Wonder Woman 1984

Exactly, Krawlie. EXACTLY. More Blue Monday. It was great to not have a WHAM or Duran Duran song and instead we get Blue Monday. Wonder Woman was the best of the new version of the DCU that was offered. I just rewatched the Justice League and Batman vs Superman. Not so good.

Remember when nostalgia in pop culture was always looking at 25 years(ish) back? Since we hit the 80s nostalgia wave in the early 2000s it just stuck. Next month the 80s are 40 years go. That breaks my brain.
But I also think nostalgia is ever-present now.
Oh, also, I will see this movie. I still haven't even seen Justice League.

I liked parts of the first one, but usual third act problems etc.
My biggest anxiety about this one is them recreating a caricature of the 80s instead of something accurate.
Similar to some complaints about Stranger Things. Any film set in the past can work if the filmmakers understand that a trip down memory lane (e.g. too many pop culture references and/or hyping the "importance" of things that real people in the 80s could take or leave) may not be appealing to everyone.
Personally, i'm not too concerned about this sequel battering the audience with stuff such as Rubix's Cubes, Michael Jackson, the San Fernando Valley culture, A-ha and Reagan.
