‘Wonder Woman’ Review: DC made a good movie and I am SO HAPPY

It’s been a long four years since Man of Steel premiered and started the new DCEU shared universe. It has been a universe of muted colours and asshole heroes, and one that has been hard to be optimistic about future entries in, but I am happy to report that Wonder Woman is a great movie and that you should definitely see it.

Warner Brothers’ 2020 Vision – Harry Potter & LEGO Trilogies and a Justice League Ten Pack

warner_bros

Warner Bros. had a lot to say at their Time Warner investors meeting today, and most of it was “YOU WANT MOVIES? I’LL SHOW YOU MOVIES!”  CEO Kevin Tsujihara gave us a timeline of what Warner Bros. will be working on over the next 6 years.  Buckle up (and maybe submit a resume), because it’s one hell of a breakneck pace they’re working with.  One that’s not going to leave much room for error, and I would assume means we won’t be seeing Ben Affleck direct movies for a little while.  And that isn’t the only thing we won’t be seeing.

Fast & Furious Badass Cast As Wonder Woman

WW2Warner Bros have just announced that Israeli actress Gal Gadot will be donning Wonder Woman’s famous outfit for the sequel to Man Of Steel, currently known as Batman vs Superman. You may remember her from kicking all kinds of ass in the most recent Fast & Furious movies, so she’s definitely got the moves to match the jawline.

From director Zack Snyder in Variety:

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

 

Some might say that she hasn’t got the stocky figure that Diana is known for, but remember that Michael Keaton was physically no Batman yet he turned out to be one of the best. It’s also reassuring that Warner have gone for an actress who has proven she can both act and fight. For me, this is the first real positive piece of news to come out of the production, so I can’t wait to see her cleaving her way through another movie.

Review: Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6

The tagline for Fast and Furious 6 us “All Roads Lead To This” and it’s actually pretty apt. I’m a fan of the series because I like watching fast cars but this is probably the first film where everything went right. In fact Furious 6 (as it’s called by it’s own title card) is likely the best film in the series.

Yeah, I’m saying that after 6 tries (or five, depending how you count) they’ve finally gotten the formula right and the movie is entertaining as hell from start to finish.

This isn’t to say the movie is objectively good by any stretch but a movie doesn’t need to necessarily be objectively good to be solidly entertaining.
