I have been waiting for Wonder Woman to come to the big screen since DC got it’s act together and began to chase Marvel’s success. I was teased in Batman v Superman…and then had to wait like forever. Now – I’m waiting for Justice League. But, I have to say, Wonder Woman was worth the wait.
Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress, stars as the most epic of all female superheroes, and she rocks the roll. She captures the feeling of Diana, Princess of THE Amazons so well.
The film is stuffed full of action and a lot of war, since the “flashback” of this origin story shows her coming into the human world via WWI, prodded by the crash landing of Captain Steve Trevor, played by the smoking hot Chris Pine.
Besides all the war, piles of dead bodies – the film is very family friendly. There is no blood, PG language, and a hint of romance – that I really thought would be more but was basically a kiss that faded to black, with the hint of characters having sex. There is a scene with Chris Pine nude, with a flash of him “covering himself” and an innuendo about size – but it’s not anything to get anyone worked up over. I’ve seen worse
Overall, the movie kicks serious butt. I still think DC is nipping at Marvel’s hindquarters as far as the epicness of the films. DC’s new universe movies are just a bit more sparkly than Marvel’s gritty
Even after Wonder Woman, I believe Marvel is still winning this war. And – I have to say, I’m really looking forward to Spiderman Homecoming. I got to see the preview today. Can you say — excited?
“We’re headed to the front. We’re probably going to die. This is a terrible idea!”

The Dead Zone is a classic Stephen King, published in 1979, now available in audiobook and read by James Franco. The Dead Zone isn’t my favorite Stephen King, but that’s like comparing chocolate ice cream. With the narration by James Franco, they did a major push to get this one out there and “reread” by the masses. There is always a difference in reading and hearing it on audiobook, I think of audiobooks as performances – like a play of a book. And it’s even better when I’ve read the book, and now get to hear it on audiobook. Like an encore. This was an all-star encore!read more
