    Usually, I don’t agree with Jordan Ruimi(World of Reel) but today he said The Oscar movies are Dead at The Movie Theaters and he is right about that

    I blame The MCU and The Streamers. After COVID 19, Most People Worldwide(The General Public) only want The MCU at The Movie Theaters and they want the rest of movies at APPLE TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video

    One silver lining I can see is that I don’t think “the oscar” movie is necessarily dead, but rather movies geared solely towards adults are dying and we’ve confused that with oscar movie. What an oscar movie is changes with popular tastes and I have a sliver of hope that the oscars and studios will adapt appropriately. I just think being into “high art” movies is not considered as “cool” as it was when a lot of us were growing up, but appealing to young and old audiences has a history of finding success at the oscars. Look at movies like Titanic or Rocky or Star Wars or most of Steven Spielbergs early movies. The academy and the public has always gone in cyclic phases in the types of movies they’ve been interested in. Movies like The Woman King, The Menu, Elvis, and of course EEAAO, and even less oscar-y stuff like The Lost City or Bullet Train or Ticket to Paradise has proven that original, self-contained movies can be made in a variety of genre’s that entertain and interest more casual film fans and have enough artistic merit to interest cinephiles.

    I think what’s more the case is that studios and awards campaign departments are out of touch with what the future of oscar movies is. Millenials are really the first generation to grow up with oscar campaigning as a year round industry, and we’re struggling to adapt to what an “oscar movie” is having to change a little bit.

    Many people here hate it but that’s one of the reasons i love Joker, that movie didn’t have written box office, but reminded me to those 70s movies that i love even if many here said it was a rip off, people never heard of Taxi Driver before watching Joker, Todd Phillips is not a genius but i applaud him for taking a different approach to a comic book movie. The Batman is taking a right direction too.

    No one was interested in Spielberg’s childhood. EEAAO proved that independent movies can still succeed, but old directors need to adapt and learn what modern audience’s want. They keep trying the same formula over and over. Hollywood is looking out of touch.

    Yeah. Hollywood is looking out of touch. Movie Stars still sell. Bullock had 1 success this year. Same with Roberts. Cruise. Leo. Maybe The Rock. Maybe Joaquin Phoenix. Maybe Lady Gaga

    Yep, you need star power or an IP nowadays.

    Exactly. Now, Spielberg really needs the action movie/remake Bullitt starring Bradley Cooper after several flops at The Box Office

    After so many flops, maybe The Oscars will be a little more Commercial than before: Avatar 2, Top Gun 2, Dune 2, Joker 2, Killers of the Flower Moon, NAPOLEON and GLADIATOR PART II

    Darling, from my experience in my country, I’ve watched:

    Watched EEAAO in a half empty theatre. 2 people walkout during the movie (wasn’t exactly an Oscar movie, but still pretty sad that original movie like this not being celebrated enough outside of cinephiles)

    Watched The Fabelmans in a completely empty theatre. The movie was dropped after 3 days.

    Watched She Said in with literally 6 people in the theatre. 2 walk out during the movie and dropped after 3 days.
