There were some really great moments, the L word kind of let some of the air out it for me, but over all it was ok.

Thought it was a great film. The lead actress did an excellent job appearing strong, empowering and morally conscious. I didn't care for the ending---- thought it eluded a little too much towards a sequel and left a few questions un-answered. For a superhero movie----- one of the best and I really liked that there was no swearing.

This movie is a box office monster. After that phenomenal second-week drop, it has an estimated 40.7 million-dollar third weekend, the fourth best third-weekend tally for a live-action comic book film, and the best third-weekend drop ever for a superhero film (30 %). Just like the first two weekends, the film's estimates are expected to increase due to Father's Day likely Sunday bump. The week-to-week drops Wonder Woman is having are very rare for superhero summer blockbusters, and it is evident at this point that the word of mouth is insanely good. Because of the rate it is going, many are predicting that, despite Wonder Woman opening with less than all three previous DCEU films, it will finish with a higher US total. It could not have happened to a nicer film!!

Best 3rd Weekends for Live Action Comic Book Movies (although, as far as third-weekend tallies, Wonder Woman is fourth, the Patty Jenkins/Gal Gadot smash is # ONE in terms of best third-weekend box office drops for superhero films):

Title (Year) — Third Weekend Gross (Drop from Second Weekend)

1- Marvel’s The Avengers (2012) — 55.6 million (-46.0%)
2- Spider-Man (2002) — 45.0 million (-36.9%)
3- The Dark Knight (2008) — 42.7 million (-43.2%)
4- Wonder Woman (2017) — 40.8 million (-30.3%)
5-Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) — 38.9 million (-50.0%)
6- Iron Man 3 (2013) — 35.8 million (-50.7%)
7-The Dark Knight Rises (2012) — 35.7 million (-42.5%)
8-Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) — 34.7 million (-46.9%)
9-Captain America: Civil War (2016) — 32.9 million (-54.7%)
10- Iron Man (2008) — 31.8 million (-37.8%)
11- Deadpool (2016) — 31.1 million (-44.9%)
12- Spider-Man 3 (2007) — 29.0 million (-50.1%)
13- Iron Man 2 (2010) — 26.4 million (-49.3%)

"Wonder Woman rises above estimates again with final [third weekend numbers] at $41.3M, off only 29% [from weekend 2] [Wonder Woman] beats 3rd weekend of the last 3 films starring Iron Man."




The wondertrain keeps chugging along!

Wonder Woman made me feel righteous as I left the theater. I can't say that other superhero movies have done that. They've been a good deal of fun, but they didn't make me feel righteous.


In the SYFY television series "The Expanse," in the season finale the morally deficient character Amos (who is interesting because he's well aware that his moral compass is broken), tells the lead character, "Thank you. Since I've been with you, I've never had to worry if I was on the right team."


Wonder Woman was like that for Steve Trevor and ultimately for the audience.

Women Of Twitter Roast Joss Whedon's Ridiculous 'Wonder Woman' Script

In the three weeks since its release, “Wonder Woman,” has been hailed as a female-powered success: countless think pieces and viral posts have been written about the power of seeing women’s stories on the big screen. But Hollywood’s story of Wonder Woman was almost told by Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “The Avengers,” and “Toy Story.”

A month after his screenplay was released online, women of Twitter are tweeting their gratitude that it wasn’t Whedon’s rendition of “Wonder Woman” that made it to the big screen.

Like so many Hollywood screenplays in which men try to tell women’s stories, the language and dialogue in Whedon’s is objectifying and almost perverted, reading more like Reddit fan fiction rather than a superhero blockbuster.

Diana’s introduction in the screenplay is the first major red flag ― she’s described as “curvaceous, but taut as a drawn bow,” and in another scene, she participates in “a dance that is sensual, ethereal, and wicked sexy.”

Women on Twitter highlighted other cringe-worthy moments in their tweets.

Spoiler
In the final battle, Diana spins around, in tribute to her spinning transformation in Wonder Woman (1975).

I thought the spin thing was the dumbest thing about the television series. 'Way too girlie. You can't twirl around and then go kick butt.
