female films

Reblog this if you post about:

• Shakespeare
• The classics (Greek/Roman mythology etc)
• Films (specifically aesthetically pleasing films, French new wave, or female directors - but literally anything to do with films really)
• Languages/language learning (specifically french or Portuguese)
• Studying stuff in general
• Oxbridge admissions

And I’ll probably follow you
(Doesn’t hurt to give me a follow too)

I feel like one of the most ironically sexist things that happened to women heroes for so long was that they had universal storytelling taken away from them. So, male superheroes could have Lois Lane. They can have love, they can have vulnerability, they can have complexity. But women superheroes or strong women characters had to be, ‘I don’t need anyone, I’m the toughest person in the world.’ That’s not fair to anybody. No human being is an island like that.

WHY YOU SHOULD SEE ROUGH NIGHT

i got to see an early ~sneak preview~ of rough night and i can’t stop thinking about it so here’s why you should see it:

1) it’s really funny, i laughed my ass off
2) FEMALE FRIEND DRIVEN RATED R COMEDY (we need more of these)
3) FEMALE DIRECTED
4) CO WRITTEN BY A FEMALE
5) both of the writers work on broad city which is an excellent show
6) has a INTERRACIAL LESBIAN RELATIONSHIP that is treated like a totally normal thing w/o any stereotypes or sexualization
7) literally the women in this film are BADASS and all very unique and have real characterizations
8) the b-plot involves the bachelor party where all the men are just at a fancy wine tasting and talking about their insecurities
9) surprising co stars include: bo burnham, eric andre, ty burrell, demi moore, dean winters, and many more
10) everyone deserves to see scarjo wearing a 420 themed girl scouts costume

tldr please please please spend your money to have a good time and support this movie. we need more female helmed comedies, and as a female filmmaker it is really inspiring to see such great work being backed by major studios.

WONDER WOMAN Breaks Glass Ceiling For Female Directors & Stomps On ‘Iron Man’ With $100.5M Debut
The warrior princess of Themyscira is finally leaping past the century mark this weekend with $100.5M according to Warner Bros., however, other studios believe Wonder Woman has the power to exceed $101M.
By Anthony D'Alessandro

The success of Wonder Woman this weekend even impressed John Fithian, National Association of Theatre Owners CEO & President who exclaimed, ““I want to congratulate Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and Warner Bros on the terrific opening, but Wonder Woman’s success is everybody’s success. AT NATO, at CinemaCon, we have for years called for diversity in movies that match the diversity of our audiences, not just because it’s a good idea but because it’s good business.  What we really look forward to is the day when a movie directed by a woman and telling a woman’s story is no longer news because it was successful – or even that it was produced at all – because such movies should be a matter of routine. We will grow our audiences by telling more stories that tell their stories.”

Get to know me: Favorite Female Characters (9/50)
Trini (Power Rangers 2017)

Me and four kids from Angel Grove found a spaceship buried underground. I’m pretty sure I’m a superhero.

when i think of hugh jackman being wolverine for 17 years. it just reminds me that at the same time, halle berry was storm and anna paquin was rogue. those are 17 years we could of had a female driven superhero film and marvel did not do it. they didn’t even try. it’s 2017 and marvel’s had 17 years to give us better representation and they’ve done nothing 

Iiiiiiit’s that time again!

An animation update. This time of Anny! The more progress I make on the first act, the fewer shots I have that feature Anny which makes me sad. So, I’ve been trying to spread them out as I go. So many shots of Jon… so many..
