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.

Ratchet & Clack Review



Everyone’s favorite game jumps from PlayStation to the big screen with Ratchet & Clank: The Movie, now playing in theaters.

Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy lombax who grew up without a family. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. After stumbling upon a weapon that can destroy entire planets, they join forces with a team of do-gooders known as the Galactic Rangers. Together, they must stop the evil alien Chairman Drek from utilizing this dangerous technology. Along the way, Ratchet and Clank learn valuable lessons about heroism, friendship and discovering one's own identity.

Ratchet & Clack is faced-paced, with a action heavy origin story that honors the last 14 years of the games's franchise. And has the kid-friendly balance up on the big screen. The film delivers enough sci-fi color and swoop-swishing atmosphere of the series that will make the kid inside you grinning.

And there is still the same thump-and-tumble slapstick cartoon violence that game has, which will leave parents pleased with. Plus, the "dream big and do the right thing" message will hopefully leave kids feeling inspired and certainly will have the parents nodding pleasantly.
