    I'm surprised no one talked about how they slashed her agency from duty to protect humanity to a girl loves a guy and the power of love saves the day. I felt it was a bit of a cop out and did a disjustice to her whole quest and motive. Still a good movie, but it back pedaled hardcore.

    In all seriousness, Spider-Man 2 is my favorite superhero movie. Overall a great movie for me. 


    Wonder Woman definitely mirrors a decent amount of Captain America. I think Wonder Woman stands better as a solo film, but Captain America sets up his character well for the later movies. I'm sure the later Wonder Woman films will as well, but we'll have to wait and see. As for the film, I enjoyed it all. It really makes me want to rewatch BvS. A lot of people won't get it, but having a good, Asian, Female lead is really cool. In spite of all the generic "equality" talk, Hollywood is still a sea of white people. Having more leads that are of other races for non-stereotypical reasons is great progress. 


    DC has an advantage in that all the heroes are fundamentally different, so the movies should have different tones. Aquaman may be the Superman of the sea, but he's the King of Atlantis and has to run a country. Cyborg has his dramatic accident and coming into this new life. Flash is the super fast and fun one with the Batman like trauma behind it. Then there's the Batman movie that could have been written and directed by Ben Affleck, but oh well.

    I really enjoyed the movie. One thing that wasn't mentioned that stood out to me was the snippets of the realities of the western front. The night shelling Diana confused as thunder, the deep near impassable mud, the desolation of no man's land, the PTSD of the soldiers, the varied and brutal weapons used (gas),  the wounds of those returning from the front, the massive variance of troopers (Gurkhas, Canadians, British, French, Belgian) in the allied trenches. All of these things were touched on even if just in a passing scene. I thought that showed wonderful attention to detail about a war that is 100 years old now and not many people remember.

    Only just saw the movie a couple days ago, so now I can finally watch this. I totally agree with you guys, the dialogue did drag on, but it was still solid. There was sort of that fish out of water thing, but like James said she was never in utter confusion, just wasn't what she was used to. I enjoyed the shopping scene actually, and I didn't think I would, expecting it to be somehow degrading, but they did it very well.

    Solid 7/10 in my opinion.

    Im so glad Elyse touched on how the dialogue kind of dragged on. I thought I was the only one who felt that way. I thought it was a solid movie. But there were points in the movie that caused me to lull because it just felt like it was 5 straight minutes of just dialogue. But the scene where Diana comes into her own in the middle of the movie was absolutely phenomenal

    Talking about how she questions the social customs and stuff, it seems to me like she's taking on the role of a time traveller of sorts, going back to that time alongside the audience to question the mores of that era. (not seen the film)

    i loved the movie and agree that my only problem with it was the beam fighting at the end. i think it would've been a much more powerful ending if the twist wasn't "it was professor lupin the whole time" but rather if ares had simply been dead all along or not involved in the movie at all, and that would've tied in more closely with the theme of the duality of mankind and how all people are capable of great good or great evil. and it also would've tied in more strongly i feel with chris pines character who represents that duality because he fights for good but also lies steals and spies to do it. not to say that tany of this wasn't powerful symbolism, i just think it was weakened a little bit by showing an absolutely evil guy and killing him, and then instantly wining the war.

      I agree honestly. They set up this whole thing of "maybe people are shitty" and then immediately bring Ares in anyways and that realization felt cheapened

    I agree with Lawrence. Spiderman 2 is definitely the best comic book movie of all time. It captured the campiness of the comics perfectly, and was an amazing portrayal of the character in the comics. Also the movie was stylistically different from other superhero movies, and that's due to having an experienced director like Sam Raimi being in charge of the movie. I loved wonder woman, but the only problem i had with the film was the constant slow motion, and it seemed like Patty Jenkins was trying to replicate Synder's style a little. This is her first movie, so its not a huge problem, but I hope the second movie has its own style. Similar to what the Guardians of the Galaxy is to the marvel universe.

    I enjoyed Wonder Woman, it liked the tone of the film, it had some funny lines, Gal Gadot was well cast and I thought it was overall pretty solid. However, did anyone else get tired of the amount of slow motion in the film? I like a good action scene or fight scene and slow mo can definitely add to the moment if done right but it felt like it every other minute during a fight there was slow mo  and I just wanted to see Diana kick some ass!

