    I know they’re still going to be in the theaters so people can see them there if they want, but I do wonder how they are going to make money off some of these movies. and I’m surprised its every movie for 2021 – like In The Heights is coming out June 2021, I was hoping to go to the theater to see it, but maybe i’ll save myself the money and stay home and watch it.

  2. Case says:

    I think now it’s becoming a matter of them losing money if they sit on these films for too long. It’s not ideal — they won’t make as much money on them until a vaccine is released and movie theaters can operate safely — but I think they feel like they just need to pull the trigger on their current slate of films.

    I LOVE going to movie theaters, but since I’m not comfortable visiting one anytime soon, I’m really excited for this. I split HBO Max with a friend and we each pay $7 a month for it. Pretty good deal to have access to new releases!

    • bettyrose says:

      That’s how I feel. I love going to movies, but honestly I wasn’t going very often any more even pre-pandemic. With so much good streaming, it’s a rare movie that I *have* to see in the theater (and where I live literally *one* theater ticket costs more than a month of Netflix).

      Personally, I think this is the way of the future. I’d be sad for indie theaters but there aren’t many left. The same corporations benefit either way. I feel a little bad for teenagers, though. In some places, there isn’t much else for them to do but go to movies.

      • Anne Call says:

        Good news for indie films is that easy quick online accessibility gives them a much wider audience. Before those films would only be seen in NYC, LA, SF and a few other big cities. Unfortunately owning a movie theatre these days may be liking owning a blockbuster video. Going to become obsolete…

      • Ann says:

        I am like that too. I only go to the theater if it’s something I want to see desperately, or if it just won’t be nearly as good without the Big Screen experience. The last movie I saw in a theater was “1917.”

    I miss movie theaters SO MUCH. The last movie I went to was almost a year ago, and I went by myself and ate candy and just had a grand ol’ time. Sigh.

      You need a drive in. The absolute best way to watch a movie or two. Bring your own snacks and drinks or buy them at the snack stand/concession. The one close to me even provides really nice bathrooms. The cost recently went up, it’s now $10/5 per adult and kid. Thursday nights are family night, a carload is $12.(max 5) You get two movies and the family friendly one is always first so adults can take little ones home after it, if they need or want to. They did an insane business this year, even with covid restricting the amount of cars allowed.
      We tried really hard to get the grad ceremonies this year held at the drive-in for social distancing purposes, plus watching your kid get a diploma on a 100′ x 50′ screen. Dr. Bonny Henry’s office said no.

    I wish they would move ‘Dune’ back to its original release date (Christmas). I’m ambivalent about Timothee Chalamet, but after ‘Arrival’ and ‘Blade Runner 2049’ I’m excited to see any sci-fi Denis Villeneuve puts out.

    • Lila says:

      Yes! Arrival was sublime.

    • Thirtynine says:

      Agree with this completely. Timothy Chalamet doesn’t interest me, but Arrival and Bladerunner were heartbreaking, devastating films. And I’ve always loved winter weddings.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    I thought Aubrey Plaza was great in Happiest Season! Never really liked her before or saw her in much.

  6. StellainNH says:

    Judy Dench is a treasure. I love the story of her meeting her second love.

  7. TeamMeg says:

    I don’t have an antenna or cable service; I watch TV through a Roku box that streams WIFI through my 30″ widescreen TV monitor. Love it, and save a lot of money this way—subscribing/unsubscribing to channels month to month. But…right now Roku only supports the old HBO platform, not Max. Regular HBO was great for The Undoing, My Brilliant Friend and other shows/movies, but I want to see Dune!! Hopefully Roku will start supporting HBO Max by the time Dune drops.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      We bought Roku when it first came out, and between that and Netflix way back then (they were still mailing dvds) we cut cable and landlines. I can’t believe how long it’s been! We add on and drop channels whenever. Currently, we’re enjoying HBO Max through AT&T because of a renewal. We usually stream it through Amazon but it’s amazing how better the picture is without that interface. Netflix, Amazon Prime and premium channels, Hulu and YouTube premium (not the tv). I love it lol and I don’t ever wanna be without my Roku and Chromecast.

  8. Stacy Dresden says:

    Cool I’m looking forward to Dune. Chet Haze is such an embarrassment.

  9. deezee says:

    I find this really annoying as all these movies still go to the theatre in literally every other country. It’s probably not going to be safe to gather for 2021 either which means I and most everyone else that is a consumer of pop culture, will have to wait at least a few months to see this movies once they go to a streaming service. OR illegally download and watch them. This method I really don’t like as I don’t like pirating.

  10. Leah says:

    Guess I have to subscribe to HBO max for at least a little while. They got rid of their 7 day trial because I think they knew that a lot of people had the same idea just to subscribe for a short while to see Wonder Woman 1984 for free. At least that was the idea I had, lol.

    Hope that the new Dune is better than the David Lynch version which was only kind of okay in extended version form.

  11. Whatnow says:

    If you subscribe to HBO MAX through AMAZON PRIME they still have one week free trial as of earlier today

  12. Bendy Windy says:

    I used to go to the movies 2-3 times a week. For the past several years, it’s been more like 2-4 times/year. I love this release to streaming thing we’ve got going.

    Honestly, even the movies that don’t go to a subscription channel, but are just like $20 to rent…great. I can watch from home. I don’t need a sitter. I’ve saved tons of money. And no one is on their cell phone or getting up 80 times and walking in front of me.

    I’m happy to pay $20 for that. It’s cheaper than movie tickets for two.
