    If all the gods are dead now (killed by Ares) perhaps they can all be reborn or restored for WW3 somehow (like how Zeus was reborn in New 52).

    My point was quite simple. If someone (film critic, friend, relative) watches a movie and says "I didn't like it... I thought it was rubbish" then personally I'm never like "I'm not going to like it... I think it's rubbish". I will always go and see for myself. I have seen many poorly reviewed films that I have enjoyed and I have seen many well received movies that I have disliked. I'm not saying to completely dismiss critic reviews (some are insightful and well written) but perhaps rely on your own judgement and personal opinion at the end of the day rather than someone else's. I would never completely dismiss a movie if it was poorly reviewed.

    I sat through Baywatch the other day which was poorly reviewed and I agree it was absolutely atrocious, but it's one of my friend's favourites and she was laughing hysterically the whole way though. She clearly didn't care what critics or other people thought and good for her as it clearly brings her enjoyment.

    I love the drum beats and how they are well sync'd/edited in the trailer part with young/old Diana running.

    Welcome to the future.... Life is good, but it can be better. And why shouldn’t it be?
    All you need is to want it. Think about finally having everything you always wanted.

    “I have an idea and I'm like, maybe it would make [the movie] shorter. We're not going to officially say [how long the movie is] yet, however it's in a good territory.” (She was willing to reveal that the first cut was 2 hours and 45 minutes, adding, “It wasn't like three hours and a half; I’m not that kind of filmmaker.”
    So my friend Micromind, apparently in the "notorious" test screening back in October, people saw the first cut of the movie, because leaks on Reddit mentioned that the movie was about 2:40 long.So practically they saw everything Patty shooted. Another proof about the real use of test screenings, and why we must not take for granted various "scoopers" and "leakers", who basically all they want is attention for the sake of attention.

    I think this is pretty important, as it could be the theme of the movie. And, I think it's a great thing that they are going with this theme, I don't think any Superhero movie will be brave enough to address the issue, it's got more to do with weakness humans have.

    I have seen some trailer reaction videos on YT and some people are comparing the movie's music and colorful visuals to Thor Ragnorak but it's actually set in 1984, so using the 80's music makes more sense (which Thor Ragnorak wasn't)

    The colors and tone is more in line with Donner's and Lester's Superman movies, particularly, Superman 2 -Donner Cut and Superman 3. (Which were made in 1980 and 1983).

    Also, pointing out they're surprised to see vivid colors is bit odd, Aquaman and Shazam were very colorful. (I guess some might have skipped those movies.)

    When the movies are made and set don't necessarily dictate the visuals and color palettes. Thor and this are both using neon aesthetic. Donner's Supermans didn't do that at all.

    Aquaman and Shazam were colorful, but not neon like this one is.

    I love it. It reminds me of the babysitters club tv series and I mean that in a good way. With so many blockbusters out it’s important to look different. No-one would mistake this for marvel or Star Wars. I think it’s the best

    Loved loved loveddddd the trailer. The music pairing with the footage was fantastic. That song is now my kickoff song on my workout playlist.

    Really curious to see if Patty makes the movie shorter. If she does, I can't wait for the post-release interviews and if she details what she changed.

    Yeah, the music added a lot to the trailer. Great song choice and very well integrated with the trailer content.

    Between Disney's muted color palette the fact that this movie is so beautifully colorful can help it so much. It instantly looks different than Disney's blockbusters

    I thought maybe TROS would look decent but nah, still bad
