WW 1984

People who dislike a particular era or its aesthetics shouldn’t be allowed to present it. I grew up idolizing Wonder Woman so needless to say I am pissed about the recent WW 1984. Patty Jenkins made a film that was not only absurdly silly but was among the worst representations of the 1980’s I’ve ever seen. Nearly every shot had peoples’ hair and clothing wrong. I get that most modern women are such a bunch of lazy Walmart shoppers that they’re never classy enough to wear pantyhose but you don’t get to revise history because of it. Women wore hosiery ALL THE TIME in the 80s! (because they were classy) There were entire displays filled with those funny little eggs of L’eggs pantyhose in every grocery store in America. And yes, I love Lynda Carter with the sheer beige as part of her WW outfit. If Patty J or any other film-maker can’t get the era right, they should be locked in a room and forced to watch Glow or the entire series of Designing Women until they learn from it.
