Sybil shows how much smarter she is than you with a movie that’s more clever than you think it is.

    Haha awesome analysis, god i thought 300 the movie was racist trash but like your subversive take on it, makes me think more about what it was about other than supermen crushing subhuman hordes. I think Americans see there military as being like the Spartans. The Persians are treated savagely and I hate Frank Miller for trying to reinforce this.
    I may be wrong about Americans feeling this.

    Honestly I don’t really hate Zack Snyder, but I don’t think he’s a great director. He’s not bad, but he’s not that great either. And yeah I will not claim Watchmen was this horrible film, cause there are aspects of it, that I dug a lot. And for me, I didn’t care he changed the ending, it still made sense and I got why they changed (that sex scene on the other hand was terrible, sorry but it was). But the problem was, at the end of it all, it left me feeling cold and hollow. I mean Snyder is great with visuals and editing, and all the technical stuff. But his films kind of lack an emotional core, a warmth. He’s mostly show, and not a lot of interesting substance personally. As for 300 (another Snyder film with a somewhat pointless and silly sex scene) I don’t know, I’ve only seen it once and I suppose it could read as one big subversive take on masculinity, but again I would have to watch it again, and don’t really have much of a desire. And while I was very meh about Sucker Punch, the zombie nazi scene and the scene with the dragon was actually pretty cool. And Oscar Isaac with eye liner, was nice as well…

    P.S. I get the distaste of Dany, she kind of reads as a Mary Sue, but I can’t help but enjoy her. I just like she doesn’t have to throw away her femininity in order to be shown as a powerful character. She’s shown as strong through her perseverance and boldness, not the fact that she had to act like a man.

    Always a joy to see one of your videos up, but…

    dear Sybil will you defend the painfully and unnecessarily long sex scene in Watchmen? I was beyond annoyed/bored a third of the way through it.
