The Big 5 Major Hollywood Studios

Found this useful page on the Wikipedia and I may turn it in to two or more posts later
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_film_studio

I need to check my notes from college but I was looking for the list of what I recall was the Big 5 Hollywood Studios when I found that Wikipedia entry and between that and this page http://www.ealmanac.com/1843/numbers/the-big-five-movies-studios/ I think I can say for now that these are the ones I remembered:

  1. Fox Film Corporation
  2. Loew’s/MGM
  3. Paramount Pictures
  4. RKO Radio Pictures
  5. Warner Bros.

As I recall the studios all had a specialty. I will look this up also but MGM was Musicals, Warner’s was Gangster films, Universal (a minor studio apparently) was Horror.

I do want to post more on Thomas “Inceville” Ince, the Minors, why Hollywood is in California since I brought this up and it is all related. And of course because the references could go offline and I’d only have my notes here for reference. So these are topics I mean to develop into posts.

DVDs or Personal Video libraries will return

With the unfortunate turnover in the Netflix catalogue I wanted to make a post here predicting the return of the DVD or some form of personal video library/collection.

I believe that if you have to have 5 or 10 subscriptions to streaming services to get movies that this will create a larger demand for “on demand” viewing from studios instead of a subscription, sort of like iTunes but for movies, or people will return to buying and keeping a DVD to insure they can watch their favorite movie when they like.

If there is a way to store your favorite movies digitally or buy a digital copy then that may work as well but my thinking is that if people can’t login and stream or watch either what they want or what they watched yesterday/last month, then they will turn to buying a copy to keep. Either on DVD which is also a pretty reliable back up, or a digital copy backed up to another source.

So the death of the personal video library has been exaggerated.

You heard it here.
:D
