Brando Venucci was a handsome man. Well-muscled and usually dressed in shabby tunics and breeches, his coal-black hair was wild and he wore a full beard. Blue eyes the color of the sky at dusk saw everything and missed nothing. )

I highly recommend this movie. I initially gave it an A- because of some flaws, but I gave The Avengers an A+ because it was nearly perfect, and this movie came close for me. I guess you could split the difference and give it an A, but in any case, it’s A-level! ;)

Okay, here’s my review, filled with spoilers, of course:

Hola! )

So, yeah, I LOVED THIS MOVIE! It was everything I’d hoped for: a good story, great Steve/Diana moments, Diana being kick-ass and compassionate, and saving the DCEU’s bacon critically and at the box office. Leave it to a woman. Great Hera! :)

Thank You!!!

Okay, this is a sad pothole in my Wonder Woman squee. My Dreanwidth Paid Account is expiring in 3 days! That affects even my smaller number of icons here. I probably won't even have any WW icons in the limited amount. And me with oodles of story inspiration, too!

If anyone can help me out, MUCH APPRECIATED! Thank you for your kindness.

It was not very often that they enjoyed time together without some dire crisis hanging over their heads. Their lives were often hectic, and just a normal date was a luxury he had every intention of indulging. )

The Movie's almost here! Enjoy some WW links:

http://screenrant.com/wonder-woman-reactions-screening-generates-positive-reviews/

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/05/28/530490073/some-men-are-not-happy-about-a-women-only-screening-of-wonder-woman (Considering how men have excluded women for centuries in their private and public lives, I'd say one evening of 'women-only' won''t hurt them. I also like the idea someone suggested about charging women 85% of the ticket price, reflecting the gender wage gap.)

Enjoy this video ad that played during Supergirl's finale (Nevertheless, She Persisted 2x22) featuring Kara and Alex, the American President (Lynda Carter) and Daxamite Queen Rhea (Teri Hatcher) Boy, Supergirl's America is a lot luckier than us when it comes to the White House! :)

My 2017 DCU Fic/Art Wonder Woman Diamond Anniversary Challenge coming tomorrow! :)

To celebrate the opening of the Wonder Woman movie, here are some classic stories:

Jewels In The Crown II: Heritage deals with Diana’s restlessness on Paradise Island and her mother’s wise counsel about her heritage.

Eve Of Battle: the Trinity before the battle is met.

By-The-Sea III: Angel, Baby follows Diana and Steve during a retro weekend of fun. :)

Details behind the cut )

JFK's Centennial

Monday, May 29th, 2017 09:03 am
bradygirl_12: (jfk (sun))
Today is JFK's 100th birthday. A good time to reflect on far we've come...and fallen.

The Kennedy Library is honoring the Centennial all year:



Warner Brothers' film PT 109 was unique in that its tale of a President's wartime heroics was released while the President was occupying the Oval Office. Released in 1963, JFK was still with us and had a say in casting Cliff Robertson as himself. He was wary of some teen idol getting the part! ;) A solid cast (Ty Hardin, James Gregory, and Robert Culp) back up Robertson in an inspiring tale of a man's leadership and refusal to give up in what appeared to be hopeless circumstances.

One telling scene late in the film shows a crewman apologizing for 'blowing his top' while things were looking grim and Lieutenant Kennedy assuring him that he wanted men around him who would speak their minds, which carried over into the White House. His brother Bobby was usually on the same page but spoke his mind when he thought JFK needed to hear it, and other close friends/staffers did the same. Imagine a President welcoming opposing views!



This movie will make your hair stand on end. We came close, very close. JFK had to fight his own generals throughout his Administration but never more than during the Cuban Missile Crisis. They wanted to strike at the missiles in Cuba or just go straight for Moscow. JFK did consider knocking out the missiles in Cuba but knew things would escalate, so did his best to find another way. He stared down into the nuclear abyss and got us out to the other side unscathed.



After this crisis, JFK worked to move toward a detente with Khrushchev, believing that the alternative of continued Cold War confrontations was far too dangerous to continue.

P.S. General Curtis LeMay (USAF) ("Those damned Kennedys!") was satirized in Dr. Strangelove (1964).

Well, riffling through my draft folder, I realized that I had never posted my review for Captain America 3: Civil War! Oh, well, little chance anyone will be spoiled by now, but it'll be behind a cut just in case. It's unedited, so these were my first impressions. Enjoy!

%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Wow, just saw Captain America 3: Civil War! I give it an A- overall. The first Avengers and first two Captain America movies were A+ ratings for me, because they were nearly perfect. This film got a lower grade because I'm not a fan of the Civil War premise (hated it in the comics). I prefer my superheroes working together against a common foe instead of beating each other up. 

However, this film was leagues better than Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Spoilers galore )
