MARTIN SCORSESE got under a lot of people's skin by saying that Marvel movies are, quote, "not cinema." He added that he hasn't seen them, but he, quote, "tried".
He compared them to theme parks and said, quote, "It isn't the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being."
Among the people who hit back were "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn, who said, quote, "Martin Scorsese is one of my 5 favorite living filmmakers.
"I was outraged when people picketed 'The Last Temptation of Christ' without having seen the film. I'm saddened that he's now judging my films in the same way."
