Horseshit. Watch the movie. It's not Iron Man 3 with its completely useless and pointless flashback.

Dude, you are just wrong. I don't think you have seen the movie, or even watched many reviews.

Doesn't gain powers? She fucking learns to FLY. No, not just using her lasso as a spider web, but the literally flies. But, then she has to go back to her apartment to get her golden winged Falcon suit. And, she somehow has the power of making things invisible. Where did that show up before or after this movie. It's fucking stupid.

The first scene is nothing but to tell a lesson about taking short cuts...which is the entire point of the movie itself. No, it did not need to be part of the movie...for the exact same reason you mention for Iron Man 3.

I have no desire to watch this movie. This thing is a worse disaster than Birds of Prey or Justice League.

I watched it a week ago, you doofus! :lol: :lol: :lol: (And I'm going to watch it again tonight.)

Stop watching spoiler reviews, nimrod. Diana actually explains the invisibility "trick" before she does it. I bet all the hipster-blogger reviews you've watched don't even mention that. :roll:

My advice to you is to cease your rant at least until you have watched it, too. Gee, you just might like it! :lol:

Just got my new 55 inch; 4k Smart TV for Zack Snyder's Justice League. I'll be thinking of Monker and RWF's family when watching #ZSJL over and over while getting a BJ.

Just caught a new HBO Max commercial on TNT that glimpses us some sweet footage of Batman fending off an attack in ZSJL!

Didn't know you and Zack Snyder were that tight.

Yeah, it's funny how they "save" one franchise film (Justice League) and ruin another (Wonder Woman).

The Wonder Woman franchise isn't any more "ruined" than Ant-Man's. :lol:

Wonder Woman 3 is happening, sir. Patty Jenkins is directing.

yeah, i know that ww3 is happening. But, things could change about the director. If they want to fast track it, to 'fix' the franchise, they may want to change directors...because Jenkins is doing "Star Wars : Rogue Squadron" for Disney, to release in 2023. I doubt they want to wait that long for another WW movie.

I watched the movie, but on my smart phone. Having issue playing HBO Max (just on Wonder Woman with my Roku device),bummer. I can stream it through my TV but surround sound seems off, bummer again. Just from my phone I would give it a C+ on B-. Will make it official once the HBO issue is fixed and I can watch it like rest of my movies. Some scenes were hard to make out, so...
Did seem to be missing a big fight, something that stood out like no man's land from the first movie, again that may change. Did not mind the slower pace either.
To 2 villain's were pretty comic book accurate for the most part, depending on which decade your talking about. Wonder Woman did not have new powers. Everything has either been in the comics or TV. She has "flown" in the comics for decades and the jet was for long distance. Her flying, depending on the writer, was gliding on the air waves, using Hermes powers to fly or lasso. This goes back to the 70's. The Invisible jet goes back to the first few years. Turning things invisible was done in the 90's with a sphere, if I remember right, would to look that one up.
The opening scene, WB suggest that be cut or the mall scene, they felt like it had two opening and wanted the time cut down. I liked the both, and I am glad they keep them both. If I had to choose I would keep the Paradise Island and cut the mall. The mall was too corny.
Cheetah could have been used more and Max less or Max left out for another movie. But Max is a good 80's "bad guy"

Anyway, just my thoughts from a small phone screen. The bummer is I sold my 3D TV and bought a 65 Roku TV just for this show and the Justice League.

Since this was the first movie to be shown in 4k/HDR on HBOMax, I would bet that is your issue. Either HBOMax is not doing a good job streaming it, or you do not have enough download speed for 4k. I assume you bought the 4k/hdr ROKU...Premier or above...and you have 4k compatible HDMI cables. If you can watch other services in 4k, then it is HBO's issue.

The comics and TV are not the same canon, excluding multiverse. In the DCEU canon, Wonder Woman did not fly in 1918, in BvS, or Justice League. So, yes, it IS a new power. It is also a new power that she can magically wave her hands around and touch a plane to make it invisible...also not in 1918, BvS, or Justice League.

I did get a 4K, great picture. Netflix 4k plays fine, I did look up and there is A Roku/HBO issue going on, that the are trying to figure out. Hopefully soon, before JL. Got really fast e speed at house.

She learned to fly 1984, so in the first WW she would not know how to. Since here flying is more gliding she would not have had a chance to use in the small confines of the fight in BVS. JL who knows with how that movie turned out, what the intent was. Have to agree with you on the invisible bubble touch, it was just kind of thrown in there half hazard.

So, it sounds like JJ is rebooting Superman without Cavil. Cavil seems to now be reduced to a multiverse guest role. Not good for his future in DC.

Also, Marvel has been crushing it on streaming with WandaVision. It's setting up all kinds of stuff. Finale coming up.

Next up is Falcon and Winter Soldier...which looks better than I thought it would be when first announced.

Then there is Snyder's JL. This has really been the only series that HBOMax has put out that can compete with what NetFlix and Disney+ are doing. Well it be enough to get subscribers and have them stick around? Maybe, I don't know. It is pretty obvious that WB is NOT interested in continuing the "Snyderverse". So, it may be the period at the end of that story line. Reboot Superman. Reboot Batman. After how bad WW84 was received, I wouldn't be extremely confident WW is safe from a reboot as well.
