Everyone is well aware that with anything we say or do, there will always be positive and negative feedback. It doesn’t matter how great a feat you accomplish, someone will always be picking at the minute details.
Zack Snyder is no exception, and Huffington Post was able to sit down with the director to ask Zack and his wife, Deborah Snyder, a few questions in regards to some of those comments, as well as their upcoming movie, 300: Rise of an Empire. Here’s a snippet of that interview:
HuffPost: Over your career, do you feel critics have been fair to you?
Zack Snyder: I don’t know. You know, it’s a funny thing that you should bring it up. I always feel like — and I always believe the movies I’ve made are smarter than the way they are perceived by sort of mass culture and by the critics. We set out to make smarter movies than what they’re perceived to be, do you know what I mean?
Deborah Snyder: I think it has to do, in a way, because I’ve thought about it, and I think some of it maybe is that if they have a visual style — if they’re from a graphic novel, if they happen to be genre — I think people sometimes don’t want to look to see if there’s a deeper meaning. To see if there’s symbolism, to see if there’s other things going on. It’s easier to dismiss it and say, “Oh, it looks like a video game.”
Zack Snyder: And, also, “It looks like a video game.” Well, maybe it’s supposed to look like a video game.
