the thing i don't really get is how people who talk about how snyder is some fascist, crypto or otherwise, and how he has this toxic fanbase who think his poo poo movies are great, also tend to be the people who talk about wandavision like 'okay sure it's about two no-name characters and it takes four episodes to get good, but it's got all these connections to the MCU and you'll be sad if you miss out'

like what the gently caress lmao

Marvel sucks too. The ubiquitousness of toxic comic-book and superhero fandom (media originally for children and adolescents) among presumably grown adults exemplifies a deeply alienated society and culture in which we live. The particular fanaticism of Zack Snyder’s personality cult is only one — albeit disturbing — iteration of this. Snyder’s love of Ayn Rand novels deserves the ridicule it receives as well.

Alan Moore detailed this alarming phenomenon perfectly:


Some more accurate commentary on this trend:

And, of course, Martin Scorsese nailed it in his NYT op-ed: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/04/opinion/martin-scorsese-marvel.html

Dawn Of The Dead is Snyder’s only good film.

Zack was raised a Christian Scientist so it should surprise literally no one that hes often drawing from religious iconography.

I agree about TDKR, it's also my favorite for all the reasons you posted (especially the climb scene and the score), and I love the operatic melodrama of it. I think there's something to why people who like TDKR also seem to like BvS.

Could it be they’re both bad films?

Darko posted:

I think TDKR is the best, as it's all about honoring and merging all aspects of the character and giving him a send-off. The story is a mix of 5 classic Batman comic runs, and the movie contains pieces of the Animated Series, Adam West, etc. Blake merges multiple aspects of Robin's into one, so on and so forth. It also has the best score, and the climbing out of a Lazarus Pit scene is definitely the best sequence in all three films.

Dark Knight is definitely the weakest, but its also the least comic booky, which is probably why it is. Begins and Rises wear it on their sleeves I'm a way the middle one doesn't.

lol Snyder threads never fail with the hot takes.

TDK > BB > TDKR. Rises is terrible. The movie went full shlock once Bane “took over” and occupied the city. Talia was so obvious from the start. Decent score & cinematography, though.

Finally finished this movie, and it is undoubtedly one of the worst and most pretentious films I’ve ever seen. It possessed the usual excess of Snyder CGI/slo-mo canvassed over a uniquely tedious, incoherent, melodramatic narrative the Christian Scientist director is famous for creating. It was so dull I had to watch it one hour at a time in order to make it through. Leto’s Joker did look better than that Suicide Squad version of his a few years back; too bad about the horrendous dialogue, though.

2/10
