How to Write a Quality Movie Review

Writing movie reviews can be a great hobby. With enough work, it can even become a great profession. However, writing a movie review can be harder than you might think. Fortunately, there are a number of steps one can take to make high-quality, interesting movie reviews that people will enjoy reading and be interested in reading more of your work. In this article, I will discuss some basic parts of a movie review that will make them both informative and interesting.

The first thing to realize is that no one really cares about your opinion. Nobody really wants to hear about what you like or dislike. After all, they like and dislike things, too. Whatever you do, talk about the qualities of the movie, not about your own sentiments. Movie reviews, after all, are not polls.

On to the techniques…

Talk About the Direction: Talk about the direction of a particular film. You should speak about the choices that the director made with respect to music, lighting and how the performances work together. Don’t forget to name the director of the film. It’s a good opportunity to link to other reviews for movies by the same director.

Talk About the Actors: Pick one or two of the actors in the film and discuss their performances. Who really drew you into their characters and why? Who best brought out the themes of the film using the acting? Was there anyone who stood out for the wrong reasons?

Talk About the Appearance of the Film: This is a general category, but you can talk about the use of color, of sets, of cinematography or even of special effects. Films, after all, are a visual medium, so you should discuss how that medium is used. You can even discuss things like the use of shadow, special camera tricks and so forth.

Talk About the Themes: Films are about something. What was this movie about? Once you’ve discussed the theme, discuss how well the film brought out the theme or any ways that it did the theme a disservice. What did this film have to say about the theme that is better than any other film. Themes are generally what directors are most interested in, so by discussing this, you’ll discuss the film in terms of what the director had in mind.

Compare the Film to Other Films: There are a few ways to do this. First, it’s usually a good idea to comment on how this film compares to other films from the same director, or how the performances of the actors compare to other performances by those actors. When doing this, comment on what is special about this film relative to those by the same artists. Second, you can comment on how it compares to other films with the same basic themes. Does it bring out the same themes in a more insightful way? Is the film re-inventing an already better-invented wheel?

Comment on the Making of the Film: One nice trick when reviewing a movie is to comment on its actual making or even distribution. If a film went over-budget, or if an actor chose this film over another, these facts can be interesting and something readers might not know, even if they’ve seen the film. You can also comment on how it was received at film festivals, if it was originally released there.

Following the above steps will help you write interesting and informative movie reviews that people will actually want to read. Happy viewing!

Blu-Ray – The Ultimate HD Movie Watching Experience

Blu-Ray is the latest technology for optical discs, and will probably replace the previous extensively used technologies such as DVD, DVD-RAM, DVD-R and DVD-RW. It was collectively produced by major consumer electronics and media suppliers (including Dell, Apple, HP, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Samsung etc) and the Blu-Ray Disc Association. The main purpose was to record, rewrite and playback HD movies, while also boosting storage capacity.

Blu-rays apply a different type of technology than preceding disc formats. DVDs and the like use red-laser technology to read and write data, while this new format relies on blue-violet laser – hence the name of Blu-Ray, often misspelled as Blue-Ray. The key advantage that this blue-violet laser offers is that the laser spot is more focused. This allows for tighter packaging of data, thus growing the amount of data that can be stored.

The main competitors of Blu-Rays are HD DVDs. However, these last ones can only hold 15 GB of data, while Blu-Ray disc can store up to 25 GB. With the development of 3D movies, Blu-Rays will most likely become more popular. You can write a whole 3D movie at full 1080p resolution on a single Blu-Ray disc. A good player can then pump the data to your TV screen without any problems.

Other things that Blu-Ray can provide include improved inter-connectivity, thus allowing for more complex games or educational materials, as well as more sophisticated video options. For instance, you can have picture-in-picture viewing for behind-the-scenes or comments while watching movies. You also have access to the menu while watching the film. Also, many Blu-rays have an archived version of the movie that you can watch on your iPod or other portable device. Another new feature is BD-Live. If you link your Blu-Ray player to the Internet, you can use this feature to access movie talks, forums and other interactive content. Disney has announced plans to include BD-Live on most upcoming titles.

Blu-Rays were launched in 2006, and thus far they have attained a penetration rate of about 10%. In the near future, Blu-Ray will most likely become the common technology for high-definition televisions and home theater. Because of their enhanced storage capacity, movies stored on Blu-Ray discs have better picture and sound quality. Though they are still more expensive than HD DVDs, this is likely to change in the future, making them the most convenient choice for home entertainment.

Blu-Ray is the next step in home entertainment. A few of this year’s famous movies available in Blu-Ray include Avatar, Lost – complete series, Sherlock Holmes, Africa’s Lost Eden, Alice in Wonderland, Zombieland and The Princess and the Frog. Most of the upcoming titles on Blu-Ray are family and kid’s movies. So get yourself some 3D glasses and spend some fun family time watching the newest and best movies on Blu-Ray!

How to Talk Dirty To a Guy and Sound Really Sexy!

Talking dirty is sexy! Trust me when I say so. I have been with my boyfriend for close to six years now. Any modern woman should embrace dirty talk in their relationship. One amazing aspect of talking dirty is that any women can do it.

Most women would without a doubt love to talk dirty to their men. This makes you ask, what is dirty talk anyway? You may have heard that this makes sex feel hotter and sexier. How do you start talking dirty and how do you get better at it? Unlike what most women think, it doesn’t necessarily involve phrases that sound like they were taken right out a pornographic movie.

Talking dirty needs to be natural and once you have figured out what it’s about. Regardless of how long you’ve been in a relationship, learning how to talk dirty will definitely spice up your sex life.

The best way is to sound sexy is just talk. If you tune your thoughts to think dirty, what will come out of your mouth will be dirty as well. When your man likes the kind of words you use, you will like it too. So if you’re interested in knowing more about the art of talking dirty and how to sound really sexy? Here’s what you should know:

Let your sexual prowess take over when you’re horny… This is where it starts. If you want your man to respond, you have to tell him when you’re in the mood for sex. Let your man know about your wants since it’s much easier to let them out once you’re aroused.

Assume it was a one-night stand… Most of the time; we have one night stands with guys we like or have a crush on. You’re most likely to give your all sexually with a one-time stand. Picture your guy as that one night fling you’ve always wanted to have and say all the naughty things you would have said.

Do it like you’re having an affair… Assume that you and your man are having an affair. What would be the sexiest way to express how you’re feeling? Dirty talk of course! Fantasize about the passionate moments. What would you say to him if it was an affair?

Describe your thoughts… If you want to get a man in the mood, try whispering some naughty phrases in his ear. Be sure that you do this only when you get time with him alone. Don’t forget to moan and sigh.

You don’t have to speak a word sometimes. Moaning and sighing is a form of dirty talk that you can use to sound overly sexy in bed. The little “aah” or “ooh” sounds when he gives you a deep thrust for instance will show him that you appreciate what he is doing to you besides making him turned on as well.

Don’t trash talk… Dirty talk doesn’t involve trash talking. It’s all about using dirty phrases to turn on your guy while sounding sexy at the same time. You can’t go calling him a dog for instance. You can only talk trash to a guy if he is really comfortable with it.
