Army of the Dead

tig notaro saying “you filthy piece of shit” to the copter but it’s me to this movie. in general i’d say i’m a snyder apologist but this is fucking inexcusable. a shameful hodgepodge of the worst tendencies of american zombie movies without a trace of what makes them enjoyable or satisfying. what little gore there is to speak of is either cheap-looking cg or cut away from altogether, the mercifully sparse attempts at political commentary are totally clueless (complete with a white saviour plotline about bautista’s insufferable stepdaughter), and the weird shit they try to do with zombie lore...just no. ultimately it feels like snyder trying to course-correct from his unjustly maligned meathead sincerity, but the cynically snarky tone he’s trying to replace it with is just heinous lmao. oh and there are very few directors who have what it takes to be their own DP and this guy is Not one of them. disappointed is an understatement.
