Hi everyone! Hope all is well in your part of the world. Well I don’t have to tell you that my life’s been practically consumed by my short film now. As they say, writing is pretty much rewriting and that’s where it’s at now… constant script revisions. It’s a very exhausting, humbling and also fruitful learning experience for me. But believe it or not, that’s not the worst part of it so far… scheduling is definitely a bloody nasty process!
So pardon me if I haven’t been around your blog lately, heck I haven’t even been around MY own blog. But I do miss doing these community links… so let’s get to it!
Margaret participated on the Unsung Heroes Blogathon. Of course it’s one of Ed Harris‘ movies 😉
Let’s take some time from movies to gaze at Cindy‘s stunning shots of full moon over Sycamore Canyon, AZ
Jordan reviewed an Italian film Perfetti Sconosciuti (Perfect Strangers)
Meanwhile Allie just reviewed a book, Truly Madly Guilty. I actually haven’t done a book review before, not sure I’m cut out for that. I think I’ll stick to movies.
As I’m about to write my quick thoughts on LOGAN, glad my friend Mark loves it as much as I do!
On the other hand, glad I’m not the only one who isn’t so ga-ga over La La Land. Eddie didn’t fall head over heels with it either.
I love Michael‘s Best Album Covers series, this time he shone the spotlight on trumpeter Freddie Hubbard’s album Hub-Tones
Speaking of music… Chris has been listing his Top 100 songs of 2016. Check out if one of your faves made his list.
Ahhh yes… wonder indeed!! I have posted about Wonder Woman here which was around Comic-con last year. Man I can’t be more excited for this movie. It’s one of the rare DC movies I’m actually super looking forward to.
Woof, this gives me goosebumps! I love that first part of the Amazon princess Diana in warrior training. Gal Gadot IS Wonder Woman! I actually had trepidation about her casting initially, but just like Daniel Craig w/ Bond, I’m definitely sold as soon as I saw the first teaser!! Interestingly enough she actually auditioned to be a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, heh I’d love to see her play a female spy, and the fact that she was in the Israeli Army, she likely could kick any of those Bond actors’ arses effortlessly 😉
I like this alley scene, definitely reminds me of a scene in Superman: The Movie, the first time Clark Kent saves Lois Lane from a bullet in an alley, complete with Diana wearing dark rimmed glasses too!
Nice to see Connie Nielsen back on screen again as Diana’s mom Hippolyta. Oh and Princess Buttercup er Robin Wright as an Amazon warrior? Yes please! Chris Pine is instantly likable as her love interest, glad he took on a second-banana role despite being one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men. But mostly I’m thrilled because we have a woman behind the camera this time! That in itself is history in the making, Patty Jenkins is the first woman to have directed a live-action movie with a $100 million budget.
I sure hope this movie will be a huge success… I mean dayum, DC sure needs a hit right about now. As for me, I’m hugely optimistic… heck this scene alone looks darn epic!!!
I still gets goosebumps when the Wonder Woman theme came on… thanks to Hans Zimmer & Junkie XL. I love that they use it sparingly for the finale, which made it all the more impactful.

I’m not a huge fan of the Marvel Universe (maybe I’m just getting tired) but this is one hero that resonates with me. I remember as a teen watching her on television, and the trailers look awesome, Gal Gadot looks marvelous, and if it has Chris Pine in it, I’m watching it.
Three cheers to you and your script adventure. I’m very happy and proud of you!
Hi Cindy! Yep I’m a bit superhero fatigue too at this point, though I am looking forward to THOR Ragnarok and of course this one. Ahah yeah Chris Pine is handsome, though he has that earthy quality about him too that makes him more relatable.
Well it seems we may to delay filming a bit, but for sure we are still making this… one way or the other.
I can’t wait to watch it!
Thank you for the link and good luck with your project! i’m sure all this hard work will pay off!
I liked Comic Con trailer for Wonder Woman the most but this one – despite iffy ‘future of justice’ – what the hell does this even mean?! tagline – was also very fun. I loved little WW smirk at the beginning and Gal seems to strike the right balance of fierce, innocent and playful in this. I really really hope it’s gonna be good
My pleasure Margaret! I spent nearly 6 hours at Starbucks just on script revisions, so yeah filmmaking is definitely NOT just all glitz and glamor.
“… the right balance of fierce, innocent and playful” Yes! That’s a perfect description of Gal. Fingers crossed it’s good!
Yup scheduling is a pain when it comes to making a movie, I’ve lost actors, editors and camera guy the last I shot a short movie. Hopefully things will work out for the best!
