    So What Do You All Think of Zack Snyder?

    You know part of the project I'm working on now involves compiling some of the more "dramatic" things people say about Zack Snyder when you invoke his name in certain circles (in that regard y'all did not disappoint). I've seen well known and respected critics compare 300 to nazi propaganda, compare Batman V Superman to, and I quote, "submerging religious symbols in urine", and call it "cultural vandalism." Honestly the more I see people with this irrational hatred on the guy and his shit, the more I like him. There's something about a man without a country.

    What the fuck are you talking about? I said the V looks like an upside down triangle, which is a feminine symbol, and that there's a V on Wonder Woman's headband. You're talking about dicks and throwing incel lingo at me. Seriously, what?

    Man of Steel has a lot of Christy stuff going on. He's 33. He's got a god like dad whose also a ghost, he's always doing the whole crucifixion pose. Jesus was Jewish.

    Lol the funny thing is I havent said anything like that anywhere. If I did you would have quoted it. What I actually said was that it doesn't matter whether he's a genius or an idiot, it doesn't change my reading of the film. I'm actually very careful not to make any assumptions about Snyder's intelligence or to imply he's brilliant because A) I don't know him (and neither do you, that is the point) and B ) I find that the first place people go during a discussion like this is to the absurd strawman that just because I think theres something to his films, I must think he's some kind of a genius, which of course he cant be because he makes dumb films, and you know the films are dumb because Snyder is dumb, and you know he's dumb because he makes dumb films. See how that works? Your responses have been very typical. And I'm not even going to start unpacking your fixation with how I apparently see myself Do you think the creative team behind a movie has control over that shit? Like dude, there were rumors an entire marketing team was fired over that second trailer... I'm not sure what you mean by this, but I do take exception to the idea that theres an anti-female or somehow right wing slant to the DCEU. Their initial lineup had movies lead by women and people of color, which a certain other franchise took ten years to even experiment with, and they had a diverse lineup in their initial team...which Marvel sure as hell did not. Also put Tony Stark and Lex Luther next to each other and tell me which franchise is critical of class, capitalism, interventionalism, etc.

    It can be used to symbolize the womb or running water. It's a thing in yonic art. When you make it with your thumb and index finger it means peace. Like somebody who knows about art back me up here, this is a thing. Why do you think Wonder Woman has it on her headband?

    Can we agree that in some contexts a V is used a symbol of femininity?

    It's more that you keep losing your shit and name-calling me over my analysis of a director and the way he adapts comic book movies that I find kind of amusing. And what 'thesis' do you think I've been trying to build?

    You know you keep bringing this up like it's some big AHA moment. I think I was pretty up front about my knowledge of the source material. I think I actually said something like "I haven't read Watchmen in a while, so maybe I'm wrong." Why do you have to undermine me in front of the haters, man? If we Snyder fans are ever going to be taken seriously we need to show a united front.

    Shit, I didn't know your username was Greek. God, I'm so embarrassed, I concede. I'm so sorry to have questioned your credentials. EDIT: Wait, that's right, this has nothing to do with our discussion and I was mocking you for a bad-faith argument, not your knowledge of history. For the record, it's supposed to be lambda, yes, but that symbol is also a phallus, and in this case in particular it's supposed to look like the stripes given out to represent military rank (which is also kind of a phallus).

    Like I said, whenever I point out something I think is interesting in Snyder's movies the inevitable response, rather than actually talking about the movie or the elements in question, comes down to it being impossible because Zack Snyder is utterly incapable of cleverness or subtlety. You even said this, How would one even provide evidence of this? Instead of talking about Snyder and whether or not he's an intelligent human being, since neither of us know him, why don't you explain why you don't think what I described makes sense? Why do you think Bruce Wayne quoted Dick Cheney? Why do you think it was a V instead of vs?

    He literally quotes Dick Cheney...

    I do think he was like Rorschach, that is to say a kind of satirization (though not a comedic one). Like, Snyder used the same shadow-makeup that he used on the Spartans' abs to give him and Superman giant cleft-chins. I also think the V in the title isn't supposed to be short for the word "versus." I think it's a feminine symbol (the inverse of the primitive phallus the Spartans had on their shields). Wonder Woman has the same thing on her headband, and she was standing between Batman and Superman in the big hero shot. I don't think the title was supposed to say 'Batman versus Superman', it was 'Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman: Dawn of Justice.' I really don't think we were meant to know Wonder Woman and Doomsday were in the movie going in.

    Sorry for double post, just saw last night's episode. I read the last line as her finally getting into the car.

    @Ran You know in a very roundabout way, it was actually the videos you and your (I think wife?) did about Game of Thrones that lead me to look at Zack Snyder's films in a certain way. It was something you said about the Martells. You guys should make more btw, really good stuff. So yeah, it's really your fault.
