Unfortunately I can't get HBO in the UK so if WonderWoman doesn’t come out in the cinema then I don’t know when I’ll be able to see
it.

I’m rather worried because this was meant to be the bigyear for female lead action films with Birds of Prey, Black Widow, WW84 and James Bond (not female lead but featuring a prominent female agent) all coming out. However due to the pandemic all of them have suffered (to a greater or lesser extent) and are not likely to have the box office returns they could otherwise expect.

I just hope this doesn’t lead to other female lead action/superhero films being cancelled after they have finaly started to become popular.

Same here. Eyes closed when it comes to WW84. 

I got HBO Max just for this, and I truly want to be surprised. All I know now is that its really good. That's enough. 

To my surprise, all kinds of movies are headed to Max next year, simultaneous with theater release. 

Theater owners are freaking, but I love it

If theatres aren't open then it means nothing.
If WB was going to go down this route with HBOmax, they should have figured out and got its international streaming figured out.

Beauty of streaming is that I can download the movie and watch it, or portions of it, again and again, with slow-mo and pause. And extract short segments to make my own library of the best stuff. 

That WAY beats theaters where you have to buy another ticket to watch again. Plus its really hard to get the theater to stop and back up to rewatch the cool parts over and over. <grin>

Theaters are dead to me. Long live the 21st century and streaming with downloaded and saved content.

The MTV clip was great but her super speed run looked a little silly!

Ha but it's a fanboy's dream.  Running down a convoy in her bare feet then pushing a multi-ton vehicle sideways faster than the rest of the convoy? This is awesome!  We finally have the FoS we love in a big budget film.  I am so psyched!

I just got back from watching it and I really enjoyed it.

I won’t do a full review as there are other people better placed to go into details. All I'll say it that it's a good film, there's much less of a big CGI fight at the end and apart from a few minor bits the effects work well.

Also for our particular interest there's quite a few good fight scenes and superpower displays including a fun sequence of Barbra trying out her new super strength at a gym that finishes with her lifting a huge barbell overhead (to the shock of the men watching). Overall I think this is a film most of us will love.

Oh, and there’s a mid credits scene that is pure fan service, not that I am complaining!

Got round to seeing this yesterday, and yup, as I thought, it was woefully bad.

Even the critics, who praised the first one to the moon, don't really like this one (I think its down to 60% or something on RT).

I have a feeling that its because, contrary to what some thought, WW84 isn't really "woke".  You would have to really look for it to see any wokeness, and even then, I think it would be a stretch.

Some were saying Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord was a Trump stand-in, and while you can make that comparison, its really a stretch to be honest.  He's neither Trump, nor Maxwell Lord from the comic tbh.  In fact, he's quite sympathetic in the end (I won't go into it to avoid spoilers for people who have yet to see the film).

What makes the film bad is the muddled plot (stuff just happens with no reason), the pacing (scenes go on too long, or are just not needed), some ropey CGI/green screen scenes, and a messy ending (though not the overblown CGI crap like the first one).

To be fair, all the cast were fine with what they had to work with.  Gadot, Pascal, Wiig and Pine were all fine imo.  In fact, I thought Gal was actually better in this then the first one.

The one thing that was GREAT for fans of superheroine feats was that there was a BUNCH of them in this :)  Much more so then the first WW.  Both Gadot and Wiig had some great scenes in that regard imo :)

Oh and as Highlander said, the mid-credits scene was a nice touch :)

Peace.

I watched it last night and while I don't think it was a high quality film as the first one, I enjoyed it for one reason: a healthy serving of female super strength.  The story line wasn't particularly strong but it was good to see superwomen tossing men around and overpowering machinery.

Shadar, I would love to know what tools / techniques you plan to use to snag clips from the streaming services.  I might PM you.  Obviously the scenes to grab would be the jogging scene and the whole White House scene.  You can throw in the convoy scene as well.  Will be curious on your thoughts.

My 2 cents ...

Enjoy all!

My wife and I watched it at home.  She loved it, I liked it.  We both thought it was better than the first one. Agree with most of the comments.  The special effects and and the non stop action must have cost a fortune.  If you like action, you will love it.  The plot was a little shakey at times (especially if you are an aviation fan or pilot).  Over all, I would give it an 8.

I'm just going to copy what I wrote on discord: Saw WW1984 6/10. Action scenes were kinda meh and story wasn't that great. Dislike superhero movies that depower the hero. Still 3rd best DCEU movie.

At the moment, I don't have any way to do this. HBO MAX on my Mac won't download a movie. It's simply not supported. Stream in real time only via my browser.

I could download it on my iPhone or iPad, where it will only remain for 48 hours after I start watching it. In any case, it will be deleted/won't play sometime in January when the movie drops off HBO Max. And I don't have capture tools for iOS. 

Basically, HBO MAX doesn't want people to have personal permanent downloaded copies. 

I'm presuming it will someday show up in the Apple TV app on my Mac where I can buy and download a permanent copy (I can do that for all other movies in the Apple TV MacOs app), and might be able to do some captures then, but I have no idea when that will be. 

Net, net... this is better than going to a theater given I can watch it over and over, but only for personal viewing and only for 48 hours.  

Surely some people more savvy than me will find a workaround, so I'd keep asking around. 

Also, keep checking YouTube. Some scenes will eventually show up (they always do), although not sure how long they will remain before YouTube copyright enforcement wipes them.

There are quite a few scenes up on Youtube.

Also, there were perfect copies up on the high seas within 20 mins of the film officially launching on HBOMax.

Peace.
