Happy 35th Anniversary to 2 seminal masterworks of 1982, Blade Runner and The Thing, the 2 very best of that year in my opinion, the former a sci-fi noir thriller and the other of sci-fi horror. Also, they're arguably their directors' best films.
Which do you prefer?
• Blade Runner for me, but still adore yet absolutely fear The Thing.

Wonder Woman (2017) "I can save today, you can save the world"
Wonder Women is movie I was skeptical about, though I was non the less excited due to the unbelievable amount of praise it was receiving. And I can safely say that I enjoyed this movie. It didn't blow me away in any way, but it was good.
I'll say right off the bat that Gal Gadot is perfect in the role of Wonder Woman. She carries the movie...along side Chris Pine who also gives a great performance. The chemistry sparks immediately between the two leads, and it leads to some incredible emotional moments.
The pacing is well done, perfectly spacing out the action sequences, but some of the action - especially towards the end - gets a little bit CGI heavy. But this doesn't get too much in the way due to how much of the film was fairly great. There's an action sequence involving the Amazon people which was amazingly done making me want to see more of them.
This film has more humour, which works really quite well, and I think it would've done better than having a gritty Wonder Women film which I don't think would work. I just don't see it working as well as it would with BvS.
I will say that the Amazonian accents did feel a little jarring at times with some not so good writing. There are some laughably bad lines.
"Where did this fog come from?" for example.
With that, there are some very expendable villains.
But we get a good memorable soundtrack, bringing back the fan-favourite Wonder Women theme from BvS.
Other than the wonderful chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, and the great action sequence involving the Amazon people, I have to say that it was alright. The chemistry between the leads were really the heart and soul of the film. They carried it.
It's still worth the watch. I'm probably in the minority on this one.
