Yeah, that's a pretty gross statement to make. He knows exactly the kind of insinuation he's making with that comment and it's complete garbage.

As an avid film goer for the past decade +, it's definitely been difficult to generate excitement for movies recently, even before the narrative started to really impact film releases a few months ago. In 2019, there were like what, maybe 3 movies that were somewhat interesting, and the quarantine put the past 20 years of movies into perspective such that I don't think there's a viable top 10 list of movies that one could recommend as needing to watch today. When you think about it, most of these releases are just montages of people farting on screen and yelling cut every 30 seconds in between their latte breaks. Unless, a movie really does something innovative it's hard to justify the gross exaggeration of the value of the product of this industry. People still qualify politics as a legitimate structure of society, and show vocal outrage over political leaders, and yet they are completely enamored with the idea of placing so much value on cheap entertainment like mainstream movies and music, and still portray compete surprise by the climate of everything. It's actually surprising that for such a loved franchise property, it's relatively been under the radar that Marvel is an affiliate of the Trump organization, and in their last movie Captain America is made to look like Joe Biden. Its a parody right, the same people that will be in the theater losing it over a guy in a goofy costume making a goofy face in front of unicorns, will then be twiddling their thumbs on twitter at the president. The consumer of the last 20 + years (and likely leading far back to the early 1900s) with regard to these entertainment avenues could be best described as something like a sloppy drunk customer at a bar/club ordering drinks nonstop to the point of unconsciousness. A period such as the one we're experiencing in right now, may sober up consumers, may change their affinity for the type of entertainment they're willing to invest in. Hopefully, the result is that the output of movies becomes much more leaner and innovative. If theaters focus on releasing 2 quality movies in a month period, it likely would create more thought provoking impressions in the consciousness of culture, and would translate to real prestige, diminished but actual appropriate to the reality, for those who advocate for the cinema experience. It would probably be less money for the industry, but a much more socially responsible contribution. Now let's see how the Tenet movie swings. It could very well be that they premiere it at home, and that could be the optimum resolution in their situation. With a highly anticipated film where there's a reference for the director's likelihood of turning an idea into a visual thrill, it could result in a strong impact in a different way for people to experience it at the same time on an evening from the comfort of their home.

i understand the no cough/sneeze policy in theory, but it’s unreasonable and impossible to enforce. it’s allergy season. should people with seasonal allergies fuck off or something? how is someone who isn’t covid-19 positive going to be “punished” for sneezing inside a movie theater?

Would the daily COVID screening for employees be a check for temperature and symptoms or would they stick the cotton swab up their nose?

If it's the latter, I would quit honestly.
