When Oscar season comes around I'm always pretty uninterested in most of the nominees but I always end up having to watch a few anyway.

I just saw Manchester By the Sea and... wow.  It was exactly what I expected.  Fine from a technical standpoint, not all that well put together in my opinion but definitely your classic Accomplished look-how-good movie, and so very, very boring.  I swear the same thing happens every couple of years.  Some drab, depressing movie gets made about a white guy who has a depression beard and acts like a jerk, and the academy flaps around like, "So innovative!"  And it's just not?

That said, I'd be interested to hear what anyone who liked it thought was good about it.  I do understand that a movie can be good without being enjoyable to watch, but this movie just wasn't saying anything new.
