Old Meets New

Hmmm… I don’t know if classic movies and web-streaming are a good combo. Or even a viable one. Newer films, i.e. those with less concerns about continuity, those made in the “digital age”, those with choppier styles, seem well-suited to the often-choppiness and wateryness of web streaming, but classic movies? If any group of films is meant to be seen in a theater and seen start to finish, uninterrupted, it’s the classics. I’ll always support any venue for promoting these films, it just seems a very odd combo to me. Plus, on the web you want content on demand. You don’t get online to join a program already in progress, you want to click on a button and see the film from start to finish. That’s how the Internet works, Ted. You gotta adapt.
