“You’re telling me Ryan Coogler making Black Panther is doing something that is somehow or another less than what Marty Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola have ever done on any one of their movies? Like, come on. Yeah, I said it.”
Oh brother. Yes, Black Panther is NOT on the same level as Scorsese’s and Coppola’s classics. Is he really trying to equate that simple popcorn action flick with those serious dramas like Taxi Driver or Apocalypse Now?October 23, 2019 at 4:27 am #1203148648
They may be “right” but since the film industry is a business, they could end up with no venues to display their art.
Coppola basically retired years ago and Scorsese teamed up with Netflix. So they can voice the truth about Marvel without fear for venues or anything like that.October 22, 2019 at 6:00 pm #1203148318
Both Coppolla and Scorsese are right.
Also David Fincher is not the fan of Marvel either. He said it 2 years ago.October 16, 2019 at 8:29 am #1203139366
Thank you! It is such an interesting film. My second-favorite of the original series.
The problem that this film plot wise crapped all over Aliens and even Alien.October 16, 2019 at 6:36 am #1203139169
Oh, lordy… First of all, he was an acquaintance of William Randolph Hearst (he was friends with Marion Davies’ nephew) and frequent guest at Sam Simeon (the inspiration for Kane and Xanadu) and many people believe his treatment by Hearst was an inspiration for the depiction of Kane. Second, there have been various reports claiming that he was the true genius behind the screenplay of “Citizen Kane”, and he loved to claim it as well. Third, he was a barely functional alcoholic. There’s more, but I can’t cover it all here.
Also initially Mankiewicz wasn’t supposed to receive any credit for his work on that screenplay at all, only Welles, but he put up a fight and was credited. The screenplay went on to win Oscar. There was lots of drama.October 16, 2019 at 3:34 am #1203138910
Darlings, are you really serious? Nose isn’t winning an Oscar over Joke. Not in the real world. Get it together!!!
Yep. Unless you came from the future it’s pretty stupid to claim that any of them is 100% winning atm. What I’m saying Driver has plenty of stuff to support his possible win. And btw the recent scandal with Jeremy Renner in Hollywood kinda comes in handy for Driver’s chances.October 15, 2019 at 3:27 pm #1203138303
Darlings, Nose stans are the most annoying thing ever to appear on these forums. For Thatcher’s sake. He’s not winning for getting divorced against Joke playing a mental ill psycho. You need to wake up, dear citizens.
Actually Driver may have extra-momentum, because a lot of Academy voters, a lot of male voters, may have gotten fed up with MeToo thing (which some people say turned into something like “men are trash, period”, where it’s always men’s fault and women can never be responsible for anything ever). Driver has a role which shows man divorcing his wife and loving his child in sympathetic light. So Academy may pick Driver’s performance also because it’s pro-man performance and role, while Phoenix plays just another man going crazy and violent and killing people.October 15, 2019 at 5:21 am #1203137270
About GG – Close won GG too, remember? She won SAG. But not the Oscar.October 13, 2019 at 7:00 am #1203134193
I’m sorry that I have exquisite taste, an ear for an excellent script, an eye for brilliant direction, a keen sense for wonderful characterization and the ability to see when a writer/director who is also a fan is able to take that love and use it to take the established reins of a story and infuse it with heart and creativity, subverting expectations in the best way possible while staying true to the essence of the creator.
Throwing Luke Skywalker and his entire characterization under a bus is exquisite and creative storytelling to you? Lol.October 13, 2019 at 6:50 am #1203134187
Adoring the Last Jedi, yuck, yuck.
