Are you a film purist?
And if so, are you an extremist?
In this episode Sol jumps into the host's chair to see just how many of film purist Tom's buttons he can push before he breaks. Co-hosts Adam and Lauren join in for this gut-wrenching human drama of perfect cinema conditions and absolute respect for the artists vs. workouts, cleaning, internet browsing, eating and watching films on 1.5x speed - on your smartphone.
The way that we consume movies has a changed a lot over the past 125 years. It is now possible to pause a film while watching it, watch a film the kitchen while doing the dishes and even eat an entire meal while watching a movie. While this would have seen but a dream back in the silent era, watching a film without being totally focused on it is a growing reality in the world of today. But is that the best and most enjoyable way to watch a film?
Some of the pivotal blasphemies may include:
- Doing chores
- Watching a film in parts over several days
- Watching films while on public transport
- Watching films on your phone
- Watching films with a different frame rate, like 1.5x speed
- Anything that does not replicate exact cinema conditions
