I assign great books and popular books in my classes. The running joke is that Hollywood doesn't read much. Sure they've discovered Austen, but there is an ocean of texts waiting for treatment and tweaking out there. It boggles the mind that even three transformers movies were made.

The statement "the bad men are gone" is as sadly naive as "Trump finally said all the stupid things".

Came here to say this. When it comes to perverts in Hollywood, I'm thinking "Hydra". Get rid of a dozen of them, another two dozen will take their place. They just might be more discrete about it than their predecessors.

As for bad movies, I'm a movie buff and of the movies nominated for the bigger awards, I've only seen "Get Out" and that was on cable. The old racist guy in TFA was right when he said it wasn't an "Oscar" movie. Of course, I actually watched it before coming to that conclusion.

The author seems incredible gullible and naive.   Anyone who learns all of their life lessons from movies should probably stop watching them. The last thing we need in film is a moral code. I love movies that cast women in leading roles with complex characters (which we do need more of)...but I also have no problem with a James Bond movie, either. The key is to expand the former, not get rid of the latter.

Saoirse Ronan is one of my favorite actresses, but Lady Bird? It was a cute little movie. It does not deserve Best Picture. Ingrid Goes West was so much more entertaining IMHO.

And thus, we enter the era of the paid professional whiner... Jesus, every third story nowadays is all about how all of these great strides are being made in one area or another, but whoever the author is, IT. JUST. ISN'T. ENOUGH.

And it never will be. So STFU.

It just occurred to me: given the current popularity of superhero movies, this would be a perfect time for a studio to make a movie out of Carrie Vaughn's After The Golden Age.  It's about a woman who's the daughter of two superheroes, but who has no superpowers of her own.  Desperate to get out from under their shadow, she leaves home and becomes a forensic accountant, but when her parents' arch-enemy is finally arrested and put on trial, she gets hired by the prosecution to help build the case against him.

Diversity is not what's hurtling Black Panther towards a billion dollar box office take.  It's going to rake in over $1 billion because it's just a good farking movie. Hollywood just needs to make better movies.  I don't watch a movie because it has the appropriate proportion of minorities in it. I watch a movie because it has actors and actresses I like; whether it's Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Samuel L Jackson or Jennifer Lawrence.
As far as lessons learned from movies and TV, I watched The Smurfs growing up. Never once did I think that women were subservient and wore only high heels. And cheesy 80s movies did not shape my behavior in pursuing women. Give me a farking break. It was entertainment. Plenty of people watch these movies/TV shows and do not develop into predatory pieces of shiat. This is the same flawed reasoning as blaming video games and porn for mass shootings (I played violent video games growing up and I've never murdered anyone, nor have any of my high school friends).
What a lazy, shiatty article. Save the Twitter outrage for Twitter.

Newspaper op-eds shouldn't be telling artists how to create their art.

Let's leave that up to the artists, please, and we'll let the free market decide what is good and what is bad, and what deserves to make lots of money.

That is the ultimate barometer of worthiness and pop culture canon. Not pretentious columnists who want to destroy thousands of years of built-up social morality and civilization and time-honored storytelling tropes for the sake of their personal feelings.

I thought there were like six of those transformers movies. I wasn't really keeping track and they all looked like the same stupid trash, so i really have no idea how many there are but it's possible they are so bad it seems like there's twice as many.

Reading your post, I realized that I couldn't remember how many Transformers movies there were off the top of my head, so I looked it up.  There are five, and a spinoff called "Bumblebee: The Movie" is due this year.

That's like the Resident Evil, Pirates, Underworld...etc franchises. They don't number them and they all look alike so you don't know how many there are and even if you wanted to watch them you have to look at the dates to know the order. Luckily I don't want to watch them.

I need to brush up on what a movie producer does. How much input do they have? I always thought they just provided the money and chose the director, then the director is the boss or project manager.  Miramax / Weinstein Co. produced some excellent movies! Who's going to replace them?

Somebody posted an equation in here once about making movies movies and I forget the details but the gist was that if a movie can make money AND be good then that's just a happy coincidence as long as it makes money. Add the foreign markets and we're screwed. Not that Chinese audiences can't appreciate a good movie but loud noises and CGI are easier for Hollywood to translate.

I enjoyed Get Out, and I believe it falls short for a Best Picture Oscar as well. Hollywood generally doesn't give a damn about thrillers (Silence of the Lambs was 25 effing years ago) unless it was done by big bankable stars. My guess is that Three Billboards gets the win in the category of "the limited release movie that fewer than 100k people saw that we short-list for best picture because it makes us feel better about ourselves in fart-sniffing Hollywood".

Get Out deserves original screenplay though hands down.

It depends on the producer. Usually what you said is the case but since he's the money, he could be on set every day if he wanted to, meddling with the directer and writer. I doubt that's the case with directors like Tarantino though. And Tarantino doesn't need Weinstein to get a movie made anymore.

Really? I don't know what I expected from it but I just wasn't impressed by it. I don't know much about Three Billboards but it looks like a quirky Fargo type movie so it's a good bet for Best Picture.

One thing I'd bet my middle nut on is Gary Oldman though. Motherfarker's a chameleon in a town where actors basically play themselves.

From makeover shows, I learned that I was ugly. From romantic comedies, I learned that stalking means he loves you and persistence means he earned you - and also that I was ugly. From Disney movies, I learned that if I made my waist small enough (maybe with the help of a witch), a man or large hog-bear might marry me, and that's where my story would end. "The Smurfs" taught me that boys can have distinct personalities, like being smart or grumpy, and girls can have only one (that personality is "high heels"). From "The Breakfast Club," I learned that rage and degradation are the selling points of an alluring bad boy, not the red flags of an abuser. From pretty much all media, I learned that complicated women are "crazy" and complicated men are geniuses.

The Bumblebee spin off should deal with how he was born a VW but always felt like a Chevy inside. So eventually he had the surgery to change brand/model. The film can be a character study about a Trans Transformer and the struggles that go along with that. Maybe get Almodóvar to direct. He does these kinds of characters well.

It's an odd joke since many of the most popular and/or critically successful films and television shows of the past 5-10 years are from print media, and the YA genre basically has had every popular YA book since the turn of the century show up on screen and another big one showing up this year(Ready Player One)

To a degree, yes.  Still producing and receiving recognition for things after the fact I'm not too fond of.  A good movie is a good movie, but certain people shouldn't be making those good movies once their crimes are disclosed.
