We finally managed to get to the theater and see Wonder Woman this weekend. We ended up having to wait because T was on vacation for opening weekend. Saturday we ended up breaking from our usual schedule and recorded an episode first. Then we went to the theater and recorded the Wonder Woman episode. We've never done it like that before and it definitely took a ton of time out of the day.
We had done the reserved seating in the local theater so that we wouldn't have to worry about finding six seats in the same area. We have a tendency to run everything down to the last minute as a group and I definitely did not want to have to be scrambling for space. When we got into the theater, the previews were playing but there was no picture. The movie ended up delayed because of technical difficulties. Once the movie got started though, I knew I was in trouble.
I maintained a low level of teariness throughout most of the movie. From the moment the score began in the opening credits until the ending credits began. I never outright cried, but I came close.
Confession? I never was the biggest Wonder Woman fan. I always felt like I was supposed to be, but it didn't resonate with me like it did for Teresa or countless other folks like her. I was always drawn more towards Batman and Superman and truth be told, I didn't really even know very much about her. Over the last ten years or so, that has gradually changed but growing up I had no frame of reference for her. I also had not seen Gal Gadot perform as Wonder Woman because I've yet to see Batman v Superman.
I have read up on the character extensively. One of my favorite characters from her cannon is Donna Troy and I really hope they bring her around at some point.
I'll tell you now that the movie was amazing. For more, of course, you'll have to take a listen to our podcast which I've left a copy of above. But overall it wasn't just a great Wonder Woman movie, it was a great movie. It completely transported me to her world and I wanted to live in it with her.
Highly recommend you see the movie if you haven't already. If you have, take a listen to the podcast for our thoughts. Did you feel the same way we did? Did we forget something? Let us know in the comments.
