If an online conversation includes the name Zack Snyder, it will likely stoke a hornet's nest of debate and more than a few insults.
Even if the repeated campaigns to have the SnyderVerse resurrected and restored are bordering on delusional at this point, he's still as polarizing as they come for a multitude of reasons, though one spicy take may not be as blatant as you might imagine.
Snyder has never been any better behind the camera than in his very first film, which was of course the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, according to several replies. The screenplay, though, has been credited for elevating the content, which was penned by none other than noted SnyderVerse foe James Gunn.
Snyder's top-rated film on Rotten Tomatoes remains Dawn of the Dead, so there's evidence to support it, and it's undisputed that his more experimentally-driven films occasionally wander into self-indulgent territory, without mentioning his fondness for an excessively lengthy running time.
Although it's sexist in some corners of the social media sphere, you can understand the intent behind Snyder's two-decade absence, despite being given greater freedom and massive budgets to do virtually anything he desires, especially now that he's at Netflix.
