Red Pill Movie Review — Wonder Woman


Warning — Spoilers Ahead

This flick is quite an improvement for a DC comics movie.  It actually had characters that I cared about; ones that you hope succeed.

First of all, you have Wonder Woman.  She is easy on the eyes, has lots of close-ups to take advantage of this, and furthermore looks good in period clothing.  She doesn’t “mug” for the camera (think Ghostbusters), is not obnoxious (yugo girl type), and has a bit of spunk at somewhat appropriate times.  Seemingly, they calibrated her to actually be likable

The second main character is the current Captain Kirk, Chris Pine.  His character tries to do the right thing; going about his business in a non-preachy manner.  He understands the limitations of the world, adapting to them in the best way he sees how. This is the most likable character of the film

The main baddie turns out to be an Englishman pacifist leader in the mold of Neville Chamberlain.  In reality, he is the Greek god Aries, using pacifism in a cynical way to start and prolong wars.  The fact that he is the main baddie is the primary plot twist, as we (and Wonder Woman) are led to believe that German Quartermaster General Ludendorff is the main baddie.  As plot twists go, this one was kind of effective.

Naturally enough there are glaring plot holes.  Many are annoying.  Particularly egregious is the one when Chris Pine’s character feels compelled to pilot a bomber containing extra-bad mustard gas a few thousand feet into the air and a few miles away from the base before sacrificing himself by blowing it up.  Supposedly the extra bad mustard gas would be neutralized by the combustion of the bomber.  If this is so, why didn’t he just blow the bomber up on the ground?  With him a safe distance away?  Alas, Wonder woman needs someone to Pine for and take inspiration from.

The flick has continual specific digs at men and the evil Patriarchy.  Stuff like “secretaries are slaves”, “women should be able to vote”, “women should be allowed entry into the places where important decisions are made”, “men are not worthy of the awesome purity of women”, “women are oppressed because they feel compelled to wear girdles”, “WWI London sucks and is the product of men”, etc.

One annoying theme is that the pure Amazonians are compared to the greedy, untrusting,jealous, evil men that created WWI.  That reminds me of Hillary’s assertion that women suffer most in war.  Also, of the “white feather girls” who traipsed about shaming men into volunteering for military service by questioning their manhood. GirlWritesWhat comments on this in the video below

Another big theme was that “what matters is what you believe”.  This is downright silly.  Feminists and SJWs in general, believe all sorts of thing that do not mesh with reality.  We all pay a price for that.  Right now, we apparently can afford this.  Perhaps not in the future.

To sum up, here is a DC comics movie that doesn’t suck.  The messages that it is trying to drive home can be annoying, but still it works as a story.  Lastly, Wonder Woman looks good without being an “in your face feminist”.

    When Alamo Drafthouse promoted the women only screenings, that put enough of a bad taste in my mouth that I will wait and watch it for free. Even if the movie’s producers are not responsible for the actions of a theater chain, they need to get the message.

    I mean she’s religious, supports Israel and is Jewish ❤ … there's a picture out there of her praying with her young daughter (and very seriously praying at that!) back in 2014 when so many rockets were being sent from Hamas at her country. That was a really hard time for me too… and all the anti-Semitism attacks that happened during that summer. 😦 It was bad.

    In response to the John the Other video, It is not just Canada. Legislation is being passed all over that would not stand up to the judicial review of a high school civics student. It is not going to end well and the justice system is going to have work hard for generations to recover the confidence of the people.

    That they would actually consider preventing the defense from presenting exculpatory evidence to appease the sensibilities of feminists tells me that government does not value men and has relegated them to subhuman status.

    Finally, it could be argued that extradition to Canada should be refused because a fair trial is not possible. That would be embarrassing.

    My female Muslim patients who had grown up in Britain told me that the school inspectors had never intervened when their parents prevented them from attending school, often for years. On the other hand, white working-class parents were bullied by those inspectors when their refractory 15-year-old daughters refused to go. A few years ago it came to light that police in Rotherham had for decades systematically turned a blind eye to the mass sexual abuse of children—at least 1,400 victims—by Muslim men. This type of willful neglect by the authorities came as no surprise to me. On the contrary, it is precisely what I would have expected.

    From all this the terrorists surely draw a great deal of comfort. It gives them the impression of living in a weak society that will be easy to destroy, so that their acts are not in the least nihilistic or pointless, as is often claimed. They perceive ours as a candle-and-teddy-bear society (albeit mysteriously endowed with technological prowess): We kill, you light candles. The other day I passed a teddy-bear shop, that is to say a shop that sold nothing but teddy bears. I am sure that terrorism is good for business, but the teddy bears are more reassuring for the terrorists than for those who buy them to place on the site of the latest outrage.

    As a result, they often massage coverage to find relevance as makers, not mere deliverers, of news. Like many academics, writers, and intellectuals of our bicoastal elite landscapes, they are naturally self-described idealists and left-of-center both politically and culturally.

