Paul McCartney admits the one movie he loved after slamming today’s ‘really rubbish’ films

Sir Paul McCartney has been in London today as his photography exhibition opens at the newly refurbished National Portrait Gallery.

The 81-year-old was interviewed on live stream by Stanley Tucci about Paul McCartney Photographs 1963–64: Eyes of the Storm, which is on at the gallery until October 1.

The stars chatted over a selection of Macca’s snaps from 60 years ago when The Beatles were on tour. And during one moment, he started talking about the state of modern cinema. It turns out the music legend is not a fan of current blockbusters, but there is at least one that he enjoyed recently.

McCartney said: “There’s a lot of really rubbish films out these days. Some good ones. Dune’s great. I like Dune!”

The Beatles legend was talking about Denis Villeneuve’s 2021 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel of the same name starring Timothée Chalamet. The blockbuster’s second part is out on November 3.

He added: “No, but there are [rubbish movies today]. They bang them out and they’re not awfully good. That’s the truth.” McCartney did also briefly mentioned Wes Anderson’s new movie Asteroid City, which he seemed to be a fan of.

He’s not the only celebrity who’s criticised modern Hollywood in recent years, with one of his favourite directors Martin Scorsese comparing superhero movies to theme park rides.
