Wonder Woman Review


Summarization:

  • Jade: Go see it. It’s a good movie and is true to the origin stories of Wonder Woman. Some problems with it, but nothing that truly detracts from the storyline. I was one of those that wasn’t too pleased with the casting of WW, but Gal Gadot KILLS it as Princess Diana!
  • Sandy: I think with this movie and other “this won’t sell”-breaking films like Hidden Figures and Get Out, we’ll hopefully be seeing more underrepresented voices get their chance to tell their stories in Hollywood.  The numbers certainly don’t lie!
