Haha I won't begrudge you your hill, I passionately love Cinema and consuming it in all it's glory. I went and saw Tennet twice because I realised it was a mistake not watching it IMAX the first time haha. Getting lost in a film is a beautiful experience because they're more than the sum of their parts - the visuals & sounds make the story that much more powerful.

But ultimately, the story being told is the most pure aspect of the medium as an artform to me. They're like modern day myths. With that said, it doesn't matter what device I watch a film on - it's whether the story touched me, whether I think about it for weeks after I've seen it, whether it's taught me something.

A good film will engage you in this way whether you're in the IMAX or watching it casually on your phone whilst doing something else.

Going to the cinema doesn't just cost the price of the admission - most importantly it's the time commitment, which some people just can't afford. A Netflix password can be shared between a whole family too.

The Community episode that was cut was the Dungeons & Dragons episode - because of Chang as a 'dark elf' appearing in 'Black face'. Happened to 30 Rcok & The Office too.

Unrelated to the topic at hand, but I'd recommend you check out my favourite YouTuber 'Like Stories of Old' he makes long form philosophical essays on films (they're kind of like films themselves) - I feel like you'd really enjoy them seeing as you're so passionate about cinema!

I'm a perfectionist with realistic expectations, a recovering Sales Engineer turned Product Marketer, and I'm trying to be more cynical about being cynical.
