Movie Remakes – New Releases effect the Halloween Costume Industry

In Holidays, Movies, Online Shopping on February 19, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Ironman Halloween CostumeIt is really interesting to see how the movie industry recreates old movies, and in 2010, 2011, and 2012, we’ll get our fair share of remade movies of the classic hits of yesteryear. I understand that the latest film technology gives film makers more tools to create the masterpiece look they were after back in the day, and I understand that some directors want to create these classic movies in a way that they seem fit, thus trying to play the I’m better than you game, but is it really a good idea, or are remakes the “Guaranteed” gold mines of film making?

Of course I’m kind of split on remakes. Part of me wants the film industry to leave some of the classic films alone, because I want the originality to stay intact. Even though they may have not been produced with the “Modern” day technology that the film industry has today, but they at the time of their releases they were instant classics and for the horror flicks, they did scare the hell out of me when I was a kid.

But looking at it from the industries point of view, I can see why. They obviously know there is already a fan base there, and of course maybe they believe that they will be able to tell the story just a little bit better with the capabilities they have at their hands today. Not only is there remakes being developed to perhaps become box office hits, but also there are a ton of new versions or past blockbuster hits.

What is surprising is that the movie industry has a huge effect on the Halloween Costumes industry. The latest blockbuster can strongly effect the newest lines of Costumes and their selling ability. The overall effect that the movie industry has on the costume industry is obviously recognized in Kids Costumes. It really is no secret that children are direct targets of advertising networks, because they understand that if they get their product in front of Children, chances are they will bug their parents enough till the point they break down and make the purchases. 2010 Halloween Costumes should provide some interesting choices during your costume shopping.

Avatar 3D a Must See – A visual Masterpeice

In Movies on February 18, 2010 at 8:00 pm

If you haven’t had a chance to see Avatar in the theaters, specially the 3D version, then you should hit the theaters before it is totally gone from them. It’s been playing pretty heavy since December of 2009, so chances are there are probably only a few theaters left playing this amazing hit.

The film was supposedly written back in 1995, but unfortunetely making the movie back then was virtually almost impossible for the type of filming that needed to be done to make this film the masterpiece it is today. Thankfully after years of waiting, Avatar started the production procedure in 2005, the path to producing the 2009 mega hit was in motion.

In December of 2009 the long awaited Avatar hit the theaters running, breaking record after box office record. To date Avatar exceed expectations and the expensive film has become the highest grossing film of all time. James Cameron has produced another blockbuster even after the longĀ  absence of feature film making.

When leaving the theater I was memorized by the detail and the amount of creativity put into this film. The World “Pandora” was a virtual paradise, and in 3D the movie watching experience was superior to anything I have seen before. The Digital Filming and the costumes were superior than anything I could of expected going into the theater to experience the world of Avatar.

Even though some so-called “Critics” called the story _______, never shall I repeat the words of fools, I thought the storyline, even though a little far fetched, a win for the Avatar team. The story was good enough to accompany the film images, giving it an A is pretty easy in our book.
