    One other small detail...

    This is just provably not the case.

    Heck, it was done in a film about organized crime years before Goodfellas.

    Going back repeatedly to the pair of characters who are not Italians says most of what needs to be said about just how "Paint By Numbers" the depictions of Italian criminals wind up being in...

    Put simply...

    If you were to attempt to dream up the most "Paint By Numbers" Italian involved in the "Mafia" corner of organized crime that you could, you would most likely see something that...

    That it's "Based On..." has nothing to do with the way that it tells the story. It is a strictly "Paint By Numbers" version of the characters whose story it tells.

    "Based On" doesn't mean you are...

    Let's assume that we could agree on those assertions...

    Those films also contain some of the most "Paint By Numbers..." representations of men who are a part of organized crime ever to wind up on...
  6. Which is something that just about anyone could...

    Which is something that just about anyone could make a perfectly valid case for Goodfellas or Casino being when it comes to "Organized Crime Films".

    As for Scorcese, there is a pretty good argument for that his life's work is the MCU following what came before him(The Silent Film Era and Orson Welles being the obvious examples of work that makes...

    If someone is going to insist that the difference between silent film and film with sound is simply a technical one and not even remotely an artistic one?

    Not much point in talking what is...

    That is exactly what this comes down to.

    Film makers from the time before films had sound or color could probably make a pretty solid argument for why everything Scorcese has ever done isn't...

    Speaking as someone who read and discussed that run while it was ongoing, the things in blue were some of the preexisting "Thor" fans biggest complaints.

    Accounting for how a lot of preexisting...

    While I still like Machete and am also a fan of the second film, I still have a tough time figuring out how the second film got made.
  12. Here's the problem... There is not "Facts"...

    Here's the problem...

    There is not "Facts" argument against that :Endgame is groundbreaking as a matter of fact that has much(if any) validity.

    That it isn't in someone's own view doesn't...

    Um...

    I don't know that this was really a "Go Berserk..." situation. Don't really want to say any more than that in this particular thread, but it might be a little bit more complicated than that.

    In that writer's opinion, sure.

    Meanwhile, the fact of it is that today's move won't exactly get more trust out of anyone that's left of "Actual Center".

    In blue, yes. He absolutely has.

    In green, that you are sure does not change that what is in blue absolutely has happened.

    One guy's take...

    What the old guy did was the only possible route to the film's epilogue that comes after Brown is murdered.

    I actually got a quick laugh out of that.

    It was like "How do you set someone up that perfectly?"

    There were Three Stooges bits that were not as well executed as that one accidentally wound up...

    Credit where it is due, this was about a million times better than I thought it would be.

    Very interesting corner of the current bigger picture.

    Based on what?

    A lot of blanks seem like they are being filled in with "Whatever I Want This To Look Like..."

    Seriously.

    There is right around "Nothing..." pointing to that this is actually taking place.

    An interesting piece in terms of how far and wide a particular infrastructure failing could wind up being an issue.

    If anything, the idea that this was the one that the CIA somehow had zero role in feels like the stretch.

    Could it be the case? Sure, anything is possible.

    That said, it's anything but some...

    Which means the CIA was involved, no?

    It's not exactly "Chicken Little..." to suspect/buy into that there is probably some involvement here.
