I’ve done some film-review posts and this is different. At least, mostly. I am just mining my netflix ‘list’ for films and series that have casts with many women or strong roles for women and which I have liked enough that I would watch again (or in some cases have already watched several times).
Star Wars (the Force Awakens) – Ray was so cool! (and ok, its not on netflix yet)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer -have to say though, there is a LOT of sexism and objectification in the series. There is also a lot of countering-sexism, and kicking-butt of those who objectify. Soooo…. I make no claims other than that I like the series anyway. And notice how I didn’t say ‘objectifying women’… unfortunately everyone is objectified in this show– and I mention it because it’s wrong. (fans get the reference? ok.)
Once Upon a Time -SO many strong female roles. It’s incredible. So happy.
Ghost Whisperer -JLH’s character is my favorite.
Populaire -in French. Spunky retro-style film.
Hjørdis -a Danish schoolteacher makes a difference about bullying. Beautiful story.
Cowgirls ‘N’ Angels -can’t remember it all that well.
Rosemary & Thyme -hehehe. (no really, that’s all I have to say)
The Secret of Moonacre -beautiful visuals!
Mona Lisa Smile – I reviewed this one.
Carolina -kinda weird but hey, aren’t we all?
The Last Keepers -Got to believe we are maaagicccck. Just kidding, that song is not in the film at all.
The Addams Family -always.
So there we have it! Watch them if you like. If you have some positive things to contribute, comment below.
