WONDER WOMAN [2017]

Monster director Patty Jenkins pulls off the near impossible and makes Wonder Woman the first DCEU film not to be a complete disaster.
Set during World War I, Diana, Princess of the Amazonians, leaves the comfort of her island paradise home to battle the evil---blah-blah-blah.
Ain't nothing new but it's done with so much enthusiasm one can't help but enjoy themselves.  Gal Gadot is an absolute delight as the title character, which shouldn't surprise anyone who's unfortunately sat through Batman v Superman.  There's plenty of flaws to be found if you give it enough thought but that sort of thinking isn't going to get you anywhere fun.  If anything, this one sits aside Sam Raimi's Spider-Man and Richard Donner's Superman as comic book films that are nothing but pure spectacular fun that kicks ass.
