Really terrible movie. Indubitably, I too share a marvelous fascination with post-modern 1850's Peruvian cinema. That would’ve been a great idea. [–]Naggins 28 points29 points30 points 3 years ago (0 children). But your personal dislike of the film, for whatever reason, doesn't change the point that the plot, themes, and craft are functional: you can say that you don't care about teamwork as a theme, but you can't say that this movie failed to depict teamwork as a theme. Considering diving into a movie binge and looking for suggestions for what YOU would consider 5-10 personal 'Must See' mainstream movies in the past 10-15 years. The "fish out of water" gags in addition to all of the other superhero tropes are present in both films. You may enjoy watching T5 but that doesn't mean it's a good movie; there isn't really anything there beyond just lights and sounds on a screen. "What's up dude?"

Can you explain that? It's generic block busters trash without artistic merit. “Care to join me? But the story? So Wonder Woman was ok. [–]lil_pup 7 points8 points9 points 3 years ago (0 children).

Ares has a pretty good Reddit RT, but … What was the benefit? Hot New Top Rising. [–]Positive_pressure 6 points7 points8 points 3 years ago (0 children). I've felt that part of the marketing tactic was to present wonder woman as the first truly feminist female super hero movie, a turning point. Both her and Steve's naivety made them seem annoying to me more than anything too. Wonder Woman's felt like it could've been out of a TV show like Xena with better production quality. The tech business isn't all bad, it does lower the cost of entry. my subreddits. The presence of a villain nation is in conflict with the main theme of the movie. I think Batman Begins is good, The Dark Knight is great (made a video essay about it a while ago on why I think it works great as a post-9/11 allegory). There's a lot I disagree with Armond White about, haha, [–]utopista114 0 points1 point2 points 3 years ago (2 children). Suicide squad definitely put that statement to the test though lol. Their plots suffer major issues as OP pointed out and I legitimately don't feel either has strong feminist undertones except for the obvious focus on female characters. We have an isolated island, a protective mother, our typical hero in Diana who is the key to everything, a training sequence and then an outside influence prompting her to go on her quest. [–]matzamafia 3 points4 points5 points 3 years ago (0 children). I think most of the Marvel movies are dumb and boring, and all of the other DC cinematic universe movies so far are dumb and boring.

A bigger war is coming historically, so if Ares is the reason behind human conflict on that scale, and WW has taken him down...what’s up with World War II? I can only speak for Netflix but I've been very impressed by some of their original series' and it's phenomenally more convenient and comfortable than watching things on TV. Patty Jenkins had a lot more creative control over Wonder Woman 1984, as evidenced by the fact that she co-wrote the screenplay alongside Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham. Did you even watch it? You do realize this is a sub for critical discussion right? They needed no encouragement from him, etc. Who let her skip leg day before filming this?

There are exceptions for universally panned/hated films. [–]gdan95 0 points1 point2 points 3 years ago* (0 children). The subsequent scene in the village then would have both German, French and English soldiers hanging out together (sort of like the true events of the Christmas Truce), which maybe could have led to a more interesting finale where Ares gets everyone to start fighting again. It just made it really hard for me to take her serious as a warrior character who’s going to save humanity, which sort of brings me to my next point; Diana believed mankind was good by nature, but corrupted by Ares, which literally everyone except her knows is not true. Sure, it’s unexpected but it’s goofy that they chose that old guy with a mustache to play the villain. It would have been acceptable had the movie been overall better, but really it was all just a misogynist, misandrist attempt at creating a feminist phenomenon. [–]PertKelly 0 points1 point2 points 3 years ago (9 children). Of course that also lost some weight when both sides were hugging each other after Ares “dies” at the end. Or talking about marriage like it's a stupid system. "So are you in any of these movies?" It won't be Suicide Squad bad, but it will fall flat. [–]MikeArrow 7 points8 points9 points 3 years ago (0 children). [–]nabster100 1 point2 points3 points 3 years ago (0 children). Stupid. Also to be honest the moment she looked up from the trench in No Man's Land would've been the death of her, yet she got the time to deflect a couple of bullets, pull out her shield and somehow didn't have a stray or two hit her in the legs. From my understanding a lot of people really reacted strongly against the tonal shift between Man of Steel and the older Christopher Reeves movies. I think it fits in with love(which Wonder Woman is a symbol of) killing the darkness in men(which Ares is symbolised with). I've thought since I first saw it that it was a fairly poor film that is made good simply through the powerful charism that Gal Gadet and Chris Pine have. what do civilians have to do with anything? Yeah, perhaps. So I think it's only fair that other people push back against that. I have no problem with people saying they really enjoyed this film--I enjoy movies not worth their run time in pennies--but have some self awareness at least to recognize that enjoying a film doesn't make it good. [–]beeswaxx 37 points38 points39 points 3 years ago (31 children), you sound rather pompous, I have seen plenty of blockbusters with artistic merit, [–]SirSoliloquy 25 points26 points27 points 3 years ago* (1 child).

