Thereís people playing professional sports making millions that complain. Címon dawg... donít be dense and donít use personal anecdotes in discussions.
Cmon dawg, ya missing the point, Anthony mackie specifically can choose to not be in marvel movies if he feels so stronly about those type of movies sucking. Hes not a dam sports player that only knows how to play sports so he has to keep playing to support himself. Yeah anyone at any level can complain about anything, but hes sh*tting specifically on superhero movies, of which h'es been in many.

One of the biggest problems is there's no way to stop a horrible big money movie. Hellboy or MIB international for example the powers that be knew those movies were gonnna be trash. They should have stopped production and went back to the drawing board. Nah...These movies studios have some many options to absorb big losses who cares if the movie is trash. Thats why there were only 1 or 2 blockbusters a year. Now these jackasses putting 3 or 4 per studio a year just to see which sticks.

I feel like this whole dialogue boils down to a critique of the method of distribution. There were copious facts dispensed in that video, but one point I think Anthony contradicted himself on was when he said they'd never make the Goonies now in 2019 right before explaining how Stranger Things is the Goonies. My point is that the kind of movies we grew up with are still getting made, they're just not necessarily coming from the big studios anymore and arent getting theatrical releases. Besides, theres only one major studio in Hollywood that makes nothing but tent poles and that's Disney.
I think wat he meant was that stranger things was just a copy of the Goonies, so studios will never make movies with new and original story nowadays, all they do is copy old hit movies, do remakes or sequels

I understand what he's saying but these dudes don't know how to get behind a mic and hold their tongue. He's gonna end up sitting on the sidelines like Terrence Howard watching somebody else get that Marvel check.

... So there will be 2 studios? If you don't see that as an issue. You will
Why do you think there will only be two studios? Which one/ones do you think will go away?

He is right, I guess because he said it so eloquently but also he is apart of the MCU, people did not have a problem with this comment but it is no different than what Martin Scorsese, Jodie Foster and a few others have said about the MCU and was attacked by the Geeks
white ppl gonna be the only ones that have a problem with what he said

I don't think it's that deep.. I think it's more about what you see in the actual theater. Netflix and other streaming services still make all kinds of movies, but it's more about what you're willing to go see at the theater vs watching at home. Hollywood has to adapt to that or even get ahead of what the next thing is going to be vs being on some "back in my day" sh*t.

I'll go see superhero and action sh*t most times that it drops, but psychological thrillers and crime related stuff (which I prefer), I rather watch at the house. It's a different experience now. I used to watch everything at the movies because I wanted to see it on a big screen. I got a big a*s tv at home.. Most people do now.
You got a point, but if all movies dropped in the movies and on some streaming site at the same time do you think movie theatres would survive?

I think people go see superhero movies because it's the popular thing now and they aren't willing to wait 6 months until that sh*t is streaming or in a Red Box. Movie going is an experience. It's like a sporting event and watching live vs watching it in your living room. The problem is, which is the same with sports, the living room experience has caught up with or passed the live experience in most peoples opinions. But there is nothing like being a part of a crowd watching something collectively and reacting. That feeling cannot be replicated my opinion.

sh*t is commentary for the smart dumb folks out there , there's every kind of movie under the sun being made still. Most of them don't get released and have huge theatrical runs cause the time of people going to the movies weekly is done.

Time moves on and streaming services made it so people can see any movie in 10 seconds on their device , so yeah , the routine of being a cinema goer regularly is dead.

Now going to the movies is an event for you and your friends and your family a couple times a year for thrill ride type movies like Avengers or kids cartoons.

Technology forced movies to the small screen , it is what is Falcon.

IF you are watching nothing but big budget trash now its on you not Hollywood cause all kindsa movies are still being made regularly.

Well that not an answer to the question Bruv but I donít think any studio will be going anywhere. In fact I think you go from five to at least seven, possibly eight majors in the next ten - fifteen years.

My point is this. And so is Anthony's if you read between the lines. Hollywood creativity is nonexistent. Everything is agenda driven or a money grab . There are no new movie heros(Stallone, van Damme, snipes etc) , iconic movie series(lethal weapon, Indiana Jones etc) and horror icons( Jason, Freddy etc), and dope black films(the best man, brown sugar etc). There aren't even really any innovative directors anymore. Spike Lee, scorcese, Lucas, Spielberg are old. Who's pushing the boundaries, who is even that next director thats wowing audiences with originality? Hollywood is unoriginal and watered down, shiny colors, agendas and explosions, it's trash, NO SOUL. Sure you can bring up streaming services, but they're in the business of competing with the major studios. Look at Netflix, they're next movie is a Micheal bay blockbuster with deadpool. That tells you thier direction right there. Hollywood Art is dead. It's alive overseas tho

I donít disagree with your thinking so much as I do your understanding. Hollywood has never really been the most creative when it comes to finding and developing talent, as much as they have been at capitalizing and providing a bigger sandbox to play in. Thatís why you have to watch the indie sh*t.

Dope black films like Last Black Man In San Francisco, new directors like Coogler, and Shaka King. Actors like MBJ and Johnathan Majors are next in line for the hot acting roles. The creativity is there, itís just being suppressed by the system. Think about this sh*t as an economic upswing but sooner or later the superhero bubble will burst and they will have to get more conservative with spending. When that happens you get the more creative films because you canít throw a 100mil at it.

The sh*ts not dying though my guy this sh*t happens about every 20-30 years and then thereís a rebirth. See new Hollywood film brats(70ís). The new black exploitation(90ís) even the Hero film now is a change, everyone said the cinema was dying and people donít go to movies anymore, then n*ggas found a way to do billion dollar films. Now is just a time where one thing is king but for every marvel film thereís a small indie being written with heart. They come out and most people are too lazy to go and see them or search them out. More folks go see Madea than Last Black Man or Sorry to Bother you. But the audience will mature and want something different at some point. Weíre just on another transition.
