In the name of all that is good...  
I know I'm very late into the game, but I finally saw Wonder Woman, and my feelings can be summed up in these particular brief points:

** Diana is such a good, kindhearted and pure soul and we absolutely do not deserve her.

** I want to become Diana when I grow up.

** We should all aspire to be the kind of human beings that Diana wants and believes us to be.

Essentially, the film is worth the praise and hype it's been receiving. Gal Gadot is magnificent as Diana, and I'm really looking forward to the sequel, especially since it appears that Patty Jenkins is going to still be involved. I'm also very happy that the film is exceeding so much in the box office as it is with the critical and fan praise. Also, very recently Deadpool congratulated Wonder Woman surpassing Deadpool. So, yeah. Wonder Woman wins. ❤

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. It was such a good movie but the after movie feels was what got me. I felt so fucking empowered as if I could do anything and it's been quite a while since I felt that after watching a movie (I believe Katniss from THG was the last character that made me feel like this). The scene in No Man's Land got me weeping and I had goosebumps all over. My mama (who is a Day Care Teacher) was so boggled when more than 5 kids came into the first day of school wearing WW apparel and she looked at me like she knew I was thrilled.

That was such an uplifting and powerful scene. It really demonstrated how compassion and dedicated Diana was about the situation. This was her mission, and she wasn't going to let anyone stop her from helping protect innocent lives. And just her walking out into No Man's Land, with that music playing, and her just taking control and charge of everything. It was beautiful.

Awww, that's cute! When I went to Wizard World Con recently there were so many Wonder Woman costumes. I predicted there would be, but it was just so amazing to see. And I know that WW has always been kind of available in merchandising, but now there's extra stuff which makes me so happy! :D

I could have written this post! I loved it so, so much. So glad hat you got to see it and enjoyed it.

I was worried I wasn't going to be able to see it before it left theaters (whenever that is, I don't even know anymore since it seems movies tend to stay in theaters shorter than usual). But thankfully I managed to finally see it, and I'm so grateful I did. This was a film to be experienced on the big screen, and I cannot wait to get it on DVD.

WW was amazing! A GREAT MOVIE that deserves all the hype... I agree... humanity does not deserve Diana ❤️

I have to admit I was a little worried that it wouldn't live up to the hype. Not that I didn't think I wouldn't enjoy it regardless, but sometimes when something becomes overhyped you're expected to go into it with these high expectations only to be slightly letdown. But Wonder Woman was fabulous from beginning to end. The only issues I had were of the pacing in the more slowed, quiet moments at certain points, but otherwise it was a fantastic ride.

I really enjoyed it. I wasnt a fan of the recent dc movies, but this really added some awesome to the franchise.

And Gal Gadot was amazing, though Robin Wright stole my heart.

The DCEU really hasn't been that great in the last several years, but it seems that Wonder Woman has broken that curse. I know some were worried and even skeptical of the film before it was released, not wanting to get their hopes up, but I'm glad that the film proved itself and then some. It was absolutely gorgeous (the vibrant colors!) with a solid story and great performances.

WW was such a great movie! I thought Gal Gadot was perfect for the role.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 15th, 2017 08:09 pm (UTC)
She really was. I know many were skeptical of her when she was first cast initially, but after her first brief appearance in Batman v Superman she proved to be at least one of the few saving graces of that film, and then Wonder Woman where she was able to show everything that made Diana, well, Diana. I think she has won people over. :) ❤

I was so sceptical first because a) the newest trailer didn't look that great and b) when everyone loves something I often end up being the odd one out but in this case the hype really was deserved,I loved it too!!!

The trailers are what sold me, but much like with anything that has good trailers I was worried that the finished product wouldn't live up to them. Same when it comes hype after the fact. Sometimes when something is overhyped I tend to have unrealistic expectations and then get disappointed. Very rarely has something been exactly as everyone says it is, and thankfully Wonder Woman was of those films. ♥

It's always such a nice feeling to see movies are exactly what you expect them to be/the hype is around them :D

Don't worry, I'm also in the camp of people who haven't seen it yet. Eventually, though.

It's very rare that it happens, but when it does it's definitely an amazing feeling. :)

ISN'T IT SO GOOD? Gal Gadot is undoubtedly Wonder Woman for me until the day I die because she did such a great job as Diana.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 19th, 2017 04:02 am (UTC)
I know that many were skeptical and wary about the casting at first, which in a way is understandable because when you have Wonder Woman finally coming to the big screen you have to have the right actor to do the character justice. But Gal Gadot has definitely proven herself worthy of the role in more ways than one.

Now I just want more of her as Diana. Which we will be getting thanks to Justice League coming out soon (I'm only here for Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa tbh) and the Wonder Woman sequel, and possibly more if she gets cameos in other DCEU. :D
