Exactly. I don't get the idea of these long takes, especially the one from the article, as if they'd magically change a rather boring monologue into Oscar material. They could've done the exact thing with a fraction of the complexity by stitching together shots digitally or they could've turned this shot into something much better by doing so.
I'd rather see something as David Fincher did in Fight Club or Panic Room, a hybrid of real and digital, where the camera moves at the speed of thoughts.
Spineless, one could say. But since he probably never gave a "fcuk" about the country Taiwan or the city Hong Kong or whatever else China has it's dirty hands on anyways it's no big deal he apologizes...
Oh wow. So now people are being attacked for some very harmless, very neutral tweets? A bit more neutrality and you couldn't even tell if she said anything at all...
"Hollywood" wants us to go into the theatres, we follow the order! Sir, yes, sir!
That's nonsense. We've got video games for half of a century and from that, one decade of very high quality games now and it didn't kill off all the other forms of entertainment. Following your logic, sports events, concerts and things like that must also be dying as those and others are also passive forms of entertainment. I rather believe films in theaters and television are things of the past. Joker was the last movie I watched in the theatre and even though I really liked it, it was nothing I couldn't have enjoyed at home. But looking at my consumption of content, I overwhelmingly watch short form stuff on YouTube, a bit on Instagram, then mostly serials and films on Netflix or prime. What actually died completely in my and quite everyone else's lives is regular television and I wouldn't care less if cinema theatres disappeared as well.
The superhero genre is exhausted. For me. If the rest likes to eat this crap, please, have it.
