  1. Netflix sticking up for Netflix because he has a Netflix Original movie being released soon…but Netflix could do.m no wrong so he's right

  2. okja. they've already try ed sabotaging I was there there played it so the movie was in I different aspect ratio got people to boo so they stopped it. but I'm determined to see it. it looks amazing. I don't care were it comes from as long as the film is good

  3. I don't think it's a bad thing that only theatrically released films are up for consideration at the Cannes film festival. I don't see how that's any different from their rules against made for TV movies.

  4. Inevitably the old school will always try to kill out the new wave of things to come. I love watching movies at the theater, especially now that many have implemented reserved recliner seats, but there is still much to be desired. The cost is still up there, having to deal with other people who often can distract or even ruin a movie and of course studios current preference on traditional means of distribution.

    But at the end of the day, its clear where things are going. The age of theaters probably wont be around 20 years from now. And that scares the old establishment. Netflix or online distribution is still flawed, plagued by buffering and low quality to fight the bottleneck of online connectivity but eventually that wont be much of an issue.

  5. Men are superior in sports because nature. Women get less sports money because no one cares about their events because they're inferior at these sports.

  6. So once again, fuck the French. Why in the ever loving cock biscuits did we ever bother liberating them from Germany again? They are just as fascist, possibly even more so, than their own occupiers. Should have either A: not bothered with D-Day, or B: instead of nuking Nagasaki and Hiroshima, two cities that arguably didn't deserve their fate, should have been Dieppe and Normandy.
