    4) The Blob

    I like cigars, but I haven't smoked one in over 15 years and only a few times before that. I never wanted to get into the habit of smoking anything that would affect my health. If I did smoke...

    Eh, we probably should just call it a day. It seems we're just spinning our wheels at this point. :)

    If they were given a big enough movie contract, of course they would take it over TV. Again, more money for less effort.
  6. Doing both is okay and has been the case forever....

    Doing both is okay and has been the case forever. But if they only had one choice between the two, they would take a lead role in a film over anything else due to the higher salary for less effort.

    Huh? I said exactly the opposite of what you just posted. :confused:

    Now that I can go along with.

    The three established actors you named are neither fading movie or TV stars, though, while the other one is, as you stated, an up-and-comer. Therefore, I stand by my statement.
  10. Where do top movie stars go when they start to...

    Where do top movie stars go when they start to lose their clout at the box office? TV.

    Where do top TV stars go when they start to lose their clout with their audiences? Community theater? :D

    If GoT's final season consisted of 2-3 hours, then you would be right. But it averaged 88 million for each of their six episodes* (based on that same article you just posted), which translates to...

    And why is that? Because there is a far bigger return with a 2-3 hour movie than 2-3 hours of anything on TV or streamed. That is my argument in a nutshell.

    Again, this is not about quality....

    ... and Asa Ezaak was modeled after my favorite science fiction writer:

    Your top movie stars (Dwayne Johnson is not the only one, BTW - #13 for 2020, Will Smith, made 35 million) destroy the top stars of television or streaming on an hourly basis.

    Jessica Chastain...

    Okay, I have to jump in one more time: Dwayne Johnson can get $500,000 for 2-4 minutes of one of his films. :D

    Golden Age sidekick Doiby Dickles was modeled after character actor Edward Brophy.

    Yeah, people forget legacy was very much alive and well before the DCU ever existed.

    Yes! :D

    In all seriousness, I like the saving part more.

    Look, there's a reason why movie actors make a lot more money than TV actors on an hourly rate - it's just a bigger deal.

    Since you probably still won't agree, I'll bow out now. :)
  21. But it is the same as it was then, because you...

    But it is the same as it was then, because you keep forgetting that the hourly rate for a film's budget dwarfs a streaming one. That's just a fact. As I pointed out before, a program on a streaming...

    I'm not saying it's bad or doesn't have value, but it's still the minors in comparison to the films.

    In the late '60s, there was a show called Land of the Giants (I'm old enough to recall watching...

    When a streamed show costs 500 million to make for a ten-episode season, then TV budgets will be comparable to 100 million dollar films. :)
  24. Each episode averaged 38 minutes, which...

    Each episode averaged 38 minutes, which translates to a budget about 100 million for the 8-episode season of 300 minutes. A big-budget film, OTOH, will be no longer than 180 minutes, but the budget...

    15 million for an hour-long episode is not the same as a 2-3 hour-long big-budget film.
