The Oscar nominated movie Get Out has a plot of people stealing other people's bodies so they could live longer.
Although this was probably done everywhere to death, I can't help but compare it to The Skeleton Key which was a movie starring Kate Hudson that depicted quite the same plot, with more mystery, less desperation for political correctness and a more realistic ending.
The Skeleton Key differs in one key aspect from Get out, though. Get out bases these criminal changes of bodies in science, while The Skeleton Key bases them in voodoo - which is also a lot more believable than science being able to do this...
If a movie is going to go for a fictional plot, why try to involve science in a completely incredible - meaning hard to believe - way?
The whole point of this article is to try to achieve some perspective on the kinds of movies nominated for Oscars this year, and frankly, the last few... Why is it that this kind of a movie wouldn't be considered for an Oscar in a million years, a few years back, but now we praise it as a masterpiece worthy to stand next to Titanic?!
With a few really good movies nominated for the Oscars, there are bound to be a few more which have no business being nominated for that distinguished Academy Award.
But...it seems political correctness and desperation to look 'woke' have started changing even those respected institutions.
I say change it in a way where you give more chances, roles, opportunities to minorities or the oppressed, not nominating them for Oscars - because that's the least you (the Hollywood community and the Academy) can do!
