Look here male journalists!
When are you going to get it that ONE film about women –“Sex and the City 2” -is not a film for ALL women? That’s 51% of the population! And less of the misogyny when YOU DO dismiss “Sex and the City 2.” I read it every day from male journalists -the same male journalists who orgasm over comic book hero movies. Yet you will notice very little, if any, negative press about the later movie genre. I’m not saying that comic book hero movies are bad. I love some of them but if I stated that in this article that would refer that “Sex and the City 2” is bad. I haven’t seen it, I don’t know.
When 70% of journalists are male, they write about the films they want to see and from a male perspective. Any film about women which doesn’t consist of said women taking off their clothes and being under the age of 25, is hurled at as some gross “chick flick.”
What male journalists fail to acknowledge is that “Sex and the City 2” is as much about Hollywood fantasy as “Iron Man.” Yet male journalists write about the former as if it is a true depiction of all women in the western world. They dismiss the movie because they don’t see that women AND men could ever be enthralled by high fashion in New York City; presuming we’d much rather see two men shoot each other. One genre isn’t better than the other. All I am asking for is a little fairness in journalism.
Why can’t male journalists write about what “Sex and the City 2” really is -a fantasy movie which alot of people will enjoy -despite the fact it has no guns and no comic book heroes?
Have I seen the first “Sex and the City?” Only on DVD. The film is a fantasy about four fortunate women who live it up in New York City. It’s pure escapism, just like “Iron Man.” Both movies have no bearing on my life and no similarities. When Carrie Bradshaw gushes at a new dress or a pair of shoes, this is dismissed by male journalists as the shallowness of money grubbing western women. When male movie characters gush over a new gun, no one blinks an eye and nothing is written about it. Take a look at the poster art for “The Losers,” starring Zoe Saldana. Instead of pontificating on the state of white middle-class women in America, isn’t it time that something was said about the total and absolute love of violence and the gun in this country?
Prince of Swine is a politically irreverent courtroom comedy that puts feminism on trial.
