Wonder Woman 2017 review

Wonder Woman, under Patty Jenkins‘ creative control, busts out from the Zack Snyder mold and delivers one hell of a story, from beginning to end. And finally, an origin film that doesn’t bore the living crap out of us. Seeing it in theaters will be worth whatever you spend on it. And this, from a comic fan who never really cared about the character in print, has become a huge convert today after experiencing this film.

Oh, and there ARE NO POST-CREDIT scenes for Wonder Woman that you need to stick around for.

You can leave when the story is over! That’s refreshing. (Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Marvel’s post-credit scenes, but I do hate it when they, or anyone else, forces you to sit through al the credits. That’s a load of crap, and half the time I bolt because I hate waiting.)

DC Comics products on Amazon.

There will be light spoilers for the Wonder Woman film.

The film starts out in the present, goes back to the way past to touch on Diana’s origin, then we settle into the slightly more recent past after she finds Steve Trevor in the waters around her island.

NBC’s POWERLESS Review

February 28, 2017

(Even Tudyk looks suspicious of the TV ratings of Powerless) NBC‘s Powerless is nothing more than a thinly veiled sitcom wrapped within the world of DC‘s land of vigilantes and meta humans. And it’s even failing at doing that. It feels like even the creative team behind the show has no clue how to handle […]

THE BATMAN Movie From Ben Affleck

January 7, 2017

After having the new Batman premiere in Batman V Superman (BvS), I was surprised and found myself enjoying Ben Affleck‘s rendition of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Kudos. I also enjoyed the harsher side of Batman. Affleck has done a good enough job that he’s been tagged by DC/WB to put together the solo Batman film. He’s also […]

Is DC Really Banning Humor From Their Comic Movies?

August 27, 2014

There’s news (or rumor) running around that Warner Bros is frowning on any lighthearted humor in their superhero movies. But to be perfectly honest, this rumor seems to be a mandate getting handed down by DC Comics. And to be honest, if true, it feels like a mistake. Or is it that they realize their […]
