Everyone Needs a Steady Infusion of New Content

 “Fight for honor! Fight for the man beside you! Fight for those who bore you! Fight for your children! Fight for your future! Fight for your name to survive! Fight! For immortality!” Theseus, “Immortals,” Relativity Media, 2011

Not long-ago research firm Omdia projected that global SVOD subs would increase to nearly 1.5B by the end of the year and pay TV would remain relatively level at 1.03B.


Growth Everywhere – Appointment TV may not dominate today’s at home entertainment but it’s still the first choice for folks to watch in certain parts of the globe and of a certain age. (Yes, they probably have more disposable income than your Gen Zers.)

Not bad for the movie/series delivery marketplace if it were all one market and if the only people competing for the streaming market were the big five – Netflix, Disney (Disney+), WBD’s (Warner Bros Discovery) HBO Max, Amazon (Prime), Paramount +.

That ain’t the case!

Bringing the Movie House Home

 I hear patience is a virtue.  But I ain’t never been able to wait to see if that’s true.” – Jim Beckworth, “The Harder They Fall,” Netflix, 2021

We really like movies.

In fact, we watched two pretty decent movies last weekend.

Clicked through our streaming services, found a couple on our “gotta catch this” list and watched them.

It’s been that way for several years … even before the pandemic. 

There are films from here and abroad with good plots, good scripts, good acting, good editing/post work.

The award folks have consistently looked down their noses at such projects – unless they’re getting paid to be in them – but to each their own.

It takes a really great film to get us out of the house and into a theater seat.
