keep saying that ever since Drake beat Meek Mill sh*t is a bizarro world.

If yall wouldve told me 10 years ago that Martin Scorsese would be taking flak for his opinion on comic book movies I wouldnt believe it.
Drake beat Meek fair & square with Back 2 Back

90% of comic book movies back when Scorsese tried them being badly executed does not mean that the other 10% that actually happen to be excellent cinema do not exist

a suburban (jewish)child actor from canada beats a philly cat who honed his craft on the streets of philly and came up the ranks. He wins the battle with a diss song about the street cat who is fu*king one of the most wanted women in entertainment, while it was revealed he was urinated on, and slapped up by Diddy. So, im done with who won, I get Drake won. Bizarre to me.

The point was that Scorsese is a well renowned director, whose credentials are literally inarguable. So if in his professional opinion he doesnt respect comic book movies as much as they are successful, than he has earned that right. He even said though they are well done. But I feel he is correct that they arent traditional cinema, even though they are done well, and make a sh*tload of money.

I saw on social media after MS comments alot of, he was hating, they getting money regardless and then some even started to downplay his credentials.

A bunch of "is that your tour or your girls tour" disses(which is literally the softest diss line that people love of all time).

Dont really want to relive the Drake/meek thing, but the world is alot of opposite of what it was since then, and Im just gonna use that as the barometer as to when sh*t went real upside down.

I appreciate how respectful everyone is being with each other.

There is no reason for all these successful people to f*ght with each other. And they aren't. Scorsese did say they were well made.

Same sh*t happens in hip hop.

You got your Drakes and you got your Nas.

They're both hip-hop and they're both entertaining and you shouldn't compare the two against each other. They both have their own lanes in the hip-hop world just like how Marvel films have their own lane and Scorsese films have their own lane in the cinema world. They're both films and they're both entertaining and you shouldn't' compare the two against each other.

I don't even see what the issue is. The MCU is what 23 movies deep now? Out of 23 movies Black Panther is the only one that even comes close to "trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being."

So in the 48 hours of runtime. Maybe 2 hours of it isn't surface level drama?
Winter soldier did that waaay better than black panther bro.

the reason why a majority of marvel films are so basic is cause Disney wants them to pass Chinese censorship.... that's why they all follow the same themes and structures... since China is the biggest film watching markets in the world... ...it's all business to Disney
United States is the biggest movie market tho

Lol, you wrote all that just to fuss about soft a*s fabricated Drake beating Meek?!
My man, Drake won because he wrote the BETTER DISS RECORDS period!
Y’all really gotta just shake that off yo! Lol

As for Scorcese, who cares if he ain’t feeling them in a traditional sense? They movies do good because they are cool movies and some of them are dope movies period. Marvel makes comic books and are making dope films (sometimes) of their dope version of literary works...lol, why would they worry or care about Hollywood’s and cinemas “traditional” way of making things. I can see why he doesn’t dig it, but in all actuality when it comes to art and cinema...who IS Scorcese? He pushed and boundaries too, he should know that eventually it would be something else that would come along that he wouldn’t agree with. It’s the cycle yo

Now, the people blaming Comic movies on why Hollywood is sh*t and has been for years are delusional...stop money grabbing, rebooting, and force feeding all these bullsh*t agenda movies and green light the dope film ideas and sh*t would turn around...Hollywood’s problem is the fact it’s racist as fu*k and s*xist as hell...that has Nothing to do with comic movies.

This is the thread where the few people who donít like comic book movies unite like Voltron. Yíall are corny. How many people got emotional during The Godfather? How many people got emotional during Goodfellas? How many people got emotional when Thanos got the soul stone and then told baby Gamorra it cost him everything? Comic book movies hit the same ques as other movies. Sometimes in better ways. Plus comic book movies arenít reserved for a specific audience. Anyone can watch/enjoy. Thereís no youíre too young/old to be watching this.
Nah fu*k all that

The feeling of life hit home harder than anything in a marvel movie

We not f*ghting aliens in real life

We f*ghting racism mass incarceration
And all kinda other bullsh*t

The feel is different my brother

But I agree with both cuz I see a bigger picture

n*ggas need to let their mind be creative

Art should be how ever the artist wanted the art to be

You canít agree with both. One position says marvel isnít cinema the other says it is.

Comparing a movie about racial tension to a comic book movie is utter foolishness. Comic book movies are fantasy pieces that have enough reality to keep the film grounded. Their purpose is to create escape and enjoyment. Thatís not the purpose of a movie that confronts racism. Escape and enjoyment donít invalidate the movie or the story. Scorsese was on some snobbish bitter bullsh*t. Like gangster flicks are inherently better than comic book movies.

I think the whole argument is stupid if you can't be creative enough to make a movie to Garner attention of the masses like super hero movies its you not them.

Sambo L Jackson is the most one dimensional actor in Hollywood he has no dignity he will star in those racist Tarintino films and wonít say a damn thing.
The joker exposed the marvel universe as the hollow empty shell that it is.
