I'm not sure Snyder has ever made a good movie. Visually impressive, occasionally even spectacular, but not actually good from a storyline or acting standpoint.

I liked his Dawn of the Dead remake and I'm a big fan of the original. So that is saying something.

Looking at his IMDB, I can't say there were really any great movies he directed. Only one I really enjoyed and rewatch is Man of Steel and even that one wasn't great.

Nothing beats the Savini remake of Night of the Living Dead!

Has anyone tried to remake Return of the Living Dead? Absolute classic and holds up well.

That would be cool but seems like zombies may be overplayed by now.

Original Dawn of the Dead is my favorite.
We used to go see it at the midnight movies all the time.
Se re-watchable. It's now stuck in who-has-the-rights hell.
Which is why it's never on.

I just learned that Elizabeth Olsen is the younger sister of the Olsons. How did I not know that...?

I only learned that about two weeks ago, so you're not alone. But it's not like I'm much of a fan.

I'm enjoying her in WandaVision. Never made an impression on me before.

Maybe the sitcom format just works for her family.

Well I'm more of a Superman fan instead of a Watchmen fan so I like MoS more.
understand that. i guess i don’t get the comment above yours about how nothing Snyder has done features good acting or writing. maybe i’ve romanticized Watchmen too much, but I always thought the acting was fantastic; and I thought the film was very well done overall.

I thought Watchman was a superior film to MOS and even it wasn't a great Watchman movie. MOS fell mostly flat for me.

I realize my taste here might not line up with the general public as I think Superman Returns is an underrated movie in the franchise.
