    @Fawbish Sorry man. Yeah I didnt hate it, but I didnt love it either, glad I saw it though. I thought it was a pretty basic origin story, nothing really compelling, but I did really like the nod to Richard Donners Superman, that was cool. I sure as hell didnt cry in any scenes

    I would have to see it again to clarify what the point of the Amazons were, if they were so secluded from Mans world. I also thought that scene was pretty lackluster, and kind of forced, when Diana leaves the island I mean. We knew it was going to happen, but didnt have the impact I was hoping for. I wish we spent more time on the island to be honest. Yeah, they said she was the only child on the island.

    Thats definitely a good interpretation and I appreciate that insightful look. I know this isnt a fair comparison, but Im going to say it anyway, if youre going to do the love message, Harry Potter did it WAY better, I know it was a ton of movies worth, but when you have such a cheesy message, its best to give little tastes of it, rather than one hamfisted bowl to the face, in my opinion anyway. Like I said, Steve Trevor dying took all the emotion out of it for me because it was SO unecessary. Its like he threw his life away for no reason other than for Diana to get pissed and unleash the power of the bracers? That NOBODY mentions why she has them, or as to why they are powerful. Kind of thought that was weird too. I was also hoping that they were going to explain why that outfit was so different than the others. Did they say and I missed it?

    *THIS* movie was about her single-minded quest to stop Ares, which she does... and learns that stopping him didn't fix anything, which gives WW her ultimate purpose going forward: to better mankind (e.g., be a hero). That's the point I was getting at.
    Ah. I wonder if there are going to be scenes in Justice League as to how she has been bettering man kind for almost a hundred years.

    It was very paint by numbers for me, a little of captain america, a little thor, and a lot of stuff I have seen before. I swear to god they went to the same bar cap did to recruit the howling commandos.

    Yes, I thought so too...BUT, that's actually what I wanted DC to do. Learn a little from Marvels example. It's still not enough to make me care about Justice League yet...they need to dig Superman out of the dark and emo trashcan he's been dumped in to get me back on board, but it's definitely a good start. I'll definitely see the next WW movie.

    My hope is still that the success of this movie makes them rethink how they've been handling their other super hero movies.

    I saw it the other night. I put this DC movie behind the Nolands Batman series and Snyders Man Of Steel. They did a good job and the wife was entertained.

    Couldnt agree more. There is no way in hell Im paying money to see Justice League in theaters. I guess WW was just a little late to the party for me. Yeah, but with ZS, Superman is probably going to be the villain, cause the guy is clueless on why people like Superman.

    Agree again. One can hope at least.

    I know a lot of people are comparing this to Marvel and it being a rehash of different source material but I didn't get that all all (with the exception of the recruiting scene). IMHO they got what I think Wonder Woman was/is. My only real complaint was the special fx were spotty at time. But I thought Gadot and Pine nailed it.

    Yeah that scene at the end where they blow up the airplane hanger had a very ps4 vibe to it. So nobody else thought Steve Trevors death was unnecessary?

    IMO they blew up the factory not because it had any gas in it but because all the gas making stuff was in it. They probably could not blow up the plane on the ground.I wonder why he did not jump out (Did they have parachutes in WW1? He did not use it when he crashed the 1st time) but I understood it.

    Completely, but being a comic book the chances of his death being lasting are about 0%

    As a comic reader you could be right but I dont think so. I wish they just would have made more sense with his death I guess is what Im saying. I know it needed to happen because of the lesson/plot I just wish it was executed better.
