Beauty and the Beast review

Wonder Woman review

Four films in to the DC universe, this is more like it. Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad may all have been commercial hits (they haven’t fared so well critically) but they have largely been joyless deviants from the canon comic book stories and an evident attempt to burn … More Wonder Woman review
