Block­busters are dam­ag­ing Hol­ly­wood: Ray Liotta

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

The Good­fel­las ac­tor Ray Liotta (right) has crit­i­cised Hol­ly­wood’s fo­cus on tent­pole movies ar­gu­ing that stu­dios are mak­ing less and less great films. The 61-year-old ac­tor said that he thinks un­de­serv­ing movies now win Acad­emy Awards - be­cause there’s not enough com­pe­ti­tion, re­ported Dig­i­tal Spy. “Cinema is be­com­ing more and more about tent­pole movies. There’s a few good movies, but they’ve be­come less and less. And now for some crazy rea­son, they nom­i­nate 10 pic­tures for Best Pic­ture at the Acad­emy Awards. I’m like, re­ally, how many were re­ally Os­car­wor­thy? Maybe three, if that?” he said.

“They just aren’t mak­ing enough of what they used to do. They seem like they’re more anx­ious to spend USD 250 mil­lion on one tent­pole movie than make 20 movies for USD 10 mil­lion.”
