Martin Scorsese

martinscorsese

Sometimes when you’re heavy into the shooting or editing of a picture, you get to the point where you don’t know if you could ever do it again.

Though initially I wasn’t his biggest fan, I eventually grew to love the films of Martin Scorsese. As of right now, I consider him my favorite director. It’s not just that his films are always intense; if you ever see this guy talking about anything film related, you’ll see why I admire him so much. Though he’s known for really dark and violent films, often centering around gangsters, he actually has a surprising amount of variety. However, you can always count on his films to be interesting and expressive. I’m close to being done with his filmography, though I still have many of his films to review.

    • I don’t know… I haven’t seen either on a big screen or in 3D (I know Hugo at least made a big deal out of being 3D). Prometheus probably has it beat, but it’s not hard to see why the Academy went with Hugo, given that it was a better received film in general.
      OKAY- I just looked up the nominees for 2011 and Prometheus wasn’t even nominated which is completely ridiculous. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, Hugo, Real Steel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon were the nominees. I’ve only seen HP and Hugo out of those, but Prometheus’ visual effects were great because they seemed so natural. I don’t know what the academy was on, but that’s true most of the time lol.

      • Seriously? Not even nominated That’s a joke! I mean transformers was good but I mean nothing new. Big robots and the destruction of a city. Planet of the apes was pretty good! I haven’t seen it again though but I enjoyed it! Those apes were too real! I want to watch all the HP now aha >.< but yeah that makes sense! Did you like Hugo as well? It did indeed receive a lot good talk about it.

        • I agree. Prometheus’s effects should have been nominated, there’s really no excuse.
          I’m actually reading all of the HP books right now and I almost finished. Might do the movies soon if I get in the mood but I’m not sure.
          I did like Hugo a lot! It’s especially good for film history nerds, but it’s mostly REALLY early stuff they’re talking about. Still cool though even though I know less about it.
