Does anyone watch films anymore?

Posted on July 22, 2022


I just had this thought, this morning. Over here, there is a lot of discussion around cinema, but so many reviews – unless they are of big films – barely get comments about the film in question. Is it because the particular set of commenters that frequent the blog now do not watch films? Or do they watch films and do not want to comment? (Maybe along with reading, writing is vanishing, too.) Or do they prefer to comment on, say, Twitter, where they may get a larger audience? Or do they prefer to watch series?

As we are talking about change, I want to mention this: Earlier, even the smaller/bad films used to get comments from people who actually saw them! Over the two-odd decades this blog has existed, that it itself a major change.
