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.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
