Black Panther Review PT1: STORYLINE, MAIN CHARACTERS AND REPRESENTATIONS

WHATTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

POPPPPPPPPPPINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ;-P :-))) 



positive - I actually really missed blogging and I think I might start getting back into it soon. Today I'm in quite a driven, work mode. This Tuesday I got to see Black Panther, one day after it premiered in my city! (London) :-)) Don't get me wrong, you don't have to love this post, just know this is my little working mode :-) I've been writing this review on one of my notepads, so I thought why not make this PT1? 

negative - please don't look at my other posts, I'm back and not only better..But I actually don't type rubbish anymore thank you 

LMAO I HAVEN'T BLOGGED IN 7 MONTHS WHO DO I ACTUALLY THINK I AM 

















RATING 


Black Panther falls in the genres of action, comedy and love. Based on an amazing city filled with highly advanced technology, 'Wakanda' has a substance that 'the world' is out for ; Vibranium. In most of the movie the character's refer to people who are not from the tribe as 'the world' as for many years they have attempted to keep Vibranium for themselves and succeeded. In my personal view, this was rather a protective decision than selfish. 
Onto the characters, every single one of them inspired me or somewhat touched me due to the fact that the movie showed a rich, indigenous African tribal culture that has never been betrayed so beautifully. ; especially in Marvel movies. If to be explained as if a pyramid, The King (Black Panther) would be at the top because of his unexplainable powers and abilities. Once a young man is chosen to be King, he is fed a magical flower which gives him the capabilities of the Black Panther. 
He is then buried in sand from the earth by younger children with spades. The combination of the crushed flower converted into liquid and the non-permanent burial in orders the King's subconscious to be lost deep, and speak to his father. It tends to re-play a past scene in their life, either something significant or a memorable childhood conversation/event. Second on the pyramid would be the warriors, whom in this movie were both men and women with strong fighting techniques and had a complexity to suffer from injury. 
The representation of powerful black women with either nicely styled afros, braids or bald heads was one of the best symbolisations from my perspective as a young black girl.




So..What made the characters different from each other then? 




Nakia (left)    Black Panther    Okoye (right)


 they are nothing alike




The contrast  between the characters Okoye and Nakia along with Black Panther and Erik stood out most in the film for me personally. Okoye represented a passionate black woman, careless of the stereotypes of femininity and was her OWN type of woman. Whereas Nakia was more soft, her character was important because often black woman's 'soft' femininity is not showed in the media as much, and in society is judged upon constantly. 

Black Panther, was also more of a humble, wise man, not as scared to accept challenges as he seemed, ready-for-his-title-as-king man. However, despite the fact that Black Panther had never done spiteful, regretful harm to any of the characters, 'Erik Killmonger' was more of a representation of the 'angry black man'.




That's what I've written so far



See youu next time xx

Pinterest, GCSE, Updates and Current Fav Songs

Hey guys!!!!!

It's Rukiya here 


A little bit of an update

I haven't posted since the 8th of May...Just over 2 months. For some reason I think of blogging all the time, but never actually get to it. But what I can say for sure is that the Instagram app has distracted me. 



But, see I haven't just been on Instagram, over these 2 months I've gotten more and more into drawing, eyebrows...eyes..face. I just LOVE drawing people or making up my own. I'll be sure to make a post about this all, but for now my goal is to continue to make a lot more pieces of artwork and find the right time to do so. Might as well share when I have something 'poppin' to share...You know?



Science. Science.










oh..It's science...
I need to work on science 
LMAO..HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I SAID THAT NOW ? 

*gets back into depressing mode..Slouches back..Oops..I heard a crack. Rolls eyes and continues the post*  ( I made this all up babes ) 

Some things I understand and I find interesting ; DNA and The Menstrual Cycle. Ionic bonding clicks to me too.

I need to learn to concentrate and try my hardest even if not feeling that comfortable in a classroom. I'm trying to work on revision for science.

