    GD needs to stop act like they have the best movie taste. Counter-culture by hating what mainstream audiences liked doesn’t make your taste looks good.

    Mainstream doesn’t always mean garbage and vice versa.  Do yourself a favor and watch a Popcorn flick once.

    My friend watched TPOTD in Telluride and his reactions convince me there are obvious reasons why it didn’t win Golden Lion. It’s very accessible and it’s not very dark. It’s the screenplay that doesn’t do it justice for elevating it into a masterpiece like “The Piano.” Right now I’m putting my hope in these 4:

    I thought the writing was TPOD’s weakness also

    You mean what they were most exposed to? So billion dollar studios with such intense publicity and almost brainwash over the years you’re inclined to believe it’s more enjoyable and entertaining than a “slower” film?

    I’m not saying the same doesn’t happen the other way around tho. Specially when people here are so dependent on critics reviews or precursors nominations to justify their personal taste.

    Also, what if it’s time for a Uwe Boll reevaluation.

    Uwe Boll should be banned from filmmaking, period.

    Nice points, but worth nothing that Popcorn flick like Marvel are always more enjoyable for mainstream audiences than stuffs liked by guys here even before MCU become a thing. Take a look at Bond movies, MI movies that has existed at the same time with “Cinema at its peak”. General audiences would enjoy some people kicking ass with explosion background more than a story about racism, or any subject matters that has been repeatedly used in Oscar baits. Its sad but true. Also applies for mainstream romcoms like Kissing Booth and Any 90s Romcom you could name.

    Besides, you can have an enjoyable popcorn flick while having great emotional impact (see: The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 2 by Sam Raimi). MCU just doesn’t utilize that formula and went with their own instead, which works and has been overdone since. Its not GD cup of tea, but yeah it is what it is.

    I mean 8 times out of 10 I completely agree with the original poster. I’m only predicting these “slower” films because it’s a race at the end of the day, but I agree with the OP. You have 10 nominations, why vote for all arthouse slow burner films? Am I saying let’s go vote for Marvel, DC films? No, but come on, they do almost entirely vote for some shit that is straight sleep inducing at times, well, a lot of the times. I think what the OP is saying is would it kill them to vote for a popcorn flick that has both style and substance, and also good acting with a good storyline is all.

    Me right now with the marvel discourse:

    Who is the person you have in mind when you say this? I…think I consider myself the most hardcore of cinephile but I fucking LOVE a lot of mainstream films, I never miss a Marvel film, I’m hot on many franchises but I don’t know a thing about some because…everyone has some things they don’t know. E.g. I’ve never watched a single Fast & Furious film lol. That’s honestly just….accident.

    Honestly, I watch trash “popcorn flicks” all the time—but when I say trash I’m qualifying it. There are good ones and terrible ones. I love Mean Girls and The Hunger Games. Yeah, I actually genuinely believe The Hunger Games films are really fucking good lol! No one’s going to succeed in shaming me for it so ¯_(ツ)_/¯ On the other hand, I have no idea why I love Saw films lol bc most are absolute trash but…I love em anyway lol

    Most people I know are like this—if they’re not admitting it, they’re elitist pricks but I highly doubt it’s actually TRUE. The only people I think who probably only watch one kind of cinema are filmmakers. I kinda don’t get who you’re describing? Elitists?

    Oh c’mon you can enjoy Marvel movies and still admit they’re all mostly the same thing. There’s nothing elitist about that. Elitism is saying these movies don’t have a right to exist, which I don’t see anybody doing.

    Denis is completely right about Marvel movies but also they’re fine and I really enjoy them, that’s my take.

    Although lol that he said that when like half the cast of DUNE is in the MCU.

    To clarify: I’m on board with Denis. I just pointing out how some GD Folks are just saying “Marvel bad” just like when they shit on crowdpleasing movie that made it into BP lineup. MCU Movies, save for few exceptions, are formulaic for the better or worse and it worked for them. They haven’t had a critically derided movie since Thor: The Dark World.

    Blind Marvel stans will find a way to bash Denis, though.
