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 - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
