    Highly recommended one should really view this one.
    Watching the 4K UHD version tonight. One of these days I need to put "The Hateful Eight" into the player. Or wait until all Quintin's films are released in 4K UHD, since I will end up rebuying them again. LOL.

    I was bored, ...



    Yes I did, on regular Blu-ray, not UHD and not 3D.
    Overall: 21

    Last word: What was I thinking, ...nothing.

    Thumbs up Wonder Woman



    "When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny."

    I watched this twice; first in 3D couple nights ago, and in 2D last night.
    I prefer in 3D, more immersing, like being part of the story, of the characters, interacting with the actors and actresses, good and bad, interacting with WW, Gal Gadot, with the decors, sets, locales, CGI constructions.

    This is quite a light DC flick in comparison to Marvel flicks...in general, and it helps too that our heroine is ... a woman; good for the feminine audiences. It has more devotions and emotions than distractions and blood. It also helps that the film's director is ... a woman.
    You can tell and feel the overall different type of cinema vibes for an adventure/action flick from the comic books variety. ...Like Cat Woman, like Spider Man, with that woman's touch. I sure do anyway.

    I wasn't greeted with wows and gifts from heaven, but the 3D picture quality and the audio soundtrack are mighty fine. It was light and delightful @ the same time, nothing too forced only slightly CGI emphasized on many occasions...a la Hollywood mode.

    It was a fun experience @ the movies, @ home, with Gal, in 3D. ...Cool 3D effeX.

    Overall (everything; film, 3D CGI, music, boom boom bass and Gal): 74
    Gal alone = 94

    Last word: Don't judge a film by its cover, fly in it with your emotions and all your heart. ...Recommended.
