WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT WONDER WOMAN

The opening scene introduces the island of fierce Amazons magically protected from men and the outside world. They’re supposedly dedicated to their own peaceful, loving society, but are incessantly and violently training to fight. (It’s the 1940’s – couldn’t they find a more scientific way to defend themselves?) The ridiculously sexy metal and leather costumes seemed over the top until one remembers that male superheroes are equally sexualized. Everyone on the Amazon island was cleverly trained to speak with the same light Israeli accent that gorgeous star Gal Gadot has. We LOVED the way Wonder Woman frequently questioned the morals and intelligence of war-mongering men she encountered when she left the island. And we LOVED her first shopping experience. But the relentless and numbingly monotonous fight scenes just kept interrupting. If an hour of explosive violence were cut out, it would be a better movie.

LYNDA CARTER: TAKE A CHANCE ON WONDER WOMAN

126982PCN_Carter10cut

The one and only Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, has a new business venture. She unveiled Bally’s new “Wonder Woman” slot machines at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. She also autographed photos of herself as “Wonder Woman” for fans. The slot machines are based on her TV character and we presume she gets a healthy cut of the profits. Lynda, 63, still performs as a singer occasionally.

KRIS JENNER IS PROUD TO CALL HERSELF WONDER WOMAN

#krisjenner #janetcharlton

The award for the first really bad costume of the Halloween season goes to – Kris Jenner. She tweeted this photo of herself done up in a “mom” version of Wonder Woman. The tacky costume looks like it came from a discount store – it has baggy shorts and long sleeves. Lynda Carter has nothing to worry about.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
