the conversation about random netflix films they enjoyed was actually more interesting than the Cloverfield review itself
Made me laugh when Mike finally realised he had been saying *The Room* instead of *Room*.
I wonder how accurate their prediction of only Disney/Marvel movies being in the cinemas in the future and the different movies will just be on Netflix & Amazon Prime.
They nailed it when they said "Netflix is the new "Direct to video""
Big spoilers for Manchester By The Sea just in case anyone hasn't seen it
I think I have more hope in Netflix in a platform then Mike and Jay do.
I remember one of their first movies they released, Beasts of No Nation, and how FANTASTIC that was. It's interesting how that film, which would have been a monumental release if chugged through theaters during Oscar season, was just snubbed and forgotten completely because it was on Netflix. People don't even associate it with the first big Netflix film.
So I think part of it as that they want their platform to be taken seriously, and that means they need these gigantic blockbuster releases, no matter the quality.
Sorry but Altered Carbon has my interest.
Are movie theaters in US really that terrible? I would never replace cinema experience for watching movie on TV, for much more money than tickets costs, if I want good quality. Never saw anyone clapping in cinema, few times there were some annoying teenagers but they were quickly dealt with.
their point about "just dump it to netflix" becoming a thing is a great one, but i don't think it'll fly on a site like reddit where netflix is worshipped and bright was met with as much fanfare as this sub gave it...
