Wonder Woman 1984 Review - Nothing At All Wonderful About This One!

From the studio which has continuously struggled to bring something good and new on the table, comes its worst attempt yet in the form of Wonder Woman 1984 (2020). When I say worst, remember I am also counting David Ayer's Suicide Squad (2016) . So, lets find out what all made DC Extended Universe's newest venture, such a huge disappointment. Film  – Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Duration  –  2h 35 min Director  –  Patty Jenkins Main Cast -  Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wig, Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright Rating  – 1.5/5 (No spoilers follow) In a world where every studio, especially Marvel and DC, is coming up with numerous storylines and excuses to make a superhero film, Wonder Woman 1984 is probably the lamest one yet. Not only is it incredibly corny and boring, it also succeeds in being cringe-worthy at various moments. What's hard to believe is that it comes from the same director, same cast and almost the same crew as the exceptional Wonder Woma

Must Watch Alert! Netflix's The King

From The Last Kingdom to The Crown and now to The King, Netflix has upped it's British period drama game. With it's beautiful cinematography,  glorious battles and gorgeous visuals,  The King is sure to leave the viewers in an awe.  To watch the trailer click ⬇️



Duration - 2h 20m
Director - David Michôd
Main Cast - Timothèe Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson, Ben Mendelsohn and Sean Harris
Rating - 4/5

David Michôd's The King is about young Henry V who has to deal with deceit,  war and treachery on becoming the new King of England in 15th century after the death of his father and brother.  As a young man with peace as his soul aim,  he is caught between the ideals of his advisors and his own.  The film is a gripping drama about war and peace which questions the very existence of these two terms and how they are intertwined with each other. Appropriately casted as King Henry V, Timothėe Chalamet delivers a career high performance with brilliant dialogues and rousing speeches. Joel Edgerton's Falstaff acts the most loyal advisor-cum-friend of King Henry and delivers very powerful and motivational lines throughout the film,  which just like King Henry also have a deep impact on the viewers.

Just like any other period drama,  The King finds it's antagonist in the French king's unintelligent son played very sillily yet hilariously by Robert Pattinson. His over exaggerated accent was fun to watch but its sure to give your ears a bad time. Unfortunately Lily Rose-Depp doesn't get much screentime but her character is highly important for the final few decisions King Henry makes. Sean Harris' William is the mysterious character whose motivations and actions are hard to decipher throughout the film.

But that's not all. The direction, cinematography and color grading of the film is worth an applaud and even if someone doesn't find the characters that interesting,  the visuals alone are worth talking this ride for. The visuals are amazingly supported by a thrilling and stirring background score which will surely stick with the viewer's mind for a long time.

To sum up, it is a very thrilling and goosebumps inducing watch which is sure to make your weekend more enjoyable. It is available now on Netflix for all; so movie heads, plugin your headphones and get on this epic historical ride!
