GENRE ANALYSIS

Genre analysis
(ROMANTIC COMEDY)

The romantic comedy is a genre derived from the romance genre and the comedy genre. In a typical romantic comedy the two lovers tend to be young, likeable, and apparently meant for each other, yet they are kept apart by some complicating circumstance (e.g., class differences, parental interference; a previous girlfriend or boyfriend) until, surmounting all obstacles, they are finally wed. A wedding-bells, fairy-tale-style happy ending is practically mandatory. The basic plot of a romantic comedy is that two characters, usually a man and a woman, meet, part ways due to an argument or other obstacle, then ultimately reunite. Sometimes the two leads meet and become involved initially, then must confront challenges to their union. Sometimes they are hesitant to become romantically involved because they believe that they do not like each other, because one of them already has a partner, or because of social pressures. However, the screenwriters leave clues that suggest that the characters are, in fact, attracted to each other and that they would be a good love match. The protagonists often separate or seek time apart to sort out their feelings or deal with the external obstacles to their being together.

While the two protagonists are separated, one or both of them usually realizes that they are ideal for each other, or that they are in love with each other. Then, after one of the two makes some spectacular effort (sometimes called the grand gesture) to find the other person and declare their love, or through an astonishing coincidental encounter, the two meet again. Then, perhaps with some comic friction or awkwardness, they declare their love for each other and the film ends happily. The couple does not, however, have to marry, or live together “happily ever after”. The ending of a romantic comedy is meant to affirm the primary importance of the love relationship in its protagonists’ lives, even if they physically separate in the end.

MEDIA ISSUES

Media issues

Piracy

the illegal distribution of media without the permission of its owner. E.g. Downloading, Pirate DVDs. The advancement in technology has made piracy easier, cheaper and has improved the quality of the content. Electronic files can be leaked in advance of a films release. The internet allows pirate material to be distributed all over the world very quickly Digital cameras and sound equipment used in cinemas to record pirate copies of a film have improved greatly in quality Digital technology has allowed films to be released simultaneously across the world. Previously the delay in films reaching the UK from America meant that piracy was a more popular option.

Digital encryption means that films can be securely distributed.  The rise in digital film production and exhibition has paved the way for 3D cinema3D cinema is currently more difficult to “pirate”. It can not be filmed effectively in cinemas. The cost of watching good quality 3D material at home is high. The movie industry is not without clout however and it is responding to this threat with both with hard legal measures and also by raising awareness of the consequences of piracy. Piracy, in particular, internet piracy can be assumed to be growing. Even if it is not, it is a significantly large enough problem at the moment for something to need to be done about it. Piracy needs to stop, or at least be controlled to prevent it from completely undermining the film industry.

 

 

 

 

HOLLYWOOD’S DOMINANCE

Hollywood is the top player in the global arena of film industries, and sales confirm it. While only topped by India’s movie market (dubbed Bollywood) in sheer output and rivaled in worldwide popularity, America’s blockbusters remain a preferred cinema experience for most of the world. Hollywood is willing to gamble on a single, huge blockbuster. Movies are an expensive endeavor, and America has long been one of the wealthiest countries in the world. The tradition of going to the movies, started as a cheap, escapist group activity, long established a national past-time for Americans. Hollywood has long had to come up with ways to keep people coming back, though, to create spectacles and increasingly bigger more exciting experiences. The big studios have only gotten bigger, and with conglomeration, have even less rivalry from independent sources, and can provide so much funding that the only limit to a Hollywood movie is the limit of the imagination. There’s so much spent that film-fans can see new product out of Hollywood every single week. There are other factors like the interest in the free-trade of film products, that some Hollywood studios may almost force certain movies into a foreign market. Many blockbusters today are so expensive there’s no way they could recoup and make a profit domestically, and they’re made fully with the expectation the global market will put it over the top. Whatever the reason, it has further since cemented Hollywood’s dominance as the world’s foremost film industry.
