feminist disney: a chat with mari rogers

Lou Heinrich
No comments

Pocahontas costumes appropriate racial stereotypes. Humour is a tool of oppression. Often, the only fat people on screen are villains. And Lizzie Maguire is still really fun to watch. Mari Rogers has been running her Feminist Disney blog since 2011, and covers these topics and much more. Through the lens of intersectional feminism, she examines…

seth macfarlane and the oscars: why are we defending him?

We all knew Seth MacFarlane was going to say something offensive right from the moment he stepped on stage at The Oscars. After all, Family Guy is a very offensive show—it plays off our idea of what is considered good and bad taste to great effect. Indeed, most humour is offensive. I myself initially laughed…

Seth MacFarlane is coming under fire for his hosting at the Oscars, in particular in regard to his “Boobs” song in which he points out various celebrities and what movies their boobs were shown in.

film review: cosmopolis

Natalie Salvo
No comments

At first glance, Cosmopolis has all the right ingredients to be a hit. A David Cronenberg film, it stars Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and includes cameos from the ultra-talented: Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti. But where it falls down is in the execution. This adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel was best left to the black and…

dvd review: the skin i live in

Natalie Salvo
One comment

The Skin I Live In is a provocative film. While some people will find elements of it titillating, others will no doubt find it extreme and even grotesque. It is a difficult film, a suspense-filled drama that is initially shrouded in many layers of ambiguity. The dramatic build-up does reach a serious climax, as all…
