We go to the headlines this week and discuss the overblown feud between Martin Scorsese and James Gunn over the validity of Marvel films as cinema. Where is the line between art and commerce? Is Scorsese's nostalgic picture of cinema relevant today? Is Marvel a danger to the future of film, or a harmless amusement park ride?
