So news broke yesterday that we are indeed going to see Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut next year on the new Warner Brothers/ HBO streaming service. Which to be honest while I’m not that excited about a new version of the movie this could mean huge things for streaming and Hollywood.
Thursday Movie Picks is an event run over by the wonderful Wandering the Shelves blog. Weekly topics are chosen and you pick 3-5 films corresponding with the topic. This weeks Thursday Movie Topic pick is Unforgettable Film Scores and I knew immediately I was going to share some of my all time favs.
Well I was very, very patient all day and finally got my Wonder Woman 1984 trailer.
Gal Gadot is really pulling off that 80’s look!
Top Ten Tuesday today is Character Traits that Make You Love Them which sounded like the perfect chance to do an ode to the characters I love.
I was really going to go for it but had to control myself because while great hair and a killer beard might give me heart eyes it’s not really a trait.
Most apply to multiple characters obviously.
Directed By: James Wan
Okay, I went to the first showing Thursday night and I swear I’m going to keep this more reasonable than, “Oh my God! Two and a half hours of Jason goodness…”
Directed By: Zack Snyder
Expectations were somewhere in the middle considering all the behind the scenes stuff that went on with this movie. When I couldn’t see it this weekend I started hearing it had bombed because it made under a hundred million. Really? I mean the movie itself had some problems (some big) and it’s not something I’ll see again in theaters but I enjoyed it and I’m still hopeful for the DCEU.

This Wonder Woman tale by one of my favorite authors was definitely on my most anticipated lists. So I picked it up immediately upon its release last week and I have to say I’m a little torn. The story is about how a teenage Diana saves a girl from drowning but that girl is a blood descendant Warbringer. Not will she bring war she tends to cause conflict and strife wherever she goes and her presence on the island is destroying it.
Prediction for the end of the year: I will own an embarrassing amount of Hela merchandise!
I’m going to keep this round-up of the first part of 2017 super simple and try not to cry about the fact that we’re halfway through because while 2017 might be halfway over, at least entertainment wise, I think the fun stuff is still to come.

Directed by: Patty Jenkins

Wonder Woman has been in my top three most anticipated movies of the year probably since the comic-con trailer dropped last summer. But as much as I loved her in Batman v. Superman I had been burned before with those Suicide Squad trailers. However my anticipation only went up after the reviews started coming in early this week.
Did they do her justice?
