Zach on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” Without speaking to your larger point, since when does "universally agreed to be outstanding" classify as objective truth? I for one, found the cheesy self-aggrandaization of LLL pretty hard to watch, namely because Oscar-bait of this kind makes me squeamish and nauseas. The John Legend character was especially laughable. That LLL is breaking award records (which means nothing) is all too predictable and makes me resent it all the more. Remind me which Best Picture film in the last however many years actually represents something cutting edge? And please don't say Birdman. While I'd love to applaud the Academy for that choice, their neglect of Boyhood is a joke. Yes, I know this is all a matter of opinion. 8 minutes ago
Cutshaw on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” Okay, so i got my years a little mixed up there. Not that taking Selma out of the equation and replacing it with Creed does anything whatsoever to diminish my point. 24 minutes ago
Cutshaw on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” This just sums up the significant nonsense of last years #OscarsSoWhite movement. Straining (and you clearly are) to find problems with a movie pretty much universally agreed to be outstanding on every level to make a point about an issue that's been largely misrepresented only serves to further cloud water that's already been muddied by misguided, cause rallying halfwits. You're more than entitled to not like La La Land, just don't try to paint it as being because of it's lack of diversity or apparent safeness, it's a movie that walks a far more precipitous tightrope walk than any of the competition you mentioned above. 28 minutes ago
Heijoshin on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” I personally could care less about the color of an actor's skin, the director's skin, that of the producer, the writer or any other member of a movie crew. And I certainly don't believe that a movie or a person should be given an award BECAUSE of the color of someone's skin, their gender, sexual orientation or even the 'importance of the topic' that is being addressed in the production. 2 hours ago
the hong Kong cavaliers on “Have Your Say: About Original Non-original Movie Poster Art...” I don't usually like any of the new design they come up with , the first thing I look forward when I order a movie from shout factory or even Arrow video for that matter is the reversible sleeves in order to have the original poster art . 3 hours ago
bricriu . on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” With the amount of Chinese companies investing in Hollywood, and the world ticket sale market, (i.e. Chinese market), becoming increasingly important, I believe it's only a matter of time before we begin seeing more and more Asians in big-budget movies. Maybe I'm wrong though... 4 hours ago
bricriu . on “Destroy All Monsters: Oscars Stay White As Long As Movies Like LA LA LAND Exist” The Oscars are a popularity contest. Popularity contests are typically won by the majority. Personally, I don't respect awards shows enough to give two shits about who wins or loses. Those who want to find diverse content have no trouble finding it. Those who don't aren't going to be converted by award trophies. 4 hours ago

cjohnston on “Review: DETOUR, Christopher Smith's Mind and Time-Bending Neo Noir” - I think a.) something might have gotten lost in translation (and articulation) here; and b.) There is absolutely NO cotton-picking point to point fingers, upon this matter. *especially when I'm the one opening up conversations and suggestions.. 1 day ago
