While they are succeeding now, the increase in technology is causing for the younger generation to have a different mentality due to their shorter attention spans. They are less likely to want to pay outrageous prices to visit a theme park that does not return an efficient experience. 2. They have been heavily reliant on their movies to push their brand, and with a struggling movie industry as of late it may be more difficult to push their
This leads to little competition. For example, Paris has a total of about to 52 total attractions; whereas Hong Kong’s total attractions are just 16. Another contributing factor to Hong Kong’s poor performance was that the local French people had absolutely no knowledge of the Disney characters or what they were. 2. Some foreseeable factors include: * Being unfamiliar with other cultures * The French’s attitude towards the American lifestyle due to EuroDisney being thought as “American imperialism--plastics at its worst” * Prohibiting alcohol consumption even though the French often drink wine with their meals * Difference in attitudes/opinions about American/European tourists/parents * How the World Fair in Sivelle and Barcelona Olympics attracted more tourists in 1992 * The European Recession in the 1980s, the Gulf War of 1991, extremely high interest rates, weakening of several currencies Some controllable factors include: * Incorrect assumptions about designs, marketing, prices * Advertising too early became really expensive * Poor management: made decisions based on their needs/wants * Again, the ban on alcohol consumption in the park *
The existing scientific and artistic standard had been achieved during the ancient Roman period but the following Dark Ages during 600 to 1600 AD started because they weren’t as wealthy as they were in the Roman period and had no money for spending on luxuries such as art and knowledge. Also the spread of Christianity oppressed people from thinking and creating, maybe this is why this period is sometimes called the Middle Ages and sometimes it’s called the Dark Ages. Even now new forms of art and science depend on having enough money spent on them as well as a free environment so that the artists and scientists are not scared.it is impossible for art and science to progress while under threat, For example Galileo was put under house arrest for his whole remaining life after he said that the world went around the sun. Although during Ancient Roman times Italy was the center of world art there were other incredible artistic and scientific centers all around the world, towards the Renaissance period Rome became richer again so it became possible to travel easily between different countries and cultures. When trade began between these countries both science and art spread and evolved.
The cinemas are far more than entertainment in people’s heart; they represent the hope and joy and led people to escapes from reality. However, as the time passing, the Cinema Paradiso slowly loses its values in modern society and end up be demolished. The destruction of Cinema Paradiso symbolic the brilliantly cinema world is replaced by modern technology.
In comparison to other bands in the Kiwanis festival, I realize our piece lacks complexity, especially when the length of our piece is fairly short. This may add to our disadvantage if the judge takes the degree of difficulty into consideration. Although the other two bands lack a good soloist performance, their ability to play as a band makes up for their solos. This is enhanced when they exaggerate the intensity of the sound and made clear distinction between accents and staccatos. I feel like we lost the tempo during the middle of the performance.
The huge failure of Cleopatra meant that Twentieth Century Fox was bankrupt, and it showed that the audience no longer connected with what was put on the widescreen. The younger audience of the 1960s now found films like Cleopatra out-dated, and at odds with the violent, sexual and youthful world that had not existed in the 1950s. The production of Fall of the Roman Empire was a final attempt to make a claim for Hollywood’s vision of Rome. It was an exploitation of classic cinema devices, which challenge and draw upon the conventions of Hollywood style according to Wyke. The opening scenes are classic as they have a voiceover explaining what the audience are to expect, however the sequence also places a distance between the film itself and the previous cold war narratives of Christianity.
The same thing happened in “Her Majesty’s Secret Service” in which Sean Connery gets married, and afterwards his wife is killed. He also gets upset. The statement is quite a big claim as some films are genuinely not predictable such as the latest film Skyfall and some of the old ones. Overall Casino Royale is fairly predictable with only some parts being really obvious, on the whole the film is pretty much the same as the rest with the same structure and action sequences. I disagree with the question as they are not all predictable, if they were they would not be such a big success as they
However, integration does not appear to have had such success. With the acquisition, ABC is effectively forced into purchasing Disney’s content versus the best, and in some cases better, alternatives. As a result, ABC’s ratings have struggled over time (particularly excluding Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) as the end consumer has opted for programming on other stations. Thus, theoretically, other stations are able to charge higher rates for advertising time. While this may be a beneficial arrangement for Disney (i.e.
How successful were Witte's modernising policies for Russia? Throughout the 19th Century Russia had suffered many challenges and problems both economically and industrially. Despite the sheer size of Russia they were fast falling behind Western countries such as Great Britain and Germany in many aspects; Russia fell behind in areas such as, politics in which they were failing to advance due to their refusal to introduce a working parliament, economy as they had yet to introduce a less intimidating and more understandable backing system so to encourage trading with other countries and industrialisation which was done on a small scale and restricted by the lack of railways and roads. Famine was running high due to extensive taxes, agriculture was waning due to the rapid expansion of the population and the inability to distribute productive agricultural land and foreign investment was practically non existent. The country was in desperate needs of some reforms that could put her back on the map and help her regain her status as one of Europe's "Great Powers".
In the graph we can see that the aesthetics starts from the lower end of the quality bar and increases to the high quality as time goes on. The storyline however begins at a higher quality and drops off as time goes on. In regards to facts to back these trends up, it is very hard to find factual evidence that the storyline side of the graph is true and correct. This is because any comments to do with the quality of a storyline are all based on particular peoples opinions. Some people are employed, as “critics” of movies however that does not mean that what they say about a particular film is fact, it is merely their own opinion.
