Film Background Report
Coach Carter In many sports movies there is some type of resilience and character building that takes place. Playing sports goes hand in hand with resilience and character. These two articles personally talk about the importance of these two topics which tie in with many of the events of the movie. The team in this movie overcame a lot of adversity to prove to everyone else around them that they could do better with the right motivation. They faced the fact that you play and conquer everything as a team; overcoming the bad grades of many and turning that around to get themselves into colleges so that they could pursue better things for their future. Pursuing their dreams against great odds taught them character and to stay tough and stick together through all things. When you go through many different experiences such as Timo going through the death of his older cousin he reacted in a proactive way rather than a reactive one. In Minchew’s article it states that what matters most is how we respond to life’s experiences. He states that proactive people take initiative and assume control of their lives. In the movie instead of Timo continuing on a negative route he decided to go back to the team and do something positive to stay out of trouble.

Becoming an athlete means you have to have the ability to learn from adversity and triumph over it. In Minchew’s article it states that athletes must learn that they can’t always win but that they can and must learn from their mistakes. At the end of the movie they didn’t end up winning the championship but they overcame that and did plenty of better things for the futures like going to college, many of them playing basketball while going to college. They overcame a huge amount of adversity throughout their whole season. They had to put in…...

... The scholarly literature has shown that Black men academically underperform all groups throughout the educational pipeline (Hood, 1992; Jackson, 2003; Polite, 1994; Watson & Hodges, 1991).  Jameson (1991) explains that film can be a useful vehicle for unveiling harsh realities about the lived experiences of sundry people.  In Boyz N The Hood (1991), John Singleton offers an alarming account of the survived experiences of Black people, particularly Black men, in a poverty-ravaged South Central Los Angeles neighborhood.  At the center of the film’s narrative is the relationship and interactions between three young Black males: Tre Styles, Darrin “Doughboy” Baker, and Ricky Baker. The audience sees how racism, indifference, rampant violence, and the increasing disintegration of the Black family in South Central Los Angeles militate against the coming of age of these three Black males.  As a contribution to the scholarly discourse on Boyz N The Hood, this paper provides an examination of how structural dimensions of the setting in which the film is set (South Central Los Angeles) have a damaging impact on the progression of these Black males.  The structural frame championed by Bolman and Deal (2008) serves as the dominant lens through which this film is analyzed. John Singleton's movie Boyz N The Hood is the story of three young men who are forced to deal with the reality of life in South Central, Los Angeles. Singleton uses this setting to illustrate the obstacles......

On February 10, 2014 a 7:00 p.m. film was premiered on Middle Georgia State College Macon campus in the Math Auditorium for the remembrance of Black History Month.

A film that covers a 36-hour period Los Angeles during which the lives a diverse handful of disparate citizens crash into one another as they deal with racial and social tensions. According to the Coordinator of this event, Amy Carter said, “It’s for black history month because one of our main focus this year for black history month was about diversity and acceptance.

Survey Report About Films in Slovakia

...Survey report A sample of 11 students, 7 females and 4 males, ranging from 19 to 25 years old, were surveyed in order to acquire their opinions on film marketing. It is notable to highlight that 10 respondents watch downloaded films most often, while only 1 person watchs them mostly at the cinema. Nobody chose the option of DVD, Bluray or TV. It raises the question of the discrepancy between selecting a film, which is the primary concern of this survey and the aim of film marketing itself, and actually vieweing it in the cinema, which is the main way of earning the profit. According to 10 respondents, the deciding factor of selecting a film is strong, interesting idea, which in film vocabulary means high concept, as opposed to popular actors or director chosen by only 1 person. However, in the question about most expecting film of 2012 the majority opted for The Dark Knight Rises with stating the reason of its director Christopher Nolan and his genius. The film does not posses outstanding ,,what if" idea, it is only the continuation of batman´s story, and in this case a popular filmmaker and his qualities is what brings audience to the cinema. It possibly means people only think they choose a film because of its concept, and the true reason is the celebrities. However, the question about deciding factor asked about a case of not knowing the film before and The Dark Knight Rises already initialized its promotion campaign, but still, the importance of Christopher Nolan´s...

