The paradox of choice, subscription fatigue and content malaise.

Gilbert the Gilbarian (from the Planet Gilbaar) and RMB host this edition of Robservations, where they take a closer look at the paralyzingly large array of content available to the genre entertainment connoisseur like those found in the PGS* community. Rob also discusses a number of other issues facing movie goers and streamers today, including …

  • Can kids learn about history by creating their own take (by creating a comic book or building a model)?
  • The importance of passion when it comes to fueling one’s creative fire
  • Is there too much content out there? Is well-made content given the time it deserves to be appreciated by the viewer any more?
  • How does a creator realize his/her own destiny?
  • Did Disney buy tickets to inflate CAPTAIN MARVEL’S opening weekend box office take? (in a word: NO)
  • What are RMB’s expectations for LUCY IN THE SKY with Natalie Portman (not such a good trailer, but still possibly a good movie)
  • The 22 movies of the MCU (Phases I through III) will be called The Infinity Saga
  • Why will Disney+ blow away Netflix?
  • Why isn’t CANNONBALL RUN on blu-ray yet (maybe as a two-movie set with CBII?

… plus super-chat questions from viewers, movie tips, and more.
