I’ve mentioned it earlier than and I’ll say it once more – for those who’re trying to make a nuanced argument, Twitter is just not the place to do it. I feel Blomkamp was shocked at how rapidly the story made the rounds – however right here’s the factor. When one nice director places down one other, it’s information in a variety of methods. At any charge, I’m glad to see that any animosity between these too was short-lived.
ORIGINAL POST: Neill Blomkamp has some selection phrases for Denis Villeneuve after listening to that the Dune director thinks the Marvel films are simply “nothing greater than a reduce and paste of others.” Yesterday, Blomkamp retweeted a publish by Fandom, which contained the quote from Villeneuve. Blomkamp captioned the Twitter post “What a fucking asshole,” making his disapproval of Villeneuve’s opinion as clear as crystal.
In case you missed what occurred. Villeneuve not too long ago spoke with Spanish newspaper El Mundo, the place the dialog with the interviewer Luis Martínez finally touched on Martin Scorsese’s views on Marvel films. Villeneuve responded by saying, “Maybe the issue is that we’re in entrance of too many Marvel films which might be nothing greater than a ‘reduce and paste’ of others.” He provides, “Maybe some of these films have turned us into zombies a bit… However huge and costly films of nice worth, there are various at this time. I don’t really feel able to being pessimistic in any respect.”
I don’t know when the Marvel Cinematic Universe turned a degree of rivalry for filmmakers, however it strikes me as counterproductive to take them down on such a grand scale. In spite of everything, the identical individuals who line up for Marvel films are probably trying ahead to Dune as properly. I do know I’m, and I’m very a lot a Marvel film zombie. Ah properly, to every their very own and all that, proper?
Do you suppose Villeneuve will shrug upon listening to Blomkamp’s phrases? He’s in all probability bought larger fish to fry, proper? I think about that he’s busy selling the hell out of Dune within the hope of getting a sequel and has little time to scrap with Blomkamp. I plan to maintain loving the Marvel films and never fear about what Scorsese or Villeneuve thinks about them. How about you? Tell us what you suppose within the feedback part beneath.
