  2. I also think we tend here to think about Disney has a “studio” instead of a “brand”. They’re a large, evil media conglomerate, for sure, but they’re also about building EVENTS. Whether you are going on a cruise, or taking that trip to Disney Land/World, or having the fairytale wedding, or going out the big Marvel blockbuster — it’s all about going out, socializing, and spending money on that Disney lifestyle/fandom. Going strictly streaming doesn’t really jive with that overall mood. I am not saying that aren’t banking on Disney+ or they won’t hang on it as a clutch going forward. I fully expect a “month theatric exclusive”, then a month or two of theater/Disney+ exclusive, then open to all PVOD as their MO to come.

  4. I have recently started Doctor Who "from the beginning" (aka NuWho) on HBO MAX. I had watched most series as it aired basically until mid Capaldi/Peak Moffat Up His Own Ass Bullshit had me drop it. I watched a couple of Thirteen, but never finished. It's fun cause I remember the broad stroke of things, but not a lot of the details. NINE. In one word: Fantastic. Christopher Eccleston is criminally underrated, and its such, such, such, a shame that due to some BTS nonsense he only did one Series. Highlight: Empty Child/The Doctor Dances. I could watch Nine/Rose/Jack for DAAAAYS. TEN/ROSE. Great episodes from a writing POV. Solid, full concepts. Highlights: Tooth & Claw. NGL, I was ready for her to move on by the end of it. Sexy!Doctor got old quick, and they were a little too swarmy/up each other's own ass a the end of things. I am mostly here for the Mickey Redemption Arc. And Harriet Jones, PM ("We Know Who You Are!") TEN/MARTHA. It's just such a god damn shame. The Doctor is so mean to Martha. I hate it. That two-parter where he's human and she's stuck as the servant is torture. It's not all bad though, cause Martha, despite the Doctor being a DICK, is Brilliant. Her and Jack bonding over the Doctor being a dick... :chef'skiss: Highlights: The Shakespeare Code, Blink I JUST started Ten/Donna, and I AM SO READY. God, I hope it's a good as I remember. But, don't tell. As River Song would say, "Spoilers."
  5. Same! I ended up with: Jurassic Park Jaws Close Encounters of The Third Kind Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade 1941 ET Schindler’s List Hook Catch Me If You Can Empire of The Sun Because much to @Plain Old Tele’s Chagrin, I ranked mind based off of my favorite John Williams’ scores And sorry not sorry, Hook and 1941 are fantastic. I went back-and-forth between Jaws and Jurassic Park. I don’t particularly like Jaws, but I firmly believe that movie is so iconic because of the score. It does about 94% of the work. The other 5% is that brilliant scene of the three of them on the boat talking about the Annapolis. With the last 1%, obviously, being that line: “you’re gonna need a bigger boat.” But I have to give it to Jurassic Park. The “Welcome to Jurassic Park” Scene is such a mic drop. It’s what movies are made for. 🥰🥰
  6. We’re going to start Duel in half an hour. Let’s see if it lives up to the hilariously idiosyncratic THX 1138. Cap is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  7. Remember that amazing time when George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were considered bold, young filmmakers instead of the old hacks that created the modern blockbuster and thus destroyed adult cinema? Me too! We got two of their films up this week. Lucas's THX 1138 is tonight. Come watch our young Anakin before he turns into Darth Vader. Cap is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  8. Join us: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5423825182?pwd=T1VuUmJ5OVB1ZjRNQmNHRVpDQ3lkUT09 room opens at 1:50 and we start at about 2:05
  9. We obviously don’t have a crystal ball. We don’t know how the vaccine distribution will go, if people will take them, etc. And we all know that most of the theaters will not survive their current form without another six months of content. That all said, The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the Gold Star Standard when it comes to IP/Brands. It is. Full Stop. Haters to the left. Before the pandemic, they were one of the only large fandom properties that consistently got people in to the theaters, that consistently created positive buzz on social media, and that consistently turned a profit. If there is anything that will get people back to a movie theater in May, it is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They have WandaVision coming in January 15, 2021. No reason to drop Black Widow on Disney+ before May. They’re going to be able to keep the stans subbed up from Jan-March on that. The Falcon and Emo Boy are coming around June-July. That is a nice bit of content with no overlaps (which is how they normally do it). I never expected Black Widow to make like 100+ on its opening weekend. I felt that between her arc already finishing in Endgame, the movie coming out probably like five years later than it should’ve, and ScarJo being ScarJo, we were going to see some cooling off before the A Team (Eternals, Strange, Thor, BP) showed up. That said, I still think it can open strong. Particularly if Marvel does Marvel and markets it as “We’re Back and So Are The Movies” Event of 2021. But it’s not going to Disney+.
  10. They just dropped an article about moving things to Disney+ and Widow was mentioned as a non-starter. There is also no real incentive to do it after Mulan premiumgate was a flop. May 2021 is a go.
