To be fair, there are way more ants than black people in America. Granted, I'm sure he's not really dead but just recovering or something.

When he suggests he stay behind while the rest of the crew heads off to further adventure and battle the answer is "Of course not! It was a strange misstep in a film that did an excellent job avoiding the male gaze. [–]BertieBash 0 points1 point2 points 3 years ago (0 children). Wonder Woman 1984 hit theaters on Christmas 2020, as well as HBO Max for a limited time. Tag: CGI. For every moment of her being powerful and having agency and driving plot, I felt like they had to add 15 moments of men ogling or saying things like "I'm both terrified and aroused" to make sure the movie wouldn't be too radical. For all the feminist praise (rightly so if you just read the cover and not the book) it still ended with a woman who didn't need any man her entire life...falling in love with a man after almost zero time together and him sacrificing himself for her, which has to be the oldest plot trick in film. Yeup. He hid in the body of Remus Lupin for eighty percent of the movie and only made his appearance at the end to announce himself as the orchestrator of World War One. I very much agree with the point of view you are trying to convey. But your personal dislike of the film, for whatever reason, doesn't change the point that the plot, themes, and craft are functional: you can say that you don't care about teamwork as a theme, but you can't say that this movie failed to depict teamwork as a theme.

WW is the only one that makes empowered compassion its central emotional theme, as opposed to duty (or how cool it is to play with your superpowers). Gal Gadot didn't need to deliver an Oscar winning performance in order to have a huge social impact on young girls everywhere. Fails. Either 1) have Ares not exist, and then have Diana have to grapple with knowing that her beliefs are a lie (this is what I thought they were doing) or 2) have the German chemical warfare guy actually be Ares. Apparently with your fists. For me, this moment is Wonder Woman's greatest failure. [–]thief90k 3 points4 points5 points 3 years ago (0 children). Why not go for a little more realism? I mean I'm not a feminist but gimme a true badass and I'll be on their side no matter what their gender. Finding a hole then coming up with a convoluted way to plug it. Apparently neither do you.

Man I've been saying this from day 1. I don't know, and frankly I don't care. Ares Wizard on Kodi used to be one of the most popular Kodi repositories that used to be loved by many.

I was pretty surprised when they actually introduced an actual Ares which she just had to physically fight. If I would happen on an island with a medieval/ancient, all-female warrior tribe, it would be a head-scratcher for me. [–]Y3808 4 points5 points6 points 3 years ago (1 child).
