Why I Didn’t Feel Empowered By ‘Wonder Woman’
Huffington Post - 8 months
I’ll just get this out front: I’m not your typical big box-office superhero moviegoer. Why? Because I don’t like the glorified violence, nor the gender stereotypes that one typically finds in these movies: man as hero; woman as love interest. So, when I first learned that Wonder Woman was coming out, I didn’t jump with excitement about seeing it. I was wary about the superhero formula. I knew, however, that I “should” be excited about the film, because it was the first female-directed superhero film with a female hero as the lead. This was clearly progress for the film industry and something for women in Hollywood to celebrate. A week before the release of “Wonder Woman,” I received multiple emails in my inbox from female filmmaker and feminist lists that I subscribe to, each encouraging me to see it on opening weekend to show Hollywood that a woman-led film can be a big box-office hit. I was in. I wanted to support the sisterhood. Although I couldn’t go opening weekend,...

How Wonder Woman Perpetuates A Dualistic Christian Worldview
Huffington Post - 8 months
SPOILER ALERT: This article will contain some spoilers. I went to see Wonder Woman last night ... for the second time.  It’s not what I would call a “great movie,” but it is great fun.  There are plenty of good reviews elsewhere. Here I’m going to address one aspect of the film that is generally overlooked in those reviews, and that is how the film perpetuates a dualistic Christian worldview. The Christianizing of Pagan Myth The first indication of this comes near the beginning of the movie, when we learn about the backstory of the film’s villain, the god of war, Ares.  We are told that Zeus created mankind to be righteous and good. But Ares, the God of War, grew envious of his father’s creation and “poisoned their hearts with jealousy and suspicion,” encouraging them to war. That’s when Zeus created the Amazons, a race of women who influenced men’s hearts with “love” (lust?) in the hope of restoring peace on earth. In the movie, Wonder Women is a daughter of Zeus, raised b...

One More (Feminist) Wonder About 'Wonder Woman': It Passes The Abuse Litmus Test
Huffington Post - 9 months
We live in an era marked by popular films that normalize violence against women, such as “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Twilight.” In these films, men use sexual coercion and other abuse strategies (e.g., name-calling, humiliation, and stalking) to control and harm women. Is this a problem? Sure it is, when you consider that popular culture sets an important underlying context for attitudes and behaviors. And when national research shows that violence affects at least one in four women across their lifetime. So, based on history, even though the 2017 blockbuster “Wonder Woman” moves from Hollywood fictional romance into superhero genre, I worried it might adhere to the status quo: where Diana Prince’s (aka, Wonder Woman’s) agency and self-determination are hampered by men who abuse and control her — in particular, Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s crime-stopping partner and romantic interest. Instead, magic bullet-proof bracelets aside, Wonder Woman breaks from the status quo: it d...

Watching This 'SNL' 'Handmaid's Tale' Skit Is Kind Of A Bummer
Huffington Post - 10 months
Things got real during this weekend’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” thanks to one “Handmaid’s Tale-”themed sketch.  In the skit, four women of the Republic of Gilead gather to discuss how they can resist the extremely oppressive regime controlling their lives and bodies. Then, they run into a couple of oblivious men, er, bros (Chris Pine and Mikey Day), whom they apparently used to be friends with. The men, who clearly care more about their parties than the well-being of their former friends, can’t seem to wrap their heads around why the “girl squad” hasn’t been around as much.  After the women inform the guys that the government took their money, jobs and children, they just stand there, confused as to why the women don’t just leave their unfortunate situations behind.  “You guys should, like, fight back,” Day’s character suggests, as if it were no big deal. In today’s political climate, it’s hard to turn Margaret Atwood’s dystopian fiction into a j...

Chris Pine Tries To Settle 'Hollywood Chris' Debate Once And For All
Huffington Post - 10 months
Unless you’re a really dedicated fan of the Chrises in Hollywood, you have to admit it’s hard to keep them all straight.  There’s Captain America, Chris Evans; Thor, Chris Hemsworth; Star-Lord, Chris Pratt; and Captain Kirk/Steve Trevor, Chris Pine.  Got that? No? OK. Well, let Chris Pine help you out.  During his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Pine performed a musical number set to Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” in hopes of helping viewers finally figure out which superhero Chris he is. Pine sang, “I’m not that Chris / I look just like him, but I’m not that Chris / Not Pratt or Hemsworth / I’m a different guy / Not Evans either / I’m my own cool vibe.” (Nope, he’s not Ryan Reynolds, either.)  Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon made cameos in the bit to keep the joke going before Pine finally belted out, “I’mmmmmmm Chris Pine!”  Watch the full segment above. -- This feed and its c...
