How could I not post about the fantastic success that is ‘Wonder Woman’!! (No spoilers in this article)

I watched it and loved it.It’s probably my favorite superhero movie and I’ve seen them all, even the bad ones! The sheer awesomeness of this powerful female character, driven by justice and love, was overwhelming! Patty Jenkins did an incredible job directing the movie! I’m not going to get into the controversy around Gal Gadot’s political stance about Israel. All I will say it that, hopefully learned something from the character she played so flawlessly. Yes, there are plenty of superhero movie Tropes. Yes, it’s predictable at points. BUT – It is nuanced, has depth and complexity and it does not disappoint in the Ass Kickery department!

Travis M Andrews, WAPO, “‘Wonder Woman’ soars at the box office, breaks superhero glass ceiling” – Wonder Woman” topped the box office this weekend, earning $100.5 million domestically, which is the largest opening yet for a movie helmed by a female director.” “The critical reviews for “Wonder Woman,” meanwhile, have been astoundingly high. It earned a 93 percent “fresh” rating on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, making it tied for the best-reviewed superhero movie since “The Dark Knight,” according to Entertainment Weekly.”
