If you don't mind, may I ask about your thoughts on Wonder Woman, please please? <3
most of my thoughts are [HUMAN EMBODIMENT OF HEARTEYES EMOJI] and are a nebulous mass of how amazing it felt to watch diana kick ass and be beautiful and be kind. and how much I love ww1 stories where the underlying theme is “IT’S ALL A BIG MESS, EVERYONE SUCKS TO A GREATER OR LESSER DEGREE” and how impressive it was that they somehow managed to get some idealism out of it anyway.
I will comment on what was probably my favourite small moment, which was steve talking to the german chemist at the gala. because we so often get presented with ‘spy’ characters and we accept it because they have this label of ‘spy’ or else they’re just…shooting people and being a more charming version of themselves, james bond style. but this was an intelligence agent doing his damn job, ie. making a quick, efficient connection with a stranger and hijacking his way into their trust by directly targeting their personality and weak spots. it didn’t feel charming. it felt tense and unsettling and authentic.
