There are several corporate strategies going on here. One is the fact that lots of movies nowadays are "action films" with a lot of digital mickey
mouse and so-so acting which technologically matches this new form of release. Another important factor is that the big film operatives can
basically bankrupt neighborhood theatres and take over by forcing them into unrealistic new projection debt. Distribution per se is simplified
(though filmmakers themselves can still be creative and decide to use real film for the initial filming). ... None of this affects me. I shoot sheet
film, and have solved that whole theatre issue the simple way ... I simply don't go to movies anymore. Why bother if there's nothing special to the experience.
