News Block: Netflix's dominance and the Golden Globes' unexpected moves
The tendency of studios and producers to license their content to Netflix is becoming increasingly apparent. For example, Paramount's Yellowstone will soon be available on Netflix here, but previously HBO (Sírhant művek, Insecure) and Showtime (Yellowjackets) have also sold series to Netflix.
It seems as if competitors have realized that they would be better off financially if they sold their own production to Netflix after a while, because there, thanks to the advanced recommendation system of the interface, a movie or series can be easily re-entered.
In the news section of the broadcast, we'll also discuss the Golden Globe Awards, which will bring the big night for Oppenheimer, Palhe and Autodlas. We discuss why the broadcast itself and the opening monologue of the host, Joe Coy, received so negative reviews, but we also comment on which groups were surprised and where the decision of the renewed voting rule was fully justified.
Topic of the week: The boy and the gray heron
Perhaps one of the most widely recognized creators of animation, Hagao Miyazaki's animation The Boy and the Gray Heron is said to be the last of the master's works. The biographical-inspired film, which recalls Miyazaki's childhood and life, wrapped up the Telex Filmklub program last year, where we saw the work before the premiere, as David Clague wrote a review of the film.
This week's topic is The Boy and the Gray Heron, discussed in the broadcast by David Clague, Barna Backus and Balint Antal. In addition to the film's interpretation and impressive visual presentation, it was also discussed, among other things, what the film's negatives are, how The Boy and the Gray Heron fits into Miyazaki's work to date, and what similarities and differences it shows compared to his previous films.
Random Series Recommendation: Latest Winners
Slow Horses, now in its third season, is much more than just another spy thriller, and the good thing about the series coming to the Apple TV+ front is that the main characters are forgotten figures of the genre, spies who failed or for whatever reason. It didn't fit into the system. The series revolves around the repulsive, disgusting and extremely sarcastic character of Jackson Lamb (Gary Oldman is great in the role), but the secondary characters too are all well thought out and multi-dimensional characters. There will definitely be a fourth and fifth season for the series, so if you haven't watched it yet, you can watch it at any time.