    I love this movie, Diana's strength and innocence is so inspirational...but...The Amazons were lame, sure badasses and the were really cool to watch fight but, their sole purpose (to defend the world and defeat Ares) they just didn't do. Why? Because they didn't believe it?  They were scarred? They didn't care? What?! they should have had a better roll and been apart of the final battle. This was probably one of the only films we (as an audience) will see them in and I feel like they were done a disservice by not stepping up their game. Those bitches are fire and should be portrayed as such!

    • PepperG FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Oh and early on in the Vid James makes a fair point about the movie being directed at women because of certain lines, but there is that "the world doesn't deserve you" moment in BvS Martha tells Superman to be everything that the world wants him to be or to be none of it because he doesn't owe them anything. Which I thought was a nice parallel between the two characters that reflects how similar they are. Thoughts on this?

    Written by 3 dudes, directed by a woman, starring a woman. You can look at it as in simple of terms as you want but tat the end of the day people came together to make a movie, Who cares WHAT these people were born as, its their experiences and personality and talent that came together to make a good movie. This can also happen for bad movies.

    On the topic of diversity which was discussed, I just wish we could get to the mindset where it doesn't fucking matter if you have a vagina or penis, if you skin is purple or whatever as long as you are the best actor that fits the job the best. I agree with james that it is a good thing that people are not only cast to stereotypical roles but have an opportunity to be in any role that they might be the best actor in. That is how it should be. I disagree with excluding people based on their race and I disagree with the idea of hiring people by their race as well. I think forced diversity for no reason other than the "its about time" argument or the "for simply diversity sake" argument is bullshit and somewhat racist. True equality and opportunity comes out of neither of those stances. People should not complain about an all white movie or an all black movie or a mixed bag with every race movie as long as the actors in the movie all had equal opportunity to be cast and the people hiring did the best they could to hire the people who fit the movie the best. Also politicizing movies always is a turn off. I am not going to see Wonder Woman as "a historic landmark for women", I am going to go see it as "this is going to be a well directed superhero movie with a kick ass protagonist". That is all. I don't care Wonder Woman has a vagina in the same way I don't care Iron Man has a penis.

    I'm starting to think that the reason i love Funhaus so much is because every member is a different version of myself. Lawrence is my weeb side. James is my workout-guy side. Peake is my humble side. Bruce is my fun-loving laughs-a-lot side. Elyse is my womanly canadian side and Adam is my secret cuck side.

    I know no-one particularly cares about my opinion, but I'm a little surprised none of the crew had major problems with it. I've seen it twice, and came out being disappointed the first time, and actively disliking it the second. Again, no-one asked for what I thought, but normally I can count on Funhaus to even falsely present at least one starkly different view from the consensus, so I'm just.. left lacking, I guess. I don't need everyone to agree with me, but so far only my girlfriend has shared my disappointment, and I'm, again, surprised. I'm glad they liked it, I suppose.

    It's interesting to note that in this instance, where women have a successful movie to hang on their hat on, that "representation doesn't/shouldn't matter, who cares about gender"...but last year the internet blamed the Ghostbusters remake almost entirely on the female cast like it was their idea and their fault, to the point where some of them had to leave social media.

    • VaultHunter26 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      4 months ago

      Well the new ghostbusters had a lot of problems and was handled really poorly with everyone involved. The female cast was almost forced on as a statement essentially implying the fact the first one only allowed male protagonists on purpose. It was absolutely politicized. I guess that wasn't the only problem, the director lashed out at original fans. Actors that were associated on it made fun ghostbuster fans as being "basement dwellers". Great way to alienate the fan base that is interested in your product. Also the biggest problem is the movie just fucking sucked and lacked anything good the first two did. Put all of that into a pot and it lost money! Big surprise! People blamed it on the "sexist" "women hating" nerd culture. Well guess what? What will those people say about Wonderwoman? Notice the director never politicized anything only the media is doing that. Never made fun of comic book fans and actually made a decent movie. Guess what? It is wildly successful. Amazing how that works.

