If Pete and I made a female empowerment film, would it be that or just a movie? What with our not being female I’m inclined to think it would be the latter, but Snow White and the Huntsman is a “fef”, and it was made by men. Specifically, it was made by three men. Four, if you count the director. But nevermind that. What’s really important is the movie itself. Ours would be about a lady who kicks ass and takes names. Theirs is about a lady who stares blankly, and has men save her ass for two hours. Where did we go wrong. Oh, but, she does give a speech in the Hunstman. Maybe that’s what puts it over the top. That and . The is a rather heavy spoiler, so I’m not going to say what it is. I will say it is female empowerment-ey, so, I don’t know. Points to the Hunstman. Oh, and, spoilers about there being a speech, I guess? While I’m doling it all out, there’s a dwarf who’s job it is to spout exposition. He sucks. Anyway, see the movie for yourself. Come to your own conclusion. Or don’t even think about it. It’s not a bad movie, but don’t see it if you can’t see it for less than twenty dollars. Maybe check it out on a cheap tuesday or something. It’s a beautiful movie with a wonderful score. The story and acting is pretty whatever, but come on. Fantasy!

Oh, and check out this free graphic novel. It’s one of the best things I’ve read in years, and, hey, it just so happens to be about a lady who kicks ass and takes names.
