Netflix announces Dolby Atmos support for one movie, Okja

Future movies and shows are planned for Dolby Atmos over the rest of the year.Okja is now streaming on Netflix and playing in select iPic theaters In New York and Los Angeles.Through a translator, Bong says he understands why the French cinemas might have been angry but not why they should have influence on the programming at Cannes, an worldwide festival. When the company decides to award Okja with the title of Best Super Pig, Okja is taken from Mija’s home in Korea to NY.This sudden change in tone is made more off-putting by the fact that the film has only two realistic characters, Okja and Mija.This deceptively childlike and often amusing film, which premieres on Netflix today, becomes much darker as it progresses and by the end has delivered a message about the evils of capitalism and the flawed relationship humans have with animals. It is one of the most well-staged, paced, and exciting vehicle chases I’ve seen in a movie in a very long time. It was fun and amusing, emotional, and captivating, but it also had several action sequences I wasn’t really expecting.When the ten years are up and Mirando’s spokesman Dr. Johnny (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrives to take Okja back to NY for the big pig awards show, Mija is distraught.Other cast members include Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun and Giancarlo Esposito. A scene in which Okja is forced to breed with a hulking super pig named Alfonse is especially unsettling as, before that point, the film could conceivably be a kids movie.To stay competitive in the Video on demand market, Netflix has pretty simple strategy: betting on high quality exclusive content, and improving watching experience with 4K and HDR.To me, Okja was more an indictment of capitalism in the food industry and the lengths companies will go to trick consumers into eating their products. According to Mirando these super pigs eat less, create less waste and produce far more meat than normal pigs. It’s a problem with the mass production and how we treat animals in the era of capitalism. There’s a magic at the heart of each of Joon Ho’s films for that very reason, though, which makes it hard not to get caught up in the sheer talent and enthusiasm that he brings to each and every single one of his movies, and his latest film, Okja, is no exception. While the relationship between Okja and Mija is heartwarming, and the film’s clownish corporate culture intriguing, it suffers when it attempts to comment on the real world. If you have heart, pets, or just like/love animals, in general, I think you can empathize with Mija and Okja’s relationship and understand the movie on the most basic human level.
