Nope, no problems with serials.

Loved DS9 (and all Star Trek up through Enterprise).

Hate Discovery and Picard.

Gotchya - and Im mostly in the same boat. As I said, most of our preferred content is available streaming-only. The idea of plunking yer butt down at the same time Thursday Night to catch your show on ABC or whatever is long past.

Again, broadcast networks make the last 3 or 4 episodes available for free on their websites, and maybe you haven't heard of DVR?

I know they do. DVR? That’s old school!

Look, we have more than we can possibly watch as it is just with Amazon prime, Netflix and Disney plus. The , I own a ton of discs on top of that. We’ll be fine.

Watched Wonder Women 1984 on our OLED tv yesterday, and the opening IMAX scene looked insane for a streamed version of a movie. Think I'll be fine streaming the other warner movies this year using HBO Max...

Was sadly disappointed that there weren't more Imax scenes in the movie besides the end, which I almost didn't even notice....

You know what critically acclaimed show I tried to get into, got like 3 or 4 seasons in, and just thought to myself "what am I watching? What's the actual plot and point of this?" Mad Men. I do plan on revisiting it at some point, but it bored me to tears when it was on.
No series is for everyone, but Mad Men isn't necessarily that plot-driven. It's mainly just following Draper's life and a look at what someone like Draper's life in that era might've been like. In addition, the series removes the romanticized memories people often have of those days. Yes, we can appreciate the fashion, pop culture, etc, but there were things not acknowledged or simply not seen as problematic. This series highlighted a lot of that without being condescending or dark.

Truly a superb and influential series - at least how I see it.

I'm still boycotting Fox's primetime broadcast for cancelling Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles in 2009.

Ampere: U.S. TV Households Now Average Four Streaming Services

Quote:
LONDON—2020 was a perfect storm to fuel streaming service growth, between the pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns and the launch of a number of major new streaming services. According to a new study by Ampere, that has resulted in the average U.S. household having four streaming services.

In a recent study evaluating the SVOD market in the U.S. and the “big five” Western European markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K.), Ampere found that there were more than 400 million subscriptions to streaming services as of Q3 2020. While U.S. households average four SVOD platforms, European households average two. However, almost 10% are signed up for five or more.

Depends a lot on what the interest rates were to hold onto these films indefinitely, though. They may lose money in payouts but gain it back with the ending of loans and (long term) HBO Max subscriptions.

The pandemic has obliterated the capital of the movie industry. At the rate things are going we'll be lucky if any company other than Disney is making movies next year.

New Trailer for HBO Max’s “Same Day Premieres” (now including footage of Space Jam, Godzilla vs Kong, Mortal Kombat and Conjuring )


Interesting to note they haven’t removed “Dune” from their lineup.

I noticed that too, was half-expecting it to not be in the lineup anymore. But I guess whatever talk there was of it going back to having an exclusive theatrical window was just that, talk.

Oh, and is Matrix 4 actually titled “Matrix” or is that just the place-holder?

God damn, they have some good stuff in the pipeline for the year. I'm happy they are doing this because at least I have some new movies to be excited about. 2020 was so abysmal, but seeing all the movies I was excited to see constantly pushed back or delayed really bummed me out.

Dune and King Richard being still on there means either they worked out deals or are at least still negotiating. There still is a movies subject to change disclaimer, and we know the filmmakers were considering enforcing their exclusive theatrical release contract clauses on them.

I did notice Reminiscence was gone from the line up. Probably confirming the rumors that it would have a regular theatrical release instead (I’m guessing the Nolan connection, it being directed by his sister-in-law, was a factor).

Ok so enough with these quick flashes of footage. Can we actually get a trailer for Godzilla vs Kong, Mortal Kombat, and Conjuring 3 now? They are all 2-4 months away and yet they give us nothing except these flash teases which do nothing for me.

It’s bittersweet for me as such a huge supporter of the theatrical experience, but that line up is killer.

I probably would’ve preferred they went with with something like what Netflix does and have their big films in theaters for 3 weeks before hitting the streaming service (seems to be same window Universal for PVOD). That way it does have some kind of exclusive theatrical window, while being available quickly in order to boost the streaming service. Still, all the delays are so dispiriting, it greats to have big movies to look forward too, and wish films like No Time to Die and Black Widow would come up with some kind of hybrid strategy rather than get delayed again at this point.
