    Martin Scorsese

    "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.”

    Francis Ford Coppola

    “Martin was being kind when he said it wasn’t cinema, he didn’t say it was despicable, which is what I say.”

    James Gunn

    “Some superhero films are awful, some are beautiful. Like westerns and gangster movies (and before that, just MOVIES), not everyone will be able to appreciate them, even some geniuses. And that’s okay.”

    “I’m puzzled by it. If they want to bitch about movies it’s certainly their right. It seems so disrespectful to all the people who work on those films who are working just as hard as the people who are working on their films and are putting their creative souls on the line just like they are,”

    Ken Loach

    "They are made as commodities … like hamburgers. It's about making a product that makes a profit for a big company. They're a cynical exercise. They are an exercise on the market and it has nothing to do with the art of cinema."

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    “I know there’s been a lot of debate lately with really very fine filmmakers coming to the fore saying that these film franchises are taking over everything, but lucky us actors who get to do both kinds of variety at either polarity of budgeting.”

    “And I agree,” he says. “We don’t want one king to rule it all and have a kind of monopoly and hopefully, that’s not the case and we should really look into continuing our filmmakers at every level.”
