Civil War: Trailer 2, The Best Shots (imo)

Civil War

Civil War

Know idea why Marvel doesn’t do at least SOME color correction etc so I did some for my favorite shots from the new trailer. Which are basically the storyboard.

Shadow

Poor Winter Soldier, Awesome shot of Cap and shield. Tony, his sad moment realizing he and Cap are enemies. OMG it’s T’Challa which sounds French toasty. Scarlet Bitch wailing on Vision. I guess we now know who in addition to Agent Carter is killed. The moment Tony decides he has to rip Cap in half. No battle screws with her hair. Vision goes down. Obligatory Hawkeye who should be home . No idea who this is. Iron Man about to blast Cap. Cap looking rougher than we’ve ever seen him. Team Cap, in the next frame Wanda starts to fly so that’s interesting. Team Tony.  IS THAT WEBBING? IS THAT? Webbing is confounding even for Cap. Classic shot. There he is, mashed with Cap.


Raza Raheel: Islamic Feminist & Reformer

Raza Raheel

Raza Raheel

Raza Raheel is an Islamic feminist and reformer from Pakistan living in Canada. She is an eloquent advocate for gender equality for Muslim women. So, of course, she is the object of death threats.

The death threats come from what she regards as radical Islam, and she includes considerably more people than ISIS. Where the practice of Islam includes the oppression of women, female genital mutilation, and the intense persecution and execution of LGBTs, she fights for reform. Islam is practiced this way by hundreds of millions of people in many countries.

Our perspective on civil rights– human rights–  needs to include more than America.  The way people stood up for racial, gender, and orientation equality here in the U.S. people need to stand up for people dominated by radical Islam. Drone strikes are not a strategy for fostering change in hundreds of millions of people.

A possible model for this is the anti-apartheid movement. End financial relations with these countries.

Islamic feminist reformers are core leaders for making things better for everyone. Raza’s efforts are of particular note.

Happy International Women’s Day.
