Great googly moogly, it’s time for a brand-new series! My, how the time flies . . . dragging us along, one moment moving inexorably to another . . . drawing us ever-nearer to the moment of our own death. What’s got me so cheery? Why, it’s our new series “Now Streaming to a Room Near You” and this week’s entry “Swan Song”! We’re doing a series entirely on movies that have recently been released only on streaming services or simultaneously in theaters AND streaming services. Now we have even less reason to leave the house! …. Yay? So we thought we’d start with something light-hearted and frothy: a movie about facing our own mortality, the morality and ethics of certain medical treatments, the nature of identity and humanity, and the conflict of agency vs. protecting your loved ones from tragedy. You know, a popcorn movie! We’ve got quite a cast here, and quite a conversation so give a listen!
Poll question: how do you change your habits when watching a first run movie at home from when you watch a first run movie in the theater? Lights off or on? Bathroom breaks or no? Are you looking forward to going back to theaters or are you good?
