It is another special episode this week and we're calling it, The Breakdown of the Future Success of Movies. The movie industry took a huge blow in 2020 with the pandemic, and there is hope that they can start recovering once the vaccines have significant rollout. Whenever in history there has been a significant shake-up to society like a global war or a pandemic, parts of our life are changed forever as we need to adapt and innovate.
The movie industry can't just return to how things were done if they hope to succeed and stay healthy in the future. This week we offer up some strategies of we believe studios and streaming services need to do in order to thrive for decades to come. We will discuss such things like the need to create more filmmaker driven original stories like Knives Out or to make prestige picture far more accessible during awards season to the average movie fan. We've been talking and writing about movies for almost a decade, so we use some of that experience and insight to really look at the state of movies and what needs to change.
As always, we had a great time talking movies, and we really hope you love it too. If you do, then the best way you can show your support is sharing us on social media, so more listeners can find us.
