Flix66 - I sometimes feel like Academy Award nominated films do not necessarily appeal to the masses. Some require a lot of thinking. Some require a lot of emotional commitment. Often times only critics and film students truly appreciate and even bother to watch these “buzzed about” movies at the actual theater. And they probably discuss the various plots and character development over coffee afterwards. Many of us wait until the winner is announced to decide if our brains are prepared or even willing to venture down the thinking path versus the mindless path before we make a decision to pay our $10 to be entertained.