Hugo -a Film Report

...Robert Richardson About the film: Hugo (2011) is the story of a young orphaned adventurer whose determination to discover a secret, brings to light the forgotten contributions of a film pioneer. The movie begins with various 1st person point of view panoramic shots of the Gare du Nord rail station from inside the numerous clocks found inside the rail station, while Hugo (Asa Butterfield) is shown moving around the maze of passages from clock to clock.  Hugo, who fixes the clocks at Gare du Nord due to the death of his Uncle Claud, also spends his time trying to fix a broken automation machine left by his father. In addition to the automation device the only other item Hugo has from his father is a small notebook detailing the automation device.  Since Hugo requires extra parts to fix the clocks and automation, he must resort to stealing from merchants at the station.  One particular toy merchant named Georges Méliès (Ben Kingsley) catches Hugo trying to steal a windup toy. As payback for stealing the toy, Georges takes the notebook from Hugo and refuses to give it back.  In Hugo’s attempt to get the notebook back, he follows Méliès home and is introduced to Isabella (Chloe Grace Moretz), Georges’ goddaughter.  Hugo befriends Isabella and she offers her help in retrieving the notebook.  Hugo exposes Isabella to the movies, as he learns that has never been to a moving picture (we will learn that it is Georges that never exposes Isabella to films).

The Report on Film Insider

...The report on film “Insider” The most interesting thing is that the film was put on the events, which only recently had taken place in America. The real names of main characters of the story, played by Al Pacino and Russell Crowe, are Dr. Lowell Bergman and Uigand. Dr. Uigand actually testified in court against the tobacco company "Brown & Williamson" (by the way, the management of the company after the movie has filed a lawsuit against the producers of the film) and convinced the court of justice, so then in fifty U.S. states have filed lawsuits on tobacco companies for a total of 246 billion dollars. Many of these claims have been satisfied and called a real panic among the tobacco workers, because it was a first precedent when the tobacco workers were found guilty. Prior to this, tobacco companies do not ever lose in the court, spending on lawyers and attorneys huge money. I have already heard about these processes, and still could not figure out what it was about. But this film put everything in its place. This is not about that tobacco itself is addictive and harmful for health. The question is what chemical elements and compounds the tobacco companies add in production of cigarettes to have "better taste", "better smoke" and so on. Ammonia and nitrate - not all of that stuff, which adds a certain cigarette "taste", and many times increases the addiction to tobacco, the risk of lung cancer and other illnesses. That's the whole point. Smokers consciously......

...Woodward Research 4 November 2011 Airways Airways provides essential services for NZ airspace, with growing business overseas Company Background Airways is a state-owned enterprise (SOE) owned by the New Zealand government and headquartered in Wellington, New Zealand. The company’s core business is as the designated Air Navigation Services Provider (ANSP) for the New Zealand Flight Information Region (FIR), which covers the entire country and its surrounding oceans, as well as part of Antarctica. Airways provides air traffic control (ATC), air traffic management (ATM), and navigation services, and controls approximately 1 million aircraft movements per year. The company has also launched growth businesses that include ANS-related training services, software licensing and consulting services to clients located mostly offshore. Earnings & Valuation Woodward Research, using a discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, values Airways at an enterprise value of $140.5 million. Airways has net debt of $22.1 million. This values Airways’ equity at $118.3 million. Woodward Research has also valued Airways using valuation metrics drawn from a group of comparable companies. Using enterprise value to EBITDA (EV/EBITDA) metrics gives an enterprise value of $176.7 million. Because its revenues and cash flows are fairly predictable, and that there is an inadequate peer group of companies to compare Airways to, Woodward Research believes that DCF is the best way to value Airways.
