BBG Communications

The BBG Communications blog is kind of something I invented. I thought it would be interesting to discuss through different communication techniques things that I am interested in. I like to look at new job opps, classic car stuff, and sports.

300 MILLION THUMBS POINTING IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS

Going to the movies at the theater can be an enjoyable experience, depending on the movie, of course. It can also be very expensive. Ticket prices cost a lot more money than they used to. If you want popcorn, candy, soda, or all three, you will need to have a considerable amount of money to blow.

So, going to the movies and choosing which one to see is somewhat of an important decision. I suppose that is the reason why movie critics exist. Everybody has opinions, but those of movie critics seem more important than anyone else’s. They get to see movies before the general public does, and then form their thoughts about the film. This is an opinion which an unknown percentage of Americans really take seriously or care about, because opinions vary, and sometimes you just have to see the movie for yourself to know if you will like it or not. There are some people who either stay away from a certain film, or go right out and see it based on a critic’s review. And that has to be great for a critic, to know that their review has influenced someone’s decision. However, there are so many critics for various media outlets, and often reviews about a particular movie will be mixed.  Americans just have to take a chance, spend their money, and form their own opinion after the movie (or ten minutes into the movie in some unfortunate cases). Box offices around the country generate enormous amounts of revenue, regardless of whether critics label a movie as disgusting trash or a brilliant treasure.

I have never had a job. If I am ever lucky enough to be hired by someone, I will be extremely grateful, no matter what the job or pay. I think being paid to watch a movie and share an opinion of it would be an incredible occupation to have. Watching movies is something everybody does, and it almost always costs money. Everybody has thoughts on movies and they don’t get paid for discussing them. Movie critics do. Being a movie critic isn’t the highest paying job in the world or the most enjoyable, but it’s kind of like being paid for being a regular person.
