Injustice: 8/10


Atleast they desist from that idea of 'batman beating superman' i hate seeing batman beating superman

Superman only have one weakness, meanwhile batman beating a mortal, has multiple weakness

Yet they always make him to beat superman...



P.s: in the scene where green-arrow fired kryptonite arrow head at superman, superman used his hand to deflect the arrow, the arrow couldn't even Pierce his hand.

Was him immune to kryptonite or what?
maybe the arrow head wasn't sharp enough.

Not in all cases.

Like in most things, there are bound to be outliers.

Academy Awards is a popularity contest. The more popular you are, the better your chances of winning, directly proportional to the quality/calibre/value of your movies and roles.

At the time of the nominations, they were. Denzel and Whittaker were a big deal in the African-American community back in the day.

I'm not talking about outliers, I'm talking about actors that have won based on merit and not popularity or propaganda.

At the end of the day, it's all about perception, however this doesn't change the fact that the Oscars is the most prestigious award in Hollywood in spite of its many controversies.

Case in point: Adrien Brody won for best actor at age 29 when he was a nobody.

Will Smith was already popular as the Fresh Prince,He collected Grammy Awards under that name plus the fact that Fresh Prince of Bel Air was popular in the 90s undecided, there's no way those guys were more popular than him unless you can prove it.

There's also Tom Cruise who is yet to get one Oscar despite his popularity even Leonardo DiCaprio should have more than 3 Oscars if we use your logic.

I would have to agree with this, somehow Denzel is more respected and recognized in the African-American community when compared to Will Smith.

Lmao. The Oscars has always been more about popularity, wokeness, and influence and less about Merit.

• Marlon Brando won best actor for The Godfather when it should have been Al Pacino.

• Dicaprio winning an Oscar for The Revenant is undeserved. Should have won it earlier with The Wolf of Wallstreet. I guess it's their way of compensating him for the snubbery.

• The Gladiator is a great film, but Russel Crowe performance isn't Oscar worthy, but he won it anyway, IMHO, Joaquin Phoenix is more deserving of the award, but hey, he wasn't a fan favorite, I guess.

I could go on and on. There have been many instances where actors and films won Oscars based on virtue signalling coupled with popularity more than merit.

Nobody is arguing the bold with you, granted that there are many projects/talents whose wins were pushed by propaganda/popularity, we also have other instances that were based on merit. It's a mixture of both!!!

I could also start giving you examples of those that were well deserved.

I've so much to say but little time to say them, this is why I don't like to argue, it's a back and forth that's time consuming and goes nowhere, so I'm gonna say let's agree to disagree.

Popular in the hiphop scene but a hollywood B lister in the 90s, meanwhile, Mazi Forest Whitaker and Denzel Washington (esp Denzel) were A listers in Hollywood in the 90s and mid 2000s. Smith only became an A lister in the early 2000s.

Wrong! Smith became an A-list in the Mid 90s most especially after the success of Bad Boys (1995) and Independence Day (1996).

Bro, you can play a major character in a blockbuster or two and still remain a B lister. A rise to the top is gradual.

And you can also be a leading man while languishing in the C list. Before we even continue this conversation, what's your definition of an A lister?

Well, that's an opinion, it's not written in stone. As far as I'm concern, his A list career started with Ali (2001).

A leading man = A Lister.

Something is wrong with your math. According to your comments, it should be...

A lister = A leading man

A leading man ≠ A lister.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Samuel Jackson was an A lister. In his younger days, he used to lead or co lead, now he supports. He's 70 ish so it's understandable.
