After the Hype

After the Hype

by

An in-depth look at filmmakers’ careers through their early or obscure work.

This week on the show we’re continuing our deep dive into the “Snyder Cuts” by looking at a film that could have really used a longer cut – Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’hoole. As you watch the film you can see why Zack Snyder directed this. Beautiful landscapes, vivid characters, punchy pop songs – it’s all there! The big problem is that it’s an adaptation of a popular children’s book series, and like with most of these things, the problems stem from trying to cram as much stuff in as short a runtime as possible. Still enjoyable? Find out in the episode!
