‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Is a Disaster

I’m sitting here stunned by what I have just seen. Yesterday I watched Wonder Woman and yeah, it has its annoying moments, but overall, it’s a solid superhero film. Wonder Woman 1984 is the exact opposite of Wonder Woman.

Its action scenes, save for the first one in the film’s first twenty minutes, are lame and provide no sense of wonderment. Its story is trying so desperately to speak a profound message that it collapses into its own goals, becoming something that just takes too long to reach something special. And then finally when it seems like the story is going somewhere the climax arrives and it’s just…lame!

My Review of ‘Soul’

Disney/Pixar did it again! They made another great movie. Soul just may be the smartest Pixar movie since Inside Out as it deals with the afterlife, our personal journeys, and just what makes life worth living.

Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey lead viewers on a spectacular adventure with some of the best and most creative animated moments I’ve seen from a Pixar movie. The characters were hilarious, there were some legitimate laugh-out-loud moments, but as is always important with Pixar’s movies, it hits the heart as well.

It’s Christmas Eve!

I’m excited everyone. I’ve finished Christmas shopping with my family and now I’m sitting back, relaxing, and binge-watching all six episodes of the second season of His Dark Materials while preparing for Soul, Wonder Woman 1984, and lots and lots of (hopefully fantastic) NBA games.

And that’s while still participating on my The Clone Wars marathon, which leads into Star Wars: Rebels, and then The Mandalorian, and I probably won’t even be finished with that marathon before WandaVision hits on January 15.

There’s so much going on and I am just elated. It’s been such a boring year when it comes to entertainment but now it seems I just can’t keep up with all of the awesomeness.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. Happy Holidays!

Guess Who Should Star in ‘Rangers of the New Republic’?

There have been rumors that Cara Dune would end up getting her own spin-off series and it seems like she will with Rangers of the New Republic but I just realized another fabulous character that would make a fine addition to the series; Wedge Antilles.

In the Aftermath Trilogy we learn that Wedge plays a large role in taking down the Galactic Empire during the Battle of Jakku. Following the Battle of Jakku we know that he is a flight instructor on Hosnian Prime and that he eventually gets married to Temmin “Snap” Wexley’s mother Kare Kun where they settle on the planet Akiva until the battle between the Resistance and the First Order (hence that ridiculous cameo in The Rise of Skywalker.)

But what if we can fill in a bit of those gaps and make him a key figure in the Rangers of the New Republic series? He’s been a beloved Star Wars character since his induction in 1977’s A New Hope. Why wouldn’t Favreau and Filoni get a chance to expand his storyline in a series that is destined to be pretty cool?

What do you think? Do you see want to see Wedge Antilles in Rangers of the New Republic? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

I’m Watching ‘The Clone Wars’ Over Again

The Mandalorian may be over but my Star Wars adventure is far from complete. After the exciting inclusions to the series that featured direct nods to the cartoons which I have been faithfully watching over the years, I decided, once Season 2 had ended, to watch The Clone Wars over again and then Star Wars: Rebels.

I’m so excited to be nearly through the first season already. Seeing “Snips” at the time be so reckless (like her master, honestly) and unsure of herself is kind of wowing. She has grown so much over the years and when I think of her inclusion in The Mandalorian it’s just stunning to think how much she has matured and become a different person.

Plus, I just really love the banter between Anakin and Obi-Wan in this show. It’s really fun (and funny.) As I finish each season, I’ll update you and share my thoughts.

Until then, I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.
