Been dead. The standalone movie is gone. Everything now follows the Star Wars model where they just keep making the same movie/series over and over. Marvel, etc...

Of course they are dead, the future world is a world where no one interacts in person.

I thought Martin Scorsese did a great job with Casino, Goodfellas, and other things. I do continually question why Italians [specifically, Calabrians] are presented so often as organized criminals in Hollywood movies. Not that it's completely wrong. I do get annoyed when scummy Jews play the name-change game [porn directors and stars like Anthony Spinelli = Samuel Weinstein, Richard Pacheco = Howie Gordon, and Ron Jeremy Hyatt, who dropped the Hyatt (among others), and some in Hollywood, like Jonah Hill Feldstein, who dropped the Feldstein].

Simply dropping the last name to sound more Goyish is one thing, but Jews making themselves Italian personally offends me. As if Italians haven't done enough of the things we are blamed of to have Jewish filth topping it off.

As for why I talk about this so much - in addition to finding the above offensive, I refuse to allow Jews to be sacrosanct and their crimes to be verboten, because that's bullshit. Why the fuck should I have had to learn so much of this stuff on the internet in comments' sections?  ::)

Comments sections which are, I should point out, increasingly disappearing.

And that's what's happening to cinema too. Things like big screen TV's with super HD, and probably even VR headsets where you can apparently sit in an actual theatre and watch a movie are big competition for movie theatres.

Back to Scorsese and my previous point, he had Leonardo DiCaprio play Jewish conman Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street". Like, could he have picked a less Jewish actor to play that financial swindler?  ::)

On top of that, that movie was just a piece of shit. Grotesque movie, which made ripping people off and running financial scams "sexy".

I won't watch a new Martin Scorsese movie ever again because of that shit movie.

Yes- and big screen TVs have helped that to happen long before Fauxvid!


Plus, I no longer have to sit for 20 min watching commercials before the movie...

Great video. The part about cinema versus content starts at 14:23.

IRONAT ... I agree that movies are not dead but movie theaters are soon to be.

Buy I kinda/sorta believe that the actors/actresses will be busier than ever before due to the fact that more films are being produced than ever before for online services.

And we  are just seeing the beginning of in-home TV screens and audio.
Here in Vegas the sport books have 'screens' that seem to use small 'light bulbs' in lieu of pixels which just might be found in homes soon enough.

And if these VR headsets ever become popular, you'll be watching movies in your living room in which you become a major participant.

LOL, we are entering an anti-social era created by the most socially awkward group, Asians.  You can't make this stuff up.

Acting salaries for the top have to be plummeting.  Acting salaries for the lower actors has always been terrible.

I look at the list of 50 highest grossing films and I don't want to see any of them.  I probably have only seen one or two of the movies on this list.

If cinema is dead, it is because the people running it, and the actors, killed it with their out of touch behavior.

You don't here much from Robert Downey Jr., he's probably been in ten $billion dollar movies by now.  The people you hear from are Alyssa Milano and Patton Oswald, basically the D list.

Unfortunately, the Hollywood studio's all seem to be doing well financially.

Mostly kids films and super hero movies (also for kids) is keeping them afloat.  China is financing them as well.

Yes, people don't want to sit through a 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hour film anymore. I love film but I even have a hard time watching something straight through. Also the cable series or mini-series has quietly snuck in, and dethroned the feature film as the best way to tell a story. Much nicer to watch a fully fleshed out story usually.

Everything is hooked into sequels and merchandising tie ins. See the shitty comic movie, then buy the t-shirt and the book, then wait for shitty comic movie 2, now with more computer.

Also, I wonder about the development of new talent. I have absolutely no want to follow most of these new stars. Most haven't demonstrated range.

I think that might have more to do with RDJ getting drunk (or high) and ending up in his neighbor’s backyard a few times and being faced with jail time?

Harvey Weinstein turned Alyssa Milano’s butthole into day old oatmeal.

It's a good thing for him because without Nike he'd be a homeless ex NFL player.

Why Martin Scorsese is Right About Marvel Movies.




Scorsese @2:00 -
"I thought for a while maybe long form TV was cinema.  It's not, it simply isn't.  It's a different viewing experience.  You can look at three episodes, two, ten."


Scorsese:
    “I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema... Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

He's right.
Must be especially tough for somebody like him who has real life experience and emotional investment.
