With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.
34 years later and this is STILL relevant
RIP to both of these great men.
This is why I’m glad there are people like Joss Whedon in Hollywood. But we need more women making movies.
The conversation has always been going on. So we keep pushing forward no matter what.
