Why are all Oscar winning movies so boring?

Dont get me wrong I love Entertaining Drama's but the movies that win best picture Academy are boring and uninteresting.For the last few weeks i have been watching movies that won academy for best picture and most of them turned out to be boring and uninteresting with nothing happening.Last night watched slumdog millionaire and the English patient both of them were so boring I couldn't watch both of them past the 1 hour mark.Most of them dont even make the top 5 box office charts.

Re: Why are all oscar winning movies so Boring?

lolol you watched The English Patient.

I actually really like Slumdog Millionaire, but get why others don't.

Watch No Country for Old Men and The Hurt Locker. These are not boring Oscar winners. Don't disagree that some boring shit will win at times though. The Artist? Unwatchable. I thought The King's Speech would be boring as hell too, but it's not. Quite engaging really.

Re: Why are all oscar winning movies so Boring?

I wouldn't say they are all boring...just in most cases there are certain types of flims that will probably win...character dramas or periodic dramas. If you seek big over-the-top action films are comedies then you'll probably not enjoy the Oscar winners.

In the last 20 years such films like The King's Speech, The Hurt Locker, No Country, The Departed, Million Dollar Baby, LOTR , Gladiator, American beauty, Shakespeare in Love (not the best of the year but still v. entertaining), Braveheart, Schindler's List, Unforgiven and Silence of the Lambs all were arguably the best films of the year, or at least very good.

Re: Why are all oscar winning movies so Boring?

The Oscars are all about great acting, well told stories and awesome cinematography. I guess in the modern culture of quick 80 minutes movies full of lots of (to use a wrestle analogy) high spots that these Oscar nominated movies look dull in comparison.

Personally, I'm on your side OP. I've barely seen any movies that have won Oscars because I can't bare them but that's because I'm young and need to be frilled more often when I'm watching a film.

I'm glad that the Oscars exist though, there's a place for that kind of thing and I'm sure that with age, I'll grow to love more Oscar winning movies.

Re: Why are all oscar winning movies so Boring?

did you see the artist? what a piece of shit. Mr.Mister said it right (minus no country for old me), there are plenty good movies. Dramas just usually entail good acting, good story, good script, and other stuff too; but a lot of horror, action, comedy, etc. aren't structured around theses things and aren't even made with consideration for an oscar pick.

I think Avengers might get at least a nomination this year though OP, so cheer up.

I love when movies that aren't out yet get nominated for best picture of the year.

"HEY GUYZ, TRUST US, THIS ONE IS BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU'VE SEEN, OR WILL THIS YEAR. WHY NO, YOU CAN'T SEE IT, LOLOLOLOL.

I did enjoy The Wrestler, No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood and etc. so usually I enjoy these movies, but yeah some of them seem rather dull, Slumdog Millionaire for example.

Well I beg to differ. I mean, it was my best movie of the year but it's a definite top 3.

And lmfao at the thought of Avengers getting anything.

Avengers isn't a musical, drama, or comedy, so it won't get nominated. They're too refined for such things as explosions or superheroes.

I completely get why a popcorn blockbuster flick like the Avengers wouldnt make it, but movies like the original 1978 Superman and TDK at least deserved nominations. If those two films didn't get them, i'll be hard pressed to believe that a superhero movie ever will.
