I think we can all agree that the last few DC films have been a bit more than disappointing, so it should me of no surprise to you when I say that I definitely held my breath going in to watch Wonder Woman. I had predetermined that it would be the make or break film for me. Either it would sink like the others and I would hang up hope for DC and not waste my time watching The Justice League when it premiered, or it would actually be better and I would 't have to shift all of my "superhero film energies" toward Netflix + Marvel and waiting for the Black Panther to come out. The best part was when Gal Gadot showed up and started sorting things out.
Less than 10 minutes in (yes I checked my watch) I knew I was going to enjoy this movie, and that's a rarity for any film. I wasn't constantly waiting for a moment to laugh or something exciting to happen. There was even a very brief moment of sadness. But, without giving too much away, I've rounded up a few reasons for you browse (no real spoilers) to motivate you to watch or re-watch the film.
