This led to local imitators entering the market and providing an entertainment platform capable of providing more customization to the region. While MTV did learn from this mistake, it was slow to respond. Some 14 years after it entered the market and learned from its first mistake in international
I was really pleased just how well the movie really made it feel like you were back in the 50’s right alongside with the famous gangster, Mickey Cohen. Although I thought Gangster Squad was an overall great movie, if there was one thing I thought could have been a tad bit better it would be the acting.

However, Sean Penn was really the only one that stood out for me, everyone else just seemed like they weren’t as into the whole era as much as he was, or able to act like it. Even though he was a little over the top sometimes, it made sense for the sense of the character he was playing.

RESEARCH ANALYSIS SYNOPSIS TOPIC: HOW DOES BOLLYWOOD MOVIES INFLUENCE THE LIFESTYLE IN THE SOCIETY BOLLYWOOD MOVIES have been a major source of entertainment for the past 100 years in the society and is still growing. Movies have always been a part of every Indian’s life, having their favourite actors and actress who play a vital role in inspiring their lifestyle. Movie making is an art where different aspects of the society is put together to make a movie.
