Out of the Blue

I was not expecting the Wonder Woman movie to get positive reviews, much less raves, but DC's new superhero flick seems to be killing it, and it's currently sitting at 79 on Metacritic, 12 points higher than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. After a surprisingly successful trip to the theater for Guardians, this has me considering pushing my luck and going out to see this one as well. Hard to believe they're getting better results than from Batman and Superman. Sometimes the movie business makes you wonder.

I actually liked Prometheus way better since all I wanted to see was a Space Jockey and more mysteries and that's what I got out of it.

This is what I don't understand. They left with wanting to go to the Founders homeworld. Wtf happened to that? Now that could have been interesting.

I am hoping the director's cut on Blu-Ray may add something more as it did with Prometheus. I agree that this movie should have dealt more with the Engineer's homeworld called "Paradise". What we saw in this film didn't appear to me to be that. The inhabitants of this planet only looked "engineer-like". There was speculation of two factions of the Engineers - the Creators, and the Destroyers. Ridley seemed focused on evolving the proto-xenomorphs into the Alien xenomorph. I don't really care much about that. And I really didn't need to see more face huggers, chest busters, or back busters. And the whole "I'm in charge but nobody respects me" angst of the schlub in charge was tedious.
