Patty Jenkins brushes aside the criticism of Wonder Woman 1984's body snatch storyline



In case you are not caught up or haven't watch Wonder Woman 1984 yet, [spoilers]in the movie Diana's first love Steve Trevor, who died some 70 years ago, returns in the body of some other guy (played by Kristoffer Polaha) when Diana wishes for him to return on the "Dreamstone", a wish granting gem. The film acknowledges that Steve has only returned in spirit and this is the other guys body, but for the rest of the movie we see Steve's face not Kristoffer Polaha, because that's how Diana sees him. We get no explanation why this random guy was picked for Steve's spirit to inhabit nor do we find out his name (he is referred to as "Handsome Man" in thje credits), but we are shown that "Handsome Man" was still alive and had a life of his own. A little later in the movie Diana has sex with "Steve" while it's still the Handsome Man's body (which many people online have called rape).

In the 3rd act of the movie, Diana renounces her wish and Steve disappears. In the final scene of the movie, Handsome Man returns and Diana flirts with him.


On Twitter, some random with 170 followers tried to defend what was basically Diana raping "Handsome Man" by saying Patty Jenkins was (1) "playing with the trope" in some 80s movies that basically treated what was rape as a joke. And (2) when Diana renounced her wish and made Steve disappear, Handsome Man got unfucked.

Patty Jenkins quote tweeted (see below) this random guy and replied with "Hahaha. Exactly".

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge – January



Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

ONTD, what do you plan on watching this month? What did you watch during the month of December?

Kelly Clarkson & Kaley Cuoco Swap Blackout Stories

While promoting her HBO Max series The Flight Attendant on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Kaley Cuoco swapped hilarious blackout stories with the Emmy award-winning talk show host. Luckily, no one was found murdered in a hotel room as a result. Check out their stories in the clip below.



-Kaley talks about blacking out after drinking sake after a horse show and waking up the next day in her full riding outfit on the couch.

-Kelly recalls the aftermath from a trip to the dentist which resulted in multiple jewelry purchases she didn't remember making and going to rehearsal with her band and apparently not recognizing them playing her own music ("That ain't my song" ).

-They also discuss tattoos and Kaley admits she has a tramp stamp, which apparently is coming back in style.

Any fun blackout stories, ONTD? I went on a cruise with friends last year and apparently got so drunk one night I was quoting Real Housewives franchises and trying to start fake drama with them. My go-to line was apparently, "I know what you're doing...do not do this to me!" every time they would try to talk to me.

The best (100% Rotten Tomatoes Show) Cobra Kai is here to Kick the competition and Kick off 2021.



ONTD did you watch Season 3? It's been 84 years.

Kpop Post: The BEST 30 Kpop songs of 2020

EDITED: List has been updated!
(According to the OP)
The new year is finally here, so its time for the annual 25 30 best Kpop songs of the year, here are the rules:
One title song per group (needs to have an official MV)
One song per group (Including sub-units, solo releases...to have more variety)
Sooo this means for example: if Kai was to be here, Exo or Super M could not be part of the list,BUT Super M could be here with NCT (even though they share Taeyong, because they are two different groups), with that said, sorry if anyone gets offended or butt hurt (Disclaimer I'm a girl group stan)
Here's the list from
2018
2019
With that said.. LET'S START!

30. VeriVery- Lay back
Boy group VeriVery kicked 2020 with their release "Lay back", the track has sleek choreography and smooth vocals.The MV is simple but it highlights the group's choreography nicely


29. woo!ahh! - Bad Girl
Rookie girl group woo!ahh! deliver one of the corkiest songs on this list. The electro beat mixes cheerleader-esque chants with a break that doesn't match the rest of the song but somehow it works pretty well. Also that MV? There's cats, a giant mouse, guns and a bunch of flashy images...fun!

Collapse )

I spent a lot of time on this post guys,
and i know there's going to be some people that are going to be mad, so, I'm sorry.
You guys are free to post your favorite releases of 2020,
and I hope you guys have a fantastic new year :)

ONTD Original: Revisiting the bts drama of Batman Forever



-Batman Forever was the 3rd "modern" Batman film that came out in 1995, following Batman Returns. It would go on to star Val Kilmer as Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Robin, Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, Jim Carey as The Riddler, Nicole Kidman as Chase Meridian, Drew Barrymore as Sugar, and Debi Mazar as Spice. Joel Schumacher would direct and thus the first gay director to direct a superhero film.

-Tim Burton and Michael Keaton were originally due to return but after Batman Returns made less than Batman WB chose to get rid of Burton as they blamed the darker take on Batman as the reason why the film didnt succeed its predecessor. With a decision to take the franchise in a more "family friendly" route, Keaton ended up dropping out.

-With Keaton/Burton leaving the film it caused a domino effect of further casting changes. Rene Russo was originally set to play love interest Chase Meridian but once Val Kilmer was cast she was deemed to old and thus the role went to Nicole Kidman. Russo was 5 years older than Kilmer while Kidman is 8 years younger than Kilmer. Marlon Wayans was attached to play Dick Grayson/Robin but was let go in favor of Chris O'Donnell.

-Once filming begun they ran into multiple issues with Val Kilmer and Tommy Lee Jones. Schumacher called Kilmer "psychotic" and TLJ a troublemaker.

-Val Kilmer clashed with Schumacher to the point of refusing to speak to him for a solid 2 weeks during filming and allegedly ripping off his Batman cowl out of frustration. He allegedly went off on cameramen and first AD, costuming department, and created a hostile work environment whenever he was on set.

-Tommy Lee Jones was allegedly jealous of Jim Carey stealing scenes from him when they would film together and was thus very rude and unprofessional whenever they were around one another. Things escalated to the point where Jim Carey was approached by TLJ who stated " hate you. I really don't like you... I cannot sanction your buffoonery"

-After Batman Forever came out, it was deemed a success as it went on to make more than Batman Returns but Val Kilmer allegedly refused to return for the sequel as he felt anyone could play Batman and was not happy that Warren Buffets children appeared to be more impressed with The Batmobile than him when they visited set.
