Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Movie Review: A Colossal Train Wreck

Harvey Dent once said this – “The night is the darkest just before dawn.” This movie is about the darkest part. As far as summer blockbusters go, this was the biggest showdown of all.

Some 5 hours into the film, Batman, sitting in his Batwing, barks at Alfred, “What is Happening?”.. The reply over his comms is “How best to describe it?”.. Well, that should tell you about the film!

Or, let me say, what most people expected from it.Continue reading “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Movie Review: A Colossal Train Wreck”

In Conversation with Zack Snyder, Director of Man Of Steel

Superman making his debut in Action Comics No....

No one needs any introduction about Zack Snyder, director of films like 300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch and of course most recently Man of Steel.

Here is Zack Snyder talking exclusively about Superman and Man of Steel.

What is it about Superman that has kept him relevant for 75 years?

He is the first and most powerful and most cleanly mythological superhero.  He can fly. He’s got super strength.  He wasn’t turned out in a laboratory accident or anything weird like that.  It’s like he’s a native superhero, you know.  A lot of those superheroes had to buy their superheroeness.  They had to build a suit or get bit by a spider or something like that where Superman is like, “No, that’s just how it works. This is how I am.  I wish I wasn’t Superman, but I am, so it’s pretty cool.” 

What does it mean for you to be directing the film? 

I love the character and I love the world building concepts of making, creating this giant universe.  It’s really fun to have gotten to this point where people can just enjoy it and spend 2 hours and 20 minutes in the world of Superman. It’s fun for me to let the movie loose like that.Continue reading “In Conversation with Zack Snyder, Director of Man Of Steel”
