I see two types here:

Type I cries out that film is dying, and will soon be dead.

Type II cries out that film is not dying, and that Type I people are silly and wrong.

Both types are wrong, and both have turned this into religion.

The truth lies somewhere between what Type I believes and what Type II believe.

I personally thing film is on the decline and will continue to decline, but not to the point of absolute death. No, it will survive as a boutique industry, where 2-3 makers will survive and continue to offer film related products; although those products will be a subset of what is offered today.

I dislike both types; the Type I and IIs as mostly over emotional blow hards full of anecdotal opinions and very little facts.
