    I guess one of those nitpicks that tends to bug me is that powers are often written to suit the story, instead of the story fitted around the character's powers. WW's bracelets and lasso are two objects that have traditionally been classified as magic proof, but a lot of writers tend to ignore this because that's what the plot calls for. You can't zap her with magic energy blasts, and her lasso has protected her from spells of deception. Maybe that's not enough to save the day in this case, but that's still bringing a lot more to the table than Batman does against a magic based threat. Any defense against magic is better than zero defense!

    I feel like they balanced it enough for Wonder Woman so far. The lasso helped free her from Trigon's Corruptor demon's possession but here she couldn't resist Destiny's influence.

    I still need to watch this a second time. But for the most part, I enjoyed what I saw. I would've liked to have seen Wonder Woman a little more, since I really love this version of her.

    Interview with Ernie Altbacker
    -At one point, Zatanna wasn't in the movie
    -They toyed with using Madame Xanadu
    -Etrigan was the toughest to write for him, he tried to pitch olde English with contemporary in his rhymes but was rejected, Burnett helped him with the rhymes

    Honestly I was pretty bored throughout most of this movie. The animation and action scenes were top notch, but everything else to the story and characters were so boring and bland I felt bored halfway into the movie.

    It's been said the main cast felt so bland, they were right. Zatanna had virtually no personality. Constantine and the Dead guy just made quips all movie. Batman was just there. Etrigan was....Etrigan.

    And man these movies go on way too long. A good 20 minutes could have been trimmed to improve the pacing. Hell I think Swamp Things scenes should have been omitted entirely, he had no real point in the film. The purple lady/woman or whatever the hell that was had no point either.

    Really boring film. Shame because the action scenes and animation were nice eye candy, but everything else about it was dull.
