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! :)

Just Got Back!!!

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! :)

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 )

Ready for our Amazing Amazon? :)

I'll be hosting my final BradyGirl_12 Challenge on [community profile] wonderwomanlove and Wonderwomanlove (LJ), my comms dedicated to the Amazing Amazon. Check 'em out and join up! Truly, history will be made with the release of this film, and hopefully we've got a lot of fannish inspiration coming our way. :) Details on the Challenge soon, and [personal profile] ctbn60 has already created a fantastic banner, ready for all participants. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, some WW links for you:

Might be why the movie has been set during WWI because of the vitality of the Movement.)

Season 1 Wonder Woman

Saturday, March 11th, 2017 09:52 am
bradygirl_12: (steve--diana (adoring looks))
METV is beginning the Season 1 cycle of the Lynda Carter '70s TV show tonight (8:00-9:00 EST). Season 1 took place during World War II and also featured many scenes on Paradise Island with Diana's mother and sister Amazons. What made Wonder Woman special was in this first season, not so much in the later seasons which were updated to the '70s, IMO.

Hi, luvs! A quick reminder that Halloween is almost upon us! This is my final 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge and I'd like to make it a good send-off. There's a generous grace period if Halloween has come up too fast for you.

Speaking of Challenges, I'm cooking up one for Wonder Woman next year to celebrate her first-ever live-action movie. It'll be the last of my Challenges, and I'm hoping it will be a success. I'm thinking of kicking it off on the movie's Opening Day, and will decide when the posting window closes. 2017 could be a WONDERful year! ;)

BTW, Lynda Carter was fantastic as the Prez on Supergirl this week! :)

Timeless

bradygirl_12: (jack o'lanterns (glittering))
Hi, luvs!

I'm only going by the promos, as obviously the show debuts tonight, but if you're a fan of time travel, you may want to give Timeless a look. It's on NBC tonight at 10:00 and hopefully will be a good show. :)

Fall is finally here! After an early September heat wave, we're in cooler weather now. The trees are starting to turn, and I've got my baby pumpkin and gourds decorating my place. The colors are all red, yellow, and orange with some black thrown in for Halloween! :) My sister and I will be going to the orchard in a few weeks and I might take a trip soon to Trader Joe's for some mini pumpkin pies and cookies. :)

Football is in full swing, and the real season begins for us Pats fans with the return of Tom Brady from his unjust suspension. Watch out, NFL! Could be scorched earth if we're lucky!

Have a good day and enjoy the best season of all! :)

The [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang and [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang will be opening soon for artists to claim stories (this Saturday at noon EDT). Stories are up now for early perusal, so if you're interested, check 'em out! Marvel's are here and DC's are here. Marvel has 35 stories and DC has 5 this year.

Funny how Muses work. My [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang started slowly, even though I had the beginning and end and some scenes I wanted to put into the middle. For whatever reason, despite my deadlines, it was slow going at first, to the point that I wondered if I would have to drop out (which would have been a first for me!) but this past week has been all Big Bang, and I should have the last chapter finished this week. *fingers crossed* I did have to submit my manuscript at the final check-in at 80% instead of 100%, which is a first for me. Still, it's been a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing if an artist claims my story today. :)

Merry Solstice!!!

Hi, luvs!

It's a wonderfully sunny day, which is appropriate as it's the Summer Solstice! Whoo hoo! :)

Funny how it's now entering the darker half of the year when it's summertime, but the days will start to shrink after today. Every day is a gift, right?

For all you Clex fans out there, the [livejournal.com profile] clexmas Spring Fling! Reverse Bang has closed art submissions, but now it's time for the writers, vidders and music mixers to get busy! The Bang is open to all versions of the Clex, not just Smallville, so if you've got ideas from comics, cartoons, or movies, you can use those, too!

