In a word, pretentious.
Oooh, I'm all socially conscious! Ooooo!
Fucknuts. I wanna be entertained, not preached at.
The movie is so very LA I'm surprised it doesn't come with its own Starbucks franchise. And I can see why the AMPAS gave it best picture, which is why the AMPAS can lick my sweaty sack.
I don't watch the Oscars. Honestly, I could give a rat's ass who wins breast actress or best picture, because it's not real anymore. Ever since Shakespeare in Love won best picture in 1999 (over Saving Private Ryan), I've given up on AMPAS having any connection to the pulse of American movies, and what makes a movie great.
I don't make movies to win awards. They're certainly nice, but crap in a hat, if that's the reason that you're making a movie, you just don't speak my language.
I like the craft of making a movie. I like telling a good, entertaining story. I don't think I need to teach you a lesson or make you think; you probably get enough thinking in your life. If you're gonna watch a movie, you're more than likely looking for an escape from reality, not a reminder of it.
Yeah, I'm no expert. I like low-budget little horror films and sci-fi adventures. And I realize that my tastes in movies aren't exactly mainstream.
Know what? I'm okay with that.