My GCSE options are in! For anyone who doesn't live in the UK, GCSE'S are basically the huge deal in secondary school (11 year olds to 16 year olds). They are BIG tests which basically have a HUGE impact on our future; CV, job etc. I'm currently in Year 9 (13 to 14 year olds), next year I will be doing my mock exams (not that actual exams, but important important preparation for the BIG TESTS I told you about). 

I will be taking 
Art - 
All I have to do is make an effort and actually do exactly what I was told to make. That's difficult for me... basically I'm an idiot

Geography
I'm looking forward to taking Geography, as long as I focus, everything will be fine

Media - 
Social media, the film industry, the magazine industry..Kinda things like that. Definitely looking forward to it!

Dance
I LOVE DANCING. I have to start showing off and being more brave in what I do, how they gonna know you have talent if you don't show it? Next year (Year 10) I'm planning to be a lot more confident and if you keep saying it will happen then it would :-) 

Sociology - 
Crime, Injustice..A lot of things that interest me. I'm more than excited for this!



Wish me luck on my GCSE'S, 

When are you starting yours? 
Do you enjoy Science? 






Update pt2 - 2 Youtubers I'm Lovin'

LOVIN'...wHaTat? oH. PINTEREST


How. Can. Palm. Trees. Be. So. Amazing. 

My Pinterest reflects me, if you have no interest whatsoever in my Pinterest. Then it's cool. We just don't have as much in common


Honestly, Pinterest has so much cool things to save. I've been writing a post about 
"how-you-can-never-get-over-it", which I hope to publish soon. I feel as if I wouldn't of found proper inspiration if I hadn't made a Pinterest account, I mean you can't find all these cool stuff on google images. So I guess what I'm trying to say is a big tHaNk YoU to the people who recommended it ❤️





Do you have a Pinterest account?
What are your favourite songs lately? 
What Youtubers would you recommend? 

How's life?

#7DaysOfWILL - 5 Weird Things About Me

Hi, back for another post. 

I've decided I'm going to try the #7DaysOfWILL project that Lexie who blogs at
What Lexie Loves came up with us bloggers to do. I'm definitely determined to try it out, so take a look at it if you haven't already!

7DaysOfWILL is a project in which you post 7 times in a row, the project starts on the 8th of May..Which is today. 


#1 i'm a meme


I've been told by several people I'm a meme. My facial expressions make people laugh, idk. 





















#2 i love to imitate bitches in movies

Idk. It's just their personalities that crack me up. I mean have you watched this scene in the Bratz movie? This girl is damn insane...Talking about how fabulous she is and how superior she is. "It's me...On an elephant. Ugh! It's me time now.."









#3 I EAT LEMONS

I see lemon. Mi eat it. Is sour, but who flippin cares?? 







#4 i love acting crazy

Every once in a while you've got to shake it off and do your weird chicken/twerking thing right? You know..Break your back a few times? I'm just immature.   


No offence to Raven because that's not what she's doing. WORK IT GURL










#5 i'm scared of flies..In fact every insect tbh


When I see a fly you're gonna get pissed at me, because I have a panic attack and can't help myself but look for it. After it's reportedly 'gone' I still rub my skin and look around. 
p-h-o-b-i-a



So that's it, the end of the post. 

See ya

I'm Reading A Book.

Hey guyssssss

Ugh, I love blogging..It's just stressful that my ideas have flown out the window.


Today I'll be giving a mini review of the book I'm currently reading. What a surprise. I'm actually reading a book and I don't think I've properly read and finished a book in about a year or probably longer.

What drives me to read a book 

It's mainly what it's about. If it really interests me, it interests me. I added in the 'really' because unless a book 'really' interests me, I might not read it as fast.


My mum actually bought 2 books for both of us. I guess Regina George is gonna put me in her burn book now?


Rukiya $____ like reads a book and her mom reads them too. And she's like a total slut as well. 



 Apparently the book is quite popular right now. So far I'm on chapter 7 and I'm l-o-v-i-n-g it. 

