The solution to the VOD versus the movie theater experience

Because of the pandemic a lot of filmmakers have been switching to VOD just to not release their movies but to turn a profit the problem is it’s been going to VOD companies like Amazon Prime Disney + and Netflix.

Meanwhile, the movie theater experience it has been put on hold movie theaters are experiencing a very difficult time keeping up with the prophets and they’re the biggest companies that may not be getting the help that they desperately need currently movie theater chains are closing up and facing the threat of not just closures for good, employees that have dedicated years, some even film students who are working in the theaters just to learn are being affected by this.

Except for Tales from the Hood 3 a lot of the movies that have been released with the price tag of $20 to $30 (Mulan) but the theater chains like Cinemark, AMC, and regal cinemas are being left out these are huge companies that are facing the same fate as Payless, Toys R Us and MoviePass.

But there is an overwhelming solution to all this instead of having these movies released on VOD to cable companies, and other streaming services why not give first dibs theater chains that have vod services like AMC Theaters, regal, and Cinemark keeping them afloat until this pandemic is over and until this pandemic is over and even partner with food delivery companies such as Uber Eats Postmates to deliver a movie pack to people’s homes who order their films thus bringing back the jobs that have been lost over this pandemic and that can be potentially lost by inaction.

Also as a bonus give Early Access and discounts to members of their MoviePass system.

Like a boss second look ( spoiler review)

After watching like a boss for second time a lot of things caught my attention Tiffany haddish I didn’t interview with Breakfast Club on Thursday where she was not only promoting the movie but speaking financially woke as Dr. Boyce Watkins would say however this movie displayed far from progressive I would go as far as saying it was very cliche of the black stereotype and white savior.

Like a boss is about 2 lifelong friends Mel and Mia who start a Makeup Company there are two employees which are played by Billy Porter(barret) and Jennifer Coolidge who adds to the chemistry of the film.

Where we get into a little bit of trouble in this film is the setup of these characters Mia which is the eccentric boss of the 2 who loves to party, never gets anything done, leaves a mess her partner to clean up and who has a different idea on how a business is run which bad unless it prevents you from bringing in profit and doesn’t always listen to her partner, then you have Mel the one with good credit handles the finances and ultimately comes up with this crazy idea of accepting an offer after she fails to explain to her business partner Mia that they are in debt and they need this help and has a lack of confidence and always seeks approval which is exploited in the movie.

The movie starts off with a montage how they went from an online business in Mia’s mother’s garage to a brick and mortar soon humble beginnings.

At the beginning of the film, the ladies stop by the store before heading to their friend’s baby shower where we are introduced to Barrett(Billy Porter) and Jen (Jennifer Coolidge) Jen is one of the beauty technicians and Barrett handles manufacturing products that they sell called one nightstand.

While Mia does her thing Mel goes to back to check on Barrett where she learned that Mia who is supposed to finish the bags of makeup didn’t finish because she ate an edible and as I have put it off till the next day Mel also learns that they are behind on production of their signature product, in addition, she gives unnecessary discounts Mel explains to them that they need to keep up with production and not give these discounts out because they’re losing money.

At their friends baby shower, you can see and hear by Mel’s facial expressions and voice that she is definitely hiding something one of her friends parents talks about how her daughter sold her company for a great prophet which makes Mel feel like a failure so much so that she needs a break though she goes upstairs and smoke a joint with Mia as they’re talking I hear the girls coming upstairs and they notice that the baby is in the room with them that they’re smoking in, so they hide outside where they are immediately caught Mel feels ashamed and can’t handle the judgment but Mia comes out and Save the Day and tells her friends off before she takes off her weave and both jump into the water.

The next day Mel reflects what her friends were saying chats with Mia about it we also learn about Mel’s backstory about how Mia took her in when her mother was on meth.

