Movies Scorsese on Marvel movies: "That's not cinema" "Theme park ride" EDIT: Coppola says Marvel movies "despicable" "same movie over and over again"

Recommended Posts

You know, someone should point out to Scorsese that if you guest star on an episode of Entourage, you don’t get to bitch about “cinema”.

@skillzdadirecta What do you think of Leonard Maltin? I used to watch his reviews on Stars.

 

I remember him... he never really stood out to me. I really stopped paying attention to reviewers as a whole in college. I read this essay by Ray Carney about the state of film criticism in the industry and it completely changed my outlook on how films are critiqued today. I haven't looked back since. He was very harsh on a lot of films that I and loved but I couldn't argue with his assessment of modern film criticism. I generally just go by my own interest or word from people that I know when it comes to films and what to see. Works for me :shrug:

Someone should point out to you that Scorsese can do whatever he wants and then "bitch" about "cinema" because he's fucking MARTIN SCORSESE.

Blade Runner 2049

is one of the best movies I have ever seen and it made me really like Ryan Gosling as this was the first thing I had seen him in and then went on to watch like 4-5 movies that star him. However, I hate the first blade runner. Fuckin trash.

Edit: Is The Irishman actually good? IMDB etc. all look killer but that whole aging thing really turned me off and I thought it looked kind of silly and terrible in the trailers :/

 

A trusted source gave it a 10/10 so it must be pretty good.

I really fucking like The Place Beyond The Pines if you haven't seen that yet. Granted, it's not a Ryan Gosling "vehicle" but I think he's extremely memorable in that and it's just a great, albeit pretty oddly structured, movie.

I liked it until the teens showed up.

That was my impression the first time I saw it. I've seen it twice since and it felt more natural knowing that it's going that way later. It's definitely flawed but I still think it's a great movie. Anyway just meant to recommend since Gosling is fucking good in that, cool you've seen it though.

That movie is great and is directed by the guy who did Blue Valentine, an even better Ryan Gosling film.

I unfortunately watched that movie when my marriage was starting to slowly go down the drain and it's still one of the most awful reactions I've had to a movie. It's objectively a great one but I'm never watching that again, damn!

It's a very difficult watch, no question.

Another movie in recent memory that thoroughly upset the shit out of me was A Ghost Story for a similar reason.

It is common knowledge that Gosling’s best performance was in The Notebook. Especially when they made him look like James Garner.

That’s the movie that made me a Mahershala Ali fan. His part is great.

I remember getting my friend and his g/f to go with me. I kept hyping it up since it was billed by some people as the saddest movie in ages, and the day of, he was like, "This better be the most motherfucking depressing thing I've ever seen or you owe me a movie ticket."

 

His g/f was wiping away tears at the end, but he demanded that I owed him. :p

I would say it's more too fucking real rather than just depressing. There are many aspects that, in some way or another, I think many people have experienced in a relationship that I had never seen so bluntly and eloquently represented on screen. Maybe in Eternal Sunshine... and Annie Hall on second thought but yeah. 

 

It's definitely not depressing in a sensationalistic fashion, so maybe he won the bet in that regard!

Well, I don't think he was at a time in his life where it would impact him as much, and he's a hard one to crack. I thought it was sad but I wasn't moved as much. We were both in college, and the whole thing of, "A relationship dissolves for no real reason," wasn't as much a relatable concept, I guess?

Good point. Basically nothing was relatable nor emotional to me in my 20s.

God no, even the word marriage makes me shiver and recoil these days! 

 

I can't stay away from those stupid gifs. Every since the gif button was introduced I realized my words are inferior to funny images from movies. Pure boomer.

I love the Guardians movies but are they really an accurate representation of the MCU as a whole? Both movies, Guardians 2 in particular, have always felt like outliers to me. James Gunn elevates the meaningless MCU format into something that is thoughtful and has something to say about our familial relationships. It has the emotional weight that almost all of the other movies sorely lack.
