Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Why, because you don't like it? It won Best Picture, and is an extremely popular movie. I happen to really like it (its easily Tom Hanks best movie) so, to me, its one of the exceptions to my thought that movies that win best picture generally suck. Its all just opinion, but liking Forrest Gump is not a very rare opinion.

It sounds about as interesting as watching a movie about the US invading Grenada,
So you've never seen Heartbreak Ridge?

Well I never said they hadn't made a movie about Grenada, just that the event would make about as interesting a movie topic as the Iran hostage crisis, at least when it comes to things I want to see.

You'd only be happy if everyone watched everything ever before posting anything. I have not seen Argo, and I won't. I wouldn't have watched it even if it hadn't won awards, but that just confirmed my decision to not see it.

I don't see how saying that Argo isn't a movie I'd like is arguing in ignorance. I can say I'd hate Twilight, and even though I haven't seen it most people wouldn't argue with that statement. There are certain types of movies I like, and Argo isn't something I'm interested in. Its fine for others to like it, its just not something I'd watch.

Anyway, this thread isn't about how I don't want to watch a stupid movie about an event I don't care about. So, let's just go back to people pretending like exercise is magic that can turn twigs into superheros

Yes, because I didn't like it. That's the thing with opinions, you see. My opinion that Forrest Gump is an overly sentimental, overwrought bit of glossy Hollywood twaddle is EXACTLY as valid as your opinion that Forrest Gump is a good film or that Gal Gadot is a poor casting choice for Wonder Woman. It's your repeated attempts to present your opinion as objective fact that puts people off.

Haven't you heard? Chris Terrio the writer of Argo is penning MOS 2.

So your fear of Goyer ruining this movie is unfounded.
Terrio is just rewriting Goyer's script. We don't know yet how extensive his rewrite will be - could be a complete overhaul, could be just a few lines here and there.
I just hope in the sex scene that Chris understands that it's a joke and not a typo when Clark screams "Lana" and not "Lois" during climax.

I always say that what I post is my opinion. But, everything is opinion. Everyone thinks their opinion is right, that's nothing new. I think she's a horrible Wonder Woman, but I've never tried to say others can't like her, I just post what I think, which just happens to not be the same opinion a lot of people have.

Well maybe you shouldn't write how opinions are invalidated then.

But how can you form an opinion when you haven't seen Gadot as Wonder Woman? We haven't even seen a trailer yet.

Seems like you have an uneducated opinion on many, many things.

12 seconds of googling.

Existing real picture of Gal Gadot Airbrushed into seeming to appear to be Wonder Woman.

Its being weaker looking than a 5 year old boy that's the problem.
You really don't understand the very basic concept of exercise, do you?
Of course he doesn't. He does nothing all day, and had never done anything challenging during his all life.
