‘Wonder Woman 1984’ might be a beautiful mess, or maybe just a mess – TechCrunch

Was released on “Wonder Woman 1984” Hbo Max on Christmas Day, where it quickly divided the hosts Original Content Podcast.

Perhaps it was predictable that Anthony – a fan of clunky-but-ambitious superhero sequels like “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” – enjoyed the film. Meanwhile, Darrell favored Most critics, Which at times found the film exciting and even mysteriously bad.

The biggest surprise was Jordan, who had previously disliked “Wonder Woman” and really liked the sequel, which was in large part because of Kristen Wiig’s portrayal of the villainous Cheetah.

Everyone agreed that there were problems, including some slipshots and confusing plotting, as well as depictions of Wonder Woman, completely defined by the longing of Steve Trevor, the character of Chris Pine who ended the first film I died or returned here under mysterious circumstances.

But where Anthony found the film’s overall arc – rewriting the melancholy love story of “Superman II” as a parable about capitalism and climate change – and to wonderfully influence its big emotional moments, Darrell thought the entire final acting was catchy, with some of the worst CGI seen in a big-budget film.
