I'd call it using a reductive preconception to justify the holding of a strongly-felt belief

generalisation works fine too.

NYV: Why Aren't More Women Planning to See [TGRLW]?   Antibody on Dec 13, 16:32

The title gives of a masculine vibe on a female....women are still girly girls at the theater...hollywood does not get this!!! {nm}   1bloke on Dec 13, 16:43

Because they think DCraig is as sexy as a bowl of oatmeal? {nm}   islander on Dec 13, 16:43

He cleans up good for the Bond movies, but otherwise ... oatmeal. {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 13, 18:41

*Every* non-Bond movie he's made has been a b.o. disappointment. I don't think anyone likes him, almost even actively avoiding his films {nm}   islander on Dec 13, 19:05

Hmm... That's probably because of the way Fincher has gone with the project. And it might also have something to do with the   accountant_4_Jesus on Dec 13, 16:46

Apparently it's because women are "escapist, 'movie-date' oriented" *insert eyeroll here*   Jane_Citizen on Dec 13, 17:37

Maybe some of them are, and they just generalise for the rest using that brush. {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Dec 13, 17:47

I'm with you !! {nm}   grammar on Dec 13, 18:22

With that sentence, he's talking about horror movies, not female audiences. Instead, I'd make the generalisation that opening weekend   RogerMore on Dec 13, 19:34

oh you're right ... I haven't read that very closely ...    Jane_Citizen on Dec 13, 19:38

*sigh* correction: who don't know anything ...   Jane_Citizen on Dec 13, 19:41

I think that you actually had it correct the first time. {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Dec 13, 19:55

Awardsdaily via MCN: Sasha Stone on TRGLW, "What it feels like for a girl"   second gary on Dec 13, 18:27

interesting review   Jane_Citizen on Dec 13, 19:26

Yes, so am I. How can anyone not look forward to a David Fincher movie? And I'm enjoying the Reznor take on "Immigrant Song," too. {nm}   second gary on Dec 13, 19:42

I loved the series and loved the Swedish versions of the film. I'm looking forward to seeing the US version. {nm}   photochick814 on Dec 14, 07:24

Because the trailers look dull. Never head of the books, the promos don't grab my attention at all. {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 13, 18:46

how is that even possible, "never heard of the books" ... ?? gosh. {nm}   Jane_Citizen on Dec 13, 19:30

Are you Male/Female? {nm}   bloopster on Dec 13, 19:53

And are you alive/dead? {nm}   Roger More on Dec 13, 20:05

Female, either alive or functioning zombie since I'm posting. The books don't sound like something I'd be interested in any way. {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 13, 22:49

Not really a Fincher fan either. Except for Social Network, I find his movies boring and wouldn't recommend any of them. {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 13, 22:55

the books were red hot in 2008. Nice avatar btw {nm}   kydem on Dec 14, 03:54
