The worst person in TV history.

 Charles "Charley" Douglass.

Charles Rolland "Charley" Douglass (January 2, 1910 – April 8, 2003) was an American sound engineer, credited as the inventor of the laugh track.

Have you noticed how some films protray women in movies screaming, shreakking, and over overemotiong in other ways?  It's terrible acting and directing.
For theater it may be useful.  In a movie it seems comical.
I wonder if live theater may make a come back.

I’m curious.

In movies and TV shows, the director often has females putting their hand on their chest.  It seems to be when they want to express a strong emotion.                                          

Why do they do this?  

I’m curious because my mother has never done that.  My 2 sisters have never done that.  I can’t remember any female in real life, ever doing that.

Are there any females that do that?  If so, why?  What exactly does it mean?  And if they do, did they pick-it up from movies or TV?

Thinking about this further I think it's a great idea for corproate theaters to charge more for the latests release during xtmas, spring, or however they release chain produced sequals.

Hollywood movies seem like an assembly line of mediocracy.

There are the superhero movies,  the common romantic commedy, a child who coctrols things (for xtmas),  bachelor parties.

Super hero comic book figures,  Space movies such as Star Wars, Jurassic park, Chevy Chases'  vacation movies,  The Hangover syndicate.

The list goes on an on.

What suprises me is remakes of some old movies aren't needed. Ocean's Eleven shouldn't have been remade and syndecated into Ocean's Twelve. Nor should the Italian Job.

Hollywood doesnt seem to tap the tallent of screenwriters.  Hollywood is lazy.

Movies and TV for that matter from Hollywood seem to predictabe.

It seems that most movies are made for teenagers, children, or  non-custodial parents to waste an afternoon when the have the occation to visit their child.  Parents who may not see their children should do something rather than sitting in a theater with their neglected child(ren).

It might be better if movie theaters reduce prices for movies that aren't popular. 

Many films that aren't popular fit a differenct audiance. 

That model of pricing may allow more independent films to be viewed. 

I thought thats the way it was always done.  I didn't know that movie theaters charged the same price for every film according to time slot.  I dislike going to movie theathers. The patrons can be obnoxious. The sound [of the music] is way too loud.

Fortunately, there are still some privately owned movie theaters that show independent films.  There is a movie theater  in a town not far from me where one can still watch clasic films.  

I wonder how long until all independent movie theaters will be crushed.  Going to drive in movie theaters used to be fun to do, not nececerally because of the film, but because it was fun.  

Some may remember going to Midnight movies at theaters as kids.    Life for kids may be different today.

 I agree that popularity would be a better way to set price.

My taste in movies doesn't usually match popularity or quality.  For one thing, I don't like horror movies including Zombie flics.  

Comment by Chris on October 28, 2017 at 1:05am

Why do TV and Movies concentrate on "Zombies?"

It seems that Hollywood is lazy. 

I read that a movie theater chain plans on changing ticket prices according to 'how good' the movie 'is.'

Popularity would be a better way to describe the proposed ticket sales price.

Popularity and quality of a movie are unrelated.

Some of best movies fall outside of the Hollywood formula.

Interesting Plinius.

Comment by Plinius on May 27, 2017 at 6:55am

Perhaps it means 'calming yourself while feeling a strong emotion'. Funny you mention it. A friend mentioned this week that my husband always had this mannerism, and it's more noticeable now that he lives as a woman.
