    I also read that the stars were supposed to be there to do a Q&A. Unfortunately, due to a scheduling mishap they were waiting for Gadot.

    It's weird that over the course of 4 films you and I have almost completely switched places.

    I don't know how much you know about the movie so I'll be vague just in case, but the third act being clunky was very predictable. There's a lot of interesting stuff to explore with Diana on Themyscira, and her subsequent entry into the "modern" world and her participation in World War 1. Those are areas unique to Wonder Woman where the movie can set itself apart from other comic book films. It's where it devolves into the inevitable third act boss battle that it gets harder to differentiate one comic book movie from the next.

    No, no, no. But I know enough about it to know the basic structure of the movie.

    I think that from now until forever, Star Wars is going to be a more divisive franchise. In the 30 years that it amassed its fandom, mini sub-fandoms arose that enjoy different aspects of the Star Wars brand and have different expectations from it, so naturally every single movie they put out will have its fans and its haters, mostly depending on what kind of itch you want Star Wars to scratch. To me that's a good thing because I don't feel beholden to one kind of thing. I can enjoy Rogue One as a crazy actiony war movie but also want more character-driven legacy stuff.

    We can ALL breathe a HUGE sigh of relief. The biggest question facing this movie is finally answered in this clip:

    Also, Gal Gadot is pretty.

    Never appropriate, yet always appropriate.

    The saving Pine in the alley scene was good, but I thought the fighting in that one was weird. But we still haven't seen the villain yet, which is interesting. Based on most of the material, it seems like all she's doing is fighting the Kaiser's troops.

    There were a lot more clips, like 7 or 8. I just posted the most important one. In one of them she has a pretty nifty fight with evil soldier boss guy. In another she does name check the villain.

    I think we've seen most of the scenes where she fights Kaiser's troops.

    I know everyone is geared up to poop on this, but it looks really good to me.

    I'm not complaining about them not revealing everything. On the contrary, I'm surprised by how little they have revealed. From all the ads, it seems like it's WW fights German troops, and that's it. Maybe one has crazy powerful mustard gas, but it's nothing super related.

    It seems like it could be a fun enough romp though. I just don't know if WB is selling it as a 'must see'. Even AC had more excitement surrounding it.

    But it is nowhere to the level of burying as Pirates 5.

    Now here's a horribly anachronistic poster.

    When this movie does pretty well at the box office, will the shrieking shrews of the feminist movement stfu for a minute? Prolly not.

    A multi-million dollar superhero movie did well! Guess what broads! Back to the kitchen because you're no longer allowed to have opinions! You won!

    All women are obligated to take pride in the success of this blockbuster movie. If it succeeds, you succeed. If it fails, you fail. By virtue of your gender, you are bound to this film for all eternity. But you really aren't allowed to make any statements about it.

    And this is really a trial run for next year. If Black Panther does well, African-Americans lose all rights to comment on anything.

    After so many years of oppression, white men are coming back!

    Why would that quiet them down? Success = rub it in everyone's face time.

    I think it will underperform. What does that mean?
