“If I’m honest, I have to tell you, I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all.”
I’m the man who can.
With Wonder Woman, the superhero movie genre gets a nice shot in the arm. This isn’t a superhero film about vengeance or redemption, anger or finding yourself. This is a superhero film about spreading love and helping those who need it and it’s the superhero film that I think a lot of us need right now. The message that Director Patty Jenkins gets through, that love conquers all, love is all we need, is powerful…
I have a real fear of the water; I genuinely think it’s the most terrifying place on this planet. Just thinking about the depths of the ocean freaks me out. I’m also quite claustrophobic. This movie should work for me on multiple levels (hello it also stars my favorite actor Kristen Stewart) but it just doesn’t. It’s a snooze fest.
(They really had Kong up in the Hunger Games)
Thought it was interesting that this is essentially a King Kong movie featuring Godzilla
The big battle scenes are what everyone’s here for and they more or less live up to the hype even if some of the CGI isn’t all that great
The acting in this one is also much better, but that’s what happens when you hire a professional like Rebecca Hall. The performance by Kaylee Hottle might be my favorite from any of these Kong/Godzilla movies
It’s another dumb movie but some cool things happen
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
There's a scene in Lovesong where Mindy (Jena Malone) is trying on her wedding dress and Sarah (Riley Keough) is standing next her. At one point, Sarah turns to look at the two of them in the mirror where see she's herself standing next to the woman she loves wearing a wedding dress for a wedding that's not theirs; Mindy doesn't even take notice. It's a fleeting moment, but it resonated with me and broke my heart. That moment solidified my love and adoration for this film.
To just compare this movie to the rest of the DCEU isn't enough. Wonder Woman belongs in the same breath with the other greats of the superhero genre. Funny, visually stunning, and awe-inspiring, Patty Jenkins delivered something truly special and I thank her for it. The No Man's Land scene is one of the best scenes in CBM history; Patty Jenkins, take a bow.
The entire cast was fantastic - I loved Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison, I wish she…
