If You Watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max, You Watched it Wrong

I was so excited about taking my oldest daughter, who’s eight, to see Wonder Woman 1984, but then I read the reviews. It was one negative comment after another and the disappointment set in quickly.

As a little girl that grew up in the early 80’s I remember watching Wonder Woman and wanting to be just like her. When Wonder Woman the movie came out in 2017, it was like I was 8 years old all over again. I was overcome with nostalgia of my childhood. The red and blue suit, the gold arm bands, and the feeling of the ultimate girl power.

I was determined I was going to see the new Wonder Women 1984 movie for myself and decide what my thought was on the movie. But I had to see it on the big screen. Luckily we have an amazing theater in Ridgeland, MS, B&B Theaters, that has been renovated to a state of art facility.

If you watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max, you watched it wrong.

Let me just say that if you watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max, you watched it wrong. Trust me! We got the opportunity to watch it on a ScreenX and it was like being in the movie. My daughter was mesmerized and I have to admit so was I. You can’t help but be caught up in the surround sound and picture; just the whole experience was unbelievable.

We had the best day at the movies enjoying some popcorn and our favorite Super hero. I encourage you to check your local theater’s safety protocols for Covid-19. B&B has done a wonderful job with sanitizing and making sure social distancing is in place throughout the building. Some theaters even allow you to rent out an entire screening room so your family can enjoy a movie privately.

“Because no matter how small an act of kindness or generosity or simple positivity you put out into the world, it will make a difference.” ~ Wonder Woman
