds, dont you think theres still something missing? Theres just something about actually going out to the cinema. It gives you a reason to spend time with your friends and experience something together. And lets face it: in all honesty, the experience at home really isnt quite as good as the full blown cinema experience, is it?

Why You Should Still Stay at Home Instead

The only problem with visiting the cinema is that it costs you more money than it does to just stay at home with a DVD. But also, when you’re at home, you can fit your movie watching around the other things you want to do. You can also eat your own food. Just relax and watch your favourite movie while eating your dinner.

Cambodian Documentary Wins Cannes Prize for Innovative Cinema

images18

CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.

Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.

For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.

The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.

The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.

Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.

It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.

Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

The non-professional actors of La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), a film about three young Guatemalans trying to cross the Mexico-U.S. border from director Diego Quemada-Diez won an award for best cast.

Home cinema systems and their rise in popularity

images14

In the not too distant past, watching a film was a proper social activity, with the only possible way of doing so being to actually go to the cinema. However with the introduction of technology that is constantly being developed, it seemed inevitable that this would not remain the same.

Firstly, there were VCRs, yes that’s right, though they are obsolete now there once was a time when these were the height of technology and allowed consumers to rent, buy or even record films and view them in the comfort of their own homes. Then followed DVD players – these gave us better quality and eliminated the hassle of rewinding and fast forwarding and it was good, but it seemed there were still factors missing if you were to truly replicate the -cinema experience’.

The huge screens provided at the cinema were undeniably an essential factor in the experience, and certainly the TVs available when VCRs were around would have paled in comparison. Not only did the TVs have smaller screens but the speakers were also of poor quality and issues with the screen sizes and aspect ratios also proved to be problematic.

Nevertheless, all of this outdated technology, though left behind, has proved to be an essential stepping-stone for what was to follow, the home cinema. Yes, it seems that now the technology is available, more and more people are opting for the home cinema experience, transforming their living rooms into movie theatres. Watching films at home does seem to have its advantages; for instance, it’s often quieter and more convenient than going to actual theatre. So, what do you need to set up your home cinema system?

1)Though it may seems obvious, a good starting point is a large television. When you see a film in a theatre the screen envelops your field of view, allowing you to become completely emerged in the film. A TV with a big screen will help to imitate this. 2)Having a high quality telly is also essential. At the cinema we are always presented with huge high definition images, the detail and clarity allows for a greater sense of realism. Also, if a large screen provides low quality images it will accentuate the poor quality of the picture. 3)Finally, we come to the sound side of the system. Although it may not seem like it is of great importance, in actual fact a good sound system can really help to bring a film to life. When watching a film at the cinema,, the sound propagates from numerous places. The music, sound effects and dialogue do not just come from the screen but completely surround you. Surround sound and surround panning can really put you -inside’ the movie by creating a 3 dimensional soundscape.

If you’re looking for a new TV to start your home cinema with, why not try looking online for Panasonic LCD TVs and Samsung LCD TVs?

A Short Inception Of Hollywood Cinema Techniques

images1

The first hollywood cinema movie cameras were attached directly on to the head of its tripod or alternative support, with just the crudest sort of levelling tools provided, in the manner of the still-camera tripod heads of the hollywood period. The earliest movie cinema cameras were hence resolutley static during the course of filming, and hence the very first equipment movements were thanks to fixing a camera on a moving truck. The original documented, well before cinema and hollywood, of these was movie shot by a Lumire cameraman from the rear carraige of a train departing Jerusalem in 1896, and by 1898 there were lotsof cinema movies shot inside moving trains, Hollywood was beconing. Despite listed under the confusing heading of panoramas in the sales catalogues of the time, those movies shot immediately forward from in front railway engine were usually referred to as phantom rides.

Sometime in 1897, Robert W. Paul had the very first notable moving camera mount manufactured to put 1on top of|on} a tripod, so that he could track the passing parade of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in unique uninterrupted cinema shot. The device had the equipment set on a vertical axis that could be moved with a worm gear driven by cranking the handle, so Paul placed it on public sale the next year. Films made with such a “panning” camera were also known as panoramas in hollywood listings of the earliest decade of cinema.

The standard setup for newy cinema studios in Hollywood was provided by the studio which Georges Mlis erected in May 1891. It had a glass roof and three glass walls made after the model of large studios for static photography, it was also fitted with flimsy cotton drapes that were stretched below the roof to eliminate the bright ray of the sun on brilliant days. The natural overall light devoid of real shadows that this setup delivered, and which also happens naturally on moderately overcast days, became the standard for cinema movie lighting in hollywood film studios for the next decade.

Unique within all the short hollywood cinema movies priduced by the Edison studio, which recorded pieces of the shows of variety performers for its Kinetoscope cinema viewing devices, was The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots. The film portrayed a person dressed as the queen putting her head on the execution block in front of a small gathering of bystanders in Elizabethan apparel.

