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. And now that I’ve finally gotten to watch it, thanks to HBO Max, I’m so happy. With a runtime of

Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Myers are back in first trailer for Halloween reboot




Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode in the new Halloween reboot. This new film will take 40 years after she and Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) had it out with the psychopathic masked murderer Michael Myers.

“For a lot of people, out of sight, out of mind,” Curtis said in an interview for Entertainment Weekly when they visited her on set earlier this year. “For her, out of sight, out of her mind. Michael Myers is her sole focus. Because she [knows], the same way Loomis knew, that Michael Myers is a threat — and no one else seems to take him so.”

Laurie remains a traumatized woman, as seen in the new trailer, but Curtis seems to be having a blast playing Strode in the new film which will act as if the many previous sequels to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic never existed.

“The vibe here is the same vibe as 40 years ago,” Curtis told Entertainment Weekly. “David Gordon Green and [co-writers] Danny McBride and [Jeff Fradley] and their cameraman and their sound mixer are all best friends. Everyone who’s come here has come here to honor Halloween 1978. The prop master, Mick Flowers, did The Revenant. He did the f—ing Revenant! Do you know what I’m saying?”

This new Halloween also stars Judy Greer, Will Patton and Nick Castle (who played Myers back in the 1978 version), among many others.
