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

Our First Look At Frozen 2 Is Here!


What seemed like forever, Frozen is back on the horizon.

Disney has just released the first footage for Frozen 2, the feature-length follow-up to the 2013 Oscar winner and box-office behemoth.

The new footage features a dramatic sequence in which Elsa (Idina Menzel) uses her powers to run, climb, and slide across a body of water, seemingly in an attempt to freeze and scale a wave. There are also glimpses of her royal sister Anna (Kristen Bell) traversing nature’s perils, snowman Olaf (Josh Gad), and mountain-man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) leading a herd of reindeer across an autumnal landscape.

Early newcomers to the sequel’s voice cast include This Is Us’s Sterling K. Brown and Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood. A glimpse of two new characters in the chilly teaser has already sparked curiosity among fans about the two actors’ potential roles, although a larger voice cast is surely expected to be revealed later this year.

Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee have returned to direct the sequel, which will feature new songs from award-winning songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and a script by Lee and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures). Peter Del Vecho also returns as producer.

An official sequel to Frozen was announced in March 2015, about a year and a half after the first film opened and proceeded to turn animation on its head, scooping up over $1.2 billion at the box office (and becoming the highest-grossing animated movie of all time). The title inspired a global frenzy for Frozen merchandise, spin-offs, and a Broadway musical. The film’s narrative has continued in various forms, particularly in the shorts Frozen Fever in 2015 and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure in 2017, but Frozen 2 will be the most significant continuation of the story thus far.

No official synopsis has been released yet but you can check out the trailer below.
