Hollywood screenwriting is a different animal than traditional screenwriting. A metonym for American movies, Hollywood undoubtedly leads the world production of movies, television serials and commercials. It goes without saying that Hollywood is the home for illustrious celebrities in every walk of cinema life. With the establishment of the first studio in the Tinsel town in early 1900s, the sleepy township was suddenly transformed into the production capital of films. As the center was rearing up to go, hundreds of auxiliary industries mushroomed to provide the much needed support. These included film studios, cinematography, singers, music and movie directors, screenwriters, actors, distributors and other members of the crew.

Movies have always occupied an important part in the lives of people. Not only have they been used as a great source of entertainment for people of all ages, but they have also been used to share thoughts and ideas on a larger platform. Many famous books have been made into movies. Hollywood is the most well-known movie industry, as its movies are shown in countries all over the world. Along with it, almost every country has its own movie industry which produces movies for its population in its own language. However, all over the world, both English and non-English speaking, people enjoy watching Hollywood movies, as they are considered to provide the best entertainment.
With this rising demand for English movies in non-English speaking countries, a large translation industry has arisen. Movie makers find this beneficial, as they are able to sell their movies to a much larger group of people. This translation takes place in two ways; either it is done with subtitles of the dialogues appearing at the bottom of the screen or it is done with overdubs. Many people do not prefer subtitles, as they find it stressful to constantly read the dialogues

There seems to be something about car movies that Americans really like. Have you noticed all the movies that are primarily based on cars? They’re all over! Movies like Bullitt and Smokey and the Bandit are classic ones that have spawned their own generation of car fanatics.
More modern movies such as Gone In 60 Seconds (2001) and Redline have taken a new twist on the plotlines with stealing cars and racing exotic cars. Gone In 60 Seconds (2001) is actually a remake of the 1975 version that spawned the Eleanor (which was originally a yellow ’73 Mustang Fastback). Most people don’t know that. Personally, I enjoy old car movies like this. I like classic cars and I really like the film style of the ’60s and ’70s.
Now our car movies sport street racing and gang activity (The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast and Furious). That isn’t to say, however, that these movies are trash and not worth viewing – quite the opposite, in fact. These are great movies that appeal to a whole different generation of car enthusiasts. Actors like Steve McQueen have
In June 2010 filming began on a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie but will audiences still have the same appetite to see Johnny Depp returning to play Captain Jack Sparrow? The first three Pirates movies made over one billion dollars from North American audiences but it is interesting to note that the second movie in the series, “Dead Man’s Chest”, made the most of all three films. Why is that?
When the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out in 2003 it was a summertime hit. The movie ended its run with an impressive box office figure of $305 million dollars. Realizing that it had a new franchise on its hands, Walt Disney Pictures immediately ordered two more Pirates of the Caribbean movies to be filmed back to back and released one year apart. The first sequel was “Dead Man’s Chest” which came out in the summer of 2006. That movie made $406 million dollars, $100 million more than the first movie did. But when the third movie came out one year later, “At World’s End”, only grossed $309 million dollars, barely $4 million dollars over what the first Pirates movie made. Why?
My husband and I have gone on a date every Friday night, for the last 51 years. Until recently, our date was eating out and going to a movie. It was something we always enjoyed and looked forward to, but the last few years have changed all that. We go to very few movies today. Why? Because of the quality of movies they are now making. Most of them are filled with sex, violence and bad language. I have discovered why God gave us eyelids, fingers and feet. I determine how bad the movie is by how many times I have to close my eyes and put my fingers in my ears and then walk out. There was a time when we would be warned, but now even PG movies have their fair share of bad stuff and the kids movies are getting more evil.
This low quality of entertainment is really sad for us. In the past we would leave a movie feeling happy, even romantic and uplifted. It was our break for the week. Seeing a movie was our relief from the stresses of our life and just a fun thing to do.
Apart of Christmas tree, decorations, parties and gifts, there is something that adds a special atmosphere to the holiday season: Christmas movies.
Almost all adults have sweet memories related to a Christmas movie; a movie that remains favorite and have – sometimes just for a second – a special flavour: the taste of childhood.
We are now adults and know that movies related to Christmas create a fun atmosphere and also teach moral lessons to our children.
When I was a child, the most watched Christmas movies in Belgium were 1950’s American movies (Hollywood style obviously) or French films.
