Wonder Women

Episode 75 – Wonder Women

In this episode, Liz and Heather, along with guest Kim Gordon, talk all about Wonder Women – not just the movie, but also the world of women directors and what we hope for the future! We give a few shout-outs right up front to the people who interacted with our Facebook page on the Name This Movie (with the wrong name) post.

We aren’t talking about the movie itself, but more about female directors, what this movie means for the industry going forward, and how the movie compared to the two DC movies that were released in 2016.

Costume-wise, we really liked what they did with Wonder Woman in that her armor is fairly realistic and could actually be fought in. She has flat shoes, leather shin guards that go over the knees and are bendable, etc. Her midriff isn’t hanging out, and it isn’t basically satin lingerie like Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman. The attention to detail was spot on! She wasn’t over-sexualized, and that is refreshing.

Rotten Tomatoes ratings on the recent D.C. Movies

  • Batman V. Superman: 27% (critics)
  • Suicide Squad: 25% (critics)
  • Wonder Woman: 92% (critics) [BOOM]

BTW – Dick Smackers is like the worst lip gloss flavor ever.

Female Directors

One of the biggest problems is that when we sit down and try to think of female directors, we could each come up with maybe four, and several of those we can’t even think of their names, we just know the movie. This is a serious problem, especially when one of the biggest female director in the industry can’t be mentioned without saying “ex-wife of James Cameron.” And if a female had two shit movies in a row, you would NEVER hear from them again. Unlike Zac Snyder and is shitstorm of crap movies getting one of the biggest franchises out there.

Here is the clip that Liz was talking about from Patton Oswalt’s Talking for Clapping standup

The Cocktails

Carla created a drink called The Jitters (after the CC Jitters character in The Flash). It consists of coffee liquor and honey-flavored vodka and can be either a shot or sipped. This one was good, and tasted a bit like a buttery nipple shot.

Liz has recycled a drink from before and renamed it (previously The Smuggler’s Delight) and now the Barry Allen. It consists of Dr. Pepper and Torched Cherry Rum. It doesn’t taste like alcohol, so drinkers beware!! It is quite delightful!

Heather’s drink is served hot and contains coffee, half an ounce of kaluha, plus vanilla vodka – this is Black Widow (aka the hot Russian).

We also took a little time to read some Yelp reviews on Houston-area strip clubs, based on the recommendation of our friend Liz Padjen. They are delightful! If you have a little time on a Wednesday night, check out this little corner of the internet you may not have visited. BTW – all chaps are assless. Also, buying dildos in front of friends and their mothers is weird. Just sayin… Wigs are fun. Party with the gays. These are just general suggestions for life. You’re welcome! And we don’t say “tabacky” in Texas. Boots are hard to wear.
