Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue, will take a Black Widow dive into the history of female comic book/superhero movies starting with Jane Fonda's Barbarella before going into Wonder Woman and our hopes with Captain Marvel. The show will explore the common tropes in these films through a feminist, pop culture lens as well as why it took so long to get these movies done and done right. Plus representation issues (why is Storm still not done right guys?). As always, the show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.

“Shallow” From A Star Is Born Will Bring You Light Today

By Rachel Leishman on Thu,2:12
For months we've waited, anxiously sitting and wanting at least the soundtrack to keep us at bay until the movie came out, but unfortunately, the marketing for A Star Is Born is using supply and demand to get people interested in their film—meaning you don't get the soundtrack until the movie is already released in theaters.

By Kate Gardner on Thu,12:42
It is a truth universally acknowledged by the patriarchy that once school is back in session, there will be new rules about dress codes that are aimed at punishing young women because apparently young men (and their male teachers) cannot control themselves when they see shoulders or knees or anything.
