    If movies were better and actually tailored towards what audiences what, instead of telling them what they want or actively giving them what they do not want, would movies be able to stave off the massive loss of interest they're experiencing?

      No, because moronic children want their dopamine hit asap
      I'm convinced you just have to get rid of the internet entirely if you want movies and tv to become profitable again, or at least make the web text-only

        i think realistically what you need is to find a way for movies to be watched by people as an event online
        i've been saying this for a while, but streaming companies completely miss out on this despite being online
        sure, an excellent movie is one you can watch on your own
        but most slup or even decent fun movies are the type of stuff you want to watch with friends and family
        90% of the stuff i watch i do either in real life with my gf or through discord with my friends streaming it for the rest
        >tl;dr
        zoomers are social online if not irl so the industry should adapt and let them watch movies communally

          I'm 34 and I grew up going to the cinema virtually every week and watching shows all the time and I loved it. Nowadays I barely even pirate stuff. It's not a demographic shift it's a quality shift. Everything modern is pure garbage and even fabricated hype is no longer working out to get people to consume.
          Even if I don't understand the fuss about streamers I understand why zoomers would rather stick to watching content that they found keeps them entertained and is easily accessible 24/7 rather than pay out the ass to watch whatever hollywood decided to greenlit which will be more likely than not shit and must be done withing a specific timeslot exclusively dedicated to it.

          Twitch has a thing that allows a streamer to play any content from Amazon to the viewers and those that are subbed can watch or something like that. People don't tune in because of the movie but because of the streamer and/or the community.

          those tv show marathons on twitch (pokemon, bob ross, that seinfeld thing etc) were pretty popular but i haven't heard about one in a while. probably hard for them to find ways of monetising it

        That's why you hook your audience within the first five minutes. None of this slow shit. Give the viewer a reason to watch.

    I've been pointing this out forever: people under 25 rarely go to movies. All the posturing about "strong female heroes" for little girls to look up to is out of touch boomers and millennial women thinking that the current generation is like them. Some streamer playing minecraft has more influence on young girls than Rey Skywalker or Marvle. Their lack of adapting and thinking 900 million box offices were going to last forever is what will doom them. Entire studios are just going to go bankrupt, and everything will be owned by Netflix, Amazon, Google, and a the other tech firms.

    Fricking grim if you ask me. Sitting and watching a movie in a theater will be seen as "weird" in as little as 10 years or osmething just for old people.

    Criterion needs to hurry their asses up, as their audience is literally going to DIE within a few decades, and their business model won't even be profitable anymore.

    Gen Z is watching anime. People always have and always will enjoy scripted stories. On a related note, manga is doing great, too. Comics will never die on the grounds that people just aren't interested in the medium anymore, either.

    This is a problem with the woke entertainment industry that ultimately cares more about their club than their customers. It's a big club, and we're not in it? Good, because being in that club must be fricking embarrassing in 2024.

      >Gen Z is watching anime.
      they watch anime because it's free and short
      fi anime stopped being 20 minute harem slop and became 2-3h endeavours they wouldn't give a shit about it
      but yeah, the ease of access is what guarantees the popularity of manga and anime, all i need to do to watch any anime i want is go to google, type in
      >[name] watch free hd
      and i'll get it
      anything more complicated than that does not appeal to a zoomer, most of them are watching from phones and ipads

        The most popular anime have a bajillion episodes and are non-episodic.

        Cope. This isn't a problem with the customers, the genres (unless you consider wokehit a genre, which is valid), or the mediums. This is a problem with crappy content from arrogant media companies that have become hostile towards their customers, especially their main customers as the consistent primary consumers of media: normal heterosexual men who have male interests and like things that men like.

          are you a fricking moron? the claim was never that they're episodic, only that the length of the episodes makes them easy to digest
          you can watch an anime episode with a meal, or when you're on the bus, or even when you go to take a really big shit
          you aren't gonna do that with some 1h10m hbo episode
          >This isn't a problem with the customers
          well, considering there's more people that watched gintama or one piece than twin peaks or carnivale, i'd say it's definitely a problem with the customers, and that problem is called shit taste
          after all, the bad content only started recently, in the last 10 years or so, and the best anime that everyone still watches are about as old as the golden age of television
          so it's both
          anime is a lot easier to watch both due to its length and availability, and it's also a lot easier to view, period, because it's made for a very low level of engagement
          but maybe more important to mention is the fact that most of the people b***hing about woke media aren't watching anime, they're sitting in their chairs slurping diet cokes and eating hamburgers watching other fat bald middle-aged old men whine about star wars going woke or whatever

        Its moronic because youtube is infinitely more relevant than television or film, but there's no official place for it. Not even talking about meme streamers; there's shitloads of youtube content out there that's just outright better than most tv content. We're in an age where woodworking youtubers have over 2 million subscribers.

          You're right there's a lot of good stuff, but that doesn't mean there'd be any good discussion. At best you'd just get some people spamming links while ignoring each other which would then get drowned out by a couple of autists posting gossip/drama crap.

    I’m back to playing vidya and watching old movies. I got into watching streamers for a bit, but I got very attached to one in particular and was donating $1000+ to her a month. It was getting to be a problem and I didn’t seem to be able to control myself and simply enjoy her content without donating so much. So I unsubscribed from her Twitch and YouTube channels and left her Discord. I haven’t watched any streamers since.

    Basically any weekend between 1931-2001 you could go to the theater and see a hit movie that was genuinely good. The theater was clean and unless the movie was shit and bored the audience everyone was largely respectful and didn't talk or interrupt the film. The only food was popcorn and maybe some candy, you weren't being assaulted with the greasy stink of hotdogs and pizzas and cheese. Very few people stank. Segregation and a positive society meant there was little fear of violence in the theater.

    Even if movies were good, the audiences today are fricking pigs that deserve to be shot in the head. Even if the audiences were good, movies today are fricking trash. Theaters are already dead.

    Movies are simply too expensive now. At one point a movie ticket was 7 bucks and video rentals were 1-2 bucks, now a movie ticket is almost 20 bucks and digital rentals are 4-5 bucks or a 30 dollar subscription to some service that doesn't even have any movies in its catalog.

    To watch a stream or a youtube video you literally just pop in a url or click a bookmark or whatever. To watch a movie you have to sort through 15 different streaming services (all with a significant fee). The barrier of entry is very low, yes, but it needs to be practically nothing if they want to compete.

    I'm in my 30s and watch almost no new movies or TV because it's all fricking garbage. Even if something decent somehow does get squeezed out of the streaming shithole, it'll be 8 episodes long, end on a cliffhanger and then get cancelled so what's the fricking point of watching it at all. Meanwhile I can hop on youtube and watch a comfy video of someone crafting a diorama or building a terrarium or something like that.
