Analysing how humans impact movies and their success or failure.

Disclaimer: This is an opinion of mine so please take it with a grain of salt and please understand where I am coming from, if you disagree, then I applaud you to let me know why.

Plot:

What is the plot?

The plot is: “The story that is told in a novel or play or movie etc.”

Source: https://www.definitions.net/definition/plot

The plot of a movie can have an impact on how the audience feels about the movie. If the plot is good in their eyes, they may watch it, if it is bad, they may not watch it.

If the plot of the movie is about money, the act of spending money and the glorification of that fact. Those who hate money may not watch the movie or may dislike the movie. This could then cause outrage if it gathers enough collective dislike and will result in the demise of the profit that the movie makes.

The plot can be seen as the beginning of a movie success or failure. Then after comes the demographic, then bias, then outrage and then success or failure.

Demographic:

What is demographic?

Demographic is: “A statistic characterizing human populations (or segments of human populations broken down by age or sex or income etc.)”

The demographics of who the movie caters to or adopts can impact on its success. There was a movie called black panther that was recently done and achieved success by gaining “ $1.347 billion” in the box office.

The movie had a demographic that was predominantly black and seemed to express a black nationalist type of theme. This caused a backlash as several conservatives argued that it was discriminating against white people and fake photos of white people getting beat up at the theatres started to rise among conservatives.

The demographics as evident played a part as the demographics of the movie caused controversy among another demographic of people.

Bias:

What is bias?

Bias is: “A partiality that prevents objective consideration of an issue or situation”

Source: https://www.definitions.net/definition/bias

Whenever a movie is published, there are rating systems that help potential viewers to judge what the movie is like. That rating is written by humans like themselves and as humans, we can impose our bias when we are reviewing a movie.

We may have certain ideologies for how a movie should operate. For example, we may prefer a certain scene be shot in a certain location. As a result, we may judge a movie on that perceived wrongdoing even though we are judging that aspect based on what we want to be done, not how it was executed.

Outrage:

What is outrage?

Outrage is: “A feeling of righteous anger”

Source: https://www.definitions.net/definition/outrage

There have been many outrages over movies in the past. These outrages can determine whether a movie is successful or not. Outrage can be seen as extra publicity. If enough people continue to hate on a certain aspect, it causes news outlets to then publicize on what they predominantly publicize, which is negativity or controversy. This exposure can then result in others who do have an interest in the movie to then watch the movie and comment on their desire for it.

Outrage can also be the downfall of a movie. If a movie has many people criticizing it, this can result in people having a bad perception and not even attempt to watch the movie. They can hold a petition to get the movie cancelled and this can result in negative cash flow for the box office.

Conclusion: 

Humans are the ones who are truly the causation of whether a movie makes it or not. These can be done in many ways and be caused by man things. This is why movies try to appeal to humans by being politically correct (PC) or by trying to find a niche in the market and have a strong on those fans so that their balance won’t be broken by external forces (audience).
