Looking forward to it! Hopefully see it with Formy later this month. Probably in two weeks' time.

I wish I had money so I can see it. Just got a check, but it's only $5 and I should spend it for something more important.

IDK, this is a Wonder Woman movie. Can't be too many things more important... :razz:

Saw it earlier today. It was really good! By far the best DCEU film so far.

Saw it this weekend in IMAX. I really enjoyed it. I dunno there was just something about seeing an actual female super hero up there kicking ass that resonated with me more than I realized it would. I can't really describe the wonderment and how proud I was. The movie itself was probably, plot wise, 7/10. But I can't help but say I'm a bit bias because of WW herself finally being on the big screen and being so badass.

Great time.

I used to go watch movies in theaters alone all the time. Never felt much of a difference, can't have a conversation during it most of the time anyway, so it's barely like there's anyone there anyway :P

I saw it alone. I have for many movies. Its awkward the first time or two, but after that you don't really notice anymore. I see a lot of movies with friends as well, but sometimes there's something you want to see that your friends wouldn't really be interested in.

The movie was really well made and fun to watch, but I found the plot a bit lacking. I was surprised to see 2 1/2 hours had gone by when I could explain it in a single breath. Still, I would watch it again.

Yeah, I used to go on my own all the time when I had you know... free time. Ha, I actually preferred going on my own! I remember watching all of the Lord of the Rings trilogy on my lonesome. Good times.

I still need to go and see Alien Covenant as Sophie hates scary movies. That might have to be a solo excursion.

I had planned on giving Wonder Woman a miss as I've not enjoyed a superhero film in a long time. Hearing people rave about it though has me giving it some thought.

This is the first DC movie that I've actually been excited for after watching the trailer, and the reception has been positive as well. I really want to see it, but no good opportunity. I've missed so many movies.

Well if you do get the chance check it out man. I thought it was great.

First 20 minutes - pretty ropey
Last half hour - pretty ropey
Everything in between - pretty good

The scenes with Chris Pine and Gal Gadot are delightful, especially any of the stuff in London which had a lot of funny moments. I wish there'd been more of Lucy Davis and the rest of the team who go on the mission to the Western Front.

Also, David Thewlis as the god of war? Really? He seems very miscast.

She was inspirational and it was fun to watch. It didn't break new ground or anything, but I have no regrets paying to see it.

Great movie. Cool to see women kicking ass. Diana was a beast. This movie is basically Captain America and Thor origins rolled into one.

Me and Formy saw it yesterday, really enjoyed it. It was an excellent superhero film. My only real criticism is that Doctor Maru was a wasted opportunity: it felt like there was an interesting backstory that was just about to be revealed, but it never happened.

I took my dad to see it to celebrate Father's Day (we both had work on the day itself). Thoroughly enjoyed it. Themes, characters, designs, action, atmosphere... All great. Not really a lot to complain a lot. Maybe it wasn't "ground breaking", but then, I don't think it has to be in order to be a really good film.

The biggest complaint that stood out while watching was that during the early fight scenes, I did think that there was way too much slow motion. Pausing to show a slow-mo clip of the action, then resuming at full speed only to pause again less than five seconds later is ridiculous. And there was one point where they did this three times in a row.

And, like Mr. Carny, I felt that Dr. Maru was incredibly under-utilized. And, given that they appear to be shifting from WW1 to the modern age going forward, I don't really think it was done intentionally to try to bring her back or anything.

Yeah, if there was one glaring flaw in the movie it was this. It seemed to get less frequent later on but in that first big fight on the beach the movie was really suffering from 300 Disease.

I loved it and cried a bunch. And that definitely wasn't something I expected. I just saw all those badass women kicking ass and just burst into tears.

My only complaint was that I actually wish they had pushed it further and not been so safe with the whole female empowerment thing. How does it not upset Diana that women are almost completely devoid of power in this world? She walks into a meeting of all men and doesn't seem to think this gender disparity is odd at all. There's a throwaway line about women not even having a vote in this society and Diana doesn't even look perturbed. And I also wish she had mentioned that marriage IS a thing where she comes from, it's just between women. I didn't like how they framed it like marriage was specifically a male/female thing.

Aside from wanting a more hardcore feminist message, I thought Diana was so wonderfully strong and heroic and good and I loved her. And I loved Chris Pine in his role too. The plot kinda got disjointed and weird toward the end but I was engaged the whole time and it was such a fun ride. And literally just seeing women kicking ass is basically I want from all movies and tv shows these days. The scene on the beach at the start of the movie, that was EVERYTHING. smurf, I loved it so much.

You see the occasional badass female, but usually she's singular. Special. The chosen one. And Diana obviously fits that bill too and for most of the movie, it's her surrounded by men. The one exceptional woman. But at the start of the movie we get a bunch of scenes where it's a COLLECTIVE of women who are strong and warriors. A whole host of them. And that beach scene with the Germans invading and all these women working together, fighting together, defending each other to kill these smurfing men. When have we ever seen that before? Maaaybe the slayers activation in Buffy but those were newbie slayers and nothing like these hardcore battle warrior Amazons. It was such a shock to the system to SEE that and I was crying before I even understood why.

I'm so sad that as we move onto Justice League, it will again be Diana, the one female, surrounded by men. What would it be like if Justice League were a bunch of female super heroes with one dude? How awesome would that be?

Well if it was Zack Snyder directing it there'd probably be a load of slow-mo close-ups of their bodies.
