WHEN THE DIRECTOR ASKED THE MOVIE STAR TO DO THE SCENE AGAIN, SHE – – –
CTEERVREAOD = OVER REACTED
Happy Thursday, Jumble friends! The clue word choices were rather interesting for a Thursday. They weren’t overly difficult and were all solved in seconds which is uncommon for a puzzle near the end of the week. My choice for the most difficult anagram would be ACUTE because I’m guessing that some folks will think that it’s not spelled correctly unless it has 2 C’s. The X’s in EXERT and VORTEX narrowed the range of words that could be made making them instantly visible. Last but not least was PARODY which took an extra glance before coming into view making it the most challenging of the quartet for me.
Moving along to the cartoon, we see a couple of costumed characters that appear to be doing battle on a movie set. Reading the dialogue and sentence we discover that the director was not happy with the take and want’s to film it again. The actress doesn’t want to hear any of it and can be seen spreading her arms very wide and out to her sides in a motion that indicates that she’s had enough. The antagonist to our hero says “Now that’s anger!” and seems to agree with the director that the sequence was a bit off.
Kudos to Jeff for making the lead superhero a female as it’s uncommon in the comic book industry to have women in such powerful roles. This is changing with Wonder Woman doing phenomenally well at the box office and Captain Marvel making her way to the big screen early next year. I could care less if the lead character is female, male or alien as long as the story and acting are top notch!
The layout for the final solve allowed me to see OVER instantly upon writing out the letters. Crossing it out left REACTED to be found for a quick solve of this action packed Jumble.
