I'd argue the greatest he's ever come to a achieving greatness is 3:10 to Yuma, but that was made without the corporate interests tied to a project like Wolverine. Aronofsky has clout with the studio, Mangold on the other hand...
I really don't know what to expect from Aronofsky.
I actually haven't seen most of his movies. I think the only one I've seen was Requiem For A Dream
, and I wasn't a fan. I haven't seen his other films. What I have seen of The Fountain
was kinda weird. But I didn't see that movie all the way through, so I couldn't form a proper opinion.
Not pulling for one over the other. I guess I just never really fanboy'd out for Aronofsky.
