As promised, here’s our full review of this week’s–and maybe summer’s–blockbuster:
It’s no secret that we’ve been critical of DC’s cinematic efforts, up to this point, so how will Gal Gadot’s portrayal of one of their most beloved and valuable properties fare?
Hang on, cause it’s about to get all kinds of verbose up in here.
Ryan and I are going to take a look back at one of his favorite movies of 2016, and one which I recently–finally–got around to seeing:
Released in the middle of August, and starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, and Ben Foster, the film has only grossed around $38 million at the box office, but managed to nab FOUR Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor.
So let’s talk about this critical, yet not box-office destroying, gem of a movie.
It’s no secret that Jason and I have been critical of DC’s attempts to get their movie universe going, but always with the hope that they might get their act together and make the kind of movie that will finally get their collective train back on the right track.
It looks more and more as though they may have – finally – done that.
The new trailer for Wonder Woman is out.
What do we think?
Listen for yourselves.
[Apologies to everyone that Ryan isn’t in on this one. He is currently in New York on the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them press junket, and was exhausted last night after we finished talking about Doctor Strange.]
