Well if this doesn't get all the young girls playing like a badass with the young boys I am not sure what will  ;D

Damn fine trailer, and the one line "what I do is not up to you" is a PERFECT Wonder Woman line. With the action shown, I think all will believe that Wonder Woman was and is the reason why women can be superheroes!

OMG that is AWESOME!!!!

Is it too much to hope DC got this one right?

Man, that last trailer was fantastic, too!! Such high hopes that I honestly think will be met with this DC movie!!!

Really glad to hear that the new Wonder Woman movie is getting such good reviews. Not only because it is nice to see a DC movie get off the schneid, it is also very nice to see that a woman hero, that deserves attention, is getting some notice!!!

Yes, that is awesome to me  :)

EDIT - and to all the men bitching and groaning about how they had a premiere for women only ... shut up. Just shut up. Go chill at a strip club ... there, you can all be "men"

i took my daughter, my niece and my nephew to see this at the local IMAX today.  in a word....AWESOME!  In my opinion, the best DC movie to date and yes, I thought it was even better than The Dark Knight. 

I actually got goosebumps watching one of the fight scenes.  Gal Gadot makes a stunning, strong and believable WW.  Chris Pine was excellent.  The Golden Lasso was done oh so right. 

it really is a great film.  go.  go now.

Took my daughter to see Wonder Woman tonight.  Great movie.  A little long and I thought the end was a little too over the top but those are minor complaints.  DC has a hit with this one and I'm really glad.  I've always felt that Wonder Woman was a top tier hero and could carry a film if the character was treated right.  They did a perfect job and Gadot is an amazing Wonder Woman.

Four thumbs up.  Two from me and two from best girl.

This has (and was going to) jump Guardians for me, as for what my next movie will be. I wasted my guardians movie day on Aliens: Covenant about a week ago  >:( so now WW will also slide in front.

And Aliens wasn't a waste, I enjoyed it, but it was not as scary as the wife and I had hoped.
 :-\

Wow, Perry, way to turn a DC WW movie thread inside out and start discussing Marvel and Dark Horse stuff.

You ass
 >:(


 :D

(Sorry)

Yes, I look forward to seeing this and am very happy about the praise it is getting.
 :)

Absolutely love this movie. I'm getting much more empathetic as I age (and, well, fatherhood), and I teared up several times. Just...wonderful :)

So very pleased and happy with this movie. Can't wait to go again!!


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Mitch on June 07, 2017, 12:00:05 PM
My favorite DC movie to date.  LOVE this movie.   

So many great scenes.  I especially enjoyed one of the film's several Crowning Moments of Awesome when...
...they were in the trench on the front and Diana told Steve that she needed to save the villagers, and he told her that she couldn't just run out there into No Man's Land.  I thought to myself "Awwww yeeeeahh, baby.  Now it's on."  Sure enough, up the ladder she goes, and cue the slo-mo glorious hero shot.  Absolutely goose-bumping brilliant. 

Feel free to disagree, but for me Gal Gadot is beyond perfect as WW; she is ICONIC.  Iconic like the way I hear Kevin Conroy's voice in my head when I read Batman.  Like when I pretended to be Superman as a kid, I was really pretending to be Christopher Reeve as Superman.  Love her.  :-*

Another thing that struck me was that among the new cinematic Justice Leaguers that we've seen, Wonder Woman alone is a true hero.  She inspires hope in her comrades and the people she tries to save.  Batman seems to inspire in people as much fear as the criminals whose heads he cracks against the walls.  And the people who look up to the scowling, brooding Superman seem just as likely to be saved from disaster as they are to have him accidentally drop an office building on them in the middle of a fight.

Oh, and I love Gal Gadot.  Have I mentioned that yet?  ;D


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jeff on June 07, 2017, 12:44:09 PM
I totally agree about how great this movie is and how perfect Gal Gadot is for this role.  That scene you mentioned is absolutely one of the great scenes in the movie.  I loved it too.

I think I still liked Guardians better if I had to pick because, well, I am Groot.

But fortunately I don't have to pick and can just say these two movies are awesome.  Go see them.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN

I think it would be cool if, instead of a blank box, the spoiler boxes would read "I am Groot" until you clicked on them.  ;D


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jimmy T on June 10, 2017, 10:29:29 AM
Honestly, if asked to pick between GotG2 and WW, oh, I pick WW.

This hit me in such an iconic way, the way that Superman:The Movie, Batman (1989), and even the first Spider-man (2001) hits me. Oh sure, they play some different measures, use some different scales, but the beats are 100% there and the movie just sings!!!!

