Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★

An absolutely blatant ALIENS ripoff that somehow has barely any good parts. Given that it's Snyder this is of course wildly bloated, but also given that it's Snyder it's shockingly dull, surprisingly cheap and crummy-looking (he's serving as his own DP but shoots everything in this generic televisual shallow focus), and almost entirely bereft of his splashy tableaux. Didn't have a high bar, still a real disappointment.
