Hoboken Movie Lineup – 11.17.2017

How long can Hollywood last {Big screen at least?}

The combination of recent “scandals,” along with the proliferation of internet-based entertainment makes me wonder how long can Hollywood last?

I mean back in the day – the “silver screen” (i.e., brick and mortar cinema houses) was the shit. Nothing at home compared (i.e., shoddy tube televisions).

Today, you have massive 4k screens all connected to millions of entertainment options online. That plus very good audio options to complete the so-called “experience” at home.

Sooner or later – I can imagine that “movies” as you now know them will change dramatically.

Either the COST will come down tremendously. Or they will have to up the “experience” tenfold. You know, like epic nine-hour sagas along with surround video, etc. If neither happens – then we should see a dramatic reduction in the number of “theaters” out there in the next 5-10 years. That’s my prediction at least.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening this weekend at area theaters is what appears to be a ridiculously stupid movie called Cook Off.

“Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot. COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.”

Another attempt to make people look stupid. Or at least that’s their opinion of the rest of the world. Who knows.

One commenter put it best: “It’s like a Christopher Guest film, but without all the funny parts.”
