  • That's so Yeah, it does.

  • Copper wire Cover where you got it.

  • Got it.

  • Okay, you got it.

  • Don't let it touch it.

  • Sides when you're coming out.

  • That's what I was trying to say before.

  • Okay, Now make sure that when you pull it out, you don't pull out.

  • That doesn't matter.

  • At the end of it, that was it.

  • Welcome to your weekly ticket.

  • A Z This year comes to a close.

  • We're taking a look at the best films of the 21st century so far from some huge box office hits, two winners of the most Oscars were breaking it all down with the help of film critic Scott Mantz.

  • Scott All right, how it films changed over the past 20 years.

  • Well, that is a bold and a loaded question.

  • But for if you really want to take a look at how movies have changed, look at the Marvel cinematic universe.

  • Look at the way thes superhero and comic book movies have become the biggest and the top grossing movies of the year.

  • The biggest grossing movie of all time is Avengers Endgame, which actually beat Avatar so until it holds a new spot.

  • But you know, the last 20 years, the superhero, the comic book genre has really held its own, starting with the first X Men movie, which came out 20 years ago.

  • I think that the fact that we've seen these superhero movies become the top grossing films and what Marvel has done with Kevin Fagih has done with Marvel Studios the way you have to phase one and phase two in the Phase three and you have all the superheroes popping in and out of each other's movies.

  • That is really that the game changer because other Siri's and other franchises they're trying to do that Star Wars is trying to do its own cinematic universe.

  • So Marvel really did change the game.

  • And really, that is the success story off movies in the 21st century.

  • So can you recommend a couple of films that resonate and speak to what was popular at the time that they came out?

  • Well, I definitely want to say one movie that I think is one of the very best of the century is get out.

  • Like when that movie was over, we were all just like, What was that like?

  • It was such a bold original film.

  • It was an allegory for racial stereotyping and tolerance.

  • But it was done in such an original and entertaining way and a provocative way.

  • I mean, it was, Ah, horror thriller was a psychological thriller.

  • There was, ah, some levity and humor in there.

  • Daniel Ca Loya Allison Williams were fantastic.

  • And, boy, did Jordan Peele deserve that Oscar when he won for original screenplay.

  • That movie, I think, was just the perfect film.

  • Thio capture that steer towards acknowledging the racial stereotyping and intolerance in a way that it was accessible because people were so entertained by the movie.

  • They didn't realize until they really thought about it, that they were watching a movie with a message that was a fun movie to take people to That didn't know about it, too, because then they come out.

  • They're just got so much to talk about.

  • It's great.

  • That was a fantastic movie.

  • So the other way you can look at the last 20 years look at the year 2008, 2000 and eight was a landmark year for movies specifically for comic book based movies.

  • In the beginning of May, you had the release of Iron Man, which is a great film.

  • Robert Downey Jr was absolutely perfect, as Tony Stark is the role he was born to play, among others, because he's a great actor.

  • But it's also the film that launched the Marvel cinematic universe, which, as you know, with more than 20 movies now over these last 12 years, has become just a unprecedented movie.

  • Siris in the history of Motion Pictures.

  • And that first movie had to be good.

  • But also just a couple months after Ironman opened, You had the release off The Dark Knight, directed by Christopher Nolan.

  • That was a game changing film right there because I mean, yeah, it's Batman and the Joker.

  • But the movie was so grounded in reality and Heath Ledger you know he won the Academy Award for supporting actor after he had passed away, but the movie was just so plausible.

  • It was a mob movie, and it really raised the bar for how thes superhero movies can be.

  • But also 2016 was another landmark year because you had to completely different films that are both amazing for completely different reasons, and they both did very well at the Academy Awards.

  • Of course, the one that I love the most is la La Land.

  • I was a big champion and cheerleader for that film.

  • You know, movie really spoke to me about my love for Hollywood, my love for Los Angeles, and Emma Stone, who I adore, had great chemistry with Ryan Gosling.

  • It was a magical film.

  • The music was great.

  • Score was great.

  • It was just a real feel good crowd pleaser.

  • And there was magic to it and won six Academy Awards, including director and best actress for Emma Stone.

  • You know Moonlight, you know, won best picture.

  • Also like supporting actor for Mahershala Ali.

  • You know, that was a groundbreaking film in its own right for diversity, and it was like Brokeback Mountain.

  • It was a wonderful, beautiful, beautiful film that still holds up.

  • Those two movies sort of make the rounds during the awards season in 2016.

  • In 2000, 17 comedies were over performing in the early two thousands way back in the old days.

  • But now the biggest box office films are horror.

  • What do you think that says?

  • And how does that inform us off what genres will have a comeback in the next decade.

  • You're right to point out that, like comedies and romantic comedies that started Thio taper off at the box office in In its Way, we saw all these.

  • You know, of course, the superhero films in the comic book movies and, of course, Star Wars movies.

  • But horror films people love to be scared.

  • Everyone loves a good, scary movie.

  • And over the last 20 years in the 21st century, the best horror movies work better as psychological thrillers than they did as like front of the 13th or Halloween.

  • When you look at like the best horror movies of 21st Century, obviously Get Out is like one of the very, very best.

  • But you also have 28 days later from 2003.

  • Directed by Danny Boyle.

  • Mulholland Drive from 2001.

  • David Lynch is not the typical horror movie that you think of when you think of a horror film, but it is very scary, very creepy, very unnerve ing this year, one of the very best movies of 2020 the last movie that I saw in a movie theater, What's the Invisible Man?

  • Oh yeah, it was brilliant.

  • I actually saw that in the theater three times.

  • I mean, that film was one of the very best remakes in modern times.

  • Elizabeth Moss was so great.

  • It was a movie with a message in the V two and the time's up years that we've had in these last three years.

  • But the thing is this.

  • Why do people love to be scared?

  • Why do horror movies thrive?

  • And why have they stayed popular in these last 50 years since, like Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist on?

  • The reason for that is because more than any other experience that you have watching a film, whether it's something that makes you sad or something that makes you laugh no sensory experience it's more engrossing than when you are scared.

  • When you are in survival mode, No part of the brain gets a better workout than when you are scared.

  • You are so committed when you were watching a scary movie like Invisible Man or like the conjuring or like one of my favorite movies of 2000 18, a quiet place, Fantastic.

  • It was ingenious.

  • So these were the films that I think the horror movies that will be the first among the first, in addition to the marvel in the D.

  • C movies to bring people back to the theaters because people love to be scared.

  • Man Scott, I'm totally with you about the theater is making a comeback.
