The future of moviegoing is at risk...at least that's what Mr. Spielberg thinks. He also thinks that Netflix shouldn't be considered for Academy Awards, and instead presented as possible primetime Emmy considerations...since the films are technically shown on television. Felicity Wren and Max Timm agree to a point, however there are elements to this conversation that deserve a more thorough review. It isn't so simple, and the times they are a-changing, Mr. Spielberg. Tune in and join the conversation. A big thanks to our wine sponsor, Steele Wines, and a new sponsor, ShoreScripts.com. Check them both out!
