I need a nickname for my readers. Night Owls? Anyway, readers! I saw Wonder Woman last night and I am still excited. I am so excited!!!! This movie. Oh my gods, this movie. Patty Jenkins needs to direct more DCU. I’m totally useless at movie reviews. In short, the movie is everything I wanted for a superhero movie, the director, the cinematographer, amazingly, even the writers created a developed, engaging movie that builds the mythos and created a set of compelling characters and distilled the comic version of Diana into a fantastic movie.
And trust me I kind of want to glare at Snyder, but perhaps Heinberg and Fuchs kept him on task — or more likely, Snyder can write a compelling narrative, but it takes another director to helm the project so it doesn’t go off the rails.
Would I watch this again? Hells yes. I would have watched it twice last night if I could have. I’m going to see this at least once more in the theatre before it leaves, if not twice. I now want a five season series with HBO production values for Diana. Just, give me all of it.
If you’re on the fence at all go watch this movie, trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
