Everything you’ve heard about DC’s Wonder Woman is true. It’s a really good film–the best DC has managed to put out so far. It features a terrific script, stellar performances, an amazing musical score, and a full visual color spectrum. The film lives up to the hype and you should definitely make time to see it in theaters. However, there is one element of the film that has gotten less attention than these others. That is the fact that this movie is, in it’s own way, a coming of age story about the loss of innocence. In watching the movie and thinking about it in the days following my viewing, this idea kept coming to the forefront of my mind. I think it deserves to be highlighted, so here we go…

This will show my age, but the first Disney princess I remember is Ariel. I competed with my friends for the best mermaid hair in the pool, yearned for my own shimmering green tail, and sang Part of Your World so many times, my mom banned it from the house.

For the Love of…Zombies

For the Love of…Zombies

by: Ana

They look scary, they make scary sounds, and they will never stop trying to get what they want…human flesh.  They are…zombies.  Your favorite may be the slow moving, the fast running, or the intelligent and loving zombie capable of change, but regardless, all these creatures want to do is embrace you-and not in a fun “oh this person loves me so much” way.  More like in a “oh God, why didn’t I wear a protective helmet?” way.  Why do we fear zombies?  Why do we love zombies?  Geeks, let me take you through a blood splattered walk down memory lane, and we’ll figure it out together.
