Is Will Smith in a Creative Rut?
 

 
Start off by saying Iím a Will Smith fan but itís like the past 4-5 years, his movies havenít hit.

His last dope movie was MIB3 in 2013. Since then itís been Concussion, Focus, Bright, suicide Squad.

Focus was weak
Concussion was pointless Oscar bait
Bright was really dope
suicide Squad was weak

Will hit harder in the late 2000s with Happyness, Hancock, I Am Legend etc. all classic Will flicks.

Btw, he went the DC route and hasnít made a MCU flick yet. Ben Affleck is the only A List legend in the DCU but heís got quality films like Gone Girl, The Accountant, Argo and The Town as well as the crap DC flops so itís a balance somewhat.

Idk itís like Sam L Jackson and MBJ are the two Black male A Listers putting out High Quality work. I think Will is losing it.

What do yíall think?

You liked Bright but thought Focus was weak?

Nah..

Other than that I agree, he should go for a indie film and see if the creatives flow on a lower level can help.

Every mega star has their peaks and valleys. Will is one hit away from the whole industry being on his nuts again. I'm curious to see what the Gemini Man movie looks like when the trailer drops.

And I think he's handling his slump pretty well compared to Johnny Depp now or Tom Cruise a few years ago. His transition to a social media personality and Jada's talk show were smart moves.

This is what i don’t understand about him. He could be in youtube videos and is even on the most disliked youtube video ever ‘that rewind bs’ and be on ig with that too positive he must be hiding some sh*t attitude and be in all these wack a*s movie but he couldn’t be in the new men in black or independence day? That movie he did with his son/daughter was horrible too

Will always picked bad movies. He's no Daniel day Lewis when it comes to movie selection. Even most of his best sh*t is average at best

True. He kinda fell off with his movies. Used to be all home runs back to back.

everybody fall off
not really feeling his IG or youtube videos either, they come off as corny
but I'm not going to hate, he's spreading positivity instead of acting like he's still 20 and ignorant like a lot of celebrities do

All this talk about hits. Not 1 word about a top 3 performance from him in Seven Pounds. i honestly don't care if some random group of people on a site rate him high or he sells at box office. I just want dope writing and a great performance.

It be weird when dudes be talking about what Metacritic, Rotten Tomatoes, or whatever critic forum said. Some of yall really put stock in these ratings of people that convinced you that they know more or are more skeptical than you.

This sh*t is funny. The first week a game drop, "what are the reviews". Same for a movie, "how much will it sell". If people stepped back, they'd understand that these are marketing tools.

"Support the creatives" - created by the same people who don't fairly pay creatives

"mag and website reviews" - other people's opinions that for some reason, people value or care for more than their own

"award shows" - Ratings scam. They pick who they think can get them the best ratings. If it's not an indie, where Hollywood is trying to push a certain director or actor into the limelight, it's a cringe-worthy attempt at "diversity" .

"sales" - This is the best 1. A lot of people paid for it, so it has to be good or worth a try.

All of these are psychologically based on the fact that some either can't form their own opinion or don't have confidence in their taste. Just some weak minded sh*t and it's been around for a long time. Some people even got to look at social media b4 they form their opinion on the simplest things like music

Will isnt that young charming charismatic dude that hollywood loves anymore they passed that to mbj. Hollywood only allows one black male to dominate at a time and they like them young. . I noticed will hasnt had a hit movie years ago but i knew it was hollywoods agenda being pushed. Mbj to me isnt that great of an actor hes ok but his acting serms forced sometimr and i dnt look at him like a true black guy .

Focus wasn’t bad at all.
suicide Squad had a bad script but it wasn’t due to him acting bad.
Agreed, concussion was bait.
Bright seemed really outta pocket but Twitter & Netflix reviews helped that film. Again, wasn’t bad.
MIB3 yes, not watching, but that’s nostalgia.

He ain’t Denzel at acting or choosing, but I can’t shame the man.

The major difference between Will and Denzel is that Denzel is signed to Sony.
Having a studio contract means you get a better pick of scripts when the studio buys or options them.
