Captain Falcon is more popular in Super Smash Bros. than he's ever been in an F-Zero game. Let that sink in.

I would not even consider Raimi's the best Spider-Man in the franchise. I think people mostly regard it so highly because it was the first big-screen take on the character and thus nostalgic - which is fine they're still solid movies. I just think Tom Holland the definitive Spidey at this point.

With that said: The Dark Knight has a strong case of potentially being among the best Batman movies. The Dark Knight wins in that regard.

Joker is officially in the trajectory of the billion dollar club. It is performing extremely well worldwide and it's already at 500million in its second weekend. I am pretty sure it won't get 1st again next weekend but a likely 2nd, and it will do well for the rest of its run yet mellow out. It might get a kick come around award season cause it's getting that kind of buzz as well.

If Joker gets into the billion club (which happens more frequently these days than ever in history) and gets passed Deadpool's gross, then Joker will take the throne for highest grossing R-rated film of all-time.

I find new music pretty much everywhere, and that includes film too.

Often times I'll have my playlist on Youtube running, and then it leads me to new discoveries. The same goes when I use Spotify.

Sometimes I hear music in a public space. Maybe I'm at a market or some social event.

Sometimes when I am tired of hearing my own music, I'll listen to the radio.

I've been to concerts and music festivals, and I've discovered new music in a live setting as well.

Music comes from anywhere to me.

@jaydan: You might want to actually read my posts before arguing.

Oh I did read your whole post - but there comes a point where there's nothing more to say over the substance of the other points you're making as nothing more than a matter of opinion.

People can have opinions all they want, but when it comes to having an opinion over objective manners - well - the objectivity will rule over your subjective opinion.

Cinema and film are not even the same thing. Cinema is a PLACE that houses film, and film is the product that keeps the doors of that cinema open. The only reason why they're being grouped together is by association of one another, and yet they're not the same thing.

You don't need to try to educate me on cinema. I am very well educated. Remember FAU back in the day on this site? I used to be one of the admins on that union. I've watched endless cinema off all shapes and sizes from every era. I have studied film in school and I have worked in film as well.

My knowledge and appreciation of ALL types of film is not belittled just because I also happen to accept the MCU as a part of cinema.

It is not a genre - it is a place that houses movies.

Yes and you seem to think YOUR opinion is the only one that matters.

It's not about an opinion anymore.

You are trying to justify film and cinema are the same thing. They are not. One is a place and one is a thing.

Objectively, that is incorrect. Cinema is not a genre. Try looking on any movie platform (like Netflix) and go to the genres and look on the genre tab "cinema"; actually, it does not exist.

Just because you have a prolific director - and quite frankly, among my favorite director's - voicing an opinion, does not suddenly make it a fact.

I think you are struggling between the subjective and objective voice here even though you're saying I'm struggling to accept an opinion. I am wholeheartedly accepting your opinion (an Scorsese) - I am just telling you it is factually incorrect. Just because you have an opinion does not make it true.

In your opinion, the world can be flat. That does not mean it is true, and just because I would tell you "the world is not flat" does not mean I am struggling to accept your opinion - I am telling you objectively your opinion is wrong.

@LJS9502_basic: That's exactly the point I am saying: There are differences in genres, there are differences in style, there are differences in ambition and there are differences in quality - and yet it is all cinema.

Neither you nor Scorsese have a say in whether or not Marvel movies are cinema, because that is an objectively false statement and no matter what kind of cinematic profile Scorsese has, that is a false statement.

The quality and approach of these movies can be argued but regardless these arguments don't change a simple fact.

One thing Scorsese admitted in this very interview is "I don't see them" so that right there shows he's about to send off a short-sighted opinion that even he had to disclaim he's not the most informed.

With all due respect towards Scorsese - because he is among the best living directors - his opinions are not always right. This is one among the latter.

Hardly any filmmakers are making shared-universe movies to begin with, and the ones that are not Marvel that attempted shared-universe have been met with abysmal results.

See your argument is coming down to semantics. He's using cinema a specific way and you want him to use it your way. As I said use cinema and movie as two different styles and it might make sense to you.

Actually, I understand perfectly well where you are coming from.

You are being a separatist right now over your taste (or Scorsese) of film over ones you do not like. I get it, but here's a newsflash: cinema and movies all boil down to the same thing.

I used to think that way too...Separate a film from a movie...eventually I realized how pretentious that was and it's all the same thing.

The MCU is a part of modern cinema. It's not really a place for you or Scorsese to take out of the books just because you don't like the franchise.

Case and point: the rest of your post boils down to your opinions on why you don't like the MCU - and that is fine - but that does not negate the fact the MCU is a part of modern cinema.

I would hope not all film makers are going to create marvel style movies.

in his mind, by his definition of "cinema" it may not be.

how does he define "cinema" in the first place??

have we agreed on a universal definition of the term?

His definition of cinema is the kind that he paved alongside the generations of filmmakers that inspired him before his time.

What Marvel is doing is something wholly new and to much of these old-timer guys, it's a concept of filmmaking that's hard to grasp.

It's kinda unfortunate some of these old-timer legends just don't get the modern age of cinema; but hey, not every prolific director is taking the Marvel universe negatively.

Quentin Tarantino is a couple generations ahead of Scorsese but he has become one of the legendary director's of this time as well. While Marvel has nothing to do with Tarantino's style, Tarantino has gone on record numerous times saying how he's a fan of the MCU and how he's binged watched their movies.

If only Scorsese can be more like Tarantino and understand that not every form of cinema has to be like yours to be justifiable.