In the next scene they return to the store to find The Apprentice played by (Karan Soni) in the shop waiting for them, he explains that they have attracted the attention of Claire Luna played by Salma Hayek Mia is put back by it not knowing how bad things really are and doesn’t want to go through with it but Mel convinces her to at least see what she has to offer especially considering that if they don’t Shape Up you’re going to lose the business within 6 months.

While waiting for the meeting Mia finally asks the question how bad are they in debt Mal explains that they are $493,000 in debt Mia is shocked to hear that things have gotten that bad and Mel feels as if she has failed her friend and business partner even though it is the other way around( side note when in business you must discuss with your partner everything that is going on it is important to be honest no matter what the circumstances).

They meet with Claire and Claire offers them a deal that Mel can’t refuse Mia objects and after a drink and karaoke Mia finally agrees and when they meet again with Claire Luna Claire offers turn 51% of the company just as long as things don’t go south between the ladies Mia assures her that that’s not going to happen.

That day they are given the task of coming up with a proposal that Claire can use at her launch party, as they are discussing what their proposal should be for their brand Mia decides that she wants to party before she thinks about what she’s going to say at the party Mel is the one that’s pulling the work trying to find out what’s the best strategy after Mia’s sexcapades end they smoke a joint and get ready to eat some fries they get back to work on it and come up with a great proposal that they dub proud which Claire in an attempt to manipulate rejects.

And the next scene Claire come to the store and checks out Barrett’s station and Barrett, unfortunately, admits that he does 75 he can do more but why to go hard, so Claire decides to mass-produce the product and tells Mel to fire Barrett and Mel obliges.

Mel and Mia’s next task is to come up with another product that she can sell Mel comes up with the idea of double-sided lipstick which as a business you definitely want to have more products just to stay consistent and creative with your business.

After they fire Barrett days later they go to their friend’s birthday party where her friend hires an executive chef who teaches them how to make cuisines during this time the two begin to argue over the current situation and how clear has totally been manipulating the company that they started together while no one is looking, Mel spikes Mia a stuffed pepper with more ghost peppers this part of the movie is a little tone deaf.

Claire continues to manipulate Mia and Mel by refusing to work with them because they didn’t live up to her expectations Mia makes a scene Mel apologizes for her then Mia decides to be the stereotypical Mad Black Woman by taking Claire’s Club and is smashing the window.

Claire convinces Mel to come to a network event where she can show off her skills Mel then drags Mia with her to the event that is when Claire manipulates them one last time and criticizes there artistic expression for Mel to try to fix the issue to try to impress Claire and Mia finally giving up and Calling it Quits which gives Claire 51% of the company the girls split.

Mel stays with the house while Mia stage with her boyfriend and then you have the friendly Montage of getting the girls back together as Mia meet with Barrett he tells Mia what she needs to hear how she took Mel’s friendship for granted and Mel learns the truth about Claire’s initial intention she steals her idea and gives it to masculine friends Mel and Mia get back together in the most cliche cell phone scene possible.

They begin to get their things together create a new product ride or die and they crash Claire’s lunch party where she tries to play everything off and gives into the girl’s man’s not knowing that they had a new investor which is Claire’s former partner play by Lisa Kudrow who reminds Claire that they still own 49% of the company so regardless she still has to pay them for a company that she helped build it back up while simultaneously trying to break it down.

Finally, in the end, their company is a huge success and becomes a franchise Mel convinces Mia to say that they made it with Mel’s guidance and that is the end of the movie.

When you take away all the racist stereotypes the movie does the job to educate the audience and to provide entertainment both had a lot to contribute to the film but that realization was lost in the constant cliches when it comes to business and accepting investors and the controls that the investors tend to have you saw this in the situation with John Schnatter from Papa John’s who was removed for saying the n-word during a conference call that he believes was taken out of context

Thank you for reading this is the second look of like a boss I still believe that anyone who wants to open up their own business should watch this movie or can watch Joy or Horrible Bosses 2 which are both on Amazon Prime.
