    Yes, most of the big movies released are franchises and sequels but we still have PLENTY of original and amazing movies being made and all of these major studios that are making billions of dollars off of these franchises are also funding smaller projects.

    I really like places like grantland and av club

    but I think places like that that make their bread on think pieces and have to put out a certain amount of content

    sometimes just make really dumbass articles and try to make them seem like big revelations

    that's one of them

    there are no original movie articles nowadays, everything is just a rewrite of some better article that never needed to be rewritten

    I blame James Franco and Seth Rogen for opening Pandora's box and making an incredibly stupid movie.

    I mean, for me the movie makes it seem like the US government are the villains.

    Yeah the thing is, I wouldn't even be kinda surprised if the movie actually concluded with them getting high with Kim Jong-Un and becoming best buddies because that's the kind of direction those movies usually take.
    they do not. they kill him. or at least he is killed.

    Gotta be honest

    I am interested in seeing The Interview

    But just like movies set in all sorts of foreign countries, films set in/around either of the Koreas seem inevitably to be embarrassingly inaccurate/offensive.

    Nothing will top the episode of Hawaii 5-0 that features a tropical jungle version of Korea wherein they just merrily travel across the DMZ, though

    Yes, most of the big movies released are franchises and sequels but we still have PLENTY of original and amazing movies being made and all of these major studios that are making billions of dollars off of these franchises are also funding smaller projects.

    And this year was an AMAZING year for all sorts of movies, one of the best in recent memory. Sure, the big AAA movies get the money and the attention and the toys, but they also cost like 5-100x as much as the smaller movies! The scale just changes! Boyhood made nearly 6x it's budget back which is great but if your only metric is "most money" then, yeah, I guess it's a disappointment.

    And just because your budget is triple digits or you're part of a franchise doesn't mean it's shit, either, just like being a movie that cost a grand or was only released in 1 theater or is a Oscar front runner prestige flick doesn't mean it's good!

    Yeah, fuck those types of articles. All your comic movies and insanely budgeted special effects movies did not prevent Grand Budapest and Boyhood and Coherence and Calvary and Cheap Thrills and The Guard and Obvious Child and Cold in July and Blue Ruin and Under the Skin and John Wick and Nightcrawler and The Overnighters and Housebound and What We Do In The Shadows and and and and and from coming out and being great this year.

    dunno, I agree with the gist.

    Studios are more reliant than ever and more interested than ever in franchises, well "ever" being my lifetime anyway

    studios are more risk averse and less likely to fund smaller movies now than before, well certainly than the indie boom of the 90's where they set up divisions specifically to fund smaller movies. You just need to see how many production houses are behind a small movie to see how difficult they are to finance.

    "smugness" or whatever aside, I don't think he's wrong about that.

    Also that statement is terrible

    "they have done terrible things to stop the release of this film.

    So we aren't going to release it, you win"

    We are deeply saddened at this brazen and successful effort to suppress the distribution of a movie and are extremely disappointed by the outcome that we ourselves have brought about

    How does this work? The movie opens in a week, are they going to recall all the reels they already sent out?

    Will it be illegal for a smaller chain to decide to show it since they already have it?

    There's nothing wrong with giving in to threats. It is good to resist them if you can, but there's nothing wrong with giving in.

    They stand by the right to free expression, but won't do anything to enforce it.

    I was mildly interested in seeing "The Interview". This sucks.

    From what I have heard about their security I would probably use a different word than brazen. Ain't nothing bold about finding a notepad file named Usernames&Passwords.

    i mean this is something addressed in the article

    must've been past the halfway mark, though

    Wow, according to Cnn yes. How fast things change. I was a projectionist about 9 years ago and the majority of films were still analogue.

    and I wonder about my neighbors even though I don't have them
    but they're listening to every word I say

    also i found that article an interesting read. i generally like mark harris so i was "giving him the benny" shall we say on his apparent thesis, but i wouldn't characterize the piece as "another cranky middle-aged man complains about marvel movies" (my own cranky reduction of the reductive box i imagine a lot of people here put it in right away)

    I know the cheap theater around here definitely still uses film.

    Unless they've started scratching the picture in digital versions now.

    I hope they double down for an early 2015 release with commercials boasting this is the movie the terrorists don't want you to see