When Vijay first released his movie Singam little did he know that he would have to change the name to Villu as the name Singam had already been taken by the director Hari. It led to much confusion and gossip in the Tamil film industry.
Earlier on Vijay planned to use the name Puli but that got taken away as well. Vijay hopes to make a comeback with his next movie Vettaikaran.
Meanwhile this is Suryas hour. Everything he touches turns to gold. His movies dubbed into Telugu earn crores and crores of money for their producers.
Suriya is teaming up with Hari to act as a police officer in his 25th film after Vaaranam Aayiram and Ayan.
The plot of Singam is about smuggling activities that are taking place in Rameshwaram. After Khaaka Khaaka this is the second time Surya is playing a cop and like all of Haris films this one is also expected to have the right mix of sentiments and comedy.
For Hari also this will be the second police story after Saamy with Vikram. Earlier on Hari had directed Surya in Aaru (2005) and Vel (2007). Haris last movie was Seval with Bharath.

Dehradun Cinema Pvr ( Silver City, Glitz)

images19

No new technology or device can replicate the joy of watching a movie on a 70mm screen. The silver screen not only lights up a dark theatre but also brings new light to many peoples life. In India, there is a frenzied craze for movies. When a Shah Rukh Khan or a Rajnikant film brings a larger than life character on screen, the four corners of the country unite to cheer them. If cricket is considered the religion of India, the Indian film industry is definitely the heart of all Indians! With the advent of newer technologies, the joy of watching movie has increased manifold. Multiplexes have not only dotted the metropolitans but have also ushered in new aspirations and spirit into many second tier cities. Dehradun is one such city which got a new lease of life with the advent of multiplex cinemas such as PVR.
PVR (Priya Village Roadshow) Cinemas is the largest cinema chain in India having its presence in many cities across the country. PVR Cinemas started the first multiplex in the country in Saket, Delhi thus bringing in a paradigm shift to the film viewing experience. Over more than a decade of its existence, the growth of PVR Cinemas has been exceptional and it has redefined movie watching with high class seating, state-of-the-art screens and audio-visual systems. A quick search on Dehradun business listings shows that the Himalayan city has two PVR theatres- Glitz Cinema and SilverCity. Both the movie theatres have raised the benchmark of movie theatres in Dehradun.
The rise of new age cinema theatres is the result of the growth of Dehradun real estate. After it became the capital of a newly formed state craved out of Uttar Pradesh, Dehradun became the epicenter of development in the higher ranges of the Himalayas. Because of its proximity to Delhi, Dehradun has fast experienced change in the form of more investment in real estate, in IT, education etc. Dehradun schools were always known for their standard and excellence and with newer players entering the market, the competition just got stiffer. Due to all these reasons, jobs in Dehradun also saw an up rise with more and more youth staying back home. The result of the growth of Dehradun real estate has also been the growth of malls and movie theatres- two of which are Glitz Cinema and SilverCity.
Both the PVRs boast of excellent infrastructure (something that is new to Doon) and both enhances the movie watching experience. While Glitz Cinemas is located in The City Junction Mall, Near ISBT, Haridwar Bypass Road, Dehradun, SilverCity is located in 542, Rajpur Road, Parsvnath Eleganza Mall, Dehradun.

Zac Efron Stars In 17 Again On Directv Ppv Cinema

images17

Now available on Satellite TV Pay Per View Cinema, the same day its released on DVD, is the teen comedy 17 Again, starring heartthrob Zac Efron.

In the movie, Efron plays Mike O’Donell, a high school basketball star who seems to have everything a college scholarship, popularity, and a beautiful girlfriend. But all of that changes when his girlfriend Scarlett reveals that shes pregnant. Suddenly all of Mikes aspirations are dashed and we fast forward twenty years later. Mike (now played by Matthew Perry) and Scarlett (Leslie Mann) are separated, and Mike is living with his software genius nerd best friend Ned (Thomas Lennon). We also learn that Mikes relationship with his own teenaged children is nonexistent, and his job is at a standstill. Praying for a change after he is passed up for a promotion, Mike meets a mysterious janitor who transforms him back to his glory days and suddenly Mike is 17 (and played by Zac Efron) again.

Posing as a new student named Mark, Mike infiltrates his childrens school and learns things about them that he never knew. He also visits an unsuspecting Scarlett and rediscovers all the things that initially made him fall in love with her. Of course it should come as little surprise to anyone who watches movies that Mike will eventually learn some things about himself that will make him a better husband, a better father, and appreciate life as he never did before.

I saw this movie initially when it was released to theaters in April and I remember thinking Cute, but I could have waited for DVD. Its chock-full of the stereotypes that weve come to expect in these teen comedies (the jock bully, the trio of cheerleader temptresses, the final showdown at the basketball game with that one chance to make the winning basket), but it still works, mostly due to Efrons charms. Now that he is stepping outside of the Disney mold, Efron is proving himself to be much more than just a pretty face. He shows some surprising dramatic chops here (most notably during the speech he gives to a judge in a courtroom at the end) and I think he has a long career ahead of him as an actor in more serious roles. Leslie Mann is somewhat underused, but she is still good here, and I always appreciate seeing her in comedies (she also appeared in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and this summer’s Funny People.)

I think Efron fans will be tempted to give this five stars before they even see it, but if other people give it a chance they will see there is a little more than meets the eye in Efrons talent. 17 Again had heart and it wasnt crass, and I think its a movie the whole family can enjoy. Sometimes a little sugary sweetness is actually kind of endearing.
