    Quick question for everyone and you cant select both. Which movies do you prefer watching: A movie that is so well acted by the actors that most of them will be nominated for awards or a movie that is made to entertain you...like an arnold schwarzenegger movie

    Definitely the 1st.
    No matter how much entertaining the movie can be, it won't entertain me if there are bad actors who bring a faked entertainment.

    I'd rather watch a movie with great acting and a good story. To me that's more entertaining than a movie that is "made to entertain you" with over the top action scenes.

    I agree with EllyDicious.

    Some of my favourite movies are the ones with fine acting (The Godfather, The Wrestler etc). I do like entertaining movies, but given a choice I'd go with Good Acting.

    Acting easily. That doesn't mean I can't switch off my brain off and enjoy some explosions but it's definitely a different type of enjoyment. Well acted films will always be a more satisfying experience all round for me. Not to mention the fact that bad acting can kill films that could've been alright if they were handled better.

    To be honest with you I rather watch a movie that will entertain me rather then seeing good actors. Dont get me wrong I do enjoy a beautifully acted movie but I dont always enjoy those type of movies. I know if I'm going to see an entertaining movie I wont leave disappointed. I love JCVD, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone movies, and you cant get worse then those 3 guys lol.

    I like good acting because it entertains me. So, I'm really not sure what to say here. If I'm not entertained, it's not good acting.

    Echoes hit it right on the head.

    A movie with a good script and good acting will always beat even the best of entertaining popcorn movies.

    Maybe it should've been, "Good Acting Vs Special Effects and Stunts". That's pretty much how I interpreted it.

    Good acting all the way... To me, if you can't act, the film isn't worth watching.
