    Electra Woman & Dyna Girl!

    Here's your answer to superhero fatigue, bitches! Not to mention, a reboot done right!



    I will watch, and enjoy.

    Im not sure what to make of this film. Not sure if super hero movie that's just trying to keep it light or if its going for the super hero comedy thing. Either way the trailer was not funny.

    I take it you guys never saw the original? Obviously I'm being sarcastic, and it will be terrible, but come on, am I that old?? I used to watch the original religiously every Saturday morning.

    They were giving me boners before I knew what boners were for.

    yeah. I don't know.
    Looks ok. But, I can't feel the tone.
    Doesn't look funny, or exciting? what are they going for here? Who is the intended audience?

    I don't remember the original at all.

    Yeah it looks like it's trying for that Mystery Men and/or Super(I think? The one with Dwight) tone, but failing. Or maybe it's hitting the tone of Super, but it's just poorly written/executed.

    Either way, it looks un-funny ^ 10

    I think this was a part of the "Kroft Super Stars" maybe. It used to play in the same lineup as "Dr. Shrinker" and the "Space Nuts", or not. That was a long time ago...

    For some reason it strikes me as something aimed at hipster women/SJWs. Like the one frame where it says they're "...crushing it!" Well, shit, can I get some grrrrl power up in here? And then all of the stale male superhero stereotypes not wanting or being able to 'save the city', but never fear - our two empowered women are on the case!

    The whole thing just feels so fucking...forced. It's probably just shitty writing. Maybe they are aiming for some sort of buddy-cop movie with a superhero twist? I dunno, whole thing just seems strange to me.

    Negasonic T.W. was probably a better written character than both of those two combined. This is also why I don't have any hope of ever seeing a She-Hulk movie worth a damn. The writers would probably spend all their time worrying about making her a role model instead of writing anything remotely compelling.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't intended to be any sort of poignant commentary on genders or society or much of anything except how ridiculous (and amusing) the old show was. The two chicks don't seem to be taking it too seriously themselves, and they even have the whole "I'm not a sidekick" thing which is probably about as much conflict as the entire movie contains.

    I just linked it because I thought it was hilariously bad, but in a fond nostalgic kind of way. I was in love with the original Dyna Girl for the longest time (probably a matter of months, but it seemed like forever at that age). Unfortunately this Dyna Girl isn't as cute to me.

    It is going to be cheesy and bad, and a waste of almost anyone's time to watch, which was sort of my point. But yes, I will watch it anyway, just like I'd watch a new version of Isis from the Shazam/Isis Power Hour! This is the shit I grew up with, and actually got out of bed on a Saturday morning to watch.

    Wasn't there some dude that did amateur versions of these heroes for years? Only name recognition I have for the heroes otherwise.

    Watched this last night. Not great, but not as bad as I expected. I laughed a few times, and was even surprised at where they went with a few things (most of it is pretty cliche though). I'm not going to throw out a recommendation to see it, or try to say it was better than BvS or Apocalypse, but I think if you're easily amused like me and go in with low expectations it might pass the time. I'm not sorry that I watched it.

    Did it get better after the first 20 minutes? Only reason I even I kept watching was the odd gore in the beginning but it immediately went back terrible acting and a story that seemed predictable

    Well no, not really. That's pretty much what you're going to get through the entire thing, so if it didn't do it for you there's not much reason to push through. I watched for nostalgia and was ok with it, but if you don't have any compelling reason to watch it isn't really going to change much.

    Never heard of these girls, but the trailer looks good. I'm expecting mystery men or superbad type of movie. Did it make it into theaters?

    Mystery Men was such a great movie. That trailer didn't give me that vibe at all but if RR tells me that's what it's like I'll watch it.

    Don't let me down bros.

    I didn't necessarily get the idea that was as good as mystery men, just seemed like they were going for that. Or Kick-Ass (sorry, called this superbad in the last post), or The Incredibles, or maybe even My Super Ex Girlfriend. In other words, a comedy set in a world with lots of heroes who have more flaws than positives and mostly deal with piddly shit. Unclear if any of them have any actual powers from the trailer (other than the villain). No one (other than the spleen) had actual powers in MM or KA either.

    If there's even 1 gag in this movie as good as the invisible boy who is only invisible when no one is looking, it'll be a winner in my book.

    It isn't as good as Mystery Men, so don't go into it thinking that. From what you're saying, I think Hoss will be fine to watch it, but seriously, no one should be expecting much of anything from this movie. There are a few surprising moments, and some laughs, but it isn't really "good". I just happened to see it was being released soon and had enough nostalgia to moderately enjoy it.

    EDIT: No, it was never released in theaters, direct to video is all.

    Bowling ball chick had powers, she was legit. Also, I don't care what anyone says, Mr. Furious was excellent
