foxlogoprWhat’s your prediction for the fate of the studio after this fall, once it’s in the full iron grip of Disney?

    I got nothing.

    Ok then. That’s settled.

    The movie studio will quickly die, they have already cut production in half and shuttered the Fox 2000 component. They grabbed it for the television side. They will make terrible decisions on the Searchlight side and close it within three years.

    The Whole Disney+ enterprise will not go as planned. It will debut huge and start having significant churn. It will be 20 percent off their initial subscriber rate at the two year mark. Their movie output isn’t enough to keep eyeballs and nothiing in the past of ABC, Agents of Shield, thouchstone television indicates that they can keep adult eyeballs transfixed.

    Yes, agree. For the life of me I cant understand why anyone would be excited for a Loki or Bucky-whoever-the-fuck/flying wing dude with captain america shield Marvel TV show spinoff. Endgame was so terrible and one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. Probably since Last Jedi. BUT…if they put every 20th Century Fox movie ever made on the Disney+ platform I will succumb and grudgingly subscribe to the thing.

    If they put every fox movie ever made I would happily subscribe. But there is no way that is happening. It will probably get harder to see Peyton Place or an Unmarried Woman. I always put off seeing Damnation Alley, don’t know if the chance will pop up again.

    The Fox library will not be treated with reverence, but as an IP store (like they treat their own film canon),

    The “movies” that make it on to their site are going to be a majority of nontheatrical Disney Channel original filler.

    It’ll be what Hollywood Pictures was for Disney in the 1990’s.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
