All right ramblers, let's get rambling
I had a chance to see this up in Seattle a few months ago and am going to go see it again for sure. I don't even like racing but it's an interesting character study and for sure one of the best sports movies I've seen.
Found the remake soft and spineless. Save your money and go rent the original.
This is an attempt by Netflix to segregate its risks. As a streaming company, they are forced into expensive licensing agreements with the big content groups, there is no first sale doctrine for streams.
As a disk rental service they are in the same boat as Redbox, not legally required to work with the big guys as they can always buy up their discs from resellers rather than directly from the source. However the more they undercut the big guys, the more those guys want to turn the screws in regards to the steam licenses.
Two separate entities means less liability. If Qwikster pisses off Sony by not paying the dane geld, it's less likely that Netflix will have to pay for them. Ditto, if Netflix pisses off Disney and doesn't agree to a price increase next time the license renewal hits, Qwikster is in a less compromised spot.
It's an unfortunate result of the fact that the past few years have seen big content being more and more aggressive with their bullying than they were. They are starting to realize that the modern world requires adaptation to survive and are desperately attempting to put the genie back in the bottle.
Glad to see this up. Good luck!
What happened to Ditch? I thought he was supposed to be the savior of KUFO when Larry Wilson brought him in.
Wasn't this same plan proposed a few years ago but voted down because of the cost? It was around the same time Montreal and Colorado launched similar programs and lost millions of dollars. How could there be more funding available now considering how strapped the city is for public transportation funding already?
stoked this is coming to the Clinton even if it is 4 hours long
I feel bad for the Broadway but guess I could have seen it coming as it was pretty empty the past few times I was there. It seems like most people didn't even know about it which is too bad because it was a good space! Good choice in giving the Hollywood the equipment. Too bad Dan is one of the biggest d**ks in this town.
