Digital, digital, digital.
At first I also thought things would go "back to normal".
But do things EVER go back to "normal" after such devastating worldwide events like this COVID-pandemic and 911 before that?
I think NOT.
I agree with the article in that things have been changing for a while now toward Digital media and Streaming.
Eventually, DVDs, BDs, Vinyl, and all physical media will give way to mostly Digital media. And it's going to be the same way with commercial movie theaters.
We've also seen most new movies and TV series being shot using all Digital cameras, except Christopher Nolan, who still clings on to his Analog films for dear life.
Do I care if commercial theaters die out? Not at all.
Most of us here have always thought that the sound quality of our home theaters best the commercial theaters, especially when it comes to Atmos and DTSX movies.
What am I missing from commercial theaters? The cold virus, flu virus, other viruses and bacterias, guns, bombs, gas, terrorism, and annoying people who have no respect for the rest of us trying to watch our movies.
So I am 100% for movies going directly to streaming services so I can enjoy safely with my family in the comfort of our awesome home theater.
But just don't let directors make movies like Wonder Woman 1984 because that was an excruciating experience. At least we didn't have to RISK COVID-19, the flu, the cold, other infectious diseases, guns, bombs, terrorism, and annoying people.
