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 Fate of the Furious Review



Just when you thought the Fast & Furious series couldn’t get any better, it does! This statement is proven true in the series’ spectacular 8th film, The Fate of the Furious, now playing in theaters.
It’s a heart-pounding car chase movie. When Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is approached by a mysterious, dreadlocked blonde known as Cipher (Charlize Theron) with some mysterious information, Toretto quickly betrays his family and follows Cipher as she plans to wreak havoc across the world. The mysterious piece of information is a delightful link into the series’ past.
With Toretto’s betrayal, the plot switches to Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) as the team’s new leader and teams up with Kurt Russel’s Mr. Nobody to take down Cipher and discover the reason behind Dom’s betrayal.
Jason Statham returns Deckard Shaw, the last film’s villain, and is joined by Scott Eastwood, a by-the-books agent who doesn’t quite get along with the team. Statham is at his best as he mocks his own tough guy persona, and his reluctance to working with the team makes for some great scenes, especially his banter with Johnson. Eastwood gives the franchise a fresh, and quite honestly, uncool dude who the team, and the audience, can have fun mocking.
