Not Oscar bait at all.
I don't know though why it is that way sometimes. I don't understand why is there such a big disconnect between what "the masses" likes and critics and the Academy. I like most of the movies the Academy picks, and I usually think they are the best of the mainstream movies. Nothing really good "The Attack", "Poetry", "A Separation" or "Amoure" or any of those films but at least the best from the Oscar pool. How do they select that? And what do you mean like "the masses"? Have you noticed as well that people tend to prefer I guess "less-heavy" or more campy, predictable Hollywood-ish type films with familiar faces?

Um, are we saying Argo is loved by the masses and The King's Speech isn't? Who pulled this **** and from where?

The King's Speech made 414 million dollars compared to Argo's 232. From where I am standing, The King's Speech looks to be much more beloved by the masses than Argo.

EDIT: I am not even a proponent of "Oscar" films and even I think that The King's Speech is 10 times the movie that Argo is. Argo is basically nonsensical tosh, a rubbish thriller, the equivalent of Jack Ryan and Jack Reacher or whatever those movies are.

No doubt, Denny O'Neil's take on the whole universe has always seemed the most psychologically realized, daring, and endearing. Frank Miller has nothing on his Batman arcs. I wish we could get Affleck directing a Dennis O'Neill script for the next standalone.

Jack Reacher really was a cool movie. I'm so psyched that McQuarrie is writing/directing M:I5.

Neither here nor there, I know.

O Neil/Adams is probably my favorite Comic Book version of Batman. That and Grant Morrison's take.

Ideally, this Batman would be 70's style Detective oriented Batman, with a "realistic" version of the Gray and Blue, Yellow Oval outfit. Sadly, we'll probably get another Frank Miller inspired take.

I wonder what kind of physical progress Affleck has been making of late. BvS starts filming in roughly a month.

He doesn't have to do much, he already has the frame by default, he just needs to get it cut and he's set.

Yeah, I'm psyched too. It's one of Cruise's best movies. How dare slumcat insult it?

You're just figuring him out now?

Oh and Jack Reacher was bomb as hell! So underrated.

Nah, I've figured him out earlier. Man, who loves "films" but highly anticipates Hercules and Scott Adkins movies.

Indeed, it was! Really underrated. So happy a sequel got green-lit.

Jack Reacher had some great car chases so I hope to see the same for MI5.
