Diana Prince lives quietly among mortals in the vibrant, sleek 1980s -- an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. Though she's come into her full powers, she maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom and courage as she finds herself squaring off against Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah, a villainess who possesses superhuman strength and agility.

Getting 3 and 1/2 Sheep
Wonder Woman 1984 had a lot to offer, at times maybe too much fanny pack. But hey, they can come in handy! I decided to finally sign up for HBO just because of this movie. I'll binge-watch the hell out the rest of this month and cancel it soon. Took long enough to watch a blockbuster like this; I didn't care where I had to go. Just show me some Hollywood action already! All that said, I enjoyed seeing Gal once again get all decked out for WW. 

No matter what you may think of the movie overall, Gal does an amazing job of bringing this superhero woman to life. She is believable, likable, and a downright joy to watch in any movie she makes. Girl crush much? Yea, sure why not. She's freaking smoking hot and can act her booty off! I dunno what else to say except I like her and really want to hope she's just as nice in real life.

All the action I come to expect with movies like this, bad guys, and gals. Hard decisions for humanity to make and some funny, witty character banter. Overall a very enjoyable popcorn movie for a Christmas evening at home, in my pj's, with the family. I can't ask for anything more. Except, maybe more butter for my popcorn!

3 1/2 Sheep
Katie and I agree on this one.

My husband and I also got HBO Max streaming just to see WW84. But we are keeping it for a while because Godzilla vs. King Kong in May!

Now, my husband has a very biased opinion of Wonder Woman, lol. He gave it 4 1/2 sheep.

I was a teenager in the 80s, and even I will admit that 80s culture hurt your eyes! So much bright. The movie overdid the "HEY LOOK IT'S THE 80s!" *shoves it in our faces." It did calm down eventually.

I liked the plot...couldn't figure out how Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) was back, but it all makes sense now, lol. The movie was longer than it needed to be...but the story is all heart and feels. The movie will pull at your heartstrings and leave you with a smile by the end—an overall positive message during a not so positive time for people in the real world.

Not as good technically as the first movie, but if you are a Wonder Woman fan (or just a Gal Gadot fan like my husband), then it's worth checking out.

Be sure to catch the after-credit scene.!


  1. Thanks for the dual review - I always enjoy them the most. SOOO relieved to hear this movie is worth the hype. I loved the first Wonder Woman movie HARD and was terrified they'd mess it up with a sequel. (PS - Yup, I got HBO Max just for this, and I'm excited to hear that the Godzilla-King Kong matchup is on its way!)

  2. I was just scrolling through FB and saw an HBO Max ad where ppl were ripping the movie apart. You guys both giving it only a 3.5 makes me think that they’re not all completely wrong. Oh well. I’ll still be watching it.

    1. Well, I just watched it a second time with my daughter lol. It is worth watching. I think I had too high expectations based on the dirs movie.
