Um… Gareth Edwards isn’t a fucking auteur… Godzilla isn’t The goddamn Deer Hunter. It’s hack-work. Disney doesn’t want to subsume auteurs into its branding machine. It wants young, pliable, inexpensive directors that are fluent in modern genre-filmmaking.

If you wanted to talk about Disney and Auteurs, you should have talked about Brad Bird and that dogshit John Carter of Mars movie. But that’s not relevant.
