Movies Today

I look over the ads for Bluray disks and I can’t find anything. The recent movies just don’t appeal. I cannot see paying for any of them. I barely want to spend the time watching them!

I suppose this is because I am too old, far beyond the target movie audience demographic.

But it also comes from years of buying DVDs and then never watching them!

A friend of mine, Tim, told me that Godard once remarked, “Owning a movie means never having to watch it again.” J-L was talking about owning 35- and 16-mm prints, much more costly than a BD version. But the psychology seems to be the same.
