I’ve desperately want to see Short Term 12 and just discovered it’s on Netflix Instant.
However I was about to go to bed…
This is the worst decision ever
Maybe I should use it as an incentive to do my work
So now that we’ve all gotten to see the first clip of “Girl Meets World” can we agree that it’s going to suck?
Like it might be good Disney tween show wise but as a spin-off it’s going to suck.
Current Disney is not the right format for a “Boy Meets World” spinoff. Their current shows don’t have the same depth as shows from the BMW era. It’s not going to be as mature.
So many people are going to be extremely disappointed when it premieres.
Forever amazed that I know someone who legitimately believes the second Harry Potter movie is the best.
We all know it’s the third.
I saw a documentary yesterday about Wonder Woman and the history of female superheroes in our cultural and it was so frustrating to watch. In one section they go on and on about how amazing the riot grrrl movement was and it completely ignores the racism that was a part of it. And they had Kathleen Hannah talking doing that part and she was bashing the Spice Girls and saying they weren’t real role models for girls which as a black girl pissed me off because unlike Bikini Kill they had a girl that looked like me, they weren’t part of a racist movement and they didn’t have racist lyrics.
When people are fighting for better roles for women in film, they tend to forget the women who are really needing representation.
I am quite disappointed in this documentary for not including actors like Pam Grier - who not only the first WOC* actress in a starring role but also an action star which paved the way for actresses like Milla Jovonovich, Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hamilton, to rising stars like Zoe Saldana, and Danai Gurira from the Walking Dead.
If we want to have more representation of people in the media we consume, we have to look into ALL of them, not just the white, cis heterosexual demographic.
(*- American actress, making this note in comparison to Asian, African and Latin-American actresses who have their own film history)
Yes!!! This perfectly sums up my feelings about the film.