    • kcramthun FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      4 months ago

      Well yeah, that's why it was successful. I just flatly disagree with the "gender doesn't matter" narrative. I've gone to the movies with my niece, who is 14 now, maybe a dozen times, and this is the first time I've seen her freak the fuck out in excitement in the middle of a movie. Like yeah, for me, I don't really care about her gender, Gal Gadot was just a stunning badass. But to my niece, she was a role model. So to that extent I say representation does matter, despite Hollywood politicking and agendas. Even for Ghostbusters representation mattered, because no matter how bad the movie itself was, it still made little girls realize that they could dress up as Ghostbuster's too. That's whats important, not the studio executives who made the wrong decisions. 

    • peckpogydah Peckpogydah

      @kcramthun  Movies shouldn't be where girls get their empowerment. I raise my daughter to believe she can do anything and that gender roles are a societal construct. I tell her to do what she feels she wants to do. She is 12, she wears a lot of dresses, skirts and make-up, she presents herself in a very feminine way but she also skate boards, plays video games and rides 4 wheelers. 


      Gender does matter to some people but it shouldn't.


      As much as people don't want to believe it, the reason your niece was so happy to watch Wonder Woman is the same reason some males pay women less. 

  • kcramthun FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    I think the reason why this movie feels different tonally from the other DC Universe movies is because this is the first time DC managed to make their tone work for an entire movie. It still has that dark nature about it, of gods and men and brooding whatever, but they balanced it with uplifting moments at every turn and it just felt...whole. 

  • AzuStar FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    Yknow, i've had some trouble figuring out how much representation "should" matter. even when the rep is geared towards me, statements like "it shouldn't matter that X was Y, it should matter that this was a great movie on its own" do make me wonder where the line should be drawn about how much we should praise these decisions being made. 


    that being said, Elyse reminded me whats important here is that this kind of representation does actually matter to actual people, marginalized and/or in the minority. there are women out here who actually care about a women led superhero movie directed by a women being so good and successful for various reasons, especially because it's not as common for women to get that kind of chance front and center. Representation thought of in that realistic, down-to-earth sense just gets me so pumped up, even if i dont know if it's completely right. the thought of children watching media like Wonderwoman (Or black panther later) and going "HELL YA" not in-spite of their identity but in-part because of their identity makes me excited. Great podcast as usual.

      to be fair, i think the director being a women is mainly important because it might help open up directing jobs for other women in the industry. id assume this success matters most to women directors and the people who can hire them in the entertainment industry, as well as anyone who wants to see women succeed.

    The sniper dude who was introduced as the PTSD, can't take the shot guy did absolutely nothing. The most annoying thing about the movie was all of the extra character development with no payoff. Wonder Woman and Captain Kirk could have carried the movie all the way through.

    I loved Wonder Woman! I thought it was a great film all around. I'll have to see it again to give a non-"afterglow" review.


    My only complaint is David Thewlis's fucking mustache... Seriously, I can put up with him having it as Ares in the modern times battling Wonder Woman (cause he's trying to fit in with the people of the time), but I cannot believe for a second that a Greek fucking god would have a mustache like that and not a majestic beard.


    But great movie! Despite this glaring detail haha

    The Dark Knight will forever be the best super hero film. But if we're not counting that because it's not the atypical popcorn super hero bash, then I'd say Winter Soldier takes the cake.

    However Wonder Woman was definitely up there and it's the first thing in the new line of DC that matches the quality of the MCU

      Yup, Winter Soldier was what sold me on Marvel. I never enjoyed any of the films except Iron Man 1 before that. Im a DC boy at heart though, grew up watching JLU. So I loved BvS and MoS even with the flaws. But now that we got an actual AWESOME movie this time for DC, I fucking love Wonder Woman! I really hope she becomes the new top DC hero.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Adam and Bruce for reaching out to Joel from MST3K and having that quick little talk at the end.  For those of us that are huge fans of the series, and also those who backed, supported, and loved the newer Netflix season, this was a real treat to see.

      Yeah, I liked that too even if it was just a quick chat. I don't think Joel really realized that people riffing on video games, especially bad ones, is just a different form of the idea behind MST3K for people. I gave $100 to the kickstarter to bring it back and another $100 to Rifftrax for the Reunion show, which was also awesome.


      I went to the last Cinematic Titanic Live show on New Year's Eve a few years ago here in Pa and it was so awesome but felt bittersweet at the time because I didn't know if they were going to do anything ever again. As soon as I heard Joel was putting together a Kickstarter to bring back MST3K, I pretty much threw my money at my computer screen.