    Yet Donald Trump’s election as president has redefined the American media by stripping nearly all pretenses off its once carefully sculpted disinterested veneer. In other words, never before in American presidential history—not even during the dark days of Watergate—have the media so despised a sitting president.

    “F*k* you, I’m Millwall”

    On Saturday night in Borough Market, when the three knife-wielding jihadists stormed in to the Black & Blue restaurant, they found themselves confronting a 47-year-old football fan. “F**k you,” said Roy Larner. “I’m Millwall” – a footie club with supporters of surpassing ferocity. He held the Soldiers of Allah at bay with nothing but his fists, enabling other diners to escape, and is now recovering in hospital with stab wounds to his arms, head and chest.

    “F*k* you, I’m Millwall” turned out to be the “Let’s roll!” of the night. If you’re having trouble keeping your London rail termini straight, the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton; the Battle of London Bridge was won on the playing fields of Millwall. Mr Larner seems disinclined to get used to it – and “F**k you, I’m Millwall” is a more encouraging sign of a societal survival instinct than “one love”.

    Evergreen State College erupted in protest two weeks ago when a biology professor Bret Weinstein spoke out against a social justice event that coerced white students and faculty to leave campus.

    Since then, the Olympia, Washington, campus has devolved into chaos, while the school administration cowers and capitulates to student mob rule.

    Things are getting so bad that the school is having issues with a group of bat-wielding vigilantes seeking to “community police” the campus. The school was shut down Monday because of acts of vandalism and window smashing the previous night.

    On Sunday, an official at Evergreen sent a letter (obtained by College Fix) to students, urging them not to carry bats while they roam the campus.

    With that and your earlier link, I think we’re going to start hearing from women over fifty and what they have to say will not be pleasant. If they had treated the boys a little more kindly when they were younger, the boys might look upon them more kindly today.

    As for the French, they may have cause to regret their elections choices so soon after the election. If Marine were in charge, the fleet would already be out of Toulon on its way to the Eastern Med.

    The polls have been playing deliberate games (IMHO) to make it seem close. But last night they had their reputations to consider, they want the next job. All the polls show a decent Tory lead, they reckon a tory majority of 60+ (in a house of 650 seats). She could get one double that without surprising me.

    I think that few like her much after her crap campaign so they haven’t been broadcasting that they’re going to vote for her without enthusiasm. The initial campaign of The May Team & Party died through the utterly inept manifesto of hers (and pretty much only hers). She ain’t no Tory, bruv. And it really shows to anyone that pays attention.

    UKIP isn’t standing against Brexiteer tories, so if you’re in such a seat you have no options beyond abstain, deface or tory. I know people for each of those responses to the dilemma. May has pissed off a lot of people that were supposed to abandon UKIP and vote Tory this time.

    And many look at Jezza and want nothing to do with his lunacy and track record. None of his team have been taking questions on tv lately, just some peripheral spokesmongs that can’t answer the question but don’t fold when questioned. The actual ministers on offer have been liabilities under questioning. Flabbot is merely the most public example.

    LimpDems look doomed due to their utter uselessness but also far more than tiresome obsession with brexit and a second referendum. Polls reckon only 22% don’t just want to get on with BREXIT. I want a diamond embedded, tungsten carbide tipped, pneumatically driven turbo-BREXIT. Or ‘BREXIT’ in other words. It seems that we brexiteers won the argument and the world didn’t collapse (yet). So they’re fishing for votes in 22% that know that the show has moved on…so why vote loon?

    UKIP’s vote will collapse, but as I said, they stood down in many, many seats. Even the thickest, wettest of tories must know they’ve only been lent votes this time round. Next time? Best get brexit done good, or else.

    And the rain just started pouring down here. That usually reduces the votes of the lazy left and yoof voters. Bad news for the left.

    Someone should inform the Shakespeare-in-the-Park thespians who are stabbing a Trump-a-like to death in their “modern dress” Julius Caesar that they’ve chosen the wrong play. What they should be performing is the Bard’s Much Ado About Nothing, a far more accurate vision of contemporary Washington — except, of course, for the comedy’s romantic ending. Nobody’s falling in love with anybody in D.C. these days, but they certainly are wasting time.

    That became clearer than ever even before James Comey’s said-to-be-historic testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday. The former FBI director’s published statement harrumphed for seven pages, but essentially exonerated Trump of collusion with Russia, supposedly the “smoking gun” of the whole enterprise in the first place. Comey acknowledged that indeed he had told the president thrice — to again channel Shakesepeare, in this case MacBeth — that POTUS was not under investigation. It was all about General Flynn, doncha know, and how Trump had tried to get the director to go easy on the fired NSA because Flynn was a “good guy.” In other words, Donald was being loyal to a former employee, as he probably would do in business, as many of us would do, actually, and Comey realized it. Nothing happened.
