Wonder Woman- New Release

The movie succeeds by being a feminist film but not cramming it down our throats.  Women are empowered by this film, but it’s egalitarian to the sexes, not a battle of them.

Beauty and the Beast- New Release

At first I was worried that my early enjoyment of the film in progress was based solely off the nostalgia fumes of the original, but I succumbed to this version on its own merits.
