Wonder Woman 1984. Took me a few tries.

Just don't like it. Nevermind the idea of Steve Trevor inside another man's body and then sleeping with that said body.

Agreed, my wife watched that and really liked it, and she's not really one for a superhero movie.

Yeah, how they handled Steve coming back and what they had him do in another man's body has not gone over well on numerous message boards and/or other websites.

He just should have never came back. I get it, they wanted Chris Pine back and to give Wonder Woman a love interest. I think, he should have just came back as a flashback during WW1 that we didn't see in the first movie. Then go with a new love interest for WW84 somehow.

The whole plot should have been different. If felt like a TV movie to me.

I am sure there will be one more Wonder Woman movie but I think they have no more try before the Gal Gadot era ends.

My Octopus Teacher: 2021 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary (Netflix)

A cinenmatographer loses the desire to work, and travels back to his South African coastal roots, to recharge himself by free diving in the kelp forests daily. He discovers an octopus wrapped in shells to avoid predation, and a nearly year long daily visitation begins. His curiousity is piqued and his energy for nature photography is reborn as the relationship develops.

Wonderfully filmed, interesting story, really enjoyed it!

Today i watched captain America: The Winter Soldier and damn but it was good. Some really great action, some shocking twists back then that still hold up. All in all just really, really great.
