Dome Pondering Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)


What is it about?

Who is in it? 

Gal Gadot - Diana

Favorite Scene:

Favorite Quote: 

"What one does with the truth is more difficult than you think. I learnt this the hard way, a long, long time ago. And now, my life will never be the same..."

Review: 

Wonder Woman is so, so awesome! So epic! Just everything about this film was utterly fantastic. 

First and foremost, the message is awesome. The empowerment of women, and also the subtle lines throughout the movie to bring to light various forms of oppression, and at times, revealing how ridiculous they are, was awesome. 

Then of course, there is the plot and the entire visual that was this film. From Wonder Woman's fight scenes, to the twirling camera angles, to the authenticity of the film's setting from the past - all of it was fantastic. 

And yes, there is Gal Gadot who graduated from Fast and Furious underling to mega star in this one film. By the way, Chris Pine was fantastic in this as well. 

All in all, if you're into super heroes, check this out. If not, still do. How can you not? 

Grade: 5/5

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
