...process of identification, which shows the discontinuity in our identity formation). The first one is necessary, but the second one is truer to our postcolonial conditions. (Hall) Hong Kong identity is not fixed; it changes from time to time and is determined by the social-political changes. (Jonathan) Mass media (films) can somehow construct some kinds of ideologies or identities and indicate the attitude and value behind identity in a society. (Ping-Kwan) In this paper, we will investigate how 1970s’ films, New Wave Movie in 1980s and 1990s’ films reflect the social changes and construct HK identity. After the 1967’s Riots, Hong Kong people had to face keen competition and social conflict and instability. Most of them had to face great pressure and discontent was widespread in the society. (李以莊) Watching movies such as “One-Armed Swordsman” (獨臂刀) [1967] and “The Big Boss” (唐山大兄) [1971] become one of the tools or ways for them to vent their pressure and emotions. Moreover, in the early 70s, the society was rife with corruption. The corruption of the Hong Kong police and the government officers became a climate of Hong Kong. This phenomenon was corrosive to both the foundations of society and relationship between the police/government officers and the public. (Pak Tong) The Hong Kong government was therefore urged to found ICAC to deal with problem of corruption in 1974. At that time, “The House of 72 Tenants” (七十二家房客) [1973] revolved around 72 people who live in......

The Island

...The Island In an isolated building, thousands of people are trapped. A theory goes around this building among the people who lives there. All the people are ‘’the survivors’’, who has survived something, which has killed every other person outside the building. There is absolutely no life outside this particular building. They are lucky to be here, because they were rescued. Their only hope in life, is to win some kind of lottery, which means they are going to be moved to a sacred place called The Island, instead of living in this building, where they do everything the same way everyday. Everything in this building, which they live in, is a very sterile environment. Everything is white. Everything is placed in a special order, and everything is normal for these people. What they don’t know is, that they are actually clones. They’ve been captured, to participate in a huge experiment, made by some rich men – including a man called Dr. Merrick. From the moment they were picked, till they were ‘’born as a clone’’ they have been laid in a building with lots of clones next to each other. Every clone sees the same ‘’show’’ about how great this ‘’Island’’ is. They have been hypnotised into wanting something, they didn’t even know existed, before they were coming to this place. When they are born as clones, they all wants to go to The Island, because this should be the dream place to be. Dr. Merrick is the man who rules everything in this isolated building. He knows every......

The Island

...The Island In the year 2019, the world is contaminated. Thousands of ‘people’ are led to believe that they live in an isolatet building, which contains noncontaimed survivers. What they do not know is that they are clones; created to be harvestet for their bodyparts and that there is no contamination what so ever. Because they have been manipulated, the only thing that they strive for is to win the lottery, meaning to be chosen to go to The Island – the only uncontamined place left on the planet, the place which gives them hope and a purpose in their lives. The lottery is only an excuse to get the clones to leave their safe surroundings willingly, without them knowing anything about their destiny and to avoid any suspicion. Their sponsors – the people who pay a lot of money to be cloned are not aware of what is actually going on. They have been told that the clones are maintained in a persistent vegetative state, that they never achieve consciousness. The clones are participants in a huge unethical project, which the rest of the world is oblivious to and the man who runs the company, Dr. Merrick is the one behind the fraud. 
The building the clones live in is portraied as a very cold and sterile enviroment. Every room is bright and white. The white color is a consistens feature and the residents are all wearing identical white outfits. 
Everything from moodswings to a little change in sleeppatterns are automaticly recorded, sexual behavior is non-existent, because the......

...Question #1 „Would you buy Blockbuster stock or short it at the time of the case? How about Netflix? Why?“ That’s a difficult question because the case was written in November 2007 and at that time BlockbusterInc. I would prefer to sell the shares of Blockbuster Inc. because their management made a lot of wrong decisions in the past, which still affects the market share and the outlook of the company. We think that it was a big mistake to 
underestimate the importance of entering the online DVD retail market as soon as possible. This decision was a perfect example of marketing myopia because it wasn’t very customer orientated. They had seen themselves in the video retailing business but they are in the entertainment business and they under-emphasized customer needs and wants. And if you look at the stock quotation of Blockbuster Inc. you can see that there is a peak in 2002 (fifth consecutive year of same-store sales growth; IPO of Netflix) and after that the share price decreases significantly until today. 
Failures in the management stopped their growth and that‘s why Blockbuster Inc. is a perfect example for marketing myopia. If you look at Netflix the situation is completely different. Their management didn’t make the same mistakes. They are very customer oriented and they changed their marketing strategy to satisfy customer needs and facilitate the access to a huge personalized movie library even if the customer isn’t very familiar with the Internet or the......

