The term “Movie” refers to any of a vast array of motion pictures that have ever been made. A movie, also known as a video, short movie, animation or video, is an artistic work of visual art employing elaborate arrangements of moving pictures to convey messages, themes, impressions, emotions, beauty, or environment through the utilization of moving images. Movies are produced by filmmakers and distributed by video rental companies over the World Wide Web. There are many different genres of movies ranging from the slapstick comedy to the epic fantasy. Even a look into the history of movie making will show that it has always been a collaborative process between the artist, the director/writer/actor/performer and the studio or distributor in charge of the movie’s marketing and distribution.
It is important to realize that although all motion pictures fall under the classification of motion pictures, they are often classified by the medium utilized to make them. In the modern era of cinema the major motion picture industry includes movies for television, cinema screens, DVD players and other electronic devices such as game consoles. There are also independent films for home entertainment that often utilize one of three main types of format for presentation: the mono frame, the extended frame or the widescreen format. Each type of format creates a different look and can be suited to a different desired audience.
Movies are often classified based on the type of message they convey. There are horror movies and science fiction movies that are intended to frighten or entertain. Action movies are often classified according to the type of violence and fighting depicted. Romantic comedies fall under the category of romance unless they are intended to be a form of sexual pornography. When it comes to movies intended to entertain, the options are virtually unlimited.
A movie is sometimes given a name that helps describe its genre. For example, “family” movies are commonly called “family films.” Film critics use a term to compare a movie with another of the same genre. Another commonly used term is the term “comedian” to compare a movie comedy with a romantic comedy or action movie with a war movie. Film critics often disagree with the categorization of certain movies, often citing specific scenes or elements that do not constitute a movie as a comedy, a drama, ahorror, or a film with a political theme.
The term “blockbuster” is often used to describe a movie. Blockbuster means a store that sells more than one movie on the same day. It is the industry standard for a movie store to have at least two to three titles within its inventory. This is the term used by DVD retailers to describe a store that offers multiple titles. Video rental shops use the term “dvd rental” to describe a business that offers the service of renting video games, movies, and music videos on demand from the comfort of their customer’s homes. Blockbuster, video rental and DVD rental shops are the three most common retail establishments that offer this type of service.
