Courtlin is Absolutely Obsessed With ‘Wonder Woman’
I stayed up "late" last night to go see the new "Wonder Woman" movie, and I was definitely NOT disappointed!
If you're looking for a good movie to go see in theaters, my recommendation would without a doubt be "Wonder Woman." The movie is officially out today, but I was able to check out an early screening at Wehrenberg last night. Since I went to the movie by myself, I wasn't able to discuss it with anyone afterwards, so I'm about to pour my heart out to this blog! Don't worry, it's spoiler free!
First of all, WOW. Just wow. After the disappointments of "Batman vs. Superman" and "Suicide Squad," I was hoping for more from DC for this movie. They didn't let me down. "Wonder Woman" was everything I had hoped for and so much more. The story was fresh, comprehensive, interesting, enlightening, and entertaining. I never once looked at my phone to see what time it was, because I didn't care. I never wanted it to end. DC had a lot weighing on their shoulders with this one, with it being the first female hero origin movie for both the DC and Marvel universes. I don't know why it took so long, but I feel like the people behind this movie really put their heart and soul into it, and it definitely showed.
We need to talk about how bad ass the character of Wonder Woman is in this movie. She is fearless, strong, smart, kind, fierce, confident, and just an overall bad ass. The ideal female role model. Gal Gadot was the absolute perfect choice for the job, and her acting was on point. Not to mention, she might be one of the most beautiful human beings to ever grace the planet. Seriously, I don't know if I have a bigger crush on her or Chris Pine, who played the role of Steve Trevor. His eyes pierced my soul. Also, I was thrilled to see that they snuck Professor Lupin into the movie (not the actual character from Harry Potter, but the actor who played him)!
As a woman, it was so awesome to see such a bad ass female be the total focus of a superhero movie. I didn't feel like the movie was cheesy or overdone at all. The fight scenes were among my absolute favorite parts, especially that first battle on the beach. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I'm sure there are people out there who didn't enjoy the film, but I will never understand why.
Overall, I was insanely impressed by DC's "Wonder Woman." It is easily their best movie yet, and now it's one of my top three superhero movies of all time. I hope they continue to share her story, and I hope that Marvel follows suite with another fierce female hero.
