Matt writes: We are certain that Roger Ebert would've been thrilled by director Patty Jenkins' recent record-shattering triumph. Her superhero blockbuster, "Wonder Woman," had the highest-grossing opening weekend for a film directed by a woman, and has earned widespread acclaim from both audiences and critics (including our own). It is only Jenkins' second feature, arriving 14 years after her astonishing debut, "Monster," which was hailed by Ebert as the best film of 2003, containing a performance by Charlize Theron that was dubbed by the critic as one of the greatest in cinema history (Theron went on to win the Best Actress Oscar).
