    We care when characters in Scorsese’s movies act violently and so on. Whereas the Avengers killing people at the start of Age of ultron is glossed over. Thor claims to have killed 1000 peopland he is...
  2. It's the job of any movie to be as good as it can...

    It's the job of any movie to be as good as it can be. If you are trying to create a new genre, the bar is a little higher. I mean look at videogames where demand and burden of expectations by gamers...
  3. Mark Waid will have you believe it's been going...

    Mark Waid will have you believe it's been going for some time since the '80s or so with WB and DC's management not giving Superman as much as Batman, albeit Supes still got more than other DC...
  4. Conway's original Clone Saga is a great story...

    Conway's original Clone Saga is a great story that was criminally misunderstood and misappropriated in the '90s by Terry Kavanagh and others.

    If I were to name best writers on Spider-Man overall...
  5. That's not the large critical opinion on Melies....

    That's not the large critical opinion on Melies. Unless you can talk about specific movies and so on, this makes no sense.

    Scorsese never knocked the MCU for being "spectacle". In fact the word...

    JMS' run has multiple parts:

    Part 1 - The 38 issues with JRJR from ASM (Vol.2) #30-58, then ASM (Vol.1 original numbering)#500-508.

    Interval - Sins' Past (ASM#509-512).

    Part 2 - Spider-Man...

    Yeah. A TV adaptation's main goal is to avoid going out with Season 1, so they have to find ways to get viewers engaged and not just assume they have a sure hit on hands, so they pay attention to...

    Again, he has done that multiple times.



    He's done that throughout his career.



    Yeah but by then it would have enough of a hold on distribution to make it the only thing. That's what...

    "I am not a corporation; I am an independent producer."
    -- Georges Méliès.

  10. People work hard on every movie. That's never...

    People work hard on every movie. That's never come in the way of making criticism before. I mean Michael Bay works hard but people don't hold back criticizing him or you know Zack Snyder's movies....

    So what is your opinion on Scorsese’s criticism of the MCU
  12. Melies was already finished when DWG started out...

    Melies was already finished when DWG started out and well before birth of a nation made him renowned. Stroheim didn’t make it until 1919.

    Melies contemporaries were the Lumieres, Louis Feuillade,...
  13. Melies actually created a whole bunch of films....

    Melies actually created a whole bunch of films. Including docudramas. He made documentary recreations of events like the Dreyfus affair which was incredibly bold for him to have done so given the...
  14. That's astute. The MCU creates safe movies that...

    That's astute. The MCU creates safe movies that are sure-sells, and the audience is conditioned that these movies are sure-buys.

    They're actually already buying the lawn and erecting the wall.

    There's this notion that Scorsese was the MCU-equivalent to the Old Hollywood pioneers and so on. If that's true then Scorsese's a hypocrite for slamming the MCU. Fortunately it's not true.

    The...
  17. Stern's take on Vulture definitely inspired...

    Stern's take on Vulture definitely inspired Michael Keaton's take in Homecoming. There's even an allusion there about Bestman, which is the name of the dude who screwed Vulture over. And again, if...
  18. I never said the MCU movies aren't well-made. I...

    I never said the MCU movies aren't well-made. I said that the movies are kind of rigid and standardized in terms of staging of action scenes, lighting and as Willem Dafoe said, they are overshot,...
  19. If you want to be fair to the MCU shouldn't the...

    If you want to be fair to the MCU shouldn't the comparison be between The Departed (a self-admittedly commercial police thriller that's also a remake of a foreign movie) and the MCU? I mean The...
  20. This is equivalent to saying that...

    This is equivalent to saying that African-American film-makers need to cast white leads when they make movies about characters in the 'hood. Would you say this about Spike Lee's films or Ryan...
  21. A cast that includes actors of such high quality...

    A cast that includes actors of such high quality as Liotta, DeNiro, Pesci, Paul Sorvino, Lorraine Bracco among others is not, never was, never will be "paint by numbers".

    Furthermore, literally...
  22. Paint By Numbers is usually understood to be...

    Paint By Numbers is usually understood to be conventional, traditional, and expected. That doesn't apply to a movie wth as much narrative, cinematic, technical, and artistic innovation as Goodfellas....

    It's based on real historical figures and actual events that happened in real life.



    The main character is Irish-American and he marries a Jewish woman (who is given a major voiceover and is...

    Goodfellas and Casino utterly revolutionized narrative film in terms of editing, camera movement, action, storytelling. It's one of the most influential movies of the '90s. There was never anything...
  25. Scorsese said that he saw a couple of the MCU...

    Scorsese said that he saw a couple of the MCU movies and decided it wasn't worth his time. I am assuming he didn't name the movies to be diplomatic but instead everyone in the MCU sort of assumed he...
