i am apparently guilty of having gotten my hopes up too high for this, given all the early reviews and the stratospheric rotten tomatoes meta score.

admittedly, being a 40-something dude, i was not the main target for this movie.

sfx were good, even if the "real 3d" took a while to get out of its own way. gal gadot was better than expected, and did a fair impression of linda carter in a few of the shots.  chris pine was.... i dunno what it is about him that just doesn't work for me, but he always looks both pathetic and untrustworthy.

that was the worst villainous monologuing i have ever fucking seen.  like, seriously, it was exactly why i don't read comics or watch movies based on them.

the evil scientist had two things i wish had been handled differently - the internalized misogyny, and the lack of closure (i have a probably-too-dark-but-it-would-work-for-how-the-resolution-was-shaped recommendation)

i'd give it a.... 3.5/5?

I want to hear your idea for a better conclusion in the Dr. Poison arc :)

Oh man. That would have been great and awful. You should be on the writing team.

*nods* I think that handling it by having an unrepentant mass murderer go free without obvious consequences (as an "act of mercy") was a bad way to go, honestly.

I did like that her prosthetic was actually pretty accurate to authentic ones from that time period, although the lack of visible attachment points was less-so.
