    Can I be horribly, brutally honest? All this “Wonder Woman is nothing but amazing, highest tomatometer of any superhero movie movie ever, the greatest comic book movie since the original Christopher Reeve Superman!!!” schtick has me very nervous that everyone’s seeing the film through rosy glasses because they know how important the first superheroine movie of the modern age of comics films is, and so people are ignoring any and all flaws. I mean I don’t want that to be true, obviously, but the way I’ve heard no negative critiques of the film has me somewhat worried it’s not being held to the same standard as everything else. I guess I’ll find out tomorrow night…

    • I’m nervous, too. Before BVS, the only thing I remember about Gadot is that she fingerprinted a dude in Fast & the Furious by wearing a bikini and expecting him to grab her ass. It worked and they got the fingerprint off her bikini bottoms, which is…I mean. Those movies aren’t known for their smarts.

      So, while I liked her in BVS, it was a shooort role. A cameo, almost. Can she do it? Does she have the gravitas? Can the movie be at LEAST better than The First Avenger? Gods, I hope so.

      Edited to add: Rebecca Pahle said she liked it. She’s a good’n. I am bolstered.

        Frankly, I was expecting this to be a competent film that was dragged down by the baggage of having to be like BvS in many ways.

        When I first heard the initial wave of reviews I assumed I was being pranked in some subtle way.

      I feel the same way, but I think it’s because we’ve had crap for so long, the trauma has given me trust issues. I have a hard time believing that we’re actually going to get something good for once.

      I have my Friday IMAX tickets ready to go, though. :)

      Yep. Three word review: Good, but safe. A solid movie, easily better than anything DC’s had to offer in the past few years (not counting Lego Batman) and throughly enjoyed by my mother (who’s not into superheroes), but pretty watered down comics-wise—they never even say “Wonder Woman.” And I’m pretty sure Agent Carter was more blatantly feminist.
