Lady Macbeth; Victorian-era piece subverts the moral code

Lady Macbeth is the second really good film I’ve seen this year (the first being Graduation). Logan is very good in many ways and falls just behind in what has been a rather interesting year for movies. For starters, I can see these three movies being in my top 20 films of the year. Similar…

Wonder Woman review; Diana’s significance in our world today.

Being slightly skeptical of what DC can achieve after the very disappointing, haphazard and contrived Batman V Superman, I’m happy to say that Wonder Woman not only pleasantly surprised me with strong direction and voice but came out smashing with thorough characterization of one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC universe.
