In past 12 months, James Cameron has criticized a lot of different franchises. He said that "The Force Awakens" was a film that "lacked imagination," he also criticized "Wonder Woman" for being "a step backward" and now he's taking shots at "The Avengers."

Yep, James Cameron has had enough in regards to Marvel movies. That's at least what he told reporters earlier on Friday (via IndieWire): 

“I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon,” Cameron said. “Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”

I don't what's more surprising, Cameron criticizing "The Avengers" even though he's about launch three straight "Avatar" sequels or using the term "Oy." 

Sure, he's right, some of the MCU is quite bland and rote.

Truth be told?  The 2010s have had a wide variety of really good science fiction movies: Ex Machina, Looper, Arrival, Edge of Tomorrow,  Source Code, Melancholia, Attack the Block, Upstream Color, Her, Interstellar, Snowpiercer, Inception, Gravity, Prometheus, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Super 8, Limitless, Under the Skin, Predestination, Dredd, Safety Not Guaranteed, Pacific Rim, The Martian, Midnight Special.

That's 24 good to great Science Fiction films in the last 6 years. I think we can safely assert that we're living in a sort of golden-age for sci-fi. 

The next time I moan and groan about how the only movies coming out anymore are sequels, remakes, and Marvel garbage please LINK TO THIS POST and set me straight. 

No need to stop making comic book movies because it hampers science fiction, there's plenty of room for everyone. Then again,  I’m frankly surprised people aren’t bored to death by Marvel by now. I mean, Jesus.
