    Re: Comcast confirms purchase of Blackstone's half of Universal Orlando Resort

    Awesome. I think corporate unity is important and for the past decade, Universal Studios anything was basically "anything that isn't Disney". I think having a theme park that belongs to them will help the overall brand for Universal and let them rethink the movies they make as well as the attractions that go along with them.

    Not to say that they won't continue to go outside of Universal, but it should help in the long run.
