I could say a lot of things about the WONDER WOMAN movie. Like I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. I could certainly say a lot of positive things about it like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is perfection. But then so is Connie Neilsen as her mother and Robin Wright as the general of the Amazons. I could have gone on watching the first part of the movie, set in the land of the women warriors, with no men, for the entire length of the movie and been quite satisfied.

And I could quibble with some things. Like, wait a minute, where was she hiding that shield? Or, is the plot meant to imply that people working for peace really secretly want war? Or, I'm really happy that it was directed by a woman and stars a woman action hero, but I wish the next one will be written by women as well, unlike this one, because I think it would be even more insightful about strong women. (Also, why cant I find a movie poster that has the usual credits for stars and director, instead of ones that only have images of Wonder Woman but not even the full movie title?!)

But in the end, the one thing I can and want to say for certain about the new WONDER WOMAN movie is this: 'bout feckin' time.
