That's a look of a kid who's thinking 'I make comics about a grown man is his underwear and even I'm not this juvenile.'

So many memories flooding back to me after seeing the movie. That was such a major nostalgia trip.

1966 Batman (R.I.P. Adam West)
I may not have been born around the time the 60s Batman show came out, but I can remember tuning in to MeTV a lot in order to catch several episodes of it that would air (in fact I still tune in whenever I can). Part of the reason I loved the show was because of West. I seriously hold Adam West up there with some of the best Batman's out there. Even beyond Batman, his work on other projects like Family Guy, Fairly OddParents or other guest spots he did brought so many smiles to my face. He had such a presence that will surely be missed.

So long old chum. You will never be forgotten.

Wonder Woman 2017 Contest

The DC Extended universe has been sort of a rocky road. I didn’t care for Man of Steel, Batman v Superman had its moments but ultimately was a huge mess (Though I hear the extended cut is better), and Suicide Squad………..moving on. Point is, I didn’t really think they had produced an actual good movie……until now. Wonder Woman is not just good, it’s actually great. And it feels so good to come out of a DC film and say that.

There’s a lot of things to really enjoy about this, but I think the main reason why this movie works so well is Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. She was easily one of the standouts in Batman v Superman last year and she is even better in her own solo movie. She really embodies the character really well and is just so charming and charismatic in the role, it’s impossible not to root for her or smile. She also has some good chemistry with Chris Pine who’s deadpan delivery is very funny. It’s maybe no surprise there’s a romance between the two, and it’s very believable. The action scenes are also very well done with several stand out sequences and choreography (I won’t give away how it plays out, but there’s a part involving Wonder Woman and a tower that is so freakin’ awesome). There’s also a hopeful and optimistic tone about it that I also greatly appreciate. The other DC films up to now have been either too drab or depressing and just didn’t leave me feeling good coming out of them. This is the first time I came out of one feeling happy after one of these. Wonder Woman is a very optimistic and hopeful person who actively wants to save people and do the right thing even as things get in her way. That can be very inspiring not just to kids (especially girls) but even for grown adults. It’s the first time the superheroes in this universe felt like superheroes.

Honestly the big low points in the movie I can think of with this movie are the villains. This movie has the same issue that a lot of Marvel movies tend to face, and that is that while the heroes are done well, the villains are kind of left in the shuffle. The two villains seemed kind of stock and didn’t seem all that interesting. But that wasn’t enough of a turn off for me. I can watch plenty of movies that have weak villains over and over again, and I think the same can be said with this. The rest are just minor nitpicks that I won't really get into since they're really inconsequential. 

On the whole, Wonder Woman is an absolutely (to put it bluntly) ‘wonderful’ movie. A lot really works about it. The action is great, the story is well paced and Gal Gadot is very delightful and practically IS Wonder Woman. If you liked the other DCEU movies, you’ll like this. If you didn’t like the other DCEU movies, you’ll still like this. And I feel so happy to come out of a DC movie (not done in LEGOs) and come out really loving it. It feels so good to say that. Now I do have more hope for Justice League.

Well another May, another Marvel film out, and once again it’s another winner. You almost got to admire how far the MCU has really come along since 2008. Never in my lifetime did I ever expect that one of the best films to come out from them would involve a property that no one had heard of which involved a talking Raccoon and a walking tree who only says 3 words, but……here we are. The first Guardians of the Galaxy was already a pleasant surprise when it came out and honestly, I think Vol. 2 is even better. Bold statement but I really do think so.

Partly why this feels so much better is because each character gets more to do this time around. Star Lord gets the most development out of all of them considering he’s kind of the main character of the group, but all the other cast members get plenty of time to shine. Gamora and Nebula get way more to do this time and share a conflict with each other that not only gives more insight into their past but also into giving more development for Thanos (who by the way is not physically in the movie). Drax has a nice romance with a new character Mantis (and when I say nice I mean he’s just saying mean things to her, but it’s still funny). Even Yondu gets a lot more to do and has a nice connection with Rocket. Baby Groot is also adorable and they use him just the right amount so people won’t get sick of him. The banter between all of them is just as hilarious as the last film and there were several moments where I was laughing hard at some of the jokes. But they balance out the humorous moments with some genuinely heartfelt moments as well. 

Another thing that makes this better than the original for me is the villain. As much as I love the first one, the villain was kind of weak (though that can be a complaint about most of the Marvel movies). The main villain in this feels more threatening and there actually feels like some actual motivation to their actions apart from ‘I want to destroy everything just because.’ Even the Sovereign race, who I thought were gonna be just stern figures with no humor in their bodies actually had some humorous moments in this. Maybe Marvel has broken their weak villain stigma.

And of course the obvious things you would want to be good in this are very good. The action is exciting and fun to watch, the interactions like I said are hilarious, the acting is good all around, not just from the returning characters but from the new additions including Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff, and by the end you will want to go out and buy yourself a Baby Groot toy (I know I wanted one).

So overall, this was yet another hit for Marvel and is a case of a sequel being better than the original (at least for me). I would tell you to go and see it, but I’m sure at this point you’ve already made up your mind. But in case you haven’t, I would highly recommend it.
