I don't feel that Mad Max came off as a feminist propaganda film at all. It basically has one strong female character and the rest of the women are all mostly damsels in distress. Mad Max himself, while not having many lines in the movie, was still very much the main character or at least the co-lead.
The Star Wars thing is just silly. Oh no, there's a black guy as a main character in the movie! How dare they! Nearly every other character in the movie is white or an alien or a robot.
Now one thing I will whole-heartedly support is how awful the new Ghostbusters movie looks. I am so utterly tired of how generic nearly every movie made in recent times feels. What a slap in the face to a beloved franchise.
Well I haven't seen either movie, but ya, you read crap like that lot on those MRA websites. Completely unfounded and just hateful. I mean the article clearly wasn't sober criticism. I always think it's funny guys complain about feminists and then refer to that website...
And star wars, maybe it's just me, but there seemed to be plenty of white people in the star movie. Judging by the trailer. And I hate people have to insist this or that fictional character should be a certain race. A while back I heard people bitching about a black actress not being black enough to play an historical black character
They're attacking all the wrong perpetrators. I do believe we have tons of feminist propaganda in video games and movies, but it's not in Mad Max or as extreme as the author is trying to make it. As for the term "white genocide" it only sounds racist because we're using "white" instead of any other ethnicity. If you said "Hispanic Genocide" people would agree and be sympathetic. So there is a growing double standard against whites, but again not in Star Wars and not to the extreme the authors are saying. .
Well Fury Road definitely is a feminist movie (which is not a bad thing), so the mra boys are at least right about something. The racists getting freaked out about star wars, however... My god, fuck them.
