REVIEW: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Contains Spoilers.  Contains curse words.  Contains me talking about love is love. 

I am not telling the whole setup of the movie, but will discuss certain scenes.

The movie started and five minutes in I was in love with Elizabeth Marston, played by Rebecca Hall. She is a feminist. She is out of this world smart and unfortunately living in a time that women should “know their place.” She was having none of that. We are introduced to her via her rant about not being accepted to Harvard because, “I don’t have a cock.” Her rant is filled with “fuck” and “unacceptable” and “if I were a man.” Of course the name of the movie starts with “Professor Marston” and he, played by Luke Evans, is the person Elizabeth is ranting to. He too is a feminist and loves her because she is all of the things a typical woman of the times is not.

Review: Wonder Woman

After years of waiting and many attempts Wonder Woman has finally gotten a big budget movie. After an appearance in the massively lackluster Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice last year, WB/DC finally got itself a hit with a good film. Only took four tries. But hey maybe “fourth time’s a charm” is the new three. What could have been another disappointing disaster ends up being one great comic book movie. From start to finish this is the movie fans have been waiting for.

Review – DC Rebirth Holiday Special

If you need a break from all the gloom and bad feelings going around lately, the Rebirth Holiday Special is the way to do it. I liked some of the stories more than others, but I enjoyed all of them, and while some of them tended to beat you over the head with tidings of comfort and joy, they mostly did it with nudges and winks.

Review – Wonder Woman: The True Amazon

I’ll admit, my opinion is pretty divided regarding this book, and I have a feeling that’s going to be the opinion of a lot of readers. It’s not just the direction of the story that gives me mixed feelings, but the art too (and seeing as how much I adore Jill Thompson’s art, that’s a bold statement.) See below for a spoiler-free review of Wonder Woman: The True Amazon.

Review – Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1

I remember believing that “wonder” meant “awe.” That the name they gave me spoke of admiration. Perhaps it did, once.
But the story keeps changing.

I’ve been curious about Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 ever since it was announced: Diana has had a tough time reaching the same status as the rest of the DC Trinity, and I’m wondering if Rebirth is where she’ll finally hit her stride. (Warning, spoilers below.)
