    Why Are You Ranking: Worst Domestic Dispute Scenes in Martin Scorsese Films Listed from a Shouting Match to a Punch to the Gut

    The films of Martin Scorsese excite, provoke, and conjure up deep intellectuality, and meditations on the aestheticization of the initiation of acts of brute force. What separates this cinematic master’s art from his peers is that he gives reason for all of the bloodshed, the punches, the kicks, the shootings. Honor, respect, and justice lie at the crux of all of his filmic offerings. But what is most curious about his pictures are the scenes of domestic disputes that populate the screen. Much has been discussed about the mob hits, the deals gone sour, and the ever mounting body counts that cap off a Scorsese Picture. From his inception, Scorsese has always had a thing for ultraviolence. From his student film, The Big Shave (1967), gore and violence have been staples in Mr. Scorsese’s palette. The editing by Thelma Schoonmaker make the scenes of viciousness digestible and artful. Without the cinematography of shooters like Michael Chapman and Michael Ballhaus and Rodrigo Prieto (among others), the domestic violence scenes would not crackle with as much intensity, fire, and excellent delivery. Scorsese ensures the viewer that these scenes of mostly men verbally abusing or even striking women anticipated what the #MeToo Movement is challenging as of this writing. His movies (though not all of them) feature some of the most brutal acts ever to be committed to celluloid or digital picture. So grab your bags of cocaine and pink suits from the cleaners and enjoy, Why Are You Ranking: Worst domestic dispute scenes in Martin Scorsese films from a shouting match to a punch to the gut.

    Possibly Unpopular Opinions

    Since I know not everyone has read the books and more people are familiar with the film adaptations of the Harry Potter series, I will base this edition of my series on the movies. Though it is safe to say, the movie did not sway too far off from how Book Hermione acted.

    Luna Lovegood: Potential to Go Dark Side?

    Luna Lovegood: Potential to Go Dark Side?

    Millions of Harry Potter fans have their own personal favourite character. Personally, mine is Luna Lovegood. As we all know, Luna is a Ravenclaw and she embodies all of what the House stands for. She's intelligent, creative, determined, and works hard in all aspects of her life. Even though she's picked on through most of her Hogwarts life just because she has a different way of looking at the world, she still stays true to herself and doesn't let their taunts change her. She also has her own unique way of looking at her life and everything and everyone around her. She understands what it's like to be the outsider, but she doesn't let it get in her way of what she strives for in life.
