    The scene that gave me a serious WTF moment was when they went to the
    Smithsonian and got into one of the aircraft on display-- a fighter jet, >>> which for some reason, was fully fueled and ready to go--
    Amazon women with super human strength are no cause to suspend
    disbelief, obviously, but a sequence in the Smithsonian would have to
    be. As if she didn't use her magic lasso to make it work.

    But Star Wars is super credible, right? You fucking dipshit.

    The writers were lazy, just like you, "Trotsky."


    I just saw the movie and it sucked. It took me four tries to finish it without falling asleep. The best part, the message of hope at the end
    which was CLEARLY directed at surviving the massive pile of horseshit
    that is Trump. But tell me, anonyshit, how it is you've come to know
    I'm "lazy". Is it because I have a cite for everything I discuss and
    you don't have dick?

    There are some monumentally stupid scenes, like Chris Pine being "astonished"
    by subways, and escalators(around since the early 1900s) even though they've
    had subways in New York since 1904 and London since the 1800s!! He was from >>> WW2, for God's sake.
    WWI, but yeah that was dumb, then he hops in a jet fighter (looked like a British
    Panavia Tornado, though why one would be at an aircraft museum in 1984 I dunno?)
    and is able to fly it with no problems…

    I watched about half of the movie last night and found it pretty boring so far.

    Though Kristen Wiig looked good in a tight slinky dress.

    That's one of the oldest tropes used in Hollywood. The mousy looking woman who is actually hot and becomes it. Most women who are hot know they are hot.



    Are you talking about the character or the actress? So you're saying
    Wonder Woman flying through the clouds wasn't much of a stretch but
    Kristen Wiig's character dressing up for the occasion was too hard to
    believe. Wow do you sound like an asshole.

    they are hot.
    "Most women who are hot know they are hot." ... and tend to be
    obnoxious and egotistical, which makes them extremely UNattractive.

    Which she kinda became...


    Yes, too bad she didn't look like Trump. Then you'd be aroused you sick
    fuck.
