As some of you know, I'm a big fan of the New York Times movie page. It makes me feel smart and cultured when I read it. (I apologise for your IQ bottoming out after reading my own humble blog)
I stumbled upon THIS article by Manohla Dargis. It's about the lack of female leads in this summer's Blockbuster season. The rant comes off a bit ultra-feminist and she loses her way a couple of times but she does make some points.
I hadn't even thought about it to tell you the truth, but all my heroes this summer are dudes. I don't really mind, and most actresses are probably after roles with a bit more substance, yet it would be pretty sweet to have Wonder Woman this summer alongside Batman, The Hulk, Indiana Jones and Iron Man.
I guess I've always been a tomboy at heart, but the grown up lady in me is just a tad upset at the lack of big-screen women in big budget leads this year.
Don't worry, I'll get over it.