Congrats to Cleveland sports fans for a 52-year championship drought in ANY sport ending last night as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the National Basketball Association's Championship Series. It's a sweet feeling, isn't it? :)

Just got back from the eye doctor with a clean bill of health. Always a little nervous, y'know, because...eyes! So I am very relieved. Wearing dark glasses while my eyes are dilated. :)

Now that the has been properly pimped, we turn our attention to the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! Eagerly anticipating Captain America 3: Civil War? Finally ready to write that Steve/Bucky epic that's been nagging at you since Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier? Checking in at Heartbreak Hotel for the Steve/Tony split? Trying to figure out the new world of Marvel Comics since the Incursions erased the status quo? Then head over to [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang and sign up! You've got until May 15th, authors! :)

Once the movie's out in more countries, expect a TON of inspired sign-ups! :)

bradygirl_12: (new frontier (cover))
It's that time of year again! :) The [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang is open for author sign-ups until May 15th. Got an idea that just won't leave you? Inspired by the latest crop of movies and TV shows? Excited by DC: Rebirth? Or do you enjoy the classics? You will have plenty of room to shine as this Bang is a lot smaller than its sister challenge, [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang.

Quick rec: if you haven't checked out Legends Of Tomorrow or only watched the first episode, give it a(nother) try. I believe it's improved. Don't read the message boards. They are havens for nattering nabobs of negativity! :)

Spoilers )

The new ABC series, The Family, is uber-creepy. I don’t intend to write a review every week as with the comics-based shows, but if you want to get in on the ground floor, catch up on Week 1 with On Demand. It aired last Thursday on ABC but its second episode airs this Sunday (its regular timeslot) after Once Upon A Time. Trigger warning: talk of child rape.

It’s not Supernatural-creepy, but it’s compelling. )
bradygirl_12: (steve--diana (adoring looks))
The World War II episodes of the classic Wonder Woman series is starting their cycle again on ME TV tonight at 8:00 EST. I'm not a big fan of when the series updated itself to the then-contemporary 1970s, as I thought that a lot of what made Diana special was lost, and she became a generic agent. The Pilot and first 13 episodes did a lot of things right, and each one is a little gem. :)

Tonight, Wonder Woman goes up against Baroness Von Gunther!

Hi, luvs!

Fall is in full swing here. The trees are starting to turn colors and the weather, while a little too warm for my taste, is semi-autumnal. I’ll be going to the orchard one of these weekends soon (getting some fresh apples and an apple pie), and the apartment is decorated with red, yellow, and orange, complete with ceramic and real pumpkins. :) I even have my flying Witch on the front door!

A reminder that the 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is running. If you have a Marvel Comics idea that you can crossover with DC, remember that crossovers are welcome, and is not limited to Marvel.

I bought some apple/pomegranate lotion the other day. It smells divine!

I usually don’t buy doughnuts or muffins, but during October it’s a weekly run to Dunkin’ Donuts to get both in pumpkin flavors! Dontcha just LOVE pumpkin flavor?

I received my Trader Joe’s Frequent Flyer in the mail a few days ago. It’s the October (Pumpkin) edition. Sweet!

Patriots/Cowboys this Sunday! Whoo hoo!

I’m going to a Halloween party next Wednesday. I’m going as a Patriots fan with my Tom Brady jersey, my Patriots cap, and anything else I can scare up that’s Pats-themed. :)
bradygirl_12: (steve--diana (happy))
Good morning, luvs!

I have been squeeing the past few days about the sneak preview of Convergence: Wonder Woman #1! It's absolutely the way I see Steve and Diana! Their easy relationship, waking up together in the morning, all-around sexiness on both their parts...you get the picture. ;) You can check out some scans on HeckYeahSteveTrevor over on Tumblr. Get a looksee while you can, because knowing DC, they'll have someone close to Diana decapitated or disemboweled before it's all over. We can't have nice things! But these scans are VERY nice indeed! :)

Tell 'em [livejournal.com profile] bradygirl_12 sent you! ;)
bradygirl_12: (lobster dinner)
Hi, luvs!

Since it's getting closer to summer, I thought I'd post this link to the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Whenever we were in Boothbay on vacation, my family would always visit this place. It was known as The Lobstermen's Co-Op back then, and they've made a lot of changes since our last visit 13 years ago, but the basics are the same: fresh seafood right off the boat in a harbor setting. :) And if you get a craving for lobster, they ship anywhere! :)
