YouTube Selection: Just Write’s What Writers Should Learn From Wonder Woman

Bathos--it may be ruining popular dramatic moments.

All the Geeks around here loved Wonder Woman for a number of reasons.

YouTube essayist Just Write offers another reason to love Wonder Woman.

Just Write’s narrator has an issue with many recent movies, and that comes from overcharging the dramatic cost in a scene.  That’s where a scene that’s meant to be dramatic is undercut by inappropriate and mistimed jokes.  The video makes some pointed commentary about many recent MCU films.  Quite frankly, I liked a lot of the scenes and movies in question, but the video makes some great points about how the MCU is making dramatic errors while Wonder Woman managed to avoid them altogether.

Here, see the video and judge for yourself.

Interesting points, all told.
