It was like in one scene she is human, then the next time we see her, she's a cheetah. And there wasn't anything more than an easily missed throw-away line of dialogue to explain it.
    And since he hasn't seen the movie yet, he doesn't realize the cheetah part of her transforming into Cheetah lasts like 10 minutes towards the ass-end of the film.

    Comparing this to how Catwoman was woven brilliantly into Batman Returns is ridiculous.

    Okay a few things.

    1. In Justice League, Diana tells Bruce she cut herself off from the world for 100 years (give or take) so how was she doing Wonder Woman stuff in the 80s out in the open? Surely Bruce would have found it easier to prove she was some kind of immortal goddess like person when she was still doing her stuff 36 years ago instead of basing it on an old photo from WW1.

    2. Why the heck does nobody in the present day seem to recall the time the whole world almost fell apart because someone had the magical power to grant everybody's wishes?

    3. Why was the appearance of Superman in MoS and BvS seen as such a big deal when Wonder Woman, who also has super powers predated him by decades?

    the movie simply adds plot holes to an already confused continuity

    The World in MoS - "OMG, there is a guy who is super strong and can fly. We have been shown that there are people out there with amazing powers. If only we didn't already know that from that time in 1984 when a woman who was also super strong and could fly saved the entire world from a Wishmageddon which also proved to us that actual magic exists. Maybe then this guy with lasers coming out of his eyes might seem a little more impressive, now he is just kinda... been there, done that"

    I'd give it a 5/10.

    It was reasonably entertaining, and the concept was pretty decent. However, I think that the script needed some heavy polishing and a few rewrites in order to smooth out the plot holes.

    I'll give WW84 a 4/10. The performances of Chris Pine, Gal Gadot, and Pedro Pascal were fantastic (Kristin Wiig was horribly mis-cast). I also really enjoyed the entire mall action scene in the beginning. Other than that, I loathed the rest of the movie.

    And it has fallen a couple of more points on the Rotten Tomatoes Critical Score to 61%. It is hovering very close to becoming “rotten”. This is quite a disappointing scenario for a sequel to the most well received movie (critically and audience-wise) of the DCEU...

    yep... the 1984 scenario is one of the biggest issues, and really it added nothing to it. Nothing about that story needed to be told in the 80's, and doing so messed with their timeline.

    And to be fair... the 80's didn't have much in the way of video and security and she was shown to be destroying those when she acted... but if she didn't want to be seen, why not just go in street clothes like her ancestor?! So the idea that there was no record of her but strange crazy sounding witnesses is almost plausable... but why wear a costume if you don't want to be noticed...

    I love the wacky silver age style plot... but yeah, it wasn't done well.

    Glad you liked it. All of those Pitch Meeting videos are pretty funny.

    And Wonder Woman 84’s critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes is now at 60%. Only 1 more percentage point drop and it will become “rotten”...

    I like the first film but found this really dissapointing, it certainly wasn’t worth the 16 quid I spent renting it.

    You actually paid £16 to rent it. When it comes out DVD it will be like £10.
    You should have just downloaded it for free off the internet.

    I will say that on a second viewing, many of the short-falls with this film are made even more apparent...

    Sometimes, a poor movie can be tolerated if there are good action sequences between the hum-drum... unfortunately, this is where WW84 falls short the most.

    Though, I still love the Little Diana scene!

    Yes, I would have gone to see it at the pictures if that was possible so initially I had no problem paying for it, I don’t buy dvds anymore either so I’d have saved a quid if I’d bought it on blu ray.

    First of all, nothing's wrong with that? you made your decision to buy it.

    second: Why not Blu-Ray? or even some High quality 4k technology, with maybe 60 frame per second? I'm not saying it is old but people generally want better fidelity, especially visual

    I actually have both DVD and Blu-Ray but I just have a habit of saying DVD on its own.

    Okay, totally make sense. Yeah, I get it to be honest, certain format will give you nostalgia or having pride collecting those. I should have done the same with my cassette collections.
