Because of their strong, simple moral themes, critics refuse to respect the honest work and ingenuity put into the ‘Transformers’ series.
The actor’s comedic portrayal of Batman may not be considered the greatest or most moving. But he made all other Batmans possible.
Tom Cruise’s summer blockbuster offers horror, romance, and an all-American hero—but it also has a strong message regarding the death cult of individualism.
Too often, Hollywood gives us attractive villains and bad-boy heroes. Our narratives are morally muddy. Thankfully, ‘Wonder Woman’ avoids this pitfall.
The new ‘Wonder Woman’ film transcends our political moment and offers something—or rather, someone—both inspiring and thoughtful.
In recent years, Hollywood has often grappled with movies that should appeal to the activist female demographic but can deliver unpredictable results. Like ‘Wonder Woman.’
The movie is wrapped up in faux Greek mythology, true, but there’s no mistaking the Christology here.
I’m not against female-led superhero films. I’m against the implication that I owe ‘Wonder Woman’ a certain quota of praise merely because she is a she.

Had the crew in ‘Alien: Covenant’ included a couple of gloomy, maladjusted types, and had they listened to any of them, things would have gone better.
The thundering soundtrack and serious faces plainly attempt to convey a sense of profundity, but without any apparent comprehension of what actually makes a human situation profound.
Wonder Woman is a perfect storm of PR disaster. She cannot be written without triggering something that is completely and utterly unacceptable to trigger.
Moira Walley-Beckett’s adaptation of the classic children’s book tries too hard to be realistic, and completely misses the point.
Of all the directors to do a King Arthur reboot, Guy Ritchie is probably the worst. But ‘Legend of the Sword,’ for all its faults, is never dull.
