Martin Scorsese Doesn't Think Marvel Movies Are Cinema
 

 

“I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

He doesn't believe that they're Oscar worthy either.

I agree.

MARVE

I mean, you’d think a movie with a $400milli budget have some real a*s CGI.

I agree...would fast and furious win an oscar for best film? That doesnt mean Marvel doesnt have characters capable of pulling it off...but they are action ride alongs

Because of their episodic nature, he’s technically not wrong... That’s why I’m glad Batman is breaking off the DCEU. I find these movies entertaining, but there is something missing from most of them because the focus on world building and setting up other movies rather than being a self-contained story.

I agree and I didn’t hate the mcu was pretty indifferent but impressed how that all started from thAt iron man film. Go back and watch that it’s so different in tone. Same for the conjuring 7 or 8 aka annabelle the first conjuring was soooo good and even had the weird chick from all those 90s horrors. I finally watched annabelle 3 and it felt like a true episode of goosebumps and then they throw in the next hints at villians they are like themeparks or elaborate tv shows just adding a new piece or two every year.

I get what he's saying

The Marvel movies are good. None are bad really.

But none had a lasting impact on me or hit me on a personal level.

Trust me, he don’t think highly of dc films either. There just not worth bringing up cause their not as successful as Marvel. Pretentious filmmakers hate Marvel films cause studios put bigger budgets into Super hero genre films and films that he creates doesn’t garner enough attention for big studios to push them heavily anymore. Hate the game not the player.

Scorsese is my favorite director , but Just take it with a grain of salt. Not all things are made for everyone. Those movies are so far from what he does , he just cant relate. But that doesnt mean the marvel movies arent great, i can enjoy an avengers movie just as much as Inglorious basterds.

Gangs of New York budget... $100M
The Aviator budget... $110M
The Departed budget... $90M
Shutter Island budget... $80M
Hugo budget... $160M
The Wolf of Wall Street budget... $100M
Silence budget... $60M
The Irishman... $140M

Scorsese getting all the budget he needs. Youíre delusional if you think he has any reason to be bitter. Only one movie that lost money in 20 years... Come on now... If Scorsese didnít think what he thinks, he wouldíve tried making a big budget spectacle by now, and guaranteed a big studio would give him the money he needs for it. He was about to produce Joker, but didnít have time for it.

Lies... No time context. And this is old news.

What yall maybe forgetting is the B-list turned now Alist actors besides 2 Matt Damon n Leo. Claimed they wouldnt even think about doing any comic book movies in some ways, like what Martin is saying.

THE CROW, Judge Dredd, TNMNT 1, The Mask, Blade, Watchmen, Akira, Spiderman 1, IronMan 1. Hellboy 1, Men in Black 1. All had emotional scale. Really good plots. Character development and to this day out of those i listed

I bet Martin could never dare approach The Crow or Watchmen. But again...the Mext M.Scor movie that will drop will fit right in with every other film. No expanding or creating anything new at all.

But again... I like Matins movies. But he isnt changing his schtick either. Same type casts.

Yall wanna not say it. But this is part of nepotism by him amd Hollywood. Hence why the same things comes to the surface.

A huge lacl of deversity. All im saying it according to Martin only wites bang guns, rob, become politicians, legendary hitmen and gang bangrs.

But yall will tell it like his catalog is some expansive shyt. He has clasics. But they all fit in a narrow space.

How about Martin trying out someone other than a cast of prodominantly wites.

I got Scorsese right behind Spielberg as greatest director ever.
He’s made multiple movies that are better than any Marvel movie ever made.
I can’t lie though, the way Marvel did those 22 or 23 films was fantastic.
Different strokes for different folks.

Yawn. If marvel movies weren’t popular and successful these guys would have nothing to say. I love Marty but couldn’t care less about his opinion on blockbuster cinema, the same way I wouldn’t care about james gunn’s review of the irishman

To say avengers, infinity war and endgame are not incredible fears of cinema is fu*king stupid, no matter who is saying it

Endgame is not an incredible feat of cinema, that script was on a 5th grade level at best.