...Blockbusters Strategic Plan By: Jessica Spears Blockbuster is a leading global provider of in-home rental and retail movie and game entertainment. The company operates in the US, Europe, Latin America, Australia, Canada, Mexico and Asia. They have been in the business since 1985 when founder David Cook opened up his first Blockbuster video rental store in Dallas, Texas. It wasn’t until 1989 that the company acquired its first store out of country in both Canada and London. David’s Cook’s previous experience in the software industry really helped as a crutch when creating a new model for managing a video rental store. In the first couple years of business Blockbuster acquired Erol’s Video a video retailer and Major Video, a 175 store chain retailer. David’s early success came from superior inventory management techniques, magnetic data strips on movie boxes and sensors at the door to discourage theft, membership cards, and a dramatically increased movie selection. (Koening, pg c-29) Despite the early success of the new model, in 1986 Blockbuster was in financial distress and the company ended its year with a $3.2 million loss. In 1987, Wayne Huizenga bought Blockbuster entertainment and was soon joined by two investors who purchases stock in the company. Shortly after that Wayne expanded the company focus from franchise model to store ownership which made a huge difference in the company’s success. In the late 1993, Blockbuster became an acquisition target for...

...* Should Blockbuster have known that dramatic change to their Business Plans would be necessary? Blockbuster didn’t have a technology problem, because digital distribution was minimal, but rather a customer problem. It gave customers no reason to visit stores in lieu of the latest and greatest hit. ( Forbes Nov 8, 2013) * When should they have sensed or perceived a change to their business would be necessary? Lack of ease of accessibility and higher prices in connection to other video rental outlets. Blockbusters main competitors such as Netflix, Redbox, and many On Demand services seem to have a much better grasp of the importance of instant access at a lower price. (Blockbuster Inc. (SWOT analysis). * When should they have innovated or changed their plans to comprehend the perceived changes? Blockbuster’s biggest mistakes were that it failed to modernize its business strategy to include a multi-channel avenue for its customers to decide how they wanted to rent movies. Movie renters were and still are moving away from the traditional format of renting movies. Failure to adapt to changing consumer behavior and new technology helped companies like Netflix and Redbox gain considerable ground in the video rental industry. * What should they have considered when looking at their Porter’s Model?

Defense Mechanisms and the Movie Shutter Island

...What types of defense mechanisms do we use on a regular basis to avoid reality? How positive are they? Andrew Laeddis is the main character in the movie Shutter Island. He suffers from schizophrenia and many other mental problems. The trigger happened after one day he came back home from work and discovered that his wife had killed his three children. She was mentally ill and felt no remorse for what she just did so Andrew killed her. As a result of such traumatic experience, he unconsciously invented another self, created another story in which someone else had committed his wife’s and his own crime. He even denied having any children. At the end he drives himself crazy, and ends up in a mental institution. It’s also important to mention that he went to war and he had lived traumatic experiences prior to his family’s murder. This is a great example for what is called “’defense mechanisms” and how they affect our lives. Everyday people are faced with problems, traumas, difficulties and emotional (and even physical) pain. The mind, in order to protect itself from pain, usually creates these defense mechanisms such as denial, habit, behavioral changes, isolation of affect, etc. Even though defense mechanisms can be positive for protecting the individual against trauma, they can be extremely destructive in using them without awareness and control. Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud researched defense......

Movie Review

...Hancock Being a movie fanatic, life is measured by when the next big movie release is going to be. One of the movies I have been looking forward to for a while was Hancock. Unfortunately, the movie was released in theatres during the summer when I was visiting Hong Kong and by the time I got back, it wasn’t in theatres anymore so I had to wait for the movie to be released on DVD. The movie is directed by Peter Berg and stars Will Smith and Charlize Theron. The movie takes place in modern day Los Angeles and revolves around an alcoholic superhero named Hancock that doesn’t care about his appearance and seen as a homeless, played by Will Smith. Unfortunately, due to his alcoholic problems, when he is saving people and taking out criminals, he causes a lot of property damage and puts other civilians in danger, which makes the citizens of Los Angeles somewhat despise him. The beginning of the movie follows Hancock in his adventures around Los Angeles bringing criminals to justice while causing a lot of destruction along the way. The movie then goes to another main character; a public relations manager played named Ray Embrey who just unsuccessfully tried to pitch a new charity logo to some corporate executives and is on his way home when he gets stuck on some train tracks while a train is coming. Hancock then comes just in time to save him, but derails the train in the process. The people around the scene start to boo him, but Ray thanks him for saving his life and......

...(Block)Busting the Movie Rental Industry June 1, 2005 BEM 106 Final Paper Zhan Wang Harrison Stein Chin Yeung Siu Ruiqi Rachel Wang Introduction: Since the 1910s when Charlie Chaplin created his first silent films, movies have been a staple in American culture. For over half a century, “the big screen” was the only link between first released Hollywood films and captivated audiences nationwide. The advent of modern technology like the VHS tape and the DVD, however, has provided viewers with a convenient way of viewing movies, new and old, no longer playing in theaters. In addition, cost considerations have made DVDs and VHS tapes ideal for short-time rentals. Thus these inventions and the terms of their usage have helped to create a movie-rental market within the larger movie industry. Rentals and other theater substitutes have become essential to the movie watching experience because the theater no longer holds the monopoly it once did. While movie theaters are still widely popular, many people dislike the inconvenience of finding a local theater playing the right movie, driving there, and then standing in long lines to buy a ticket. Some do not appreciate the large crowds that often include cell phone talkers and loquacious teenagers. And some simply don’t want to shell out ten dollars to a movie that has the chance of being Ishtar. For whatever reason, there is a large demand for rentals and substitutes from audiences who want to see the movies......
