Katherine L. Kaidan A37716507 IAH 201 Section 9 Hollywood has produced films that have been international sensations for  many years. But even though films made in the United States are popular  worldwide, international views as United States citizens themselves are not as  respected as the movies. Are the movies produced in Hollywood giving  Americans a bad image? Should it be Hollywood’s responsibility to portray the  United States in a positive image because of the broad audience they attract?  And if Hollywood wants to create a positive image for the United States, should  they target all moviegoers? Or should they just focus on one target audience? Although movies produced in Hollywood have a large viewing audience  globally, it is not necessarily their responsibility to promote a positive image of  the United States. In the past ten years, the majority of movies that have come  out of Hollywood are based on already written books, Broadway musicals,  corresponding to a pre-existing series, or are purely meant to be fantasy. Most of  the films already have an audience that have seen the play or have read the  book and expect the movie to be as similar as possible to the original storyline.

Hollywood producers and directors will lose the existing audience that was drawn  to the original if they changed up the storyline too much.  Almost all movies that are produced in Hollywood, with the exception of a  documentary or movies based on a real life event, are purely meant to be  fictional. It is unrealistic that movies such as ones produced by Michael Bay, who  implements a lot of special effects and large explosions into the movies, are  things that would happen on a daily basis. And because most action movies do

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
