Both he and Diana had something important to bring to the table in the climax. Despite Diana being a literal god, and Steve a mere mortal. Their actions are still vital the plot, and to saving the day.


Yeah, I don't see the equality there. That happens in loads of films, and doesn't equate to equality.

I am not sure how their actions amount to equality specially when one of them is God who

Not supporting Algren's claim here BTW.

I'll be neutral on that topic ;). I don't think it was enough but I also don't think it was completely lacking.

People are definitely pushing a feminist agenda on the film, but its more about how the strong treat the weak. Like most every other superhero movie.

So you are essentially saying that both characters, male and female, were equally important to the outcome of the film, which amounts to equality. But, it's just, I don't see it that way ... for me, the female character had to be a "god" in order to contribute to the result, whereas the male character could just be a regular guy. Now, I don't know about you, but that doesn't seem like equality or even feminism. It is even worse in promoting those ideals than a Transformers movie. At least Megan Fox didn't need to be a "god" to help save the day.

Post Re: Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman was pretty generic.

I haven't gone through this thread, but it was as superficial as most of these superhero movies.

Some vague, illogical bad guy, some hokey action pieces, some cheesy ill-placed romance...

Wonder Woman, or whatever her name is again, being clueless was also grating. Is she the counterpart to Superman? Because he is in the same vein- at least the one I am referring to is Superman Returns.

All in all, overrated. Don't really see it as a feminist movie or whatever it has been crowned. I'm sure others could make a much better movie. This was out of the factory like the rest of them, substituting a woman for a man, but even then, not really doing her justice by making her a bit of a simpleton.

At least it exists so women can move forward a little, but it took how many years to get a proper superhero movie out? (Maybe they have adhered to the comics, but honestly most of these movies are little more than trashy cartoon storylines.)

Also, it's the best of the DC crap, but that's not saying much.

Man of Steel was terrible, Suicide Squad was a joke. Didn't watch BVS, and of course won't watch Justice League which looks lol.

I semi-watched this again on my flight back from the US. It was on another guy's screen and I didn't want to watch anything so just stared at this for two hours. Though it's really not very good, it is much more watchable without sound! But I still don't get the hype other than to make a statement on equality. That finale goes ... on ... for ... a ... fuck ... ing ... age. It must be 40 minutes. And it is incredibly lame. Oh, and I paid close attention to the no man's land scene that everyone is jizzing over. The mind truly boggles how people find such an averagely shot, averagely acted, averagely styled, averagely enhanced, and averagely scored scene so great.

This is one of the movies where I feel the sequel will see a big decline both in terms of critical and audience reception. Though it will open huge enough to get a respectable total.

Maybe, but I don’t see any read to draw that conclusion already.

Its not a conclusion by any news but my feeling that we will see a big decline for the sequel.

It’s positioned to be the big movie besides Frozen 2 (which shouldn’t affect it too much as it’s animated and live action and animated blockbusters coexist just fine) until Star Wars. I think it should have respectable legs unless it’s WOM is horrible, and considering how much WW lore there is left untapped I find that unlikely. And the OW will be over 150m. I’d say most likely it opens on par with the upper tier Marvel films, considering its legs and total was way more than GOTG, which almost hit 150m OW.

But this is a review thread.

That.

Now the legs probably won't be anywhere near as good a second time around, but I think zwack has the opening weekend in the right range. The opening weekend should be big enough to get it near 400m again. And if the movie is very good once again, maybe the legs will be similar. The tickets sold could rival that of the Superman (1978). But, you usually only capture lightning once.

I was a little underwhelmed when i first saw this in a theatre but watching it at home a few months later I came to enjoy it much more and now consider it possibly better than anything DC since TDK and up there with some of the better Marvel films.

The way you describe it, you expect it to do like 130/325?

I think that's certainly a possibility, but it doing 150/450 is just as likely.

I'll await a trailer to see what they mustered up and how the reception to that's going to be.

Yes, because the site just cannot keep up with the amount of reviews this 7-month old film is still getting, and they might get lost in the discussion.

We can discuss this in the sequel thread more appropriately where more people might chime in the conversation.

I like your first prediction but I think the OW won't be as big. The first movie also had a lot going for it in terms of first solo female superhero movie and that a lot of people were wanting to see a WW movie which is why it did so big and had great legs.

It legs where sooooo good, that made it into an extremely popular film. I think it's very hard to see not a big (a la 130m) opening for this.

It's just bound to increase, and 130m is conservative with that I think.

I'm not considering release date or competition though.
