Francis Ford Coppola is getting in on it huh.

He said the MCU tells the same story over and over again. That's just false. Whether you like MCU movies or not, there is no question the stories have evolved. These dudes keep criticizing the movie but I'm betting they haven't even seen them. FFC's Dracula is my shit, but it's not objectively a better piece of cinema than Winter Soldier.

They really are, although after I read Scorsese's statement, it wasn't really that bad. He basically said MCU movies were like amusement park rides, which I guess is fair to say. He made the point in a condescending way, but it wasn't really wrong. Ford on the other hand called the MCU movies despicable. That's just fucked up. And can't be explained any other way than hating.

Scorsese said more than just they are amusement rides.

He also said they wasn't cinema.

Yeah, I just dismiss that as a stupid comment. He basically summarized it all by saying that after finding out what goes into the MCU movies, he respects what they've done, but the movies themselves just aren't for him. There's nothing wrong with that.

People were reacting more to the comment about them not being cinema. That's some hating shit. I just think that when you read all of what he said, he kinda backed away from that stance in the end.

Whats cinema?
Great scenes, great dialog and great acting which none of these super hero trash has. These niggas think that big explosions and wack fight scenes with CGI makes these corny ass movies top notch. Those shits just a movie while Godfather , Casino and the rest of Martin's movies are Cinema

This is no different from KRS and the pioneers saying what is and isn't Hip Hop.

You don't have to like the way they say it but that's what gatekeepers are for.
