Movie History at a Glance
also called movies or motion pictures
are a popular form of entertainment, a million dollar industry, a form of education and are considered an art form. The making and showing of motion pictures became profitable nearly as soon as motion pictures were invented. At first only a carnival novelty, movies developed gradually to the popular entertainment
as it is know today.
The first motion picture camera was invented in 1895 with the Lumiere's brothers Cinematographe which made motion pictures popular and that began the motion picture era. With the success of their new invention the Lumiere's brothers started touring to showcase the first film privately to royalty and publicly to the masses. Companies dedicated to theatres formed exclusively to produce and distribute films. Motion picture actors became celebrities
that started charging high performance fees. In 1017 Charlie Chaplin's
contract was for an annual salary of one million dollars.

Not long after the great success of motion pictures, movies
were being reviewed and rated much like OneShop's rating system. Movies were analysed and evaluated by academic critics and journalistic film critics
on the quality of the film, storyline, acting performances and many more aspects. Movie reviews
have a great and important impact on movies. Action, horror and comedy films are not so greatly affected by film critic but the plot summery and story line can still have a big influence whether or not people are going to see the film. The movie genres that are affected the most by negative criticism are Drama and Romance which can often be doomed by bad reviews. The aim of many movie producers and actors is to have a lasting impact to receive good criticism and to ultimately receive the great recognition of the Academy Awards
