Israel's bombshell movie star
« on: June 07, 2017, 05:18:56 PM »
What irks the Paleswinians more, a beautiful Israeli actress who speaks at length with pride about her years in the military --- fighting Hamas --- or the fact Gal Gadot is the first woman star in cinema history whose film earned more than $100 million in its opening weekend?

Wonder Woman, indeed!  :thumbup: :wub:

I've seen this 2.5-hour film, which does a good job in World War I battle scenes, particularly when the naive young Amazonian princess simply can NOT stand idly by as men die all around her. It's long, it's big-budget, and lots of very good war-in-the-trenches photography. It may also be the highest movie earner this summer, if not all year at the sorry rate Hollywood's been going.

What it does not have are the U.S. red, white and blue from the original costume, this time darkened into a more dramatic (but still skimpy) battle outfit. Gal Gadot, a former Miss Israel and a contestant as Miss World, manages to look pretty good anyway.

If you mean, does the movie have a name, you're too isolated for your own good.

You may want to reread your description again. Unless one is a follower of movies or comics, your description down right sucks. I thought you were referencing some Israeli movie about WWI and comparing it to Wonder Woman or some such nonsense.
FWIW, I have no interest in seeing it, just not into the whole superwoman type PC BS crap.

Completely out of context with a  :thumbup: and a  :wub:. From what you had just written, how was anyone to make the connection to the movie?
Note the title update: :rolleyes:

Did it take place in Israel, was she fighting Palestinians as you allude to in your opening line?
Look, I get it, you're enthralled with Hollyweird and every character they produce, but seriously, you're alone in your admiration of the Freek Squad.
The title alone leads one to assume this movie was made in Israel, even your opening line leads one to believe it takes place on Israels border.
Then you skip a line, reference Wonder Woman, as if maybe the character looked like Linda Carter, then jump to having seen the movie yet give no link, not even a trailer, which, by the way, is available.

I said I get it. I happen to respect the industry which constitutes America's greatest export and employs hundreds of thousands of Americans (and others, worldwide). Like you I often deplore the treatment of certain politically-themed issues. But I also applaud what is RIGHT About that industry and the technical advancements now in use by other nations' film makers.

Wonder Woman is the first major film directed by a woman and took 15 years to develop, into a long but important background of the iconic female hero --- in the 1940s completely unique even though it WAS invented by a socialist. Not one iota of Moulton's beliefs are evident in this film, and I was watching intently but it never came.

Did it touch on depraved indifference to the body-counts by the Brits? Yes. I had just read how Pershing held off sending AEF troops into battle until they were fully trained on UK and French equipment --- AND that they go in as entire units, not fill-ins that the UK in particular needed from their loss of thousands of men per day.

This film does show that, very briefly but historically very accurately. It is also an overdue heroine film NOT of Krypton, or from outer space.

The movie does not lie. It offers young women hope just as George Reeves leaped through windows and was faster than a speeding bullet for us boys.

I still recommend it, though it's also probably the only movie I'll see all year in a theater.

I finally watched this movie, inspired by some claims that women super heroes are breaking the traditional men-dominated hierarchy in the Western culture. And I must say, I am surprised how good this movie is. I expected to see some of the feminist agenda, but I have noticed really none. Wonder Woman in this movie is more of a super hero than she is a woman, and when she is a woman, she is truly a lovely one. I love how her character is both feminine, cute, gracious, and powerful, and I couldn't tell why would she be bad for anyone. I can't say the movie is great, because of too much of CGI, also the evil characters are portrayed just briefly, like we should assume who and what they are. I also don't like that floating camera, it looks so unnatural. But overall, it's a movie worth of seeing.

Speaking of hidden symbolical meanings in the movies, can you spot the

TEA
Always the Best


sign? :cool: :cool: :cool:



What are these women wearing to battle?... Oh, baaabyyy!... :wub:

This one line sums the whole movie, lol. :wink:

I grew watching Wonder Woman on TV. That isn't Wonder Woman.

https://www.businessinsider.com/wonder-woman-looks-like-xena-2014-7

Quote from: Fans Are Saying The New Wonder Woman Costume Looks A Lot Like Xena: Warrior Princess
So far, reactions over the costume are  pretty mixed.

However, fans were quick to notice that the new Wonder Woman outfit looks similar to another female action hero, Xena, from '90s show "Xena: Warrior Princess."

The outfit is supposed to be Red, White, and Blue. And, I never saw Lynda Carter carry a sword.

Well, you know why it wasn't Red, White, and Blue. It's because Liberals (includes Hollywood) hate America.

One has to wonder, why would an European Amazon demi-god Princess from a place called Themyscira, who was sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta, and given a life by the pagan Greek god Zeus, and who came to France to fight her brother Ares, the pagan Greek god of war, be wearing a Stars & Stripes outfit? :laugh: I suppose it was her American outfit, but when she is in France, then she wears the French one. :lol:



I also grew watching Wonder Woman on TV during 1980s. And to be honest, I prefer Lynda Carter's costume better, because it was a bit more feminine and sexy. But I have always disliked her feminist political propaganda which appeared time to time in the original show, when she would advice some other woman to liberate herself from the men dominance, that kind of moments spoiled the show for me a bit, even if I was just a kid, that just sucked.

Love the theme song too. :cool:



I hope DC will place another Wonder Woman movie in America and give her back her original outfit.

She's been wearing Red, White, an Blue since the very beginning.
