I live 10 minutes from a huge multiplex in Spain, Kinepolis.They have the largest screens in Europe. I love to see openings of certain films. The rest watch them streaming at my home projector. This one is the one I'd like to see there. I saw Dunkirk and was blown away. And the latest 1917. True cinematic experiences in large screens. However, right now with the summer heat going to the largest screen and air conditioning seems an easy way to get infected with this fucking virus.And I'm very sorry for that. Unless we have a vaccine, going to the movies is very risky. Besides this complex has a lot of restaurants, a gym, bowling, etc. Weekends was packed. I'm so sorry for the many employees who make a living there.This is a tragedy!
TV's are getting better, larger and cheaper. Image quality equal or better than most 2k projectors at the theaters. Soon you'll have a cheap wall screen any size 4k. Unless industry invents some sci-fi type of holographic system that can't be at home, theaters will decrease like big malls.
8k? Well, for big Hollywood productions with tons of cash, sure! You get a huge RAW footage to do wonders and VFX. In the end, most of movie theaters have 2k projectors and just one room with a 4k at the large multiplex.
Do you see soon a movie theater with a new 8k (ultraexpensive) projector? And specially now? Are you going to see soon 8k streaming? Have you seen 6k streaming for those guys who bought a flashy 6k TV to show off (what's the use of a 6k TV?). Let's leave it for the Nolans and hot shot directors for big budget movies and for the RAW and master version that stays at the post house. No need to deliver 8k, neither 6k for, let's say, 25 years? Maybe more.
Please consider something that is not trivial; TV's are getting better in quality, larger and cheaper. I've seen recently a 75" OLED 4k TV and it blew my mind.If you turn off those annoying auto image settings and use the Cinema look, as Tom Cruise suggest, the quality is outstanding and better to 2k projectors in most of cinemas.
Play the sound trough a Hi-fi set and you have a real Home Cinema. Now you have top quality series with cinematography as films. 25 years ago, there was a difference TV vs movies. Now, sorry it's over! Besides you have a good series that last many episodes not just 2 hours. And the last detail, this damn virus.
First, stay at home and safe! After the pandemia, we will be eager to watch movies, don't worry. This virus has a low mortality rate but it is very infectious and will collapse hospitals.So, now take your time to write and develop ideas, projects, etc.
Most sci-fi films and books use the science just as a background for classic melodrama. Sci-fi has to make you think about transcending humanity and Earth. 2001 is a good example. I’m waiting years to see a film version of Rendevous with Rama. I remember Morgan Freeman wanted to produce a version with David Fincher. What happened with this?
