The Ankler Is Skeptical On I. P. Drive

“The whole point of Bob Iger’s great leap forward was supposed to be that once you had these mega-brands they would sell themselves. Apparently not! Marvel’s incredible winning streak remains the exception. The Rule, which has not been repealed, remains defined by DC, Universal Monsters, etc.: A run continues as long as you keep making great movies people can’t wait to see.  Marvel is having an incredible run, but as is the way of all flesh, it’s two bad movies away from collapse.”

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
