That's true but we can still say which movie we enjoyed more.

To be honest, I thought Wonder Woman was good, but I thought It was GREAT.

Wonder Woman has a lot more to unpack thematically, but the way It was constructed from its script to its pacing to its performances was still a lot more interesting to me in the end. I feel like it did a lot more than Wonder Woman.

Still won't see WW, IT however was a movie that I entered with no expectations and thoroughly enjoyed. Probably on of my favorite movies for the the year

I preferred IT. Though as long as I've been waiting for the remake to come out, I gotta say it wasn't exactly what I expected.

I say IT on this one, as the movie wasn't only intriguing in plot, but also with character arc, and fleshing out various aspects such as the 80's vibe, and how kids act as preteens/teens accurately. Wonder Woman was good though.

It was underwhelming to me. I went in expecting to get scared. Minus jumping at the scene where he grabs Bev in the bathroom, it was just alright. I wish they would've given more spotlight to Pennywise though. I thought Bill Skarsgard's acting was incredible. I still enjoyed the film, just not what I was hoping for. Really looking forward to Chapter 2, which I read will have a darker tone than chapter 1.

Why did I compare IT to Wonder Woman? Because both movies are breakout movies that no one expected to be good, and both movies are top five openers of the year. Thats why.

I haven't watched it yet, but the hype for it alone is giving me a shiver down my spine.

Wonder Woman was awesome and I expected a lot from it, but from the looks of it, it can't compare to the stunning work placed on IT.

@agent41: Nah, IT way better.

  • Full cast of flesh of characters. Children actors were > adult ones in WW.
  • Villain made sense and not some poor thrid act twist everyone saw coming.
  • No Snyder/Bay explosive third act in IT like that shitty WW.
  • No need for shitty CGI or Slow Mo to depend on.
  • IT does not need a female role or female director to make it get good RT scores.
  • Low Budget Horror film (35 million) that was third biggest opener unlike the WWs high budget (149 million) for another by the numbers Super Hero film.

IT is better.

Oh really?.

That lame excuse puts all objectivity to rest. And your logic fails to many female lead films that have had bad scores. But i guess your faves female leads only had good scores for being women right?. That sword cuts both ways.

@agent41: Female leads like Alien, Aliens, Terminator, and Titanic all beat out Wonder Woman and much better films too. Movies that cored high with critics before RT. Facts hurt.

WW has good scores.

So does Ghostbusters. Truth hurts. Female films that try to push into typically male dominated film genres get great scores because of Diversity sake.

IT's Beverly was ten times the hero Wonder Woman was too. Bev in this film was a WAAAAAY bigger hero than Wonder Woman.

Your opinion is not a fact. Truth hurts. ghost in the shield, resident evil franchise, just to name a few were not praised by critics. So try harder. titanic what?. That poor helpless girl a better hero?. LOL. alien and sarah who?. 2 women that are nothing next to an iconic super heroine with nearly 80 years of saving the day. Try again.

Based on your opinion.

In their dreams. Wonder Woman was opening doors in the comic genre way before those characters made their debut. WW and her ability to keep some people pressed is incredible. The female Super Hero makes some feel very insecure about their own faves.

All I hear is crying from a WW fan.

Why should I root for a scantily clad chick, with Superman like powers, who was in hero comics? Why is the more down to earth and NORMAL women characters who prevail in insane circumstances of a film, in a male dominated film market less again? Oh right, your a WW fanboy. Thats why.

I will take characters who are normal women who have to "act" and fight their way through insane opposition over a sexed up version of Superman who is played by a Model in real life. lolol.

Real progressive mate.

Oh you wanna go there?. And why is a character like Wonder Woman less than them. I'm not the one who threw that stone first. You did. All i hear is a WW hater trying to impose his opinion as an ultimate truth. What does SM got to do with this?. You sound desperate. Do you wanna talk about the male characters that were doing what ripley and sarah do before those 2 came around?. 2 can play that game.

Sexed up?. I will take a powerful warrior and diplomatic that fights for truth and equality in a man dominated world, over an emotionally unstable and pesmist. Who needs to look and act manly to try to be taken seriously as a strong female. Wonder Woman is badass, independent, brave, without losing her feminity. Sadly others can't relate.

So women must be feminine to be progressive and awesome? S E X I S T.

Also your whole argument of WW being the first female to look up to? Wrong. Wonder Woman was base of Superman, only as a chick for female readers. Real progressive. Wonder Woman is not even the first female hero to look up to. We had 8 heroins before her. http://whatculture.com/comics/8-female-superheroes-who-debuted-before-wonder-woman?page=2

No. But you attacked WW for her looks. So you think women have to be mainly to be awesome. That is what you suggested. There isn't just 1 way to make a strong female.

Superman is not the first hero either. And his character took inspiration from other sources too. Nice try. Saying Wonder Woman is just a female superman is not accurate at all.

Wonder Woman also had more impact than the few female heros before her in the genre. But go ahead and try to discredit her. That's all you do.
