    This is starting to be a little pet peeve of mine. Someone else mentioned this but it rings true: Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman, Wiig etc., are very attractive women no matter what clothing or hairstyle they have. The whole "I can walk in heels now and wear my hair crazy" villain turn is just boring and lazy...

    To be fair, comic book movies have also tried to tell us that Jim Carrey, Guy Pearce and Jamie Foxx are homely, lonely losers.

    Fair. But it's getting tiresome in general. Especially when, in Cheetah's case, there's multiple versions and origins that they could've gone with instead.

    I'm disappointed with how Cheetah was used in this movie. How she got her powers was dumb.

    I thought she was pretty good in the role actually, and Barbara's transformation arc, as cheesy as it was, was fairly effective and made for a sympathetic supporting villain.

    So, apparently the Razzies nominated Wiig for "Worst Supporting Actress"...

    I had no idea they'd sunk that far. That's, like, some Globes-level nominating someone just to get clicks/views nonsense. She did great in the role, no matter how you feel about the trope. They also nominated Glenn Close, so... :whatever:

    Did anyone actually think it was bad outside of some neckbeards online?

    I feel like they made a bit more effort to convince us that those guys were less attractive. Comb overs, long greasy hair, bad fake teeth and more oddball/eccentric type behavior. It wasn't just wear some glasses, less glamourous clothing and act slightly socially awkward or timid.

    WWE Wrestler Charlotte Flair said she loved the first film but found the sequel boring. She had high expectations and felt WW1984 didn't live up to them.

    Wiig's performance wasn't good IMO, but I think that was mainly due to the poor dialogue she was having to recite. I mean, I'm not sure there are many actors who could make "I want to be a predator. An apex predator" sound good.

    I thought Wiig was very good in the role. Definitely didn't deserve that Razzie nom.

    Did Pascal get a nomination? I don't think either one deserves one, but I'd probably lean closer to him than her.

    Overall I liked Wiig a lot in the role even if I didn't like everything the plot did with her. That at least puts her way above Leto and Eisenberg, who are just awful overall.

    Wiig's performance wasn't bad. The creative team failed Wiig.

    Watched the movie for the first time last night. I thought Wiig did fine in the role. My only complaint with her part was he CGI of her at the end. I thought it was too dark and muddy. Had trouble seeing her. With the amount of time the movie was delayed from it's original release date, they should of done a better job on her.

    I thought Cheetah design could have been better, it was not bad, but looked too human at times.

    After watching the movie again last night Wiig should be nowhere near a Razzie nomination.

    Big disappointment. She could have been awesome. Should have expected it though after how lame Ares was.
