Characters Traits I Get Heart Eyes Over…

woody and bo peep in toy story 4

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.

Aquaman

Directed By: James Wan

Grade: A-

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…”

Justice League: Spoilers!

Justice League

Justice League

Directed By: Zack Snyder

Grade: B

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.

I saw the Wonder Woman Book tag first on Delphine the Babbler and really enjoyed it. The original creator of the tag is on youtube: Amber’s Books and More.

Since Justice League is out this week it seemed as good a time as any to do this one!

Wonder Woman Warbringer

Warbringer

Warbringer

By: Leigh Bardugo

Grade: B

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.

Hela Breaks the Hammer

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.

Wonder Woman

Directed by: Patty Jenkins

Starring: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, etc.

Grade: A

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?

The Secret History of Wonder Woman

21855259

The Secret History of Wonder Woman

By: Jill Lepore

Grade: A-

Not so much about Wonder Woman as an incredibly researched and detailed biography of her creator William Moulton Marston. With long and equally detailed looks into early feminism, the birth control movement, early psychology and even the psychology and censuring of both cinema and the comic book industry itself. As well as Marston’s relationship with his wife and live in lover.

Overall interesting although at times a bit of a chore to stick with. I have mixed feelings about the book probably because I have very mixed feelings about Marston. So I’m going to break it down into two parts. The Personal Life & Wonder Woman.
