  • Thanks for your comment, Bob! I’ve long wondered why theaters and film distributors don’t program the coming attractions to the films that follow them. Bill

  • Thank you Bill. I’ll check some of these out. I only go to see films in limited release at theaters specifically for them, when I do go. There are a lot of good films/series being producted for Hulu, Netflix, AMC etc., that I don’t need theater films at all.

    “Hollywood” does put out a couple of good films in a given year (better than none!) but even with those I’m subjected to an audio-visual assualt on my senses with the previews. Never, EVER again; God.

    I did see ‘Fences’ about 9 months ago in a ‘regular’ theater, but only went in after the repetitive explosion, brain-dead ‘action’ crap previews were done. That goes for the equally bad other genres as well. They’re NOT the only game in town AT ALL, though they’ll never admit it. Most of thse films require no translation, doesn’t matter what point you start watching it, and are a tailor made “product” for worldwide destruction—I mean distribution, where the real money is for them.