For twenty-five years, our society evolved and the quality of Christmas TV broadcasts in French-speaking Europe has decreased. Movies of Christmas Eve have generally been replaced by musical broadcasts whose quality was not the best. Lots of TV companies also tend to offer hundred times viewed movies: for instance, TVI will display Harry Potter 1 and 2 on December 24th while we were expecting watching Harry Potter 3 or 4…
However, thanks to the Internet and DVD stores, I have the opportunity to watch the movies I love instead of those proposed by TV
Like many independent filmmakers out there I was disappointed with how the traditional distribution deals for my movies turned out. This is kind of like my Jerry Maguire moment. It’s 6 AM on a Saturday and I’m on my laptop. Making smaller budget movies outside of Hollywood without name stars severely limits your distribution options. 9 out of 10 times it leads to a filmmaker signing a deal with a independent distribution company that doesn’t pay off. You basically sell the rights to your movie for pennies on the dollar. Not to mention your sweat equity and creative energy that goes unrewarded. Bottom-line is most independent filmmakers don’t come close to breaking even with these type of distribution deals. It’s down right frustrating.
After going through this myself I started to rethink if making independent movies was worth it. Then my friend, editor Tim Beachum, who follows tech trends in entertainment told me, “You love to make movies. Don’t stop. Just rethink how to get your movies distributed to viewers.” I watch videos on YouTube, MetaCafe, Dailymotion and other sites. Free content is cool, but independent filmmakers need to earn money from their work like the rest
If you are a movie fan like me than you have probably noticed the upswing in Hollywood studios going to the comic book and graphic novel well for ideas lately. Makes me wonder if the Hollywood studios are just running out of original ideas or are they finally giving credit to the right people. You have to admit some of the biggest blockbuster movies over the last few years have been from the realm of comic books and graphic novels.
Movies like Batman, X-men, 300, Spider Man, Iron Man and the latest Watchmen have all represented the comic book genre very well. There are many more I could mention and a lot more comic books and graphic novel movies that are on the way too. It’s a rich world of characters that really has limitless possibilities proven by the success of the new release the Watchmen. Many people believed that a rich character driven and dark graphic novel like the Watchmen would not have a shot of being made into a movie let alone a successful movie.
Hollywood studios are showing that they now have the technical chops to pull off pretty much anything that a
Do you make the same mistake so many other screenwriters make when writing screenplays? Do you overlook the fact that in order to get produced in Hollywood, you need to write screenplays that Hollywood produces?
I’m not sure where I read this, but I read where the best movie of 2001 to date is “Shrek.” The article went on to describe the reasons why. “Shrek” made more money at the box office and is the longest running movie of any movie released in 2001. Also, “Shrek” covers the largest demographic, as people of all ages go to it (kids, teens, adults and seniors). Perhaps the key thing that has made “Shrek” so popular is word-of-mouth.
“Shrek” and “The Prince of Egypt” are Hollywood-produced movies. What do they contain that your screenplays do not contain? Remember, I am writing about how to write screenplays that get produced; not how to write screenplays.
The first element “Shrek” and “The Prince of Egypt” have that your screenplays should also have is a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. “Shrek” and “The Prince of Egypt” take us from dire beginnings, to riveting middles, to powerful endings

When it comes movies about the Iraq War, nothing comes close to the Hurt Locker. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, oddly enough the ex-wife of another director on my list, this movie offered an incredible look at one man’s story of bomb squad life in hostile territory. The cinematography in this movie was insanely good.
If you are a fan of anything that’s awesome then Avatar has to be on your list of favorite movies. This movie was absolutely incredible. James Cameron has truly mastered the art of showing us his imagination.
The planet of Pandora was unlike anything we, as viewers, have ever seen and the 3D technology truly made you feel as if you were on this foreign planet.
Both the aforementioned movies were exceptional, but my favorite movie of the year goes to District 9.
Directed by Neil Blompkamp and starring Sharlto Copley in his acting debut, this movie blew away all my expectations. The budget was somewhere in the 20 million range, however the action in this movie was only trumped by Avatar. That is saying something considering all the lackluster action movies Hollywood releases every year (Yes I am talking
Everyone loves entertainment. After all, it is the spice of life and it must go on till the life remains. Movies are one of the best sources of entertainment. If talked about comedy movies in Hollywood, they begin around 1900.
