I am not entirely sure what my personal preference is, I think it's a range of things, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm willing to try all things at least once.

I want to be an Amazon!

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 11 August 2010 11:31 (A review of Wonder Woman)

So, basically this movie is the origins of Wonder Woman. But it is a lot more than that.

In the past WW has sort of been... a bleh, you know? It was as if she was only created as a "Here's a Super Female Hero" to shut the feminist up. With her ordinary powers (super strength, flight) and her rather laughable accessories (Lasso of Truth? and the Invisible Jet which she doesn't really need because she can fly) she wasn't even that good of a superhero. But WW is awesome in her own right - and this movie is a step towards the right direction.

The movie starts in battle, the Amazons against the monsters of Ares (God of War). Hippolyta (Wonder Woman's mother) and Ares crosses blades with the Amazon Queen rising as victor. As she's about to make the final blow, Zeus interferes. And Ares becomes their prisoner instead. But for their grief, Hera gives the Amazons an island of their own- Themyscira and in addition, Hippolyta is given a daughter - all of this in the first 9 minutes of the movie.

To make things short and to make sure I don't spoil the goodies of this movie, basically Ares escapes and the world is in peril and Diana (Wonder Woman) wins the right to go over to man's world and save the day.

The score of this movie is amazing. The voice actors are wonderful fits to their characters most notably, Alfred Molina as Ares, Rosario Dawson as Artemis, Oliver Platt as Hades and Virginia Madsen as Hippolyta. To be honest, Keri Russell's voice didn't exactly fit for the lead, but really it can be easily looked over.

It's action after action and dull moments are none-existent. What's particularly interesting are the Amazons - each butt-kicking one of them (well all except for one) and the Amazon zombies nearing the end (though really were rather useless but still awesome). I particularly found their interpretation of Hades delicious - renewing an old over-used character.

However, there are a few things I didn't exactly care for. One, making Etta Candy (Wonder Woman's best friend) thin and air-headed. I thought that was a horrible thing to do. A butchering of the true Etta Candy. Two, the romance with Steve Trevor. I know Steve Trevor is pretty much like the Lois Lane of Wonder Woman but still. It just seemed a little forced. Though I have to say, the makers of the film did this rather tastefully. Three, Alexa the Amazon. Personally I don't think she can even be considered an Amazon. She's the annoying cliche little character foil and boy did she get on my nerves.

But apart from that, Wonder Woman is an amazing movie. It's really quite a shame that animated films don't get the same weight or the same regard as ordinary ones. I recommend this to everyone. Honestly guys, cartoons aren't just for kids.

Did you miss me? Well, miss me no more, cause I’m back here to finish what I have started. I think all of you who have participated deserve to know how it ends. Meaning I’m going to finish my “Who’s Listal’s Favorite Female Model” list, and later on see what happens, if I’ll be staying or leaving once that is done. We’re very close to arriving at the list’s top ten, so, every vote counts, especially cause in this next 20 days, half of the girls who are still on the list will be eliminated.

Cast your vote, participate and help decide!

Hello, and let me start this by wishing a Happy 2013 to those I hadn’t wished this before. Hope 2013 is a great year for all of us. =] But, well, as you may have imagined, what I’m here to do is announce that Phase 4 of Who's Listal's favorite female model has just begun, and this is a particularly hard phase considering 4 girls from each group will be eliminated this round. So, don’t forget that your opinion counts in order to decide this, and check it out.

Also, if you’d like to know how much any of the girls who have classified for the current round have gotten during the previous phases, just let me know! =]
