Episode Notes

The Pointy Hat Cast is a movie podcast. I guess you could call it a movie review podcast. We just like movies of all types, genres, and from all time periods and talking about them!

Hosts: Barry, Isaiah, Nate, Sam

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020): It was directed by Patty Jenkins. The screenplay was written by Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham. It stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, and many more.

Wonder Woman 1984 is a horrible mess of a film where it tried to tackle too many different things and ended up missing the mark for almost everything. It couldn't make up its mind on whether or not it's a kid's film or not, and even small things like sticking to a set color palette. It also misses an opportunity to delve into the theme of the strength of the individual based on truth by comparing Kristen Wig's Cheetah to Gal Godot's Wonder Woman. At least it was better than Scorpion King...or was it?
