MoviePass? Pass! < That was lame but you get it.
MoviePass started as a Holy Grail for movie lovers. Unlimited movies at $10 a month seemed too good to be true, cause it was. But only it wasn’t, for a little while. If I was MoviePass’s CEO I’d say “Let the ship go down with dignity!” and just let the company sink into debt as cinefiles in Cali and NY bled us dry, but I think they have shareholders and stuff so that can’t happen.
This part’s cliche but it’s important so don’t report me for plagiarizing you bum. MoviePass thought they’d be like a gym where you sign up and pay but never actually go, hahahahaha, dummies. People saw MoviePass with the mentality that if you have a show a day and don’t actually use it, you’re wasting money. That, and it’s easier to go sit in a theater than do crunches.
The Twittersphere lit up when people couldn’t get tickets to the movies they wanted. Some were surprised, but most of it was just sadness; people knew it was coming, and wanted to cherish the little bit of it they had left.
This new systems of $9.95 a month for 3 movies seems a little insulting. It’s not, I get it. That’s what needs to be done to keep the company alive, but it’s really hard to roll back a subscription like that. You can’t go from eating at Olive Garden to eating at McDonalds (I grew up in a small town; Olive Garden was fancy so quit the judgement).
The worst news is that AMC’s A-List service is gaining subscribers while MoviePass is losing views. The jockeys have chosen their new saddles, and it is MoviePass’ competitors. When you’re saddling a horse, if you don’t properly cinch the girth you will fall off.
