Wonder Woman 1984 is once again available to watch on HBO Max and so I decided to watch it because what the heck. It’s a Wonder Woman movie and I was in the mood for a superhero movie.
I watched the film totally expecting to hate it again like last time but I actually kind of enjoyed my experience. Knowing the story and which icky parts to skip gave me the chance to understand what Patty Jenkins was going for and while the film isn’t perfect I did find it somewhat enjoyable.
The thing about Wonder Woman 1984 and why it performed so poorly among casual viewers was because it did not live up to expectations. Most superhero sequels tend to get bigger and flashier than their predecessors. Take The Dark Knight which features both the Joker and Two-Face, two extremely well-written antagonists that give Batman a challenge he didn’t get in the first film. And Marvel has pretty much perfected the superhero sequel.

One of the funniest comedians out there right now is Saturday Night Live alum Leslie Jones who recently made Twitter her very own comedy bubble by sharing videos of herself watching the news and commenting on people’s backgrounds via Zoom calls. Now she’s done it again by live-tweeting her entire experience watching Zack Snyder’s Justice League and it’s honestly one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.
To give you an idea, here’s a single tweet from her hilarious thread.
This tweet alone is absolutely hilarious and that’s just a speck-sized portion of the thread. If you’re looking for a laugh this will do it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
I am a superhero movie fan. Why? Because I’ve seen so many I sometimes can’t remember all of the ones I’ve seen. I’m talking watching even the crappiest ones like Elektra and I even tried to watch Green Lantern (I didn’t make it very far.)
I have even watched all of the DCEU movies (Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, Justice League, Wonder Woman, The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam!, Aquaman, and Birds of Prey.) My top three are Shazam!, Man of Steel, and Wonder Woman. The rest fall into a pack of not-so-great-superhero-movies with Aquaman just edging out the others as an every-once-in-the-while film.
I went into Zack Snyder’s Justice League expecting it to be better than Whedon’s cut. It was…and that is about it. Snyder’s version is four hours of bloated, testerone-inspired superhero nonsense that left me still confused by the end of the movie even though we supposedly got two extra hours of content to make the story easier to follow.
So, because I have a lot to say I’m going to break this review into pros and cons. And of course, we will take the cons head on first.

Powerful, fierce, this chrome-domed villainess was everything the trilogy needed…and more. Continue reading An Incredible Mash-Up of Heroic Women Throughout My Favorite Franchises
Wonder Woman 1984 is the latest superhero film for fans to enjoy and as with all superhero movies there’s a good chance children are going to want to watch it too.
So, is the new Wonder Woman movie suitable for children? Honestly, not really.
The movie’s theme is a bit too complex for children to really get behind and there are some scenes in the film that are a bit adult. The movie may be light and airy but I wouldn’t be taking my kids to see it, due to its adult moments with Diana and Steve or Max Lord and Barbara Minerva. It takes its PG-13 rating seriously so make sure to watch it with your children with caution.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
So, I watched Wonder Woman 1984 two days ago and I came away from the film so baffled by its underwhelming/terrible storyline that I was forced to digest it over the course of two days so that I could collect my thoughts and write something cohesive to say. Well, I finally have gathered my thoughts on the conundrum that is Wonder Woman 1984 and I’m here to share what I feel is a satisfying analysis of a movie that surprised me in all of the wrong ways. So, with that being said, let’s get into the meat of this thing.
(This will be a long read.)
