Actor Riggan Thomson is most famous for his movie role from over twenty years ago of the comic book superhero Birdman in the blockbuster movie of the same name and its two equally popular sequels.

Now past middle age, Riggan is trying to establish himself as a true artist by writing, directing, starring in and co-producing with his best friend Jake what is his Broadway debut, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

Endless pontifications, crummy editing, presumptuous acting and lousy plot. Put them all together and you have the worst time waster. How this piece of crap ended up with any Oscars is beyond any reasonable person. This film does not deserve ten lines of opinion but since the site requires it I will add that the three people sitting next to me shared this opinion and in fact chimed in with other negative comments most of which are not fit to print.

You should have heard the moans and curses when Birdman kept winning. What do Oscar voters think?
