Critiques


I love a strong, competent heroine who is an actual threat to the bad guys and not a push over or dumb bimbo. Of course, there is room ...

"Jen of the Jungle - Part 1" is an incomplete story. Should I write more to the story or not? --> Good news everyone! Survey says: Yes! 

83%
15 deviants said YES: Are you kidding? An obsessed, masked stalker attacks Jen, a Watcher in the Water, traps galore. I can hear Two Steps From Hell tunes playing as the soundtrack already. Give me more!
17%
3 deviants said NO: Sexy leopard-print bikini, snake wrestling, spreadeagle stake outs, inseminoid tendril plants, a lustful enemy tribe, Amazons wanting a sex slave, a sinister secret organization after Jen. BORING!
Please read this article by Mark Hughes at Forbes.com:  'Wonder Woman' Shatters Records With $200+ Million Worldwide Opening

www.forbes.com/sites/markhughe…

So, naysayers, Wonder Woman won't change the world, eh? Newsflash: She already has! If you want more superheroine movies to ever be made, then you are going to have to thank Wonder Woman. Why? Because she is the reason that profit-seeking studios are going to green-light more female-character-based films. They all want a piece of that $200-plus million action.

Say it with me: "Thank you, Wonder Woman!"

After letting the title of the Forbes article 
mentioned above sink in, consider these quotes from the article:

"Patty Jenkins is having the biggest opening weekend for a female director in cinema history."

"Wonder Woman is now tied with The Dark Knight and Iron Man as the best-reviewed superhero films in history."

NOT change the world? It all depends on how you define "change." Will it be change on a larger scale or on a smaller scale? One movie can not end world hunger and bring about world peace. But one movie can change the hearts of viewers who finally have someone to embody a hero for them they can relate to, and change the hearts of children who will grow up to make the superhero movies of the future. Hell, this one movie helped change my heart that could otherwise give up and chuck it all because of life's nasty, nagging, lasting tortures.


No, nobody gets pay raises because of movies, but people get their hearts raised above the pain and crap they have to deal with in their everyday lives. Is there no power in myth and legend and imagination? Somewhere out there is a kid who will someday direct future superhero movies who will mention Wonder Woman as an influence, much like Patty Jenkins referred back to Christopher Reeves' Superman as influencing her. Perhaps Superman is not even as good as Wonder Woman, but it did change the world when it changed Patty and helped her bring us our first great superheroine movie by a great female director with a great female lead. (NOTE: "Great" does NOT mean "Perfect.")

Change the very fabric of society overnight, NO. Change people a little bit at a time to rise above what society constrains them to be, YES.

But DeviantArt is big enough for people to hold differing points of view. To each their own. To those who did not enjoy Wonder Woman I say, fair enough. But I did, and a record-setting number of other people agree with me.

Just an author writing solely to please my own tastes while hoping that others may enjoy coming along for the ride.

I had hoped to be able to post a link to my literotica.com submissions when the time is right, but I have since found out that we can post text stories here as well. I may give my stories a shot here first, or publish them simultaneously in both places. Another thing I may do from time to time is to post shots from my role playing in Second Life or Champions Online.

As for the question of gender and my name "Val," I have intentionally given myself a safety cushion here of a slightly vague name. Is it Val as in Val Kilmer, or Val as in Valerie? I enjoy an air of mystery, so you can take "Val" as you prefer. I do not intend to use DeviantArt as a dating site, so there should be no problem.

I also want to keep my Real Life as completely separate from my edgy online presence as possible. And if a stalker does not know who or what they are stalking, maybe they won't even bother in the first place.

In any case, I will take no offense when anyone assumes me to be of either gender. One of my probably unattainable goals is to be able to write well enough from either gender's perspective that I seem to be that gender. Crazy, I know, but it's so crazy, it just might work! Hehe.

Plus, the harder confession is likely to be my true age, after which there would probably be less concern about gender, haha, but you never know! *smiles*

Thanks for the faves Val. I didn't have a chance to comment on your super popular WW Journal post but I finally saw the movie and was impressed by Gal Gadot's performance. An excellent blend of innocence, resolve and strength. That scene where she steps out of the trench to save the children of the village was truly an iconic moment. And that score!

You 6x viewing qualifies you a super wonder woman supporter status!

You are very welcome! I'm so happy you enjoyed Gal Gadot's performance. I love her as my new, favorite Wonder Woman, though, of course, Lynda Carter will always be my "first," hehe. And the scene of stepping out of the trenches backed by the soundtrack thrills me and touches me emotionally just thinking about it.

I'm up to seven showings now, and going for number eight on this coming week's $5 movie Tuesday at the local theaters. And, true confession, on opening weekend I wanted to pump up the box office, so I spent money for three extra tickets, meaning I've actually already supported Wonder Woman to the tune of ten matinee-price tickets. Thank you for declaring me a super-supporter! *smiles*

Wow. You almost single handedly were responsible for making the film a blockbuster! It made me chuckle to see your giving input to Terrymcg about the details of the WW costume. You really are an expert!

*blushes at the "expert" designation* I'm glad you took my movie-based experience as being worthy of a chuckle. Hehe. I even came home with my souvenir drink cup that has three color images of Wonder Woman wrapped around the outside. Go big, or go home! *smiles*
