Changing Ways of Seeing Movies
An article in The Star looks at not only how we go to the movies these days, but how different generations receive media in general.
Digital media have not only created a world starkly different from the world of a mere 15 years ago, they have changed the way people who live in the world think, behave, create and consume.
They have facilitated a generation gap that makes the divide between Boomers and their parents narrow by comparison, and they have accelerated the pace of cultural and political change to something like warp speed. In this world, The Social Network, set in 2004, can seem like the Dark Ages.
