The Future of Cinema

The Future of Cinema

Ever wonder how the film industry will make a transition in the next 10 years? To be honest we still don't know. The evolution of movies is incredible now, it started from them black and white silent joints to damn digital and IMAX screenings, maybe its just me but when you go to see a movie now in IMAX it's like full HD compared to a regular screening that looks like 720 resolution, I get a better picture watching Blu-rays than a regular 2D picture, of course it matters what TV you have also but for example, watch a movie with amazing visuals such as Mad Max Fury Road, the sand storm chase scene alone is one of the greatest chase sequences in film, you can watch that on a 1080p 120/240hz TV and become stunned, but that's not all of it, now that 4K is the new thing, companies are rolling out 4k Blu-ray discs, and the picture looks 100x better, the HDR resolution is making its way to the top.

A director's vision is one of the key elements to filmmaking, a lot of people "hate" Michael Bay for his style of directing but why?, because it's nothing but explosions?, that's bullshit, people need to jump off the “I Hate Michael Bay” shade tree train, my only theory to people disliking him as a filmmaker is because of his version of the Transformers franchise, like come on, I don't really know shit about Transformers except the fact it's a bunch of robots fighting each other, I don't care for a story when it comes to those movies, I just don't, yeah it can get silly through the running time and the movies are long as hell but who really cares? Revenge of the Fallen is my favorite movie out the franchise and it looks excellent, especially in Blu-ray format. If you take away the Transformers franchise from Michael Bay then you would realize that he has some legit movies on his resume, his first movie was Bad Boys starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, the movie franchise that set off everything for him, yes he had some duds like Pearl Harbor but he has more hits than misses, when it comes to action Michael Bay is one of the best to do it like it or not, and if you don't believe it, watch Bad Boys 2.

The future of movies is going to get better but it's going to be a process, remember going to the movies and just ordering popcorn, candy, nachos and a drink? Now you get food such as pizza, chicken wings, loaded fries, steak and a burger, the theater experience nowadays makes you feel at home more than you are at home in itself. Theaters are starting to have a luxury experience now they're bringing out reclining seats for the general public, just think, you can order some wings and fries and go straight to the seat and adjust it the way you want while waiting for your food to be brought out, crazy. There's more than just ordering food though, your local theater might have a bar too, yes like an actual drinking bar, it sounds weird but these are starting to sound like hotels or your typical "bar n grill" than a movie theater, you can literally order a shot of Hennessy and drink it before or after you see a movie, then just chill out at the bar. I don't really know what's next coming to theaters but I wouldn't be surprised if these companies start rolling out beds you can lay in while watching your next blockbuster.
