Movie Review: Wonder Woman (spoilers)

Unfortunately not good. Does not pass the Bechdel test for basic watchability in a movie (must be more than one woman, who talk to each other, about something other than a man). And it had the power to make me feel bad about my hair when I glanced in the mirror this morning and found my locks did not appear lusciously flowing and soft like a feminine mane, but instead had more of an unbrushed, flat, stringy, strawlike consistency, shot through with grey.

I can fix this movie! Let’s make Robin Wright the hero and keep Diana as a little girl who happens to be a god and add jokes, lots of jokes. No World War 1, no bad unplaceable accents, cut the three stereotypical sidekicks (Indian Chief? why????? Is that in the comic book?) cut the most unsurprising surprise: the villain is the one with the English accent!

I’ll keep the bare plot: a young god learning that humans don’t quite deserve to be rescued, but deciding to rescue them anyway. But I’ll then send Diana to a good Alanon group so she can learn that she doesn’t really have to save anyone except herself.
