Disney Plans to Spend $33B on Content Next Year

Quote:
Disney says it will spend $8B more on content in 2022 than 2021, mostly on shows and movies for its streaming platforms.
Quote:
“The increase is driven by higher spend to support our DTC expansion and generally assumes no significant disruptions to production due to COVID-19,” the company wrote in the annual report. In other words, the $8 billion content boost is driven by the company’s streaming initiatives at Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+, rather than any of the company’s linear TV or film businesses.

After 30 years, Widescreen Review is calling it quits with their print publication and will be going to digital only. I have been a subscriber for 20 of those years and can say that it has been the only magazine I have stayed with consistently. Pretty obvious this was going to happen, but still kinda bummed.

That’s saddening, but I’m not surprised. The quality have dropped down quite dramatically in the past 4-5 years. Still a very good read nevertheless.

Agreed. I actually grabbed hold of an idea or two over the years as a reader. I remember reading a story about overhead channels in the movie We Were Soldiers long before Atmos, and thought that would be damn cool.

I hope you are doing better, and like the rest of us you have something good to watch all this long weekend.

I just went with restored 4K Shawshank Redemption and 4K Indiana Jones set very recently. Really waiting for new releases to come out.

Hawkeye on Disney+ is new with the first two episodes available.

Happy Thanksgiving all.

I had no idea that they were still around. I was a subscriber many moons ago as well. I always chuckle when I read threads complaining about the minutia of a UHD's transfer as I can remember a time when Widescreen Review would label a line doubled Laserdisc transfer as "filmlike". Such was the state of the art at the time lol..

I'm pretty sure that it was the back page guy of Widescreen Review that gave me the idea to dig out an old JVC pro-logic amp to derive a rear center channel from my imported Japanese LD of the Phantom Menace back in the day. I must have listened to that pod race a thousand times! It was magic!

Agreed...That's why us Canadians celebrate it in October.

After years of my kids growing up hearing about my legendary turkey prowess, my vegetarian wife relented to pressure this year and agreed to allow for a bird carcass to be cooked. I hadn't prepared a turkey in almost 30 years.

Just like riding a bicycle...It turned out so awesome that they've already ordered another one for Christmas!!

Happy Thanksgiving !

Here's a try to list the 100 films I would grab in a fire. 100 isn't enough and I cheated in several ways. First of all I ignored TV series (Weeds, Lost, Game of Thrones, Veronica Mars). Second if you see a Franchise that represents the WHOLE series and I just picked my favorite. I'm not suggesting these movies are good or important or enriching but rather these are the ones I enjoy most.

It was just as well, as I decided to spatchcock the turkey like I have with chicken for years. Once you understand that breast meat should actually be juicier than the leg and thigh, you will never cook fowl in any other way again. Of course, with the turkey, it didn't hurt that I have always gently lifted the breast skin so that I could cram as much high quality bacon under it as possible.

My wife's grandfather was a kosher butcher, so that last step was something she'd never considered when she acquiesced this year lol...but the gravy that I make from the drippings of a turkey infused with bacon could convert someone to the religion of my choice...

Interesting. I always thought the juiciest bit is the thigh.

Do you share our tradition of making a (Boxing Day) curry with the leftovers?

Have only glanced at the latest issue, no surprise since they went from 12 to 6 issues annually. My younger brother of Breland and Farmer has told us for some time that printed magazine cost has risen dramatically over the last several years.
