[quote]I knew it was going to be PC and downplay the sex-appeal and Russ Meyer-ish of Wonder Woman.
This chick needs implants pronto...instead they will make her look flat and lame like Elektra and she'll be too buff probably.
Wonder Woman isn't buff...she doesn't rely on brute strength.

[quote]She wasn't all that built in the latest Justice League: War animated movie.
Look at those images you posted. Her legs especially. She is drawn to look pretty strong in that film. And she was definitely drawn tall in that as well. That design is on par with most versions of W...

Ok. First came Super Friends Wonder Woman. Original design, again, not bodybuilder bulky, but the comics beforehand never had her as super built either, but not really skinny. Later Super Friends design was a bit more built. Next came Ruby Spears Superman cartoon design, which was same as last s...

[quote]Actually there have been many adaptations of a skinny WW. People would just rather a built one.
What adaptations? Most animated versions present her not female bodybuilder built but still strongly proportioned. And Linda Carter and the failed TV pilot are the only real adaptati...

[quote]Geez, she might be fine as an action star. That isnt the complaint. She doesnt fit the visual of the character, outside of being tall-ish with dark hair.
Can you explain how she doesn't fit the look of Wonder Woman? In terms of build, you may be right, but that all depends on h...

[quote]Too bad she'll be directing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman: Kid's Meal Edition.[/quote]
I still say that 1) Let's wait until we see Gal Gadot in action as Wonder Woman before blasting her and 2) Zoe Saldana, in Guardians of the Galaxy, wasn't body-builder looking as Gamora, yet still looked bad...

Excluding The Thing, you stole my answer, man! I'll add Raiders and Last Crusade. Maybe Transformers: The Movie for nostalgia's sake!...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Liam Neeson was almost cast as Ra's Al Ghul on Arrow - PattyRay38 on 10/8/14 at 3:54 pm|
Based on the announced characters on both Arrow and Flash, better bet is going to be Firestorm (going to be on Flash) or The Atom (as Brandon Routh is playing Ray Palmer on Arrow). I would be down for a Firestorm show!...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: What's your favorite Superman theme song? - PattyRay38 on 9/29/14 at 7:44 pm|
For me, as a HUGE fan of the Chris Reeve Superman, the John Williams theme will always be the best. Like Richard Donner says, that theme says the word "Superman" in beginning of the main part of the melody. Though I will say, the Hans Zimmer theme, surprisingly, has become a favorite as well, soundi...

Yeah, it's simply a local grocery chain owned by nice enough people, but yeah, the Drusilla location had gone downhill. I find the Jones Creek location questionable as well, because as a vendor, myself and other who work for other vendor companies have pulled MASSIVE amounts of out of date items fro...

This is strange to hear, to be honest, as I had the VHS for E.T. really on (I was born in 82) and can't not remember either having the VHS or seeing the movie on TV. ...

No, but is it a shithole speedtrap that, circa 2000, was pretty fricked in that the mayor was the town judge and the head prosecutor. Anyone know if that Officer Punchard dillhole still hides in the bushes waiting to give out tickets?
*Before anyone chides me on "follow the law and don't speed,...

You know I had to bust your chops on this one. I just tend to be a stickler when people make what sound like absolute statements when discussing a subjective thought. Just like people ...

Pal, just remember, for some of us, Man of Steel DID live up to its hype. I know you left the theater with a "meh" reaction, but I saw it twice in the theaters and really dug it both times. ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Dumbest traffic ticket you've ever received? - PattyRay38 on 5/5/14 at 5:22 pm|
I was coming back from working the grocery store in Woodville MS through St. Francisville. There was road contruction going on just past the Myrtles, 35 MPH. A coworker had gotten a ticket that morning, so I was going 30. I saw a cop by an intersection waving his hand up and down as if signaling to ...

I'll say again, I have been a mostly regular Spider-Man reader dating back to the early 1990s, and I thought the movie was not only good, but also a faithful amalgamation of various versions if the Spidey mythos. ...

Well, Electro from the comics has never been a true A-Lister. He has long been a villain that gets a good deal of mocking,...
