Some fans canít wait to trash the movies just because they were not made by men. To those I say better get used to it because women are going to have even more opportunities to make these movies as well they should.
So people were perfectly fine with the direction in Wonder Woman.
Now when Wonder Woman 84 is released people do not like it because Patty is a female?

Women should stick to rom-coms or period pieces and leave action films to men.

How can they film any movie if they are in the kitchen and not allowed to wear shoes?

Itís not everyone. But itís definitely out there. Iíve even seen the ďGo Woke-Go BrokeĒ comments in reviews for this movie and A. Itís not even a ďWokeĒ movie and
B. Black Panther made tons of movie only surpassed by the Avengers movies.

Just some things about WW84 where I was scratching my head and found confusing and seemed to be huge mistakes and errors in this film. Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen the movie yet...........


1) How was Steve Trevor's character able to just jump inside a modern day 80s fighter jet and know how to fly it? He only flew planes in WW1. Also, a fighter jet could not fly from America to Cairo without it needed to be refueled on the way.

2) For someone to make a wish, they needed to either physically touch the Wishing Stone or touch Max Lord after he became one with it. In the end, Lord was broadcasting on tv telling everyone to make a wish, but no one could touch him, but their wishes were coming true.

3) When Trevor took over that guys body, what happened to the guy spirit, how could Trevor just take over the poor guys body. It was like the tv show Quantum Leap. I found it very bizarre. Were the two men trapped inside the same person?!? At first, I thought the guy had died and Steve's spirit was placed in the guys body and he came to life.

4) How does Diana change into Wonder Woman? She isn't wearing the costume underneath her normal clothes. When she and Trevor are driving after Lord in the desert, she suddenly has her tiara in her hand and she jumps out of the fast moving car and she is suddenly dressed as Wonder Woman, but you can't really see how she changed. I was like "how did she just change?" At least in the WW tv show, Lynda Carter did her twirl and then it was followed by what appeared to be an explosion and she was suddenly WW.

5) What happened to Max Lord at the end? Did he go to prison for almost destroying the entire world?

They were touched by the TV particles. Yes someone actually sat down and wrote that.

The only consequences was a little girl losing because she outsmarted the adults.
I assume Max still has the power of the stone, how do they address that?

As far as #1, because the jet was invisible it weighed much less so it needed less gas...

But the cockpit in which Gadot and Pine were sitting in weighed as much as it normally did because it wasn't invisible. It should have fallen through the much lighter air frame which couldn't support it's weight.

It was a cloaking device more than anything, which means it still had the same weight as it does when it's not cloaked.

He renounced his wish, so I took that as he no longer has the power to grant wishes. If that is true, what happened to the wishing stone?

Yes, the stone should have reformed on the desk.
Yet I guess ignore that, happy ending, yay.

The movie passed a stone so you don't have to.

I didn't care for WW84 that much, it's not awful, but the script and story feel paper thin, and it definitely didn't need to be as long as it was. The action was also pretty weak. Pascal was easily the best part though, he nailed it.

Good job the movie didn't have any glass houses either. Stones can be harsh.

The F111 has a range of 4200 miles. It's 5842 air miles from Washington DC to Cairo.
