Is Spielberg onboard with Mega-Meg’s Quibi-Fix? Why is he attacking Netlfix? Is he preparing the way for Quibi – by destroying the competition?
I am going to talk with Netflix about designing Labyrinth-Net-Learning aimed at bringing women into the field of Computer Science, by constructing their own labyrinth along the lines of the Bohemian Labyrinth of the world. I watched a program about the shortage of women who are adept with computers. Shocking! I suspect women are susceptible to false hierarchies due to being oppressed for thousands of years. They are JOINERS. They may not be hard-wired to take the learning initiative and be LEADERS. A program to overcome this has been invented. I also suspect this is why women join churches and surrender to a pyramid deity, which I believe Mega-Meg is trying to become, she gathering a team of male illusion-makers around her, it permitted for her to be at the center of her labyrinth because she’s got money and power.
I envision LNL as being a color-pallet of various media forms that are building blocks in constructing a virtual labyrinth that can be a movie, can be a museum, can be a room full of scientists. All parts are interchangeable and, are UNDER CONSTRUCTION. The idea if being turned into a SUPER MEDIA CONSUMER by Mega-Meg and her Flying Monkeys, will not benefit women – or men! I see being PAID for use of your labyrinth verses being PUT on a MEGA-CHAIN of MEDIA-DEBT. If you GENERATE INTEREST, you own value! We all want PERSONAL POWER. Getting an EDUCATION was/is a means of empowering and enriching your life, especially in a monetary way.
Netflix and Quibi are charging $8 dollars a month. For $4 dollars a month you get access to LNL and get to view interesting and entertaining labyrinths. Think of a crochet club that has an annual sale of the goods they make. This is like a COMPUTER CURRENCY generated by MENTAL LABOR. One is paid by the amount of viewers from a CENTRAL BANK. Designing the BEST BANK system, earns YOU MONEY! This money can be invested in other Entertainment Enterprises. You are part of a LARGE PORTFOLIO.
The streaming giant didn’t name Spielberg directly in its tweet, but considering his views on Netflix films and the Academy Awards, it seems like the statement is associated with the director’s thoughts about their participation as contenders in award season.
“We love cinema,” the official Netflix Twitter account wrote. They continue with a list of things they loved including:
- Access for people who can’t always afford, or live in towns without, theaters
- Letting everyone, everywhere enjoy releases at the same time
- Giving filmmakers more ways to share art
“These things are not mutually exclusive,” they concluded in a tweet that could be considered a clap back at the filmmaker.
The success of Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma at this year’s Oscars has royally pissed off Steven Spielberg, so much so he’s reportedly doubling down on banning streaming films from awards contention once and for all. Per Indiewire, a Spielberg vs. Netflix battle will be reaching its peak at next week’s Board of Governors meeting at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, where the director — who’s a board member of the directing branch — is planning to “propose rule changes” that would specifically prevent Netflix, and other streaming outlets such as Amazon and Hulu, from qualifying for Oscars contention. Spielberg had previously discussed his disgust at Netflix campaigning for Oscars, equating its film slate to mere television movies.
“Once you commit to a television format, you’re a TV movie. You certainly, if it’s a good show, deserve an Emmy, but not an Oscar,” he said at the time. “I don’t believe films that are just given token qualifications in a couple of theaters for less than a week should qualify for the Academy Award nomination.” By diversifying and expanding its original film slate, Netflix has received a handful of Oscars nominations over the past two years, which include Roma, Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Dee Rees’ Mudbound, and Ava DuVernay’s 13th. Netflix even scored a win for Best Documentary last year with Icarus, which revolved around Russia’s Olympic doping scandal. Please keep Spielberg in your thoughts at this time.
