The Power Rangers reboot movie from 2017 was good! I really liked it! I loved the character development and exploration, and…the movie in general. I suppose the suits weren’t very toy-etic. But I still enjoyed the movie.
Doesn’t meant I won’t share fun mocking videos, like the Pitch Meeting guy!
This dude makes consistently fun videos for Screen Rant. I definitely recommend adding him to your YouTube rotation.
His Pitch Meeting for Wonder Woman 1984 hits all the nails on all the heads.
And that’s a good way to spend a Tuesday!
Welp, Wonder Woman 1984 has arrived and it has landed with a big, dull thud. Reviewers and superhero movie fans across this great internet are ripping the sequel to shreds, and I don’t necessarily think they’re wrong. I watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max and…it was fine. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t think it was terrible, but I can’t say I particularly cared much for it.
Movie Rating: 5/10 – Alright
I enjoyed the first Wonder Woman movie well enough. And I’ve liked most of DC’s movie output since then, especially Aquaman and Shazam. But Wonder Woman 1984 is a real callback to the age of cheesy or bad superhero movies. I’ve seen a lot of people compare it to the Christopher Reeves Superman movies, or the original Wonder Woman TV show, but I don’t know enough about either to make that comparison. For me, this is more along the lines of Spider-Man 3, too full of stuff that just comes along and doesn’t work well together.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts and full review of Wonder Woman 1984. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie!Read the rest of this entry
So Warner Bros. recently made the very bold decision that all of their major 2021 movies are going to release simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. The first up is Wonder Woman 1984, which is coming out on Christmas Day. I can’t wait!
Personally, I’m kind of excited about this HBO Max thing. For one, it means I’ll get to see movies again, because I doubt theaters in my area will get to open anytime soon. For another…I dunno! I’m excited to see how it changes the upcoming movie landscape? I’m excited to see how it changes the world? I guess we’ll find out!
Meanwhile, early social media reactions to Wonder Woman 1984 have been very positive…but then those are usually overwhelmingly positive. But we have no reason to doubt them. The first Wonder Woman movie was good, and surely the filmmakers have grown and learned since then.
DC FanDome was yesterday and, holy cow, did they ever deliver! Hollywood may be in a bit of a standstill because of the virus, but that doesn’t mean moviemaking is dead! DC and Warner Bros are apparently churning out some real bangers! And we saw so many great trailers at FanDome yesterday.
Let’s dive right in, shall we?
First up is The Batman by director Matt Reeves, with Robert Pattinson starring. This trailer looks dope as hell.
I like the look of the costume in action. And I love the tone of the trailer. As much as I might be interested in taking Batman in some new directions, I can’t deny that Batman done right is still damn cool. A serious, grounded take on Batman as he tackles corruption in Gotham City and tussles with more than just the Joker sounds great to me! I think this was my favorite trailer of the day.
Another great reveal was the lineup to The Suicide Squad by director James Gunn. Not a full trailer, just a great reveal of the characters who are gonna show up!
I think that’s a great teaser! The cast and the characters look awesome, and we already know James Gunn can deliver. Need proof? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of The Suicide Squad!
As much as I’m a Marvel fanboy and can’t wait to see Gunn return for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3, I am pleased as punch with everything shown here about The Suicide Squad. This is gonna be good.
Of course, The Batman and The Suicide Squad are a long ways away. We’ve actually got Wonder Woman 1984 coming sooner rather than later. How does that look?
It looks OK. Not as amazing as I would have hoped. And Cheetah looks way too CGI-heavy for my tastes. I think they could have showed her off better in this trailer. But everything looks largely OK. I think Wonder Woman 1984 is going to do just fine.
That is, if we ever get movie theaters back…
Lastly we’ve got the first official look at Zack Snyder’s Justice League. And I think it looks like hot garbage.
I am not a Snyder Fanboy or a #ReleasetheSnyderCut person. I have loved some Snyder movies, like 300 and Watchmen, but I think his DC Comics work has been terrible. I think Man of Steel is the worst. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was OK in the theater, but I have really soured on it since — same with Justice League. These are bad movies, and Snyder is to blame.
So I do not have any hopes for his remastered Justice League movie. None of these new scenes look good, and “Hallelujah” is a terrible choice for the trailer.
Of course, I’m still going to watch this 4-hour monstrosity when it comes out. Perhaps I’m wrong and it’ll be good for once, but I doubt it.
Overall, DC did great at FanDome, as far as I’m concerned. I’m glad to see they might finally be getting their act together with these movies.
The Wonder Woman sequel is on the way! Wonder Woman 1984 is just around the corner, and it’s first trailer has arrived out of nowhere! And I’m not entirely sure what the movie is about!
We’ve got Steve Trevor back from the dead and getting confused by the 1980s. We’ve got Cheetah not being a cheetah. We’ve got a really weird looking Maxwell Lord. And we’ve got Wonder Woman using her lasso to swing from lightning bolts! I bet that was an exciting pitch in the Wonder Woman 1984 scripting process!
I’m still going to get my hopes up for a good movie! Wonder Woman 1984 comes out on June 5.
