From the beginning of classic “Superman” back in 1978 to the climax of the “Avengers”’s union. the American superhero movies have now reached its peak. As far as the market expansion, superhero movies are undoubtedly the main force of the current Hollywood blockbuster. Especially since the year of 2010, there are at least five superhero movies would be screened every year.  With the development of the modern movie-making techniques, moviemakers now can make many tricks to present superheroes’ powers through the blue screen.Marvel Comic and DC Comic have grown from filming rookies to the big studios. Years of superhero movie development had caused cultural interpretation of superheroes’ social responsibility and ideology. However, the messages we received from this kind of movies are not always positive and correct. The audiences have been misdirected about the controversial issue of gender equality.

“Wonder Woman” is an exception. It is obvious from the movie title, the main character is a woman which is very seldom. There is few superhero movie about a woman who is heroic and positive. The plot is based on DC Comics of the story set during World War I.

Diana Prince is the Amazon princess who is also half man and half god. She lived in Paradise Island where only women are allowed to live. She was brought life by the king of gods Zeus, so she is the only baby on that island in over 500 years. They were living peacefully for hundred years. Until one day, a fighter plane crashed into the sea near Paradise Island. Diana saved the pilot named Steve and knew that that was a war going on on the outside world. However, her mother was not interested in “the war that can stop all the war.” Diana believes that this war must be manipulated  by the God of War Ares, and she think is her responsibility and destiny to save the world. Therefore she decided to go with Steve to the war front. Then, she experienced the malicious world and learned that this war was not control by human themselves.  At the same time, she felt the kindness in human and decided to fight for them after all.  Finally, she defeated Ares and been remembered as Wonder woman.

In China, boomerang kids would be considered they are economically failed. It is common for children to stay with their parents, but at the same time, they are not economically independent. The most important being talked about in China about boomerang kids is how can they date. How can their boyfriend or girlfriend get along with each other? Their date would probably think they are immature.

The photo of Bauman sitting in the wheelchair and looking at the stairs really got me moved. Jeff Bauman had his lower legs blown off in the first of two pressure cooker bombs that exploded at the Boston Marathon. This photo was taken after Bauman return from the energy. He could get out of the house more but he still cannot go upstairs yet. The simple action of going upstairs is an excessive demand for him. The angle of the photo been taken and the tone of the color really make people feel sad.

My favorite Movie is the Great Gatsby. Daisy Buchanan is the main female character in this movie. She is the woman Gatsby loves and died for. In her young age, She fell in love with Gatsby and promised to wait for him. However, Daisy decided not to wait for Gatsby when a rich, powerful man named Tom asked her to marry him. After few years, Gatsby came back for her with money and glory. Daisy cheated on her husband with Gatsby for “love” which is total unsense. She is portrayed as a material girl in the movie. I feel the women in this movie are just like the trophies for men to prove their accomplishment.
