@Filmbull – Modern Family

This review is brought to you by a die-hard tv show and movie watcher who loves entertainment as much as you do. It is also brought to you by our team here at Filmbull.com where we offer online movies that are instantly streamed to your Internet-ready devices and Internet-ready tv.

Modern Family is as the title accurately describes, a show about the modern 2012 interactions between the new conventional family. This is a show that has been adjusted for a more forward thinking viewer and understands the modern day family can be more than a white picket fence and two kids.

Jay Pritchett is the father of Claire and her brother Mitchell who is married to his heavy-accented wife Gloria. He lives with her and her mature-beyond-his-years son, Manny. Gloria often botches American sayings due to her thick Columbian accent. In one episode she is asking her husband to be nicer to people and says that he should be more polite even if he has to “Put on his sugar jacket…” when she really meant to say even if he has to “Sugar coat it…”

Jay’s son Mitchell works day to day and raises an adopted Asian baby Lilly with his quirky partner who is from a rural part of Missouri before moving to California. Plenty of times he brings up how things used to be on the farm or how back in Missouri they would do things differently. He also went to a certified clown college and graduated with flying colors. A fact that Mitchell is even too embarrassed normally talk about.

Claire is married to Phil Dunfy and they have three kids together, two teenagers and one preteen, although some could consider Phil to be a kid himself as he is always interested in video games, junk food, and other pre-adolescent things that his twelve year old son is also interested with.
Modern family has a very wide viewing audience and has gained massive popularity because much like other lighthearted popular shows in a similar category, it pulls out all of the stops. Whether it’s relating to what’s to be considered a normal or typical family, homosexuality, adoption or interracial couples, they all have the same mindset of knowing that the family is what comes first regardless of how different a family can look or how they come together.

The show has a good collection of humorous moments as many times one of the characters will have the best intentions while messing it up altogether. The show always tries to end positively and give the audience something to leave with. Typically, a nice thought of remembering to love one another or something along those lines. People can feel it to be relative in the way that it touches on the subjects of raising teenagers, an infant, being successful at your job, or being married and having a family though the audience isn’t limited only to middle aged adults bringing up families.

Filmbull – Mirror Mirror

Another remake of a classic fairy tale, this movie is about the evil queen (Julia Roberts) ruling over her kingdom that she captured. Snow White and seven brave dwarves (or is it spelled dwarfs) team up to get Snow White’s kingdom and the Prince back. This film also stars Armie Hammer as the Prince, Jordan Prentice as a dwarf, and Nathan Lane as Brighton.

Filmbull – Golden Age of Silver Screen May Be Coming to a Close

There’s been news all over the Internet and tv that the summer box office hits have broken all kinds of records with their ticket sales. The amounts below will show sums that look like a lot of money but Hollywood just doesn’t consider inflation. Things cost more. Movies cost more to produce and the tickets are higher so, of course, the sales look like an enormous amounts. Let’s first look at the ticket sales of the some of the more recent box office hits and what the dollar amounts that they have brought in:

Titanic (Paramount) $658,672,302

ET: The Extra-Terrestrial (Universal) $435,110,554

Avatar (Fox) $760,507,625

The Dark Knight (Warner Bros) $533,345,358

Star Wars (Fox) $460,998,007

Marvel’s The Avengers (Disney) $617,814,000

Shrek 2 (DreamWorks) $441,226,247

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (Fox) $474,544,677

The Lion King (Disney) $422,783,777

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (Disney) $423,315,812

Now take some older movies from the past and adjust them according to inflation and see what they earned in today’s dollar amounts:

Gone with the Wind (MGM) $1,620,397,900

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (Disney) $874,180,000

The Sound of Music (Fox) $1,142,171,300

The Exorcist (Warner Bros) $887,005,300
Star Wars (Fox) $1,428,519,200

ET: The Extra-Terrestrial (Universal) $1,137,671,800
Titanic (Paramount) $1,087,949,000

Jaws (Universal) $1,027,192,100
The Ten Commandments (Paramount) $1,050,620,000

Doctor Zhivago (MGM) $995,566,400

As you can see, when adjusted to inflation, the older movies reaped lots more money than even the biggest box office hits of today. There are many reasons for this but the main reason is due to the economy crisis. Everything costs so much more. Movies cost more to produce, theaters cost more to operate, ticket prices have increased, fuel costs to get to theaters have risen dramatically.

People have to turn to the new technologies that are making it more affordable and convenient for them to enjoy movies. With the Internet, there is now instant streaming where films and movies are streamed immediately to Internet-ready devices and Internet-ready tv’s. This makes it possible to watch movies as often as you wish and from anywhere and at any time that you want to watch them.

Not only do online movies save people money, they are able to enjoy them around their schedule and not the other way around. No more having to work your lives around what time the theater is showing a certain movie and having to drive there to make it in time.

So it seems that the Golden Age of the Silver Screen may be coming to a close but a new world of online movies that give you so much more savings, convenience and control has opened up.
