Default Re: Are Superhero Films True Art?

Of course they are, they fit well with the literal definition. To try to limit the notion of what's art in the way some does is just ridiculous to me. Many that put these limits on what art is also seem completely unaware of how, and in what context, many pieces of historical art were created. Collaborations, commissions, products, etc. All was going on back then just as it is now.

These discussions are just here because some people try to make some things out to be fancier than others, rather than there really being a proper fundamental difference. Often the kind of people that like to talk about the intellectual aspect of what they like, even though venturing into the sciences is a much more significant venture into the intellectual.