I like what I’ve seen so far from Wonder Woman but I can’t say I’m excited for it since it’s still a DC production. We all know they haven’t been that successful when it comes to putting good movies since Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. I’m hoping Wonder Woman will break that trend, I didn’t see Zack Snyder’s name mentioned anywhere so that’s a good sign. Lol!
Hi Ted, well hopefully I can retain my two leads, that’s the hope anyway.
Yep, no Zack Snyder’s name mentioned so that is a VERY good sign indeed!
I think it looks awesome but I’m hoping it would be good and the people at Warner Brothers give Jenkins some control in what she wants to do. That’s the reason why the other DC films have been disappointing.
Hi Steven! Yep I sure hope WB gave full creative control to Jenkins, the way they did w/ Nolan w/ the Batman franchise. I think that’s the only way the film could be decent!
I hope it will be a success too. No reason why there can’t be more lead female superheroes.
Amen Alex! That’s why this movie needs to be a success so hopefully we’d get more female-led comic-book films, as well as other genres!
On that note just saw Hidden Figures. Not a great title but an incredible movie. So inspiring. Just brilliant.
Glad to hear you love Hidden Figures! Yes it’s brilliant and inspiring, worthy of its Oscar nomination!
I think you’ll like my latest post 🙂
Thank you for the linkage and kind words, Ruth. And oh yes for the new WW trailer. It’s one of my most anticipated films of the year. Summer movie, or not. Thanks.
Oh and best of luck with the short, Ruth.
Yes, June can’t come soon enough!! And thanks for the well wishes, still trying to work out scheduling right now, that’s perhaps the most challenging part of all!
That Wonder Woman film NEEDS to be good for our (and DC’s) sake! haha
It looks like it could be a quality film, and I have a lot of faith in it. Fingers crossed!
Best of luck with your film, Ruth! I know I haven’t been awfully present lately but I’m very glad you are making it and I am so looking forward to seeing the final result! So happy for you
Hello Fernando! Yes the film NEEDS to be good, a lot is riding on it, but esp in regards to a female director helming a female-led superhero movie! We need more of those!
Thank you so much Fernando, really appreciate the support. Well at this point it’ll be a miracle if we can even make it, ahah. Scheduling the talents, director and location is a BEAST!!
Yeah! I bet it’s not easy but hopefully you’ll have something people will love and you will be very proud of. So excited for it!
Thanks Fernando! Did you read my recap of the script reading I did from January? Then you can see the pics of the two lead actors for my film. Yeah I’m excited but nervous at the same time. I guess that’s natural for a first timer 🙂
From what I can tell in your recent posts you are making good progress with your short film project and the work is keeping you busy. Nice you still blog a little, even though you don’t really have much time these days. Thanks for the link! Nice to see fellow Dane Connie Nielsen cast in a big movie!
Well, I feel like I’m making one step forward two steps back even just trying to figure out the filming dates! But I suppose your first film will be made with your blood, sweat and tears… and so far it sure feels that way.
I miss Connie Nielsen, been ages since Gladiator, which I wish had launched her career!
Wow thanks for introducing me to Michael’s blog. I’m currently checking out his Best Album Cover series, all of them (especially The Beatles ones) 😀
Awesome post! ❤
Thanks Shivani, glad you’re discovering other blogs, that’s the whole idea 🙂
That was certainly a great trailer for Wonder Woman, it seems to have shaped up quite nicely. I like the World War I setting (we’ve seen lots of World War II on screen but not that much from the first war), the action looks thrilling and the dashes of fish-out-of-water humour seems like a good fit – I just hope it doesn’t verge on shoed-in slapstick like we sometimes get in the Marvel films (as much as I love those of course!).
Hello Chris! Yes I love the retro setting too, and the production design looks beautiful. I like the lighter tough and bits of humor, but I doubt it’ll be more slapstick-y like Iron Man. In any case, I just hope this will be a GOOD movie!
I really, really want Wonder Woman to be good. DCEU has to nail something.
Ahah yes they sure do! Let’s hope it will indeed be good Brittani!
I really liked the trailer, got me excited for the film.
Glad to hear Vinnie!
It really got me interested and invested, like all good trailers.
Thanks for the link to my Logan piece! As for the WW trailer, well, I’m trying to not get too carried away but I’m quietly hopeful it will rescue DC’s fortunes.
Thank you for the link Ruth! 🙂 I’m crossing my fingers for Wonder Woman, hope it doesn’t let me down. The poster looks great!
Thank you for the link, Ruth! I’m still not sure how to write a book review myself, I kind of just splurge some thoughts onto the page, but then that’s how I review movies too, ha!
I for one am getting very excited to see Wonder Woman 🙂