    This movie was so wonderful for women to see. As Elyse said, we are rarely displayed on screen as the powerful, independent one. Elyse's excitement is the same that I think most women felt watching this. The message isn't just about woman-power, but also shows the ridiculousness of war. Wonder woman didn't rely of anyone, she feels compelled to save people and doesn't let any 'issues' to stop her.

      Strong female characters in film are certainly becoming more popular, but I wouldn't say tons and as my niece pointed out, this was the first time one actually stuck with her. The movies they're depicted in are either too mature for her age, or they're lazily written (insert rough street urchin backstory here) and they didn't leave an impression. Before, all she had was animated female characters and Hermoine.

    You know, I'm kind of hoping that the love interest in Wonder Woman 2 is female. And it's not because of any SJW or Feminist Nazi or PC reasons. My reason is in logic. All her life, Diana was on an island filled with a lot of beautiful and gorgeous Amazon women. So when puberty struck and her hormones were raging, where do you think she was going to get some? I mean, it's pretty reasonable to assume that a grown woman like Diana who's been raised entirely be females her entire life would have a sexual interest in women as well.


    Am I wrong?

    • Axerty FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I'm hoping there's no love interest. She clearly still feels for Captain Kirk, she responded to Batfleck giving her the photo with "thanks for bringing him back to me".

      I don't think they need to shoehorn a love interest in just to have one.

    I think my favorite part of this movie was the (spoiler) twist of Ares because WWI is known as a result of competition and egos, not Nazis being Nazis so by the grace of Diana meeting an American she assumes Germans are bad, but gives them the benefit of the doubt that Ares started the war. To find out Ares was aiding Britain all along and there were Germans who wanted peace but had to deal with someone like Ludendorf shows how grey the whole thing is.


    Now if they do WWII I'm not sure how or if it would be a good idea. Captain America had his time to fight Nazis and it was pretty predictable as a result, so if Ares comes back and whispers to Hitler it's not as interesting as this movie. I think it might be better to just say she was unaware of WWII because she stayed on her Island and when she learned what happened, she decided to frequent the world of man, leading up to BvS. Basically keep her more like Thor than Captain America, I don't want her siding with Americans after she learned how grey the world is, I'd rather see the next WW movie focus on Ancient Greek mythology.

    Wonder Woman was good, I didn't figure out the twist until just before it happened. It was a well written story but the dialogue could have been much better. The direction was good for large group battles but the slow motion, stare at the camera with fist outward was always jarring and a bit annoying.


    One of the better super hero movies, not very close to the top ones since it mostly stuck to the formula and pacing of the Hero's Journey. I liked it better than GotG2 and Dr. Strange personally, and definitely better than all DC movies since TDK.

    My only real gripe with this film was the devolution into a beam fight at the end, which I thought was uninspired. Other than that I absolutely loved the film, the time period, the characters, the acting, and the messaging was on-point, and the action scenes were executed very well for the most part. It felt fun and engaging, nothing like the dreary, deep and depressingly dark Snyder-fests that have plagued the main DC films of late, and the humour was so much better than I expected, on par at least with any Marvel equivalent.


    It has made me an instant fan of Wonder Woman as a character, especially Gal Gadot's excellent portrayal. Eagerly anticipating her role in Justice League and future standalone instalments .

      Breaking the sword and Ares' revelation were cool, but then not having a weapon and doing a discount kamehameha was a bit anti-climactic. I went back to see how she kills Ares in the animated movie, grabbing a sword and decapitating him after he gets smite by lightning is definitely more satisfying.

    I thought it was pretty good but please tell me I wasn't the only one who felt awkward seeing the different speed paces in Diana's Rage scene and her final scene where she's charging up? It sure felt a bit janky. 


    And Dr. Poison really only served as a plot device. She and Diana never even fought at all.


    Still like the movie and I do believe it's the best DC movie so far, just pointing out its flaws because even the best have some flaws.

    I went into this movie expecting something way different than what I saw. I thought there'd be more feminist bullshit but it was pretty light on it. The action was great. The feels were there. The humor was great also. It's easily the best DC movie next to the Dark Knight. And it's easily better than most of the marvel movies. In my opinion of course.