I'm in love with this movie. I think I can see it again tomorrow night, if the little dude's teething ends up being okay.

But Jeff's comment is correct; you don't have to pick! You just get to love them both!!


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Perry on June 10, 2017, 01:22:12 PM
I have seen neither, yet, and I am choosing to go see WW first.

You can't miss either way.  I think you will like Wonder Woman.  So what's taking you so long?

I am ruled by my legs, my man. If they tell me we are going nowhere, we go nowhere  :D :D

Sadly, it is hard for me to read sometimes when my legs flare up or I would be reading more than you ... and THAT is saying something

I agree.  If you're only seeing one, I'd see WW on the big screen.

However, if you're planning on seeing both at the theater eventually, I'd probably see GotG2 first since it may be leaving the theaters sooner than WW.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jimmy T on June 25, 2017, 07:39:16 AM
Saw it again.

I'm in love with Wonder Woman.

Hope I can see it on $5 Tuesday since the mother in law will be around to spend the night to watch the baby the next day!!!

Really need to go see this but havent had much time with the move and unpacking, travel as well as work.  plus both my kids are no longer within easy distance to go see it together and the wife has little interest...unfortunately she chose to join us on movies that were less than good (BvS & ASM2) and no matter how i suggest the "good" ones she still not interest.

oh well...looks like i will try and go solo, hopefully this weekend.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jeff on June 26, 2017, 08:48:24 AM
It always cracks me up how there is all this moaning and crying that there aren't any female leads in movies and then when there is one, and a strong one, women don't want to go to see it (my wife doesn't want to go see it either).  Yet, they'll line up for Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America.  Oh the irony.

You won't mind seeing it solo Wringer.  It's that good.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Mitch on June 27, 2017, 08:40:56 AM
You guys have got me in the mood to see it again.  Maybe I'll go tonight.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Perry on July 09, 2017, 03:49:45 AM
Okay, so I finally saw this a couple days ago, and since Jimmy said Spider-Man was a good movie, but didn't praise it as being the best movie he has ever seen, in retaliation, I am going to bash this movie.
 :D :D

Just kidding.  :D  ;D ;)

I really, really did enjoy this movie. Loved it. Heck, even the opening DC Production scene showing all the Justice League characters and then widening out to show the a good portion of DC characters was really cool. Was that there with Suicide Squad? If so, I missed it. I thought that alone was a nice new (to me) touch and a nice way to refresh the DC movie U.

Another thing that impressed me early on, was the young Diana. Wow what a great little job she did. And what a great job of picking the early teen Diana as well as she looked JUST LIKE the younger version, same nose and face shape, and it really sold the imagery of Diana aging.

And as for adult Diana, like Mitch and others have said, Gail Gadot was THE perfect choice. Her beauty just explodes off the screen when they want it to (getting her civilian dress stuff for just one example) while her acting drives home the power and mental fortitude so important to her character. Something that many a young girl will hopefully latch onto.

The supporting cast was also amazing. David Thewlis, who I just saw on Fargo (which if you guys haven't seen the new Fargo shows you are missing out) was perfection. Etta Candy was portrayed with great humor by ... crap ... I know her name but can't remember ... crap ... anyway ... continuing ... Huston was great as a Nazi, he plays bad so good  :) and Chris Pine was ... well ... I am not a Chris Pine fan, but he was, as always, serviceable I suppose (but not great by any means).

There were so many great things in the movie. So many. Truly a great effort and something that the DCMU should (hopefully) be able to build off of including, with any luck, signing the director to return for WWII. I mean WW2.
 :D

I did have a couple issue .. a couple minor issues, other than Chris Pines acting of course  ;D. These didn't ruin the movie for me, by any means, but just a little something I wish they would have done a little different.
1 - Some of the CG looked a little ... off. Again, nothing that killed it, but some parts, just a couple of Diana jumping, really looked like they could have spend a couple more weeks making it look a little better. But I think you can find that opinion in any movie with CG heavy use.
2 - ... and sorry but this is where I have to start using the "I Am Groot" spoiler tags  :D
The "Shield!" thing. Here we have a woman that has proven she can jump 100's of feet in the air, but suddenly, Steve recalls seeing a cool move on the training field and so he uses a truck/tank door to propel Diana up 7 stories into the air? BAH !!  >:(
3 -
Naked Steve Trevor. That part should have been edited out and left on the cutting room floor. You guys know I am not prude, hahah, man you should really know that, but that scene was something that just took the movie to a place it need not have gone. There was no reason for it at all. The comedy that was there was not that funny, for one, in-fact tired and over used if anything, but it just wasn't necessary nor done with any service to the movie.

