Wonder Woman 2017
« on: 03 November, 2016, 08:29:45 pm »
New trailer just out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q8fG0TtVAY

Really like the WW vs WW1 thing they got going. Cool to see her in the air and then running straight off after landing, without any need to pose. Action seems to have a good sense of weight. Doesn't seem like they'll give into the urge to throw in some typical city destruction.

While slomo seems to be the thing more than "a thing" in the Snyder DC films, in this one it seems like it'll work quite well. It's not there to help her to look rad while posing.

For all their faults, I quite like both MoS and BM v SM ext. cut, but I felt a bit fooled by the trailers when watching Suicide squad in the cinema. But I'm having hopes for Wonder Woman. Looks really rad.

And it appears to have a little levity in it. A good thing.

Plus Chris Pine. Swoon!
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

For anyone optimistic about WW, beware.

A few months ago, this open letter from an ex-Warners employee hit online, basically slating the Warner Bros CEO for his terrible creative decisions, mostly involving anything to do with Zack Snyder. 

Here's the pertinent part about WW:

Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn't be such a mess. Don't try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it's another mess.

I would take that with a pinch of salt, the letter reveals next to nothing about the plot and seems to be more a angry ex employee moaning due to layoffs. Not to mention its "inside Sources" dont even have a name.

That said as much as i liked BvS, the WW trailer has had little to grab me yet. I love the redesign for Dr. Poison and i really like DC using more minor villains in its films. But the slo-mo seems a bit overused, Gadot is decent actress but im not sure she can carry a film.

Then again the director is good, visuals are decent and here's hoping for an Enemy Ace cameo.

Don't believe the positive buzz, Wonder Woman was a cliché ridden stinker.

Incoherent character motivations and actions, with one of the most dull and formulaic climaxes seen in a comic book movie in a long time-and that's saying something!

4/10

On the flip side, do believe the hype as my brother saw it yesterday and thought it was great.

Going to see it with him next week.

I'm going early next week.
Toyed with the idea of going yesterday but the weather was far too good to be spent in a darkened room for 3 hours.
Supposed to be cooler and wetter next week.
Perfect for the flicks.

I just came from seeing it.

The good things: 1. Gal Gadot is very convincing in the part, both acting and in the fight sequences. (Chris Pine also did a good job with his part.) 2. SFX and stunt/fighting choreography both also generally very good, with lots of action set pieces.

I'm less happy with the original story, on several levels. Not enough recognizable here from the WW comics, and the change of venue from WWII to WWI serves no real purpose other than to make the film seem a little less like Captain America (in retrospect, I wound up wishing they'd just set the film in the present). The core of the story problem is that it doesn't succeed in achieving that admittedly difficult balance of portraying WW as both the ultimate warrior woman AND the emissary of love and peace to Man's World. The short present-day epilogue plays lip service to the latter, but it feels like too little, too late.

That said, I probably went into it with too high expectations based on the trailer, and yes, I should know better.

I even thought her performance was rather flat and one note to be honest.
Chris Pine was the only one who walked away with any dignity intact, maybe surprisingly.

I hear there's a cheeky wink to Gal Gadot in real life, where Wonder Woman bombards a German school with rockets and kills 11 children then calls it self defence.

I see what you did there!

Though that's closer to the plot of Batman Vs Superman!
