When I was a child and then a teenager, in the 60s and 70s, the only new television programs airing in the U.S. were on ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS. Therefore there were relatively few television shows to watch. We also did not have computers and video games back then so I imagine that a larger percent of time was spent watching TV. My point is that because so many people were watching so few shows, the people in this age group (the younger half of the baby boom) have a shared nostalgia of television shows of their youth. I worry that our teens will not experience this when they are our age. Ever since Fox became the fourth network, more and more channels have been adding new programming to their lineup.
Everyone has an opinion on the Oscar nominated, Golden Globe award winning movie starring acclaimed actress Julia Roberts. It is one of my favorite movies. The woman falls in love with the handsome, loving, rich prince who takes her away in his limo. It is like a modern day Cinderella, I think. However, many would say that its just a woman who needs help financially, and a man who likes to pay to control people. So, he got what he wanted, and so does she. It's just a working relationship. Here is a brief summary of the movie. Pretty Woman is a modern tale of a woman who had a hard life and still finds love. It stars a young woman named Vivian who moves out to Hollywood.
Just like other electrical appliances and home equipment, the television has continued to evolve. From the early days of analog black and white, we have advanced through color and solid state transmissions to the latest world of high definition television. The question remains, are you ready for HDTV? Here are some signs that you may be. One of the first signs that high definition televisions are for you is that you are a dedicated television hound. That does not mean you are among the people who switch on the set when you get in from work, simply out of habit. People who are true aficionados of the television experience are committed viewers. They know the schedules for all their favorite stations, have not problem reciting the complete litany of station lineup on their cable or dish network, and never have to resort to using the channel directory with the system.
Being a film critic, it's very easy for me to buy my ticket, allow myself to dive in to a film for a few hours, come out at the end and deliver my two cents on what I thought of it; and then I go on with my life. It's simple, painless and I get to voice my opinion. One thing that can get overlooked in doing that is the lack of respect shown to the filmmaker for the amount of effort he or she has put in to the film. Watching a film takes a few hours. Making a film can take years. As a critic it's easy to forget that a film can take up a good portion of a filmmaker's life bringing it to the screen; upon reflection, it appears that my two cents can't really account for the journey the filmmaker has gone through to realise their vision, no matter how flawed or perfect it may be.

Max Färberböck's adaptation of Erica Fischer's book 'Aimée & Jaguar' seems to be a conceptual film adaptation which means that the core of the story remained more or less the same although there are some significant changes in certain aspects of the original story. The film director focused more on the relationship between two lesbian females as such, satisfying more his own private male fantasies regarding such a relationship (see especially the passionate, almost pornographic film scene from the 62nd to the 65th minute of the film! ) than translating Fischer's book about the German woman named Lilly (Elisabeth Wust, with nickname Aimée) and the Jewish woman named Felice Schragenheim (with the nickname Jaguar) into the film medium.
It must be hard work being a television addict in the US. Not only are there far too many channels to choose from, but you can turn on the box just about any time of the day or night and be guaranteed to find something that'll keep you watching - even if you don't really want to. Mind you, much of it seems to be regurgitated reruns that weren't that spectacular first time around. Of the more up-to-date stuff available there's an unlimited supply of semi-talent shows that come in all shapes and sizes, endless reality programmes trying to out-vulgar one another and so-called complex cutting-edge dramas whose plots are so contorted it becomes impossible to decipher what's going on.

The 2007 film 'There Will Be Blood, ' written for the screen and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, rightly deserves its place as an American epic masterpiece. This haunting and highly involved tale revolves around the life of independent oilman, Daniel Plainview ( Daniel Day - Lewis ), and his adopted son, as they search for 'black gold' within the rough terrain of the California desert at the turn of the 20th century. Daniel Plainview's ambition as an oil entrepreneur is a fiercely rugged journey, fascinatingly portrayed in parallel to the historical development of the Industrial Revolution; and it is both achieved and challenged by Evangelist preacher, Eli Sunday.
