Argo vs. “Oscars” 1-0


Some movies are just GOOD movies. [1]

Some other movies are made FOR winning the Oscar. [Valia]

The former are the ones you enjoy watching (e.g. Argo). The latter are the ones that say something already said before. Movies you feel like enjoying, can’t be sure if you REALLY liked them though (e.g. Lincoln). And then the critics of the Oscars come and tell you that you were right – you SHOULD have been enjoying the film!

It seems to me like NOT winning the Oscar (or even better not even being nominated for one) is a safe criterion to WATCH a movie!

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
