5 Movies That Revolutionized the Entertainment Industry
There are successful movies, there are epic failures, there are those that are one of a kind, but then every once in a while there are movies that are responsible for paving a whole different road for the entertainment industry. For instance, 3D movies were not always there, neither were the colored ones. Oh, and dinosaurs didn’t always appear this real, in fact, if you looked close enough you’d have been able to see the mechanic jaws of the dinosaurs in the past–it’s pretty hard to take a so apparently mechanic-looking dinosaur seriously.
So many of our favorite movies today have been possible because of the revolutionary ones that made it all possible; let’s have a look at 5 such movies:
1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:
Released in 1937, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Disney was the revolutionary movie that for the first time introduced the concept of color, sound, and animation in the entertainment industry. Not only that but it was the first time that a cartoon movie was released in full length. Even Disney’s own wife was doubtful of this progress, yet Disney continued on and resulted in making a total of $ 8 million for this movie and that too during the times of the great depression. So we can safely thank this first full-length animated movie for giving us treasures like Tangled, Frozen and many others over the years.
2. The Blair Witch Project:
Never before had anyone imagined something like found footages for a use in movies, however, it was The Blair Witch Project that introduced this concept for the first time.
3. The Breakfast Club:
A high-school student (or students) struggling with growing up and braving the challenges of high-school belongs to the genre of coming-of-age movies. And this genre was set up by none other than The Breakfast Club. To this day every summer we get to see trailers of several movies along the same genre but none could either compare or get the message across as beautifully as this movie did.
4. Harry Potter series:
All the sequels, prequels and other mind-boggling parts of the movies that we see today were all made possible due to the movie franchise Harry potter. While this name is not new to breaking records, earning millions–even billions– of dollars, it has set new milestones for everything related to entertainment; we can still thank it & J. K. Rowling for bringing the concept of several parts movies into reality or we would be watching 6-8 hours long novel-adapted movies or none at all.
5. Lord of the Rings Trilogy:
The splendid movie trilogy, Lord of the Rings actually showed the entertainment world that it is possible to become simply the best in everything, break all sorts of records and just be one of a kind in its own genre. Many movies and fantasy stories have been released after this trilogy but to this day, none can compare to it.
So these were the revolutionary movies that made possible the extreme technological and logical advancements in today’s entertainment industry.
A Selection of Entertainment Industry Quotes
“There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.” ~ Judith Martin
“One of the world’s most popular entertainments is a deck of cards, which contains thirteen each of four suits, highlighted by kings, queens and jacks, who are possibly the queen’s younger, more attractive boyfriends.” ~ Lemony Snicket
“My shoulder will never be the same. I expect you to nurse me back to health.” ~ Cassandra Clare, City of Bones
“I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained” ~ Walt Disney Company
“I really didn’t realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group.
They are subversive. You think they’re just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They’re like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn’t mess with them. You know, they’ve had their budgets cut. They’re paid nothing. Books are falling apart. The libraries are just like the ass end of everything, right?” ~ Michael Moore
“My loathings are simple. stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music. My pleasures are the most intense known to man: writing and butterfly hunting.” ~ Vladimir Nabokov, Strong Opinions
“People are sheep. TV is the shepherd.” ~ Jess C. Scott, Literary Heroin (Gluttony): A Twilight Parody
