I'll put this here.  Seems appropriate, demographically.

"Trying to fit in since 2017."

This could go in the other thread about meeting PTA. He seemed pretty nice and giving of his time there.

PTA looks so done with everything. Never understood what purpose selfies serve.

is nice to have them as memories, no? I once shared a cigarette with a famous swedish person, and still have the cigarette butt saved somewhere. It could be the new trend! "excuse me Paul, you wanna blow my cigarette?"

Labelling films based on gender appeal is lazy, but could you classify Paul films as being "guy flicks?" In a couple of lists that countdown the greatest movies for men, Paul got cited with Boogie Nights, TWBB, and The Master. The IMDB ratings showed a gender dispute between how they approach his movies with men rating them higher then woman. This is intellectually weak argument to have, but there gotta be something that turns females away from his work even though he's consider one of the best American filmmakers around.

Here's where I'm coming from: Mean Streets bored me; Casino, while solid, is just Goodfellas all over again; and The Departed is not that great a movie and a remake to boot.  I haven't seen a couple of those on the list, but the point is, Scorsese isn't consistent and he repeats himself.  I don't deny he's made some great films.  Taxi Driver fits, but it's bro-nip if ever I've seen it.  Does that discredit him?  Nah.  But he sticks to the same genre.  A great filmmaker will do different things, and not keep going back to where he's comfortable.  Scorsese keeps going back to the crime well.  Plus, the films I've seen of his don't have an emotional resonance that makes for a great filmmaker.

This is an incredibly stupid hill to die on.
