Also, Netflix has changed its model completely and became a service that is only interested in streaming TV shows It creates. That’s OK, I get it. But what do people now do for movies? Netflix killed Blockbuster because it could supposedly provide movies in a better way. And now that it mostly dumped the movie business, where do people get movies to watch? Legally, I mean.
I’m sure this was all discussed elsewhere many times and I’m late to the party, as always. But even I, a person who is not a huge movie fan, to put it mildly, am noticing that something isn’t working here.
I also don’t get how Netflix’s model works. Where do they get money to film all these TV shows? From people’s $7.99 per month subscription? And that’s enough?
P.S. A propos TV shows, we are finishing the second season of Ozark, a show that needs to be shown instead of Trump’s election videos. And that’s not only because the portrayal of Mexicans but because of the really offensive and deeply biased portrayal of rural Missouri. And by the way, God, TV shows really suck at portraying white poverty. Would it have been so hard for the casting folks, the makeup and hair people, and the costume workers to go hang out at a trailer park for a couple of hours to see what people actually wear and look like?
