Jack Dawson… Penniless artist who wins a ticket onto Titanic in 1912, attends a first class dinner, develops a taste for the finer things in life, pockets the Heart of the Ocean, survives the sinking, pawns the diamond, spends the following ten years building his wealth and in 1922 moves to West Egg as Jay Gatsby… Millionaire with a shady past and fear of swimming pools.
4chan got a hold of my music blog and they’re being real mean. Sigh…didn’t ask for this. Any advice?
I’m thinking of ignoring it. It’s making me upset
I’ve been talking about how the studios are trying to figure women out and trying to put in something they want into their action/thriller movies. They see that dramas like The Notebook do well with an intense romance so they cram that into their James Bond movie and it’s a hot mess.
Another thing they try to do is put a “strong woman” in the lead or supporting role and let that sit there. Just because Scarlett Johansson kicked someone in the face I don’t have to see your movie.
Studios seem to think that women want to see other women doing the dirty work sometimes. Now it’s a great thought and a great step forward into equality but it’s usually done in such an awkward way that it doesn’t give the desired effect. I would say that the few times that it does work is when the female aspect is non-issue. In The Avengers, Black Widow is on the team and nobody references for a hot second that she’s a girl. She kicks ass like the guys, she talks like the guys and she gets to eat schwarma at the end with the guys.
