Nolan's films are 'grounded in reality', but that doesn't mean they're as 'realistic' as they're made out to be.

Also, you can impart a sense of realism to something and still have it deal with the fantastical, which is exactly what Synder did with 300 and, judging by what I've seen and heard about them, Watchmen, Sucker Punch, and MoS.

One last thing: Before anyone says that Sucker Punch wasn't a good film, its quality has nothing at all to do with Snyder's directorial and filmmaking style and approach.

"There is no "supposed to be." It's an adaptation, a word that literally means change. Why bother making a new version if it doesn't offer a fresh approach?" - Christopher L. Bennett
