Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #3 (2017) “Origins”

After last August’s Suicide Squad, the next installment on DC’s road to Justice League is the Wonder Woman solo film.  The third trailer for the film is the best yet, focusing on Diana’s origin and her her first journey to the world of men during World War I.  I have had issues with some of the dialogue in past scripts, but this seemed much better, focuses, and this film has looked gorgeous since it was unveiled at Comic Con.  It’s got a tough spot on the summer schedule surrounded by Pirates 5 and Transformers 5, but if things keep looking this good and franchise fatigue finally sets in on either the bots or Jack Sparrow, WW could carve out the beginnings of a franchise of its own. Starring Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, and David Thewlis as Ares, Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 2, 2017.

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #2 (2017)

After August’s Suicide Squad, the next installment on DC’s road to Justice League is the Wonder Woman solo film.  The first trailer for the film was unveiled at Comic Con. The second full trailer is out now, along with three gorgeous posters.  “Gorgeous” is really the best word to describe WW so far.  It looks stunning.  However, every time I hear dialogue, I wince.  Geoff Johns didn’t get hired to start righting the disastrous rollout of the DCEU until after Wonder Woman was done, so his influence isn’t going to be felt until Justice League.  Question is: by the time we get there, is anyone going to care when Marvel is throwing no-hitter after no-hitter?  Starring Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, and David Thewlis, Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 2, 2017.

Movie Review: Big Eyes (2014) *A Reasonable Critic Review*

Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Big Eyes
At the risk of sounding like a heretic, there was nothing wrong with Dark Shadows. It was a pretty good film in its goofy way. And if Tim Burton had made it in the years between Batman and Ed Wood, people would have enjoyed it. But Burton, aided and abetted by his longtime collaborator Johnny Depp, had gone to the gothic/whimsical well one too many times. Dark Shadows was also the first indication that people were tired of Johnny Depp. The weird costumes and makeup that had once made him seem so uninhibited had grown into ritualistic obligations. And Burton’s trademark style, so enchanting back when he made Edward Scissorhands, was now familiar and rote. Continue reading Movie Review: Big Eyes (2014) *A Reasonable Critic Review*

Trailer Time: Big Eyes (2014) Tim Burton, Amy Adams

Just when you think you’ve given up on Tim Burton and his cookie-cutter weirdness, he goes and does something like this and reminds you why you were so in love with him in the first place.  It’s been 12 years since he made that did that with Big Fish.  I’m hoping Big Eyes is a return to the form so many of us felt he’d lost.  The trailer gives that kind of hope.
