What has happened to American culture? It's a sad, sad situation, if you ask me.
Here is a big example of Hollywood trying to shove its mediocrity down our throats. In spite of critics falling over themselves going crazy over "La La Land," I thought it was terrible... neither lead could sing OR dance, the songs were blah... there were some good scenes... but mostly this film has been ridiculously overrated. I LONGED for Fred & Ginger... Is this what we've come to?
The Oscars have fallen by way of The Grammy's with its embarrassing nominations. “La La Land” got more nominations than “Gone with the Wind,” “Casablanca,” “The Godfather,” “Schindler’s List,” “Return of the King,” “Ben-Hur”. . . I could go on for quite a while because “La La Land” got more nominations than any film ever made, except for "Titanic" and "All About Eve??"
This is indicative of the downfall of American culture. Listen to Paul Joseph Watson - I agree with him - American culture has fallen into a pit of sludge. It's up to Americans to stop supporting these people who call themselves "artists."
The only show on television I've seen lately that is worth watching is The Young Pope - a very creative, controversial, provocative take on Vatican City and the first American pope. Jude Law is marvelous in this role and each episode is a surprise. I like the soundtrack, too - it's fun and entertaining, unique and colourful, especially the opening theme song, taken from Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower."
