    Um, he's saying all Scorsese films are the same. Unless Scorsese has made just two films, I don't know what you're getting at.
    Iron Man 3 is not the same as Thor Ragnarok. Just pointing that out to you for the 37th time. Unless the MCU consists of just Black Panther and Doctor Strange, I don't know what you're ever getting at.

    I kind of feel that Casino and Goodfellas are a bit different in that one features a couple of not very high up mob guys and the other one covers two guys who ran an entire city. Also I really need to see Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.

    Okay, but what's the case for the MCU films?
    Does there need to be one?

    Then let's just drop it, shall we? You love the MCU, I do not. I find them all samey and superficial (still have not had the desire to rewatch a single one), you do not. You think Scorsese films are all the same because of GoodFellas and Casino. About cover it? Good. Let's move on.

    I think you should be able to love anything you want in any way you want - as long as you are able to handle criticism from some people who don't like it. And by "handle" I don't even mean "listen and consider" - I mean, just ignore it and keep on loving what you do. That is what is most amusing about the Scorsese thing - he is just giving his opinion about some movies, and MCU fans are up in arms. Like, everyone has their own definition of what cinema is, so deal with it?

    Edit to add: Just a reminder, there is a huge difference between saying "I don't like Movie X" and "I don't think Person Y should talk about Movie X if they don't like it" - yes, they are both superficially opinions about Movie X, but one is focused on the movie itself to the exclusion of other things, and one is actively encouraging dissent to be quashed to prevent hurt feelings.

    History is littered with remakes. They are a neutral phenomenon. Especially since I don't have to watch them.

    When you said, "We must stand up for ourselves," I just assumed that standing up for yourself meant explaining why you like the things that you like.
    Just because...

    Not quite. Can you, just for once, explain to me, objectively, how the two movies i mentioned are the same?

    Well sure one can if they want. Doesnt mean anyone has to listen to it.

    I more meant to stand up for ourselves when someone blasts critics.

    I don't even like MCU films in general, I just think Scorsese's statement is stupid. And I used Zoolander to make a frivolous statement about it - because his silly statement doesn't deserve serious consideration. You don't have to be up in arms to find the statement absolutely silly.

    Yeah, sure, ok, whatever. Unlike most of the people on this site I find arguing semantics to be really dull and a waste of time. Especially on a mostly dead site.

    I'm not arguing semantics. I'm arguing what I actually said. Because you misrepresented my opinion.
