Wonder Woman: DC Finally Makes a Decent Superhero Movie [Review]

Wonder Woman: DC Finally Makes a Decent Superhero Movie [Review]

I was never a fan of Wonder Woman, but not for the usual reasons. I’m actually not even clear on what ‘the usual reasons’ would be – I just wanted to watch Superman roam around in tights instead of some woman.  Apparently a lot of ostensibly straight men weren’t too keen on Wonder Woman either?  I went into the film with that question knowing nothing about Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman: The Most Triumphant, Crowd-Pleasing Superhero Movie Since ‘The Avengers’ (Review)

Wonder Woman: The Most Triumphant, Crowd-Pleasing Superhero Movie Since ‘The Avengers’ (Review)

In one scene plastered all over the marketing for Wonder Woman, we see the female heroine step onto the battlefield, alone, to try and take out the German forces. This action-packed scene and what follows immediately after it combine to deliver not only one of the best action sequences in a superhero movie of all-time, but it is also a testament to just how crowd-pleasing the movie is as a whole. Wonder Woman is a bold, confident movie with as much heart as it has soul. Wonder Woman is not only a groundbreaking achievement, but also a movie that inspires much-needed hope in dark times like this. And given how crazy things are around the world, Wonder Woman is exactly the type of hero we need right now.

Hell or High Water: Summer’s Best Movie is Finally Here [Review]

Hell or High Water: Summer’s Best Movie is Finally Here [Review]

The recurring theme in two of the previous four movie reviews I’ve reviewed here is that, yes, summer movies have been a major letdown on all fronts. Superhero movies? Duds. Animated movies? Cash-grabs. Mega-budget sci-fi sequels? Repugnant. Comedies? Crickets. It’s worth mentioning summer for a third time because audiences have not been given that ONE movie that stays with them beyond the weekend they see it in theaters. Luckily, that changes this weekend. Hell or High Water is a near-perfect modern Western, filled with excellent performances and cheeky dialogue that personify the embodiment of the withering away of the genuine American Dream.

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

I think I might be done with Star Trek.  The reboot universe just isn’t doing it for me, despite the beautiful homoerotic undertones of new Kirk’s relationship with new Spock.   If you’re a fan of the series, particularly the new series, you might want read some other review.  Even Rotten Tomatoes liked this film more than I did.   Star Trek Beyond is a hyperactive mess, it tries so hard and  comes so close and then steadfastly fails to deliver.  There were many many good elements, small things done well, even big things done well, but none of it came together as a whole.   There’s gonna be mild spoilers in this review but nothing you can’t get from just watching the trailer.