Again, none of that spoiled anything for me. You will always have issues with any hero movie, of course, just three little things that I noticed, along with the ending that was a tad ... well ... enough of that.

This was a spectacular movie. No doubt about it.

Was it DC's best. I think right now it would be for me, but I think after the new car smell wears off I may still enjoy Dark Knight more, I think, but Wonder Woman is certainly up there and it belongs up there. Period.

9 outta 10 - Ricocheted Bullets!!!

Totally agree on this scene.  As one of the many fathers who took their little girl to this movie, this scene made me mad.  Totally unnecessary and not even funny (like you said).  Bad judgment on Warner Brothers part.

It was just ... so unnecessary and totally off theme of the movie.
You could have had the same "effect" without the 'I have a pretty large dick' part by just having Diana be impressed or interested in his overall male physique, without bringing the "dangling chad" into play. Especially when they do a similar joke, again, seconds later when she asked him ... whatever it was she asked when he realized she was talking about his watch. Heck leave that part in and it would have been fine. But no reason whatsoever for the other part.
They had a fantastic movie for little girls to be a part of and, like you said, that part just made a lot of fathers who took the daughters to the movie very uncomfortable. I had no daughters with me but if there were any in the theater when I saw the movie, luckily there were not, I would have felt a tad uncomfortable.

And yes I know most girls, depending on age, would not know what the hell Steve was referring to, but as a dad you don't get hit with reality first, you get hit with "Hey!!! My daughter is right here".

Again, not being prudish, but it was not needed nor a good fit for this movie is all.

Didn't ruin the experience overall, still a grand movie that I enjoyed immensely, but yeah, could have been just as grand without that small part ... or large part as it were
 ;)

Agreed.  Cheap and unnecessary.


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jimmy T on July 10, 2017, 07:59:07 PM
For me, the scene really rang untrue for how a man from 1916 would act. Being a spy nonwithstanding, I wouldn't believe any man would stand and not hide themself from a drop dead gorgeous woman.

Make the scene so he crashes back in the water and tells Diana she can't be in there, and Diana to question if he's embarassed of himself? Is he not like other men? Sure, that can be funny, but standing full monty and trying to explain was...uncomfortable to all. I agree, a clunker of a scene.

Perry; you hate Chris Pine that much? LOL I honestly really don't care; as there are actors that I spit into open air when you mention their names (Drew Barrymore! Pft!), but what's your dig on him? Just curious.

And Perry, for your point #2...it's always done so their is a callback to some past scene in the movie. Always happens, always will. *shrugs* AT least that way, the boys felt helpful. ;)  :D

I believe I get to see it again for a 4th time Wednesday!!


Title: Re: WONDER WOMAN
Post by: Jimmy T on July 10, 2017, 08:41:02 PM
Also:

Great!! Wonder Woman was still 4th at the box office after 6 weeks out. Sequels like Cars & Transformers, both debuting after her, both have dropped and fallen behind. This movie has done amazing domestically, and internationally to the tune of $745 million!! I think I've got one more viewing in me yet!!

No, no. I don't hate him. I just don't think he is a great ... or an especially good actor. I have never enjoyed his acting in any movie other than Trek and that is only because I can enjoy him and relate to him as Kirk, as it kinda reminds me of how Shatner used to "act"  :D I don't hate him or his acting (non)ability, but he is far down on my list of good actors is all. He is serviceable in some roles, but I would have liked someone else as Steve, but it didn't overly effect my enjoyment of the movie.

Although had it been a bad movie, which I am glad it wasn't, he would have certainly caught more of my wrath and blame.
 :D

And Perry, for your point #2...it's always done so their is a callback to some past scene in the movie. Always happens, always will. *shrugs* AT least that way, the boys felt helpful. ;)  :D

 :D Too true (on both comments)

Excellent point, though I would like to think that most decent guys I know from 2017 would try to hide themselves as well.   ;)  Certainly, Trevor proved himself to be a decent guy on the boat trip to London and on which makes the scene inconsistent at best.

'Most decent guys' in any decade would certainly hide themselves-a winning statement! No argument here!  :D

Just use the model "boy scout", Superman (the boy scout moniker used often for him though not entirely accurate), in Steve's place and then image Superman standing there doing and saying the same thing.

No.

He wouldn't it and neither should Steve.  :)

I love that guy.
