@ccraft: Oh that question was rhetorical.

@ccraft: Yeah this is my biggest pet peeve about movies. Especially when it's unnecessary. Why do they put that in their movie instead of just implying what happened? Unless, it's important of course. Sex can be "natural" sure but a lot of things are natural that I don't want to see. For example, someone going to the bathroom, some guys pe***, etc... I find it so stupid to put stuff like that in their movies just to get people... excited.

@foamborn: I think you misunderstand. Diana knows it's possible that he will come back angry as ever but she hopes he won't. It doesn't matter what he wants; it matters what's best. Also the First Born didn't change or anything in the last second he just wanted to spend his time in the pit with Diana. Why would she do that? With all the vile and disgusting things he's done and said to her. If she helped him up he would continue his plan. Tartarus? Hades is dead. Remember? You want him to own the underworld?

@myadidas: Exactly. I also liked how the movie didn't have needles scenes like a action scene that's not really needed. It ran at it's own pace. The themes and relationships is also one of the best things about that movie. Most people didn't even recognize them. It puts their characters first.

@foamborn:

-Think about it this way. Your a bad guy and immortal and someone has the chance to kill you or put you in jail for 100 years. If they killed you that would mean they found no hope for you and thought you would always be a problem. If they put you in jail then they are giving you a new chance to change your life and to redeem yourself. They have faith for you. That's merciful.

- "Tough Love" is to treat someone harshly to help them in the long run. Diana offered the First Born love and gave it to him just not in the way anyone expected. You still love that person but you treat them harshly because you think that's the only way to get through to them which is sometimes the case and probably is for the First Born too. Sure he could come back angry as ever but sheer has faith that through all that time he will think about what she was trying to teach him. You'd be surprised what people can do with enough time.

@foamborn: Diana threw him down there because he was way too dangerous. He killed to many people destroyed to many things. Also she did show mercy by giving him more time to change his ways instead of killing him. "Tough Love" is to treat someone harshly to help them in the long run and that's exactly what she did.

Because it's ending everything and people have expectations of the ending they want and if you don't meet or surpass those expectations then it's looked down upon. Also as the last movie people have higher expectations.

I wouldn't say they are always bad just more critiqued.
