Trailer Into REaction: Zach Snyder’s Justice League | Official Black and White Trailer

I find most everything about Zach Snyder’s Justice League frustrating – never mind the trailer being black and white – and to be honest, a little off-putting. First, there’s no such thing as “Zach Snyder’s Justice League” because that’s like saying “Joss Whedon’s Avengers” or “The Russo Brothers’ Civil War.” It places a director above […]

Trailer Into Reaction: Brightburn (2019) | Final Trailer

The final trailer for Brightburn dropped yesterday, and I’m genuinely curious about the movie because I get the feeling that Zach Snyder really wished he could have treated his version of Superman in a similar fashion. Though that’s not quite fair because hate isn’t the opposite of love, apathy is and that was the Snyder’s […]

Snyder directed 2004’s reboot of Dawn Of The Dead […]

Save Daredevil!

Admittedly, most petitions of this nature are a waste of time, such as the effort to release the Zach Snyder cut of Justice League. First, there’s no evidence such a thing actually exists (there was likely an assembly cut of the movie shown to Warner Bros executives at various times, to give them an idea where […]