The first comic movie made people laugh at the continued sneezing of a man. The movie was “Record of Sneeze”â”the title just perfect with the plot. It was the beginner of the trend of comedies. The trend then never took a back gear; just moving on and on. Most of the classic comedy movies were made during the silent movies” era.
Talking about the best performances of comedy actors, Charlie Chaplin stands at the top. He has been awarded as the best comedian till date. His terrific comedy timings and his comic face itself has the power to make people roll with laughter. Many of the top comedies are performed by Charlie Chaplin.
It is a fact that comedy movies have more scope to be successful as after the stressful and hectic daily routine, one needs light atmosphere for sure. Watching comedies instead of heavy or negative or extremely meaningful movies relaxes a person in
Every year there are new blockbuster movies and potential classics that audiences can enjoy for generations to come. If you are looking for a list of great movies – arguably the best movies Hollywood has ever made, then start with this list of 20 best movies as your guide.
The American Film Institute and other critically respected organizations update their “Best” lists every year. Though the rankings may change, and there are occasionally new entries toward the top, here are the consistently ranked top Hollywood movies.
20 – To Kill A Mockingbird. Gregory Peck give an unforgettable performance in this adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel. His search for justice has inspired and influence courtroom dramas every since.
19 – E.T. No other film captured the imagination of young audiences in the 1980’s than E.T. This extra-terrestrial teamed up with Drew Barrymore to form the best chemistry between child and alien that the big screen has ever seen.
18 – Alien. Director Ridley Scott’s best film to date. Spawning multiple sequels that never lived up to the quality of this break-out film. A must-see for any sci-fi fan.
17 – Rear Window. How
Wide Awake Face Lift eliminates the fear of anesthesia in that requires no major anesthesia. Now with the introduction of 3D facelift, there is a new breakthrough in facelift procedure through reversing facial fat loss (the 3rd dimension of aging) thus preventing the “too pulled” and done look that is common with a traditional facelift.
Gravity has been blamed as the main cause of aging but the lesser known and neglected cause has been the fat loss in select areas of the face. The classic facelift pulls the face in only a two-dimensional angle even though the loss of fat in the face causes it to age in the third dimension. The 3D Face Lift breaks tradition of the old facelift by adding the person’s own fat to hollow areas of the face.
The avant-garde procedure takes place with the patient wide-awake using only local anesthesia and, remarkably, sitting up! Following the face lift he takes fat from unwanted areas and then processes and re-injects it into the areas of the face affected by thinning, such as under the eyes and cheeks.
What is more amazing is that our fat harbors a lot of stem
Well, does anyone of us ever come to think of Hollywood’s most memorable romance classics spanning decades? As an ardent admirer of romance and the alluring Hollywood musicals, I unmistakably feel my pulses rising with the sheer magic and aura of the timeless romances portrayed so very lovingly in the silver screen of the yesteryears. Be it the ever-touching saga of star-crossed lovers meeting during wartime under the Moorish arches of Rick’s Café American in “Casablanca”, or the sweeping melodrama, “Gone With The Wind”– based on Margaret Mitchell’s bestselling Civil War epic (which defined the term “Hollywood blockbuster”), I have an insatiable appetite for each of them.
Oh how can I ever forget the sweeping emotions of the magic of a shipboard romance which charms a Frenchman and American woman (Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne, respectively) into each other’s arms in the ever-memorable “Love Affair”? Or do you remember that phenomenal romance between Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr in “An Affair To Remember”, where a man and a woman meet on a ship crossing an ocean and fall in love, only to part ways, promising to meet dramatically on the top of Empire State Building, New York
“She danced even when her feet were not moving” Adolf Zukor
Clara Bow had somewhat of a disheartening beginning to her life having been born to an unhappily married mother who suffered from, the then misunderstood, epileptic fits. Sara Bow, who had previously had her first two babies die prematurely expected the same for her third one. This would not be the case for Clara.
Clara’s father, Robert Bow, was a drunken, verbally and physically abusive father and husband who was unable to hold a steady job and was away most of her childhood. The family lived in poverty and Clara’s mother Sara was forced into work as a prostitute in order to make money for food, often locking Clara in a closet while she entertained customers in their apartment.
Clara’s poor and tattered clothing led the other little girls in her neighborhood to make fun of her. As a result, she decided to make friends with the boys, who immediately took a liking to her “tomboyish” nature.
When she had turned sixteen, in order to escape her troubled life, Clara Bow began modeling for a number of movie magazines. She had often sought
