    Anybody else kinda sad that we live in a culture that argues about whether or not a movie pushes whatever new hollywood pc stereotype well enough? Some ppl liked this movie bc it was a good comic book movie, some ppl liked it bc it had a female lead, some disliked it bc of the actress (regardless of the content?) As long as movies are made with the mindset of pushing a social commentary, then they're ultimately pointless bc in 10 years the mindset won't hold up to whatever new social norms are present.

    Representation matters, as long as the movie is good. I'm from Ireland, o'brian is my favorite star trek character because he was the only one on the show who sounded and sort of looked like me.

    Free Cake. Free Cake and Pie! But in the end, it had a cost. A terrible, terrible cost.

    Did mr. plinkett turn gay because he watched wonder woman??? Seems plausible after seeing gal gadot's emmy speech.

    If my ex-girlfriend was a superhero, she'd be "Wander Woman"....


    ...because she had early-onset Alzheimers and was always wandering off at inopportune times.

    Everything in Hollywood is political, you've to look by all the idiots making it that and ignore it to enjoy anything. Like the cast of Stranger Things being absolute cunts in real life, but they aren't them in the show so I can ignore it and watch it without those two worlds (or 3) colliding. Wonder Women was decent, I was just amazed they didn't fuck it up like every single other god damn thing they touch.
    And yes I'm late to the party, only a new Subscriber working my way through content.

    I guess the story was OK. I fell asleep in the theater. The CG was lame and the slow mo fighting for some reason has only worked in The Matrix and 300, it failed here.

    I honestly saw none of the misandry/misogyny or other political drama in the film except what applied to the time period, so I was able to thoroughly enjoy it.

    Except Ironically it was in 1918 that World War I was named World War I, this is why History is important kids.
    BTW look it up before you call me an idiot, it's true, strange, but true, there is a full story behind why they called it WWI in 1918, again look it up before you jump to conclusions.

    Maybe role model is a bit strong but...when you were little kid, you never fantasized you were Bruce Wayne or Superman? Movies like Wonder Woman and Black Panther give other people a power fantasy just like I had with Batman growing up. I hear all the time from the nerdish side of the internet how important and defining their entertainment was in their lives. How, even though their parents saw them as just "dumb comics," there fun, escapism, and more than a few life lessons gleaned from them. So I find it very strange when women or minorities finally get a seat at the super hero blockbuster table, out of the woodwork comes a hoard of neckbeards wagging their finger and asking "is WW reeeeaaalllly a role model?

    Um.... Yeah, about Margaret Thatcher. She was a monster who did jack all for women in politics or in general. She also ruined the society and economy of northern England, stole free milk from poor children, started the Falklands War and drank the blood of puppies.
    Thatchet the Hatchet. Thatcher the Milk-snatcher. Boooooooooooo....

    Was there really controversy about this movie? Feminism had nothing to do with this Wonder Woman. The fact that she was a woman was almost incidental, it's just a good superhero movie!

    How come lack of female comic readers is now a big problem? There are many female comic book fans. People should stop bullshiting about things that do not exist.

  • Jordan Crass
    Jordan Crass Month ago

    Side note I'm also confused because as someone heavily into comics, looking up to super heroes has always been a thing. Not in the most literal way but always a big thing. I think you guys took it way to seriously because people added the word female. Saying woman have somome too look up to now is not suprising. It's probably because the movie did so well and in this era of super hereo movies we had not had a good stand alone movie with a female. I'm also confused by this pointing out comics are mainly read by little boys...so is your point that the female aduiance is small so why would we care when a great comic book movie comes out with a great female lead? Thats not shit? Over all this feminism bot confused me.

    man I am so late to this party but fun lil fact: The guy who "created" wonder woman also created A LOT of bondage bdsm comic books that of course got banned because...bdsm, and it was so blatant, even AFTER editors told him to cut that shit out, that in the first issues of wonder woman, she is tied up on nearly every page. Also, yes he invented the polygraph test, but from what I read, he stole the rudimentary idea from his wife, AND NOT ONLY THAT but...have you ever noticed that in a lot of early polygraph designs...the subject is usually...tied down in some way? or maybe...idk...in some sort of...bondage? just saying. . .

