Why films are such a hot topic at the water cooler at work

The film industry is looked at through rose-tinted glasses from many aspiring actors and film lovers across the world. While the reality might not be so glamorous as it seems as recent scandals have shown, there is still no question that it produces entertainment that is loved by millions across the globe. Just how many times has the twists and turns of a great thriller been the topic of the day at the water cooler at work? Films have an inherent nourishing aspect that is essential to the human experience – it would be hard to find someone who did not like movies at all.


Films have undergone significant change since their inception, most notably due to developing technology. Beginning in the late 19th century as cinematographic motion pictures, they eventually evolved to have colour, sound, and ground-breaking resolution. The films of today are modern spectacles that contain some bewildering visual effects that leave the audience how they did it safely – and physically. The film industry also has a popular betting scene and if you are looking for some betting sites then you can find options here. While blockbusters like the Mission Impossible series exist to leave their audience in awe, other genres exist that go for a different effect. The fact that each genre can elicit a wide range of emotions proves that cinema is a great industry as it can apply many themes and talk about nearly any subject.


The effect that the film industry has had on the entertainment industry cannot be understated. It had allowed directors and writers to tell intimate stories in a way that cannot be conveyed through any other medium. Films have also allowed an opportunity for certain published works to transcend the pages and be plastered on the big screen. While this is not always a great thing, many series have seen worldwide success since transforming. Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings are two examples that already had a large audience while existing purely in book form. When those movies came out though, both worlds exploded into the stratosphere, and they became massive franchises whose names would be recognised in all parts of the world.


Films have the potential to craft meaningful, compelling stories that can elicit a range of emotions from the audience. But an often-understated effect of films is how they have encouraged humans to redefine what is possible in terms of skill and ability. Acting will always be of the hardest skills to master as the inherent action of feigning emotion is incredibly difficult to appear convincing. Films inspire the best actors of us to go to the next level in terms of ability and produce some truly memorable experiences that stay with us for life. One only must look to examples like the opening scene of Inglorious Basterds to get an understanding of this notion. Through the talents of Cristoph Waltz and Perrier LaPadite, the audience receives a tangible feeling of Nazi-occupied France.


Films are a classic mode of entertainment and will always be one of the most loved ways of telling great stories. It will come to the joy of many aspiring actors and film enthusiasts that the industry is forever growing and shows no signs of declining.
