Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984

  As superhero sequels go, Wonder Woman 1984 is pretty epic, but it’s not without its flaws. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) lives quietly among mortals in the vibrant, sleek 1980s ‑‑ an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. Though she's come into her full powers, she maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom, and courage as she finds herself squaring off against Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the Cheetah (Kristen Wigg), a villainess who possesses superhuman strength and agility. Now, I’m not the only one who has been waiting for this movie. I loved the first Wonder Woman film, not just because Gal Gadot was breathtaking in the title role but by its brilliant execution (which the DCEU was clearly lacking) and that was enough to get me excited for the sequel. And now that I’ve finally gotten to watch it, thanks to HBO Max, I’m so happy. With a runtime of

Disney’s Newest Flick Is a Stampede Success


Disney once again proves that they are an unstoppable force with their newest animated movie “Zootopia” now playing in theaters. Directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, “Zootopia” centers around a city inhabited by anthropomorphic animals who have abandoned traditional predator/prey roles in favor of civilized coexistence, uptight rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) is forced to work with charismatic fox con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to crack a major case involving the mysterious disappearance of some carnivorous citizens. But when a few of the missing critters reappear, having reverted to pre-enlightenment savagery, it exposes existing anti-carnivore prejudice among the city's herbivores that threatens to damage the fabric of their diverse metropolis. Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia L. Spencer, Bonnie Hunt, Alan Tudyk, Don Lake, and John DiMaggio also lend their voices. Goodwin was great in the lead role of optimistic bunny officer Judy Hopps, showcasing her love for the Disney Company and her job as an actress. She played her character with so much passion and excitement that you would think a kid was voicing the character. Jason Bateman was perfect for the role as sly fox con artist Nick Wilde, and watching his character pair up with Judy Hopps was just perfect as he tries to con her, but she is too smart for him. The rest of the cast was excellent as well. The animation on this film was just amazing bring a city and many of its residents to life with their own little section of the city that is made specifically for them. Nothing quite beats a good Disney flick. You can watch Ginnifer Goodwin on “Once Upon a Time” as Disney princess Snow White with a twist Sundays on ABC.
