We deserved better
Release date: June 2, 2017
Director: Patty Jenkins
Who should watch this movie: Fans of Princess Bride.
When should you watch this movie: When you’ve just watched Red Sparrow and need to recover.
The sell: One of the biggest threats facing women in public is having to talk to men (period) about the wonder woman movie. I’m serious, this movie really put feminists in a bind. We all had to go see it because “first woman superhero” etc. and then we all had to go back out into the world and pretend it wasn’t a shitty movie. Personally, I have never been more emotionally conflicted than I was for the entire duration of this film. One one hand, I was crying watching Robin Wright ride out in slow-mo on horseback to fight germans on the beach like Brad Pitt in Troy, i.e. the most satisfying thing to ever happen on film. On the other hand I was crying because none of the amazons have body hair. Are you seriously telling me that on an island populated exclusively by warrior women, they are shaving daily??? They don’t have the time!!
