I got my July issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in the mail last week and normally I get joy out of reading my Cosmo magazine but I was shocked when I saw a certain article. The title is Why Do Summer Movies Suck For Women and if you read it the article states that and I quote " I learn of the summer blockbuster lineup-full of Razzie-worthy action sequels, Michael Bay's latest excuse to blow up stuff ". It then stated that women aren't interested in movies unless they follow these three rules
1. Has two or more women (who have names)
2.The Women talk to each other
3. They talk about something other than a man
The rules are fine but then they started to complain about The Avengers movie from last year which pulled in $600 million. I went to see The Avengers two times last year and I can safely say that the women in that movie kicked major butt! They also had names Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), Agent Maria Hill, there was also Pepper Potts (she had a small parts). I don't care what anyone says Black Widow was awesome I loved her so much and agent Maria Hill also kicked butt even taking on Loki for a bit in the beginning.
The article suggested movies like Bridesmaids,Pitch Perfect,and the new movie coming out this year called The To-Do List. I can tell you now that I have only seen one movie out of the three and the only reason we watched it was because I like Drew Barrymore. I don't really like Chick flicks very much and I would So choose a super hero movie or horror movie over a chick flick any day of the week. Another thing I read the plot of The To-Do List and it is as follows :
Brandy wants a sex experience before college, makes a list.
WTF that sounds so stupid to me!
The article then talks about another movie coming out this summer called Black Rock and here is the plot for that movie as well:
When a camping trip goes awry, three girlfriends bond over survival, not brunch.
....If I watch this movie at all it will be because it was on Netflix or something like that but I would not pay to go see it. The magazine suggests that most people won't go see this because it's about women and if it was about three guys the theater would be packed they then brought up the movie 127 Hours and I have never seen that movie either and I probably won't because I thought it sounded boring. To finish off this rant they had a meter on the side of the article with movies that you should go see with your girl friend or wife and movies that girls "wouldn't like". Guess what I like two movies on the No part of the meter and it says "Sucks for women" beside them. Those movies would be R.I.P.D. and of course 300: Rise of An Empire (which has not one but two kick butt females in it this year). I have prof Cosmo that you are false in the remark that summer sucks movie wise for women! I actually look forward to the summer movies and I am a female.
AND A LITTLE SOMETHING FROM BLACK WIDOW!
