Movie Review: Wonder Woman

I finally watched Wonder Woman.

I did not think it was very good?

What were you all talking about.


I don’t really need to introduce Wonder Woman, because everyone was talking about it. It’s a superhero movie. It stars a woman, which is a positive change. It’s set in World War I.

And it really isn’t much more than action.

Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a lighthearted, fun movie set in the Harry Potter universe. It’s comedy with bits of adventure and romance stirred in. There is a “serious” B-plot, but it’s not that good and not that important, so whatever. Go ahead and watch it if you want more stories in the Harry Potter universe that aren’t always about saving the world. I had fun, at least.
