    The term "World War I" was actually coined during World War I.
    It was a political statement about endless war. It is happening now and it will happen again and again.

    Yeah no, quite a large part of Age of Ultron was about them saving civilians so not sure what you guys mean. Also, a lot of the best comic book storylines don't focus mainly on saving people. Just sayin'.

    And before that they had Wanda hypnotize everyone to evacuate. And then they spend time helping everyone evacuate. And then Ultron points out that Tony is quipping in order to stall him so more people can evacuate. Then Wanda shields people from the robots shooting at them. Then Tony saves a family from a collapsing building by carrying them out in the bathtub. And then they had a Helicarrier fly in to evacuate the rest that didn't make it out before the city started flying. And then Hawkeye almost died because he went back to save a little kid.
    And yeah, at one point in there Steve tries to stop a car with a woman in it from falling off the city.

    ARGH! I HAVE to say it again because even though I love HitB sometimes you guys just sound painfully ignorant when you forget big plot points. The ENTIRE point of the final battle in Age of Ultron was about getting all of the civilians off of Sokovia as it was floating up into the sky before they even thought about taking on Ultron himself. Cap says at one point, "I'm not leaving a single civilian up here.", Quicksilver literally sacrifices his own life to save Hawkeye and a child. They spend three-quarters of the battle getting the civilians onto the lifeboats of the Helicarrier to get them the fuck out of there. How the fuck is that SHOEHORNED in? I have absolutely no problem with you guys hating a movie I loved, but for the love of God get the facts straight.

    Also on a side note, believe it or not but Zack Snyder actually had a large input in Wonder Woman, he produced it and helped write the story for it. I can't stand Snyder's DC movies, but just sayin.

    Like Jay, the moment I saw David Thewlis in that meeting, I knew it would be him. Mainly because of the dramatic irony that he is campaigning for peace but he's the God of War.

    I dunno, I think Mike is pretty wrong here about comics audience: the idea that comics are a little boy thing I think is a fairly recent phenomenon from the late 70s to 90s. If you look at things like not just Wonder Woman but everything from the old Lois Lane comics to the long standing popularity of Archie, to classic Doctor Strange or soap operatic elements in Claremont classics, there's female heroes, romances, and really a wide variety of stories that go way back. Mike falls into the trap of internet nerd hysteria that thinks everything in fandom revolves around them and therefore a comic with a woman in it must be due to pandering, and not because over time, comics editorial and the direct market left part of its audience behind. The internet is full of angry comic nerds who will insist that "PC-culture" is ruining "their" hobby because they refuse to address things like how Saga is outselling Walking Dead.

    I know I'll probably get some shit for saying this, but, as a girl myself... I was just happy to see she didn't have double D's.
    Almost every chick in comic books has huge tits, and I'm so over that. Yeah, I get it, generally aimed toward men, but it gets old. Even guys will tell you that they prefer all sorts of body types (Or even that they don't have a preference). I fully admit that this is a petty point, but it's worth noting that the actress playing Wonder Woman was still smoking hot without the exaggerated body structure.

  • Aquarium Gravel
    Aquarium Gravel Month ago

    .... uh yeah, comic books are traditionally aimed at boys. being true to the source material is NOT the complaint. the complaint is little girls learn that being strong and being a hero are male traits. by making sure we have female heroes in the future, regardless of their prevalence in that past, we give more little girls a way to internalize strong personality traits.

    Andrew Hershberger 2 months ago

    What a generic action hero movie, black and white morality (because that is how it is in the real world), weird messaging (If WWI just ends because of Ares, why did WWII happen?), and pointless secondary characters (gotta love that Native American Smuggler...who didn't do anything). It was OK, not amazing/not terrible but, okay.
    I spent the whole movie waiting for her naivete to slap her back to earth but, she just keeps on trucking. They might as well had a line "No-man's-land? I am no man!"
    I love history so that scene just pissed in my eye, no WWI soldier would just bum rush behind her without orders or supporting troops (for the inevitable counterattack).

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Jacob Prescott
    Jacob Prescott 3 months ago

    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?

      In fairness, *both sides* are pretty shite, were then and are now. Does the name *"Neil Kinnock"* mean anything to you? If not, fix that by watching some episodes of *Spitting Image* and brush up on your political history. Also, where on earth did you get that empowering theft rubbish?

  • Jordan Crass
    Jordan Crass 4 months 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. . .

    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?

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.
