Note that the observation isn't that it's a "feminist film", but that feminists reacted positively to it and that made it successful.
right, I don't think there's enough hollywood-going feminists to account for that difference

my argument is that women (not specifically feminists) enjoyed the movie and generated the positive word-of-mouth that gave it the nice long legs at the box office

this is such a dumb argument since it's rooted in the least fun semantics

justice league 5.5/10 this is really not that bad compared to bvs, even though it's sadder in that it takes no chances and is just doing all it can to be an avengers-type movie. there's an early scene with a muslim woman being terrorized by a white power skinhead guy wearing a hoodie with a death-metal-style logo on it reading MAGAHORDE :lol:

Justice League - 7/10

Seems like a lot of people hate this one, but I don't get why. The story's pretty thin and the villain's about as compelling as some of my less interesting bowel movements, but at least it's a story that makes sense, and the characters are all done well. Or maybe my standards for DC movies are so low after BvS that I'll accept just about anything.

Spider-Man Homecoming - 9/10

Jesus Christ, finally someone gets the Spider-Man movie right. And yes, I'm fine with Aunt Marisa.

going in with suuuuuuper low expectations absolutely helped me enjoy this one - similarly low expectations didn't help BvS though

Same here. I watched BvS long after it came out when everyone had already talked about how shitty it was, and it was the extended cut that at least adds a few scenes that kinda-sorta help the story make a little more sense, and it was still so bad that it made me angry.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (7/10) I saw this in the theater a million years ago and was not a fan at the time. Turns out I must have took it too teenage seriously, because what it really is, is a fourth wall breaking, self parodying, gonzo comedy for stoners. A lot of the kids comedy had a wink to adults in it. Drug and alcohol references, bestiality, and FUCKING SLAYER!

2 was my first Gremlins movie, so I'll always have a soft spot for it.

Also, the bad guy is obviously Donald Trump, so maybe I should watch it again.

Bill Gates/Trump fusion, but yeah... well, way more likable than Trump... actually, he's not a bad guy, really.

Oh, definitely. There’s a good colorizing B&W films dig in there.
