Wonder Woman Review: Love's Power And War's Devastation

The newest DC flick provides insight about good versus evil and lives up to its high ratings

Wonder Woman Review: Love's Power And War's Devastation

It's time a female super hero film emerged among the latest Marvel releas"Wonder Woman" is one of the few movies that captivated my attention for a complete two hours and 21 minutes. The film truly lives up to its reputation and 92 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Although it's an action flick, there's a minimal amount of violence and the fighting scenes do not take away from the overall narrative. These scenes also contained well-designed special effects and slow motion, which created suspense. Furthermore, humorous lines appear in various scenes and add comedic relief to the film's intensity. The narrative was engaging and moved along. Dull moments rarely arose.

"Wonder Woman" effectively illustrated the realities of war. Pilot and spy Steve Trevor at one point told Diana that the British peopled lived in No Man's Land because the Germans would shoot them I'f they tried to cross the trench. In addition, Diana was sad that innocent people, including children, died and that marksmen shot their victims without knowing who they actually were. The movie reminds viewers that wars are brutal and that people fight for survival, even if it means some must perish.

Diana can inspire many people today because she commits to her task, even when others persuade her to give up. She also puts others first and never does anything for her own benefit. Diana doesn't even let her mother halt her pursuit of justice. She demonstrates courage throughout the narrative and frequently takes risks that endanger her life.

Diana's fight with Ares demonstrates how people can overcome evil if they push past dark forces and seek light. People in our world today may convince us to act dishonorably, but we must uphold integrity, overcome pressure , and act honorably.

The villains in "Wonder Woman" show how selfishness and corrupt thinking can motivate people to commit terrible crimes––the same sort of thinking that has caused other great conflicts in history and turned families and friends against each other.

Lastly, “Wonder Woman” conveys how humans are naturally sinful and no amount of wishful thinking can change that. Even the most loving people cannot transform the most malicious––each person is independent must choose good themselves. However, those who show kindness and mercy can catalyze change and transform the world around them. In the end, Diana learned that she can fight against evil, even although she cannot completely destroy war.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
