Martin Scorsese Doubles Down On Marvel Movie Criticism
 

 

ďTheaters have become amusement parks. That is all fine and good but donít invade everything else in that sense. That is fine and good for those who enjoy that type of film and, by the way, knowing what goes into them now, I admire what they do. Itís not my kind of thing, it simply is not. Itís creating another kind of audience that thinks cinema is that.Ē

He's not saying anything wrong.

At some point while watching Marvel movies, you have to realize that there's a difference between what they do, and traditional cinema. Somebody should be at least pointing it out.

And honestly, the title is a lie.

He's not even being critical here. He said don't invade everything else.

But as somebody who grew up wanting to work for Marvel, there are times watching those movies where I feel disgusted. There should be people pointing out that there's a difference, and Scorcese is a perfect ambassador for more "traditional" movies.

I understand its not his thing but what abt the mcu doesnt make it cinema?

I guess thats comparable to Nas lookin at soulja boy like hip hop is dead

But is the mcu really that bad, i mean im no movie directing legend but i feel like marvel really set the bar for super hero movies

And if he just dont like super hero movies theres a ton he can hate on b4 he gets to the mcu

It doesn't even try to represent real people with real personalities.

All that damn quipping. This is for starters.

I don't know how to put it into words, but I wish Scorcese would speak more on it. There's something very empty about them.

Most of them feel like TV shows ... the quips have a sitcom-like quality to them, and not in the way of something like Indiana Jones has levity with a funny remark here-or-there...

Right, he's insecure about the future of cinema at this point.

That's why he's speaking out.

18 of the 23 Marvel movies the last 11 years don't come from the same cookie cutter?

Appreciate the feedback, but besides the fact that its fiction, and there superhero flicks, most movies arent representing real people with real personalities, and thats part of the beauty of film makin imo, we still enjoy them

Yeah, but this is different.

These is empty commercial product, and it's being churned out systematically.

They're not saying anything, nor are they trying to. It's pretty disgusting, like a machine. And I don't think it bodes well for cinema as a craft.

I guess it could be said, that the sh*t is basically worthless.

Art traditionally aspires to have a redemptive quality, or to be somehow enriching. This isn't like that.

So when u say empty commercial product i would think then he would feel that same energy for movies like star wars, 007 films, terminator, fast n furious etc etc

I would hope so. I certainly do, generally speaking.

I saw the first "Fast & the Furious." Never again.

The fact that that franchise is still alive and thriving, is a hilariously sad joke. And I know a lot of people agree, but it's not politically correct to say because so many people appear to enjoy those movies.


But yes, that's what I think we're getting at. Empty, soulless, commercial consumer vehicles.

They have their place, but don't usurp the movie market.

Seriously it's pretty difficult to make a movie that appeals to 2/3s of the worlds population.

I'd love to see Martin do better...

Is a Pagani Zonda really a better car than a Honda Accord? It depends on the context.