What it's about...Or everything up to chapter 7. 

A 16 year old black teenager named Starr lives in the ghetto. She travels to a school in the suburbs, and won't let anyone think she has anything to do with the hood. At home it's Starr or 'Munch', but at school it's Starr Williamson. Williamson being the school name. Starr has witnessed a gruesome thing in the past when her neighbourhood friend got shot at quite a young age, the reason? Nothing. Skipping on from the past, she finds herself at a party in her area (Garden Heights) with her neighbourhood-sorta-friend Kenya who bashes her for going to a 'white school'. Meanwhile at the party, Kenya is urging to to fight a girl, getting annoyed at the fact she's looking at her but will still look at her because she wants to fight her. Kenya ends up leaving Starr, and Starr ends up reuniting with an 'old best friend neighbourhood friend'. If that makes any sense. They talk, but before you know it there's a shooting and everyone is running. Trying to find some sort of transport, assisting their danger.

Starr and her old friend manage to escape into his car. Lets just say. Police harrassment. Police brutality. Racism.

And before you know what Khalil sinks to the floor, his body being nothing more than a corpse. Blood flowing everywhere, like nothing more than another dead young black man.  
That's all I will give away for now *gets back to reading*


 It's like oh, this is my um... my Job? I have to serve and protect the people so I have to do my damn job. So..Oh no..I'm scared. He's like moved when I told him not to move. So..This is my job so um..I'll pull the trigger? Ok I'm pulling the trigger..I'm pulling the trigger. Oh I'll pull it again coz it's my job. And again. And one more time coz I'm scared and I need my teddy. Oh no he's dead..Oh. He's black anyway...I won't get in trouble. 




Hope you enjoyed my post, bye!

Analyse

       🤔🤔🤔  🤔🤔🤔  🤔🤔🤔  🤔🤔🤔  🤔🤔🤔  





Don't you ever feel like you can tell how someone's like just by looking in their eyes? Even sometimes what they've been through...It's like you can look in someones eyes and see everything.

I don't know wether I'm speaking a bunch of nonsense or if what I'm saying might make sense to certain people. So many people are afraid of being judged, they're afraid that if they say something or do something people will look at them a certain way as if they're odd. People are afraid of that judgemental look or that ignorant giggle or whisper..And being someone who analyses people's personalities I've come to a conclusion that people are the way they are always for a reason.

Some people have a 'RBF syndrome', this means that their natural face (with no expression) looks angry or annoyed. So imagine if you'd had this your whole life, what are you going to act like? Are you going to be happy and outgoing and get judged..Or are you going to be the personality your face suits you to be?




irdk bye.

The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin♥ ~ Review


Hellooo guys,

I'm back for another post. 

So over the half term a few weeks ago (I live in the UK, a half-term is a 1 week break) I went to see an amazing theatre play called 'The Bubbly black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin'. 

Summary

The play started off as a young bubbly black girl who was extremely optimistic. She was brought up in the 60s, un-aware of the racism at that time. The 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in 1963 worried her as a child. She dreamed to be a dancer, and it basically shows her growing up and the struggles she faced. As she grows up she starts to realise that she's been living in a 'bubble', floating over trouble. For instance, ignoring how her black boyfriend was treated by the police. It was funny to watch her grow up and watch her handle different situations.

The fashion to the sets to the acting to the music..It was all amazing. This play was entertaining, exciting and most importantly one of the best plays you'll ever see!

I think the message of this play was to be yourself, but don't run-away from what you are


- The things that made this musical special was - 
- The set and how it was arranged
- The fun songs (not too catchy but in a good way)
- The humour 
- How a change was always happening
- The fashion 

And yeah..Maybe there's more to the list but overall I really, really loved this play and if I could see it again I would. 

Here are some videos to wrap up the post









Have a nice day. Evening. Lunch. Dinner. Breakfast. Wherever you are in the world, bye!
