Fortunately, the Screen Junkies team is here to help you sort out your thoughts. Watch the Watchmen Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Last week I watched Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. I’m sure you’ve read about this — it’s Zack Snyder’s three-hour director’s cut of the film. The Ultimate Edition has had quite a few positive reviews as opposed to the half-hour shorter theatrical cut which was eviscerated by critics and moviegoers. The Ultimate Edition is a better film than the theatrical cut, I’m sure of that. So why did they release an inferior version of the movie in theaters? Why can’t the Zack Snyder release his director’s cuts theatrically?

WonderCon kicks off Friday for three days of comic convention madness. Movie wise, there isn’t a ton going on, but there’s always fun to be had and lots of exclusive merchandise to covet.

The Avengers are Disney/Marvel, the Watchmen are Warner Bros./DC, and never the twain shall meet. But if they did, the results might look a little something like this.
YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has cut together a new trailer for 2012’s Avengers, done in the style of Zack Snyder‘s Watchmen. It’s surprisingly effective sum-up of Snyder’s style, even though Snyder himself had nothing to do with it. Watch the Avengers Watchmen trailer mashup after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Years later, people still have strong opinions about Zack Snyder‘s film of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen. The picture starred Patrick Wilson as Dan Dreiberg, who takes up the crime-fighting mantle of his idol, the Nite Owl. Snyder’s film was particularly faithful to the original comic story, which became a point of criticism. Wilson recently did a Q&A with comedian Patton Oswalt, and an audience member asked about Oswalt and Wilson’s respective opinions on the film. The conversation is caught on video, and a few good points are made. Watch Patton Oswalt and Patrick Wilson discuss Watchmen below.

Love Zack Snyder or hate him, it’s hard to deny he’s got a distinctive visual style. (Indeed, detractors often argue that’s his problem — that he’s nothing but style.) And one of his very favorite go-tos from his bag of tricks is tweaking the pace of the action onscreen.
Dude loves himself some slow-mo, as demonstrated by this new supercut. He loves it so much, the video is even set to Emily Browning‘s slowed-down version of the Eurythmics‘ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” from Snyder’s Sucker Punch. Watch the Zack Snyder slow motion supercut after the jump.