Might have pissed off some comic book fans though. * You might be surprised how entertaining some of these videos can be.

When society breaks down we're rooting for a billionaire who beats up criminals with his hands, instead of investing his money in reforming the institutions that lead to widespread crime. He propped up a sign that says "Movie Night- Open To All" in front of the Ares cabin door. There's something to be said about that. Ares was born millennia ago to Zeus, King of the Old Gods, as one of the latter's many godly children. This point is made, then immediately discounted by Ares showing up and reenforcing all of Dianas simple ideas about good and evil. WW is good mostly because of the second act and Chris Pine's heroic ending. Clearly it's just for modern American audiences, but in my opinion, it looks so much like the makeup of our time that I found it jarring, almost as much as watching, say, Star Trek from the 60s and seeing the big hair and other fashion from that time. I can't even say how to fix it, but the way it's written it comes across as very by the book to me. card. Add to that, the timing of its release (the political situation in America and abroad) people were watching it through a very emotional lens and it provided a sense of escapism, if not catharsis. That's why everything on the top grossing list are super WIDE appeal films. I think they have the better characters, but they don't know what to do with them. Also, I guess it could have worked without a big bad. The main protagonist, Rosa, is portrayed by Jade Olieberg. You know that Wonder Woman motion picture? Your complaints highlight the greater issue with the film though. Take that out and the movie doesn't sell. We finally got our hands on all of the BAF pieces from McFarlane Toys allowing us to build the deadly Batman: The Merciless figure In an alternate … he asks, plopping down next to him. It’s the female director playing favorites with her female lead and insulting the rest of the industry as well as the audience in saying that a pregnant woman has just as much value as a working individual, which is just untrue. The movie was entertaining but that aspect of her character made it SO hard for me to relate to her and suspend my disbelief. While I agree that trying to evaluate the artistic merit of today's tentpole blockbusters, especially superhero films, is going to be a shallow endeavor, I think its still important to analyze them. Aside the point, one thing I had a confusion over was Ares killing Zeus? Carol Cohn inspired gender commentary? [–]bhindblueyes430 1 point2 points3 points 3 years ago (1 child). I thought the characters awkwardness about sex was a little weird. Wonder Woman is just a clumsy but necessary start down that path. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvCKoLRXGj8, TrueFilm has a hot take about Wonder Woman. And what was Ares’ plan really? Like B movie awful, like HOW DID THIS GET INTO A MAJOR FILM bad. Maybe open your mind a bit and you might see what other people see. The combination of better representation and the fact that comic book films have such mass appeal (now with even more appeal for female fans) meant the film was well-received. Your thoughts on Taste of Cherry (1997) ending? [–]spangg 11 points12 points13 points 3 years ago (1 child). Honestly ww came through mostly as a stubborn naive child. Discussing meaning in pop objects. I strongly disagree with putting WW in the same category as other superhero films. I am not trying the say the movie was a messiah and has a lot of flaws but for what it was. There's always, always a post about how 'insert popular movie' isn't actually as good as everything thinks it is. Here's a movie that shows women can be superheros and be just as exciting (and profitable) and men in those roles. One person's masterpiece is another person's trash. The factors being such as her having no social awareness and the fact that you disliked the part that she believed that Ares was at fault for everything. More feminist? I would say the same is true for John Wick, another "low" action film. Wonder Woman really isn't that great (self.TrueFilm).
