Wonder Woman | Movie Review Monday

I went to go see this movie on Saturday. I didn’t really know much about Wonder Woman before seeing this movie, so I was happy to learn that this is an origin story. This movie starts on the island of Themyscira, which is the home of the Amazons. We meet a young Diana, who is desperate to begin her training with the other Amazons. Diana’s mother is hesitant to let her start this training, which gives the impression that there may be more going on. We slowly learn more about Diana as the movie progresses.

This is a story within a story; we follow our main character, Susan Morrow, who receives a manuscript from her ex-husband, Edward Sheffield. He’s written a novel and wants feedback from her. This initially seems odd because Susan hasn’t heard from Edward in 20 years.  I’ve read a lot of reviews of this book on Goodreads since seeing the movie, and a lot of people didn’t enjoy the plot of this movie, or […]

Movie Review Monday | New Blog Feature

May 22, 2017     Marissa     Movie Review Monday, Movies   0 Comments

Hey everyone! I’ve decided to start a new feature on my blog! I am a lover of all types of media; I love to read, but I also love to watch movies and television. I know you’re all here for the book reviews and book related content, but I would also love to talk about other awesome things that I love aside from books. I’m going to start a new feature in which I review movies I’ve watched recently. This feature will be called Movie Review Monday, which means that they will be posted on Mondays when they happen. I can’t guarantee that they will be posted every week, but they will be a feature that occurs. Feel free to recommend some movies for me to watch!
