Wonder Woman 1984 (3/10)
by Tony Medley
After suffering through the first one, I swore I would not subject myself to any of the obvious sequels, but there is such a dearth of material out there, I forced myself to endure well over two hours of this nonsense. Whenever Gal Gadot utters a line, I am reminded of Tony Curtis allegedly muttering, “Yonda Lies Da Castle of My Fodda,” in one of his earlier movies (1954’s The Black Shield of Falworth?). But that’s not the worst thing about this movie.
The path to greatness is not what you think. See young Diana in action in this exclusive first look at the opening scene of #WonderWoman1984, in theaters and on HBO Max December 25.

It is even more absurd than the first one that grossly distorted history. This just creates the eidos of a fantasy world that never could exist, forget the absurdity of the superhero concept. Fortunately, fans who attend this type of attempt at entertainment do not expect accomplished acting or writing or any thought-provoking content, so they won’t be disappointed.
