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! 

88%
23 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!
12%
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!
The title of a Forbes.com article by Scott Mendelson says it with even more certainty, "Box Office: 'Wonder Woman' Is Now Sure To Be Summer's Biggest Hit."

www.forbes.com/sites/scottmend…

Mendelson leads off with:

"Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.'s Wonder Woman earned another $6.885 million in its seventh weekend of release, dropping just 30% despite losing another 347 theaters. That brings the $150 million superhero movie's domestic total to $380.686m in 45 days. That puts it around $6m behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($386.5m as of today) so it should pass the Walt Disney/Marvel sci-fi sequel by the end of next week (or soon after) to become the summer's biggest domestic grosser."

He also mentions how Wonder Woman's domestic gross compares to some top-grossing hits of the past:

"At $380.7 million, it is pennies away from passing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II ($381m in 2011) to become Warner Bros.' third-biggest domestic grosser ever, behind only The Dark Knight Rises ($448m in 2012 and sans 3D) and The Dark Knight ($534m in 2008 and sans 3D). When that happens, it will also be the biggest 3D movie ever in North America not released by Universal or Walt Disney since 20th Century Fox's Avatar back in 2009. It's already the biggest domestic grosser of any movie not released by Universal or Disney since Lionsgate's Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($424m in late 2013)."

And finally, he addresses worldwide grosses:

"In terms of worldwide grosses, Wonder Woman has now earned $764.9 million global (it earned $3.3m overseas this weekend), putting it within striking distance of Guardians of the Galaxy ($773m in 2014), Deadpool ($783m with an R-rating, sans 3D and without China) and Spider-Man 2 ($784m in 2004). It has already passed the likes of Amazing Spider-Man ($757m in 2012) and Maleficent ($758m in 2014). Again, $800 million worldwide isn't a guarantee, but if it catches fire in Japan on August 25th, well, that becomes more plausible every week."

Et voila! Wonder Woman is leaving her mark on the world and is going to be the one to thank for all the other superheroine movies that will be given the green light because Diana of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, left her home, took all the fire, and, in the name of all that is good in the world, proved superheroine movies could be so much more than anyone except Patty Jenkins believed they could be.

Hurrah and Huzzah!

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*

I enjoy your responses to my comments a great deal. It's fun when you respond in character. Or maybe I'm just very bored and easily amused. ;)

Thank you for saying you enjoy my comment responses. I am really glad you enjoy my in-character responses. I was not sure if that would seem corny of forced or fake but if I can pretend to be my characters like Fighttgirl gets to pretend to be her character, then it makes me happy to experience that a bit. I am happy I amuse you, hehe. *smiles*
