He needs a change of pace.

Play a real bad guy. I know early in his career he said he only plays good because he wants to be a positive black role model but it's time to flip that switch.

Will as a bad guy you want to hate will win him his first Oscar

You thought Focus and Concussion were “weak” and “pointless oscar bait” but Bright was good?

And what does DC and MCU have to do with anything? The only good Black actors are the ones who work with Marvel? Do you only watch superhero movies or something? You sound slow bruh

Besides, Will Smith is a higher star than Ben Affleck. Will Smith was the highest grossing actor in Hollywood and has been nominated for his acting abilities.

Argo won for best PRODUCED movie. Affleck didn’t even get nominated for Best Director that year, which tells you something

I need this broken down for me please.
The n*gga only watches superhero movies

Mahershala Ali? No love for Chadwick Boseman? Daniel Boyega?

Stephan Beal and Denzel Washington’s son gave some good performances this year

If we go beyond “A-list” then Lakeith Stanfield and Daveed Diggs k*lled it this year

But if you only watch Superhero movies then you probably didnt see too many of those performances

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
But with so much content out with no way of watching/playing it all, those reviews help customers weed out what may possibly be a waste of time for them.

For me personally, having a full time job and watching my two small children solo in the evenings while my wife works, I don't have the time and resources I once did in my early 20s to buy games or movies blindly. Seriously, when I was 20, I would run to Gamestop or to a local DVD shop and buy movies and games simply based on the box art. If the game or movie was trash, I just cut my losses and was right back in the spot the following week.

Nowadays, if I waste money on a game or movie that turned out to be trash, I'm kicking myself because that's money that could have went to diapers, milk, bread, something. Game companies especially used to drop demos religiously. Most of them have stopped doing that. You might see a beta here or there, but those are timed, and if you missed the window, you have no other way to try the game before you buy other than Redbox.

A Bad Boys 3 would put a frame around that winner circle. Good film actors don't get old its a big difference between superstars and true Hollywood. Still ain't seen Collateral Beauty yet though

Will Smith could have been like Tom Cruise sci fi/action route and been super successful. But instead, he went the tryhard oscar route. He turned down a bunch of good roles.

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 donít say...

Focus was cool Bright was cool but had a predictable ending. suicide Squad was terrible on many levels, none having to do with WIll Smith and all his action scenes were great. Concussion was trash because most movies like those are trash. dont understand the point of the thread

Nah, he just needs to pick better roles. Every big name goes through a down period.

As for creativity, he's expressing it via YouTube and IG.

Gtfoh with this nonsense. Dude has an amazing family, more money than he could ever possibly spend in 5 lifetimes, and is just enjoying his life. Just take one look at his YouTube channel and you can see just how much fun he's having. You really think he gives a sh*t about movie roles anymore?

Man, actors got it easy when they're big time. Creative rut? All you gotta do is pick the right project to work on.

It ain't like writers, musicians, painters/visual artist that gotta create a whole life from scratch.

I have very little sympathy for high level actors, boys get hella gwop. Yes, I know acting isn't easy and takes talent, but at Will Smith level; n*gga should know what a hit or miss is from reading the script.

Calling Concussion bait takes away from how powerful the movie was and how good The acting (Particularly his acting) was in the film. That sh*t exposed how the NFL really doesnt care about players and is working with the government and FBI to constantly cover things up that go wrong in the league. The fu*king ruined that doctors entire legacy and forced him to leave his field and the state for discovering what he discovered (Something that ended up already knowing). Anyways Chill on Will dude is about to be the Genie from alladin and Play Obama..Let him cook
