TGE Ep 26 – Watches: Wonder Woman

Summer continues and the biggest summer movie of the year is the feature on the latest episode of The Geek Embassy Watches!*

<do doo dut do> Wonder Woman! <do doo dut do>

But seriously folks, this summer’s Wonder Woman movie has been the topic of much debate and discussion all over the internets. As a long time fan with a very serious personal connection to Wonder Woman, I’ll be the first to admit that I was worried how well my favorite Amazon princess might be treated on the big screen. I’m thankful for the outcome.

As usual, we discuss the movie in great detail. It’s three weeks today since it opened so I am not too concerned about that. But consider yourself warned anyway!

Ryan takes a measured response and is not too terribly celebratory of the movie. Mark lands much in the same space as Ryan. They both had far more negatives about the movie than I had which is great because they balance out my OMG THIS IS THE BEST EVER vibe. (Even though I feel like some points were rather nitpicky.) Watch the episode to see what our final tally is on total thumbs up. (Spoiler: I gave it two enthusiastic thumbs up!)

BTW that awesome, “Not all Princesses Need Rescuing” t-shirt complimentary gifted to me from Ript Apparel. Buy your own and help support TGE!

Until next time, get your geek on!
Regina & Mark & Ryan

*We’ve renamed “Summer Movie Podcast Series” (awkward) to The Geek Embassy Watches so we can run this series ALL YEAR LONG!

To Discuss

Did you watch Wonder Woman? What did you think? Will this movie inspire countless more female-led heroes? We can hope! Let us know in the comments.
