So many of us now have better image and audio in our homes than what you can experience in a theatre. This has pushed the envelope for better set & sound design as well as image quality. Clearly each of us has our own opinion on what we find interesting or entertaining.
Lets review last nights Oscars. What did you like about the show?
Did the issues about diversity get addressed, or is this an attempt by the pampered elite to stay culturally relevant? How do they make sure the right films or people get recognized based on a proportional contribution?
How do you think Chris Rock did in hosting the Oscars? Did he also fall into the stereotype of racial slur?
What did you think about the environmental message Leonardo DiCaprio gave in his acceptance speech?
Actor Mark Ruffalo has declared certain questions off limits to the media, regarding the sincerity of the actors who advocate a low carbon footprint.

Many attendees were moved by Lady Gagas song from Spotlight.

High profile Hollywood power players accused of being paedophiles, include Bryan Singer.
Molestation Scandal: Hollywood’s Child Sex Abuse Coverup.
In a recent (2016) movie role, “Dirty Grandpa“, Robert De Niro plays a lecherous former Army Lieutenant-Colonel, a despicable grandfather, for comedic effect. Quite a different message than that of the Academy award winner, Spotlight.
