We’re back from our week away! For us it felt like a lifetime and we’re really excited to get back in the swing of things. It’s just too bad we don’t have a stronger movie to start with. Today we’re talking about Wonder Woman 1984, Patty Jenkin’s follow up to the 2017 smash hit.
Wonder Woman 1984 dropped on Christmas day on HBO Max, but you know that. You’d have to be living under a very large rock to not be up to date on the goings on around WB, DC, and HBO’s new streaming platform. WW84 was their first big test and, not unlike Mulan, it fizzled. A full year of delays and constant wishy-washiness drummed up hype and anticipation, but maybe not the kind they were hoping for. And sadly, it wasn’t good enough to bring people back around.
While we did enjoy Wonder Woman 1984, it’s getting pretty severely roughed up, and we kinda understand why. It’s too long, there’s too much going on, not enough cohesion, and definitely not enough 80s flare. Gal and Chris’s chemistry is undeniable, but to what end? And the Cheetah storyline? Oof. It’s a fun movie, and parts are really good, but it’s bogged down by a litany of problems and we’ll dig into those in the episode.
We close out by opening our XMas gifts to one another! Everyone loves this time of year, I mean who doesn’t love getting and giving gifts. So we decided to share our fun moments with you!
What did you think of Wonder Woman 1984? Do you recognize the issues with it or do you think it’s great the way it is? Let us know over on Twitter or in the YouTube comments! Also, let us know if you got anything cool for the holidays! For now though, grab your lasso that apparently can do anything and settle in for today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
