The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

Disney sucks all out of the air in the room and constantly bullies every corner of the industry to get their way, I think Jamie Lee Curtis being a little bit of an ass on twitter is more than understandable.
I love the MCU but Disney are a menace and evil. And the MCU itself is quite problematic at times.

Go see Everything Everywhere All At Once! A masterpiece! Michelle Yeoh cinematic universe
Yuh. Please, everyone.

I can understand why people feel that way about Disney. But I can like both. I just don't think she needed to take a shot at one movie, which a lot of people have worked really hard on, to try to raise the profile of hers.

Nobody was putting Everthing, Everywhere down at all - it's being universally lauded.
 
They'll be fine, they can cry on their pile of money. No one who makes these does so for the respect of their peers.

Let’s not conflate Disney and Marvel execs with rank-and-file members of film crews. I worked on Multiverse of Madness but I guess mine and my colleagues’ piles of money got lost in the post, dd

Feels unnecessarily harsh. This type of response was just addressed by Olsen, quite appropriately.



“These are some of the most amazing set designers, costume designers, camera operators — I feel diminishing them with that kind of criticism takes away from all the people who do award-winning films, that also work on these projects.

From an actor’s point of view, whatever, I get it; I totally understand that there’s a different kind of performance that’s happening. But I do think throwing Marvel under the bus takes away from the hundreds of very talented crew people,” Olsen added. “That’s where I get a little feisty about that.”

Marvel sometimes gets it wrong, sometimes they get it right and indeed should not be free from criticism. There are a lot of things they deserve their flowers for even for the less good projects (Well, maybe not Moon Knight). While Everything Everywhere is far better than probably any Marvel movie Jamie Lee's rants seem bit...misplaced, but I live for her petty online dramas so keep them coming ddd.

Except there’s plenty of crew members who do probably feel like this movie is a huge labor of love and art so Jamie’s comment completely invalidates their perspectives.

Lizzie even acknowledged this in an interview recently. None of the “talent” has any misconception of what a Marvel movie entails; no one thinks this is some indie arthaus picture. But Lizzie felt defensive on behalf of all the crew who did pour their talent, artistry and effort into the movie.

EDIT: @~Paul~ beat me to it.

Yep. If the underlying issue that Jamie Lee and other film veterans have with Disney and Marvel’s business practices, they can say it with their full chest.

Jamie Lee's "your movie might be bigger and more expensive but ours is better and made with heart and care by true artists and filmmakers… nuh-uh!" stream of Instagram posts simply devalues the work of thousands of crew - including countless people who also contribute their skills and experience to her own films and television shows. Unlike her, most of those workers aren’t in a position to pick and choose projects based on supposed artistic worth.
 
Which is why I've always respected when people say WHY they didn't like the movie, what specific reasons and parts? And maybe acknowledge what the movie did right?
Countless people working on it, composer, special effects teMs, writers, actors, set designers, etc.
 
And on the other hand, you have actors like Jamie Lee Curtis shitting on Dr Strange saying that Everything Everywhere All At Once delivered a universe traveling story better, or whatever

I just got back from watching Dr Strange and almost constantly throughout I couldn't escape from the thought was that Everything Everywhere All At Once did it better... the humour, the heart, the plot, the multiverse, the acting, the costumes....

I was surprised to enjoy it at the start but from the
musical notes attack thing
it went downhill so rapidly
