Movies

I will see both of them. I just don't believe in politicizing anything and everything. I see movies made by women all the time. It doesn't

Posted by: Facto on May 18, 22:44 in response to Peterlee's post I wish different kind of films to do well. I am glad...

matter to me if a movie's directed by a woman, produced by women, for women, or whatever - if I like it I like, it. If it's crap, it's crap.

And lauding women for doing this or that, because they are women, feels belittling to me. I want this gender-focus to be gone. I can't see it doing any good for most people. The tweet reply I re-posted here is valid, nonetheless. I'll repeat it:

"Oof. Can't get behind this tweet, Anna. Mad Max Fury Road was a feminist dream. Also, the writing in PP2 was just atrocious."Ā 

Anna Kendrick:" Half naked supermodels in Mad Max and y'all went to see awkward chicks sing and do **** jokes? This is a world I can... Peterlee May 18, 20:04

get behind" {nm} Peterlee May 18, 20:04

If this is really important to anyone here, then spend money on tickets only for movies made by women for women. Facto May 18, 22:18

I wish different kind of films to do well. I am glad that PITCH PERFECT 2 do great, and I also hope that MAD MAX would do better {nm} Peterlee May 18, 22:31

Could've been on life board instead. Zero relevance to anything movie trading. Facto May 18, 21:37

its related to movies. i think you missed the point. {nm} Moviesnob May 18, 21:50

Didn't say it wasn't related to movies. It's not in any way, shape or form related to trading. Facto May 18, 22:02

I see. you are welcome to leave anytime. if someone wants to have a discussion that a movie about women for women did well, most others will Moviesnob May 18, 22:05

Oh, I am welcome to leave at any time? If I happen to think that there are some suffocating displays of geekiness or the worst forms of Facto May 18, 22:09

dude, I'm a republican and I finished grad school in 99. you need to get your stereotypes in order {nm} Moviesnob May 18, 22:11

I am not a Republican and I am just going by what you write and what I read, not who you "are". Try to actually read, yourself. {nm} Facto May 18, 22:14

YOU are completely missing MY points. Have these boards attracted women? Have women asked for the support of any of you? Facto May 18, 22:17

Iam impressed. I didnt think the gay-bashing ultra religionist, fear based party had many who went past middle school. You a Millionaire? {nm} tenchi7 May 18, 23:41

Prejudge much? {nm} Bubba_Fett May 19, 04:28

This is all kinds of stupid. {nm} Juiced May 19, 06:52

And don't you guys attract a lot of women to these boards.......... {nm} Facto May 18, 22:11

Thank you, Moviesnob. I think she may point out a reason why MAD MAX can't get enough female audience Peterlee May 18, 22:18

cant agree with you more {nm} Moviesnob May 18, 22:20

There it is, then. The planet is saved. Facto May 18, 22:24

I miss Harvey Weinstein already... This is the kind of film Harvey can sell better than almost anyone... {nm} Peterlee May 18, 22:32

having loved the trailers, i am surprised to say this, but i think my dog could have done a better job than warner. {nm} Moviesnob May 18, 22:36

What did I miss - Weinstein's gone? From where?? {nm} Facto May 18, 22:41

What would women do without this amazing moral posturing. I can see how worried you are about female audiences and audiences in general Facto May 18, 22:22

Here's an interesting reply she got to that, on twitter itself: Facto May 18, 21:39

wow...wisdom in 140 characters or less {nm} tealfan May 18, 22:23

That's twitter 4ya. {nm} Facto May 18, 22:46

fenemist dream according to the men involved or who've seen it. why did 're that feminism translate to the marketing strategy? {nm} leo21 May 18, 22:52

Pease define feminist or feminism. Facto May 18, 22:58

That settles it -- I'm going to see Mad Max now. Thanks, Anna!! (nm) DTshakes May 18, 23:32

I guess we'll just have to see which one has the legs won't we? {nm} hyperzeitgeist May 19, 01:59

It has been fun watching this board meltdown the past 3 months over these 2 movies lacronka May 19, 04:58
