“Wonder Woman 1984”

6.2

I expected so much more…

I loved the first Wonder Woman for its nuance and perfectly balanced touch when it came to filmmaking. It was everything that the other DC movies weren’t. You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

So many great ideas and scenes, left undeveloped. So much potential, wasted. So much… runtime. So much… 1980s for no reason.

Third time’s the charm, right?

“Love Life”

7.9

They had me at Anna Kendrick. A modern love saga telling the tales of dating in 2020. All the crazy, fun, and awkwardness. A great kickoff series for HBO Max. Adorkable to the max.

The emotional journey caught me a bit off guard, and really came together in the end. I can’t wait to see where this goes if there’s a next season. “Sex and the City” updated for millennials. Get ready to shout “just break up already” and “yas girl” at the screen way more than you’d expect of yourself.

“McMillions”

8.7

Wow… between this and “Chernobyl”… HBO’s docuseries are knocking it out of the park! The characters and story here are the stuff Hollywood only dreams about. Agent Matthews steals the show, though. He was born to break this case. You’ll spend six episodes on the edge of your seat, waiting for the next twist and turn to this epic tale of deceit. You’ll also never look at McDonalds or Monopoly the same way ever again.
