PostSubject: What makes a good movie?   Fri Sep 21, 2012 10:16 am

Just interested in researching this kinda stuff.
Not talking about YouTube videos, I mean real Hollywood movies.

In my spare time (I have spare time?? O rlly?)
I draw superhero designs, concepts, movie scenes, characters, locations, storylines, etc. in my NotePad. Very Happy

My input:
- good matching soundtrack that gets you pumped, feel sad or excited, happy, scared,.etc.
- good actors that look, sound and pay the part and be likeable from the start or at least fairly quickly.
- the feel if the movie is usually determined through the kind if locations, lighting, colour palette, etc.
E.g. a movie that involves a city, inside a building, a plane, a mountain, under water, etc. will be MUCH more likely to have a better feel and be memorable but not too predictable at the same time. A bad example would be a movie set entirely in a desert or plane, or one building...it gets tedious. You'll know what I mean if you fast forward movies.
- a story that's neither too cliche, predictable, stupid, unbelievable, exaggerated, boring, etc.
- the ending needs to be satisfying or you've lost half the movie awesomeness already.
It can't be predictable, too long or too short.
This may sound horrible but a good ending in a movie usually involves at least one death. Lol. Or some kind of thing that hints more or changes the situation or shocks the audience.
- good angles, perspective, timing (no longer than 3 second shots except for dialogue out other exceptions)
- a ## or message that gives the movie value. For example, Batman is a symbol of hope and has his one rule: don't kill.
- continuity, structure, virtually free of plot holes, transitions of events, etc. should be considered.
- special effects are nice but over the top like transformers....lol.
- not too much dialogue, and even it out but not in a predictable manner.
- not too little dialogue; you don't want random fighting with no clever dialogue for example.
- try to include action, sadness, happiness, juxtaposition, pathetic fallacy, twists, red herrings, foreshadowing techniques, etc.
- a concept that hasn't been done before. And one that's interesting.
- introduce characters well but get to the point relatively quickly.
- if a film has action sequences, they should be at different angles, perspectives, be original, involve the environment, etc.

Can't think of any more right now. :p

Hmm the heart of an actually good movie i guess is how the story wraps up or how it ends Which in all the movies

I've seen is one of the places you thoughts (or if its a sad movie your emotions) become enhanced. or stuff like that.. Smile

Btw i hate happy endings...

I mostly like monster movies because they are genuinely exciting. -And they keep my up at night- :affraid:

Lol @Hom Choi, you always have epic things to say xD.
How about execution?
Is there a particularly good way of tying together events?
Just wondering...

This is what makes a good movie to me:

- Good actors

- Good sound

- No songs (I hate musicals. Apart from ## Wonka/Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, but that's probably because those two involved chocolate.)

- Plenty of action! (If it's an action movie of course like The Avengers or Hot Fuzz)

- Lots of Laughs (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are good at mixing this with any other genre, like Paul and Shaun of the Dead. That's why I like their movies. But yeah, if there's no action, I'll settle with comedy.)

- No romance (I'm not a fan of romantic stuff. Unless Undelos is but I doubt it. Though I will settle with little romance, just not too much. Not 'romantic movie' kind of level. Normal level or lower.)

- Sci-Fi (Mixed with comedy or action. Like Paul as I mentioned earlier or Independence Day)

Yeah... Most of these I thought up off the top of my head. Don't judge me.
