The ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie Sucks

While I’m not surprised, this is fucking terrible news, because female-led superhero films are judged by totally different metrics than male-led ones.

If a male-led superhero movie sucks, they remake it in two years. Or it gets sequels and spinoffs. It’s no one’s fault. It’s not a big deal. If a female-led one bombs? Well, it’s because boobs sell, but the women attached to them don’t, and studios don’t want to make anymore of them.

An insider told Crave that Wonder Woman has all the same shitty problems as every other superhero movie Warner Bros. and DC keep churning out.

‘I’m very disappointed in what I saw, and it seems like all the problems are the same problems. It’s discombobulated, it doesn’t have narrative flow. It’s just very disjointed.“

Remember how high quality Suicide Squad and Man of Steel were?’

All the trademark Jared Leto pretentiousness in the world couldn’t save that kind of narrative dumpster fire.

Look forward to two more hours of that shit.

It’s tough to kill Suicide Squad when it made $745M. It really is time for movies fans to realize that the target audiences are changing. Attention Deficit, stupid teens and the Chinese. That is who brings the bank, so you get crappy blockbusters made for them.

If you want writing, watch cable TV, Brit films or PBS.

Suicide Squad is spawning an all female spin off movie…
So, I guess Isadora’s right – tits do sell? Because if the movie is deemed bad but then spawns a spin off with only the female characters, it can’t be because the characters are great… right?

If anyone is interested in actual journalism and reporting the truth rather than just internet clickbait and negative muckraking, this story has been discredited.

An incompetent studio that churns out dog tripe over and over deserves a bucket of SHIT dumped on their office desks.

Is there a source for this being discredited. I really want the movie to be good.
