Don´t let anybody fool you on how awarded the film has been
One of the most common ways to identify how boring a film can be is when someone you know urges you to watch a certain film with the argument of the awards collected so far by it.
Make no mistakes person, the awards respond to strictly artistic matters and it has nothing to do with the plot or the characters in the film.
With that in mind, so far some of you will have noticed that you are not film critics and you don´t give a chocolate about the intrigues of filmmaking.
Most of us, just want to go to a theater, sit and enjoy a good movie. To us, a good movie means a good story, good scenes, good actors, and good music.
If you are one the few, with an enhanced taste for artistic, intellectual and meaningful films, you are reading the wrong opinion.
Most of my greatest deceptions attending to a theater to enjoy a movie was paying attention to those people with self-believed fancy taste in films.
Never trust the “award card” to accept a recommendation to watch a movie.
Always check first what kind of award was granted to the film
If you do decide to accept the “award card” check first what was it.
A few days ago, some approached me and convinced me to watch “The Darkest Hour” with the “award card”.
Awful mistake, didn´t check first, but now it makes sense that the awards this film received at the Oscars were for “Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role” and “Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling”.
Even though Gary Oldman´s acting showed off, the movie was so slow I had to see it twice (because I fell asleep and I never do that) and the color of the film was so dreary, I wouldn’t think about doing the same to another person.
Perhaps, if you are a hairstylist or a makeup artist you shouldn´t miss it because you hardly recognize Gary Oldman, but not for the wrong reasons because the makeup was outstanding and his acting something else, it´s just not a great film.
Finally, learn to identify people and their tastes in films to prevent disastrous visits to the cinema.
