How long did you take you to clean and fully cut and package all the meat?

Thanks, Bloof! Ate way too much, of course! But, at least I didn't have to cook!

Rant. Apologies ahead of time.

Is anyone else getting tired of this ongoing debacle over genre movies and superhero movies not being "cinema"? I think Martin Scorsese is dead wrong.

The Shining is one of the best movies ever made.
The Exorcist is one of the best movies ever made.
The Dark Knight is one of the best movies ever made.
Ghostbusters is one of the best movies ever made.

There are good films and bad films, and that's really it, imo. Everything is cinema. To say that Taxi Driver is more "cinematic" than Joker, or Goodfellas is more "cinematic" than Jurassic Park, is just asinine to me.

I think most of the marvel films convey emotion, thoughts and ideas. It's mainly light entertainment, not melodrama, but that doesn't make it non cinematic.

Cinematic snobbery is all it is. I can appreciate lowbrow right thru to high art. It all depends on the mood I'm in. He just came off as old and bitter to me... just like when he was complaining about Netflix films not being real cinema.

Ok...I mean I can understand someone thinking this about superhero movies...because the vast majority of them are just popcorn flicks...doesn't make them "bad" but I can get why they're not taken very seriously.

There are shades though...You mentioned the Dark Knight, fair enough. I'm with that.
Batman 89, The Watchmen. The Boys series. 300. Sin City. Spider-Verse.
Some not just good, some fucking great.

But we also have "Ms Marvel", "The Phantom", Howard the Duck, STEEL, Spawn BVS and Superman 4 up there.
There is WAY more bad examples than good ones if you ask me...though I'm not about to dismiss the entire genre.

Scorsese was a fine director...but yknow...wouldn't have killed him to try something different for once in his life.

While I may question the taste of a person that ONLY watches popular films/popcorn flicks...or, perhaps not taste but unwillingness to branch out for their own experience...what it really comes down to is this;

A movie is a movie is a movie - the quality is subjective, and tastes are malleable dependent upon your mood at the time.
If you're someone that says otherwise, or will only watch movies and/or listen to music that makes them feel somehow superior or "of better taste", then you're a self important, pretentious fuckstick.

What's bizarre to me is that movies are one of the only mediums that don't celebrate their own art equally / let them all have a place at the table at awards ceremonies.

The Grammies include all music genres. Best Hip-Hop Artist, Best Country Album, Best Pop Video, etc. Why wouldn't the Oscars just have a category for each genre? Best Horror Film, Best Comedy Film, etc.
