Martin Scorsese gets his grump on and says Marvel movies aren’t cinema

Martin Scorsese gets his grump on and says Marvel movies aren’t cinema
Billions of people have enjoyed many Marvel movies in recent years, making the MCU the defining cinematic success story of a generation. But of course some people hate all this, and not just YouTubers wasting their time on honest trailer videos.
 
Step forward Martin Scorsese, who has got a major grump on. As he told Empire:
 
“I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema... Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”
 
Or yunno, providing fun and escapism from a terrible world.
