TV shows vs movies – Which one is better?

Since high school, I have been a big fan of everything that relates to cinema: TV shows, movies, cartoons, actors and so on. And even now, I hang out with my friends and kill time by talking over and over again about new movies, trailers, or TV shows; when will a movie come out in theaters or what’s going to happen in the next episode of a TV show. If I’m good at something, this would probably be my field.  I do wonder sometimes, which one I prefer more, a full 10-20 episode-TV show or a one and a half hour movie?

If you didn’t figure it out by now, we live in The Golden Age of everything that means cinematography. Movies, got better, TV shows got better and longer, actors play better and are cuter too. Yes, cinematography grows day-by-day, and we, the common people crave for the upcoming sequel of a trilogy or a new season for our favorite TV show. But the question remains the same: which one is better? A movie or a TV show?

Obviously, there are pros and cons for both categories. And we shall discuss them.

1. From my point of view 2014 and 2015 were and still are the years of action movies. I swear, these years I have seen a lot of action movies with crimes, guns, superheroes, wars, and the list can go on. As good as they are for their effects, script and the way the actors play their characters, there will be a moment when you’ll just say stop. Enough is enough! Too many action movies, too many Marvel movies. I’d rather watch The Notebook again.

2. Sometimes I have the tendency to re-watch a whole series, episode after episode. Time flies by and after an entire day, I manage to finish a season. Sometimes I am very proud of this but I can get bored very fast too. In these moments, I choose to put aside the TV show and treat myself with a movie. Movies are short, the main idea is straight to the point, there is not that much drama in it, and definitely actors don’t die one-by-one like in Game of Thrones. For this thing right here, you can count on a 90-minute movie.

3. The storytelling in a TV show is better than in a movie. And it is obvious. A series means more than 2 seasons and you will have plenty of time to understand the concept of it, you will get to know the characters on an emotional level as well, you get to choose your favorite character. Until the director will kill him or stab him. Just kidding…

4. TV shows have the luxury of affording to make mistakes. There is that one episode in your favorite series you didn’t enjoy that much. And you probably will not be the only one in this case. TV show directors tend to make these experimental episodes so they can test the audience on their preferences. Movie makers can’t afford that. A failed movie can ruin a whole studio.

If I think about it twice, I’d say that I would prefer to watch or re-watch a TV show until the movie I want to see hits the theaters.

Which one do you prefer? Let me know.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
