    I don't know if that fits the topic though, I mean regardless of personal taste I think it's easy to understand why Batman Begins got sequels...it's obvious if you don't care for it whil films like...
  2. The arguments for superheroes "ruining" comics...

    The arguments for superheroes "ruining" comics don't carry over to film though for the simple reason that film isn't a niche product or in danger of becoming a niche. That's why tights dominate the...
  3. If the option is traditional studious don't fund...

    If the option is traditional studious don't fund the film and it doesn't get made or a streaming platform decides to give you the green light and you get to make your film I just don't see it as a...
  4. A decade ago it might not have been made at all...

    A decade ago it might not have been made at all so Netflix isn't a come down at all. It's not as if Scorsese has never had a film go unmade, even at his apex.
  5. It's not the truth though, art films have always...

    It's not the truth though, art films have always made up a small portion of film out put and always will. Pick any year you like and look at all the films that came out and you'll see that the kinds...

    I don't think most are upset about his tastes, I myself don't care for most of the Marvel films, it's the idea he's putting forward that blockbusters are squeezing out smaller films and that the...

    There were scenes in the trailer with a IG droid that weren't in this episode so I'm guessing we'll see another or maybe he repairs this one.

    Herzog did say he gave purpose to the lead so I'm guessing it's definitely going to be a play on Lone Wolf. The Mandolorian won't be able to complete the bounty so he'll be hunted by everyone else in...

    What fx shots looked bad to you guys? I can't say I noticed anything.

    I love the Thrawn series and I think their quality is why they've been reworked into the new material but I always hated the whole vong war stuff so I'm not sad to see it gone. There was a lot to...

    True, forgetting the awful stuff of the past and just starting fresh was definitely the best way to go. I may not have liked the sequel trilogy very much up until now but it's better than most of...

    The Mandalorian

    Man, I'd say this show alone was worth the price of admission for Disney+ that was an utterly fantastic first episode. With out spoiling it, with the reveal of just what the bounty was on at the end...
  13. I don't think he's jealous, he likes what he...

    I don't think he's jealous, he likes what he likes in terms of film and that's fine. I only take issue with the fantasy he seems to have concocted for himself in framing his opinion, film was never...
  14. Not really, it's only your point that is...

    Not really, it's only your point that is hyperbolic. To try and pretend that the Marvel movies are just soulless commercial products simply because you don't care for them is just putting your head...

    Another defense that just has me shaking my head, this one's worse than Graham's
    Mac Thornberry: While it was inappropriate for Mr Trump to have asked a foreign country to help discredit a...

    I don't think there's a way to fix it, some times a bad story just needs to go away.

    I think if Cameron were honest with himself even he'd say Spielberg is better than him.
  18. It's not prohibitive though, at least not...

    It's not prohibitive though, at least not markedly more so than the past. Again, do you know how many pitches he's made that got turned down in the past, even after his successes? How many of his...

    That's your rose colored specs coloring your perception of the industry at those times though, sure there were films like Casablanca and Sunset Boulevard made but do you know how many other films...

    They're still just a piece of the pie, true, it's a larger slice than before but that's due to the increasingly competitive entertainment field in which film is only one player among many. There's...

    If all he was stating was a personal preference that'd be fine, I don't care for most of the Marvel movies myself, I only took issue with his assertion that movies like the Marvel films are squeezing...

    And to that I'll say it's no different than how the studios have done genre films in the past. People like Westerns? Quick, make a ton! Teenagers are just eating up that slasher film? Let's flood the...

    Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana, meanwhile, said he was skeptical any new testimony brought against the president would change the minds of Senate Republicans.

    “Regardless of how many people you bring...

    It's definitely one of my favorite eras of films...but it's a brief aberration not the norm and it ended over four decades ago so you'd think he would have made peace with that change long ago.
  25. That's precisely my point, the golden age he's...

    That's precisely my point, the golden age he's lamenting never existed. Cinema has always been dominated by films put out by studios chasing the latest trends, whether it's action/comedies, sci-fi,...
