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.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Review

 


In 2012, it seemed as if the Wimpy Kid film series had seen its last day on the big screen with Dog Days, but as it turns out, that wasn’t the case. Now, the Heffley family makes their triumphant return to the big screen with a whole new cast that brings a fresh look to the franchise.

Director David Bowers returns to direct the fourth film the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, now playing in theaters. The only thing different this time around is the new cast of actors. Jason Ducker has now taken over the role of Greg (previously played by Zachary Gordon), and he does a terrific job making the character his own while embodying Gordon’s portrayal. Charlie Wright takes on the role of Rodrick, Greg’s wannabe rockstar brother. While actor Wright is funny and a born comedian, it felt like the film made the character dumber than the original franchise. Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott pick up the mantle of the Heffley parents (previously played by Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn).