    I thought the whole gay marriage was just a ruse. But Mike gave both Jay and Plinkett the gay cakes...
    So... is he not wanting the money and actually just wants the two to get a gay marriage?
    What is the plan here?! XD

    Ralphthemoviemaker's review of this movie completely slays this. I love so much of RLM's content, but Half In The Bag is regularly disappointing in its shill like behaviour regarding new, shitty, bug budget movies. Of course I don't always expect them to have the exact same opinion as me, but I expect them to have a consistent way of analysing movies which they apply equally. Mike especially completely contradicts his own standards and method of analysis all the time, giving really poor movies a pass. They go so fucking easy on these big budget pieces of shit in Half In The Bag that it comes across very shilly to me. Really disappointing.

    It was an okay movie, if it came out a decade ago when the hero fad was new, then it would have been amazing. However the morality was painfully black and white. I was waiting for Diana's naivete about the world to slap her down but, it never happened. It was merely adequate.
    The supporting members of the group, had no memorable lines or actions; they were there to be talked at. Why introduce a native american smuggler if Diana is just going to LEROY JENKINS through the front lines? Save to give Adam Beach work?

    In the cartoon the way she defeats Ares is by getting the people around him to stop fighting which stops his power since he thrives off of war. That might have been a better ending.

    I wish they had made Wonder Woman naive instead of partially retarded. She acted like a slow five year old, I mean c'mon they don't have secretaries or assistants where she comes from. Acting like thats slavery. She acts like a feminist but they don't even have men on her island, what does she know about feminism? She comes off like she's all about equality but she lives under a strict authoritarian leadership with a queen. Whatever.

    In the time of the war it was called "The First World War". They did come up with a few names like "the great war" but those had already been used. So they decided to call it The First World War. So it wouldn't be too silly for someone to call it WW1 in those days.

  • Chapstick817

    Can I just whine about the beginning joke about girls finally having someone to look up to? I feel like these guys don’t understand that having real life role models and fictional role models are separate things but both play into your self esteem and dreams and happiness. If you spend your whole life as a guy surrounded by images of Batman and Superman etc you don’t really know what it would feel like to be lacking those characters and the ways they impacted your self image. This is mainly subconscious stuff but it can contribute to confidence and well being for young people and children to see themselves in impressive fictional characters. They can truly be very motivating especially when you find the character that feels like “you”. And that’s my rant thanks for listening.

    Wouldn't Segourney Weaver in Alien (orig) be more someone for girls to look up to? or Linda Hamilton (the strong tough woman (the mental institution escape in T2 was epic).
    Michelle Pheifer as catwoman.. and so on.

    Hillary Clinton?, now that's an evil enemy/villain character that would be incredible for a DC movie, she would yell like a maniac, make psychotic faces & would have eye twitching when she's about to be defeated. Plus she would be the most evil secretary of state since Kissenger's mass murdering little unsuspecting Cambodian kids by dropping millions of tons of "unused" ordinance with no regard for human life... oh wait... she did help to slaughter over a million Iraqis , but thats ok since they're not people but all terrorists.
    But anyway she could use her infinite power over military to trash superdick and wonderpussy with nuclear warheads, darpa project rail cannons, laser-ish satellites, millions of soldiers (enlisted kids from projects) as cannon fodder and pam pam pam, stealth tech.
    But we get Aries God of War (aka Satan) whispering to peoples ears.
    See best villain ever.

    I just can't any time you even try to touch anything to do with feminism or racism or other unequal power structures. It would really be great if you ever just dived into this stuff just the littlest bit, because you only have the most shallow idea that exists in society of these things. You wouldn't say the things you're saying if you had even an ounce of knowledge about social the history and present of power structures and social hierarchy. Especially as you have a big platform.

    Underworld, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (film), Resident Evil, Supergirl, Elektra, Catwoman, Hunger Games, Kill Bill, Alien, Terminator all lead by women with various power sets and technology. Can we stop sucking off WW?! Underworld and Resident Evil had super powered women kicking ass and making millions, no politics or superfluous BS weighing it down. Why is this movie getting so much unnecessary shit tangled with it?
