Wonder Woman 1984 is the closest thing I've seen in year's to a Richard Donner Superman film. It's bright, warm, hopeful, with well-placed comedy, a hero that exudes optimism, and is about 20 minutes too long and has an ending that doesn't make a lot of sense if you think about it too hard.

Still, I enjoyed it, and the mid-credits scene is just fantastic.

I usually refrain from 'takes' but I've enjoyed Invincible a bit more than The Falcon and Winter Soldier.

I've loved it so far, was pretty much hooked after THAT scene in the first episode.

Ok, I'm completely sold on Heels after the first episode. Hell, the first ten minutes had me in. Great characters with the story painted nicely to bring you in and care.

Watched Zack Snyder's Justice League while home sick the past couple of days and well, it's longer than the theatrical cut, that's for sure!

Honestly, there are some good things about the movie, like Cyborg being a more fleshed-out character, but the longer run time seems to underline some of the problems the movie had long before Wheedon stepped in. There are also the usual Snyder tropes that I am not a fan of in general, characters being creepy, the beating over the head of the audience that superheroes are Jesus metaphors, the suffocating grimness of a group of characters that have decades of being bright and hopeful beacons, etc. It's an interesting watch but I can't say I liked it, not did I hate it.

I liked it a lot more than the Whedon cut.

It's certainly more coherent than Josstice League, and I dug the Cyborg stuff but I think the overall story was way too bloated by the runtime and the slo-mo was overbearing after a while. I'm also not a fan of how Snyder views certain characters and I never will be. Still, it's an interesting counter to the theatrical cut, and im not upset about picking it up, just won't be going back to it anytime soon.
