    Truly amazing how much brainlet MCU fags are still mad over Martin Scorsese rightfully stating Marvel movies aren't real movies.

    I can't believe anyone's surprised or even cared he said that

    I feel like if you enjoy these kinds of movie at all, you gotta have some kind of awareness that they ain't exactly the most complex or ambitious thing out there

    Guess I expected too much though

    I wouldn't say they aren't ambitious. Making a comic book movie good enough to make comic fans happy but simple enough that people who dont enjoy comics can get in to and have fun with takes talent


    But outside of big budget special effects they didn't really bring anything new to film

    meant more from a story/character perspective

    but yeah the effects are always fun and as someone who doesn't read superhero comics, I have always appreciated their ability to simplify it and make it enjoyable for me

    I just also get that that comes at the cost of having a more complex narrative and characters (and I'm ok with that)

    Marvelfags are mad because he stated the truth just like Maher and Cameron did a few years before him. You can like the MCU, but pretending these shallow popcorn flicks are anything more then episodic products designed to feed off audience's consumeristic wants for more content at the lowest common denominator is factually true.

    After Phase 1, these movies were pumped out increasingly onto the silver screen and largely shot mostly in CGI. So his comments about them being basically actors on a theme park doing VR stunts to entertain people isn't off the mark at all.

    they're missing that he admits they're well made and have good performances too, so the rage isn't even well placed

    but having nice components alone isn't enough to make a movie great

    I just wish mcu mcu hadn't gotten so repetitive
    Thankfully it's hard to really care now that EG is over

    And for some extra salt in the wound:



    And you wonder why American Superhero Comics is a dying breed? Dude isn't even being angry with him, just pointing out that they could have easily done something different with Jon but NOOOOPE, we gotta make him into an adult because all we have for him is Fortnite jokes, homework and chores.

    Un-fucking-believable.

    Wow. What a douche. :catdude

    How the hell does removing Jon from the family environment that made him so appealing in the first place help his character?

    Are these people just incapable of portraying a functional nuclear family or what?

    his idea of making someone relatable was to completely scrap Richard Rider and replace him with an expy of his dead son.

    Nuclear family is about the furthest thing he's qualified to write

    Honestly, I can see Blizzard somewhat surviving this... but not without killing a good chunk of their credibility in the process.

    I understand dicksucking China because it's going through an economic boom... but that's all this really is.
    China is trying to force itself to become a superpower when not all of it's eggs are in a single basket and the basket itself is in danger of literally breaking by the handle.

    I'm not even sure WHY these companies are so hellbent to bend their asses towards China when at any moment... that boom can lapse and their economy can go in smoke in a decade or less.

    And where will they be now after that?

    @Fang
    I think Martin Scorcese is in the right to say something like that because it NEEDS to be stated.
    Marvel Movies aren't bad movies... but they are ultimately just popcorn movies and I think so many people have literally seen them as the apex movies of this generation that they never seen any true thought provoking movies. No movies that had them actually question themselves, no movies like the Joker that's meant for you to really get into the heads of these heroes and villains, to see the world as they see it.

    And that's all they would ever amount to and I think The Joker movie is the first superhero(villain?) movie... that actually tries to get you to understand... and then hate the Joker.

    What's funnier is what I get from everyone else is that China's economy is LITERALLY UNSTABLE and it's bound to burst sooner or later.
    It's a boon that has no real chance of lasting to actually make them BECOME a Superpower yet they keep trying to make it work.

    So all of these companies bending their asses towards China for a good hardcore dicking... is that it WILL become flaccid sooner or later. So all of this goodwill they are burning is literally FOR THE MOMENT. This is how assbackwards these companies are becoming.
