ok honestly everyone NEEDS to watch sweet/vicious!! it didn’t catch onto me at first but TRUST ME now I’ve watched the first season and it is so good!! it’s about two girls who become vigilantes and beat up rapists. its a comedy but it’s got very good scenes and deals with dark subject matter as well. plus my favorite thing about it is that it focuses heavily on female friendships and hardly passes the reverse version of the bechdel test. IT’S A MUST WATCH and you can find the first season on putlocker <3
in talking w/ a friend about the princess leia comics, it’s come to my attention that said comics thus far have had a majority fail rate on the “reverse bechdel test” – aka, at no point in an issue do two named male characters have a conversation about anything other than a woman.
in fact the record as it stands is:
princess leia #001 – passes only if you consider luke and wedge’s three-line conversation (”red five, copy, could that be true?” / “making visual contact, red two. it’s an alluvial damper malfunction all right. / “shuttle’s looking wobbly, red five. give her a wide berth”) as not technically being about leia and evaan, but about their ship.
princess leia #002 – fails with flying colors
princess leia #003 – same
i, for one, support this agenda and would like to continue to see the tables be so dramatically turned
pride and prejudice and zombies??? PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.
you got badass ladies who spend their whole time kicking ass and taking names. you got gorgeous period dress. you got swoony (but still totally badass) romance. you got ZOMBIES. you got lena headey as lady catherine de bourgh the eyepatch-wearing legendary zombie slayer matriarch. you got sam riley as a gggrrrrrravelly zombie-slaying darcy in a trenchcoat. you got two hours of probably not passing the reverse bechdel test.
If you haven’t seen “Mad Max: Fury Road” yet, go see it. It’s the best action movie in years, and it barely passes the reverse Bechdel test: only once in it do two men speak to each other about anything besides a woman.
