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 Shallows Review



This is not just another day at the beach and you should fear “The Shallows” now playing in theaters.

Young surfer Nancy (Blake Lively) travels to a secluded beach in search of a secret spot that her mother had discovered years earlier. While paddling out into the waves, she is hunted by a great white shark and stranded on an embankment away from the shoreline. Alone and wounded, she attempts to survive the attack and get ashore in this thriller directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.

Blake Lively shines in her role as Nancy, a surfer who is unfortunate enough to come face to face with a shark. Lively’s performance will leave you breathless and terrified and you probably won’t want to go the beach after watching this film. She brings all the fun, fear, and heart-pounding intensity that goes into making a thriller shark movie. This film is by far the best shark thriller since “Jaws”. The effects that went into creating each shark attack and her little island in the middle of the ocean that she gets stranded on is pure genius. And this film proves that you don’t need music to pump up the audience before the shark attacks.
