Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead can be seen as a homecoming of sorts for the filmmaker. After years of dark and gloomy comic book adaptations (from a moody Man of Steel to a CrossFit Batman), Snyder’s latest film is his first original IP and non-superhero film since Sucker Punch in 2011. It’s also his second ever zombie apocalypse movie since his directorial debut, Dawn of the Dead in 2004. But even the good-will gained from the surprisingly refreshing Snyder Cut of Justice League earlier this year (and the noticeable absence of a lot of Snyder’s more distracting director traits), Army of the Dead still falls short of what it could have been.

- A Quiet Place Part II, 2020 - ★★★½ May 27, 2021Very cool tension that separates itself from the original often enough while still retaining the novelty that made the first one so enjoyable. The prologue showing the beginning of it all was well done. The addition of Cillian Murphy to the cast is great. Like the first one, it ends way too abruptly.
- Cruella, 2021 - ★★★ May 26, 2021In usually completely disinterested in these villain origin story movies. I think it's a pretty boring trend and making villains into antiheroes just really does nothing for me.On that note, Cruella is slightly better than I expected it to be. Emma Stone's performance is a lot of fun and, although some of the humor falls super flat, the supporting […]
