    This film has an absolutely bonkers premise. While not all of it works, it feels anything but safe. I appreciate James Wan's attempt to create a something unique within the horror genre.

  • Cinderella


    I’m giving this a single star for the one scene that Billy Porter has. He was a fabulous fairy godmother, and his scene was the only watchable part of this entire mess. Camila can’t act, the decision to feature contemporary songs was cringe, the overall look/art direction was cheap, etc. 

    What a mess.

    "Wonder Woman" is not only the best DCEU film so far, it's a fantastic film on its own merits. It hardens back to classic action adventure films.

    Does it drag in spots? Sure. Is the third act a bit too bombastic? Sure.

    However, these are small criticisms in a movie that's largely fantastic. The movie is layered with the harsh truths of this world but also a lovely veil of compassion and love.

    Patty and Gal, thank you for this.
