An Oscar Winning Performance


Hollywood hosted its 90th Academy Awards event last week – a night for the stars to shine. No, I didn’t watch the show, nor did I care to. However, I did see three of the films that were nominated for this year’s Best Picture.

I’ve noticed something about Hollywood in the past few years. Sometimes it seems as if they run out of ideas, therefore they do remakes of older films. A few that come to mind are Death Wish, Murder on the Orient Express, and True Grit.

I haven’t seen all the remakes (the preview alone of True Grit was enough for me). While there are exceptions, I find in most cases the original film is best.

One thought on “An Oscar Winning Performance

  1. That’s so true. Originality is almost a dying art. I’m not against remakes, but there’s been an overabundance of them for years and ones coming out over the next few years. It’s no wonder I focus on independent and foreign films where I review that stuff.
