Movie review: “Wonder Woman 1984” still the best DC has to offer

10. Wonder Woman: 1984

My lifelong fans know that this number 10 spot, unlike the other nine, is reserved for a film that I didn’t necessarily hate, but just thought was a letdown. There are some good elements here, mainly Pedro Pascal playing what is probably the most charming villain ever. I understand what director Patty Jenkins was trying to do by making this a sort of an action/romantic comedy, but by trying that she failed what could’ve been a great follow up.  Kristen Wiig is given nothing to work with as Cheetah. It feels like a bad stereotypical 90’s comic book baddie, nerd glasses and all. For a project that cost over 200 million dollars, it feels like a bad Saturday morning cartoon.

Review – Valley Girl (2020)

by Kevin Muller

Jessica Rothe has stated in many interviews that singing in the 2016 film La La Land was a thrill.  Before that film, the actress, who is theater trained, was only known for her acting ability, including the one that put her on the map, 2017’s Happy Death Day.  In La La Land, she was one of Emma Stone’ roommates who urged her to join them in a night out on the town, through the song “Somewhere in the Crowd.” This, along with her rising popularity, was enough for producers to get behind the idea of providing her with a starring role in a musical. Enter Valley Girl, a remake of the popular 80’s film that starred a fresh faced Nic Cage. However, in this one, it is a musical that the characters sing popular renditions of famous 80’s tunes. This would be a perfect opportunity for the actress to showcase her talents. Does this one sing like a bird or plummet to the ground?
