Re: The Official Zack Snyder Directs Everything Thread - Part 1
I like Watchmen a lot. But there is definitely some things completely wrong with it. Like how The Comedian, Night Owl, Silk Spectre and Rorschach fight like borderline superhuman comparable with Cap in TWS. Yea their fight scenes looked cool and bad ass... but that's completely missing the point. They are not supposed to be cool and bad ass.
But the Dr M origin sequence makes up for it.
I do think Snyder has difficulty communicating his themes though. Sucker Punch is the biggest example of that. All his interviews leading up to it were about how it's a film about strong women overcoming oppressive men etc. That was all lip service. The film itself has them running around like anime sex dolls taking orders from a man.
People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes
