    Sure I will watch the big blockbuster movie on the big screen because nothing beats Star Wars or the Marvel movies on the big screen - but this crap that wins the Oscars does not get me to go to the theaters any more.
    Nope No ONE .... but Star Wars or Marvel movies ...
    yeah ok, shut up and take my money ... but I also go to 11 Am movies that are cheaper ...

    THIS is part of why I don't care much for actors anymore - they want to be considered "artists" - but they make dull and sometimes preachy crap.
    some of the better movies I have seen recently [last 3 yrs] had a bunch of nobodies

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    And while we're at it, Mel Gibson has a decent track record too, even if Hollywood is only slowly re-accepting him.

    I still don't go to the movies for either one, though.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    Leonardo Dicaprio, Denzel, Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell... they usually have great movies. I don't always see them in the theatres though, but I do make a point to rent them once they come out. I usually only go to the movies if I've seen a movie ad and it looks super can not miss good!

    The last person I had in this category was Robin Williams.

    See, this is so subjective. For every nominee, including mine, I can think of ready examples I don't like. There are a bunch of Hanks films I could NOT care less about, a BUNCH. Yet, if you said "wanna see the new Tom Hanks movie?" he's one of the few I'd be willing, without condition, to give it a go. While there are some fabulous Williams movies, he has some, like Hanks, you could not pay me to watch. If you said "Wanna see new Robin Williams movie?" I'd be a little hesitant. "What's it about?"

    Then, if you said "it's a flick about resurrection and the after life" I'd say you're a sick #### and, yeah! I wanna see it!
