Are you trying to tell me that they actually worried about recording dialogue??
Haha, I'm just kidding :)
Ahh yes... the summer of MoviePass was a great one. Those were the days...
I had that same thought... And I love this idea but I don't love paying for it, especially where then are so many other ways of getting screenshots.
...for a good reason.
There is something about this style of film criticism that rubs me the wrong way. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's like this guy is always thinking in such meta terms that he doesn't allow himself to be emersed in a film. The feeling I get is he's too obsessed with taking everything out of context because believing in a movie would be too silly for him.
Not that his opinions aren't valid, he can think whatever he wants to, but his style of journalism is equivalent to recutting the fight club trailer to make it look like a rom-com just because... I don't know, it's probably funny?
Did anyone else get these vibes?
I think the big reasons are that everyone is waking up to the fact that all the noms and wins are basically bought from the academy. The oscars are not awarding movies for excellence, it's a money game, thus leaving out films that actually deserve to be there.
Also, I don't think anyone under 40 has TV/cable anymore, just like we don't have printers. I'm sure there are sites that stream the oscars but no one really wants to search that out just to watch a 2 and a half-hour ad for hollywood. Especally when we know we can come to sites like this the next morning and get a full list of noms and winners in five mins.
The oscars can be fixed but it would mean a huge overhaul that goes against the money making reason it exists in the first place. Someone could be very successful by making a new award show that's not bought...
