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!

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.

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.

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!

POWER RANGERS – Erik’s Review!

I honestly wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one, but I have to admit, the all new “Power Rangers” movie is surprisingly good! Is it the best movie of the year? No, not by a long shot, but I never expected to be emotionally invested in the remake of a cheesy 90’s TV show that I haven’t watched since I was a kid.

Back in the day, “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” had a very specific niche, and while the new one is definitely geared towards a younger audience, it also appeals to adults in the same way Marvel and Pixar movies do. It’s kind of like the difference between the new “Star Trek” movies and the original series from the 60’s.


That’s not to say that the new Power Rangers film is without it’s fair amount of cheese, because seriously, I hope you’re not lactose intolerant. Despite the over the top fan service at times, the movie really delivers a (relatively) grounded take on the uh.. “mythos”.

“LOGAN” – Movie Review

“Logan” is the latest installment in the X-Men movie series and (supposedly) Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the Wolverine.

Per usual, Jackman completely delivers as Logan. Patrick Stewart returns as an elderly Professor Xavier in a very different  type of role. And newcomer Dafne Keen steals the show as “Laura” (X-23), a young girl that Logan must protect from a group of anti-mutant mercenaries known as The Reavers.

Logan - international poster (Wolverine and Laura)Although the story is inspired by the Mark Millar’s “Old Man Logan”, this movie takes the dark and disturbing tone of that tale, and goes in a completely different direction with it. Whereas “The Wolverine” felt like a samurai movie, “Logan” is a post-apocalyptic western.

Director James Mangold (“The Wolverine”) returns – this time however, with the R rating, he’s finally able to show a gritty and unleashed Wolverine going berserk on some faceless goons. As much as I love the last one (“The Wolverine” – the one where he’s in Japan, not to be confused with “X-Men: Origins”) this movie proves that Wolverine movies should’ve been rated R from the get go.

It’s really good, but it does leave you with some questions…
