10. Zack Snyder's Justice League

Isn't it wild that two versions of the same movie can appear on this list in vastly different places? That's the DCEU for you.

While the theatrical version of Justice League was a flat failure of a movie, devoid of heart or emotion, Zack Snyder's cut is the complete opposite. It's larger-than-life, full of emotion - all the emotions - and a testament to the strength of filmmaking involved in Snyder's vision. It's honestly amazing what alternate angles, deleted footage, and a powerful score can accomplish but Zack Snyder's Justice League is the perfect example of what is possible when it comes to allowing the director to make their own movie without interference.

Gone are the corny jokes, replaced by more nuanced character journeys. Gone is the dreadful CGI, replaced with some incredible special effects (and a much-needed redesign for Steppenwolf). And gone are the lacklustre reshoots and eye-rolling lines of dialogue, as Zack Snyder's vision had finally been restored.

It's a bit longer than it needed to be, but the 2021 version of Justice League is the grandiose, epic spectacle that the 2017 version should have been. The DCEU might have been in a much better state if this had been the movie that was released in theaters.
