The WORST: Wonder Woman
It was FAR worse than what I imagined it was going to be. It might not seem like it when you are watching it--rather like Pirates 5--but trust me, they really loaded this with propaganda. And here's the thing: it would have been even worse if Zach Snyder (Man Of Steel, 300) hadn't been the one who came up with the story-outline and then others just filled-in dialogue and action. So many little things like Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) wearing a medal, and the baby made out of clay and the white people dying and only minorities being left alive (like in The Magnificent Seven),... it's getting so bad. I'm working on it and will get it up asap. This is what is making a film like The Mummy even more important, because it looks like (apart from King Arthur: Legend Of the Sword, John Wick Chapter 2) it's still one of only a couple of films to really make a stand against the continued march of socialism.
