    Some of the best films I've seen this year have been Netflix Originals.

    Netflix needs to keep up with that stuff, and do some bigger shows. Stuff like Stranger Things and Altered Carbons. Let David Lynch do whatever the hell he wants.

    Picard went to Amazon and now CW is not continuing their old deal with Netflix and shopping their new shows around. That's what I mean though as time goes along they're going to get less and less non original content which will hurt them eventually.

    Picard went to Amazon because Netflix got burned on Discovery. They practically paid for the first season and it didn't do well. Netflix low balled CBS on the second season and they had to eat most of the cost that go around.

    Does that mean Discovery will pop up on Netflix at some point in the US?

    Doubt it. There will be no reason for CBS All Access to exist if Discovery was on US Netflix.

    I think it more likely that someone like Amazon or Disney will eventually buy CBS out. That's not to say such a buy out is imminent, or will ever even happen, but as long as CBS is independent, they're not handing their most important properties over to someone else's streaming service. CBS would by far rather build their own streaming services for the same reasons that Disney does: control over access to their consumers, and the data that results form that access.

    That's just completely insensitive and not at all relative to that specific worldwide pandemic, the bottom line is people are poor, and there is NO good reason for companies to have all these billions when they could be used to help humanity. I would rather see lower budget films or no films at all if it meant these greedy fucks were actually helping their fellow men. I guess they are in their own way, but their fellow men are their fellow devils

    Your answer would be what?

    Sterilize those who seem to lack sufficient ability to connect actions with consequences? How do we assess that?

    That's before we even talk about teenagers whose only sex-education is a vague "don't do that" (which has dubious hopes against the power of what glands do in puberty).

    That's also before we talk about cultures that entitle men to rape children (and that's not just in "the primitive" societies). It's probably happening in your church.

    So,
    Why cant people stop having kids they can't feed?
    ...because it ain't that simple.

    I feel that the current era in movies will end with the dissolving of Disney. Eventually they will get to big.

    Possibly. I don't see that happening anytime soon. Under current campaign finance structure, corporations have an advantage in any debate over Monopoly.

    I see the big tech companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook being dissolved before Disney. Disney is staying in its lane with all the companies it's buying up.
