What does Wonder Woman do? She saves the world from war. But what do we, women do? We save the day. Every day!
I went to see the new Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot last night. As I was feeling all confident and badass, I got home to discover a clogged toilet. But guess who saved the day? My super-powers kicked in, I fixed the toilet without calling a plummer and oh man, I realised how Wonder Woman feels like. I’d better add this one to my list of “10 Times I Felt Like Wonder Woman”
As for the movie, have to say I left the cinema with mixed feelings. Too many cliches packed in a superheroes movie, don’t you think?
- Wonder Woman saves the world… for love.
Well, as nice as it sounds, I found it a bit too cheesy. Women can fight for pragmatic reasons too, you know?
- She ends up single…
… as if women don’t deserve to be strong, independent…and have a family and live happily ever after. This reminds me of a previous rant about the dilemma “Are Single Women More Successful?“. Yeah, I get the point of making sacrifices, but why does Superman get to keep Lois Lane?
- Germans are bad, English are good…
I’m sure you’ve seen this one in at least one other movie.
Good movie overall, how could I not love the powerful woman who destroys the bad guys and makes it all about peace in the world. Plus I love that she has an accent, meaning there is hope for non-English speakers to become heroes too. But why is she in Paris?
