Bringing the Movie House Home

 I hear patience is a virtue.  But I ain’t never been able to wait to see if that’s true.” – Jim Beckworth, “The Harder They Fall,” Netflix, 2021

We really like movies.

In fact, we watched two pretty decent movies last weekend.

Clicked through our streaming services, found a couple on our “gotta catch this” list and watched them.

It’s been that way for several years … even before the pandemic. 

There are films from here and abroad with good plots, good scripts, good acting, good editing/post work.

The award folks have consistently looked down their noses at such projects – unless they’re getting paid to be in them – but to each their own.

It takes a really great film to get us out of the house and into a theater seat.

D2C Entertainment is Packed with Uncertain Growth

“You cannot go around saying to people that there's 100% chance that they're going to die. You know? It's just nuts.” – President Orlean, “Don’t Look Up,” Netflix, 2021

Since the first of the year, and increasingly throughout the summer, analysts have been wringing their hands about the problem with churn … subscribers who cancel or don't renew a streaming service subscription.

 

Departed – The biggest challenge for all streaming services is to retain subscribers as long as possible because the longer the individual/household sticks around the more profitable they are to the streaming service.  Winning them back can be done, but at a cost.  

The Netflix subscription dip early this year was relatively minor – 220K out of 220M – not good, but then they did drop an entire country’s subscribers and they guessed they would add 2.5M.

Suddenly, the viability of the entire streaming industry was in question and the shares of every entertainment firm cratered.
