my 7 year old son (astutely calling attention to the lack of female leads in action and adventure films).
While watching Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz flirt in POTC On Stranger Tides my son asked me “Why is there always romance in every movie?” He had asked the same question last week when we watched Kirsten Dunst and Toby Maguire have their memorable moment in the rain in Spiderman. He’s 7 and not a fan of kissing scenes. I try to explain that many people, especially adults, enjoy romance so it’s a popular thing in movies.
He responds with “So they always put a girl character in for someone to fall in love with?” And I am floored, because I realize the message Hollywood has sent my child is that you only need to include one female character - and it’s not so she can be the hero. If a 7 year old boy can recognize that women in action films are nothing but a plot device it is time for the film industry to admit they have a problem.
I think I’ve had this conversation with my sons, although less obvious than this one. Which is why this one made me do a double take and remember that it’s been discussed in our house, too. Huh.
Don’t underestimate what kids will notice.
My youngest will tell absolutely everyone how unfair it is that Black Widow doesn’t have her own movie, and that you can’t get an action figure of Maria Hill. He hasn’t seen all of the MCU, he doesn’t own all the action figures - but he’s noticed.
Boys notice, so do girls. And then it becomes normal and we have to UNLEARN IT. Not normalizing it in the first place is a lot easier.
Amy Ratcliffe shares her non-spoilery impressions of the Star Wars Rebels screening on IGN.
FANgirl contributor Kay spotted Hera and Sabine cosplayers at the screening on the headline banner for an article over at Fast Feed on the Google Glass ban at San Diego Comic-Con. She also points out that keen eyes might spy a cast member or two…
I love that picture of the cosplayers so much.
York Appreciation Post.
My contribution to RvB fic has been small this week, but i had to do something when I realized that Theta could now talk to Tucker.
After he has shouted himself hoarse, Tucker sits down on a lumpy berm next to a tire track and is grateful, maybe, that Church has the decency to float instead of sitting down like he’s a human being. Leaving his friends to follow Carolina’s cause, then leaving them to Chorus’ war and all the loss and blood that came with it, are enough without the stupid theatricality of a guy who can’t be tackled.
completelysane you have INSPIRED ME!!!
Savage would totally lose his cool under Ventress’ scrutiny, not to mention the fact that his younger brother’s default pace is scrappy verging on brutal. Any and all attempts to impress Asajj would go unnoticed too, because she can handle “those unruly Dathomiri Padawans” in a fight any day, and they know it. I’d like to think Savage is one of few asides the Masters that can shove Maul’s face in the dirt every once and a while to keep his ego in check, just because he knows him that well. Probably taught him how to fight dirty on Dathomir.
"The idea of Maul sparring with Savage because he beats up other academy younglings too quickly makes me grin too” Yesss. And then incorporating Dathomiri street fighting into Jedi technique.
Ooooh! I love Darth Maul AUs, but I never thought of adding Savage and Feral into them, so it’s been awesome to see your AU progress. Asajj and Yoda both could be in it!
Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack.
Oh hay look women of colour were an integral part of the ‘cool’ part of history too, how about that. They were like. Doing stuff that supposedly only heroic white dudes had done. That makes women valid participants in collective history now, right? Right? This is in high school history books now, right? Right? Huh?
It reminds me of that one famous painting/sculpture of the soldiers raising the flag
I like this one a lot better.
Been meaning to take a picture of this for 3 years.
Welcome to the corner of Leonard and Church in Lewisville, Texas.
