Only the Best Will Thrive on the Theater, Home Screen

“I'm most scared of unfulfilled potential.” – Mae, “The Circle,” 1978 Films, 2017
Everyone is doing their darndest to make sure that Covid stays in 2020.
Children are back in school (50 percent of the time) and the goal this fall will be full time … probably.
Susan, our avid theater-attending friend, hit her local movie house masked, safely distanced with saran wrapped, saltier than usual (and more expensive) popcorn and said she’ll be trying to go back again when able.
In the interim, she’ll be moviestaying, not moviegoing.
My wife is sorta interested in going to the movies again, but she wants to get through all of her new Netflix, Disney +, Prime TV, Apple TV + got to watch stuff first.
We’re toying with the idea of adding Discovery’s HBO max for a while this fall to catch Matrix 4 and Dune. After that, we’ll see.
Of course, we’ve also got a lot of content from pre-2019 to catch up on at our free services – IMDb TV, Tubi.
We’d be slightly less irritated with their pathetic ads if the services and ad folks would pay closer attention to all our personal information and create/offer stuff we’re even mildly interested in.
But right after that, we’re ready to hit the theaters because they were crushed during Covid.
