What makes a Movie work
#3
DIRECTING: The director isn't afraid to make a big movie... thinks of creative ideas of his own, yet also gives his co-workers freedom to add in their input.

CAST: Movies are succesful when they have one or two famous actors (for the crowd followers) mixed with one or two rookies that eventually will grow to be famous (for the future crowd followers :o).

STORY: A bit of everything... love story for the romantics, seriousness for food for thought, action for everyone, and some comedy to add some spice! (I agree with Captiang that the story line one of the most important parts in a movie)

MUSIC: Music is one of the most important factors of a movie that is often forgoted, but if it is left out, then the movie won't work! It must have a great composer to develop a classic tune or two for the movie. One can always identify these tunes to their movies... Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jaws, Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, etc. A theme song helps as well.

SPECIAL EFFECTS: Special effects that add to the movie without taking the audience's mind from the story. An example of when special effects have gone bad ar Matrix 2, Day after Tomorrow, and Star Wars:Attack of the Clones... Good special effects: Pirates, Matrix 1, LOTR, etc.

EDITING: The movie must flow together... I hate movies that are choppy and hard to follow.

SELLING IT: Putting together a trailer and posters that won't give away too much of the plot, yet give the viewer a good taste of the movie is important for the box office sales.
