The Wonder Woman movie is out on DVD this week, and as usual, we’ve got a great Honest Trailer to celebrate! Time for all of us to rewatch the movie!
Poor Charlie, though…
Wonder Woman was a hit this year, which is great! She’s a great hero and more women need to be at the front of big time superhero movies. So, of course, Wonder Women gets the typical parody treatment!
This was an OK video. The Moana bit was inspired and the voice-acting was superb, but I think the ending was a bit too focused on mocking Batman. At least the How It Should Have Ended people shook up the normal status quo and didn’t have Batman and Superman in a cafe!
Can you believe we have to wait all the way until November for another superhero movie? Man, what’s wrong with the world? Good thing we’ve got other comics to fill the time! Detective Comics, Hulk comics, Wonder Woman comics, X-Men comics and Squirrel Girl comics!
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl wins Comic Book of the Week because Ryan North and Erica Henderson revel in what it would actually be like to visit the Savage Land!
I checked in on Amazing Spider-Man this week but decided not to review it because it’s largely a Secret Empire tie-in and I’m not super keen on reading or reviewing a ton of tie-ins. Thankfully, this tie-in is largely focused on Dan Slott’s ongoing story of Doc Ock taking back Parker Industries, so I dig that part of it. And it moves the Spider-Man/Mockingbird relationship forward a little, which I also like. But mostly it was a big, busy, crazy issue. So good times there!

Like the lazy schmuck I am, I stopped doing full movie reviews awhile ago. There just wasn’t time between seeing the Thursday night early showings and having to go to work the next morning. Plus, considering all Marvel movies are generally good to great, how much more need be said? And it’s not like my reviews were making it to Rotten Tomatoes…
So now I’ll deliver my Wonder Woman review in List of Six form! It’s much more fun that way.
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good
Overall, I enjoyed Wonder Woman quite a bit. It’s got solid superheroics with a lot of heart. It’s not a genre-game changer and it doesn’t redefine the superhero movie, but it’s still very good, and that counts for a lot. Is it the best movie in the DCEU? Of course! But that wasn’t a high bar to reach. I thought Man of Steel was a bad movie, and Batman V. Superman is not much better. And I actively forget that Suicide Squad was a thing.
But hey, Wonder Woman is a fine film! Join me after the jump for my thoughts! And FULL SPOILERS for the movie, so watch yourself.
Happy Wonder Woman Weekend, everybody? Have you seen the movie yet? I did the other night and I quite enjoyed it! Wonder Woman was solid superheroics and a lot of heart. It wasn’t a genre game-changer, but it was easily as good as some Marvel movies. I might actually be legitimately interested in seeing her in Justice League now.
And might as well make the Wonder Woman Annual issue the Comic Book of the Week! It was a Fifth Wednesday this week, so there were not a lot of new comics. I also scoped out new issues of Hulk and Generation X, but the Wonder Woman Annual was delightful.
Meanwhile, Secret Empire also continues onward, and I’m still enjoying it. It’s a little scattershot at the moment, with a whole bunch of simultaneous plot lines, but I’m still happy with it on a general, entertained level. Though Secret Empire feels more like an alternate reality or What If issue than an actual, in-continuity storyline.
