Kelly Clarkson Fiercely Defends 'Avengers: Endgame' Against Martin Scorsese's Theme Park Criticism

In a passionate, yet humorous defense, Kelly Clarkson addresses the backlash against one of her favorite superhero films, taking issue with critics and celebrating the movie's memorable moments.

AceShowbiz - Kelly Clarkson isn't holding back when it comes to defending her favorite films, especially the superhero epic, "Avengers: Endgame." In a recently posted video on her daytime talk show's YouTube channel, the celebrated singer took a stand against a series of negative Letterboxd reviews of the 2019 blockbuster.

The video begins with Clarkson calmly addressing the critical reviews of other films, but she becomes animated when "Avengers: Endgame" is mentioned. "Who gave this a bad review?" she exclaimed, before mimicking the critics' voices, "Ugh, it's just these big epic Marvel things. These big epic superhero movies."

She pointed out, "Fans love them. Not everything has to be Shawshank Redemption. Whatever." Her passionate defense made it clear that she has little patience for dismissive attitudes towards the genre.

Clarkson did not hesitate to respond to specific criticisms. One review referenced Martin Scorsese's well-known criticism that Marvel films resemble theme parks more than cinema. Clarkson's retort was as sharp as it was swift, "There's nothing wrong with theme park rides. People love theme parks!" Her spirited rebuttal highlighted her stance that entertainment value should not be underestimated.

Another reviewer's critique that the character Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson, should have had a better snack than a peanut butter sandwich, given the movie's significant budget, drew an even more impassioned response.

Clarkson explained, "I know what you're talking about, and that's when all of her friends freaking disappeared! They're gone! Who cares what she's eating?! Was she supposed to be dining on sushi while all of her friends were gone? Like, I don't know!" She emphasized the emotional and narrative context of the scene, which made the criticism seem trivial.

Throughout the video, Clarkson expressed unequivocal love for "Endgame," giving it a five-star review. She vividly described the climax, recalling, "The end of Endgame was so boss! They all came back! Doctor Strange is incredible. He was just like br, br, br, br with the magic, and like everybody came through and was like, 'What's up, Thanos?' " Clarkson concluded her review with a firm assertion, "It was really great. I loved it."

In her signature humorous style, Clarkson flipped the tables at the end of the clip to review the reviews she had read. "My favorite films are my favorite films," she stated. "I love 'em… And everybody's entitled to their opinion. I was being funny, but, you know, you're wrong. For all you haters out there, I review your reviews one star - half a star! I just took half of it away."

Young audiences who are fans of both Clarkson and Marvel films will relish her spirited defense and see her as a fellow enthusiast who understands their passion for these larger-than-life stories. Clarkson's humorous yet earnest approach resonates, reaffirming the idea that films should be enjoyed for the joy and excitement they bring.
