Producer: Hey, Zach, what do you want to make a movie about?

Zach Snyder: Umm. Dragons.

Producer: I dunno about that, see people don’t really flock to dragon-movies as much as you might think, even if a bald, wild-eyed Matthew McCaunahey takes one out with an axe in mid-air.

Zach Snyder: You didn’t let me finish. 

Producer: Oh? You have some fresh twist on the dragon genre?

Zach Snyder: No, you didn’t let me finish my list. I’d like the movie to be about dragons, samurais, robots, robot samurais, zombie robots, nazis, exploding blimps and insane asylums. And…I dunno, maybe a nazi samurai? Working on it.

Producer: …

Zach Snyder: Oh! And hot girls.

Producer: Ahh, NOW we’re talking.

Zach Snyder: Yeah! Hot, underage girls in fetish gear.

Producer: …Goddamn it, Snyder.

    There are many things that a person could say about Zach Snyder, but one thing is ultimately inescapable:

    he sure as shit knows how to make things look awesome.

    The biggest problem with Reign of Dragons (and there were many) was that McConaughey did NOT take one out in midair. I was at my most vulnerable, I thought maybe the movie had redeemed itself by being anything like it’s promise, but not, it wasn’t to be.

    Also, it’s weird as hell that the EXTREMELY SPECIFIC LOCATION in the trailer is an hour from me, apparently.

    The best part of that movie (Reign of FIRE) was the part where they were telling Star Wars to the little kids.

  4. Jeff Holland says:

    Yeah, I may be misremembering the result, but the fact is, Macaunahey (I refuse to look up the spelling) did jump off a building, with an axe, screaming, at a dragon. I don’t even care if he’s successful, that’s enough for me!

    But yes, the Star Wars reenactment was the best part (and lookit that, early Gerard Butler!).

    Hell, I know it’s fun to hate on that movie, but I think that falls into the “Ghost Rider Blind Spot” territory of my brain.
