Streaming Movies Vanish from Pop Culture Like Tears in the Rain

Last week I watched Martin Scorsese’s Criterion Blu-ray. Irish (2019), I was shocked when the Netflix logo appeared.

I forgot Irish This is a Netflix movie and streaming feature funded, produced and distributed by streaming outlets.

What shocked me was the fact that I never saw the Netflix logo except when I signed up for Netflix. Irish (I believe this is a masterpiece), I have never seen a Netflix movie, or a Hulu, Amazon, or Disney+ movie.

The streamers have been making feature films of their own for the better part of the last decade, so I think we’ve had plenty of time to come to a conclusion. So, despite big stars, big directors, big budgets, and tons of hype, streaming comes to this conclusion:movies have failed stick. Stick means it takes place in a particular movie. They enter the public consciousness. They are remembered, cherished, passed down and become part of our pop culture norms.

obsession It doesn’t necessarily mean honor. Forty years ago, in 1983, the titles that somehow stuck with me were: 10 to Midnight, Big Chill, Blue Thunder, A Christmas Story, Dead Zone, Easy Money, Eddie and the Cruiser, Flashdance, King of Comedy, Mr. Mom, National Lampoon’s Vacation, The Outsiders, Right Stuff, Risky Business, Scarface, Jedi Return, Tender Mercies, Terms of Love, Exchange, Valley Girl, Wargames…

You may want to add or subtract from these titles, but my point is that, 40 years later, they are still remembered and still selling. These titles influenced him over the course of his 40 years. IrishI can’t think of a stream with more enduring power than these middle-aged titles.

40 years from now, will anyone remember 2021? coda or dog power, both won Oscars? Why don’t you think about them once more?

How about that Rome (2018), air (2023), marriage story (2019), Glass Onion: Knives Out Mystery (2022), Da 5 Bloods (2020), 1922 (2017), Gerald’s game (2017), Chicago 7 trial (2020), army of the dead (2021), extraction (2020)“Pinocchio” by Guillermo del Toro (2022), blonde (2022), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020), good nurse (2022), red notification (2021), don’t look up (2021), Adam Project (2022), bird box (2018), or gray man (2022)?

I’ve seen most of those movies, and even enjoyed some of them, but others Irishthere isn’t a single streaming movie that sticks in your mind that you’ll want to add to your home video collection or watch again.

Clearly, the problem isn’t based on a lack of notable actors, writers, and directors. The big names in the film industry brought us those films. It’s not that I hold a grudge against the new film. Although that number dwindles each year, there are plenty of new theatrical releases I bought on Blu-ray.joker, once upon a time Time in Hollywood, Ford vs Ferrari, Nobody, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Zombieland 2, Emily the Criminal,Such.

So what is it?

I think it all boils down to this. They’re all algorithmically built TV movies, and TV movies are TV movies, no matter how star power they are. Irishlike Steven Spielberg duel (1971) is an exception. It’s a rare TV movie that’s very well made. stick.

but duel It didn’t cost $200 million in 1971. In fact, 2023 cost him the equivalent of $3.4 million.

So why is this important?

ok, movie stick Please reach out to us in any way. They are the implicit that we all feel, wanting to understand what it means to be human, why we are here, where we are going, and what is important in between. supports and meets the needs ofanything else content, like watching a game show to pass the time… there’s nothing wrong with that.not all need to be literature. But that’s why I canceled my streaming subscription. Dairy Queen is great, but not every day.

That much money and talent…you might think you’re getting something other than empty, forgettable calories.
