Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful June of 2017! It wasn’t necessarily a super successful month as far as how many books I had planned to read and July is going to be pretty lazy as far as book-reading goes. Some of you Harry Potter nerds out there will know that the twentieth anniversary for Harry Potter was recently celebrated. Because of this, I’m mostly taking July off to re-read the series. I might read a few books I checked out from my library in between, but Harry Potter is my priority (Don’t tell me you are surprised).
What I am not telling you is that I will stop blogging for a month. I have reviews scheduled to go up all throughout July and will still have the time to write a few extras for August in advance. With that matter cleared up, let’s talk a bit about:
What I Watched in June: An Overveiw
Wonder Woman –
Some Actors and Actresses: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Danny Huston
Age Group: Middle schoolers and up (Just my opinion due to levels of violence displayed)
My Rating: 3.5/4 Stars
Synopsis: “Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.”
As I have said before, I have never been a Marvel or DC fan. I don’t really think I ever will be, but that doesn’t mean my friends will stop trying to induct me, especially because I truly appreciate their efforts. I was hesitant when Wonder Woman came out, but ended up going to see it with some friends anyway, just to see if I liked it. Turned out that it was really good. I really liked seeing the morals presented and this might be my favorite superhero movie. Seeing a movie with such a strong, unashamed woman as the central focus was uplifting and inspiring.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers (just in case), but the ending was just… wow! I think we always expect superheroes (and anyone in a story, really) to just live happily ever after. I really appreciated the surprisingly nostalgic ending. It made the movie very raw and was actually one of my favorite parts, despite the resulting feels.
Thanks for reading! Let me know if any of you guys have seen Wonder Woman and what you thought!
