    It’s a miracle! He can walk without support again. Never saw that coming. 5-29 years. Will be interesting to see what the sentence is and where he serves it. Not to mention he faces more charges elsewhere. A little bummed that he was exonerated on some charges but the guilty verdict was very satisfying.

  2. Ben Kabak says:

    He got railroaded. You can’t prosecute regrets.

    I don’t like imdb’s new format. Before it seemed like the place to go to get information. Now it seems like they’re trying to sell me something. Are companies paying to have their show or movie more prominently featured? Joker came out in October and yet it’s always the first thing I see when the page opens. I don’t need clip art but it would be nice if they had a small list of what’s opening for the weekend. Instead, let’s see what 12 year old TV show or 20 yr old movie streaming on Amazon or imdb! We’ll put schedules up for anyone who’ll pay us but be sure to leave out Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix.

"Netflix, the great disrupter whose algorithms and direct-to-consumer platform have forced powerful media incumbents to rethink their economic models, now seems to need a big strategy change itself. It got me thinking about the simple idea that my film and TV production company Blumhouse is built on: If you give artists a lot of creative freedom and a little money upfront but a big stake in the movie’s or TV show’s commercial success, more often than not the result will be both commercial (the filmmakers are incentivized to make films that will resonate with audiences) and artistically interesting (creative freedom!). This approach has yielded movies as varied as Get Out (made for $4.5 million, with worldwide box office receipts of more than $250 million), Whiplash (made for $3.3 million, winner of three Academy Awards), The Invisible Man (made for $7 million, earned more than $140 million) and Paranormal Activity (made for $15,000, grossed more than $190 million).From the beginning, the most important strategy I used to persuade artists to work with me was to make radically transparent deals: We usually paid the artists (“participants” in Hollywood lingo) the absolute minimum allowable by union contracts upfront, with the promise of healthy bonuses based on actual box office results—instead of the opaque 'percentage points' that artists are usually offered. Anyone can see box office results immediately, so creators don’t quarrel with the payouts. In fact, when it comes time for an artist to collect a bonus based on box office receipts, I email a video clip of myself dropping the check off at FedEx to the recipient."
