Personally, I've stopped going to the movies. I have a 60" plasma with blu-ray and theater sound. I can wait for the vid to come out. The last movie I went to was Return of the King. There were people talking on their cell phones or texting (with their little glowing screens) through the whole film. People don't know how to act in public anymore. Plus, twenty bucks for popcorn and a coke? Adios.

Anyway, given the way tech is going, in ten years anybody will be able to make an epic film with CG actors on their laptop and share it online.
That's what happening now, actually. There's only a few companies making those 20-30 mil budget movies anymore. What you're seeing is a lot more tent poles (ther 100m budget movies) and a slew of low budget stuff. On the independent front, there's a shift from making 5 million dollar movies to making 5 one million dollar movies.

yep and computer animation really cuts back on the cost to make cheap sci/fi fantasy crap movies.

I bought a Sharp 80" at Sams last year. Have a 7.1 surround system built into the ceiling. Looks and sounds better than anything at the local theater. We still go if there is something we just can't wait to watch.

For me, going to the movies is still a good time. I have a quality system at home, however, there is still something for the shared social experience. It's like football, I love watching it on TV too, however, once or twice year, I like to take in a game in person. It's more memorable, and hell, even the crappy, over-priced food seems to taste better at a stadium/theater.

I wonder if the majority of films being made today aren't targeted to the overseas (especially Asian) market, rather than domestic? You always hear the Hollywood numbers guys talking about making their money back overseas.

Haven't been to a movie theater in about 3 or so years. They can keep their 20 dollar popcorn.

Say what you want but I think a huge reason why movies are not doing as well is because home theaters are just so good right now. People would rather pay $150 for a BlueRay movie at Redbox and go home on their couch and eat their $1 microwave popcorn and their .50 cent can of soda.

I'll still go see some movies at the theater, like the Avatar's and what not. But there's no way I'm going to go see some comedy or something and pay $25 (for 1 person).

Honestly it's not the price of movies that has gotten insane, it's the price you pay for popcorn, soda or candy. That's as much if not more then the movie itself.

I don't think movies will implode, I think the big screen is what's going to implode. Forget the "big 6". Let's blame the "big 2" (Harkins and AMC). The cost of their goodies is more then the damn movie itself.

Def a huge part of it. They are catering to a global market these days. There are still plenty of American "busts" that do well overseas. In fact, you're seeing a lot of blockbusters now opening overseas before they do domestically to get good buzz

People will never stop going to the movies because its the experience they crave. Plus, its a low key, still relatively inexpensive night out. You know what a lot of people hate? Staying at home on weekends. It makes them feel lame. Going to the movies is an easy night out that makes you feel like you did something.

Too expensive now, too many other options for entertainment.

I'd rather take a girl out for a nice dinner (given a trip to a movie can cost upwards of $50) and then a movie back at home on my HDTV.

The industry is changing.

I hope this leads to more higher budget TV shows, like Game of Thrones. I will watch all the Iron Man movies, they're all the same really, just keep him dropping 1 liners and blowing stuff up, more than enough entertainment for a weekly hour run show too.

There are only a few movies I just MUST see in the theater. The Nolan Batman series was great, and I saw Avengers and will go see Ironman 3 tonight or tomorrow. Lincoln was just as (if not more) enjoyable at home.

Blu ray and big screen for the win.

This is why concessions are so much because this is how the theatres make profits. So, if you don't buy from the concessions, you aren't really helping the movie theatre make money.

It's a bad, bad, bad, and broke system when the retailers aren't making any money or profit off the actual product they are selling.
Close, there is a Theatre/ Studio split in the movie business... for the first 4 weeks the move is out, the Studio cut is 90/10. Week 5-6, its 75/25... 6 weeks + is 60/40, or something like that. The Theatres try to renogotiate that inital split because that is where the money is from the tickets. Yes, Concessions are a money make but they often ony make up the ****ty split that theatres get form the big Studios.

You will begin to see massive 20+ screen theatre complexes condolidate int he future, especially as studios consider selling and releasing directly to home theatres.

90% of movies that come out suck, they are just garbage with beautiful models in lieu of talented actors and doo-doo story lines. Dark Knight, long convoluted and boring- saw it home, thank god. Twilight- youre a retard if you thought that movie had a redeeming value- watch it at home, thank god. I am seriously afraid of watching another Hollywood movie, they just tend to be terrible.... the new one with Seth Rogan that is supposed to be funny is not indacted as so in the trailer.. it looks horrific. The only movie I have seen lately that I thought was somewhat interesting was the Hunger Games... notice how every one of the 24 were decent looking thin people not relaistic, but overall watchable.

I'm fine with whatever they charge. Just download the movie and watch it at home for free. I know its stealing but i hate hollywood and their politics so i think its funny. In fact I think i will steal something and watch it friday night on my home theater.

Yeah, it may be that as a share of their parent companies they are shrinking. But that's only because movie studios used to be movie studios. Now they've all been swallowed up by huge mass media conglomerates. That may lead to some studio frustration here and there, but 'implosion' is a bit much.

When you put movies out like AFTER EARTH or THE DAY AFTER TOMMOROW etc no wonder you aren't making as much as you want to.
