>And yet, smart people are out here campaigning for this poor little rich kid to win an Oscar because he never won. Look up “perspective.” Blinded, you all are, and you lack the ability to be sharp critics.
Well, /tv/? How can you say a privileged cis white male shitlord like DiCaprio gave an oscar-worthy performance?
Is that not exactly what the Leo Oscar meme is though? Nobody lists off all the great performances that have been snubbed unduly, they just say "How has he NOT won yet?" as if its owed and not earned
Can't say if he actually deserves one here or not since I haven't seen it but the meme itself is ridiculous
>Thank you. Almost nobody brings up the lack of representation of Bears at the Academy awards. Did you know that, as it stands, there have been over 1700 acting nominations in the history of the awards and only 23 have gone to Bears(Meryl Streep, Claude Rains).
>Bill A. Bear
Maybe this is just a joke article you guys
>Well, /tv/? How can you say a privileged cis white male shitlord like DiCaprio gave an oscar-worthy performance?
Because I didn't take his sexual preference race or sex into the equation and instead I judged it by his performance and strength of the material.
>Bill A. Bear
>A bear reviews The Revenant
>His character litchrally spends the entire two-plus hours yelling, crawling, falling over a cliff, yelling, sleeping in animal carcass, pillaging, bleeding profusely from every pore, yelling, riding a horse, making fire, being carried around gorgeous landscapes and being attacked by a mama bear twice.
Was this woman paid for this
>campaigning for this poor little rich kid
are they saying Leo doesn't deserve an Oscar because of his white privilege?
I don't even know what to say.
Above all else, all the SJW baiting and racism/sexism/bullshit arguing that goes on, I just wish that film were something that could go without being tainted by these fucking retards. How could any honest lover of actual film not at the very least enjoy The Revenant and DiCaprio's performance? I understand it's not a perfect film. I understand that a film like this could maybe miss the mark when it comes to a younger generation that has been conditioned to expect something else from their movies, whether it be for the better or worse. But how can you sit back and fire off an article about how "Leo doesn't deserve an Oscar and if you think otherwise, you're not a sharp critic?"
This tells me that people, not just any people but people who get paid to write about film and have their voices be heard by countless others, are walking into a movie theater with their arms crossed and a snide "Oh, this is terrible" mentality instead of just watching and embracing the movie. Why has it gotten to this point? Nobody cares about the art form anymore. Nobody genuinely likes anything. Critics aren't critics, they're fanboys and kids that never really immersed themselves in any legitimate cinema. Shitpost away at me and greentext me to shit but I am literally depressed by the amount of people bashing this movie for no reason other than wanting to be seen as smarter than everybody else.
As someone who wants to be a filmmaker, this makes me think otherwise. Maybe I should just try to write novels instead.
Same. I don't take this kind of article seriously anymore, because whoever wrote it has never actually watched a film (I mean like really sat down and analyzed it). They don't review the film, they review the social landscape surrounding it.
I'm probably just spouting bullshit, but what I'm trying to say is I agree with you.
