Sure, they’re from different universes… but what if?
LET’S FIND OUT!
It’s a common enough trope: two heroes meet, they kick the crap out of each other, they team up to fight the real ultimate evil. I blame Wonder Woman for it running off the rails in this case.
Sure, Wolverine was an asshole. That’s just who he is. But she’s the one that escalated the confrontation to a life or death battle RIGHT OFF THE BAT. If she’d been just a hair less confrontational, or more willing to de-escalate the situation once it began, both of them could have survived, and faced the real evil together.
Speaking of which, what the hell was Cyke thinking, airdropping Wolverine blind into the situation, instead of sending in one of the female X-Men to negotiate with the Amazons? It’s almost like he WANTED Wolverine to get…
Rogue One is in the theaters, and doing pretty well ($500 mil, as of yesterday).
I enjoyed it (check out our Geek Gab review), but it does have its flaws. Basically, it’s like cotton candy: pretty, tasty, but no lasting nutritional value.
Mr. Plinkett doesn’t like it, of course. Let’s see what he has to say!
He makes some good points, though he’s far harsher than I am, mostly because of one point: I LIKE action in my movies, and Mike Stoklasa (et. al.) just don’t. Which, let’s face it, is a massive impediment to reviewing movies with any sort of action in them.
Not that the action was perfect (he’s dead on about the lack of character-building dialogue), but cinematic violence and explosions aren’t, in and of themselves, offensive and wrong, even in a “Star Wars” movie.
