Jessica:  I just heard a rumor that “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” the sequel... the Green Legend… is being released exclusively on Netflix and IMAX.

Marni:  That’s two very different platforms, right?

Jessica:  I agree. It’s going to be interesting, because I think people aren’t going to the movies as much as they used to because of things like Netflix.

Marni:  I’m guilty of that.

Jessica:  Me too, me too. So I think it will be nice because people will be able to watch the movie in the comfort of their own homes. But I’ve actually never seen an IMAX movie before.

Marni:  It’s amazing!

Jessica:  Is it?

Marni:  Oh my gosh. It’s all around you. So yeah, if you want the ultimate theater experience, IMAX is the way to go.

Jessica:  It may get me off the couch and in the IMAX theater.

Marni:  That original film came out quite a while ago. I would have to rewatch the first one in order to brush up on the storyline.

Jessica:  Gosh, I should do that, too. Maybe we should have a viewing party, and then we can watch the second one on Netflix.

Marni:  Or IMAX, if you’re up for the experience.

Jessica:  That sounds like fun.

I didn’t see original film of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. So before I see the sequel, I should watch the original film to brush up on my mind. But whatever I see, I would rather stay in the comfort of my house than going to the theater.


I have contracted with Netflix now, so I don’t need two platforms.
