"I, Patty Jenkins, hereby choose spectacle over substance." Wonder Woman 1984, co-written and directed by Patty Jenkins is a better instalment for me. Mind you, it's a better film, in respect to the previous installment, just not a good one. It breeds a beastly ideology at the heart of the film and never learns how... Continue Reading →
