a guillermo del toro star wars movie. Thoughts?

for an anthology movie, yeah! it would be cool to let the non-saga films go buckwild with different creative styles/tones. i’m definitely thinking like a gothic sith tragedy (….the tragedy of darth plagueis the wise….? lmao) for del toro, something dark that he could make his signature stamp on star wars with

There was nothing I could do by then, though. I tried, but Howard had so much money and influence and I’d given up all my parental rights.

Howard. Maria.

Steve stared at Peggy’s letter in growing horror.

No.

I screamed.

Spoiler alert.

The Ice cream scene in the WW movie seemed forced to me. It had nothing to do with the plot and it was evident by everybody’s clothing it was cold as hell in London. Not the best moment to sell ice cream. If you have to hold your cone with gloved hands, you probably shouldn’t be eating ice cream.

I’m sure it was Geoff Johns who shoved it there, because he most certainly was proud of that funny moment on the pages of JL. It worked fine there and in the animated movie “JL: War”, but here…meh…

People like Kathleen Kennedy are so creepy and dangerous because they claim to stand for equality but then don’t act according to it. KK wants her public image to be that she actively fights for a diverse cast in the Star Wars movies and that she’s a huge feminist. But then she’s the one who actually prevents more diversity and the reason why a Star Wars movie won’t have a female director anytime soon. People who aren’t hardcore fans and don’t have all of the sources might think she’s a progressive thinker and thus would like her and even support her, when in reality she is preventing progress in the SW universe and at the moment seems to be allowed to do whatever she pleases…

Back home when I tell people what I do for a living, they think, “Well, that figures.” But over here, it’s a big mystery. So I guess I’ve changed some. Sometimes I wonder if I’ve changed so much my wife is even gonna recognize me, whenever it is I get back to her. And how I’ll ever be able to tell her about days like today. 

Ryan… I don’t know anything about Ryan. I don’t care. The man means nothing to me. He’s just a name. But if… you know, if going to Ramelle and finding him so he can go home, if that earns me the right to get back to my wife, well then, that’s my mission. 

You wanna leave? You wanna go off and fight the war? Alright. Alright, I won’t stop you. I’ll even put in the paperwork. Just know that every man I kill, the farther away from home I feel.

#yo witwer i’m really happy for you #imma let you finish #but what’s it gonna take to get the rest of you in a star wars movie??? #BECAUSE I NEED IT NOW BRO

So I just Saw Wonder Woman

And it was the perfect marriage of my two favorite genres, the superhero movie and the war movie. So I’m going to nerd out for a minute.

- Diana kicks so much ass in this movie, she is unquestionably the star and her fight scenes are so cool. Just beautifully choreographed and stunning.

- The sound design on this movie is really good, every time the Wonder Woman theme played I got chills. And there is one moment where the German general touches Dr. Poison’s face implants and it makes the sound that ceramic makes and it was such a small detail but it stuck out to me.

- Steve Trevor is perfect. I have nothing else to say I’m just in love with him.

- The side characters all had very small roles but they were so memorable. Like I got enough of what I wanted from all of them and I really liked them. They all had a moment, the Amazons, Etta, Steve’s squad, but they never took over the movie for me nor were they superfluous.

- Diana deserves to be happy and I love her so much.

On note of some of the War stuff that I loved so so much:

- They use grenades correctly!!!!!!!!!!
• Which is so huge they never do that in moves but when they actually want to use bombs they use bombs and not grenades that just happen to explode fire and not shrapnel.

- The bunkers were so cool and the no mans land scene was amazing!!! It looked so perfect.
• I had moment when they took over a village that this worked perfectly as a war movie, like it fit with say Band of Brothers. The way it was filmed was so fitting.

- I truly believe that this was a war fought with normal people trying their best that just happened to have a superhero dropped into it.

- This movie really understands WW1. Like the way people felt and acted about and in the war. The environment, the weapons, the politics, and, most importantly, the changing understanding of war. It felt like it respected the conflict.

- Which, as much as I love that movie and I do, is something captain America the first avenger didn’t do. It got the comic book part, but not the actual war. It understood the cheesy, obvious aspects of WWII, punching nazis and fighting for good and freedom, but the larger conflict the larger moral lessons and feeling of that war was left unexplored. Which is not something I begrudge. They made a superhero movie for my favorite marvel hero which I loved. But Wonder Woman actually made a war movie. And I love and respect that so much. 

 - CONCLUSION: WONDER WOMAN is so great. It’s spectacular and I love it and I’m gonna see it a thousand more times. It’s the kind of movie I can watch over and over again and if this is DC going forward I want to see more! Go see Wonder Woman!!!
