Home Decor Failure in Super 8 the Movie

Super 8 is a very good movie. I’ve read reviews that have criticized it, particularly the ending, but that is a critic’s job. I have only one criterion for movies and that is did I like it. I liked this one. This movie is action packed, funny in parts (unfunny at times when trying to be funny), scary and just plain fun.It successfully creates the homage to Steven Spielberg that J. J. Abrams intended. It’s a few parts Goonies, a few parts Close Encounters of the Third Kind and a little bit E.T.Although I am not a movie critic my son does run an online home gift and decor store so I want to poke fun at the drab interiors of the few houses that were shown in the movie. The movie takes place in 1979 as evidenced from a TV news report in the background that the Three Mile Island disaster had just occurred. Yet the home interiors look like they are out of the 1950’s. They are drab and depressing. Of course this may have been done for effect, but I’m not sure what effect they were going for. The movie is engaging and upbeat overall so it wouldn’t have killed the set designers to throw in a few nice indoor statues, a decorative mirror or two, gothic candlesticks or some nice lamps.This is middle class 1979 America that we are talking about here. Today you can get great statues and other decorative home decor for $35.00 on up so it must have been even cheaper back then (except for that nasty inflationary bubble that was still around).I am in awe of creative talent because I don’t have any. The creative talent behind many modern movies are special effects and set designers. The special effects in most movies (even movies that I don’t particularly like) blow me away because I do not have the vision that it takes to create them. If you see too many special effects movies in a row the effects can all start looking the same, but really they are distinct works of art (if you want to argue what art is with me don’t bother – I’m not that interested in the subject).You don’t even have to go to special effects for this. Before today’s special effects, the mainstay of many movies was the chase scene (it still is, but oftentimes special effects are incorporated). Creating a chase is not easy. You have to design every twist and turn, every explosion, every side swipe and so on. I’ve been told that there are writers that specialize in chase scenes. This may not be the forte of the main screenplay writer so he or she uses the services of a specialist to write a chase scene.Back to Super 8. The lifeless home interiors in the movie seem more appropriate for today than the 1970’s. Today we have massive economic problems. Households may look drab because of high unemployment and record foreclosure rates. Houses in 1979 should look more optimistic. They should be filled with decorative fountains, unique vases, wall friezes and most of all gargoyles statues. That’s right – gargoyles. One thing about gargoyles is that you can throw them into any type of decor and they liven things up.This now officially makes me a movie critic and probably the only one who has addressed home decor. Next time I see a movie that has a scene in a restaurant I’m going to criticize the silverware.

Home Decor Ideas For Your Dream Home

In today’s world, house is a big investment when it comes to long term planning. That is why having a good looking, neat and clean house has become a need nowadays for almost everyone around us. You house is something about which you might have dream of for years and years together. Everyone has an urge for having a beautiful house. Your house reflects your personality, your style and your ideas. That is why having a good home decor becomes very important. Home decor means decorating your home with colors, painted walls, articles and antique pieces so that you can make your home look like the one which you have always wished for.Home decor consists of decorating all the rooms properly as per the space available and the time to be spent in each of the rooms. For example, if you are considering the hall, it requires to be very presentable for any guests who come in. It cannot be untidy. It gives people your first impression. The bed room needs to be very cozy and comfortable with preferably light colors, so that the environment is very pleasant. The kitchen needs to be such that it should not look too congested or dirty. Normally, this is the space in the house where in there is maximum mess expected. So you need to arrange things properly and in a systematic manner in the kitchen. Again, if you are considering decorating the guest room, it needs to be very presentable and comfortable. When it comes to the kids room, it should be free from any dust or unwanted material. There should be lots of paintings of animals or flowers or even soft toys.Children love this kind of an ambiance in their room. Normally, the house should be colored in such a way that the touch is soft. The furniture also needs to be of good quality and limited so that the house does not get filled with only furniture and there is no space left else where. When it comes to selecting the floor, it should be such that it does not get dirty frequently or it is very easy to clean the floor as and when needed. White marble or white floor often starts giving a dirty look very soon as compared to darker shades. That is why not many people go for complete white shades. Instead, you can take darker shades. Your bathroom also needs to be very comfortable and spacious with good background. There are different types of accessories which can be used for decorating the house.For example, you can keep some antique pieces, glassware or wall hangings in the hall or bed room. These add a finishing touch to the rooms thus giving them a bright and a colorful appearance. At the same time, the colors which you choose should not be too dark and contrast. This normally gives a cheap and a dull look to the rooms. Colors should be classy and such that they suit the nature of the room. It is very important that they should give you the right feel when you are entering into a specific room.Many people also consider decorating their halls with flowers or creepers in the balcony. This adds some warmth to the house. People normally like to see a bit of nature around them, specially when they are relaxing or just taking a respite. You can also keep things like flower vases or flower pots in the hall or in the bed room. This also adds to the pleasant look of the rooms.The lights in the rooms also should be such that the house does not look too bright or unnecessarily bright. For example, you can select dim light shades in the bedroom and brighter ones in the kitchen and the hall. Normally, people prefer to have shades in orange or yellow more than white. This is because white often gives a very formal and official look to the house. In short, lights should add to the beauty of the house and not decrease it by extra illumination.When it comes to selecting the right furniture, your furniture should be such that it is just not too much to occupy the entire room gets unnecessarily. It should be such that it is very comfortable and at the same time gives you space in the room. Nowadays, people prefer to go for small dining tables which are mostly kept at one corner of the house, so that unlike the big dining table which is kept in between, this one does not block the road for any one who wants too roam around freely in the room. Whenever, people want to have their dinner, they can go and sit on the dining table. This gives the room a better and a clean look.Some of the other important aspects of home decor are how to keep your house free from any dust, how to get rid of unwanted odors, how to get rid of unwanted creatures, how to maintain the furniture or the color or even how to clean your house, specially the floor and the ceilings.Basically, if you add your own personal touch and style to decorating your house rather than giving the task to others, you yourself can be and can feel more comfortable and free when you are living in the house. At the same time, home decor is not at all an easy task. An enormous amount of time, energy and patience needs to go into it. You need to plan your budget and likings in such a way that the whole affair does not get too expensive and at the same time it is classy. Even a small house can be beautiful and even a big house can be untidy at times, if not given the right attention. You really do not need to have a palace or castle to build your house of dreams. It just takes ideas flowing in the right manner.
