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.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War Review


The fairytale continues with Universal Pictures’ follow up to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman with The Huntsman: Winter’s War now playing in theaters. This spin-off of Snow White and the Huntsman acts as both prequel and sequel to the original film, detailing the adventures of Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) as he gets caught up in the rivalry between wicked queens Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and Freya (Emily Blunt). During his quest, Eric is also endangered by his feelings for fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain), since ice queen Freya has decreed that love is forbidden in her kingdom. Chris Hemsworth returns as the Huntsman and delivers a great performance with heart and a kind of charisma that makes you think of his character Thor. Charlize Theron also returns as the Evil Queen Ravenna and is just as deliciously evil and sexy as the last film. The rest of the cast was excellent as well. Emily Blunt takes on the role of Ice Queen, Freya, who is kind of cruel, but you can’t really blame her once you understand her past. Jessica Chastain portrays the Warrior, Sara, and is just as fierce as the Huntsman and we discover that she is the wife that is mentioned in the first film. Hemsworth and Chastain have such great chemistry in this film that I hope we get to see more of their story in future movies. Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan did such an incredible bring this story to life with amazing visual and special effects that will leave you breathless.
