Ok, so I just read this article at The Hollywood Reporter where both Steven Spielberg and George Lucas talk about the death of cinema and the 'implosion' they see coming in the near future where fewer movies will get theatrical releases, they will play like Broadway shows (in the theaters for a year or so) and will cost an arm and a leg to see. I hope to sweet Jesus this doesn't happen. I have a hard enough time getting to the movies as it is, and justifying spending the doe on the whole family is another thing all together. I practically live and breath on Netflix rentals and my local Redbox, and if it takes a year or so for a movie to get a DVD release I will be way behind the times. As it is I usually don't get to follow Oscar season as closely as I want to since I don't get to see the bulk of the nominated films until the following year. What if I was a whole year behind? What if I couldn't see films like 'Argo' and 'Silver Linings Playbook' until 2014?!?! I don't know if this is bitter old men chatting about how their latest pet projects almost went the way of HBO, or if this is legit insider gossip, but the prospect chills my bones.
