Wonder Woman 1984

By s. Friday, December 25, 2020 , , , , , , , 24 Comments


It's been a long, long wait. Back in the summer 2017 we were delighted by Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman. It had thrills, laughs, emotions and most of all - so much heart. Now Jenkins returns with a highly ambitious sequel, which is very, very different from the original film. The saddening and dark setting of the World War I has been replaced with vibrant colors of the 80's, the serious background is now a fantastical tale and Williams' gentle, lovely score made way for Zimmer's music which sounds as if he did few lines of coke on a rolllercoaster. But it still feels like a familiar Wonder Woman story because Gal Gadot's Diana is back. And she is the same as we remember her - both an inspiring goddess and a highly relatable person with hopes, fears and desires. We know her, we like her, we admire her. We want to follow her on her journey. And the heroes we see ourselves in are those who end up inspiring us the most.

"The Crown" delivers its best season yet and introduces the new generation to Lady Diana

The hugely anticipated season 4 of The Crown is finally here and it's yet another series from Netflix that is so good I actually watched all 10 episodes of it in a row. It's the show's best season yet and it's about to catapult it to new level of popularity for the obvious reason - it introduces the iconic Princess Diana.

After months and months of waiting today is the finally the day. This is not the first footage many of us has seen - Warner Bros. cleverly added a very impressive teaser to Tenet but foolishly didn't release the teaser online so a lot of people's first look at the movie was camrip footage. But now the proper trailer has been released.

Saturday TV Special: What We Do in the Shadows

By s. Saturday, May 9, 2020 , 14 Comments
Plot: A look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of three vampires, who've lived together for over 100 years, on Staten Island.
Structure: Every episode focuses on another issue our adorable vampires must face - trying to find food (ideally virgins), dealing with their living conditions (and avoiding a disliked roommate who happens to be an energy vampire), organizing a vampire orgy, dealing with animal control, trying to make sense of zoning committees, fighting with werewolves, and many, many others.
Verdict: This is easily way, way funnier than the movie. While the film was very amusing and clever, this series never fails to deliver the lough out laughs and is so incredibly witty. Also the characters are very likable in spite of being blood - or energy - thirsty vampires, which is quite an accomplishment.
