After a bit of delay, we finally got our Top 10 Favorite Movies for 2017 list put together!Read More
We had some brilliant comic book movies this year, and today we're looking at some of our favorite moments from these movies!Read More
I've been waiting a long time to say these words: The DCEU has a good movie. And the best part is that it's not just good...it's REALLY GOOD!
YES! Am I the only one that wants to do Lynda Carter spins of joy while yelling "the gods are merciful!"...? Anyone? (Ahem).
Wonder Woman is easily the best movie of the DCEU thus far and the best DC movie since The Dark Knight Rises. Director Patty Jenkins, you are indeed a wonder woman! This movie is faithful to its source material (both in terms of story and tone) while being full of action, heart, humor, and mythology. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine are very charming in their roles. Their convincing chemistry and the good character development make you care about Princess Diana and Steve Trevor. Both Patty Jenkins' direction and Gal Gadot's performance instill a sense of bright hope; something that was previously lacking in the DCEU. Wonder Woman is everything I wanted Man of Steel (C+) to be.
My two favorite things about the movie are its big picture symbolism and the second action sequence. The selection of World War I as the movie's setting was inspired. The Great War made the world grapple with a loss of innocence, and in the movie we see how Princess Diana goes on an epic journey of losing her innocence and naivety. That's freakin DEEP (just like Gal Gadot's heavenly eyes...). Also, the No Man's Land action sequence is just so spectacular. It's fresh and thrilling while also marking a turning point in both Diana's development and the story. I'm sure it's going to make many people's list of favorite comic book movie battles.
There are a few aspects that prevent the movie from being great: weak handling of the villains, noticeably poor CGI effects at times, and plot holes surrounding Wonder Woman's hidden powers.
Still, the strengths strongly outweigh the faults and Wonder Woman is a solid hit. A Fresnerd B+ in my opinion.
The opening sequence of Wonder Woman saving a sinking Steve Trevor and bringing him back to safe shores is symbolic of what this movie has done for the DCEU. Yes! Let's hope it's the first of many wins!

Joss Whedon's 2006 Woman Woman script was recently made available online!Read More
Earlier today we got the new trailer for "Wonder Woman". This trailer continues to keep me excited for this movie. This time around we see a young Diana being trained by another of the Amazonians with a hint that she's someone special.
As the trailer continues, we see a little more of the interaction between Gal Gadot's character and Chris Pine's. He has an ominous line about the greater dangers of the world and she takes off to help save the world.
It's starting to look like we'll see a tale of two movies. The earlier part of the movie taking place as Diana is younger and growing on Themyscira, and the second part of the movie taking place seemingly during World War I.
I'm looking forward to this and hoping for some great action. The downside right now is that we've already seen Wonder Woman in "Batman V Superman" so we know that any threat to her life is going to work out well. I can deal with that, but hopefully the film is good enough to keep the suspense up.
And on a last note, they've given her one of the best theme songs I've heard in a while!
