Wonder Woman Movie Challenge: Day #10: Gal Gadot's Quote About Wonder Woman


"I remember when we first met and started to talk about families and life, I told [Patty Jenkins] about my grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, and he had taught me that no matter how dark it gets in life, you need to find your inner light. Compassion is a very big thing. It was important to both of us that this movie has a profound message that everyone can relate to and take home and practice immediately."

"She [Wonder Woman] embodies all the most wonderful qualities that I love in people. She’s curious, warm, loving and inclusive. She assumes the best out of everyone. She’s curious and sassy and has her own attitude. At the same time, she’s not trying to be perfect. She can be very vulnerable and confused, but fixed on her mission. I love everything about her. Because she’s not perfect, but she’s whole and interesting."

~ Gal Gadot at the Wonder Woman Q&A in Los Angeles

Video: Captain America's Fight Scenes

From punching Nazis in Captain America: The First Avenger to fighting Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War, this is a good compilation of nearly all of Captain America's fight scenes from the movies.

Steve's fighting style is very scrappy, I feel like he pretty much taught himself how to fight. He did get a little bit of basic training while in the Army but once he became Captain America he was fighting with everything he had. So his moves are not perfect nor polished but kind of knock-down, drag-out at times using his enhanced strength to his advance to end the fight.


Beauty: e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow

Some of you might not know this but I've been using cruelty free beauty products for almost two years now. I would say that 99% of the products I use are cruelty free, there are a couple that I still haven't found a cruelty free version of yet. But I'm still on the look out for them.

Lately, I've been wondering why magazines don't feature more cruelty free beauty products. There are some that are shown but it's mainly non-cruelty free that are featured in beauty articles. So instead of waiting around for magazines to include more products I will start posting some that interest me. 

I was thinking about getting this e.l.f. eyeshadow, I love the colors. I was wondering if it's as rich and pigmented as it looks. It's definitely something I'm thinking about getting for the summer.

Wonder Woman Movie Challenge: Day #11: Movie Poster #6

Over the past few days Warner Bros. have been releasing a lot of posters for the Wonder Woman movie and each one has been unbelievable. Even though Wonder Woman is the focus of this poster, it's still nice to see Steve Trevor in the background. 

Book of Interest: Love and Other Alien Experiences

Oh, this looks like a fun read. According to the description, Mallory has not left her house in 67 days, she even attends school online. However, most of her time seems to be spent on her interest in aliens.

Although she doesn't physically go to school, in a surprising twist she was nominated for Homecoming Queen. I'm already adding this to my wishlist because I'm interested to see how this story will turn out.


Book: Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey

Publication: July 11, 2017

Description:

I'm never going outside again.

Mallory hasn't left the house in sixty-seven days -- since the day her dad left. She attends her classes via webcam, rarely leaves her room (much to her brother's chagrin), and spends most of her time watching The X-Files or chatting with the always obnoxious BeamMeUp on New Mexico's premier alien message board.

But when she's shockingly nominated for homecoming queen, her life takes a surprising turn. She slowly begins to open up to the world outside. And maybe if she can get her popular jock neighbor Brad Kirkpatrick to be her homecoming date, her classmates will stop calling her a freak.

In this heartwarming and humorous debut, Mallory discovers first love and the true meaning of home -- just by taking one small step outside her house.

DVD Tuesday: Get Out and Logan

What new releases are out this Tuesday that I want to see? Well, that's easy Get Out and Logan. I've heard so many good things about both movies with one considered to be an outstanding thriller and the other one of the best superhero movies. How could I not want to see them.

Are there any movies you're picking up this week?


Get Out


Description:

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.








Logan


Description:

In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) at a remote outpost on the Mexican border. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant (Dafne Keen) who is very much like him. Logan must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.

Wonder Woman Movie Challenge: Day #12: TV Spot #4: Power

One of my favorite lines in this trailer is "I will fight...for those who cannot fight for themselves" that is truly who Diana is.


Book of Interest: Josie and the Pussycats vol #1

I'm an Archie Comics fan and I'm so happy that the publisher has gotten a lot of renewed interest from fans (new and old). I love Josie and the Pussycats they're a great band and the comic books are fun to read. I really want to read this updated take on the characters, I will be adding this book to my wishlist.

Should Kid Flash Get A Spin Off Series?


I am generally not a fan of spin offs but I would love for Kid Flash a.k.a. Wally West to get his own TV series. With his own series, they could explore more of his character plus show more adventures that don't revolve around Barry Allen's Flash.

Although I'm only on season two of The Flash, I am enjoying ever scene that Keiynan Lonsdale appears in. He was the breakout character for me in this second season. I love that he brings out the playfulness in Wally who is supposed to be a fun character and Lonsdale has done a great job with his portrayal. But he also can carry the dramatic scenes as well since it's not all fun and games for Wally.

As I approach the end of watching season 2, I'm already planning on buying the third season when it's released on DVD/Blu-ray because I want to see more of Wally. He turned out to be a great addition to the series. Even though I highly doubt that Wally West will get his own series, all I can do is put it out there and hope that there is enough fan interest in this that one day it might happen.

What do you think, should Kid Flash get his own series?
