Ok the reason this is one of the best scenes I have ever seen in a movie is because they immediately establish Colette’s tough personality as traits of a boss NOT a bitch. Unlike far too many films (children’s and adults), this lead female doesn’t try to make herself stand out by saying something that undermines other women like “I’m not like most women who spend half the day worrying what they look like” or “I don’t sit around playing with makeup and dolls”. I am so sick of seeing female characters that are written as being proud of being strong, brave, or courageous despite them being a woman. AS IF BEING A WOMAN IS A HANDICAP AND THEY BEAT THE ODDS. Colette straight out calls the patriarchy and establishes the system between her and her subordinate. At the end she isn’t portrayed as bitchy, but as a leader, and Linguine is impressed, not put off. If a man is tough and takes no bullshit, he is admired and considered a strong leader and boss. If a woman does the same she is considered out of line, bossy, and bitchy.
Here, Colette is an immediate leader, and does not try and undermine herself or other women in order to prove that she is charge.
”It’s very flattering to be remembered as a Bond girl with brains and not just for looking good in a bikini. I was a fan of Sophie Marceau in ‘The World Is Not Enough.’ I think her performance was very underrated.” Eva Green
New petition to have all the delinquents + Luna and Emori live at ALIE’s mansion.
I mean, raven would be in the lab, Luna at the beach, Murphy and Emori would be dancing and cooking in the kitchen, Bell and Clarke could chill by the pool with Clarke drawing the landscape, Jasper could play with those toy cars from last episode, Octavia could hunt things in the forest, and Monty could look for herbs and make moonshine like first season. OH and Miller and Bryan could raise their chickens oh my god
