Do cinephiles watch blockbuster films?


As I recall, Nolan watched the 2017 version of Justice League and warned Snyder against ever watching it himself.

I have trouble thinking of Bay and Snyder as hacks because they have such recognisable style even if the individual movies as a whole aren't necessarily good, which is more than I can say for countless other directors.
When one affords Bay and Snyder the same narrative leeway they give to “art” directors that favor aesthetic, mood and style over plot and character, their qualities are undeniable.

In my opinion... there’s always a sense of objectivity.

Officially outing myself as an inconsistent person here, given our back and forth in the other thread, but this is truly very funny. Hat off.
