Very interesting data unveiled by the #WallStreetJournal, provided by @AntennaData.
To this day, ##WonderWoman1984, #Hamilton & #Greyhound still hold the records of spikes in daily new subscriptions for #HBOMax, #DisneyPlus & #AppleTVPlus, respectively.
But the data provided by #Antenna to the #WSJ also revealed an inconvenient truth: The Phantom menace of Churn is real. Almost 50% or more of the original subscribers of movies like #WW84 and #Hamilton are gone after 6 months in a streaming service.
The data provided by #Antenna also show how big series such as #Netflix #BigMouth or #Hulu’s #HandmaidsTale although not attracting as many subscriptions as big films, do a slightly better job in retaining most of subscribers attracted during weekend of release for longer.

#spoilers for #wandavision and #ww84 follow...
Watched the WV season finale and WW84 yesterday. There were more similarities between the two than not, especially with both protagonists reanimating their lovers after their respective tragic deaths. #spoilers 1/
WV is the far better of the two, imo. The writing and acting were superb, and while WV started slow as a series, it eventually pulled me in. The chemistry between Olsen and Bettany is fantastic, and I hope to see it again. #spoilers 2/

"I'm a big fan of Myth, and the power of the Myth, and i think in a lot of ways that's let me go to this genre in particular, because i think in a lot of ways comic books is a modern myth, is our way to figuring out the world we living in" [+]

Sat down tonight to see if the harsh criticism of #WW84 is deserved. If anything, its detractors are too kind. I loved the original #WonderWoman, love #GalGadot, felt the love story angle, appreciated the direction of #PattyJenkins. But my Lord, this sequel is garbage. Thread:
First and foremost, the concept and writing are a disaster. A talented cast is brought to its knees by the plodding, contrived dialogue and juvenile plot. The blame here lies with director Jenkins, who wrote this monstrosity, and may have killed the film franchise. #WW84
#GalGadot remains a compelling star, but she and poor #ChrisPine have to wade through a hideous script that allows them none of the chemistry that drove the original. The wonderful #PedroPascal of #Mandalorian fame is reduced to comic villainous excess. #WW84

So there is an element of #WW84 I wanna talk about but I don't wanna spoil so here's your warning, below is minor spoiler:
Steve Trevor's essence is placed in another man & Diana sleeps w/ man as his body is possessed w/ Trevor's consciousness. Da hell?
Diana/Wonder Woman has been obsessing over a man for decades she only knew for a week (woman empowerment) & when Steve visits her in another man's body, she sleeps with him within hours. We see man back to normal consciousness @ end of film o& he's not interested in Diana.
Wonder Woman used this man's body, who at end of film was very kind and respectful to her while also clueless of the fact that the stranger (Diana) he has just met has actually been using his body for the past 24 hours. Did no one think of how horrible this is??????? Da hell?

1. Okay, my take on #WW84 @ThabitiAnyabwil. I think movie had a deep & even profound message (unlike any Marvel movie) and the message and theme of the film was excellent. In execution, could've been done better, especially edited better. The beginning & ending good, middle meh.
2. The prob is, it's a long mediocre middle. The script needed to be tightened up in many diff ways, & I'd even say they would've done much better if they stuck to comic book source material for Cheetah. The DCEU would abound if it stuck to source material; which is excellent.
3. Okay, now for some mild spoilers.... Not major, just thematic.

The theme WW84 deals with, the cost of greed & the longing for another life due to pain or loss in present one hit me extremely hard. For those who have endured trauma or profound pain; I think it resonates.

Is this #HBOMax #WW84 film grain a compression artifact or was this intentional? The film is glorious but the grain is overwhelmingly distracting.
I’ve been looking closely at this and here’s what I thing. #ww84 added a film grain to get that 80s look, but expected the film to be on a big screen at a FAR FAR higher bitate. Whatever codec that #HBOMax is using is emphasizing the grain to the point of distraction.
Moving off the Xbox #hbomax app to a chromecast ultra to see if 4k helps #ww84’s film grain

One of the best things about @WonderWomanFilm: #Ramy’s Dad Farouk! 😄 #WhatTheFamsWatching
Quote from my husband midway: “I wish this movie was good.” 🤣 (you only get it if you’ve seen it). I happen not to mind the film, but then I’m not normally a superhero movie kind of girl.
Now he says “ I wish this movie would end.”

The wish making powers are not transmitting through the TV, however. 🤣🙁

I wrote a whole-ass thread over on my personal account about why it was such a missed opportunity, but man it just sucked from top to bottom
I can suspend disbelief for an invisible jet and a cheetah lady and a magic crystal that grants everyone's wishes, but expecting me to believe Gal Gadot would save a Muslim child? 🤨

HBOMax needs to upgrade their CDN
We're an hour into #WW84 and we've buffered three times, all three times the picture has degraded from 4k to SD.

We have a gigabit connection from Xfinity, and have never once buffered during playback from Netflix
This is on a Vizio TV with a hardwired network connection to the router.

I get what some critics (& friends) are saying about #WW84 - but I loved it. The first one had more iconic moments/rewatchable action but this was a solid follow-up that captures the same humanity and hope with a better set of villains. It’s clear @PattyJenks gets this character.
Compared to the first action-focused film, it’s further down the line toward drama as well as Snyder-verse unpacking of superheroism. General audiences might not embrace it the way they did the first one but I think it’s a better movie for sticking to Jenkins’ vision.
If you don’t think Jenkins gets the character, just remember that Diana “won” in WW with her fists and powers (because WB wanted a big actiony ending) and she “wins” in #WW84 with love, compassion, and reason.
