It’s Not the Screen Size

If there’s an overriding theme at tonight’s Oscars, it’s how many times actors take the stage and make a plea for people to actually go to the theater to watch a film. Instead of realizing the shift of content to alternative and often smaller screens and the possibilities to market and screen film content, speakers and presenters choose patronize viewers at home with complaints about lighter box office earnings.

By the way, I’m watching the Academy Awards on the other big screen, Plasma. It makes it difficult to listen to the pleas of the actors when I have to admit, home theater does a good job of replicating the “movie experience” in every aspect except the people talking behind you throughout the film.
