I'm with Marty Scorsese, superhero movies are theme-parks. Star Wars the First was great, went downhill from there. The Madalorian seemed ok from the one ep I watched.

I really am not far from yelling at clouds I guess.
I’m with you and Marty on this one.

yelling at clouds is underrated.

I agree as well too a point. Been saying for a long time Hollywood is for entertainment - British, French, Danish, Norwegian, Korean, Japanese etc are for scripts and a storyline. America is the land of hype and bluff. So I'll watch Hollywood for the big budget blockbuster entertainment movies and the rest with their cheaper budgets where they have to spend the money on writing a script and having to act. Am big at the moment going through Danish, Norwegian and Korean films and TV series :cool:

(On another note, Scorsese doco series 'My Voyage to Italy' 1999, a voyage on his youth growing up watching Italian movies is a fantastic look through his eyes, and you can see his artistic talents and love for cinema are as good as you can find. Well worth a watch if you're a movie buff :giggle:)

Like all genres, superhero movies have good and bad ones with a weighting to more bad ones. Spider-Man NWH is definitely one of the better ones.,

Yep like all genre's. Horror is my hate, hardly a good one comes from that genre. So boring :sleep: I can give you a list of Western's I grew up on that were absolutely horrific as well. You'd watch John Ford, John Wayne and Clint Western's for sure but Audie Murphy movie's for one, he made heaps of garbage Western's in the 50's and 60's. Probably 4 good one's, 41 :poop: Move to the 70's and 80's and heaps of garbage was made. Ishtar, Bolero just a couple. Even on here, TigerForce was mentioning 'Can't Stop The Music' the other day, a classic or not? :unsure::banana

Watched Tomorrow War the other week. Loved the creatures but everything else was worse than meh.

If you still watch it, do yourself a favour and turn off before the last 3-4 minutes. Beyond cringe worthy stuff!

Ghostbusters Afterlife, pleasant enough but won’t be remembered as a classic, almost a kids film. The original GBers don’t appear til the last 10 minutes unfortunately.
