WONDER WOMAN! – Review

WONDER WOMAN - movie banner

“Wonder Woman” is the newest installment in DC’s cinematic universe, following: “Man of Steel”, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” and is the character’s first solo live action film. While many of DC’s recent films have been um.. divisive to say the least, it seems as though director Patty Jenkins has finally cracked the code, because Wonder Woman is awesome!

Wonder Woman isn’t just a solid action movie, it has heart. Sure there’s moments of darkness, but it’s interspersed with just the right amount of humor. Even as a fan of the previous films, I also could see why not everyone was connecting with them quite like Marvel’s recent outings. Man of Steel was dark, BvS was confusing (seriously though, that director’s cut was a big improvement) and Suicide Squad.. well Suicide Squad made some odd choices… Wonder Woman on the other hand is both a great movie and everything a comic fan could hope for!

Best of… WONDER WOMAN! (comics)

Wonder Woman poster trio

Wonder Woman hits theaters this weekend, but if you need more Amazon action in your life, here are some of the best comics she has to offer!

WONDER WOMAN (New 52 #’s 0-35) by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang

Wonder Woman Issue 0 Azzarello

Considered by many fans to be one of the best Wonder Woman comics of all time! Azzarello and Chiang’s entire run from beginning to end is a masterpiece. Diana is revealed to be the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, as she faces off against the entire pantheon of Greek gods: Hera, Poseidon, Hades, Apollo, Artemis, Strife, and of course Ares…

WONDER WOMAN: Year One (Vol 2: DC Rebirth) by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott

Wonder Woman Vol 2 Year One

In this modern retelling of Wonder Woman’s origins, Greg Rucka pits Diana and Steve Trevor against terrorists and the god of war himself! It’s a fish out of water story that’s both funny and emotional.

TRINITY by Francis Manapul and Clay Mann

DC Rebirth Trinity #4

Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman find themselves trapped by Poison Ivy in a mutual dream as the Black Mercy preys on their deepest desires and darkest fears…

POWER RANGERS – Dani’s Review!

I went into Power Rangers not expecting very much.

I’d pretty much written it off in my mind, and had decided that if it gave me a nice nostalgia bomb I was going to be happy with it. After all, any chance to harken back to the days of old where I would run around my back yard wielding palm fronds battling Lord Zed should be taken. This was a terrible mistake, I admit it, I was wrong.

Power Rangers was great.

Power Rangers - Dino-Zord poster

It managed to blend humor and action in ways that made me laugh even as I leaned forward, literally on the edge of my reclining movie chair. The acting was off the chain, and there was genuine character development- in a POWER RANGERS movie!
