Bubble Wrap

I came across this MIT Convergence Culture Consortium blog entry on Bubble this morning, and because of my own interest in the film and its "day and date" release, wanted to hang on to the link. It's clear from Alec Austin's entry and the subsequent comments that I liked the film quite a bit more than they did. Alec is responding to a blog entry from The Artful Writer.

I'm still not sure that I can predict whether releasing a film to theaters and on DVD will prove to be a useful long-term strategy given the continued decline in box office. I do know that the expense of attending movies, the improvement in home theater systems, and perhaps even the development of quality TV programming have made theaters less attractive options, but I don't think the trends away from moviegoing are inevitable. At the same time, I think it's probably a mistake to judge day and date release from a single movie.
