Movie making began in the late 1800s. Initially they were shown as tools of communication an entertainment, althoughmost films at the beginning were silent. Films were similar to plays; the scenery, props, actors and creativity were much more elaborate than nowadays. I would even say moreauthentic.
Over the last few decades cinema has not been as popular as before. I believe it has been due to poor film making. The quality of the films is not as high as it should be.People flock the theaters only because boredom, or to have something to do.
The idea of movie production has changed its cultural point of view through the years. It used to bean artistic achievement represented by excellent actors, with imaginative and original plots. Not any more, nowadays film quality, in terms of imagination and originality, hasdecreased noticeably due to the fact that film studios focus more on marketing and profits than on producing high-quality movies.
Although film producers and public believe that highbudgets make excellent movies, I strongly disagree. Because spending a higher quantity of money on special effects or exotic landscapes, does not mean that it necessarily has tobe original, well-acted or even have an imaginative or original story plot. A good example of these, would be “The impossible”, I really did not enjoy the movie due to its lack ofa decent plot. It was highly predictable what was about to happen. This shows that though there was a great budget it does not make a great film.
In conclusion, film makingshould not be based on economical investment; however I understand without a good budget films would not be produced. Notwithstanding in utopian world, quality should always prevail.
