Agreed 1000%. I mean Diana was supposed to have learned the lesson in the prologue! Why are we watching her trip over the same failing again? Develop Diana’s relationship with Barbara and have the movie be about Diana trying to save Barbara from herself and saving the rest of the world along the way.

One of my biggest peeves is a superhero donning a new armor only for it to be trashed immediately because they need to get back into the signature costume by the end. Read more

Ooh now that I’ve read this piece, I kinda wish she had only traversed the skies using the lasso instead of conventionally (in this genre) flying with one fist out, as if to say truth is leading her way. It’s such a fun visual.

They could’ve easily shown how Diana used the lasso of truth on a guard or an officer to get them to spill where Max went, but alas.

You know, at one point, there’s a line or two about Max Lord asking if he could get evangelical congregation to join hands with him, and it could’ve been visually stunning to have WW try to get to him in a sea of people at a rally instead of... another blue skybeam maelstrom finale in a superhero movie.

I actually didn’t mind their basic motivations (although I didn’t really care for Max’s additional motivation flashback montage which opened a bigger can of worms for me*). Read more

The movie specifically has a line that says the rando only has pictures of himself, implying that he doesn’t have loved ones nearby so that they don’t need to worry about someone visiting them and asking them difficult questions. Read more

The magic can let nukes appear out of thin air, but not a person, apparently. Rules of magic is so nebulous in this movie, which is so weird considering how reliant the plot is on it.

Actually you’re right. We do see signs of it very early on. Now that I think about it, even though Diana says she can only see Steve, Steve is in a stranger’s body and she’s in insane levels of denial. Read more

It’s just a contrived script that randomly gives Max *wind* powers so that Diana doesn’t even get a chance to kill Max and is forced to redeem him (she doesn’t even do that at first, actually. she tries to redeem everyone else and conveniently happens to see Max’s boy). Read more

Other characters become callous and protective over their wish, sure, but Diana never really has a scene where she lashes out to others to keep Steve “alive”. The writers even wrote a line to say the guy whose body was stolen didn’t seem to have family or friends “there’s only pictures of himself” so that Diana would Read more

All of this is capped by Diana giving up on Barbara and electrocuting her almost to death. Sure she survived, but I couldn’t tell at all if Diana meant for Barbara to get killed or not from how the scene was written. It really made Diana’s redemption of Max just minutes later feel completely hollow. I get that you Read more

I actually started it like a decade ago, but only finished it this April. I truly love the wacky world building to a point that when the finale introduced even more elements (like a mention of a Tao magic wielding space pirate emperor?!?) I was like “wait I want to watch THAT show”.

With the Attunement of Sky changes and the third Arc subclass, it makes you wonder if Bungie should just give Warlocks alt-ranged attacks. Read more

Remember when Porsche acquired VW by borrowing money that was paid off using VW shares, but triggered a debt that required it to be sold to VW?

I can imagine the emphasis on the “hot” part of the command because federation replicators are notoriously obtuse, which has been documented many many times. Read more

Oh boy. If that’s the case, I wonder what’s going to be the FF7 equivalent of Evangelion 3.0 - giving characters a false hope before plunging them into a deeper despair.

I’ve always hated the Vormir cosmic vending machine as a plot device. I didn’t like it in Infinity War, and I didn’t like it in Endgame. I’m guessing that the writers left the mechanics of the vending machine intentionally vague so that what it asks for can be interpreted loosely, but neither answers are satisfying in Read more
