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.

    Hollywood produces much more garbage like this. No wonder nobody attends the cinema anymore .

    It was great, but it’s WW1 so more like 1917. Loved the little girl who played Diana as a kid.

    This sounds like an absolutely (must not) see!

    And of course the cast-wide “light [occupied-Palestine] accents” would be a bonus.

    Geez, Janet. It’s a comic book hero. Stop over thinking the character by using your illogical leftist ideology

    Actually, the move takes place in 1918, not in the 40’s as the original comic book & the 70’s TV show. The war that is the setting is WW1, not WW2. As for the island, the isolation of the Amazons is what makes one of the more endearing parts of the film, the fish-out-of-water element, work.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
