Watched both the new Pirates movie and Wonder Woman this past weekend.

I enjoyed both. But not without a lot of eye-rolling. Especially with how they had a few of the Amazons walking like they were swole. xD

Lots of fun.

I saw both this weekend too.  I don't know which one I liked better.  Which one did you think was better in regards to just overall enjoyment?

I didn't know Pirates hit the mainstream. Colour me surprised.

@ donovan: Saw Get Out a while back, too. Via more unseemly ways. Without spoiling the film for others, gonna have to say I didn't like it because I thought the whole premise, like time traveling, is stupid. Plus, other films have done it better.

For me it was Pirates. Because a big part of films like these for me is the antagonist, and, I'm sorry, Ares is super-duper lame. Captain Salazar beats him hands-down. Also, I thought Wonder Woman's character was a little bland. They relied too much on the actress' good looks.

Pirates definitely had more eye-rolling worthy scenes, though. But all in good fun.

I really liked both as well. They were just good entertainment. But you're right, there were a few "Uh, ok" moments.

DOES NOT COMPUTE.

I mostly just liked that they cast one of my favorite basketball players in the lead role.

But I know what you mean about other films doing the premise better.

Gal Godot got that role on her MERITS!!! >:(

Little known fact privy only to those who scour the inner reaches of IMDb: the role was originally written for Ryan Reynolds.

I think I liked Pirates better too.  There were one or two memorable moments in Wonderwoman but I liked how Pirates captured the feeling of adventure.  I didn't know where they would end up next or what they would face and when I saw what they encountered it was amazing.  Adventure rocks. 

If anyone goes to see Pirates by the way there is a post credits scene.
