Females are Strong as Hell: A Wonder Woman Review

Females are Strong as Hell: A Wonder Woman Review

No spoilers are mentioned in this review.

It's here! We finally have our first fantastic female lead superhero film (Sorry Elektra and Catwoman)! If you were like me when you saw Batman vs. Superman you probably spent quite a bit of the film just wanting to see more Wonder Woman instead of well...

and now the film gods have heard us and we got what we wanted! Wonder Woman was such a great girl power film that tells you the origin story of Diana Princess of Themyscira and how she becomes Wonder Woman, after meeting a American soldier that she tries to stop World War I with.

Gal Gadot does a great job playing Wonder Woman, and there was just one small detail in the film that made me love her even more as Wonder Woman and it's just how she stands in a scene. There's a scene where she is dressed as her secret identity "Diana Prince" and she's telling a group of men how it is and she breaks into the iconic Wonder Woman kick butt stance.

Again it was such a small random detail added to the film but I absolutely loved it. Also speaking of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, I will let you know that there is sadly no spinning outfit transformation scene in this film.

There were a couple a plot points that were predictable, and if I am being honest some of it reminded me a bit of Captain America: The First Avenger, but not enough to ruin the film. Plus there is really one tiny plot point that did bother me, but it's so small that I won't spoil it for anyone, plus I'm pretty sure the Youtube series "How it Should Have Ended" will talk about it as well.

Overall it was a really good movie that I had a great time watching and I think anyone who loves a good superhero film will love it. It was definitely one of the best the DC has made and I am so glad to see a positive female role model on our screens this summer. In fact I liked it so much that I would rather get another Wonder Woman film later this year instead of "The Justice League".

I guess I'll also mention on a final note that Chris Pine was absolutely adorable in this film.

Final Score: 3.75/5

College Student Costume Party Ideas & Tips

Are you thinking of throwing a costume party on or off campus with your fellow classmates?

Before you start doing any planning, you’ll need to come up with some kind of a theme. As long as it’s something that would appeal to the majority of college students, it can be just about anything. Once you’ve decided what yours will be, you can start telling all your friends about the great party you’re about to throw for them. Here are some ideas to get you there.

Pirate Theme

Dressing like a pirate has become a popular trend nowadays and not without good reason. Pirates are respected individuals of the past and have a reputation for being both mysterious and in touch with their wild side. Can you think of anyone like this? As college students, you and your friends may find these to be familiar traits of your own, too. A room full of young people dressed as pirates sounds downright intriguing. Your guests are sure to play their roles well even if they aren’t any good at acting.

Medieval Characters

If you’re not into the whole pirate theme, you can always try a Medieval costume party. I’ve seen plenty of these on offer at Costume Collection so you shouldn’t have trouble finding the one to match your party theme. Since the costumes are quite unique and inviting all on their own, you won’t have to rely so much on your actual invitations for getting your friends to come. Whether you or your classmates choose to be a Medieval princess or a simple peasant, you can further set the theme, by using glassware that looks just like the ones that were used in that era. 

As a matter of fact, you can incorporate the theme into the food you’ll be serving in a few different ways. Cupcake sword and shield toppers, for example, will both excite and amuse your guests like nothing else will. You can be extremely creative with the Medieval theme. For this reason, your party will be a big success with even your hardest to please college friend.

Anime Characters

Your anime lover friends will absolutely love you for this, so don’t be afraid to clearly overdo it on this one. Ninjas, school girls, and demons, are all welcome guests at this party. White, vampire inspired candles with dripping blood and ninja star napkins are sure to impress these partygoers. If you want to make your costume party stand out from the others your friends have been to, you can try some of these ideas. You’ll make the overall atmosphere of the party even more fun, by getting everyone together to act out a scene or two from your favorite anime or manga.

What kind of a costume party do you want to throw? Now that you have some ideas, you can choose your favorite one and start planning for it. Whether you decide to go with the pirate, Medieval, or anime theme, your goal should be to make your party truly memorable. By achieving this, you can be confident that your guests will come to your next one and to the one after that. Also, it'll be great to be remembered as that cool college guy or girl that knew how to throw the best parties. By following these tips, you can make your party successful and your reputation shine.

30 Classic Vines To Awaken Your Once-Lifeless Soul

Vine is coming back and so is my happiness.

Vine, the beloved social media outlet that could turn six, short seconds into endless laughter. Every time someone quotes a vine, my once lifeless soul, is shortly awoken. When I hear the sweet sounds of "He on X games mode" or "I'm in me mum's car, broom broom," my eyes lighten-up and my heart skips a beat.

On behalf of society, I think it's reasonable for me to say: We miss you Vine.

We miss Gavin, Jared, Mrs. Kesha, and all the other weirdos Vine has blessed us with. But, as it's said, "in every darkness there's a light," and this light is Vine 2. Since there has been talk of Vine making a comeback, I have decided to create a list of some iconic vines that make me feel less deceased on the inside. Here are 30 Vines everyone needs in their life!
