Netflix will provide that for War Machine, but it is beginning to seem silly and meaningless, since it’s not how this project will be consumed globally.BART: Let’s not get carried away, Mike. A theatrical release is still a smart and reasonable mandate. There are elements of the Academy process that don’t make sense any more — an example is the requirement that documentaries need a New York Times review to qualify for Oscar nomination. But leave the movie stuff alone.
QuoteIt's important to spread the message about movies. Most people like TV shows and virtual reality better now, or even internet games, but we shouldn't forget about movies, because there's been some good ones over the years like Diner and American graffiti. If people forgot about movies, we're in deep shit. So that's the main reason you should wear this hat. And don't be afraid to use it as a conversation starter. If someone asks you, "so what's the deal with the cap?" Just answer: "spreading the gospel, my brother". Be extra nice, since if you wear the hat, you're representing all movies. It's a lot of responsibility so don't take it lightly, like Spider-Man.
QuoteHow did you come to navy blue and white?I tested out several other colors, like green and red, but I liked the way navy blue looked the best. The hard part was picking out the font. And putting a slight curve on it.
QuoteBlown away by how many people want the 'movies' hat. 76 in 2 days! Can't wait to wear these things with everybody.
QuoteEleanor Wilson Am I the only woman who wants the 'movies' hat? We should probably discuss the gender gap in the hat industry.

Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on September 30, 2015, 01:53:18 PMMovies themselves are largely to blame for driving "discerning consumers" to TV.
Quote from: jenkins<3 on September 30, 2015, 02:20:06 PMthen you said that's because bad movies are the ones that people go to and which make money
Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on September 30, 2015, 01:53:18 PMWhen the majority of theatrical releases are reboots or sequels or involve superheroes, [...]And now we're at a point where those are the only things that seem to reliably make money.

Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on September 30, 2015, 01:53:18 PMObviously digital releases and home theater systems are also to blame. People, myself included, are not as excited to pay a premium to see indie films at their local Landmark when they can get a roughly equivalent version at home at the same time or earlier.

Quote from: Jeremy Blackman on September 30, 2015, 01:53:18 PMThere's also the fact that TV shows are (1) significantly more addictive and (2) almost infinitely convenient to consume. A potent combination
