On Gaslight

On Gaslight

I have always loved Angela Lansbury, so of course I had to watch her film debut, Gaslight.

The Best and Worst of Farscape: Season 1

For previous installments: Season 4 Season 3 Season 2 This was one of the few shows I have been pleased enough to watch as it actually began.

On Pirates of the Caribean: On Stranger Tides

The sexism of the original theme ride, Pirates of the Caribbean, hasn’t been expunged from the film series, as often ‘Let Her Go’ is seen in the films, and all previous installments of the series, are still considered Damsel in Distress (see Feminist Frequency‘s Damsel in Distress series) within their core narratives.

The Best and Worst of Torchwood: Miracle Day

I have been quite a fan of Torchwood, a spin-off series of Doctor Who. Torchwood is based on the organization featured prominently during Doctor Who‘s Series 2 story arc, and the character, Captain Jack Harkness, featured during the end of Doctor Who Series 1. What makes it different from both Doctor Who and The Sarah … Continue reading

On Princess Mononoke

On Princess Mononoke

Ever since I saw Princess Mononoke, I loved it. I was particular fascinated by the gender dynamics with the fantasy story structure of spirits and gods. According to Deconstructed Gender Norms in Princess Mononoke: Anime reflects several of Japan’s fundamental beliefs concerning the role of the female in society. Unlike in the West, where comics and … Continue reading
