Who cares about the Academy Awards? Certainly not me. I have found almost no mainstream films in the last 5 years that appeal to me.
Case in point: I watched Sideways earlier this month while flying home from Europe. I felt no sympathy for either of the pathetic characters, and I could barely focus on the movie.
And this is the best of what’s out there. Everything else is even worse.
Don’t think that I’m just a snob. I watch plenty of mainstream TV shows. As I’ve written before, I’m rather addicted to The Amazing Race, Survivor, and The Apprentice. There’s plenty of TV entertainment that interests me, but virtually nothing in the movie theaters or on DVD.
Another reason why I love TiVo.
